CatLoop CatLoop show image

Question

Posted · Report post

2 questions.

 

#1. CatLoop is referred to by Pagelines as a "Section", however, it appears as a Plugin in CPanel.

 

#2. I would like to add a hook to include the image that appears in the post. Is this okay to do?

 

Thank you!

Hi Suzy,

 

For CatLoop to display an image on the posts, wherever the section is placed, you need to:

a) set up a featured image for the posts using the option in the post edit section of your wordpress site.

B) make sure that, under PageLines > Site Options > Blog and Posts in the area Post Thumbnail Placement you have selected Category Lists or, if you are using Magazine Mode, In Post Clips.

 

If you don't set up a featured image to your posts and set up your PL theme to show them, they will not appear without using a plugin or custom code that will set the first image in your post as the featured image.

 

As for the plugin/section isssue, I am sorry, I can't replicate the issue. I installed the section fresh on a blog with the most recent version of WordPress (3.5) and PageLines (2.4) with a child theme developed from the Base Theme and CatLoop is located where it should appear.

 

I hope this solves your current issues. Please refer to the email reply I sent you earlier today for other issues you raised in your email request for support. Let me know if you need more assistance.

Hi, Anthalis! You're the greatest. I had to select cat lists.

 

Here's the weird thing w the plugin/section issue. (Maybe it's not a weird thing at all, maybe I just don't understand.

 

In any case, SimonSez (ha!) that this is the correct structure, the section w/in the plugin. Go figure.

 

THANK YOU!
