Show Posts From Different Categorys On Pages

Recommended Posts

within the pagelines settings "site options" - under "blog and posts" - i can choose a lot of things like meta, thumbnail placement, excerpts, etc. and that'll looks like this

but i'd like to show posts from 3 different categorys on the home page (which is set to the blog page).

i found this great plugin -display-posts-shortcode- which can use shortcodes:

http://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/display-posts-shortcode

that generates a list and looks like this

unfortunately with the plugin i can't use the pagelines settings any more.

my question: do u know a better way with pagelines to solve this problem?

PageLines offers some premium products now that will provide posts on a page from a category... such as CatLoop or Latest Blog Entries.

On the less expensive side, with a bit more work to it, there's Special Recent Posts which lets you display X number of posts on any page or even in a sidebar.

Our premium plugins are always tested to work in the PageLines Framework, even if they're 3rd party developers. We carefully screen them to ensure compatibility.

Glad that helped.

      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!
