Can Templates Control Header, Footer, Etc?

Recommended Posts

itarsenal

In Paglines [pre DMS] I could simply toggle off the header, navigation, sidebar, comments, and footer. 

 

I see in DMS 2, this isn't so simple, can't I have a template that has a custom header or footer? It seems like the only thing the templates allow you to customize is the content section, is this true?

 

I have several pages that act as salespages, in which I'd like certain sections I have in my footer not to show, how can I do this easily, across several pages?

Yes, you can hide them. Under the Footer 'Canvas area' > Standard Options > Hide on specific pages or posts? (IDs Comma Separated)

 

A quick way to find page ids etc, use this plugin Reveal IDs


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!

HI, I think this is possible but i have not tried it so i can not be sure.

 

Have you seen this option on all of the sections and areas

I would guess you can hide anything on a page by page basis.

Aires. I have tested it and it works. You will still see the section when editing but with this comment within its field:

 

"Canvas Area/ Highlight etc is hidden or returned no output."

 

Cant see anything that you cant use this control with

 

Also see that the page gives you its ID under that control:

 

"Applicable in global regions. Enter Page IDs (comma separated) to hide this section only on those pages. The ID for this page/post is: 46"

Useful but not very elegant, i have 15 pages to go reconfigure this one, but at least it works. thank you.

The problem is if we implement it so that you can configure Headers and Footers both local and global, it will likely just confuse users. This is why the hide section on pages X is maybe not the most elegant method to use, but it's certainly the simplest to understand.


Please search our forums, before posting!

Yeah, I get that, maybe there will be an innovative solution in the future, but I get it. I was used to just selecting the options in the old Pagelines [not DMS], so that's what I'm relating it to.

In fact, it would be easy to decide if a section or block is visible on all pages or posts, or only on a single post or page, this would be essential to the fano now all the framework evolved, sarbbe good that you added.

If I want to add a section visible on one page, then every time I add a new page I have to add the id to hide it is not practical at all.

      Hi 
      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

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      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!
