Articles Advanced Widget

The Articles Advanced Widget is an easily embeddable JavaScript module so your site can have a philanthropy knowledge hub. The widget is responsive and configurable to easily fit in within your site.

Including the widget on your site is easy. The only requirement is an API-Key which you can get from your Giving Compass contact.

Embedded Widget Code

You can display the widget embedded on a page by adding the Vue component.

Start by including the widget script:

<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>
<link href=";500&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">

Then place the following code on your site where you want the widget to display:

<gc-wc-articles api-key="MY_API_KEY"></gc-wc-articles>

Additional attributes can be added to customize the look of the widget.

<gc-wc-articles api-key="MY_API_KEY" per-page="10" render-list-as="list" width="300px"></gc-wc-articles>

Additional Customization

The following attributes can be added to the component code to add further customization.

*By default the widget is responsive with a minimum width of 200px and will resize based on the containing wrapper it is placed in. By setting the width or max-width this behavior is overridden.

Changing to list view for mobile

The widget will render as a tile or link unless explicitly changed. If you would like to switch to a link list for certain views, then change the render-list-as attribute when your code detects the view criteria. Remember to change the value back in the reverse case.
