Flipper and Posts / Pages Questions

Recommended Posts

JawDesigns

Hello to all,

 

I have a few questions. I am using Flipper for posts. However, I want to have a section that has about 15 recent posts inside aligned vertically and horizontally (see attachment). Is this possible? Flipper just seems to display posts horizontally. An example of what I am trying to achieve is shown in my mockup attachment.

 

I am also quite surprised that DMS does not allow you to have different layouts for posts. For example every post has the same layout and content! Surely other want this fixed as well or are people just using pages like me to get around this problem? My original post can be found here: http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/36080-posts-seem-to-be-duplicated/

 

Thanks,

 

James

Hi James,

 

Flipper has been designed to display your posts in a specific layout and wasn't intended to display posts in multiple columns like your attached image.

If you want to display your posts in that style, you could try Masonic. However, this isn't an issue with DMS, most frameworks display your posts in the standard layout of a blog, as this is how WordPress displays by default. If you want a specific layout, you will need to either create your own section or use a plugin.


Please search our forums, before posting!

To answer your other question you can have different pages for categories (not sure about specific posts but you can experiment). Under Page Setup ->Page Handling change it to 'LOCAL - layout is current page specific' and click update. This allowed me to have different page titles depending on the category selected.

      Hi
      Have researched this in the forum and find a couple ancient posts from 2011 and 2014 apparently for pre-DMS2?
      Am using latest Wordpress  4.8.4 running DMS Version: 2.2.4 theme
      When in the editor (Chrome), the page looks fine, but when logged out and viewing individual posts, they show up twice - one in the column I have setup and a second time at bottom of content page but above footer???
      Each page has 2 columns, left column is biggest and contains wploop/content and comments. wpcontent loop is displaying a second time below both columns but ONLY when not in editor. While in editor, second wp content block does not appear???
      https://cassclayton.com/el-chapultapec/  is a post. You can get to it from NEWS | News/Blog dropdown menu, then choosing a post.
      The 2011, 2014 posts talk about going into Settings and adjusting the excerpts vs full settings, but can't find anywhere to do this in DMS???
      Not sure if this is a new issue or old one i just now noticed.

      Best regards,
      John-eriK

      Hi,
      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      https://staging4.talltreemusicfestival.com/2017/grand-analog/
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.

      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

      I'm trying to find a way to display the full content of my posts on my posts page rather than the post excerpt. 
      I've tried using various plugins to create a custom excerpt with no success, so I'm guessing I'll need to make the change to the theme files. That being said I'm not able to find where I would make that change. In the past I've been able to replace <?php the_excerpt(); ?> with <?php the_content(); ?>, but I'm unable to locate this in the framework theme? Am I missing something here?
