Exclude one category from CSS changes & Add secondary navigation to category

Recommended Posts

strapanese

Goal: I would like to add a category for “Press Releases” so my press releases can be posts in their own category, but this category will be formatted differently than the other existing categories.

 

What I have...

I have my current categories acting as "Service Areas" and our agency's Programs are posts under the Service Area categories. These Service Area categories are formatted to have an image and description at the top and to show the entire content of each Program (post).

 

What I want...

I want my Press Releases category to have a secondary navigation bar and show a set number or preview characters from the Press Release (post), along with the post date.

 

THE BREAKDOWN...

 

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

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

I just don’t know how to adapt the CSS to exclude one category.

 

2. I would like the content box section to be hidden in the Press Releases category.

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?

 

3. I would like my Press Releases 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/

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?

 

 

Please advise if this is possible. Will email moderator if necessary.

I'm sorry...this is a CMS Pagelines Framework topic, not a DMS topic. Can you direct me to someone who can help?

Hi there,

 

I've adjusted the category for you so this relates to Framework and not DMS. Unfortuantely we can't provide the direct css code to achieve this as that's classed as designing the site which outside of out support spectrum. 

 

However, you can achieve each of the above using css, depending on your setup.

 

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

You can add the date/meta to both pages in the PageLines>site options>blogs and posts and then use css to hide on the page where it's not required using page specific css.

 

For example something like .my category .post-meta .metabar {display:none;}

 

2. I would like the content box section to be hidden in the Press Releases category.

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?

 

.category-name .content-box {display:none;}

 

3. I would like my Press Releases 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/

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?

 

.page-id-xxxx .secondnav {display:none;}  replacing the page id with the id from your site.

 

Hope this helps


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.

      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.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I know this is not an easy problem. Maybe there is a easy solution.
      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi Pagelines team and wider community,
      I am looking to develop a single post page for my blog. I have read over an old article on the subject, however the link provided on achieving this goal was giving me security warnings. Is there any way I can get round this?
      Secondly, I have had a root around the .zip file provided on my sites backup, however was unable to locate any file in there with the name of Single.php. Does this file exist in the Pagelines theme?
      By the way, this is the unsafe article: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/create-a-custom-page-template/ (Click at your peril).

      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
