Archiving Posts to Pages by Category

Hi,

 

What I am trying to do is probably simple but I am new to Wordpress and have not been able to figure it out.

 

Basically I have different themes for posts and I am trying to have them sent automatically to different pages. For example when I write a post for a review I want to tag this as a "Review" in categories and then have it appear on a "Reviews" page that I have created as well as the main feed on the main page.

 

Any help would be appreciated and I can provide more information if this was unclear.

 

Thanks

Hi jonesbre10 - I believe I understand what you're trying to accomplish and think the best course of action would be for you to use a plugin called Special Recent Posts http://wordpress.org/plugins/special-recent-posts/. This will allow you to use a shortcode to display posts just from specific categories on each of your individual pages.

Have you searched the forums yet or checked out the DMS user docs?

Hi and thanks for the response. I've tried widgets like these before and this seems to be one of the better ones.

 

One issue I have been having with them is they don't allow for page breaks. This way when the posts start to add up it could lead to having too much content on one page where I would prefer a way to "click next page to older posts" like there is on the main page. If you know of anything or anyway to faciliate this that would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

 

In theory, you don't need pagination of the special pages with SRP on it, as you can provide a simple link at the bottom of the page to the category view. You can even create that link in your template to go to page 2 of the category view.

 

So, when you create a post, make sure you apply it to all categories where you want it viewed.  It will appear in the category view (go to Dashboard > Posts > Categories, select one, and view it).  Now, you can see those pages have pagination.

 

You then create a custom page, applying the SRP shortcode the page can be designed as you desire.  At the very bottom, you can create the link to Page 2 of the category view in a text box. Make an SRP page for every category.

      Hi,
      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      https://staging4.talltreemusicfestival.com/2017/grand-analog/
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.

      I've created a new post category "Success stories" with Custom Post type UI. (in order to have a different layout for a different post category - blog post one layout, success stories another layout).
      New category "success stories" are "detached" from all the other posts, so they have a different layout, but the problem is that all of the success stories are also having the same exact content.
      So whenever I edit content (e.g. change body text) on one of success story posts, it also changes the content (body text) for all other Success story category posts. 
       
      Question: Is there a way to retain this separate category with it's own layout, and have a different content for each individual post? I'm using Pagelins templates. 
       Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
      Is is possible to have different layouts for different Post categories? We have Blog posts, News posts and Case studies that all are posts, but is it possible to differentiate their layouts?
      So far when I change a post layout it affects all Post type pages. Could it be done somehow with creating a separate template? 
      Examples below

      I'm trying to find a way to display the full content of my posts on my posts page rather than the post excerpt. 
      I've tried using various plugins to create a custom excerpt with no success, so I'm guessing I'll need to make the change to the theme files. That being said I'm not able to find where I would make that change. In the past I've been able to replace <?php the_excerpt(); ?> with <?php the_content(); ?>, but I'm unable to locate this in the framework theme? Am I missing something here?

      Hello
      Anyone know why Posts will not appear on a website?
      We can see them all in the admin console but the website with the page for the posts - https://www.trueblueauctions.com/articles/ shows the titles but when you click on an article they do not appear.  Example: https://www.trueblueauctions.com/phone-call-estate/  Notice the article content is not present.  
      It is this way for all posts on our website.
      Anyone have any ideas of what could be wrong and how to fix it?
      Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
      Wishing you all the best of Providence.
