Hello,

I am using the PLATFORM theme. I have it set to show just excerpts on the homepage. How do I edit it to show the excerpt, plus the image for the post? Your demo shows this capability.

Are you using DMS or PlatformPro?

 

I don't know of any literature or demonstrations we've offered that show excerpts only. That can be achieved with CSS.  May I have a link?

Thank you for your reply. Your Platform Pro has a whole section on configuring if a blog post shows in a excerpt or full on the initial page, blog page, search results and categories.

 

But I figured out how to add the image! In each post, there is the option to select a 'Feature Image'.

 

Thank you.

Excellent. 

 

You may want to consider upgrading to DMS, as PlatformPro is no longer supported. You will find it amazing. I convered a PPro site I built more than 2 years ago, to DMS... a big site too, and did it in under 90 minutes, including new graphics. It's amazing!

I am not pumped to hear that. I JUST signed up for wordpress.org and Platform Pro shows as an available template, along with a link to "get support". I just spent 2 weeks migrating my site over, not sure I am interested in doing it all again. Perhaps the template should be marked somewhere to indicate it isn't supported.

Platform Pro is on Wordpress.org? I find Platform (the lite version), and PageLines (the lite version of Framework), but not Platform Pro, which was a paid version.  Can you point me to the source of this?

Sorry - Platform is available. The Pro is an option to purchase.

 

Get the Pro Version
Platform is a free theme based on PageLines Framework, a premium product by PageLines.
Buy PageLines Framework for tons more options, sections and templates.

That's outdated information.  PlatformPro and Framework are no longer available for purchase. PlatformPro is more than 3 years old, and Framework, though younger, is being slowly replaced by DMS. While Framework still works, it cannot be purchased today.

 

DMS is the way to go, and a much, much better solution than the free version of Platform, which is quite old technology and much more difficult to use than DMS.

      Hey there,
       
      I am working on BentleyRolling.com. I used grams on MoonbodySoul.com and all the images are cropped to a square, whether they are square or 4:5 when posted on instagram, they still get cropped to a square. This looks way better than some being squares and some being 4:5. Did something change since I designed MoonBodySoul.com with Platform5? Can you help me crop all images to a square on BentleyRolling.com 
       
      All the best,

      HI, I have problems in page Editor to fully use platform 5.
      When I choose a Wordpress content section everything is fine : my post can be clicked.
      MY PROBLEM : When I choose a Platfom 5 section (like Magazine or MagX or Pins ou Loops...) and I click on my posts : nothing happens, it reboots on the home page.
      Can anybody help me please?

      How do I control the lightbox effect on the plugin "popthumbs"?  On mobile, it opens up much to small then when expanded it opens to large.  I would like to control the the lightbox to like 90% of the viewer window but I can't figure out how/where to control that.
      Site example

      Hi,
      I am using pl-section-journey and hiding most of the images. When running the page via google speed insights, it tells to optimize all the images that are in this plugins default. (e.g. https://queue-it.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-journey/images/drawer-5.jpg ) Like this one that is not visible on the website, but is a part of the plugin and comes up in google insights.
      I've deleted all the images in the plugin, but they still seem to come up. Ref. this page: queue-it.com/features

      Hi there!
      I'm trying to create a featured image for my new blog post. It has text in it, and when I add it as a featured image some of the text is cut off on the right.
      Could I get the ideal dimensions for featured images? Or, a way to customise the dimensions so that they are easier to fit in the way I need?
      Thank you kindly
      Nate
