Recommended Posts

I just updated the DMS theme.Following the update, I am no longer able to configure the List Mode layout to display a wide full-column image above the post text. Instead only the thumbnail image view is available.

DMS: 1.1.6

Hi there, that page looks like its using clips/excerpts. In your post loop setting do you have the clip thumbs set to display in left? If so change to ontop. http://screencast.com/t/mMkMixCdnmLf


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.

James B that's working. Did you guys change this feature? I thought in the past that List Mode defaulted to that wide image view.

 

Thanks!

No that I'm aware of its always been that way. There is an option in magazine mode to make the first 'x' amount of posts full width, you might have used that in the past instead? That makes the image larger at the top forthe first 'x' amount of posts full width and larger then the ones below which are in the magazine excerpt mode.

I think something has changed. Using magazine mode and 'set number of full width posts' to x has no effect, they don't appear full width. 

 

Plus there are issues with the feature image by default appearing in the postloop which needs to be configured to only appear as a thumbnail. And the post metabar selection seems inconsistent.

nfp1900 I've just tested the magazine mode with full width posts on top, this seems to be working ok after savings and refresh - http://screencast.com/t/15ANUwtiSvK

 

Do you mean the feature image appearing on top of the post?

      I am working on a site that uses post categories to organize a large collection of cocktail recipes (such as 'Fall Cocktails', 'Winter Cocktails', 'Spring Cocktails', and 'Summer Cocktails'). I am trying to style the category pages so that a user will land on the Fall page and see the fall posts in a two-column setup. The Pagelines Content section has no real post display options to speak of so I am trying to work within the Loops section, which does produce the overall visual effect that we are hoping for. However, it means that I have to create a Loops section for every single category page and tell it to show the posts for that specific category (Fall posts on the Fall Category page, Spring posts on the Spring page, etc). We actually have about 25 cocktail categories so creating unique pages for each category isn't going to be very time effective for us - especially if we want to change a setting later and have to go to each page to do that.
      So, my question is whether or not there is a way to control general category pages or if there are any other good post loop options that you recommend. This used to be much easier in the past versions of Pagelines and DMS so I just want to make sure I am not missing something within this new system.
      Thanks so much for the help!

      I am trying to have my post show up on more than the static page that is defined in >settings>reading.
      I would very much like the post to able to be displayed on 2 other pages "like a second and third recent posts that is displayed like a blog.
      Any help would be great.
      I am somewhat familiar with how coding works but not advanced enough to write the code I think I need for this.
      is there an easier way.

      I'm struggling to get the WP Content / Loop to display at this site.
       
      There are posts on the site which I can display using a Widget Shortcode workaround but as you can see here it's not as pretty. http://northernreivers.org/field-guide/
       
      Tried disabling all the plugins as well and got the same result.
       
      Hoping to be told I'm an idiot and I've just missed something.
       
      Thanks in advance

      Hello
       
      I am wondering if there is a way to use more than one Post Loop content section on the same page. I really do not care for the formatting of the Text Box section and i would like to use 2 or more Post Loop sections (with different content in each) on the same page. Can this be achieved? 
       
      thank you pure human friends.
