Can't create distinct type of page layout

Recommended Posts

hrachovec

Hello:

 

I'm trying to create a type of page layout and I'm not sure how to go about it. Hopefully you could shed some light on this. 

 

I have a website with a Case Studies section. Example of a Case Study page here:

http://brightldn.com/new/case-studies/dysontest/

 

This is almost exactly what I want but the current problems are:

 

  1. At the bottom the Masonic Gallery shows ALL other pages and posts. I just want it to show other Case Study pages only (i.e., no Blog posts). Should I be setting this Case Study content up as WP Posts instead of WP Pages and then use some sort of category filter in the Masonic Gallery? I tried making a Case Study as a WP Post, but that made my Blog entries change their layouts to look like Case Studies, which I didn't want. 
  2. If I click on another Case Study page (http://brightldn.com/new/case-studies/case-study-3/), the RevSlider at the top is still from the previous Case Study. How do I make a RevSlider unique to a page and not part of an overall template? 

Any help would be welcome, I've been prodding this for hours now. 

 

Cheers, Russell

Hi Russell,

 

1. If you want to display specific pages or posts, you will want to filter the content using the Additional Post Selection options. For instructions on how to use these options to filter what content is shown in Masonic or Flipper sections see my post here - http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/34590-custom-post-types-meta-key-meta-key-value-not-returning/?p=203639

 

2. If you want to have different configured RevSliders on your pages, you will want to create different templates, for each of your pages.

Hi Danny:

 

Thanks, the masonic side of things now works. 

 

However, I am still having issues with the RevSlider. Like you suggested, I made a template called 'Case study: Dyson' for the Dyson page, and another template 'Case study: sunflowers' for the Sunflower page. I've made sure the right template for each was activated and everything was published. However the RevSlider still isn't behaving: the same image and text is displaying on both templates.

 

Is there some other component other than RevSlider that would work better for what I'm trying to achieve?

How did you create the templates ?

 

Did you load the Dyson one on your Sunflower page ? If so, did you unlink it before configuring the template or saving it as a 'Case study: sunflowers'. If you didn't that is your issue there.

 

Here is what should you do.

 

1. Go to your Sunflower page, then load the Dyson template.

2. Once loaded, click the unlink template option.

3. Now that the template is unlink, configure the RevSlider to your liking and any other sections.

4. Save the template and call it 'Case study: sunflowers' or whatever you prefer.

 

The RevSlider should now act differently.

      Hi
      Have researched this in the forum and find a couple ancient posts from 2011 and 2014 apparently for pre-DMS2?
      Am using latest Wordpress  4.8.4 running DMS Version: 2.2.4 theme
      When in the editor (Chrome), the page looks fine, but when logged out and viewing individual posts, they show up twice - one in the column I have setup and a second time at bottom of content page but above footer???
      Each page has 2 columns, left column is biggest and contains wploop/content and comments. wpcontent loop is displaying a second time below both columns but ONLY when not in editor. While in editor, second wp content block does not appear???
      https://cassclayton.com/el-chapultapec/  is a post. You can get to it from NEWS | News/Blog dropdown menu, then choosing a post.
      The 2011, 2014 posts talk about going into Settings and adjusting the excerpts vs full settings, but can't find anywhere to do this in DMS???
      Not sure if this is a new issue or old one i just now noticed.

      Best regards,
      John-eriK

      Hi,
      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      https://staging4.talltreemusicfestival.com/2017/grand-analog/
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.
      -Matt

      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'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.

      Hi,
      Is is possible to have different layouts for different Post categories? We have Blog posts, News posts and Case studies that all are posts, but is it possible to differentiate their layouts?
      So far when I change a post layout it affects all Post type pages. Could it be done somehow with creating a separate template? 
      Examples below
