I am working on a site that uses post categories to organize a large collection of cocktail recipes (such as 'Fall Cocktails', 'Winter Cocktails', 'Spring Cocktails', and 'Summer Cocktails'). I am trying to style the category pages so that a user will land on the Fall page and see the fall posts in a two-column setup. The Pagelines Content section has no real post display options to speak of so I am trying to work within the Loops section, which does produce the overall visual effect that we are hoping for. However, it means that I have to create a Loops section for every single category page and tell it to show the posts for that specific category (Fall posts on the Fall Category page, Spring posts on the Spring page, etc). We actually have about 25 cocktail categories so creating unique pages for each category isn't going to be very time effective for us - especially if we want to change a setting later and have to go to each page to do that.
So, my question is whether or not there is a way to control general category pages or if there are any other good post loop options that you recommend. This used to be much easier in the past versions of Pagelines and DMS so I just want to make sure I am not missing something within this new system.
Thanks so much for the help!
I just upgraded to the platform 5 and all my post lop content in static pages is not visible on the site, although it is selected in the page setup.
Hi there, the Filter By option within the Masonic section isn't working when a custom post type and custom category is selected. If you swap to normal posts and categories then it works but sadly not with custom post types and custom categories.
All posts are shown but when you click on the categories all posts disappear even though posts do have these categories. When you click All all the posts come back. I've tried this on two different websites with the same result.
Many thanks in advance.
I am trying to have my post show up on more than the static page that is defined in >settings>reading.
I would very much like the post to able to be displayed on 2 other pages "like a second and third recent posts that is displayed like a blog.
Any help would be great.
I am somewhat familiar with how coding works but not advanced enough to write the code I think I need for this.
is there an easier way.
I am using 'Type' plug-in to create custom post types.
However, when I go into Flipper (and some other DMS plug-ins) I don't see the custom post types I create in the Post Types drop-down; only Pages, Posts and Testimonials.
I assume Flipper supports custom post types, right?
If so, what settings should I look at to make it so all my custom post types appear in Flipper's drop-down selector for post types.
