Triggering Poppy from Hero, Masthead, or Box Link Fields

Recommended Posts


Is there a way to trigger the Poppy plugin from the link field of the hero or masthead unit? I tried a couple of formats and none seemed to work. Since this is a contact plugin I would think triggering it from the typical call to action units would be expected and/or appreciated.

Masthead and Hero only allow straight text, not HTML, so they won't be able to display coded components. Shortcode does work in Boxes. So I'm unsure why it's not working unless you haven't activated the plugin.


You can always use another sidebar (Universal or Full Width, depending on where it is used) and create your own layout. For example, the Grid System might be suitable in a sidebar/text widget with the shortcode used in one of the grid elements.

Thanks for the response. I'm using a work around of placing the shortcode below in the "Enter Masthead Meta Text":


[poppy type="button" class="btn-success" size="large"] Button Text [/poppy]


That is working okay for now. I was just wondering about placing the shortcode in the actual "Enter the link destination" within the masthead options. Sounds like that isn't possible at this point. Thanks for the suggestion on the grid. I have used it a few places and will probably start to do so more as I hit limitations with core options.


Thanks again.

      Good morning,
      I have set up my homepage using the Elements sections, a Masthead at the top and then a selection of Heroes lower down.
      I only just realised that the Heroes set a H1, as does the Masthead.
      Is there an easy way I can change the Heroes to an H2/H3 etc so as to improve the structure of my headers, whilst keeping the Masthead as H1?
      I really don't know much at all about CSS, which is why I use Pagelines because it's just so easy to create good looking pages without too much confusion.

      The parallax and hero sections are jumping to the top of the template in PL5 See  here http://screencast.com/t/TLajih8MEM6
      No matter what I do, clear browser cache, whatever. The Parallax with the embeddded Hero section will ot stay on the bottom of the page above the footer.
      Help, please. This started happening at the worst possible time, when I was in a client meeting walking here through the site that is already LATE.

      Following the latest updates I now have an issue with the hero section on mobile. The content is extremely narrow. All looks ok on desktop....

      I just spotted the standalone Heroes section as opposed to the Elements>Hero section and I much prefer this layout with the larger text directly under the heading but again on mobile (iPhone) it screws the layout similar to the contact form 7 page (http://www.johnhibbs.me/contact/).
