Dear friends, I'm quite new to Wordpress and I'm trying to manage Platform theme in order to publish a new travel website (www.travelog.it)

I can't succeed on publish "page excerpts" in Homepage. Post excerpts they do work, but I didn't find any solution to provide Page ones (even adding proper code on functions.php)
Can you please help me on solve this little problem?
Thank you in advance,

Adriano

Hi Adriano,

 

I apologise but I am not quite sure what you're referring to, are you saying you want to have excerpts on pages ?

Dear Danny, sorry for my bad english :)

 

I'd like to automatically publish in homepage excerpts from Pages in the same way as it happens for Post excerpts.

 

I add a one line code on functions.php -> I succeeded on showing "excerpts" window in the dashboard -> I add a few plugins (Page Excerpt et similia) but with no results

Pages do not support excerpt out of the box in Wordpress. Therefore you will most likely need to use a plugin, the best course of action would be to search the Wordpress plugin repository. As this is related to Wordpress and not PageLines.

      Hi,
      I am confused about the products your are offering.
      What is DMS, Platform and Pagelines!?

      I'm trying to find a way to display the full content of my posts on my posts page rather than the post excerpt. 
      I've tried using various plugins to create a custom excerpt with no success, so I'm guessing I'll need to make the change to the theme files. That being said I'm not able to find where I would make that change. In the past I've been able to replace <?php the_excerpt(); ?> with <?php the_content(); ?>, but I'm unable to locate this in the framework theme? Am I missing something here?

      Does anyone know what features have been included in the Foundation theme? Such as building blocks or the Motion UI?

      I'm still "piercing the veil" of platform 5, with page navigation the current subject of interest. I worked with a few plugins (the most useful being Next Page Not Next Post) but I wanted to take a step back and start with an example - and see if I could get a bit of help "inside the beltway". 
      What I'm looking to do is substantially similar to the pagelines docs pages - see my annotated screenshots attached. At the top of a "child" page I want a link back to the "parent" page - and at the bottom of that "child" page I want to place a similar link to the "grandchild" page. At the bottom of each grandchild page I want there to be navigation "buttons" to sibling pages in the hierarchy. 
      "Next Page Not Next Post" handles what I'm expecting for "sibling" navigation, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting over the logistical hump of applying that functionality to my page "Template C" instance only. And per the attached examples, while researching how to solve this problem I see on the Pagelines site *itself* that the navigation elements are in place - and I especially like the oval button formatting of the sibling page navigation.
      So - really, my question is two-part:
      Are there plugins/code snippets/tutorials/threads here that show how Pagelines achieved their page hierarchy nagivation, and  Is there a tutorial (or advice from generous contributors here) on how to use the PHP templates to override the content portion of the page to add the navigation elements? Thanks in advance!

      So I just did a fresh install of Platform 5 & the included Framework on a new site and this is what came up on the site:
      "Fatal error: Call to undefined function pl_edit_head() in /home1/jacobtip/public_html/mycoastalwellness.com/wp-content/themes/pl-framework/header.php on line 1"
      Any ideas on how to fix this?
