Customised Brand-Callout-Social Section

Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a custom section where the branding and the social bar and a callour are all in one.

The left side of the section will be the logo. The right side will have a phone number and then immediately below it will be the social icons.

So far I have managed to edit the callout section to remove the CTA button and move the Header to the right. Is it possible to overlay 2 sections in Pagelines? If not, I will have to look at writing a custom section for the brand-Social-CTA - I would like to avoid it if possible so I thought I'd ask if overlaying 2 sections is possible?

Thanks

Amit

Hi Amit,

Would it be possible for you to create a concept image so we can understand what it is you're trying to do. Once we have this information, we will be able to assist you further.

Currently I have the Callout Section followed by the Branding section (or the Brandnav section)currently.gif

I would like to remove the callout header text from the right hand side and just over lay the rest on top of the brandnav section. I tried adding z-index property to the callout section so it overlays on the brandnav but I was not successful in changing the layout so they occupy the same physical space on the site?

What I would like to have is something like:

You can accomplish the goal you set above using the Branding section and a hook that will add_content_before_icons.

This should be fairly simple.

I am newbie when it comes to hooks - please point me to the relevant documentation. Incidentally, I created a new section (Features with an Optional widget) - I want to be able to use both the custom section and the default features section - is that possible? I think it should be possible but I am using the control for the default features in my custom section - any tips?

At the moment, my customisations control the feature

If I specify the widget shortcode, then the feature reduces in width to accommodate the widget otherwise it takes up the 100% width of the feature space.

Ah yes - got it working using a hook - thanks. Incidentally, how can I see the hooks available for each section in the WP Pagelines interface? Like in your "Using your first hook" video?

There is a free plugin available in the PageLines store called "Action Map". Once activated, refresh your website and in the top left hand corner of your Wordpress Adminbar there will be a new link called Action Map. Clicking this will reload your page with all available hooks visible.

You can also see a complete list of hooks/filters here:

      Hello There,
      So i want to use platform 5 and DMS sections on a single page, i am using a child theme with pinspro as my main theme and i activated platform 5, the only problem am having so far is the fixed option, my navbars are not aligning to their default size, and it will be great if platform 5 header and footer section will function, has anyone used this option, how can i make the best use of platform 5 and DMS on a site
      Cheers

      Hi,
      I tried to make a simple change on my opt-in page today by reordering two sections.
      Now they won't save and whatever I do, the same 2 section will be stuck to the top.
      This is a huge problem since it is my opt-in page!

      I have to say that I like the Layout and the Template based sections. Some of them are really impressive.
      One of the things that I would like to request though is the possibility of being able to dynamically rearrange the layout.
      An example of what I am talking about is take the Agency Section. It's current layout starts with the
      Splash Module then the Portfolio Module then the Service Module and so on and so forth.
      What would be great is if we were able to move these modules around. I.e have the Service Module first
      then maybe the Splash, and then the portfolio.
