Header and social icons customizations

Recommended Posts

lasjoh    0



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 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!

      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…

      hi all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      site with calendar :
      7 side with one event from the calendar :
      when I have my site on DMS2 it was working :-(

      Hey team,
      Really simple question: where would I add code to a specific page header? I can see in the settings I can add code to the global header, but can't see how to do it for a single specific page. It's related to facebook pixel tracking
