A second Blog roll, Archive or News page

Recommended Posts




This might be so elementary and basic WordPress knowledge that I really should be ashamed to ask, but still… :)


I use the front page for the blog roll and will only allow a small number of blog-posts on the front page. To get hold of older posts I'd like to have some kind of archive list page or such. Basically a page that lists all previous blogposts (regardless of category or age) in the manner I choose to present them. In the top menu I'd like to have a link to this archive view/archive page called News (even if it's old news). 


In the Pagelines Drag & Drop settings, you're able to control the layout of the archive template, but this is of course a dynamically rendered page type which can't be applied to a page. My questions are these:


1. When do the settings for Archive (in Drag & Drop and in Page Options) apply, i.e. at what pages? I can't find a single page that uses the archive page template. Category, Author, Blog, Search, Tag and 404 I can find, but no page using the Archive template.


2. How would you solve the News-page link in the top menu as described above?

1. The Archive Page Options control your archive pages such as posts from a specific month etc.. If you wish to create a page and display all your posts, you will need to use a plugin. I recommend you search on the Wordpress Plugin Repository.




2. You will need to create a Wordpress Custom Menu, more information can be found here - http://support.pagelines.me/docs/miscellaneous/using-menus/

      How can I save a page in one Platform 5 site for upload to a different site?
      Have a site in which there are a couple extensive extensive Portfolio pages made with Popthumbs, buttons and text sections. Clients are going their separate ways and need to split site into 2 different sites. I'd hate to have to recreate these pages. There MUST be a simple way to download a page and it's content from one site and upload it to a new site - not recreate the whole site, just selected (popthumbs) pages. Did asearch in forum for this and got zero results. Investigated the save/load templates extension but don't see how that can work for this case.
      Thanks for advise.

      This may qualify as a dumb question: However.
      I am trying to move 4 content pages which are now linked to a Parent Page (See site, Collaberate Tab)
      I would like to move these pages in so that users will be able to link to them from Boxes section on Collaberate Tab itself, not from drop down.
      No matter what I do everytime I create a new page it shows in NavBar. If I assign it a "Parent" then it shows in NavBar under the parent. I understand all this. What I do not understand is how to create a page of content (or more) which are linked from content inside a page and not in drop down.
      I have scanned and read all the material I can find and nothing seems to tell me how to create a page, archive it &/or save it and then simply link to it once done from a content page.
      Is there not a simple way to do this?
      In Short: Create new page of content, and it links from a page of my menu bar via hyper link but doesn't show up in NavBar?
