Keeping READ MORE lined up in powerloop

Recommended Posts

ade55

In multi column layout sometimes my extract take up differing numbers of lines of text. When this happens my READ MORE's are not vertically in line, I've tried various CSS tweaks but they all break down at difference screen widths as the depth of text increases as the columns narrow!

 

Thanks

Can you take a screenshot of your PowerLoop section settings please, so I can see what you have at the moment.

Okay, so I wasn't quite clear with your issue. However, if your excerpts aren't the same length then your Read More buttons will not be aligned with each other. Therefore, to resolve your issue, you will want to set your excerpt to a much smaller length.

setting the excerpt to a number of words does not Guarantee that it will take up the same space.

Well it does in some fashion. If you set your excerpt to something that is very short i.e. 5 words it is very unlikely that your excerpts will run over more than one line.

If you do not wish to make this change, there is no other way to align them without using custom CSS and settings a height to the excerpt div. You can try this yourself using Chromes dev tools.

      I am using the Powerloop plug-in on my DMS website and can sort my elements by Postdate, but I want to sort the pages in Alphabetic order.
      Actually the same question for sorting Flipper content in Alphabetic order instead of Ascending / Descending / Random options.

      Hi there, 
      I'm looking to use the Powerloop option to display my blog posts on our homepage – however, I only want the title (in a smaller font size) and the Read More button to display. Is there a way to do this? We had achieved it on a previous version, but I'm not figuring it out now (and don't know if standard settings have changed since then). Our homepage is www.frakture.com . Forgive me if there is a super simple solution! ;-) 
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello,
      I'm having trouble getting my Powerloop layout the way that I want...
      I'd like to have the same layout as the question below but instead of an image I'm using video.
      I have my media shortcode above everything but the title is still above it in my page and when I inspect it.
      My settings:
      [powerloop_media]  
      [powerloop_title class="plHtxt" align="center"] 
      [powerloop_content class="plHContent" align="left"]
      [powerloop_author class="plHauthor" align="left"] | [powerloop_date format="F j, Y"]
      Another problem I am having is that I cant create space between the video and the content..If i add padding or an margin to my content class it adds that spacing to the video as well.
      Any ideas on how I can fix this?

      Hi there, does PowerLoop work with the pagelines page / post pagination section?
      All I want to display a grid of 2 columns of posts using PowerLoop and add in pagination after say 10 posts - is this possible?  I've added the page/ posts pagination section and it says 'returned no output'. As a test Powerloop is set to show 3 posts - which it does but there are no page links to see the remaining posts - there are several more than 3.
      Many thanks in advance.
