Blog post selector

This tutorial demonstrates how to add a Blog posts selector in a widget's designer view.

For details about the content selector, see Use content item selectors.

PREREQUISITES: You created at least one Blog, so that the selector can use it. For more information, see Sitefinity: Blogs and blog posts.

In your DesignerView.YourView.cshtml file, place one of the following tags anywhere in the HTML code:

Single item selection:

Multiple items selection:

The values of the attributes are scope properties that you define in the MVC widget controller.

Attribute Description
sf-selected-item-id Single select only. Stores the ID of the selected item. 
sf-selected-item  Single select only. Stores the serialized information of the selected item.
sf-selected-ids Multi select only. Stores the IDs of the selected items. 
sf-selected-items Multi select only. Stores the serialized information of the selected items. 
sf-provider Configures the provider to use when retrieving the items to display.
sf-master Defines whether the selector displays blog posts and their statuses, such as DraftLocked, and so on, or only published blog posts. To configure the Blog post selector to display master items, that is, all blog posts, independently of their status, set the sf-master="true". By default, the selector displays only live blog posts and the value of the sf-master is set to false.

NOTE: When you set the sf-master="true", the selectors lists the items but does not display their status.
