Hello, thanks in advance for any help.

 

How to put clips to follow each other in homepage without any space (as example: "pinterest" style)?

 

Thanks!

Hi Rob, no I didn't.Thanks for writing me about it. I've bought anyloop but it doesn't suit for what I'm looking for... Basically I just require that current clips act in a "pinterest" style, having first post as a blog (thumb-title-excerpts) and following clips in "pinterest" style :) thanks

 

Hi,

 

Have you tried our Post Pins section? http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/pagelines-postpins/

 

It's rather similar to Pinterest.

Not nearly as easily.

 

You can use the Grid System, then implement a plugin like Special Recent Posts or our AnyLoop in the grids.  SRP lets you offset each shortcode by 1 more than the last, so you'll have a rotating number of posts, but this is going to require considerable work.  PostPins is the best solution.

Thanks Rob. Does PostPins allow to have first post on homepage as a normal "blog" post (thumb-title-excerpts) and then other clips in "pinterest" style?

Hi there,

 

Unfortunately not, the postloop can be used in conjunction with the postpins section to create that effect. Using the postloop to show the first post in large (set display one post only in settings>reading), then having the postpins section display below. However, you'd need to find a way to hide/remove the first post from the postpins section, otherwise it will duplicate the above. There might be a way to use the css pseudo first child class to do this, but it would be complicated.


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.

I think the easiest option would be to use the standard post pins section as it comes, that would display all posts in the grid a bit like a pinterest style layout.

Yes, i've done it, problem is those spaces between end of one clip and following other

You can remove the spaces, but you'll need to use css to adjust the margins/padding for each post so they're closer together. 

 

If you've not used css before, check out http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/custom-css/ which will give you an overview and the tools we advise using for making css changes.
