Hi, 

 

I would like to start my page with a wp content/lopp  section. Then add some media boxes and then continue with the wp content/lopp  section. is there a way to do that?

Hi,

 

This just a suggestion but what I would do if I desired such a layout would be to use Advanced custom fields.

 

I would make two new fields both text area with wysiwyg editor.  Then use the shortcode or php method.

 

Then on the page drag a pl next box  followed by 2 media boxes  and finally another plnext box.

 

Then add your shortcode for field one in the top and shortcode for field two in the last plnextbox.

 

 

**Some additional steps which I did not include are required but reading through the ACF docs should  help  Advanced Custom Fields **

      When using the WP Content/Loop component, I want to display the poster's name. Unfortunately, that name is overlapping the date of the post. I do not want to remove this information, I just don't want it to overlap. How can I do that? Please see attached. Notice how the poster's name (located under the Gravatar) overwrites the date of the post.

      Hello everyone,
       
      One question! For WP Content/Loop, Magazine Layout Mode, any way to show more than 3 posts?  I'd actually like to show four summaries.  I don't mind adding some php if that'll do the trick.
       
      Hope to hear from you soon!

      Dear Pageliners, the answer may be very obvious, but is it possible to display a single post in the WP Content/Loop section (or indeed through any other section)? I have a shortcode (to display "Chronos" timeline, a Wordpress port of a JS timeline) that I cannot get to work through the MediaBox. It displays perfectly in a post though. How can I display that specific post within a page? I looked through the documentation but could not find any guidance on Content/Loop at all. Thank you for bearing with me on such a basic matter. Yours faithfully, Jan.

      Hi
       
      The WP Content/Loop doesn't include the ability to have a post / page title without legacy mode. Given that legacy mode is apparently not supported in future releases and therefore to be avoided for sites that you want to last this seems extremely odd. Right now I'm having to use a hack of Wordpress title as short code in the Standard Title field or an additional php in PLNextBox.
       
      Please advise of workaround or put this obviously necessary feature back into the non-leagcy element.

      Three different questions here, the first far more important.
       
      http://rickfrishman.21thirteen.net/category/blog/ and
      http://rickfrishman.21thirteen.net/category/press/
       
      DMS v 2.1.1
      WP 3.9.1
      Active Plugins: DMS Professional Tools, Modal PopUp DMS (not being used currently), PageLines Updater, Sidebar Manager Light, 
      Types - Complete Solution for Custom Fields and Types (can't say I quite understand how to use this and am not currently using it)

      1) The category "/press" was created starting with the default Blog template, with PageHeader, Sidebar and . I added WP Content/Loop. (This is the first time I've tried this in DMS2). I added 2 columns and used two Media Boxes between the PageHeader and the WP Content/Loop.
       
      I then created a second category called Blog. I don't want the two Media Boxes here. No matter what I do, unlock  the template, save as a new template, don't use a template, any change I make to one category page is reflected in the other. I also don't want the PageHeader to say what it does - I just want it to say Press Room, and Blog. I'm afraid, at this point to remove the PageHeader and replace it with a Highlight section. How can you make two different category pages and have different sections on them without having the changes reflected in the other category page.
       
      2) How/where do you upload an image to replace the default "avatar" image for the Author Info for each post?
       
      3) I had an error when doing the update to the uploaded version of DMS. I later tried again and got the version to update (I think! at least it's now telling me that all my thems, plugins and WP versions are up to date but this message: "An automated WordPress update has failed to complete - please attempt the update again now." will not go away!
       
      Thanks in advance for your help.
