Best DMS Section for Simple Clean Posts

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

 

My client is asking me to add a new page for 'team news'. I want the client to be able to add a simple wordpress posts which will populate into the news page.The client may also use a featured image of some sort but they will not be using dms themselves. Therefore I was wondering what would be the best DMS section for doing this?

 

There are a few options in Post Layouts and I also have Post Pins. Just wondering what people would recommend for the above please?

 

Thanks,

 

James

HI JamesW

 

Only my opinion, I use "filtering" a Ellen plugin,

http://dms.elsue.com/filtering/

This have many option to change in a simple way and works fine with DMS 2 and she always give a good support.

 

Bur you can use Flipper too.

batman I think he is looking to add content from WP admin and have it feed to a special page, where by all means, he could use Filtering, Masonic, Flipper etc

 

JamesW I think you will find this easiest by using Custom Post Types UI  This post might help you if you are unfamiliar, with Danny's helpful guiding of another member http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/35047-display-single-category-with-images-suggestion/?hl=custom+post+type#entry207528

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!

      Hi,
      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      https://staging4.talltreemusicfestival.com/2017/grand-analog/
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.

      I've created a new post category "Success stories" with Custom Post type UI. (in order to have a different layout for a different post category - blog post one layout, success stories another layout).
      New category "success stories" are "detached" from all the other posts, so they have a different layout, but the problem is that all of the success stories are also having the same exact content.
      So whenever I edit content (e.g. change body text) on one of success story posts, it also changes the content (body text) for all other Success story category posts. 
       
      Question: Is there a way to retain this separate category with it's own layout, and have a different content for each individual post? I'm using Pagelins templates. 
       Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
      Is is possible to have different layouts for different Post categories? We have Blog posts, News posts and Case studies that all are posts, but is it possible to differentiate their layouts?
      So far when I change a post layout it affects all Post type pages. Could it be done somehow with creating a separate template? 
      Examples below

      I'm trying to find a way to display the full content of my posts on my posts page rather than the post excerpt. 
      I've tried using various plugins to create a custom excerpt with no success, so I'm guessing I'll need to make the change to the theme files. That being said I'm not able to find where I would make that change. In the past I've been able to replace <?php the_excerpt(); ?> with <?php the_content(); ?>, but I'm unable to locate this in the framework theme? Am I missing something here?

      Hello
      Anyone know why Posts will not appear on a website?
      We can see them all in the admin console but the website with the page for the posts - https://www.trueblueauctions.com/articles/ shows the titles but when you click on an article they do not appear.  Example: https://www.trueblueauctions.com/phone-call-estate/  Notice the article content is not present.  
      It is this way for all posts on our website.
      Anyone have any ideas of what could be wrong and how to fix it?
      Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
      Wishing you all the best of Providence.
