Sitemap Footer section - how get "recent Posts" and "Comments"?

Recommended Posts

Hello

Am upgrading a site made in DMS2 to Pl5. Have run into several snags I didn't anticipate from DMS sections the client liked and was used to in DMS not being available in Pl5.

Currently trying to recreate the "Columnizer" I used for the footer in cassClayton.com. Using the "sitemap footer" section, however that gives options for 3 menus plus a text ares (plus some socials and copyright text). Well I need the second 2 columns to NOT be menus, but rather the latest Posts and Comments.

Will appreciate some leads how to make this happen. Perhaps there is a different footer section that's ideal for this? Or should I simply drag a couple Container sections and Text sections to do this?  Also, kindly point me to a reference for shortcodes for "recent posts" and "comments".

Also, I loved the "RapidTabs" section for sidebars. Is there a replacement for that? Again, I need to find shortcodes for posts/comments, so any leads are much appreciated.

thanks

How about putting side bar widget section on bottom but leave it wide. Put a custom menu widget, a recent post widget, and a comments widget. Not use the sitemap footer. 

Rapid tabs were pretty cool.

Your site is looking good.

Aires has a good business footer section on his iHEARTPagelines site. I like it much better that the Sitemap Footer. I have one I made called Bigfoot but I do not sell my plugins. I make custom ones as I need but really do not want to deal with updating them and supporting them for other folks.

      I uninstalled the sitemap footer section trying to reinstall.
      Now it is telling me I need to upgrade. See attached image. But it does not do anything. It is saying to upgrade to 5.03
      When I click the button, I get a reply saying all plugins are up-to-date.

      I refreshed my account. Still no install.

      Is there a way to add the social link icons and links to it on the right side - I did this successful on the sitemap footer but don't know how to implement it into the MegaNav section. Agency Section-Splash Module
      How to I get the photo to display full screen in mobile/cellphone view - it is completely cut off. I put in an Image section just to try it out and it scales down perfectly. How do I do this with the Splash Module. Also the text over the photo does not completely fit on the cellphone screen. Is there a less/css I can use to get all the text to fit? I'm testing this on a rather large Samsung 6 Edge Plus screen. Sitemap Footer
      There are three menus but I only want one. Removing the menu titles does not get rid of the menus and "none" is not an option on the drop down menu. How do I eliminate these two extra menus? Thank you for your assistance. I am most grateful.

      Hi-
       
      In my footer, I have a columnizer set up with a widgetizer in it.  The widgetized area contains one widget with two custom menus.  Everything works great except for the gray line under each menu item that spans the width of the set column (currently set at grid column for each widget-6).  The gray line also shows up under the images in my flipper box (under Flipper Meta, I have the code- -to remove the dates;  I also have a shortcode to remove the karma sitewide).  Is there someway to get rid of the gray lines?
       
      Thanks so much and have a great day.
