Hi, Add the following code to your custom CSS.

.postpin { background: white; }

Please search our forums, before posting!

1) What would the code be needed if I wanted to add an image to the background of each of the post pins? 2) Is there anyway to change the 'pin' to show the author of the post at the bottom of the pin in a different color? Like pinterest.com has for all its pins? 3) How would you add the share button functionality when a user hover's the cursor over the image? Is this possible? I think this plugin could be extremely powerful if the pagelines' developers continue devloping it and releasing new updates. Keep it going! Thanks.

To answer your questions: 1.

.postpin {background-image:url('thefullurltoyourimage.jpg');}

2. You could probably achieve the addition of author information using a hook. However, that might affect the look and structure of your pins. It wouldn't be a supported customization. 3. This is a rather intense customization for which I'd recommend using one of our Pros. http://www.pagelines.com/pros

Here is a piece of code where you can change the color of the title, the font weight, font family, line height and some slick shadow also. Just change the valuaes for the color code to the ones you want and remove the lines you don't need.

.headline, .pin-title {

color: #9090AB;

font-family: myHelveticaLight, "open sans", tahoma, arial, sans-serif;

font-size: 24px;

font-size-adjust: none;

font-stretch: normal;

font-style: normal;

font-variant: normal;

font-weight: 300;

letter-spacing: 0px;

line-height: 40px;

text-shadow: 0px 1px 0px rgba(255,255,255,0.8)!important;

I feel like an idiot.  But there are no directions on just installing it.  Load the folder "pagelines-postpins" where?

      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.
      Best regards,

      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!
