This extension requires:

  • Nova 2.6+
  • Nova Extension jquery


Copy the entire directory into applications/extensions/IndexCards.

Add the following to application/config/extensions.php:

$config['extensions']['enabled'][] = 'IndexCards';


To define a card, go to Site Management > Messages and Titles and then Add New Message. For the new message, give it a message key of index-card-whatever, where whatever is a unique name for the card you're adding. Then, when you go to your site's main index, it will show a new card beneath the welcome message.

If you wish to give the card a footer, create a new message with the key of footer-index-card-whatever, where whatever matches the name of the card you wish to apply the footer to.

Cards will be ordered on the page in alphabetical order of the unique name you give the card.
