Single Bits and extra images

I am wondering about the best way to display a secondary image...

 

Oh and it would be really nice if it appeared in one of the pull downs in the same way additional authors do (with an extra plugin required)

 

There was an earlier reference to some how to more howto video or docs, anything you have would be appreciated... I did find 4 vids on youtube.... I am thinking that a combination of some example CPTs, perhaps exported using the TYPES plugin with some screen shots could clarify things a lot. 

 

thanks in advance

antipodes If you are using Types for the extra images, you can get the shortcode for that field and then put it into PLNextbox section (in your PageLines account).

 

Here is a quick screencast with a single image field and a multiple image field (repeatable).  http://recordit.co/pZQ7e4kxvc

 

Take a look and see if that clarifies things. I'll work on a better screencast snd directions. I would love to be able to have Single Bits pick up the custom fields for a post type but first you need to have a post using all the fields related to post filled in, otherwise it won't see the fields. Something to figure out in the future for sure.

 

Best,

Thanks Ellen, I have used the PLNext Box before, I neglected to mention that, but the screencast clarifies things a lot, the only thing missing is an export from Types - do you mind supplying that ? ....as I need to guess about a lot of the fields you used.

 

anyway thanks once again for a great single bit of software

 

cheers

antipodes Sure, here is the zip file to import through Types --> Import/Export --> Import Types Data File (upload zip). There are 2 additional fields, one called Single Image which only allows one image uploaded and the second field is called Multiple Images because you can add more than one image (repeating field).

 

Also, Types has great documentation on creating custom field groups here, http://wp-types.com/documentation/user-guides/using-custom-fields/. Don't worry about displaying because you are doing that with shortcodes in the PL Nextbox section walking through the screencast I did.

 

Let me know if you need anymore help.

 

Best,

      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!
