Problem with hiding excerpts since update...

Recommended Posts

I recently updated to the latest version of Pagelines DMS, and now on my homepage in the full width posts section, there is an excerpt followed by the full width post itself. I've gone in and tinkered with the 'Content/Postloop' section as I had in the previous version(s) only to be left with some mangled version of what I would like.

 

I've ticked the box to hide excerpts, does not work.

 

Any ideas. I am sure/hopeful that this is an easy fix...?

Best,

Thanks for letting us know :) 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Hi vancityprettyadmin,

 

If you click on the Content/PostLoop section, you'll see options for the layout of that area for your post's design. Use those and you'll make your posts appear as desired.   DMS is exceptionally innovative in allowing you to use settings to create the layout that you desire without having to write CSS code (as in the past) to achieve results.

 

Also, in future, if a post is marked resolved, please open a new one as resolved topics are usually not answered again.

 

Thanks for your kind understanding.

Hey, just including a more in depth explanation of what I did to resolve this issue on my end...

 

--------

 

In the Content/PostLoop DMS config section, these are my settings:
 
Layout and & Config:
 
-List Layout Mode
-Show full content of posts? (not clicked)
 
Thumbs:
 
-Hide Thumbs? (not clicked) / I don't use thumbs
 
Metaconfig:
 
-Default
 
Excerpts:
 
-Hide excerpts: (not clicked)
 
-Continue Reading Link Text (empty)
 
-Number of Words (empty)
 
------
 
Prior to the update, I i had the 'hide excerpt' box clicked and possibly changes in some of the other options, but afterwards, it seemed to do the opposite of what it claimed.. Not sure why, probably a bug of sorts, or maybe just something on my end.

Hi vancityprettyadmin,

 

Is moreapplesaday4's solution working for you?

Hi, 

 

Nope. No luck.

 

Also, this wouldn't be a solution for me anyway because I need:

 

1) Magazine mode

2) Thumbs on top

3) No excerpt

4) No author name, date etc.

 

Right now when I change these atributes in the Post/Loop options in the editor, they won't stick no matter what I do.

Make sure you have the latest version of DMS installed. As I am running version 1.1.2. and I am unable to recreate your issue.

If you're having issue with Settings saving, this could be related to a plugin conflict, I recommend you disable all active plugins except for DMS Pro Tools and see if this resolves your issue.

      just migrated from Frameworks to the newest DMS (pro)
       
      When I was using Frameworks, under the "Blog and Posts" settings, I used the "Allowed Tags" option in the Clip Excerpts to enable elements like <iframe><img><object> to appear in the excerpt shown on my blog page.
       
      I used that feature extensively... thankfully there's a legacy option that has enabled me to continue abusing that feature. 
       
      Is there a better way to be doing this (allowing, for example, images or embedded YouTube videos to show up in excerpts displayed on the Blog page?

      Hi
      Is there any option to set up flipper thumbnail on the side rather than on top of the excerpts?, or some codding will be involved?
      Thanks
