Platform Pro + teachpress or bibtex

Recommended Posts

I have installed teachpress at our non-profit site wccaucus.org

I cannot get the publications to list conventionally using the teachpress shortcodes.

Does anyone have experience of using teachpress &/or bibtex post entries with Platform Pro who can mentor me past my display problem?

The page I have having trouble with is

http://wccaucus.org/apa-annual-meeting/staging-bibtex-scheduled-talks/

It is centered (do not want) and not displaying all fields that are entered. I'd like more control, also, about the order of [tplist] by date and then name.

Thank you in advance. Chris Ann Matteo

Teachpress has CSS styling that's causing the text to be centered. You can overwrite this CSS by adding your own CSS code.

You’ll need to use Custom CSS (in Site Options > Custom Code > Custom CSS). CSS that changes the style of a page element consists of two parts: the selector and the attribute.

Selector: Used to select the page element you want to change (in this case, the page elements you want to change are your teachpress post).

Attribute: Property that determines what kind of change you want (you’re changing the text formatting, so the attributes you want to use are text-align, font-size, etc.).

To find the selector for the teachpress post, you'll need to use Firebug (or Chrome Development tools). To learn how to use Firebug for CSS customizations, please read and follow these instructions: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS.

For help with the formatting attributes, please see these instructions: http://w3schools.com/css/css_text.asp

Sorry there seems to be a full stop on the end of the previous link


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.

      Hello:
      I have several sites on Host Gator that have been using Platform Pro. This template was great for me until recently, when after a Word Press update, all the sites just have the page heading and all the rest of the content doesn't display.
      Thanks for your help.

      I am unable to log into the Wordpress dashboard for my website. When I try, I get a page of lines saying:
      Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /home/hundreds/hundredsofhundreds.com/wp-content/themes/platformpro/core/library/class.layout.php on line 159 (and line 162, etc)
      I have not posted to my wordpress site in a while, but keep it reasonably updated and haven't made any changes or deleted any important files that I am aware of. Any help much appreciated!

      Hi to those who care to read...just upgraded from the old platform pro to the new DMS, and unfortunately I haven't found the transition that exciting...iboxes that can't link, very limited image options, can't link the boxes/content; Media boxes that won't link, poor customization options, a selection of very limited sections has led me to purchase 3rd party extensions to bring the site to some kind of life...
      I was expecting an improvement in features from platform pro, not a downgrade. Sure construction is kinda a little easier (once you get your head around it) but being able to build a functional site straight out of the box is almost a waste of time... Perhaps I'm just missing something here but I would love to hear what else you guys think about DMS...?

      Hello everyone! 
       
      I'm having an issue with my website (here's the link...screenshot also attached). If you take a look you'll see that the top navigation (the item titled 'Advisory') has one item listed below it ('Case Studies'). That dropdown has additional pages under it, so it's Advisory --> Case Studies --> list of items. The problem is there's a huge vertical gap between the first dropdown option and submenu options. I hope I'm making sense...
       
      Can you please help me find the CSS selector to align the sub-drop down menu?
