Two pre-sales questions about Pockets

Recommended Posts

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?

Ya gallery really can't be moved but I could turn this into a shortcode that you can move wherever inside the post. The captions should do line breaks just fine as it's just using Wordpress captions.

So I can't change the order: excerpt, content, gallery...

 

I'm not sure I understand the shortcodes. If I wanted a layout just like the Wide Layout, with that nice header, then the gallery and then the rest, using the shortcodes, would I then have to add a regular WP pages and then add the shortcodes? I can't see a shortcode for the content and extra fields, and I'm sure the header would not be visible if not within the pockets template.

 

By the way, always when visiting this page: http://pockets.nichola.us/shortcodes/

the fan inside my pc begins to blow heavily, like if there's loop in a script on that page.

"So I can't change the order: excerpt, content, gallery..."

Right you can't change the order with this currently.

 

 

"If I wanted a layout just like the Wide Layout, with that nice header, then the gallery and then the rest, using the shortcodes, would I then have to add a regular WP pages and then add the shortcodes? can't see a shortcode for the content and extra fields, and I'm sure the header would not be visible if not within the pockets template."

The layout is chosen by picking a layout. Once you create a Wordpress gallery for that post, the gallery shows. If you don't the gallery doesn't show. The text is taken using the_content(). In a single post, there's a area you can enter anything into, like shortcodes. The header image, is the featured image. Everything is using Wordpress.

Hello Nick,

 

Thanks for the explanation. Unfortunately my client really wants those images above the text, so for now I'll have to search for another solution.

And by the way, when visiting that page with the shortcodes, and only that page, my cpu really becomes very very active ;)

      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!

      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.

      Hi,
       
      I'm having an issue on mobile phones and tablets where the isotope style boxes that represent each pocket in archive view are overlapping with eachother and the gutter/spacing between each is not even. I'm not sure what's causing the issue, wondering if you could help.
       
      You can see the issue here:
