Framework: Feature Sets Don't Appear in Menu on Page

Recommended Posts

I have a number of Feature Sets (see attachment 1)...

...and now want to select one of those Feature Sets on a certain page. Easy, right?

 

Problem. Only 7 Feature Sets appear in the menu on the page. (see attachment 2).

I have refreshed all pages, saved options, published etc many times. 

 

Sorry - Attachment 2 in next message thanks to the tiny upload per message limit. 

 

Any ideas anyone?

I've tried moving sub cat Feature Sets from out under the parent – didn't make any difference.

Hi,

 

So are you saying that if you have more than seven feature sets, then you can't select them in the drop down menu, as there is a max of seven only being displayed in the select field ?

Hiya Danny, 

 

Yes that's it...Ideally I'd like a structured feature set taxonomy...and all the sets, regardless of position in hierarchy, to appear in the select menu when I deploy the Feature Section on a given page..at the moment it only shows the same, somewhat random set of 7...

As you've probably heard by now, Framework is going to see no further product development.  That means extras, like Features, which use an older technology, will not be further developed.  If you're unhappy with its current configuration, I suspect the only possible solution is going to be to replace the slider with something more to your liking, or, hire a programmer to create a custom section based on the current Features.

 

I'm rather surprised at the limit of 7, and I've had more than that accessible.  I have more than 20 feature sets on my site, all available in the drop down selector menu for feature slides.

 

The limit you're facing may come from the creation of the feature sets and whether anything is assigned to them.  Framework is intelligent in that if the set is empty, it will not appear in a list to be selected.  After all, what's the point of selecting a set with nothing in it. Can you confirm that each set has slides assigned?

Someone give that man a medal! Read your message first thing this morning and before even checking it (which I now have) I knew it was right! 

Many, many thanks Rob! Excellent and brilliant. I was trying to 'pre specify' the Feature Set to be shown. Soon as you add at least one slide, there they all are. 

 

Probably I'm weird, but I can imagine cases where you would want to pre specify...like you build the taxonomy before you populate it. Maybe a connected thought is when you're piping stuff in from XML or something. And another thought would be – if/when you guys ever get chance – on screen documentation for these behaviours might save a lot of forum time. 

 

Anyway, well pleased I can crack on. Thanks again.

Ummm.... cough, cough... they already have, 27 times. But thank you!

 

I think the reasonable solution here is... create all the sets you want... just remember that when you want to apply one of them, add a slide to it first. Easy peasy!

      I've looked everywhere in the forum and haven't been able to find a workable solution. I'm using the feature slider on my main page. Rather than having the same order appear each time a user loads the page, I would love for it to display the features randomly. Likely this will require custom code, but that's beyond my abilities. Thanks in advance for the help.

      I have a new website (new.svctx.com) that I'm building for a client. I've added a Feature to the header that doesn't seem to load correctly. Maybe someone could take a look and give me some advice?
       
      Thanks!

      Hi Pagelines Team, 
       
      I'm adding blog posts to www.leadstoclients.com.au
       
      But would love to place the image between the 'title' and the 'content'. 
       
      I'm seeing these options: http://screencast.com/t/c1GggUigw
       
      But none of them seem to place the image where I hope it can be displayed. 
       
      Any tips on how I can get the image to appear here: http://screencast.com/t/F39iUNuq8Nd5 would be awesome. 
       
      Thanks for your help,

      Dear Pagelines Team,
       
      I want to create a website with a portfolio of the films I made.
       
      As "Portfolio" Page I use a template with the "Features" inside.
      My Problem: The Video should fill the right part of the feature box not just a bit.
       
      Remember to include as much information about your technical issue as possible for example:
      Website URL: http://imagefilmproduktion.com/portfolio/ (see Projekt 2 in the Features)
      Framework Version: 2.4.4
      WordPress Version: 3.6.1. 
      Plugins in Use: Exclude Pages, WIdget LOgic
      Server/Host: webspace
      Screenshots: attached
      Details:
       
      Now it looks like this: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B2P2Kbg4kca2amVVMHpRaXdVa1U/edit?usp=sharing
      But it should look like this (Mockup): https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B2P2Kbg4kca2eF9GdzZVMWgtY3M/edit?usp=sharing
       
       
      best wishes

      Since updating to the most recent Framework version and WP 3.6.1, the most ODD thing is happening to my Features. When I'm logged in as an admin, the feature looks perfect on the page, it works fine, no issues. When I'm logged out, the feature goes a bit haywire. As you can see from the attached images, the feature images line up under each other, and extend past the height of the feature container. This messes up the controls too and the feature nav is hidden. AND the feature doesn't rotate.
       
      I can't list the site URL as it is behind our corporate firewall. :(
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Thanks,
      Shawn
