How do I edit a static page with text?

4 posts in this topic

Hello, I'm new to PageLines and I'm having trouble adding text to a static page. I've created a static page and applied a template which has no Sections in the page template.


Normally when using WordPress (without PageLines) I just go to Pages and edit the Page by adding some text. With PageLines installed, when I click publish/update the page does not display anything.


Please advise, thanks!

In order to display content on your page, PageLines needs to sections to be active, these sections are active by default. So if you're experiencing this issue, you have most likely disabled these sections on your template.


Go to Wordpress Admin Dashboard > PageLines > Drag and Drop, now click on "Page Templates" (so it highlights blue) and then select the template that your page(s) are using. Make sure that the "Content Section" is active.


Now click on "Content Area" (next to "Page Template", so that highlights blue), then make sure that the "PostLoop section" is active.


Make sure that both sections area active on your template areas, if they aren't your content will not be visible.


If these sections are active on your templates, then you have most likely disabled these sections on your pages PageLines Meta Settings, go to Wordpress Admin Dashboard > Pages and select your page. Now scroll down to the PageLines Meta Settings > Page Setup and make sure that these sections or not hidden (checked).

Hi Danny, I followed your instructions and that appears to fix it. I can now add text to the Page and I can see that text reflected on the live site. I will continue to play around with it if I have any more questions I will update this post. Thanks allot for your help!

      I need to give a Client the ability to add URLs using WP's Interface. She is not a Tech person but could handle this and would leave other settings alone. The Links Page on her site will be a static page with only a Content Area, no sidebars. I have searched and browsed but can't locate either code or plugin or whatever that will allow me to do this. Please point me in the right direction. I would also be interested in any PC/MAC/Web/Phone apps that would give a client the ability to write posts (with or without images), and add links so they could avoid the WP Interface altogether. Thank You!

    • Newb Help - Static Vs Blog Main Page?
      By riverbears
      I set up my site two years ago on Station - decided I wanted to add a forum and it eventually led me to loading up PageLines...which I really like.

      Going through the tutorial, talking about templates, I realized that my site (which is mostly a blog, some content pages and sidebar gizmos) doesn't have a static home page - my main page is just my latest blog entries. No defined Home Page and no defined Blog Page.

      It's worked well enough so far, but how do I set up a template for it in PageLines? And if I do set up a static home page at this point, how do I tell it to show my blog entries and set it up as the main page visitors reach when they hit my site? Is this in PageLines or in WordPress?

      Sorry this is so basic...
