Can anyone think of a method that would add a section below featured slider to show blog roll?

Also can I show posts within featured slider, like last 5 posts or featured posts?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

If I understand you correctly, what you would need to do is first enable the "Enable Feature Metapanel on Posts?". When you go edit/create a post, under the PageLines Meta Settings will be a new settings panel with options on adding your post(s) to the feature slider.

You will then also need to set your Feature Slider to display posts.

Then if you wish to display posts below the Feature Slider, depending on which page you add the feature slider, you can either create a custom loop section to display your posts or use a plugin such as Special Recent Posts.


Please search our forums, before posting!

Hey, thank you for the solution. But, this style seems to fancy :) I just want to have a feature slider (like its defult stlye) and below it a list of blog entries, not like a fancy fox :)

What I like to achieve is more like,


<table width="320" border="1">

  <tr>

    <td width="84">Thumbnail</td>

    <td width="220"><h2>Post Title</h2>

    <p>Post Excerpt</p></td>

  </tr>

  <tr>

    <td width="84">Thumbnail</td>

    <td width="220"><h2>Post Title</h2>

    <p>Post Excerpt</p></td>

  </tr>

  <tr>

    <td width="84">Thumbnail</td>

    <td width="220"><h2>Post Title</h2>

    <p>Post Excerpt</p></td>

  </tr>

</table>

it should not be that complicated but i cannot find how to make it:( (i guess:))

It's not complicated, but if you're going to make a big customization like that, you'll need to avoid tables (HTML tables are best suited for laying out data rather than layouts on webpages). An alternative would be to use custom CSS to simplify everything.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

      Hi,
      Is it possible to add a sidebar only for one post category? Without adding extra plugins or editing the theme code? 
      I have 4 categories of posts (blog post, news, job listing, case studies) but I want to have a sidebar only for the blog posts to appear. 
      How can I do that? 
      Thanks!

      Hi all,
      I was totally excited to find out about 'CSS Hero' (http://www.csshero.org) I read about it in the compatible plugins section of the PL5 docs (http://www.pagelines.com/resources/compatible-plugins) For me it's a great way to more easily customize my sites because I'm not a CSS pro.
      I'm wondering about one thing though… Does anyone know if using this will result in a heavy penalty on page loading speeds? Would love to start using it but only if it doesn't cost too much in terms of speed.
      Thanks, Jan

      Dear fellow forum members,
      It has been months, if not years, since I got the latest DMS version. And I haven't been able to get myself to install it on my blog...
      A few months ago I took on a new job and I now know for sure I will never get to it.
      So, my question: is there anyone out there who is experienced with DMS and would be willing to do this for me.
      In all honesty, I will need help with everything, from rethinking the content (structure), to deciding on illustrations and colours. 
      I am though, willing to pay for this.
      Thanks in advance for your kind answers.

      Trying to adjust the position of the background image on http://churchofwolves.com/. I need the wolf background to move over to the left on mobile versions so it can be seen. Here's the code I'm using and it's not working. I've tried a bunch of different things. Getting frustrated. Any advice?
      @media (max-width: 768px) { .home .site-wrap{ background: url(http://churchofwolves.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Church-of-Wolves-bkgd1.jpg); -webkit-background-size: cover; -moz-background-size: cover; -o-background-size: cover; background-size: cover; background-position: 100% 0%; } }
