Demo, related posts are above the pagination.

Bootscore v5.3.1 added a hook to all single-*.php‘s:

<?php if (function_exists('bootscore_related_posts')) bootscore_related_posts(); ?>

bs Swiper hooks related posts there showing the latest 12 posts from the same category. This means that the category should have at least 4 posts to show the related posts correctly.

Filters

Add filters to child’s functions.php.

Change heading ‘You might also like’:

/**
 * Change related posts heading
 */
function change_related_posts_heading($title) {
  return 'Also very interesting...';
}
add_filter('bootscore/bs-swiper/related-posts/heading', 'change_related_posts_heading');

Remove related posts:

/**
 * Disable related posts
 */
add_filter('bootscore_disable_related_posts', '__return_true');

Overriding templates via theme

Template files can be found within the /bs-swiper/templates/ plugin directory.

Edit files in an upgrade-safe way using overrides. Copy the template into a directory within your theme named bs-swiper keeping the same file structure but removing the templates subdirectory. Path must be your-theme/bs-swiper/[file].php.

The copied file will now override the bs Swiper template file. Change cards, classes or HTML as you want.

Templates that can be overridden

  • related-posts.php
  • sc-swiper-card.php
  • sc-swiper-card-autoplay.php
  • sc-swiper-card-product.php
  • sc-swiper-hero.php
  • sc-swiper-hero-fade.php

    Thank you so much for that code base and how to add an image overlay on swiper.

    says:

    Hi,
    when i add short code to page e.g
    [bs-swiper-card type="post" category="equal-height" order="DESC" orderby="date" posts="4"]
    nothing happens..?
    Is there something else i’m missing here?

    Thanks

    • Basti

      says:

      Do you use a category named “equal-height” on your site? Replace that with slug from your category.

    Oh, whoops!? Got it.
    Thanks

    Hi,
    how do I find the ID of parent taxonomy? I have [bs-swiper-hero type="job_listing" tax="job_listing_category" cat_parent="39" order="DESC" orderby="date" posts="10"] 39 is the ID of the job listing page..

    Thanks

    • Basti

      says:

      You will find id when you edit taxonomy/category in backend in the URL. For example &tag_ID=116. In this case id is 116.

    HI,
    [bs-swiper-hero type="post" category="test" order="DESC" orderby="date" posts="3"]

    Doesn’t work for me with 3 posts with the category of ‘test’ displays nothing…

    Why would this be? any ideas?

    Thanks

    • Basti

      says:

      Please share a link to the site with embed shortcode and a link to one of the posts in this category.

  • Andrew

    says:

    Hi,
    Sorry, working on this locally. Not sure what’s going on there.. the cards work no problem with products (using woocommerce) I thought the problem with the slider may be I’m using wp job manager that has seperate ‘categories’ (custom posts?) Job_listing_category job_listings so I tested it with wp regular categories and posts. Can’t get any of the shortcodes to work: child, custom post, page, post..any ideas? Thanks,
    Andrew

    [bs-swiper-hero type="job_listing" tax="job_listing_category" cat_parent="39" order="DESC" orderby="date" posts="3"]

    Not sure if I have the ‘type’ and ‘tax’ right here..?

    many thanks!

      You should use card template. Heroes need a featured image to work and jobs plugin has no featured image.

    Oh, o.k. bummer! Hey thanks a lot for checking it out. Much appreciated.

    says:

    Hello.
    Is it possible to change the item-count in view?
    4 in Desktop is too cluttered for me. Would gladly switch to 3.

    • Basti

      says:

      Hello Henry,

      you can change this in js/swiper-init.js https://github.com/bootscore/bs-swiper/blob/main/js/swiper-init.js. There you will find slidesPerView: 4,. Change this to 3.

      Important! If you edit the plugin files, make sure that you have disabled the update checker. Open plugin main.php and delete snippet in lines 12 to 18.

      // Update checker
      require 'update/update-checker.php';
      $myUpdateChecker = Puc_v4_Factory::buildUpdateChecker(
      	'https://bootscore.me/wp-content/plugins/bs-swiper-main/update/plugin.json',
      	__FILE__, //Full path to the main plugin file or functions.php.
      	'bs-swiper-main'
      );

    Hey Basti,

    Thanks for creating Bootscore – I love it! It has saved me many hours.

    I have a problem though, I am trying to display products using the BS Swiper plugin and your shortcode [bs-swiper-card-product order="ASC" orderby="date" posts="24" category="products"]

    For some reason, nothing is being displayed when I use the shortcode. I setup a new WordPress installation and installed the latest Bootscore, Bootcommerce Child Theme & BS Swiper and still the sortcode does nothing.

    Is there anything obvious that might cause this?

    Thanks,
    Luke

    • Basti

      says:

      Hi Luke,

      thank you. Do you have a category named “products” on your site? Change this with your category slug.
