How to have Blog and Locations in URL By Themselves

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I originally had problem

 

My site http://www.elitehvaccontractors.com/ not having a main blog page for blog ,

 

I changed my permalink

 

To custom /blog/%postname%/ and now I have a blog page http://www.elitehvaccontractors.com/blog/

 

New problem developed

 

My location page went from http://www.elitehvaccontractors.com/locations/hvac-contractors-collegeville-pa/

To the following: http://www.elitehvaccontractors.com/blog/locations/hvac-contractors-collegeville-pa/

 

 

I need help with the following:

  • Keeping Blog main page for web site
  • Change locations back to original and not have it follow blog file

Goal:

http://www.elitehvaccontractors.com/blog/

http://www.elitehvaccontractors.com/Locations/

 

NOTE:

I use plug in Yoast WordPress SEO: Local SEO have contacted them and they say plug in is working and resulting because I put blog in custom permalink. They could not support any further advice.

If I take blog out then my main blog page disappears.

  

 

Thank you in advance for a solution,

Tim Geiger

Hi Tim

 

I'm think I'm following you. Have you done the below.

 

To set a blog page which isn't on the homepage you can do this in settings>reading.

 

First create a new blank page called blog and save.

 

Then go to settings>reading and you'll see an option to set a static homepage and a static blog page. Select from the drop down an option for both, make sure posts is the blog page you just created.

 

In your permalinks remove the /blog/ from the permalink setup.


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.

I know my home page is static but never saw that option for blog. I have blog page, do I have to make another or can I use the one existing?

 

I will try and let you know how I do.

 

Thanks,

Hi there, if you have one already made using a static page you can use that page from the posts drop down, you won't have to create another one.

Thank you 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.

      We are building a long-page scrolling site with Pagelines 5. Our menu is made with # links that go to a container's unique ID, e.g. container_ux7al6g
      This works, but it doesn't look great in the menu. Is it possible to assign a 'nice' # link, e.g. /#solutions ? 
      We used to do this in the DMS2 platform through a workaround, but that doesn't seem to be possible now. 
      Any suggestions?

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I am having issues with being able to post to my blog with platform 5. Currently when i click publish, it just shows the homepage of MoonBodySoul.com. That is until i open the page editor and change the scope from "All of type: Posts" to "Current Page Only". Then I have to re-insert the menu header as well. This seems like a really dumb process. In past versions of pagelines, I could just post a blog and the menu would be there and there would be no formatting issues. What can I do to fix this?

      From a SEO perspective the PL5 Plugins: Elements and Impulse are producing site struture problems with the h1-hX tags and i dont make a designer very happy, cause the problems can not resolved easy way.
      reasons:
      1. Impulse
      If you add item slide headers its rendered as graphic text - not readable by searchengines. result is an empty h2. second impulse is most times one of first element on the site. the h2 tag to be first is wrong. it must be h1.
      in order to fix it i have to place an h1 text elements before impulse - which destroys my beautifull layout.
      2. Elements
      For Layout reason the PL5 plugin generates h1 and a h3 headline in order to style the layout (as you know headline elements should not be used for styling). This is also not correct, cause from seo perspective only one h1 ist recommended on page. With placing callouts and heros in the content you have an additional h1, which indicates wrong content to searchengines. h1 is on a correct SEO website one of the first elements.
      in my case i use different callouts and heros sometimes 2 or more on a side and than i have to all this h1-h3 structure problems
      Questions:
      For Elements i build now a SPAN solution with shortcodes to replace elements callout, but this is also not perfect. is there a way to modify the headlines 1) by a functions add_filter 2). modify the plugin source code in a child theme?
      would be nice if we can have a dicussion on it...or somebody has a solution for this problem....i am trying now for some days finding a solution maybe i am blind but not stupid.

      How do you move the thumbnail on a blog post?  I need the thumbnails for the blogroll page, but they show up at the top of the actual post page.  Normally, this would be fine, but I've been requested to put it under the blog title.  Any suggestions?
      Thanks.

      My client is asking for a new blog layout similar to the one found here:  http://blog.perkinswill.com/pokemon-augmented-reality-and-the-future-of-urban-design/ 
      They have a splashy full-width background image overlaid with part of the blog and one sidebar.  The navigation arrows send you to the next post.
      Does anyone know if this is even possible using Framework 5?  If so, can you send me some advice on how to get here?
      Totally stuck!
      Thanks.
