Scope is always set to "All of type: Posts"

Hi Everyone,

 

I am having issues with being able to post to my blog with platform 5. Currently when i click publish, it just shows the homepage of MoonBodySoul.com. That is until i open the page editor and change the scope from "All of type: Posts" to "Current Page Only". Then I have to re-insert the menu header as well. This seems like a really dumb process. In past versions of pagelines, I could just post a blog and the menu would be there and there would be no formatting issues. What can I do to fix this?

Hi @BentleyD,

I sounds like you have your menu within the template area I would suggest you add the menu to the header and then go inside the advanced menu options and hide the menu on the home page.

Let me know if this helps.

@Simon @Aires That solves the menu issue, but my real issue is that the blog content won't automatically appear. It only shows the homepage content until  i open the page editor and change the scope from "All of type: Posts" to "Current Page Only". Please help.

I dont suppose you could do a screencast.

Because I dont see any post on your home page so I am not sure what your issue is.

@Aires The issue is that it defaults to the homepage and only displays the image slider and menu. A screencast isn't going to help. Just look at my homepage. Instead of displaying the single blog post, it shows the homepage. That is until I change the scope to "Current Page Only". My question is, Why doesn't it default to "Current Page Only"?

@BentleyD I spun up another local installation of wordpress to try and recreate your issue.

Default settings in wordpress with blog as my home page.

I added an impulse slider with menu and left the static content on the page. And scope is default.

And I cannot reproduce your results.

it defaults to the type always, for all types.

imagine these scenarios: 

You have 1000 posts, you want all the posts to have a slider at the top, if the default scope was current page only for all pages you would have to add that slider to 1000 posts.

@Simon I understand that, but that doesn't really make sense for the individual post page. Are you saying that every time I publish a post to the blog page, I have to open it up individually, then turn on the editor, then navigate to current page only, for the blog post to appear? That makes no sense.

My client needs to be able to post to the blog without editing the design.

I can't figure a good way to do this either.  It seems you either have to use the wordpress content or do the page editor for each blog post.

No, by default because the scope is set to 'all of type' when you create a new post it will have 'all of type' set too and will use the settings for 'all of type' so all posts will be exactly the same layout and your author wont have to change any settings.

If you want one post to be different than all the other pages then you change the scope for that one post.

@Simon Can you please log on to my site and see what I am referencing. I add a new post and it just shows the home page. I don't know how else to say it. On every other website i've designed, I add a new post and it shows a single post page. With this new set up, it shows the home page instead. In Addition: The Http Error has returned when uploading any media at all to the website. Is platform 5 just incredibly buggy? It's unusable.

The http error is not caused by PL5. Most likely some security setting on your server.

@Simon More importantly can you please help me make the blog function correctly. This is incredibly frustrating. It's worked flawlessly the 5 years I've been a pagelines customer.

Hey,

We've got a similar issue with scope. After publishing a post it won't change to the "Current page" just reload the page and be set to "All posts"

Do you have an idea what could be the issue here?

How has this not been solved yet? I'm still over here having to change the post type EVERY TIME I add a new blog post. This is really killing platform 5 for me.

@Andrew Yes, it is happening to all of the posts. The function is sort of "stuck" because when I try to change the "All post type" to the current page it just reloads the page.  And for the posts that I have already "Current page" and I try to change to "All post type" it also just reloads the page without any success.

      I wanted to share something I'm dealing with on my PageLines 5 website. The website is culturedfoodlife.com. I've seen this issue a few times, but it's always fixed itself without me really doing much, so I don't know how to troubleshoot. It'll start out with my page loading all wonky, due to scripts and stylesheets missing. I look at the page source, and towards the top, I see this line:
      <link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//www.group-ib.ru' />
      I have no idea what that website is, or why it's loading that line of code, and then further down, I see it again as the domain that tries to load all of my pagelines section style scripts:
      <link rel='stylesheet' id='pl-pins-css' href='https://www.group-ib.ru/…/plugins/pl-section-pins/style.css…' type='text/css' media='screen' />
      <script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.group-ib.ru/…/pl-sect…/script.infinitescroll.js…'></script>
      <script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.group-ib.ru/…/plugi…/pl-section-pins/isotope.js…'></script>
      <script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.group-ib.ru/wp-conte…/…/pl-section-pins/pins.js…'></script>
      Here's a screenshot: https://www.screencast.com/t/Nqk9YglUf
      So I get that this is why it's not displaying correctly on the front end, because these style scripts don't exist on group-ib.ru, and I have no idea why it's inserting group-ib.ru instead of my domain culturedfoodlife.com.It makes me think I'm being hacked. This seems to be affecting the styles and scripts of pagelines sections. Other plugins on my site load their scripts with the correct domain name.
       
      When I've seen this in the page, it usually fixes itself after a few minutes, but in this last case, it didn't fix itself until I started disabling plugins. I was trying to see if I could go through each plugin one by one to see if I could fine out anything. I disabled everything but all my pagelines plugins/sections, and the issue went away. Then when I re-enabled everything, the issue was still gone. So now I'm clueless as how to keep testing this. Any suggestions?
      The fact that disabling every plugin EXCEPT the pagelines plugins kind of make me think that the issue isn't with pagelines, but then again when the issue occurs, why does it only affect pagelines sections? Andrew Powers I could use some insight. Thanks.

      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

      Hello, I want to create a form where a visitor can submit content/post from the front end. I did something very similar some years back using wp-types, CRED form with pagelines DMS. When i try to set this up in Platform 5, the CRED form generates but doesn't show. I get a blank page. In the browser's console window, i get the error: Uncaught Error: You cannot apply bindings multiple times to the same element.
      When i deactivate the PL plugin and change the theme, the form appears.
      I'm using Wordpress 4.8.2 and PL 5.1.7
      Thanks.

      Hi, I'm using a series of Loops sections on our PL5 site (insights.adaptiva.com), and on one section, I'd ideally like the loops to link to external URLs that are defined in the post in WordPress. Is that possible?
