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.
WP Content / Loop not displaying
Website URL: http://northernreivers.org/updates/
Framework Version: 2.1.5
WordPress Version: 3.9.2
Server/Host: GoDaddy Manage WP Hosting
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
UPDATE: I just downloaded DMS 2.1.5 and did an install as previously I had upgraded. Unfortunately still getting the same results.
Using Content/ Post Loop
By The Humanzee
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.
Custom Post Types, Custom Meta Boxes, Single Templates, Custom Post Loop
Before DMS—in themes—I would normally create (single-POSTTYPE.php) files and WP would know to pull that template to display the information for that post type.
I've read through every thread on the forum about custom post types and I understand there are several ways to approach displaying the information of custom meta boxes. (via plugins, short-codes, or editing functions.php of a child theme)
I've downloaded the customize-plugin, and I figured out to edit the functions.php in there to add hooks.
If I understand correctly, hooks allow you to swap out information (filters), or add new information (actions).
For instance, using (filter) hooks I can replace (post_author) with (custom_meta_field_A). Or using (action) hooks I can add (custom_meta_field_B) after (post_title).
What I don't understand is how you can use hooks to build templates for certain post types. I don't want my hooks to apply to all single posts, only for certain post types. I am basically asking how do I create the DMS equivalent of (single-POSTTYPE.php) files.
How can I create a page that shows a custom loop of certain post types? using hooks?
Editing The Post Loop Layout
By Mark & Phil
We need to edit the Post Loop layout to add some custom code and move things around. In normal wordpress theming we'd do this in the single.php but we've scoured the docs and the forums and find nothing like that.
Any ideas on how we can do it? Maybe same process as overriding a section?
Thanks for any help!
