A Daily Calendar of Saints: A Synaxarion for Today’s North American Church is (quite clearly) a Saints-type resource and is already categorized as a Calendar Devotional, but I can't make a Saints-class Homepage card out of it. Just a Daily Devotional one.

This is particularly unfortunate because of the inferior quality of the homepage card produced. (Cf. https://feedback.faithlife.com/boards/logos-desktop-app/posts/584 )

I was able to prioritize Farley and it shows up when I click on my lectionary study from the home page. Is that what you are trying to accomplish?

I must be missing something.. I have two separate resources that seem to read the same. One labeled as Eastern Saints from Farley which is I made a homepage card. The other shows up as a devotion in my lectionary study. Both resources say Farley

It does not show up. Eastern Saints shows up. Eastern Saints contains some of the same material, but if you compare them side-by-side, you will see that A Daily Calendar of Saints has more content. (It's pretty clear that A Daily Calendar of Saints is the real book that Eastern Saints was derived from.)

Today seems to be a prime example, eastern saints reads the same but is a bit shorter. Both are from Farley but if you look at the copyright on eastern saints it shows no publishing company. I also notice that eastern saints has timeline tagging where the other does not. My guess is we will not see daily calendar in the cards. I think eastern saints is meant to replace it. It would be great if we had a fl associate explain the reasoning and confirm what's happening and why we have the almost duplicate resource

Eastern Saints has existed for a number of years. The resource I am concerned about, A Daily Calendar of Saints: A Synaxarion for Today’s North American Church, is new to the Faithlife ecosystem. Eastern Saints was created way back when to mimic the in-house Saints resource, which is Catholic (and draws principally from the Latin church's liturgical celebrations).

What I want is to be able to create a Saints card on the home page for A Daily Calendar of Saints: A Synaxarion for Today’s North American Church. The fact that I can't is a relatively small oversight that I expect Kyle will rectify when he sees this thread, probably this coming week.

Bump.

Sorry about that! I missed this thread.

This has been fixed. A Daily Calendar of Saints should now appear as a Home Card option.

Excellent, thank you! I have added it to my Home page. Big Smile

One question, though... it's showing "november 12" rather than "November 12", as I would have expected... all of my other Saints Cards show their titles/dates in sentence casing. Is this a bug, typo, or something else?

Interesting. It's bug-ish. The font-styling in the resource is that it transforms small font into uppercase (presumably to match the print, I haven't checked). I'm guessing the rendering agent in the Saints Card throws out the styling.

That makes sense. The Saints Card still beats the Calendar Devotional Card by miles for my purposes, so I don't mind so much.

EDIT: Somewhat more bothersome is that the Saints Card lacks the italicized subheading for the day, i.e., the name of the Saint, so that the title of the card is "november 12" and the displayed text begins "John was born of wealthy parents in Cyprus...", but "St. John the Merciful, Archbishop of Alexandria" is wholly omitted until one clicks on the card and opens the actual resource. Given that tomorrow's main text begins "John was born in 347 in Antioch", it should be clear that these Saints Cards are now generating a daily guessing game as to which Saint is featured. And no, I won't spoil it for tomorrow. Wink
