Carousel in Content Area

carousel content area

Best Answer Danny , 27 September 2012 - 08:00 AM

Hi,

I am unsure of the reason as to why the Carousel is not available in the Content Area. However, you can change this if you like, although we will be unable to support you should you run into any errors.

To add Carousel support for the Content Area do the following:

1. Download a fresh a copy of PageLines Framework.
2. Navigate to sections/carousel and then open the Carousel's section.php file in a text editor.
3. Replace this code:

 
<?php
/*
Section: Carousel
Author: PageLines
Author URI: http://www.pagelines.com
Description: Creates a flickr, nextgen, or featured image carousel.
Class Name: PageLinesCarousel
Cloning: true
Workswith: content, header, footer
Edition: pro
*/

With this:

 
<?php
/*
Section: Carousel
Author: PageLines
Author URI: http://www.pagelines.com
Description: Creates a flickr, nextgen, or featured image carousel.
Class Name: PageLinesCarousel
Cloning: true
Workswith: templates, main, content, header, footer
Edition: pro
*/

4. Then save your changes.
5. Now you need to upload (via FTP) the Carousel folder containing the edited section.php file to either:
a) Your child themes section folder - wp-content/themes/child-theme/sections/
B) If you're not using a child theme, then upload the folder here - wp-content/plugins/pagelines-sections/
6. Once the folder has been uploaded, go to Wordpress Admin Dashboard > PageLines > Store and do nothing (simply refreshes the store).
7. Once the store has loaded, go to Wordpress Admin Dashboard > PageLines > Drag and Drop.
8 You should now see the Carousel section in the Content Area.

Please bear in mind that this type of customisation is not supported. Go to the full post

Why isn't it possible to add a Carousel into the Content Area via Drag and drop? Why do we have that limitation or am I doing something wrong?

Danny's Answer helped also me.

 

I hope in the next PageLines-Updates that this will consist the Update-Progress...

 

Thanks a lot.
