Add category with different modifications that other categories

Recommended Posts

Goal: I would like to add a category for “Press Releases” so my press releases can be posts, rather than linked Google Docs.

 

Problems:

 

I would like my post date to show in the Press Releases category, but not my service area categories.

Service area category -> http://highlandscsb.org/category/outpatient/

I know this will require modification of the already-modified CSS…I just don’t know how to adapt the CSS to exclude one category.

 

I would like my Press Release category to have a secondary navigation just like the other pages in my Newsroom. Is this possible?

Current Press Releases page with secondary nav -> http://highlandscsb.org/pressreleases/

 

Please advise. Will email moderator if necessary.

I would imagine the best way to make press releases is to create a custom post type and customize the layout of posts to include typical information for press releases.  This plugin may help you, though I haven't tested it.  It would assist in creating and displaying custom fields for that taxonomy (category). http://wordpress.org/plugins/types/

Okay, thank you. I will look into that. What about the secondary navigation?

You can just add the Simple Nav section to your Press Release page and select your menu.

Press Releases will be a category, not a page. Am I able to add a Simple Nav section to only one category and not all of them? How do I do that?

Hi there, applying to the category template will apply to all category pages. You could use css to hide/display depending on the category page.

 

For example, after placing into the layout on the category page, set simple nav not to display sitewide. Then using css, set it to display on one particular page you want, something like the below

 

#simple_navluxwi0 {display:none;}

 

then

.category-my-new-category #simple_navluxwi0 {display:block;}


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.

What you said makes sense. Thank you. I know what I need to do, just not HOW to do it. Can you help with the CSS?
 
I added the simple nav and the banners sections to the Category template. I then placed a variation of your code into my site but I did it wrong...
 
#simple_navluxwi0 {display:none;}
.category-press-releases #simple_navluxwi0 {display:block;}
 
As you can see, I replaced .category-my-new-category with .category-pressreleases and it did not work (pressreleases is the slug so I assumed...) and then I tried .category-press-releases with no avail.
 
  1. What do I need to put in the CSS so that the "simple nav" and "banners" sections are visible in the Press Releases category and hidden in the others?
  2. What do I need to put in the CSS so that the "content box" section is shown in all categories EXCEPT the Press Releases category?

Outpatient Services Category (accessible on live site): http://highlandscsb.org/category/outpatient/

At this moment in time, you will need to use CSS to achieve this as far as I know. However, there is a issue on our issue tracker that will make this easier when it has been fixed. This means that you will be able to (if implemented) to have different category templates.

Okay, in the mean time, is there someone who can help me figure out how to structure and code my CSS to achieve my desired results?

      Hello,
      We are working on a 2 languages site (https://liguecardioliga.be) with wpml, and lately the call of a category in the loops section (and all the sections requiring a category to select posts) doesn't work in the translated language. It worked well until recently so I wonder if it's because of a recent update (wordpress, wpml, pagelines, a plugin?). Anyone has the same problem? a solution?
      TIA

      Hi guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hello,
       
      I'm basically a designer and understand a little on how to change CSS, etc., so please excuse my ignorance...  I recently upgraded to the newest platform from the DMS and my old DMS theme no longer functions.  I'm trying to replace the image slider that my Horizon Photography Theme (Nick Haskins) had created.  The Impulse image slider seemed the closest to what I need, but there are problems.
      It seems the the Impulse section for sliding images defaults to the image width, no the height.  I can change the Impulse stage height and width, but this does nothing to the internal content.  For instance, if I change the height to 200 pixels, the image remains the full width and only shows a cropped section.  I would like the ability to change the Impulse height, and have the image height fit space. 
      I've put this custom CSS in, but again, this only controls the stage height of Impulse:
      .pl-sn-impulse .pl-impulse-cell .cell-wrap, .pl-impulse-container, .owl-stage-outer {
        width: 100%;
      }
       
      Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks

      Hello. 
      I have just realized that CSS (Less plugin) , is not working..... I have disable all plugins (except PL CUSTOM LESS and PL5) , and ... it's not working ... 
      It's not the first time. Usually I had trouble with a plugin name Autoptimize , but it's Desactivate now , all memory have been purge, and it's still not working! :-/ So it's not from this plugin. 
      NB : When I am logged on my website, if i go on the black wordpress dashboard bar, go on the PL icon, clic on </> LESS/CSS => then the page suddenly apply the CSS .... But As soon that i reload the page, nothing. I think the problem is that the plugin LESS/CSS does not load properly (if I can say that with my simples words).
      I order to keep the site "good looking" I have temporally copy/paste all my LESS code in a plugin : Script n Styles that apply the LESS/CSS code... but it's not a solution for long time.
      Can someone help me ? Did I do something wrong ? Is it an update ?

      Feel free to delete this post if its not helpful or its just plain wrong.
       
      I though it might be useful to share how I customize the size of the builder. (reduce my eyestrain )
      1 - install stylerbot extension in chrome (stylerbot keeps this css every time you access the url)
       
      2- add this css to stylerbot for the site you are working on
      .CodeMirror {
          font-size: 14px;
          height: 600px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .pl-workarea-sidebar-container {
          right: 0px;
          width: 500px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .iframe-container {
          right: 500px ;
      }
       
      change sizes to suit.
       
      Cheers.
