Add iTunes to Social Icon in BrandNav

Recommended Posts

illinimatt81

I'd like to add an iTunes icon that links to my podcast page on iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/runner-academy-matt-johnson/id551103126) Here is what I am looking to achieve http://www.screencast.com/t/Pl6jBXjbtBzX I have two iTunes logos in the correct size, one for the normal state and one for the hover state so that it can behave like the other social icons out of the box. I've know I need to somehow use a "hook" but after reading on here and reviewing this tutorial from Joel (http://www.joelcarlo.net/using-hooks-to-customize-your-pagelines-framework-brandnav/) I am still at a loss. Can someone point me in the right direction to accomplish this?

In order to add a hook properly, you will need to make sure you have either of the following: -The base theme: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Use_the_Base_Theme -PageLines Customize plugin: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Use_the_PageLines_Customize_Plugin Pick one or the other depending on which one would be most fitting for you. Once you have one of them set up, you're ready to implement a basic hook (I'll use the tutorial as a guide but I'll provide more specific instructions).

I have the pagelines customize plugin already installed so I will go with that.

Okay, we'll look at this first piece of code from the tutorial:

add_action('brandnav_after_nav', 'brandnav_icons');
	function brandnav_icons() { ?>
	
  • facebook.png
  • twitter.png
<?php }[/code] Notice this first part:
[code]add_action('brandnav_after_nav', 'brandnav_icons'); function brandnav_icons() { ?>

brandnav_after_nav is the hook. This is what determines where your desired content is placed. It's pretty easy to understand since hooks are named accordingly. In this case, brandnav_after_nav means that the content you place in this hook will be placed after the brand navigation. Does that make sense? brandnav_icons is the name given to the content you want to add. You can name it however you'd like, but it's best to give it a descriptive name so that you know what it's for. This name is supposed to go in two places (as shown in the code above).

So far this makes sense, but I believe I might need to create an image sprite or reference a mouseover/ahover image file in addition to the regular display state so it will be highlighted when you mouseover like the other icons, correct?

If you want a specific iTunes image to appear, yes, you need an image for it. Should you want a hover activity, then it must have an alternative image for the action.

Hi

There seems to be part of the tutorial missing - broken images, I'd really like to see the whole thing. If you get a chance Catrina could you replace them.

Many thanks

Hi Fitan, yes of course

Okay, we'll look at this first piece of code from the tutorial:

add_action('brandnav_after_nav', 'brandnav_icons');

function brandnav_icons() { ?>

<ul>

<li><a href="http://www.facebook.com/mysite"; target="blank"><img src="http://www.mysite.co....png"></a></li>;

<li><a href="#"><img src="http://www.mysite.co....png"></a></li>;

</ul>

<?php }

Notice this first part:

add_action('brandnav_after_nav', 'brandnav_icons');

function brandnav_icons() { ?>

brandnav_after_nav is the hook. This is what determines where your desired content is placed. It's pretty easy to understand since hooks are named accordingly. In this case, brandnav_after_nav means that the content you place in this hook will be placed after the brand navigation. Does that make sense?

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
