iBlogPro6 flipper how to limit type of posts to display in flipper by category

Recommended Posts

margie

I have added the section, "Flipper (Full)" to my homepage.  I vaguely understand that the posts I write in the WP dashboard show up in my Flipper.  I have images in the featured image section of each post. The Flipper is configured as follows:

 

CONFIG

Which post type should Flipper use?  Posts

Layout Format: Image only

Max Number of Posts Shown: 3

Select Thumb Size: large

Total Posts Loaded: 5

Hide Nav? Checked

 

Nothing selected in the remaining CONFIG boxes

 

FLIPPER CONTENT

Flipper Title Text: technologies

Hide Title Link? Checked

Flipper Meta: blank

Show excerpt? unchecked

Disable social buttons: checked

 

BACKGROUND OPTIONS

Background Image: blank

Repeat background: unchecked

 

Nothing selected in remaining BACKGROUND OPTIONS boxes

 

How do I set my Flipper box up to only display certain category posts?

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

Are you saying you only want to show specific posts or posts from a specific category ?

Posts from a specific category...for instance, right now, i have posts with the "materials" category and posts with a "technologies" category.  How do I display just the posts from the "materials" category using the Flipper?

 

Thanks for your help:-)

If you select the Posts type from the Which post type should Flipper use? option and refresh a new drop down option will appear where you can choose which category you would like to use.

      Hello,
      We are working on a 2 languages site (https://liguecardioliga.be) with wpml, and lately the call of a category in the loops section (and all the sections requiring a category to select posts) doesn't work in the translated language. It worked well until recently so I wonder if it's because of a recent update (wordpress, wpml, pagelines, a plugin?). Anyone has the same problem? a solution?
      TIA

      Hello
      I am using DMS 2 theme and I want to create a 2 different links on my website; each link should take you to a different blog post category. Although the process is easy, yet I can not figure out how to give each category page a unique design of its own; Any change I make on any page is applied to the other (I'm aware of the universal elements like the header and footer and I a am not talking about these.)
      Since I am new to wordpress in general, I am not sure if my description is sufficient; apologies if it is not.

      Hello,
       
      My blog has two separate types of post content, both of which need to be created as posts, not pages, in WP.
       
      On the category pages, Bespoke pulls the featured image and the 10 word excerpt (or whatever is provided for in the excerpts post field).  How can I get certain categories to show the full content of a post and others this standard format with the "read more" button?
       
      Question 2 - Is it possible to have different templates for different category listing pages?  Example, use the postloop for one category and the masonic gallery for another?
       
      Thank you in advance for your help!

      Hi--
      I was wondering if there was a relatively easy to way automatically assign a thumbnail to a post category when displaying posts in the Masonic Gallery format, when the post doesn't have a featured image? I've got a client with a ton of posts that just won't have any featured images, but each category has a header image. I'd like to display the header image as the thumbnail for all these posts, since, going forward, my client does actually plan to use featured images.
       
      Thanks!

      I'm having difficulty getting a list of posts on a landing page.  I would like to achieve something like the Posts widget, but I need to be able to specify categories, include excerpts, and display the post dates.  I've tried using the Column section and adding the [display-posts] shortcode, but this shortcode doesn't get processed.  Only the shortcode text shows up.  Am I missing something?
       
      Thanks.
