Is it possible to use PageLines sections programmatically?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I'm an experienced PHP Developer, but quite new to the PageLines framework. I'm wondering if there's any way to configure and render a PageLines section purely from within template code - that is, without requiring the use of the DMS editor.

 

For a concrete example, I'd like to be able to initialise, configure and render an iTabs section (from the iBlogPro theme) along these lines:

<?php
  $tabs = new iTabs(array(
    'tabs_array' => array(
      'item1' => array(...),
      'item2' => array(...),
      'item3' => array(...),
    );

  $tabs->section_template();

Is this possible? Should I be taking a different approach? Thanks!

Hi Gavin,

 

To be honest, I don't have a clue PHP isn't my forte at this moment in time. Therefore, I have PM'd one of our developers, as soon as he gets back to me, I will reply here informing you of his response.

Hi Danny, any update on this? Would be very helpful to know for a project I'm currently working on.

OK, a quick update for you Gavin. One of our developers tried this and informed me of the following:

 

"I experimented with this, the problem is you cant use the settings. so to use them with PHP, you would have to generate your own settings before you initiated the section class, very complicated."

 

So thats all I can say, if Simon says it's complicated, then to the average person this would be rocket science.

      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!
