change elements order in blog excerpt mode

Recommended Posts

evert100

Hi, I like this order when using blog excerpts, what i would like is: 1. section "post-title-section" 2. featured image 3. blog content This option is not possible through the pagelines dashboard. I want a solution which remains intact after a pagelines update. What is "the royal approach" here? I am a pagelines lover, css expert but no php programmer. So help is appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Evert. I'm not really sure what type of layout you're wanting. Could you make a mock-up for us?

Hi Jenny, Here my image to show it. It's quite easy as you can see what i want. I just don't want to dig in the code and loose it with the next update. If you can show me how to... I know it for next times. mockup-excerpt.jpg Live see: http://edugram.nl/blog-edugram/ (these are the excerpts) Thanx, Evert

Evert, If they can't be realigned with CSS, then the best way would be to clone the section and manipulate the order there. I do know PHP, but such a customization is only available through the Pros, not the forum. It's important to make sure that this is done professionally as it involves the actual loop. While we apply the style and some ordering options, the core file there, I believe, is actually a WP file.

I changed the code directly, so you loose it with update. It's only one line of code. But the pageliners didn't want to help me unless they got paid, so i did it myself. I would like to learn to do it and save it with updates. Good luck. Take care you can damage things. So make an update of the file or don't do it at all.
