Displaying Page Content in Section

4 posts in this topic

I'm working with DMS Pro to build a new site.


I'd like to use the content of a WP Page in a section so that the client can edit the information in the page, without worrying about editing on what is a rather long and complex home page design.


How can I display the content of one page in a section?

To display the content that has been written using the Wordpress page or post content editor, you need to add the Content/Post Section.

Thanks, Danny, but I'm still not seeing how to select a particular Page to show in the Content/Post Section. Where do I make the choice in the Content/PostLoop section for this?


Or is there supposed to be another section called Content/Post, instead of Content/PostLoop that I'm missing?


BTW, this is for a section on the Home Page where I'd like to display the contents of 1) a custom post type, and, 2) in another section on the home page, show the contents of a page (About Us).


Thanks for your help.

Not sure what you mean when you say a particular page ?

If you add the Content/PostLoop on a specific page it will display the content for that page. When you set Wordpress to a static front page, your posts are no longer available on that page without the use of a plugin as the front page is now a normal page and not a dynamic one.


So if you wish to display a content from a post or custom post type, you will need to use a plugin such as MiniLoops, the Loops or Special recent posts. You could also use a third party loop section there are some on the PageLines store.

      Hi there,
      I can't seem to find the hide section on mobile button etc. on my sections in DMS. I am a pro/club member and I have the DMS Pro Tools installed, but after searching long and hard in DMS and on the forum, I do not know where this is. Could someone provide a screenshot for me? maybe I dont have something installed properly. Thanks.
    • Heroes Section
      By hibbsy78+
      I just spotted the standalone Heroes section as opposed to the Elements>Hero section and I much prefer this layout with the larger text directly under the heading but again on mobile (iPhone) it screws the layout similar to the contact form 7 page (http://www.johnhibbs.me/contact/).

    • How to duplicate page
      By zetanet+
      I would like to use 10 iboxes (always the same 10 iboxes) as left menu on 12 pages. In this way, all pages have the same left menu and they changes only for the page main content.
      I don't want to set all 10 iboxes in all 12 pages (cause i should repeat 12 times the same values).
      Is it possible to duplicate a page with all the boxes already set eleven times in order to keep iboxes images/links and change only the page main content?
