Where are the sections php files?

Recommended Posts


Dear Pagelines team, I am trying to change info in post metabars on the Filtering section post loop page. I can determine the metabar contents in the global settings (Site Options - Blog and Post - Full Width Post Meta/Clip Metabar). But Filtering section apparently overrides the global settings - it only allows Date and Author or nothing in the metabar. I'd like to look at the section's function.php - if it has such - to see if something can be done about this. But I can't find them. I can find php files for the theme and for the plugins, but not for sections. Where should I look? Thank you for your help - and patience. I am still finding my feet in the land of code. Yours faithfully, Jan.

caspersjan, the core code can be found in wp-content>themes>pagelines>sections from there choose your section and you'll see the functions.php file.

However, if you are using the child theme (best option), you'll want to add your changes to the child theme's function.php file to protect against upgrades.

caspersjan, Hi. 

If you FTP into your site, you'll find at wp-content/themes/pagelines/sections, all the core sections.


Download the section folder you want to modify.   Open the folder and edit section.php.


Install the Base Theme via our Store.  Then, navigate via FTP to wp-content/themes/pagelines-template-theme/sections  and upload the folder.


Browse to Dashboard > Appearance > Themes and activate the Base Theme.  You may have to go to Appearance > Menus and select the Theme Location again for your primary and other menus.


That should help you.  There is no functions.php file for each section.  If you want to edit functions.php, you can either use the functions.php in the Base Theme or install and use the functions.php in the PageLines Customize plugin.  You can find more about this here: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/plugins/pagelines-customization/

and http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/customization-methods/

      I need some help!  I am trying to add a Square booking script.  When I add it to a embed section it crashes the page editor and I am unable to save the page version.  I have tried using different browsers with the same result.
       I can add the script on the backend in the word press content area and get it to show and work, but it look terrible.  A page with in a page.  http://www.zoeanastacia.com/booking/.

      I tried to make a simple change on my opt-in page today by reordering two sections.
      Now they won't save and whatever I do, the same 2 section will be stuck to the top.
      This is a huge problem since it is my opt-in page!
      (I'm on the latest WP & PL version)

      I have to say that I like the Layout and the Template based sections. Some of them are really impressive.
      One of the things that I would like to request though is the possibility of being able to dynamically rearrange the layout.
      An example of what I am talking about is take the Agency Section. It's current layout starts with the
      Splash Module then the Portfolio Module then the Service Module and so on and so forth.
      What would be great is if we were able to move these modules around. I.e have the Service Module first
      then maybe the Splash, and then the portfolio.

      Let me know which questions you want me to add to the poll.
