Problem with feature page as front/blog page

Question

Posted · Report post

Hello, I've a problem here. I set up the front pages with feature template. The page is also my post page. If in Settings/Reading I set the page as Static page - Front Page I can see the feature panels and specify the ID page in Feature Setup but if I set the page as Static Page - Post Page the only way to see my feature panels is to remove the page ID in Feature Setup. What can I do to solve the problem? I was also wonderinf if there is a way to set some feature panel without text and just with a full width image without padding around. I checked Firebug but I don't know exactly if it's the right tool here. the website url: http.//www.jerrymagni.com/wp/ Thanks in advance.

Do you want to hide the feature panels in certain pages? Is that why you want to use the feature template as the front page? There is a way to set the the feature panel with text. It will just require custom CSS to hide the text and other content. Firebug can be used to determine the selectors (for the non-image content) you need to use in the CSS.

I just want different feature pages, obviously with different feature slides. but it seems I cannot specify pages ID for specific slides if they are displaying on the PostPage. I understand I can use Firebug, but I don't want to modify every feature slide, just dome of them with a full width image. Please try to be much specific as you can, I'm not a CSS expert so I need to know exactly where and what to do. I hope my requests are clearer now. thanks

I solved the issue about a full size image in feature slide using an image as a background, even if at right there is a black space between the end of the background image and the border of the feature panel! Any suggestion? And still I don't know how to solve about feture slide disappearing on post-page when I assign a page ID to the slides...

In regard to the Feature image with no text: Create an image the exact size needed 960px per 330px (if you have kept the default size) Select: Full Width Media or Image - No Text

Thanks but I'm using StationPro and there isn't that option so I guess I'll keep it in "my way" :) I'm still struggling to understand how I can have specific feature slides in posts page as front page :(

I'm still struggling to understand how I can have specific feature slides in posts page as front page Do you mean that you want specific features to show in the posts page and specific features elsewhere where the slider is enabled?

There can only be one feature slider displaying one specific set of features. I think if you want to display specific features on each page, you'll need to use a different slider that will allow you to do that.

I know it. My problem is another. I want to have different feature slides in different pages. I know how to do it, but I want specific feature slides on my front page that is also my post page. If I specify the page ID in Feature Setup the feature slides I want to be there disappear from my posts page. I think it's a bug in StationPro. is it clearer now?

Hmmm I think is because the PAGE ID option for the feature slides isn't possible with the blog page bc the blog page has no actual page meta ID...what if you duplicated the slide and didn't specify with that one and you did with another?

If I don't specify the ID the feature slides will appear in every page in which I use the Feature Template. I guess I should specify the pages in which I don't want those feature slides to appear, but I don't know how to do it.

You'll need to know the page ID numbers for those specific pages, which can be identified by viewing the source and looking at the top. It should look like this: body.page-id-# (# is replaced by the ID number for that page).

Ok, it works, but in that way I cannot display any other feature slide in those pages... I'll try to be as specific as possible. I want to set different feature slides on different pages. Since it seems that the posts page has no meta ID I need to find a way to avoid other feature template pages from displaying the feature slides I set exclusively for the home/posts page. Can anyone help me? This issue is becoming a nightmare....

Oh, you can't currently choose different feature sets for different posts pages, only on static pages can you select the feature set under Pagelines Meta Settings -> Feature Slider Section on the post-edit page.

I just want to have different feature sets in different static pages. My problem is that my front page is also my posts page and I need to find a way to hide the feature set in other pages. Is it possible? And where I should put the code? I checked but I didn't found Pagelines/feature slider section in post-edit page. I'm using StationPro

I think Jimmy (kastelic) thought you were using PlatformPro, not StationPro, so that's why the settings are different. You can hide the feature set in other pages by using custom CSS. You just need to know the page IDs for the pages where you want the feature slider to be hidden so they can be used in the CSS.

I tried to put that code in Custom CSS, of course I changed the id of the page and the ID of the feature but nothing changed, the feature slides were still there, also in other pages :/

You need to make sure the code looks like this:

.page-id-15 #feature,
	.page-id-16 #feature,
	.page-id-17 #feature {display:none}

I did but if I use that code every feature in the specified page disappear. I don't want to eliminate every feature slides, I want just to don't show the feature slides that are in my home/posts page. if I use: .page-id-165 #feature {display:none} every feature slides disappear if I try to change the code nothing happen...

Oh, so you want the slider on those pages you just want to omit specific slides? If you go to edit each feature slide, theres a field called "Display Pages", where you can choose with page id's you want to display that feature. Sorry for the confusion.

yes, that's right, and I knew it but I have some problem here, my front page is also my posts page and as "cmunns" said: [the PAGE ID option for the feature slides isn't possible with the blog page bc the blog page has no actual page meta ID...], say that; I have to find a way to avoid that the feature set of my home page appears also on other pages with a feature template. To be clear as much as I can: my home/posts page: http://jerrymagni.com/wp/ is using a feature-template and have this feature slides (home1, 2 and 3). which I can not assign a page ID my portfolio: http://jerrymagni.com/wp/portfolio/ is using a feature-template and have assigned the feature slides "port1", 2 and 3 but, because I cannot assign a Page ID to the slides of the home page, I can see also the feature slides of the home page and it's what I want to avoid. I'm totally new to the CSS scripting, so I don't know how to proceed; even if I'm pretty sure the solution is just under the corner Can you help me?
