Feature Nagivation - Names And Thumbs

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am needing to display on the features, both names and thumbnails.

Someone on the support chat told me to post here as to know exactly what PageLines hook to use as this option is not on the dropdown.

So the question is: can I use a hook so that I can have both names and thumbnails? (see screenshot attached)

I think this may be the hook but I am not sure and if it is, I would like to know how to implement this.

Thanks!

Hi Armando,

The hooks list can be found here http://api.pagelines.com/hooks

Looking through the list the hook you'd need to use would be 'pagelines_feature_nav_before', I'll check what the process is with one of the core team and come back to you.


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.

Thanks!

Hi,

I am not sure if this could be even done with a hook and if it can it will be very tricky. I recommend you you contact one of our Pros.

Before I contact the PROs which will in itself create a process for me to figure out who to contact, I'd like to try myself first with the hook of at least a bit more info could be shared here as to how to use a Pagelines hook.

Thanks!

Armando,

I think that the combination of a hook to handle the title and the option to add a thumb would be near impossible for anyone but a professional developer with PageLines experience to handle. Thus I'm going to concur with Danny and send you to http://www.pagelines.com/pros.

Our moderator team are pretty good about fixing most issues, but we cannot code or create solutions such as this as we're not skilled developers.

I don't understand then. I thought that posting on the forum was a way to communicate with the developers of Pagelines (and the community of users, etc). This to me seems like it could be a new feature that could be very useful for all.

For a better example of what I am trying to accomplish you can take a look at: http://www.charitywater.org/

Thanks!

Hi Armando

The forum is a great way to communicate with other users and for any topics/issues the developers need to be aware or can help with, we liaise the information through to them and come back to with their responses. If there is a possibility that we can offer a simple fix to a users problem or come up with a suitable workaround then we do. Unfortunately for more complex issues which require the creation of a custom section or a large amount of customization outside the scope of product support, then we would have to refer you to a Pagelines Pro, who would be able to create the section/code for you.

Unfortunately on checking with the core team we've been told that it's not possible to use a hook to create the type of effect you're looking to achieve.

We will log the idea as a suggestion for a future product as it would be a nice item to add to the store and no doubt would be used by a majority of people.

If you want to look into hooks further for reference, I've attached some links below.

Hi James,

Thanks for the response and the clarification.

I created a PL child theme and then copied the Features section unto the sections folder, then found the code I was needing to modify, that looks like it's going to do the work for the time being.

Yet, I am trying to remember (from watching the PL dev videos) if there is a way to keep as much of the original code (in this case) of features.php so that when there is a new version of pagelines and there were changes it is not hard for me to update those changes.

I understand that my previous comments are more likely for the PROs, etc. But I thought of mentioning this since I think I will acomplish what I was intending to do.

Thanks!

      http://731.34b.myftpupload.com/ this website is using the NavPro navigation in Platform 5. It has a lot of menu items, so it breaks to two lines when the window is sized down. What is the media query to make the navigation either a) switch to "mobile mode" at a higher width, or b ) expand the nav into two lines. Thanks

      Hi Everyone,
      I am trying to get a single navigation item to center. I am using a scroll menu in the navigation component of Impulse. I would like to have the item in the center of the page but it defaults right. I tried setting the item to center a few different ways and nothing is working. I added {
        display: inline-block;
        position: relative;
        text-align: center;
      }
      but that didn't work...any help would be appreciated. Site is at http://vetpaw.org/new
       
      Thanks!

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      I'm still "piercing the veil" of platform 5, with page navigation the current subject of interest. I worked with a few plugins (the most useful being Next Page Not Next Post) but I wanted to take a step back and start with an example - and see if I could get a bit of help "inside the beltway". 
      What I'm looking to do is substantially similar to the pagelines docs pages - see my annotated screenshots attached. At the top of a "child" page I want a link back to the "parent" page - and at the bottom of that "child" page I want to place a similar link to the "grandchild" page. At the bottom of each grandchild page I want there to be navigation "buttons" to sibling pages in the hierarchy. 
      "Next Page Not Next Post" handles what I'm expecting for "sibling" navigation, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting over the logistical hump of applying that functionality to my page "Template C" instance only. And per the attached examples, while researching how to solve this problem I see on the Pagelines site *itself* that the navigation elements are in place - and I especially like the oval button formatting of the sibling page navigation.
      So - really, my question is two-part:
      Are there plugins/code snippets/tutorials/threads here that show how Pagelines achieved their page hierarchy nagivation, and  Is there a tutorial (or advice from generous contributors here) on how to use the PHP templates to override the content portion of the page to add the navigation elements? Thanks in advance!

      What is the equivalent to DMS2's PostNav section in PL5?  I'm looking for PREVIOUS/NEXT buttons that show the associated post names for the previous and next posts.
      Thanks,
      J.D.
