4 columns in Magazine Layout Mode

Recommended Posts

Four columns is problematic. The width of the content area is usually too narrow to allow for the space needed by four columns

You can, of course, add boxes to the content area and setting 4 columns If the content area isn't wide enough, those columns will be very narrow.

You cannot modify WordPress to include 4 columns from the loop.

It is possible to use Special Recent Posts plugin to include category based posts into individual boxes.

Depending upon the width of the Content Area in your Layout Editor, yes, three columns of Boxes with posts in them could work. Special Recent Posts can definitely fit with a title, thumbnail, and excerpt in that space.

However, modifying the loop to make three magazine format columns would require considerable programming, not only in PageLines, but also in WordPress. Without a Pro developer to do the coding, the first update of either and your efforts would likely be wiped out.

The safer model is the one suggested. I also heartily recommend the WP Boxer plugin.

I did some boxes linking to posts here in 3 rows. This serves the purpose, but is there a way to import the posts to a box or is manual the only way. thank you.

Have you tried looking in to the Pagelines Anything boxes? These pull posts.

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.

Got it. Documentation doesnt explain how to grab sequential posts. In other words if I clone a box that is 3 wide I end up with to identical sets of 3.

Hi there, you'll need to contact the plugin author for clarification as its a premium plugin, unfortunately we don't get copies to advise you. You can contact him here http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/anything-boxes/ contact button half way down on the right

Figured it out - all I needed was 3 rows max of xx boxes and there was no duplicate content. I wasn't supposed to clone at all.

      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.

      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!
