show latest blog post on home page

Is there a way to show the latest full blog post on the home page? I don't want to have all the blog posts show up here, just the latest one, and still have a separate blog page. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi,

 

This has been mentioned to our developer, at the moment it is not possible out of the box with DMS. This is because the WP-Content/PostLoop section are used as one, so if you use that section on a page, it will display the pages content, if you use it on a post or archive page such as your blog, it will display either your post or blog.

So the only way to display X number of posts on your static front page is to use a plugin like MiniLoops, then add the shortcode to your front pages content.

 

Another alternative, albeit slightly more advanced would be to use create your own section and use the WordPress loop.


Please search our forums, before posting!

      I'm trying to add a Careers page to a site to display job openings. The plan is to create a Post using a subcategory 'Careers' and then display those on the page. All of the post sections in PL seem to include images and there's no obvious way to remove them or include an excerpt from the post. 
      Any suggestions?

      Hi Pagelines team and wider community,
      I am looking to develop a single post page for my blog. I have read over an old article on the subject, however the link provided on achieving this goal was giving me security warnings. Is there any way I can get round this?
      Secondly, I have had a root around the .zip file provided on my sites backup, however was unable to locate any file in there with the name of Single.php. Does this file exist in the Pagelines theme?
      By the way, this is the unsafe article: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/create-a-custom-page-template/ (Click at your peril).

      Hi,
      How can I remove the "next post" links below each post page?

      Before we had a related post section, but I can't find it among any functions, widgets etc.

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I am having issues with being able to post to my blog with platform 5. Currently when i click publish, it just shows the homepage of MoonBodySoul.com. That is until i open the page editor and change the scope from "All of type: Posts" to "Current Page Only". Then I have to re-insert the menu header as well. This seems like a really dumb process. In past versions of pagelines, I could just post a blog and the menu would be there and there would be no formatting issues. What can I do to fix this?

      How do you move the thumbnail on a blog post?  I need the thumbnails for the blogroll page, but they show up at the top of the actual post page.  Normally, this would be fine, but I've been requested to put it under the blog title.  Any suggestions?
      Thanks.
