DMS2: Changing Content/Post Loop arrangement/look and feel

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

which file do I have to edit to change the look and feel of the core Content/Post Loop? Is there any template file, which I  can edit, but did not find in the filesystem? I don't want to use css, as I really have to move things (like putting the authors name below the thumb nail/featured image) . 

 

If there is already a forum topic here which I did not find, I would also be glad to read this link ;o)

 

Best,

Roman

Hi there,

 

Unfortunately we don't advise editing of core files at all, as the changes you make will be wiped each time you update the theme. If you're looking to make changes to a core section like the post loop we then you might want to look into using WP action hooks or filters - http://docs.pagelines.com/advanced/hooks


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 think I only need the settings from the "old" pagelines theme where you can set the position of the featured image in the post excerpts: Pagelines Menu -> Site Options -> Blog and Posts -> Feature Post Excerpt Menu 

 

Where can I find this settings in DMS2?

 

Best,

Roman

Hi Roman,

 

You're free to edit the core files. However, as James mentioned, it is not recommended nor something we provide support for. Therefore, I think the best course of action would be for you to create your own postloop section.

So there is no option in DMS2 to set the featured image as is was in the "older" pageline themes?

Thanks, I didn't use this option because I use DMS2. I will give it a try :o)

thank you for letting us know. :) 


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.

It works :) But I still do not get the point why these settings are marked as "< 1.2" and hidden behind a checkbox. I find them very useful as they open me the possibility to two nice post arrangement forms :)

 

Thanks,
Roman

As far as I am aware, in the near future the PostLoop section is going to be given a make over with some awesome new features for club only members. However, I am not certain on this, so please do not take it as gospel.

Thanks Danny - this has solved my issue with the blog interface.

 

I do still need to find out how to remove the meta bar under the blog post title completely if i want to.

Is this an option?

 

Thanks.

quintinm add &nbsp to Configure Full Width Post Metabar  and Configure Clip Metabar is the easiest method.

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!
