Flipper for DMS - Show by Category even possible?

Recommended Posts

JaffaDave

Hey all,

 

With the flipper drop in it allows you to select Post or Page simple enough, but is there any documentation to let me know how to select post type by category. If so would appreciate anyone guiding me in the right direction.

 

Thanks

- OK so its easy enough after all, add a custom field to your post and use a value to filter in flipper.

How can I set up a specific thumbnail image size like 200x100 as featured image? I am using detube video theme. I can upload any image size then it crops out the image to a specific size. Right now with DMS, I could not find an option to set up the size itself.

Hi,

 

i'm only new to DMS myself but I would say the easiest solution would to either create a class for it and set some custom CSS or set the default Wordpress thumbnail sizes under Settings|Media.

Yes, a custom size is done by CSS.

Hi JaffaDave,

 

The latest version of DMS (0.9.7) has updated functionality to populate the Flipper by category. Look for the new dropdown right under the Meta Key Value section http://d.pr/i/Zo9y

Have you searched the forums yet or checked out the DMS user docs?

Flipper does work by category. Actually, by categories, to be specific.

Hmm I cannot see this, I wonder why is that?

Hi you need to make sure posts are selected first from the drop down at the top, then publish/refresh. Then you'll see a new option at the bottom of the panel for selecting the category.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.
