Template problem - need blog on home page, right sidebar

Recommended Posts

redstate    0

I'm just trying to set up a standard website with a primary sidebar in the right column and blog on the Homepage beneath a RevSlider, Highlight and ibox. The templates seem to have changed with DMS2. Please tell me how to set this up. On a DMS1 website, I set up a Home page template, inside pages template and 2 others, needing only a little help.


On this DMS2 website, I just want a Home page template and all other pages template. Please tell me how. The website is rockwallrocks.com.

If you want to display your blog on your homepage, then you first need to make sure that you're not using the static pages option via the WordPress Admin Dashboard > Settings > Reading. If you have enabled static pages, then you will not be able to display your blog on your homepage unless you decided to use a third party plugin.


So the first thing you need to do is make sure the static pages option isn't active. Then you simply need to drag and drop the WP-Content/PostLoop section onto your template. Then do the same thing withe Primary sidebar. This really hasn't changed in DMS 2.x, you can achieve the same thing in DMS 1.x and DMS 2.x


I have just viewed your site and it appears that you have already achieved what you wanted, is this the case ?


Also, I am not entirely sure what you mean by this statement "On this DMS2 website, I just want a Home page template and all other pages template" What do you mean by all other pages templates ?

Yes, I have the Homepage set up but I can't figure out how to set up the inside page template ("all other pages"). I want the Default option (in other words, 2 columns set at 8 and 4 with WP Content and Primary sidebar) but I can't seem to set up the two columns section again. It doesn't seem to work the way it did on the Homepage anyway. Sorry. Confused.

The Column sections should work on any template, you drag and drop them into position, configure their width by increasing/decreasing and then add your sections. If this isn't working, can you disable all active plugins, then see if this resolves your issue.

If it doesn't, would it be possible for you to record the issue using either QuickCast or Jing, then provide a link to the recoding so we can see the problem first hand.

        First of all, sorry for my bad English.  I am developing an ecommeece with wp, woocommerce, PL5 and quickshop, and I need to do some changes in the simple product grid. I want to change the classes of some divs, but I can't find the templates. 
      Also, I change the grid of the category products pages, but I didn't make it correctly.

      I have to say that I like the Layout and the Template based sections. Some of them are really impressive.
      One of the things that I would like to request though is the possibility of being able to dynamically rearrange the layout.
      An example of what I am talking about is take the Agency Section. It's current layout starts with the
      Splash Module then the Portfolio Module then the Service Module and so on and so forth.
      What would be great is if we were able to move these modules around. I.e have the Service Module first
      then maybe the Splash, and then the portfolio.

      I am using Jigoshop on a website that also uses PL5 and am running into an issue where the store pages do not allow me to use the PL5 editor. Is anyone else having this problem or know if a solution? 
      When I open the Chrome console I see the following error:
      site.js?ver=b199df:5 Uncaught ReferenceError: PLData is not defined
          at Object.setMasterModel (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at Object.init (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at HTMLDocument.<anonymous> (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at i (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Object.fireWith [as resolveWith] (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Function.ready (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at HTMLDocument.K (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
      The problem can be seen here: http://fingerlakesdistilling.com/shop/ where the sidebar, footer, and header do not show up. Any thoughts?
      Thanks so much!

      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.
