The following can be done with just few steps in KVS:

Step 1. Go to Website UI -> Pages -> Index page editor and insert list_categories block into the desired place in page template:

{{insert name="getBlock" block_id="list_categories" block_name="Categories And Videos"}}

Save.

 

Step 2. Now you should see Categories And Videos block in the list of blocks on Index page. Open it for editing and configure the following settings:

  • Cache lifetime (s): 3600
  • items_per_page (Integer): set 0 if you want to display all categories; otherwise set the max number of categories
  • sort_by (Sorting): configure sorting as needed
  • pull_videos (On/Off): enable
  • pull_videos_count (Integer): set the number of videos for each category (in our example it is 3)
  • pull_videos_sort_by (Sorting): set sorting for videos under each category

NOTE: if you want that only certain subset of categories are displayed, you may need to enable some filters under Static filters parameters.

In Template code specify this code (the code is given for KVS default theme and 5.2.0 version, it may not work in earlier versions):

{{foreach item="item_category" from=$data}}
    <div class="headline">
        <h2>{{$item_category.title}}</h2>
    </div>

    <div class="box">
        <div class="list-videos">
            <div class="margin-fix" id="{{$block_uid}}_items">
                {{if count($item_category.videos)>0}}
                    {{foreach item="item" from=$item_category.videos}}
                        <div class="item {{if $item.is_private==1}}private{{elseif $item.is_private==2}}premium{{/if}} {{if $item.status_id==0}}disabled{{elseif $item.status_id==2}}error{{elseif $item.status_id!=1}}processing{{/if}}">
                            <a {{if $item.view_page_url!=''}}href="{{$item.view_page_url}}"{{/if}} title="{{$item.title}}" {{if $item.rotator_params!=''}}data-rt="{{$item.rotator_params|replace:"pqr=":""}}"{{/if}}>
