3 Boxes plus Sidebar

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I would like to add a sidebar to my home page (Box Page - 3 boxes) as well as my other Box Style Pages . I have been able to add a sidebar to a Post Page. I may be running the older version of Pagelines Platform Pro because there is a note at the top of the docs page that says "legacy docs" and click here for the new Pagelines Framework docs. Does the new version have the option of placing a sidebar to the right of 3 boxes? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Kelly

Hi Kelly If you want to add a side bar to those pages using platform pro you'd need to add a sidebar to the site globally using the dropdown menu, and then hide it on the pages where it wasn't required. The new Pagelines Framework will allow you to do this on a per page basis, why not take a test drive of the framework to try it out at http://demo.pagelines.me/


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Thank Jamie - but when I go to the global settings using the drop down menu and drag and drop the universal sidebar into the template section I still don't get the sidebar properly aligned underneath the feature slider. It appears below the 3 boxes. Does the new framework adjust the width of the 3 boxes to accommodate the sidebar so that it reads: box box box sidebar? Thank you so much for responding - I've been trying to work this out for a long time. Kelly

Kelli, shoot us a screen shot of the template setup in the PlatformPro Drag & Drop area. I'd like to see the order in which the elements are placed. Boxes in PlatformPro are by default, full width. Yes, PageLines' Framework does allow boxes with a sidebar. PlatformPro doesn't. That said, there's a workaround for PlatformPro. A plugin called Boxer (free at WordPress.org) which allows you to use something called Content Blocks (same as boxes) placed via shortcode into the content area of a page. That lets you have a sidebar. Since we're moving further and further towards improvements of Framework (and consequently further away from PlatformPro), it might be well worth taking the plunge and trying the new product in the demo as Jamie suggested.

      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,

      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!
