Numerous Customizations

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have been using PlatformPro for some time and I have decided, perhaps impulsively, to get the latest version of the Pagelines Framework.

I am discovering that customizations, which I have been handling mostly in theme files and sometimes the "custom code" field for CSS, are much harder to reproduce.

As you can probably see on my site (currently running PlatformPro) there are little things that I like to change or add, such as the Twitter link under the post info on a site.

Now, with Pagelines 2.3, I can't add some <hr> lines at places where I find them appropriate and I am not 100% sure how to slightly increase my font sizes.

What is the smartest way to recuperate these powers? Are there documents that give a detailed view of what can be done and how? I didn't find the default docs helpful for what I want to do.

Or did I spend 150 dollars for a product that won't let me do any of this anymore?

Hi,

Anything that you have done in PlatformPro, can be achieved in PageLines Framework.

When you say "I am discovering that customizations, which I have been handling mostly in theme files and sometimes the "custom code" field for CSS, are much harder to reproduce."

I'm not quite sure what you're referring to when you mention ""handling mostly in theme files". Does that mean you have edited the core files ?

The <hr> tag does indeed work in PageLines Framework, I have used this myself only the other day.

If you require assistance with customisation, you can visit our Theming Center or contact on our Pros.

For the most part, I used to customize templates and section files in PlatformPro, adding codes for things such as hr, Twitter codes and other additions.

So far, I tried to make changes in sections and includes, but all I got in return was errors. Should I get exclusively into theming to achieve customization now?

You should never edit core files, even in PlatformPro, as these files will be overwritten on theme updates. You can safely copy sections and use them in a child theme as described here. For CSS/PHP customizations, read more here.

      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!
