Hi,

There is no Pinterest social icon for the Branding section. However, you're free to add your own using the code below but you will need to find your own Pinterest Icon and add your URL.

Hello,

I had the same question.

I found a forum a few months back that gave me some PHP code with instructions on how to add the Pinterest Logo, but when I tried it out, it nuked my site :(. Another user had the same problem.

Do they plan on adding the Pinterest branding section in the near future? It is very popular right now, and I think it would be a valued add on for your users.

In the meantime, where do I add this code you suggested?

Thank you.

Hi,

Add the code above to your child theme's functions.php file, or if you're not using a child theme, install the PageLines Customisation plugin and add the code to the plugins functions.php file instead.

I am trying to do this now, but whenever I add that code to my child theme functions file it seems to break. Where in the file should I paste? And can I copy and paste the literal code, just subbing in my image url?

Hi, For some reason the forums is not formatting the code correctly. Therefore, I have updated my post and replaced the code with a link to our pastie service where the code is correctly formatted and so will not break your theme. I apologise I didn't notice this sooner.

Hi,

 

The answer is you can add your own code by hook, use a plugin or add social media as found here:  http://demo.pagelines.me/tools/

Pinterest is not like other social media, in that it seeks to pick up a post thumbnail and excerpt. For most pages, there is none, thus it doesn't normally apply to those pages like a homepage, category page, blog, etc. You'd have to enable it via customization.

 

If you have further questions, please open a new topic.

      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!
