Am upgrading a site made in DMS2 to Pl5. Have run into several snags I didn't anticipate from DMS sections the client liked and was used to in DMS not being available in Pl5.
Currently trying to recreate the "Columnizer" I used for the footer in cassClayton.com. Using the "sitemap footer" section, however that gives options for 3 menus plus a text ares (plus some socials and copyright text). Well I need the second 2 columns to NOT be menus, but rather the latest Posts and Comments.
Will appreciate some leads how to make this happen. Perhaps there is a different footer section that's ideal for this? Or should I simply drag a couple Container sections and Text sections to do this? Also, kindly point me to a reference for shortcodes for "recent posts" and "comments".
Also, I loved the "RapidTabs" section for sidebars. Is there a replacement for that? Again, I need to find shortcodes for posts/comments, so any leads are much appreciated.
Oh, you can check out the new (PL5 version) of the site underdevelopment at https://cassclayton.com/upgrade/
I'm trying to remove RapidTabs from my Sidebar. I've removed it from the my Primary Sidebar under Widgets, and also from the main page sidebar but it seems to appear in every single post. Isn't there a way to just remove it from all sidebars in all posts?
Do you know if it's possible to hide the tags in rapidtabs ?
I've finally dug into my pocket to buy WPML and switch away from the free Polylang.
Things mostly works but I'm running into a few problems. It is regarding the site www.janpeeters.nl I'm on latest DMS and pro plugin.
The flipper on the frontpage shows posts from both languages EN and NL (if you flip through it). I've already tried to activate 'Make themes work multilingual' in WPML but that didn't change a thing. All posts are properly tagged with the right language. And posts that are available in both languages are linked together. The behaviour that I'd expected is that posts get filtered by language.
With the .po file that I downloaded from Transifex I've been able to properly get words like 'Recent', 'Comments' etc translated to Dutch, but also here the posts are not filtered by language.
Thanks for some wisdom ;-)
As a follow up to this comment thread, I'd like to suggest an enhancement to RapidTabs Popular tab. Currently, Popular is calculated using Comment count. And it seems to be using total comment count since the beginning of time. It would be very nice to have two options added:
Choose Page Views or Comments as the metric Add a function to choose recency, e.g., Yesterday, Last Week, All Time ... or ... [#] Days
