I would like to put a pages contact form in a single bits container...

 

I am basically looking for the main article on one side, and the featured image with a contact form under that on the other, I cannot see a way to do it, and wonder if it's possible

thanks again for single bits

antipodes Yes you can! What are you using for a Contact Form? Usually there is a shortcode to use so rather than putting the contact in the post content, you would use either PL Nextbox if you are a club member, or the regular Textbox if not, and put the shortcode there.

 

First bring in a Single Bits Container into the template, then add the section that has 2 columns, size them as you want (comes as 2 equal 6 columns, reduce one before increasing size of other), then bring in a Single Bits Section into a column and select Featured Image, underneath add the PL Nextbox or Textbox and put in shortcode. Then put a Single Bits Section into the other column and select Post Content. You can also add any other DMS Sections that work on single templates like comments, sharebar, etc.

 

Let me know if I can help you further.

 

Best,

 

Ellen

Adding two columns and using a PL Nextbox did the trick, giving the desired result.  I was unsure what else I could add to your container versus the standard canvas.  Can I assume that your single bits container replaces / enhances the normal canvas and I can use it for any pagelines section ?  or is it best to use only when a single bits section will also be used ?

 

thanks

Yes, you can use the Single Bits Container for other sections as long as it's a single template, like single post, post type or page. I made the container so that you can use the featured image as background to say post title and meta, position the contained sections top, middle or bottom of the container and also global text color.

      Help! I urgently need to remove the "This post was last edited..." that is now appearing anywhere that I've used Single Bits for a post. 
      James Giroux kindly provided this reply...but it does nothing. HELP! 
      This is from the Single Bits section by Ellen.  The code to add to the functions.php to remove this is:
      if(class_exists('elsueSingleBitsPlugin')) { $instance = elsueSingleBitsPlugin::this(); remove_filter('the_content', array($instance , 'add_mod_hatom_data'), 5 ); }

      I'm stuck in a loop. We're developing a magazine type format and having been using Single Bits Single Post as the template..fine, no problem. Looks great! 
      But, some of the articles now have either a lot of media, or multi media, so we wanted to set up another template for these posts. But, if I change the media content on one post, it 
      changes it on the others. I've tried setting up Custom Posts, but that removes the post from the wp post "categories" and then deletes the post from something like HoverNews that pulls by category. 
      So how do I have the media change for each post? I've tried setting up a separate template for each of these particular, media specific posts...but that doesn't help either because they are posts, not pages. 
      Can PM you the link as the site is not live yet. Thanks!!

      I want to change the text color of the post title in a specific post - How do I do that through CSS?
       
      I've downloaded a plugin which allows me to add custom CSS in specific posts, but I do not seem to get the selectors right.
       
      I am using the light-bg class on the single-bit container as well, which then includes a single-bit with the post title.

      I am working on a website right now that uses custom tab colors that also match the background color of the tab content area. However, when a tab is open the tab bg color appear slightly different than the bg of the content area. I have double checked all my setting and can't seem to find a way to override this. 
       
      Would a link be helpful so you can see what I am referring to? I will include a screenshot in case that works...
       
      Thank you so much for all your help!
