Details:  I'm using DMS and trying to modify a blog post page by adding a 2 Column Layout to the template section. The problem is that whenever I try to add the Post Loop component to one of the columns, the other one reallocates itself below the first column. Moreover, the reallocated column (whether empty or has another plugin added to it) doesn't allow me to modify its size nor I can move it at all.  I've included a video link explaining everything.

Hi mzhafzah

 

Please, you can disable every Chrome extension and you see if this have caused the problem.
Especially a chrome extension called Galaxy for Chrome OS.

Hi batman,

 

I have disabled all the extensions and restarted Google Chrome, but nothing have changed. I've supported you with a screenshot with all the extensions already installed on Google Chrom with this link:

Technically, you shouldn't be adding postloop into a post. 

 

Instead, if you want to add a list of posts into a post, use a plugin like Special Recent Posts, with its shortcode added to a contentbox or text widget, or directly into the post itself.

You're right, but in the DMS, once I put the Post Loop inside a post page, it displays the content of that specific post (this is what i want). It's like this plugin plays double roles; the one I've just mentioned in addition to the one you've mentioned too about list of posts (if the plugin was put on the main blog master/parent page.)

 

Now I'm not sure if there is another way to show that specific post article content with the DMS. If there is, please let me know; it is even better if it solves the main issue too.

Well, the post loop is in the post page template.  Please login to your dashboard.  Look at PageLines > Drag & Drop > Content Area > Blog Post.  So, if you add Content/PostLoop via the Visual Editor, you're effectively repeating the loop on the post and will see it twice. 

 

Honestly, I urge you to read the docs at http://docs.pagelines.com.  This may help a bit with your understanding of DMS (and I'm speakng to all who read this topic, not you specifically).

Hi, let me check out the documents again. But as a side note, I'm not having any duplicates of any kind so far. Plus I'm no longer using the Pagelines framework. I'm using the Pagelines new DMS, and it doesn't have the directory "PageLines > Drag & Drop > Content Area > Blog Post" as you've mentioned.

I've gone through the docs again, I've run through everything I could understand excluding the segments including CSS, PHP, .... since i am not a programmer and can't understand anything of it.

 

Still the problem prevails for me, any suggestions?

Hi @mshafzah

Please, you can try go to

Global Options > Advanced > 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

Ok, I've done the changes suggested. Nothing changed so far, I guess I need to wait for the next update of the DMS, right?

batman"] @[member="Rob, I assure you that I did nothing but all of a sudden, everything worked fine. Honestly speaking I don't want to reallocate any element so it won't scramble again.

But the good thing for me that it is working now :)

I suspect our developers have put back some of the APIs that were needed to accomplish your goals.  There should be no further worries.

      I am working on a site that uses post categories to organize a large collection of cocktail recipes (such as 'Fall Cocktails', 'Winter Cocktails', 'Spring Cocktails', and 'Summer Cocktails'). I am trying to style the category pages so that a user will land on the Fall page and see the fall posts in a two-column setup. The Pagelines Content section has no real post display options to speak of so I am trying to work within the Loops section, which does produce the overall visual effect that we are hoping for. However, it means that I have to create a Loops section for every single category page and tell it to show the posts for that specific category (Fall posts on the Fall Category page, Spring posts on the Spring page, etc). We actually have about 25 cocktail categories so creating unique pages for each category isn't going to be very time effective for us - especially if we want to change a setting later and have to go to each page to do that.
      So, my question is whether or not there is a way to control general category pages or if there are any other good post loop options that you recommend. This used to be much easier in the past versions of Pagelines and DMS so I just want to make sure I am not missing something within this new system.
      Thanks so much for the help!

      I just upgraded to the platform 5 and all my post lop content in static pages is not visible on the site, although it is  selected in the page setup.

      Hi to all,
      I always have this problem and I'm unhappy with the fix I usually apply for aligning columns at the bottom (see attached).
      For example: I use two text boxes side by side. Both text columns have a background colour. Text column 1 has 200 words and text column 2 has 300 words.
      How do I easily get them to align at the bottom without using a min-height declaration? I want to get text column 1 with 200 words to fit the height of text column 2 if that makes sense?
      Thanks for any help on this!
      Cheers,
      James

      Hello!
      I am getting pretty tired of things that does not work as it should in DMS. Now it is impossible to have a two column footer with quickslider as one of the items. Take a look here http://pehjaproduction.se/kulingen/
      I have tried three column, two column, no column. nothing works.

      Hi,
      I am trying to change the right side column background color. I tried using Chrome's inspect element and was not able to find the right css to change. 
      Below is an example of a two-column page. I would like to change the right side background column color.
      http://travelblogfest.com/free-online-photography-courses-for-beginners/dslr-camera/what-is-aperture-priority/
      I'm trying to make the column look like this on the right side, http://www.pagelines.com/showcase/ Where the background is gray and shows leaderboard and trending sites.
