WP Content/Loop WP Content/Loop for Two Different Categories; Avatar Image, Updating.

6 posts in this topic

Three different questions here, the first far more important.


http://rickfrishman.21thirteen.net/category/blog/ and



DMS v 2.1.1
WP 3.9.1

Active Plugins: DMS Professional Tools, Modal PopUp DMS (not being used currently), PageLines Updater, Sidebar Manager Light, 

Types - Complete Solution for Custom Fields and Types (can't say I quite understand how to use this and am not currently using it)


Godaddy Linux w/ Cpanel


1) The category "/press" was created starting with the default Blog template, with PageHeader, Sidebar and . I added WP Content/Loop. (This is the first time I've tried this in DMS2). I added 2 columns and used two Media Boxes between the PageHeader and the WP Content/Loop.


I then created a second category called Blog. I don't want the two Media Boxes here. No matter what I do, unlock  the template, save as a new template, don't use a template, any change I make to one category page is reflected in the other. I also don't want the PageHeader to say what it does - I just want it to say Press Room, and Blog. I'm afraid, at this point to remove the PageHeader and replace it with a Highlight section. How can you make two different category pages and have different sections on them without having the changes reflected in the other category page.


2) How/where do you upload an image to replace the default "avatar" image for the Author Info for each post?


3) I had an error when doing the update to the uploaded version of DMS. I later tried again and got the version to update (I think! at least it's now telling me that all my thems, plugins and WP versions are up to date but this message: "An automated WordPress update has failed to complete - please attempt the update again now." will not go away!


Thanks in advance for your help.

1) go to the category page you want to change (front end), in the DMS options, go to Page Setup, then click on the Page Handling tab, then change it from Type to Local. Save, and then you should be able to make changes to just that page without it affecting your other category pages.


2) options are under wp-admin -> Settings -> Discussion. scroll down to "Avatars."


3) dunno.

MrFent - I'm sorry I never got back to you on this - the project got delayed by the client and is now revived and completed. Just wanted to say thank you for the information, it worked, and it cleared up a confusion I had on the use of DMS.

MrFent - Thanks for helping!


21thirteen - In regards to number three, that is related to WordPress and/or your host. Therefore, you will need to ask this question to both the WordPress support forum and your web host provider.

    • Pagelines crashed, how do I update?
      By David Lamoureux+
      Here's the site, but that's not what it's suppose to look like. I tried to log in but the theme was crashed. I then went into the DB and changed the theme to WP 2013. I assume that by updating the pagelines theme all will be well again. I've downloaded DMS 2.2, but I don't know how to install that. Please help. I need to communicate with the 100's of people who've signed up in the last week. Thanks.

    • Custom design for different category pages
      By mzhafzah
      I am using DMS 2 theme and I want to create a 2 different links on my website; each link should take you to a different blog post category. Although the process is easy, yet I can not figure out how to give each category page a unique design of its own; Any change I make on any page is applied to the other (I'm aware of the universal elements like the header and footer and I a am not talking about these.)
      Since I am new to wordpress in general, I am not sure if my description is sufficient; apologies if it is not.
