Hello!

I have two questions

1. I have all latest versions of WP and Atahualpa. And in one of the latest versions you added Juggledad's multi column/custom query. I'm not sure if im right but this should make it possible to have multiple columns on pages and posts-pages right?. If so could someone explain how to make make a two or three column page of this page http://wesleydeboer.com/schoolwork/. I just can't figure out how to do it.


2. In the header of the pages I've put my social media buttons. I used the overlay header function but i'm not able to click them. When you click you go to home. Only when I put "clickable header" on no they work. Is there a possibility to have them both work?

Thanks for you help

Wesley

If you use this template, think about donating to me. I spent many long hours figuring out how to do this, testing an debugging it. Sending me a donation will encourage me to continue to support this template and Atahualpa.

You can use the 'Donate to Juggledad' button on the donate page
This PAGE template will allow you to use one template on any number of pages and have different options per page. It is a combination of a custom query and multi-column template (variable columns per page).

* you can code a custom query...or not
* you can choose to display the page TITLE...or not
* you can choose to display the page TEXT...or not
* you can define multiple columns...as many as you want, 1 to n (but any more that 5 or 6 makes them very narrow (with CSS you can define how wide each column should be)
* you can display x posts above the column

And the settings are unique to each page you use the template on.

============
INSTALLATION
============

This template currently (as of version 3.7.5) is included with the theme
1) download the attached file and unzip it.
2) upload it to your Atahualpa folder
3) edit a page in the backend and select the template 'JUGGLEDAD's Multi Column/Custom Query'

============
USAGE
============
If you wish to have multiple columns, add a custom field called 'number_of_columns' and put a number in the value field.

If you wish to have a post (or 3 or 10) above the columns, add a custom field called 'posts_above_the_column' and put a number in the value field.

If you wish to have show the page 'title', add a custom field called 'show_page_title' and put 'yes' or 'no' in the value field

If you wish to have show the page 'text', add a custom field called 'show_page_text' and put 'yes' or 'no' in the value field

If you wish to have custom query, add a custom field called 'custom_query' and put a custom query in the value field.

to craft a query, go to http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_...ce/query_posts
to see the variations you can code. You use what is inside the quotes. For example, if you see
query_posts('cat=2,6,17,38');
you would only enter
cat=2,6,17,38
into the custom field.

Here are some sample queries:
category_name=Direction
category_name='Staff House'
tag=animal
post_status=publish&posts_per_page=10
post_status=draft
post_type='movie' (yes you can use custom post types)
post_type='page' (you can have a page of 'pages')

====================
controlling the column widths
====================
You can easily control how wide the post columns will be by adding a couple selectors and rules to the 'CSS Inserts' option. By adding the 'body.page-id-nnnn' to the CSS Selector, you can customize the width per page. For example: Here is what might add for a three column page and a four column page

body.page-id-1493 .mccq_column1 {width: 33%;}
body.page-id-1493 .mccq_column2 {width: 33%;}
body.page-id-1493 .mccq_column3 {width: 33%;}

body.page-id-2367 .mccq_column1 {width: 20%;}
body.page-id-2367 .mccq_column2 {width: 20%;}
body.page-id-2367 .mccq_column3 {width: 10%;}
body.page-id-2367 .mccq_column4 {width: 50%;}

you may need to add some CSS to increase the z-index

Hello!

I have a few of questions and donated for the help.

1. On http://crateov.com/podcasts/ I am trying to show only one category on the page. I read through how to put certain categories and I think I am confused. For the "custom query" I did this:

// -------------------------------------------------------------------------
// get the custom query
// -------------------------------------------------------------------------
$my_custom_field = $custom_fields['cat=11'];
if (is_array($my_custom_field)) {
foreach ( $my_custom_field as $key => $value ) {
if ($key == 'cat=11') {$mccq_args= $value;}
}
}


I changed the custom_query into 'cat=11' and Don't know if that's how to change 'custom_query' into a certain category but it didn't help. It still post all the categories.

2. How do I change to the page theme into a "Multi Post Pages" because it's using the POST/PAGE INFO ITEMS of my "Homepage" instead of the "Multi Post Pages". The Kicker is different between my Homepage and Multi Post Pages and this would help me design the site to fit the theme.

3. How do you remove the excerpts from the post.

4. also, I am having trouble adjusting the post column sizes for http://crateov.com/podcasts/. I used this:

body.page-id-0228 .mccq_column1 {width: 320px;}
body.page-id-0228 .mccq_column2 {width: 320px;}
body.page-id-0228 .mccq_column3 {width: 320px;}

on CSS insert, but it doesn't look even.

you don't touch the template
go back and read post 2 of this thread

you don't it is a 'page' page

you can add another custom filed 'number_of_full_posts' and set the value to 99999 - but if you have a log post and then a short post they won't look good together.

your page id is incorrect - take a look at the <body...> statement in the source to see what it should be

Also you have a table that is in the source before the <body...> statement. You probally put it in the wrong option in the 'Add HTML/CSS Inserts' option.

Thanks for the reply Juggledad, still confused about certain things:

I read through it again and still confused on what to do with:

"If you wish to have custom query, add a custom field called 'custom_query' and put a custom query in the value field."

I really don't know where "custom_query" on the theme beside the template area.

I want to post certain categories, so do I use this?

custom_query( 'cat=11' );

really confused about this.
Quote:

Is there a way to use the info on the Atahualpa > POST/PAGE INFO ITEMS for the kicker and byline for "Multi Post Pages"? I know it's taking it's info from the "HOMEPAGE" kicker and byline.

Edit the page and go to the custom fields area. If you don't see it, check the screen options tab

I am using the template in order to show posts on my home page after some other text. It works great and has for months, but the problem is that the formatting on the post such as links and block quotes don't show up on the multi-post view.

www.togetherwesoar.org

When you click on the link to go into the single post page, all the formatting is there.

How can I get the links and such to show up on the home page? All the posts are showing the full post and not excerpts, btw.

Does that occur even with the proper tags added to the "Don't strip these tags" box in the Excerpts section of the theme options?

" to see the variations you can code. You use what is inside the quotes. For example, if you see
query_posts('cat=2,6,17,38');

into the custom field.

If I have a tag of a few words - it does not work.
tag=animal - Ok
tag='big animal' - does not work
