Magazine Layout Customization


Question

Hello! 

 

I was wondering how to create a magazine layout in DMS, like this: http://demo.cactusthemes.com/truemag/

 

 

Thanks in advance!

zabby Not sure what the code is you are adding, but not sure textbox is the best place to be adding it. I would personally plump for a Media box (which handles text and html) or PL NextBox, where there is an option to disable DMS padding. Additionally, PLNextBox is the only one that offers a true Full width. Not sure what you mean by the weird padding. On looking at the site, you appear to have a central text box where the app is working from and there is a function that is forcing the elements to fill the container. If it was in a PLNextbox full width, then your problem might go away (though certainly looks far from disastrous :)

HI,

 

It's really hard to tell from that image, if that is a slider or not. Either way, it is possible with DMS to create any kind of layout you like, we already include a Magazine style blog layout. However, judging from the image you have attached, I would say to achieve a similar layout, you will likely need to either create your own section, view our store to see if there is anything similar or check out the WordPress plugins repo.

Danny,

 

Thank you so much for the information. That image is of a full-width slider, where each image is linked to a post. I've toyed around with different slider options and can't seem to recreate it. Is this something I could do or is it better to hire a DMS developer?

 

Thanks again,

 

Natalie

Well the great thing about WordPress is that it's plugin community is vast. Therefore, me personally I would try searching the WordPress plugin repository for a Post slider and see what comes up. To implement most of these sliders you can either use the shortcode if the plugin supports it to your page content area via the WordPress page editor or use a hook.

 

If you want a custom slider developed to your preference, then you will want to contact one of the developers via our resources page - http://docs.pagelines.com/resources

Thank you Danny and "GetMeWebDesign" for the info. I purchased Essential Grid, which looks like it'll do what I want it to. http://www.thereadyman.com

 

Last question, I have the code for the slider from Essential Grid, but how do I insert it so that it is full-width without weird padding. Right now I'm using the "text" function and it's adding that padding you're seeing.

 

Thank you so much for the help,

 

Natalie

If you're adding the code into a textbox section, click on the edit icon to access the section options. There's an option for setting the padding inside of the textbox options - http://screencast.com/t/pyEyVV9tiX

zabby OK... just watched their video. Shortcode in a text box is a no-no. PlNext box please, content or full width, assuming you do not want to use a hook, which is what Danny would recommend
