DMS2 and PostLoop Page Titles

Recommended Posts

mckdesign

Hi. Upgraded today. So far, working pretty well on an existing site. However, I notice that my PostLoop page titles aren't displaying, and it's not an option for the section (that I can see, at least). I had them enabled in 1.1.8.

 

I've looked over the docs online. Where/how does one globally display page titles, and how does one disable locally, in DMS 2?

 

Thanks!

Tim

do you have a link to your site so we can see how you have this setup? 


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.

Hi there,

 

I'm not sure I'm following what you mean, do you mean a title for the postloop area? If so this is included in the section options - http://screencast.com/t/UCDc2Mtg5fEi

 

Or do you mean like in the Framework where it used to have an option for the page title to be displayed at the top of a static page?


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.

Hi, James. I meant like in DMS 1.1.7, where one could opt to show or hide the Page Title on a static page. See http://54.83.19.162/page-title.png

 

In my template in that version, all static pages will display the page title. In the new version, it appears now that my users will be required to add the page title in the DMS editor for each and every page on the website, instead of it being pulled from the WordPress page editor.

 

Seems an odd change in section behavior, NOT to show the title of a page. Does this mean I need to write a function to automatically add Page Titles to static pages?

 

Thanks for clarifying

James B I'm also looking for a way to show titles at pages, just from the WP CMS.

Hi,

 

Goto the the PostLoop section settings and underneath Layout & Config, you should see Show page title? and check the box.


Please search our forums, before posting!

Danny its only visible after "Enable Legacy Mode" is enabled, where is stated that it will not be supported in future releases. Or am I wrong?

That's what I've done for now, but am concerned that this is considered the solution.

This has been reported back to core team and it is likely an additional functionality will be available going forward.

I'd like to second the suggestion that the 'Legacy' option of showing your Page titles by default be part of a future release. This seems like a core feature. Thanks.
