masthead in header of homepage only?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

I am trying to get a masthead to only appear on the homepage of my site. While using DMS, I try to do local section options it works fine, but it's still posting to every other page as well. 

 

Any ideas on how to disable it from showing on all the other pages?

Thanks!
Jason

You could try creating a template based on the home page and use that template just for the home page, whilst using the default or another one for all others. You can also assign these templates to individual pages from WP backend.

Thanks Navigador, the issue I'm having though is that a masthead in the header doesn't seem to want to stick with a template even after I save it if I go and delete it on another page. Saving templates has not done anything for me so far, and I don't see where I can assign mastheads to templates like the old drag and drop Pagelines system had. Any ideas?

Thanks Steve, for your contribution.

 

Jason,  adding any section to the Header or Footer are, by nature, global elements. Have you considered just adding the Masthead below the header as the first element under it on a static homepage, and creating a custom template for that page?

 

That would be the easiest method.

Of course the current state DMS still has many shortcomings, perhaps we needed to wait to run it, we hope to get quick updates on all functions.

Clodis,  I agree. Some testing by and site developer before full implementation would be in order.  Just to learn how things go.  Most of the problems stem from people pushing buttons and ringing bells without reading the manual.  Unfortunately, we can't change the nature of a header to be localized as requested.

 

One could emulate a masthead using a sidebar with text widget in the header, and applying Widget Logic to tell the text widget where to appear. But the best method is the one I described above. Top item, just below the header.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      Hi team,
      checking my site today, i'm surprised to see my MegaNav all in bottom of the pages, while it's in header.
      After getting to change it in couple of pages onto Template part (too time consuming !), i'm desperate and ask you for help :-)

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.
