Difference between section global and section local

Recommended Posts

I noticed that there is a "section options global" and "section options local".  I thought I would be able to set the header locally for each different template but I'm not able to do this.

 

 

I didn't see any explanation for this in the docs.pagelines.com section.  

 

If the sections options global/section options local don't allow for page/template specific headers, is there any negative to not having a header and I would simply use different media boxes/columns without a header?

Hi,

 

I'm under the impression that in creating a page, you can apply sections locally (including the header) to that specific page.

 

Have you tried that method?

Theoretically, you are saying that the changes made to one page shouldn't necessarily appear on another.  However, I would like a different image on one header page than another.  As you can see at these two different pages, the section remains the same except on the front page there is no media image.  What I want is media box that fills the entire section on the home page and then one that has components on all the other pages.

Headers are  normally global, so you'll have to use a Content Box or some sidebar to manage this locally.

It appears that in order to have different header images on each page that the best thing to do is leave the header section blank and just add differing sections to the content portion of the template. Is there any disadvantage for not having a header?

Well, there are some disadvantages, some related to search engine optimization.  However, you're certainly free to do as you described.

 

There may be better ways, and since we are experimenting with this new product as you are, we may discover an easier way. I would urge you to go to Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop, and look at the options you have Available there to add to the Header.  There are quite a few.  Theoretically, you could add a Widgetizer section to the header, then using something like Widget Logic, change the content of a text widget on a per page, category, or even post basis as desired.  It's lots of extra work, but clearly, your customization is well outside the box.

There is no drag and drop section in Dashboard.

You're looking in the wrong place.

 

Go to your dashboard, where you land once you login as admin.  You'll then see PageLines on the left side.  Click there.  You'll see a list of four more options below it. One of them is Drag & Drop.

I'm at the Dashboard -> Pagelines page but this is what I see. Perhaps you have different options?

Hi jane_l

Please, you can try go to

Global Options > Enable v2 Compatibility Mode

You can see the image

Take care with the note:

PL has added some settings that may help you upgrade from Framework (v2). To use these, select them and then publish. 
Note that due to the substantial amount of changes in DMS, there may still be issues. These features will be removed with DMS v3.1.

 

You can see then

      I have to admit to being baffled.
      I'm trying to embed a video (from my WP media library) within a WP post using the videobox section shortcode.
      The shortcode section popup only allows two items to be configured - the section type, in this case videobox - and a unique id. There's no URL or other parameters such as autoplay or loop which are available within the Pagelines editor.
      Whatever I put in the unique ID makes no difference to what is shown which seems to be a default video with stars or white noise on a black background.
      I assume I need to define this ID somewhere else, or maybe WP has done it for me?
      HELP!
       
      PS This is the page source generated when a shortcode is added within the WP post editor
      <!-- VideoBox | Section --> <section id="videobox_1675853156" class="pl-sn pl-col-sm-12 pl-col-sm-offset-0 pl-sn-videobox" data-object="PL_VideoBox" data-clone="1675853156" data-level="0"><div class="pl-sn-wrap"><div class="pl-sn-pad fix" data-bind="pledit: true" > <div class="video-highlight"><h3 class="video-title" data-bind="pltext: vb_title"></h3></div> <div class="pl-video-box" data-bind="plcallback: { vb_autoplay: vb_autoplay(), vb_loop: vb_loop(), vb_controls: vb_controls(), vb_video: vb_video()}" data-callback="videobox"> <video id="280414138" autoplay loop > <source src="https://www.handinhandmanchester.org.uk/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-videobox/default.mp4?r=280414138" type="video/mp4" /> No browser html5 video. </video> <script> jQuery('#280414138')[0].load(); </script> </div> </div></div></section> </div>  
      If I add a videobox section using the Pagelines page editor the page source generated includes my video:
      <!-- VideoBox | Section --> <section id="videobox_udvu4uz" class="pl-sn pl-col-sm-12 pl-col-sm-offset-0 pl-sn-videobox" data-object="PL_VideoBox" data-clone="udvu4uz" data-level="0"><div class="pl-sn-wrap"><div class="pl-sn-pad fix" data-bind="pledit: true" > <div class="video-highlight"><h3 class="video-title" data-bind="pltext: vb_title"></h3></div> <div class="pl-video-box" data-bind="plcallback: { vb_autoplay: vb_autoplay(), vb_loop: vb_loop(), vb_controls: vb_controls(), vb_video: vb_video()}" data-callback="videobox"> <video id="429558737" autoplay loop > <source src="https://www.handinhandmanchester.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/HIHWelcome.mp4?r=429558737" type="video/mp4" /> No browser html5 video. </video> <script> jQuery('#429558737')[0].load(); </script> </div> </div></div></section>

      Hi,
      I am having an issue with the Lax sections on Platform 5. I can embed a widget or text box into a Lax section which is really neat, but the image in the background (the parallax image) seems to get stretched and doesn't scale in an attractive way.  For example, the page http://ed6.61e.myftpupload.com/#clients has a parallax section with a woman's face  and I thought is would scale as the browser window gets smaller but the zoom-level never changes. Also, the amount of parallax shift seems more dramatic than what we want. I thought that if I uploaded a shorter image it would scan/scroll less since the height from the image's top to bottom would be less. However, that doesn't seem to have any effect and I am at a loss of how to properly control the way the image is displayed within that box. Any thoughts, tips, or suggestions to get me pointed in the right direction?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      Hello,
      I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      Hello Everyone, 
      I think this one is for the pagelines team. 
      I have some trouble with the Adventure section plugin https://www.pagelines.com/product/pl-section-adventure/ that doesn't seem to load in any of the three websites I run using pagelines. 
      I do the setup via the extend platform as usual. It tells me that the plugin is installed and activated but unfortunately it doesn't appear on the page editor.
      I have just tried it consecutively with three websites I own with the same result.
      My intention was to use it with this website: http://launchpadweekend.foundersofthefuture.co/ (free version)
      And I also tried with this website http://foundersofthefuture.co/ (pro license) and this one http://ffactor.me/ (free version). And I have the same problem with each. 
      I would love to see how I could solve this issue. 
      Thanks a lot. 
      Pierre
