Hi.

This might be a stupid question, but how do i display the last X posts on the home page.

I want a thumbnail, the headline and an excerpt.

 

How do i do this in DMS?

Enable legacy mode for WP content/loop. > Layout &Config

> Post Layout > List layout Mode 

> Thumbs > FullWidth Thumbs layout > Left justified

> Thumbs > Clip Thumbs layout > Left justified


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!

GetMeWebDesign, thanks for the above - i have that for the blog page, but how do i get that for the 5 recent posts added so i can place it on the home page?

Is there a function for that in DMS2 or do i have to go outside and look at "Special recent posts" etc?

 

I have used SRP on a previous site and works well - i just wanted to see if DMS had it built in.

 

Thank you.

Sorry I didnt quite realise that was your question. SRP is excellent and is what you need.

      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!
