Formatting of content override for panel

Recommended Posts

Hi Nick,

I have been successful at overriding panels (for my contact form and about us panels) but I am running into a problem. I'd like to place boxes into a panel that will allow, when clicked, to open new pages (i.e. blog, press releases, etc). I've read previously that you cannot use regular page lines formatting to accomplish this so I am wondering how to do so?

 

Related: I'd like to add a "get it now" button or call out on the first panel to encourage people to click-through. How is that possible?

 

ETA: I want to specifically overtake the "latest posts" page with this

You can use any content in a page, including markup and shortcodes. So you can either use html markup to build a page of content, or use shortcodes to build the columns and go from there.

There are some example at http://demo.pagelines.com/tools, most specifically the Grid section.

      I just purchased the DMS framework and the Sophistique child theme. I am needing help with setting the content or body font size... the content in a blog post only.
       
      I have the global font size set to 18px and then I have this custom code in the custom css area
       
      body{ font-size:22px !important;}
       
      but this code also changes the font size of the Sophistique contact bar... which I do not want. Anyone know the code to only change the font size in the blog post content area only?
       
      Or vice versa, I could set the global font to 22px and then use custom code for the contact bar font in custom css.
       
      I've tried to use the chrome developer tools to figure this out to no avail. Thanks!

      Folks,   We're adding the finishing touches to an iBlogPro v1.2 site and have come up against a small issue with the Translate Content on Scroll style for Canvas Areas:   [Canvas Area] > Area Styling > Scrolling effects and sizing > Translate Content on Scroll   It creates a pleasingly modern appearance BUT when the browser is windowed and set wider than it is tall, the parallax effect causes the Canvas contents to fade and become obscured by the next object down the page moving up when you start scrolling. Even when the browser window is made taller, the object below begins its transition up the page far too early, leaving the bottom part of the Canvas always obscured and never visible.   I was wondering if this effect had any UI properties or other configuration? I don't mind editing the code that makes it work, but would rather have some pointers from you guys first.   (Incidentally I have no way of knowing precisely what version of DMS I'm using. Is there an 'about' page detailing everything I have installed? I've seen plenty of references to DMS 2 but the only version I can find by looking at the theme entry is iBlogPro v1.2.)

      Hey chaps
       
      I think I've mentioned this before but not made a dedicated topic.
       
      I often save sections out to remember them, which works often and well.
       
      I do find however about 20% of the time I fear for my life when I add a saved section to a page, and upon refresh the section appears blank, and all the linked ones are also then blank and I will need to remake the whole thing.
       
      There seems to be no pattern to this and I have multiple sites hosted across the board, ranging from MAMP, Heart VPS to Fasthosts shared hosting.  This error occurs on all these platforms, which at a guess I would say the database table that stores the data suddenly some how loses it.
       
      I would provide a screen shot/video but I have literally described the error and feel this wouldn't make anything any clearer.
       
      So, to summarise.
       
      1. I create a section, add the elements I want.
      2. Save it as 'section2' lets say.
      3. Add it to 5 more pages, all looks fine.
      4. Create a few page templates.
      5. Could be related - I then often unlink these templates that contain saved sections.
      6. Add a saved section to another page, and refresh.
      7. Viola, 'section2' is blank along with all the instances of 'section2' on my site, and needs to be recreated.
       
      Like I say, about a 20% occurrence, not a one off though.  
       
      Also worth noting when I was using Voyant child theme, after I updated it all my saved sections were wiped also.
       
      Any guidance or workarounds / fixes for this would be very helpful as I'm tending to avoid using these where possible now to avoid losing all my hard work.
       
      Thanks

      Hi!
      I have just started to work with Pageline DMS and am trying to get my site up and running.
      I have started with the iBlog theme as start.
       
      The problem i have is that on my frontpage i have the posts showing like a normal blog...  I want them to show as full content but they show up as excerpt.
       
      I have in wordpress basic settings configured to show the full content of posts. But still it shows only the excerpt..
       
      In DMS i am using the WP content/Loop section to display my posts...  But i cant find any setting there to switch to Full or Excerpt..
       
      I have also checked in site settings...  But i cant find where to configure it...
       
      my site is     http://www.hebk.se
       
      Hope you can assist me with this problem!
       
      Best regards /Mikael

      Hi guys, I'm having a lot of trouble with my content section, trying to figure out if I can put full width content (or close to it) above the sidebars because whenever I add sidebars they take up the whole side and won't sit under anything else unless it is in the header...I have attached a photo of what I am trying to achieve..
