Create a blog grid for the blog page

Recommended Posts




How can I create the grid for my blog pages like this: http://themes.goodlayers.com/?theme=megazine


--> when go to the above link, please click on "Lifestyle" on the menu.


As in the Lifestyle blog page, you'll see this theme has a blog grid of 1/3 and also the sidebar.  How can I achieve this in Pagelines framework, is it even possible?

Yes, it's not only possible, but easy as PostPins, our Section that does exactly this.


Once you have PostPins installed and activated, you simply go to Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop and implement PostPins into a template of your choice in the Content Area.  This assures you have the sidebar present.


Create a new static page, using the template of your choice that includes PostPins.  Simply establish the settings for the number of columns, etc via the PageLines Meta Settings and you're set.  


Here's a well-modified version as an added example:   http://www.epicurus.com/food/recipes/our-recipes

Hello Rob,


Thanks for your response and Happy New Year!!!


I just checked out the PostPins section and it's great, however, it is a Pinterest, which doesn't have a fix size for the thumbnails (as it seems).  In your example, http://www.epicurus.com/food/recipes/our-recipes, when you scroll down a bit, you will see the two columns start to be out of order, which is exactly the way Pinterest work, which I don't like. 


Please take a look at another example here: http://crave4anime.com/anime/ 

It's the site from a friend of mine, she uses the 365Life theme from themeforest.  The features pictures she use for each and every post are all in different sizes, the theme automatically resize the featured images to 220x220 px so everything would be in places, nothing rise above, nothing fall below ... I guess the right word would be symmetry (lol). 


Not sure I have explained things clearly, but the Pinterest style doesn't do it for me since I want things to be in a order without the need of resizing every featured image to get them to same size. 


Thanks again.

You could simply use Magazine mode. However, if this isn't for you you could use the PageLines grid with Special Recent posts but that would be a pain to setup in my opinion.


If none of them above suggestions are to your liking, you could try the AnyLoop section available in the store.
