I have a client and we're using postpins to display a bunch of posts that show recipes.

 

I'm trying to put some tidy content in the excerpt area to display but its not showing.

 

do excerpts work with postpins?

 

are there other options?

Hi John

 

Postpins by default takes the first 25 words from the content, it doesn't take custom excerpts unfortunately. There was a modded version that Simon provided some code for a user previously, see http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/23741-postpin-section-and-categories/


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 recently installed PostPins and it was working great until I accidentally deleted the section. When I added the section back onto the page (without changing a thing), the posts were separated by a significant gap. I tried removing my custom CSS, reinstalling the plugin, deactivating other plugins, refreshing the cache -- but nothing seems to work. Unfortunately, I was also unable to revert to the published site (although I had not published the the new layout). 
      The section is currently working on the published site (insatiablecuriosities.com). The mis-stacked section is shown in the attached image.

      When PostPins is active on a page, I get PHP warnings:
      Notice: Undefined property: PostPins::$icon in /www/wp-content/plugins/postpins/postpins.php on line 318 Notice: register_metatab is deprecated since version 1.2 of PageLines DMS! Use section_opts() instead. in /www/wp-content/themes/dms/dms/includes/deprecated.php on line 280
      It looks like PostPins is still using section_optionator() and should be using section_opts()
