Recommended Posts

I am wanting to add a second logo in my header. Preferably just to the left of the social media Icons, and I would like to have the logo link to an external website.

I am a novice, but can follow directions well. Appreciate the help.

Hi there, you'll need to implement a hook to do this. A hook will add the extra code for the image and link inside the branding section. We have a new hook plugin releasing shortly which will make the process easier, so if you're happy to wait for that to go live it etc.

Otherwise here's a link to another post on the forum which implements a hook into the branding area, you'd need to change the html which has been inserted to reflect your image and link etc. http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/22659-change-social-website-icons/

You can find out more about hooks here http://wpcandy.com/teaches/how-to-use-wordpress-hooks


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.

So, I suppose I should have waited until the plugin release that you mentioned. But, alas, I did not.

I ONLY added the information from the link you provided to the function.php after installing the pagelines customize plugin.

When I clicked update file, it all went down hill. I cannot go to my website or even try to take that code out. Major problems that I'm kind of freaking out over...

I was fortunately able to fix that issue by editing the function.php through FTP. Whew!

I guess the hooks are a little over my skill level and I should wait for the plugin release.

I ended up with a work around, albeit a clunky one, that allows me to do what I wanted. I added a Universal Sidebar widget to the header. It serves the purpose, but the alignment isn't ideal.

Thanks for the help!

If you go into your site via ftp you can find the functions.php inside the child theme and delete the code you entered and re-save. That will set the site back to normal. This is the only problem with editing the functions.php, if anything is slightly out it will throw an error.

Our posts crossed there, glad you got it sorted. If you know css you can align the sidebar better by editing the padding/margins

Any idea on when the hook plugin will be available?

Desperate to add a 'Donate' button above our social media icons on our charity site.

Thanks,

John

There is hook plugin but you'll be able to implement a hook in base theme. If you're not familiar with base theme yet, please see this: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Use_the_Base_Theme


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

      Hi all,
      I was totally excited to find out about 'CSS Hero' (http://www.csshero.org) I read about it in the compatible plugins section of the PL5 docs (http://www.pagelines.com/resources/compatible-plugins) For me it's a great way to more easily customize my sites because I'm not a CSS pro.
      I'm wondering about one thing though… Does anyone know if using this will result in a heavy penalty on page loading speeds? Would love to start using it but only if it doesn't cost too much in terms of speed.
      Thanks, Jan

      Dear fellow forum members,
      It has been months, if not years, since I got the latest DMS version. And I haven't been able to get myself to install it on my blog...
      A few months ago I took on a new job and I now know for sure I will never get to it.
      So, my question: is there anyone out there who is experienced with DMS and would be willing to do this for me.
      In all honesty, I will need help with everything, from rethinking the content (structure), to deciding on illustrations and colours. 
      I am though, willing to pay for this.
      Thanks in advance for your kind answers.

      Trying to adjust the position of the background image on http://churchofwolves.com/. I need the wolf background to move over to the left on mobile versions so it can be seen. Here's the code I'm using and it's not working. I've tried a bunch of different things. Getting frustrated. Any advice?
      @media (max-width: 768px) { .home .site-wrap{ background: url(http://churchofwolves.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Church-of-Wolves-bkgd1.jpg); -webkit-background-size: cover; -moz-background-size: cover; -o-background-size: cover; background-size: cover; background-position: 100% 0%; } }

      Hello!
       
      Wondering how I can have only 4 posts show in the Masonic section?  I've tried going by category but it still adds an additional post.  Any help is greatly appreciated :) Thanks!
