Announcements, featured posts etc, several same components but different content?

My goal is to promote different things, for example in the front page. I can use Announcements, featured posts and so on.

I want that I have, for example Announcements, several locations in the front page. All of the Announcements (components) should have different content.

Nowadays we have only one Announcement component. If I add second one to the different location content is still same.

How to solve this?

We had an announcements card scroller/carousel component written for us. It's being used on an internal-only category at the moment, but it's proven itself to be working well and it's likely that I'll move it to the home page in the not-too-distant future.

It works based on custom content, so it can be different per-node.

Instead of using the Announcements component, use the Custom Content components. They work the same way as Announcements, except unlimited (If I am understanding the ask right).

If you want to show different content streams from specific nodes, that's more challenging today - You can use the content syndication component to technically build different 'feeds' in a sense, but out of box Khoros doesn't provide any great ways to display node specific content from different nodes. (We built our own message feeds to do all of this).

If you visit our homepage for example, the first 4 articles on community.anaplan.com are actually determined by a in-house component sitting inside "Custom Content 1" - Our content team just modifies the 'articleIds' to show whichever articles they want there. Same component is then used all over the place to pull in different content, regardless of where it is posted.

<div class="single-column margin-bottom-30 margin-top-30">
<@component id="message-feed"
showFilters="false"
showStatusFilter="false"
cardStyle="article-tiles"
boardIds="communitykb,Community_Blog,HowTo"
showLastEdited="true"
sectionTitle="Explore the Community"
sectionSubTitle=""
sortBy="post_time"
limitMessages="4"
readMoreLinkText=""
columns="4"
showMisc="false"
fixedRatio="9:5.4"
loadMore="false"
showArticleTitle="true"
charactersLimit="173"
articleIds="105273,105881,105533,104187"
showTeaserText="true"
/>
</div>

Thanks, both of you.

I know we can build (almost) everything what we need by our own. Situation is that we try to avoid custom components. Platform should offer components for this kind of need, I don't think we are the only one who wants to promote content in different places (several positions in one page).

@TeroRe,

You are definitely not the only one.  We would love for more options out of the box.  I do know from 17 years with a software company however, you can never think of everything for everyone.

I suspect it might be best to see what components are being proposed in the ideas section. I would be happy to lend my vote if you find any.

I honestly haven't spent much time in ideas. I am lucky to have a knowledgeable component builder on my team in @gdawson.

Yeah I know there are us much needs as there are people. But. I know there are platforms who have this in use OOO. This isnt any special need.

I am happy for you. I have just me, and I have also moderators. I dont have inhouse developer (or any other people), we use external agency and they are doing great job but it is totally different than you just say to your team mate "please do this".
