So im currently working on a site that has alot of member profiles.  I have been trying to find the easiest / cleanest way to make this look good and function well.  This is the site I found that i really think works well.  http://www.portlandbuylocal.org/directory/

 

 

I know they are just using posts and categories.  Does pagelines already have a section for this?  Or any feedback on the best route to make all the jive together?  Some keep points i like.

 

-Top Browse filter section

-Integrated map on the side that will expand and show all the filtered maps you are currently look at.

- Browse by tags sidebar widget

- recently viewed members on on a sidebar widget once you click on one of the members.

 

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Jarrod

Hi Jarrod,

 

Even though PageLines has a map shortcode, I don't believe that it expands or that it changes dynamically based on the content viewed.. For that, you'd need a map plugin.  There are many out there, both free and premium.  I can't say which are better.

 

I'm not aware of any browse filters in PageLines because we don't actually manage your content, only how it appears on your site.  You'd need a plugin here too.

 

WordPress has a Tags widget built into Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets that can be styled, but there are a variety of tag plugins.  Since most people don't use tags anymore, this is a somewhat dated technology, though I can see its use.

 

BuddyPress is a membership system for WP, and there are plugins for that which will show recent members or members online.  There are plugins for WP that show recent or members online.  I believe the best membership software is s2Members.

      Hello,
      We are working on a 2 languages site (https://liguecardioliga.be) with wpml, and lately the call of a category in the loops section (and all the sections requiring a category to select posts) doesn't work in the translated language. It worked well until recently so I wonder if it's because of a recent update (wordpress, wpml, pagelines, a plugin?). Anyone has the same problem? a solution?
      TIA

      Hi,
      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      https://staging4.talltreemusicfestival.com/2017/grand-analog/
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.

      I've created a new post category "Success stories" with Custom Post type UI. (in order to have a different layout for a different post category - blog post one layout, success stories another layout).
      New category "success stories" are "detached" from all the other posts, so they have a different layout, but the problem is that all of the success stories are also having the same exact content.
      So whenever I edit content (e.g. change body text) on one of success story posts, it also changes the content (body text) for all other Success story category posts. 
       
      Question: Is there a way to retain this separate category with it's own layout, and have a different content for each individual post? I'm using Pagelins templates. 
       Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
      Is is possible to have different layouts for different Post categories? We have Blog posts, News posts and Case studies that all are posts, but is it possible to differentiate their layouts?
      So far when I change a post layout it affects all Post type pages. Could it be done somehow with creating a separate template? 
      Examples below

      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?
