Header and social icons customizations

Recommended Posts




I have a question. My client wants to adjust the header in a certain way. A logo, displayed on the left (standard) and in the right top she wants a calleble telephone number and email (a callto: and mailto: link).

She also needs to use a different social icon as the ones supplied with pagelines. Now of course it's possible to replace i.e. the Google+ icon with the icon of the needed platform and fill in the correct address in the site administrator, but what I'm looking for is a way to add additional social icons/links to the ones provided.


Can anyone tell me how I should accomplish these two things? See attached bitmap

1st Thing: You can use this plugin to implement this content on the top right corner - http://www.pagelines.com/store/plugins/hooker/


2nd Thing: You can edit the branding section file in the base theme. For further instructions: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Use_the_Base_Theme#Customize_Your_Site_Using_the_Base_Theme

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Thanks. One question: which hook do I have to use for the top right corner in the heading?

Hi John, there's a couple in the header you could use. Something like pagelines_head_last etc. A full list of the hooks can be found here -http://api.pagelines.com/hooks


If you install the action map plugin - http://www.pagelines.com/store/plugins/pagelines-action-map/ this will show you exactly which hookers are live on the page and where they are, so this will help you narrow down which one to choose.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      Hi team,
      checking my site today, i'm surprised to see my MegaNav all in bottom of the pages, while it's in header.
      After getting to change it in couple of pages onto Template part (too time consuming !), i'm desperate and ask you for help :-)
      Thank you in advance !

      I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      I'm taking a site out of development and putting it online.  I need a little help with the Framework 5 interface and icon links because they are not converting to the new URL.  The site is in a sub-folder and I followed the WordPress docs, like I usually do, about Giving Wordpress Its Own Directory . i.e.
      In Settings>General>Site Address changed it to the final URL Copied the index.php and .htaccess files to the root folder Edited the index.php to point to the subfolder and saved the file Now the site is up and running and I can still edit the theme in the Dashboard but the Framework 5 front end interface does not load on each page at the top.  In addition, the Social Media icons, slider icons, etc... don't show up.  However, they are linking to their destinations correctly.  I feel like I can missing a final step.  Can anyone suggest a resource or solution?
      The site is:  http://www.mnkhan.com/
      Thanks in advance!
