Adding Flyp to another page (template)

Recommended Posts

I've been working with Flyp for about a week and after finally getting a page completed, I've run into a couple of road blocks. I have a page utilizing Flyp and when I go to add it to another page, any change affects the original page. In this particular situation, I have 35 "Flyps" but I only need 10 on the other page. I've saved the page with 35 Flyps to as a template and loaded the second page with the template. When I begin to delete Flyps from the second page, it changed the original page as well. Can I not have more than one page on my site utilizing the Flyp section? If so, what am I doing wrong?

thebrasseffect, thank you for your purchase.

 

It sounds like you're misunderstanding the DMS 2 template system.

 

Excerpt from my blog post at http://www.pagelinestheme.com/10-dms-2-release-highlights/ :

However, you’ll need to understand that everything is the same across a template, including each section’s options. Templates (and all their settings) are global. If you want to change a section’s options for a single page(s), you’ll need to unlink from the template (easy), and if you want you can save it as a new template and apply that (again, easy).

 

Not only is the section part of the template, but all of its content is sync'd across templates.

 

It sounds like you're wanting to use Flyp for displaying FAQs or something like that, which is great. I'm always interested in hearing how people are using my products. However, it sounds like you're wanting a central area to manage all the FAQs and only display some of them (i.e. categories of FAQs) on each page. Unfortunately, that's not how the DMS Editor works, which is what Flyp uses for content.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can help with. For now, I'm marking the issue resolved.

 

Thank you again for your purchase.

      Hello,
      We are working on finishing up our development website here - http://www.conventionsetc.info/index/
      Instead of having all of the Flyp cards on the home page, we are splitting them up, 16 on the home page, 14 on the new page called "More Celebrities".
      Below is a sample of the CSS that you helped us with back over the summer - this works perfectly on the home page.
      .flypcard1 .flyp_front { background: url('http://www.conventionsetc.info/index/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/john-noble-275.jpg'); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: top center; background-size: contain; }
      .flypcard2 .flyp_front { background: url('http://www.conventionsetc.info/index/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/KSENIA-SOLO-275.jpg'); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: top center; background-size: contain; }
      .flypcard3 .flyp_front { background: url('http://www.conventionsetc.info/index/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/RACHEL-SKARSTEN-275.jpg'); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: top center; background-size: contain; }
      However, when we try to change the photos on the new "More Celebrities" page, it's still pulling the same images from the CSS on the home page.
      So, we need to know how to set the Flyp cards CSS for the new "More Celebrities" page so we can load up different images there specific to that page.
      I hope this all makes sense.
      Thank you for your help!

      Hi Cliff,
      I love Flyp. Thanks for creating it.
      I am curious if there would be a way to set opacity for the background on Flyp. It would be of use to me on a site I am working on.
      Thanks,
      Daniel

      Hi,
      We are developing a new website with Flyp on the home page and we are running into some issues with the images.
      Images are getting cut off when the screen size changes and are not displaying consistently between Chrome and Firefox all the time.
      We've tried viewing this while logged in and also logged out of WP admin - here is a brief demo clip, we get iframe-like scroll bars instead of the images/grid responsively adjusting -
      http://www.conventionsetc.info/flyp.mp4
      You can see the page in action live here -

      Not sure what to do - need your help.
      Thank you!

      Hi Clifford, 
      I just bought your Flyp app but am having some trouble making it look good. Can you please explain to me how I would go about adding images to each box that take up the entire box all together rather than just being placed in the middle of it? I'm trying to make a sort of collage and am not too familiar with HTML you suggested someone review in a previous question. 
       
      Thanks!
      Jason
