Pockets Archive only pulls posts

Hi Nick,

 

Huge fan I purchase everything you put out..

 

I'm trying to use pockets but I cannot get the archive to pull the pockets. It only seems to pull posts.

 

I've followed the instructions and started the project a few times. The first attempt I realized I named the pockets "projects" and I also had your projects plugin activated.

I assumed I crossed too many wires..I deleted everything reinstalled pockets and it still didn't work

 

Here is the archive example:

 

Here is an example of the shortcode being used to pull the pockets:

Here is a single pocket on that site: 

 

 

You can see the categories for the pockets in the archive view but it only pulls posts into the archive.

 

I tried a fresh install twice and I'm still getting the same results.

This is my most recent attempt. I haven't done much of anything with the rest of the site to eliminate issues. I created 3 pockets each with their own category. I made sure that pockets are in the pocket archive as well as the single pocket sections in the drag and drop section..

 

Here is a single pocket: 

 

 

I've read all the forums and tried everything I could think of any ideas why I can't get this puppy to work? 

 

Side note: I did insert the galleries into the pockets but I did it on purpose. I disabled my css changes but I altered the design a bit to the customers specs.. Just so you didn't think I wasn't following your instructions. 

 

Thanks! 

Nick

The archive page is created automatically based on whatever slug you choose.

Hi Nick,

 

Thanks for your reply. 

 

I realize the archive is automatically created and on all occasions the page was created but it's not showing the pockets i created. It's only returning generic "posts" I have about 12 "pockets" created that I was hoping the archive page would show. 

 

If I create a page and use the shortcode I can get the "pockets" to display but the filtering doesn't work:  but there's no filtering.

 

For example, this is one single pocket on that site and it's category is "medical": 

 

I hope I'm explaining myself well.

 

Thanks,

Nick

I have the same problem. The slug is /Författare (Authors) but now it only is showing my blog posts.

Perhaps I missunderstood. But since I did the upgrade - I can't get the Authors - instead I get previous blog posts -

Hi, me again. I listed the wrong slug above /forfattare is the right one.

@anderskrus if you need assistance please start your own thread.

 

@fidanza do you still need assistance with this? The filtering will only show on the archive, and using the shortcode is not going to show the filtering. You still need to have the section on the page within drag/drop if your seeing normal posts this is because the section just isn't there. If it's still not working for you show me screenshots of your drag/drop, and please provide a link to your archive, and a single pocket.

I never did get it to work as I anticipated but I was able to get the site to function using some of the aspects of Pockets.

OK I went through the code and fixed what was happening. My apologies. Pockets now at 1.0.5

      Hey there!
       
      Getting a weird intermittent error, where about a couple of times a week the pockets archive page of a site we built for a client will not resolve and we get a 404.
       
      I can get it to work by going into the page options dashboard and changing and then unchanging the slugs, and when I save the settings it usually goes away. Makes me think that maybe there something weird going on with url rewriting?
       
      It's very weird. Its fine now as I usually get a few frantic calls from the client and then have to fix, but would appreciate any info or help. Thanks!

      Hello Nick,
       
      I want to purchase pockets, but have two for me rather important questions about the functions.
       
      A customer likes the pockets for his site, but wants the images/gallery not to be at the bottom of the page but in first place or perhaps right behind the excerpt. Is that possible? It should be a presentation of products.
       
      Second, on the right of the images in the gallery there first is the title and underneath soms descriptive text. According to the video, that text is inserted into the caption field of the image, but does that allow line breaks? My customer should be able to add a short description, then hit enter for a new line or white line, and than add some more text. Or is the description field used of the caption field is empy?

      Hey Nick, I just wanted to check in on registering multiple post-types. Any changes afoot for Pockets/V3?

      Dear Nick, I finally got my teeth into Pockets, having had it installed for a few months now. It looks great. And the documentation is excellent.  I could not find any mention of global settings for Pocket labels though. Is that not possible? I am trying to set up a system whereby the Pockets can be populated with content sent in by users through a form (I saw you mention Gravity in other sections, I use Formidable but I am sure they work more or less in the same way). For this, the different labels would have to be custom fields with specific names. But even if I create all the Pockets manually, it would seen useful to have a global setting for the labels, if they are to be always the same. Does this make any sense? If you think there is a way to work it out, let me know or even point me in the right direction. Thanking you, greetings and good luck. Yours faithfully, Jan.

      Hi!
       
      Since I uppgraded Pockets my "pockets" doesn't come up in the self generating archive mode. Instead it pulls previous blog posts. 
      My slug is /forfattare - authors.
       
      http://litetforlag.se/forfattare
       
      I really love this product - haven't seen anything look so good. And the archive mode is nicer then the shortcodes when I only have sex authors to show. 
       
      I really do hope that this is a bug that can be fixed. And I also keep my fingers crossed that it will be possible to have several pockets/slugs going at the same time.
