Hello, I bought the new PostPins section (awesome!) and I would like to use it with the categories pages. How to display posts relative to a category page? I mean: when I click on a specific category page (with Post Pins section enabled of course) I'd like to display only posts relative to this category. Thank you for your help! Jean-Philippe

Hi Jean-Philippe, Unfortunately, this is not currently possible at this moment in time. We have had a similar request with the Feature Slider, therefore I have added this to our tracker as a feature enhancement.

Hey Jean Move the Post Pins section into your category template. This way, you can use it for a category view. Also, to hide the other stuff, we can use some css for the time being if you'd like. Nick

Hi @beardedavenger, Here's the new website I'm working on:

I added the PostPins section in my category template. As you can see, I can't display posts relative to a specific category.

I have a thought on how to do it on a per category basis. What you need to do is add the category to your menu, so you have individual categories when you click that link. Then visit WP -> PageLines -> Page Options -> Category Page -> PostPins. Set it up how you want but leave the "Pin Post Category" as show all. Let us know how it goes!

Thank you for you answer @simple_mama. Sorry but I think I don't understand what you mean because actually the different links you see on my main menu bar are : ??? "?? LA UNE" = homepage (with Latest Blog entries section) ??? "MAT?‰RIEL", "TECHNO", "SERVICES"... are already category links (PostPins section enabled, "show all" option)

@pross : Thank you Simon. Should I copy/paste these lines of code into wp-content > plugins > pagelines-customize > functions.php?

@pross @simple_mama @Danny @beardedavenger : I've just found a trick to display posts relative to a specific category. In PageLines > Drag & Drop 1) Create as much templates as you have categories 2) Insert PostPins section into each template you created In WordPress control panel 3) Create as much page as you have categories 4) Set a different template for each page 5) Set a different Pin Post Category for each page in PageLines Meta Settings It works! But, of course, it would be better that PostPins section auto detect a category (when inserted in a category template I mean). Jean-Philippe

The categories filter worked like a charm. Thanks for sharing the code.
