Powerloop taxonomies revisited

Recommended Posts


It seems to me that Powerloop cannot be used on a category page as by default it shows everything on the blog unless you select a category which then overrides the category page you are on,


Sure its nice to have the option to show a different loop on a category page but surely there should be a way of just showing the posts in the category you are currently in!  i.e. it should be loop aware as indeed your own WP Content / loop is!


Category pages are a powerful part of WP and for an extension to not be aware when it is on a category page and show that content accordingly by default is a backward step. 


Have I totally missed the point here?


Here is an example this is a category page on my site


as you can see from the bread crumb its a category page and WP Content shows the category we are on i.e. Lure Reviews straight out the box. No problem.



Now lets use Powerloop with everything at default




still the same breadcrumb but we have today's post nothing to do with lures.


No problem I hear you say just set the taxonomy to lures and job done, and indeed we get




as you might expect a lure review on a lure category page!


BUT because we have now hard wired it we get a lure review on all category pages!



as you can see the breadcrumb is on Reel reviews but we have Lures.


All of which is as long winded way of saying how do I use Powerloop on category pages?

We have recently released an update to PowerLoop that allows you to use a general query on category pages.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
