Content/PostLoop in REVO theme doesn't work

Recommended Posts

Rob

Hi Luis,

 

The RevSlider is not the same as our old Feature Slider, which was customized by our developers to use categories.  The RevSlider does not use categories and does not have any alternative source for slides.  All slides in RevSlider must be manually added, one at a time at present.

 

As the DMS Store grows, other sliders will arrive with this option.

Hi Rob,

 

Thanks for your answer. 

 

I was not talking about the Slider. I realized I sent the link to an area that shows the error on the slider.

 

I meant for the category area. For instance:  http://revo.ahansson.com/category/modern/   In teh Revo theme, if you go to the end of the page and click in any of the categories it gives you a 404 page.

 

It is the content/postloop area that doesn't work in REVO theme. Doesn't show the extract of different posts. The following link to a different theme  http://faithful.usingpagelines.com/category/uncategorized/    shows the category: uncategorized this template shows the posts.

 

 

How can I make the  content/postloop to work for categories?

 

Thanks again,

 

Luis

I am also struggling with getting content/post loop working for categories. If only there was an idiots guide for DMS!

Hi Newbie,

 

I am still dealing with this problem. it seems that many themes either don't have this option or it is design in that way (which would be weird)...In the theme Flyite, that area works.

 

Hey guys... some help with this!

I apologize.  I confused Revolution Slider and Revo Child Theme and RevSlider.    I've moved this topic to the Revo Child Theme developer's queue.  I'd expect a reply within 24 hours.

Hey,

I didnt see this before now.

I will look into this ASAP!

Unfortunately there is no way to push updates for the store developers right now because of the hack. Therefore there is no way for me to push an update before this is getting solved by PL.

I am still trying to find the section that will show categories. Any suggestion?

Ok...now this is getting silly and I don't think this is a rocket science.

 

I am using Postloop...in REVO. If I click a category, the page says "Nothing found"...before there was a 404 page.

 

see pic  00000.JPG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Am I placing Postloop in the wrong place?   is there a global settings where postloop should go?

 

I expect that when I click in any category (see pic below) the page loads all the posts in that category. That is not happening.  Please help

yes, what I did is a rename REVOnew and uploaded via FTP and then changed the name and delete the old one.

 

Also,  I am using Multisite. I have 9 sites, some of them will use REVO and others sites will use a different template (DMS child). I am using 2 or 3 sites with REVO. I wonder if I should duplicate REVO, like REVO-1, REVO-2, etc. for each site.

 

I asked this question before in the forum and somebody answered saying that that is not necessary, with one child should be fine. I am following that. For Pagelines I rename the child theme.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Luis

Another observation, I noticed that in the DEMO http://revo.ahansson.com/     happens the same. In the home page, if you scroll to the bottom, below tags, there are Categories...    if you click on them all of them gives you error or 404 page: http://revo.ahansson.com/category/modern/  ,  http://revo.ahansson.com/category/sans-serif/   ,   http://revo.ahansson.com/category/simple/  , etc.

 

 

Thanks for your help

About this.

You should only have one childtheme of each. This is because you should not edit any files within the childtheme. This is what hooks and plugins are for.

By not changing any files, it is your wordpress database that is taking care of all the changes and it doesnt matter if it reads the static content from one place or 9 different places. Do you understand?

Yea, I didnt update the demo yet. Doing that right now to see if I get the same error. However it looks like a permalink issue. Can you try and set permalinks to default and see if there still is a problem?

Yup.

Setting permalinks to default -> saving -> refreshing a category page -> setting permalinks back -> saving -> refreshing the category page..... is working on my demo.

Yea, but you can change it back afterwards.

You just have to reset permalinks for some reason.

I think it was beacuse of Folio having a function that wasnt supposed to be in there. - which is removed now ;)

Hi again,

 

I guess I am close however still not working.

 

yes, I changed to the default and it works...but I have the ugly url. Then I change back to the customize permalink and then it doesn't work again. Any other strategy? please advice.

 

thanks for your help
