Detect Current Post: Flipper, Post Featured Image

Recommended Posts

Both of the things I'm trying to do involve being able to detect the current post.

1. I'm attempting to use the flipper as a related posts area. All features work great (I love the meta fields functions), but I need it to not include the current post. I found a similar issue on the forum (http://forum.pagelin...p-current-post/) but the answers were not helpful.

2. When the current post shows the featured image, it links to itself. This is confusing and unnecessary in terms of user experience. The post loop clearly recognizes that the title should no longer be linked if it's a single post -- can the image do the same?

I'd prefer to make these changes through Pagelines Customize PHP -- I want to avoid making edits that will conflict with future updates.

Hi there, the flipper unit is coded to include the current post. Unfortunately its outside of our support spectrum to assist with editing the section directly, we can only point you in the correct direction to the resources for you to research and make changes independently etc using a filter or coding solution.

 

Regarding the image, I think this has already been addressed in the next release which is due shortly and should fix the issue.


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.

That's great news about the post image. Thanks for your reply.

 

As this is a forum -- has anyone out there used the flipper successfully in the way I described?

thanks 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 only want the images and title mouse-over, not link/click to the actual post the title is from.
      Any ideas anyone?
      Thanks

      Hi there!
      I'm trying to create a featured image for my new blog post. It has text in it, and when I add it as a featured image some of the text is cut off on the right.
      Could I get the ideal dimensions for featured images? Or, a way to customise the dimensions so that they are easier to fit in the way I need?
      Thank you kindly
      Nate

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      Hi there
      I have postgrid on a new site I am developing and want to try using png images as a featured image, but they are rendering on the page as a black square?
      Any ideas as to why? 
      the site example is here http://orionglobalms.com/ scroll down to our services section and the first one has a png image as a featured image
       
      Many thanks
      Paul

      Is there any way to hide the excerpt in Flipper, and the navigation arrows?
