Anything Boxes
Include sub-categories by choosing parent

3 posts in this topic

Maybe it's just me, but I kind off expected Anything Boxes to include all sub-categories when I choose a parent category.

 

Why doesn't it? Can I make it do that? Hooking off every sub-category of my News category is cumbersome, especially when I add new sub-categories quite often.

Hey Attac,

 

I thought it would be best to be explicit with categories to allow for deeper level control. You might be better off using the "exclude" option for your category checkboxes if it saves you time and is more consistent.

I came to the forum looking for this exact thing. It'd be ideal to have an option to include children because the parent category is a bit of a control -- no telling what the child categories will be. Having children is really needed for my usage. I'd love to see an update to add an option to include children or not. That's my vote. :-)

      Hi,
       
      I know Pagelines is not the developer of Anything Boxes but since you operate the store I wanted to ask the following question.
       
      Anything Boxes isn't officially updated for DMS yet but shows up in the store on one site I'm buidling: http://www.lovo.nu (http://cl.ly/image/2u0I1i3q1v1H). In another site (http://www.janpeeters.nl) that's on the same Pro version of DMS, Anything Boxes isn't visible. I'm hoping someone can shed a light on this erratic behaviour. I'd love to use Anything Boxes (that I bought) on both sites. 
      I read somewhere on the forum about Wordpress SEO being a problem for disappearing sections, but deactivated that didn't bring it back on my site.
       
      Thanks, Jan

      Hi,
       
      Yesterday I recreated my website in DMS (from Framework 2) This worked quite smooth (half a days work with base child theme). There were some usability 'problems' that I will report later on.
       
      I used the section Anything-Boxes which I bought a while ago for Framework. It showed up in my DMS sections a few days ago so I could recreate my site. But last night it disappeared again. From my sections and from the store. So hopefully someone knows how to get it back. I'm using Flipper in the meantime, but the multirow anything-boxes works better for me.
       
      Thanks, Jan

      Is it possible to state an offset for query_posts in "Anything Boxes"?
      I need to show the latest post on the top in a Feature and the rest of the posts in Anything Boxes. Could you please show me how I can do that, or if it is possible could you you add this in the setting?

      Hi Adam,   Here our conversation by e-mail about allowing tags for the excerpt. I'll post it again here as a feature request since I did not see it being implemented.   Kind regards,   Willem

      <img src="http://oudisnieuw.net.websrv.makeweb.nl/images/cafestoel-volendam-225x300.jpg" alt="Cafestoelen" style="max-width: 100%"> Hi Adam, in the above code you see that in your coding the image gets the ALT tag from the pagetitle. However, it is possible to give an alt text with every image in WP. 
      My preference would be that the alt tag is from the image, or that we can manage this inside your plugin.
       
      Can you change this (important for SEO).
       
      Kind regards,
       
      Willem
