Blog Categories

I am trying to only have certain categories display in things like the masonic gallery and flipper. I remember there being a drop tab that would allow you to display which category you would like but I cant find that option now. I have not set up a blog since DMS2 was released so could you help me a bit? 

 

http://theamariechassie.com/resources/ is the page i am working on, if you go to the resources page, I would like for that to be the gateway to the blog page. Each of the images is linked to (what I would like to be) its blog category page. For example, when you click on fitness, all the fitness blog posts will pop up.

 

Also, I am trying to upload pinspro.zip to the plugins, is there another way to upload it because it keeps failing?

Hi Mallorie,

 

The Masonic and Flipper sections both contain a Category drop down menu option, where you can select a category. This will then populate that section with posts from only that category.

However, from what you describe above, you're trying to use Flipper or Masonic in a different way, it can not be used to link to specific category pages, it can only be populated by posts from a category, pages or a custom post type. You can not add custom items and then give them custom links to individual categories. To do something like that you will need to use something else.

 

Regarding your issue with uploading pinspro.zip, can you create a new topic for this question, as it has no relation to your first question. Our forum policy is one question per topic, this is for search indexing reasons.

Thanks for the help, 

 

I usually get notified by email when someone responds to my forum questions. I did not for this one, I noticed you guys have been making a lot of changes to the pagelines website (they look great btw) did some of the settings change as well (such as getting email notices)?

No settings have been changed on the forum which is what notifies you when a reply has been made. I have noticed that you're not following the topic, which is as far as I am aware automatically set when a user creates a topic. Did you click to unfollow at any point ?

      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!
