Hi Joel

 

There's a couple of options you could try for this. You could try the method below, editing the icons directly.

 

http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/17510-how-can-i-change-social-media-buttons-on-frameworkdev/

 

Or there are some plugins available which will allow you to insert your own icons like - http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/brandnav-plus/

 

Or you could try using a hook to add your own icons inplace of the standard icons - http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/22659-change-social-website-icons/


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.

Thanks!

 

I purchased Brandnav-plus from Pagelines store. It downloaded to my computer. How do I activate this plugin?

Uploading a Section in .zip format

Use the .zip upload to add a section if:

  • you have downloaded a section from the online PageLines.com store and are adding it to your site
  • or if you have created your own section and want to upload it for use on your site

If creating and adding your own sections, PageLines 2.0 offers templates, training, and a streamlined process. For help creating a new section, follow the instructions in the Developer Docs and watch thePageLines Essential Training videos.

Upload Section .zip

In The PageLines Store:

  1. Select "Sections"
  2. Select "Add Sections"
  3. Select "Upload"
  4. Click "Choose File" or "Browse" to select a .zip file from a local directory
    • Important: The .zip must be named section-nameofyoursection.zipfor the upload to work
  5. Click "Install Now"
  6. The section is now in the "Added" tab
    • If your section is not in the "Added" tab, either there is an error in the section.php file or the .zip file is incorrectly named
  7. Click "Activate" to begin using your new section!

 

 

 

 

Where is the "Added" tab located?

Hi Joel,

 

It may not be labelled "Added" and may be called "Your Added Sections" in Dashboard > PageLines > Store > Sections.  You may be able to add the section directly via the Store, if your account credentials are properly implemented in your PageLines settings.

 

Let us know if this works.  If not, we have other options.

I emailed the developer and she gave me the right info to get it installed. It works now. Thanks!

 

Now, I realize this is not really what I wanted to begin with. I like the way the Pagelines media icons function, I just wanted replace the images. Is there a way to keep the format and simply replace the images?

This was on another post...

 

"Just did this (http://www.brittenweddings.co.uk). The icons you need are in the theme folder then... /pagelines/sections/branding. Download the icons you want to change, save them with the same name then reupload making sure to 'overwrite'. To add different icons (I did Pinterest instead of linkedin) just save your chosen icon as 'linkedin' (in my case) then add the link you need to the 'linkedin' section of the settings panel in pagelines dashboard. That make sense?!"

 

 

Where do I find: theme folder then... /pagelines/sections/branding

Joel,

 

This gets rather complicated.  You'll need to clone the section to a child or Base theme, then, replace the images there, via FTP.

 

Do you have FTP access to your site?

If you have PageLines Base Theme installed and activated, you can FTP to your site then wp-content/themes/pagelines/sections and copy the sections folder to your local computer. 

 

Now, go into the child theme, located at wp-content/pagelines-content/themes and create a folder called sections. Upload the Branding section to this new section.  It will be on your desktop in the sections folder you just downloaded.

 

Don't upload the whole sections folder.

 

When you have the Branding folder located in the right place, you can then replace the images there.

 

That should do it.

      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!

      We have multiple urls pointing to the same base site.  

      When the site is accessed as www.fido.net the icons show fine but when accessed by one of the other aliases (such as www.voip.center) the icons just show as squares
       
      I've previously searched the forums and found other people with the same problems, but I've never seen an answer to this
       
      Attempting to search today and I keep being told I'm doing too many searches and / or there are no matching results ... I've asked through the chat on the site and have been told to ask the question here, so here I am.

      If this has been answered before ... I can't find it ... so please post a link to the answer (not just "go search, you'll find it" - tried that)

      If it hasn't been answered then it would be great to see a fix for this as it is proving troublesome to say the least
      I presume it is some form of xss / hotlinking protection, but I can't see how to disable it / list the "authorised" urls / etc

      I was perusing the master list of Font Awesome icons at http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/icons/ and noticed that there are many new ones that are not available in iBox's dropdown menu.  Will these be added in the next DMS update?
      Thanks.

      Hello:
      I'm using DMS2 which I understand is based on Bootstrap 2. I'm trying to insert a glyphicon based on the bootstrap 2 method here:
      http://getbootstrap.com/2.3.2/base-css.html#icons
      But it doesn't seem to work. My page is here:
      http://testing003.compoundeyedesign.com/
      My code is:
      <a href="/get-quote/"><i class="icon-envelope icon-white"></i> QUOTE</a> Any suggestions, or are the glyphicons just not part of DMS2?
      Thanks!
