DMS2 support for Link Post Format

Recommended Posts


I saw that DMS2 suppports Post Formats now. However, I'm not seeing that it supports the Link format. Is that the case? If it doesn't support that particular format, does anyone know how I might add that support. I would like to be able to add a title and a link, set the post format to "Link" and then have that title URL go to the external page instead of the internal post.


sort of like what is described in the wordpress codex: 

  • link - A link to another site. Themes may wish to use the first <a href=””> tag in the post content as the external link for that post. An alternative approach could be if the post consists only of a URL, then that will be the URL and the title (post_title) will be the name attached to the anchor for it.

I presume you mean that you want to have a link on you latest post page looking like the one on the DMS blog: PageLines DMS is changing the way people built websites.


In your Wordpress CMS, just choose the format and enter your URL in the "link settings" below the post content area

This will result in this appearing wherever you display your latest posts and will open the link...

Chrome Developer tools - please use them. If you are not sure how, then it is easy to learn

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!

Thanks GetMeWebDesign after a bit more playing around I discovered that my problem was that I had switch back to the Legacy Mode for the post loop (per just about everyone here at Pageline's suggestion) so I wasn't seeing that new formatting because the legacy mode doesn't support what you showed.


So now I'm stuck between wanting the ability to configure my post loop display with any reasonable amount of flexibility or having the new post format support.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
