home page to show image too?

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That's outdated information.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.

      Hello,
      I apologize for the trivial question, but I can not deal with it. How do I turn off the display of a distinctive image on the page? (I have to add it because I use plugins that use it), but as I display the page, I do not want it to be visible (and appears above the subject.).
      Probably a cliché but I can not deal with it. Therefore, a request for help.
      Regards
      RKA

      I have added a Lax section on the footer of this site: http://www.ics-law.org.php72-38.lan3-1.websitetestlink.com/ but the background image is not displaying. When I first add the image it appears in the background, but then after saving and reloading it is gone even though the thumbnail indicates it's still there. Screenshot attached.
      Any suggestions?

      I'm trying to add a Careers page to a site to display job openings. The plan is to create a Post using a subcategory 'Careers' and then display those on the page. All of the post sections in PL seem to include images and there's no obvious way to remove them or include an excerpt from the post. 
      Any suggestions?

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      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,
       
      Bentley
