PopThumbs - change the expander icon

Recommended Posts




I want to change the default expander icon for the PopThumbs sections of DMS.


The icon is currently the Font Awesome "icon-plus"


I want to change it to the Font Awesome "icon-resize-full"


I want this to be a site wide change. Can anybody help?

Thank you in advance :)

In order to change the icon, you will need to create a child section of PopThumbs and then change the icon in the section.php file. Search for icon-plus and you there should be two results, replace both with your icon of choice.


You can find more information on how to create a child of section following the instructions here - http://docs.pagelines.com/advanced/override-sections

Thank you for your reply.


I am confused about the page you've linked to;



1) "Make sure Base Theme is installed from our Store"


I can't find Base Theme in the store





2) The picture is showing the Base Theme for Framework. Is Base Theme the same files for both Framework and DMS?



3) Will activating Base Theme override/remove any work I've already done in DMS?



I appreciate your help with this.

Thank you for your help. I have created the look that I wanted using this method.


I offer to edit the docs page, to make it more understandable for beginners like me. Is this OK?

      Hi Team,
      I am looking to style the Continue Reading Button with the PHP you provided in an earlier ticket here: 
      I put the PHP code into my site, however I do not get my Icon back, I just get back Read More >>
      I have attached a screenshot of the code in place on my site along with the output.
      Interested to know what I may be doing wrong? - I am very new to PHP so a bit apprehensive on this.

      How can I save a page in one Platform 5 site for upload to a different site?
      Have a site in which there are a couple extensive extensive Portfolio pages made with Popthumbs, buttons and text sections. Clients are going their separate ways and need to split site into 2 different sites. I'd hate to have to recreate these pages. There MUST be a simple way to download a page and it's content from one site and upload it to a new site - not recreate the whole site, just selected (popthumbs) pages. Did asearch in forum for this and got zero results. Investigated the save/load templates extension but don't see how that can work for this case.
      Thanks for advise.

      Should be a simple answer but not sure why its not doing this.  I have a child theme installed on pagelines 5 that has a hook so it will write over the theme css. Strange is that when I am on the frontend the code works but in the dashboard your theme takes over my code and its no where to be found. See examples attachments

      How do I control the lightbox effect on the plugin "popthumbs"?  On mobile, it opens up much to small then when expanded it opens to large.  I would like to control the the lightbox to like 90% of the viewer window but I can't figure out how/where to control that.

      Most of the PopThumbs on my site won't expand, those that do are very hard to click on.
      How can I solve this? The site is http://icecare.nl
      Thanks in advance,
