Flipper Post Navigation

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to move the navigation on Flipper below the image post area?  I considered just suppressing the navigation all together but I need to have access to four images not one.I really need to figure something out. The speck from the designer/client was to have navigation on the images but I don't see that as a possibility. 

 

I also realize that this is not really very likely to do. If anyone has any thoughts on how else to navigate that would be useful too. I have been looking at this and reading posts about Flipper and I just have it close enough to be willing to just ask and see what happens...as I continue to work this one out. My goal is to get the image (at  a decent size and the excerpt into the initial view for the users...

 

The site is http://nela-pow.org/

 

Thanks!

Hi @nadielp 

 

Flipper basically doesn't do this at the moment and there are no options for this, i will move this topic to ideas & Feedback so the Developer can see this suggested change. 

 

On the other hand, you say you have nearly got close. How have you attempted to do this and what success have you had?

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.

I meant that I have flipper nearly where I need it for the rest of my spec...so I had several issues to address the navigation being one of them. 

The problem for me is that none of the sections will do what I need for this area. The sliders don't and none of the post loop displays do either. I am really struggling with this aspect of the site.

If I were in charge of the design I would live with the navigation at the top but the designer on this is being stubborn. If you have any suggestions on which section would pull a few posts with on-image navigation to the other posts

I would happily work at shaping that for the site. I have done a lot of looking and I haven't seen much...

 

Thanks!

You could take the section and rewrite it so it displays differently you would of course not be able to get support with this change and make sure you do not alter the original files and add the changes to the files in your child theme. Knowledge of PHP should allow you to do this. 

 

What are the issues with the sliders and post loop?

Thanks for taking the time with this Martin. I will add that although I have worked in IT for many, many years I do not have the same skills with Wordpress or WebDesign so if I sound green here it is because I am.

I need to pull the featured image and the excerpt into whatever display section I incorporate. That said, rev slider does not pull info and neither does the quickslider (my initial hope was to use one of those). The designer/owner of the site is specific about not wanting to post things in repetition. I have then played with Flipper since I could use it to show case images. If one of the sliders could pull posts I'd be good but they don't. If I am missing how to use another section to achieve this please let me know...I have looked at all of them in some regard or another but I am not seeing how I can get this all in a section that is in the list or for sale...

 

Once again thanks for your time. I really do appreciate it.

Hi there,

 

There's a third party section on the PageLines store which sounds close to what you described. Check out - http://www.pagelines.com/shop/sections/latest-blog-entries/ there's a demo which you can see all the different display formats.

 

Instead of Rev slider you could use http://www.pagelines.com/shop/sections/post-slider/


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.

Thanks James, I looked at post-slider and had considered it as a solution. I had run across an issue with regard to the site but that was before I hit the larger issue with Flipper. I like the latest blog entries. I need to give it a bit closer of a look. Not sure how I missed this one. Thank you so much for pointing it out.

      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

      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!
