Setting Post Categories for Flexible Posts

Recommended Posts

ariel100

Hiya,

I'm new to WHP6, just got.  Attempting to play with it and ran through the docs and all the guides I could find and hoping could get your help -

 

In using the Flexible Posts, section,  I tried to split it into 2 side by side,  in so doing I wanted to restrict left side to posts from Category X  and right side to posts from Category Y.   The edit section lists  'Post Category' that made me think I could do so.  The only options I get though are category, post_tag, post_format  ..  I can't seem to set the specific category here.  Setting it to 'category' doesnt seem to accomplish anything with the posts that are selected / displayed. 

 

Can you advise as to how this is best accomplished?  Or if there are documentation support for the sepcific sections that may indicate?

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

 

Unfortunately, the option Post Category doesn't mean you can select a specific category, it just means it will displays posts using categories as the taxonomy. Therefore, if you want to display only specific posts from specific categories, you will want to use the Meta options instead.

See this post for an explanation on how to use those options - http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/34590-custom-post-types-meta-key-meta-key-value-not-returning/?p=203639

      Hi,
      Previous webmaster has made short codes assigned to certain categories. For example: [pl_section section="loops" id="003"]  displays all the Job posts for tech. 
      But where can I assign a short code for a certain category? I can't find where to add the loop ID for the category.
       
      Thank you

      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

      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.

      Hi,
       
      I have tried modifying the slider using CSS but so far have a hard time doing so.
       
      Is there a quick css property that I can modify to increase and decrease the default height?
       
      Thanks,
      Jorge
