Name label - global settings?

Recommended Posts

Dear Nick, I am sorry to trouble you with something I thought I could figure out myself. Where do I set global settings for the Name labels (the way you set Client, Date, Category etc. as a default for everything)? I checked Page Options and could not find it there, and for now I have to add it in manually every time. 

 

Apart from that, the section looks great! Thank you, regards Jan.

That's a really great question! Unfortunately there aren't global defaults for this, as they are each on their own so to speak. Each project is a custom post type which uses a completely different system of saving the options. I will however at least look into the possibility of this in the future.

Dear Nick, no problem. It would be nice but of course isn't such a big deal after all - I'm glad just to know that I can change it easily.

 

While I am practically talking to you: Something that would be very useful for me would be an ability to dynamically sort the projects by categories. I don't know if that is the right language, but I have seen this for galleries: 

 

I have all the projects, and above them four tabs, in my case something like this:

1. All projects

2. Student projects

3. Teacher training projects

4. Production projects

When I press one of them, only the projects in this category are displayed, thus allowing the reader to taxonomise...

 

That is probably a big deal and a fully fledged feature request, although of course you already allow categories to be set. It's just a thought.

 

Thank you for your swift reply. The new forum looks very reassuring! Greetings, Jan.

Ya categories and sorting have been on the books for quite some time for Projects. It's coming, eventually. lol.

Dear Nick, perfect. Patience abounds, thankfully. Do finish the forthcoming epic section first... Yours faithfully, Jan.

      I just bought a Samsung Galaxy Note tablet and noticed that the slides of the Projects are not working. Is this a Projects/Android problem or... ??? I was testing with Firefox.

      Hi
      I just bought Projects and couldn't get it to load in DMS. I used the plwrapper file you link to on your website which did make Projects appear in the Add Sections panel.
      I added a project in the wp-admin dashboard but when I load the site to check it and click on the thumb that appears, nothing happens (apart from the project title sliding up from the bottom of the image).
      I'm developing locally so can't send a link to the site yet.
      Thanks

      Hi Nick, 
       
      I'm putting projects in my Projects section on the Flyte theme and when I enable filtering, I'm not getting pretty tabs, just a links list. Attaching screenshots. Also, when I click on a project, they are almost impossible to see on the screen, but I don't see any settings for this. Do I need to adjust the CSS? Screenshot also attached. Thanks so much :)

      Hi Nick, 
       
      I have Flyte on a GoDaddy hosted site and it renders gorgeously. Everything in the right place. The exact same setup on another site (hosted elsewhere, don't know if it is relevant) has a large empty white space at the top of the Flyte Intro section that I can't get rid of. I'm including screen shots and will grant access if you want. It isn't coming up as padding or border...just not the right size. The second picture is from the site where it is working just fine. Any ideas? Thanks so much!
