There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Juggledad's multi column/custom query

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

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

Hello,

I'm new at some of this, and I wanted to use this template. But I got stuck right here, because I don't have a clue how or where to add a "custom field." Are the words "number of columns=3" written into the page itself? Is there another place to add custom fields?

I know it's the holidays and you probably are busy, but I really need to get this done rather quickly. A hint would be appreciated.

Regards,
Alan

Custom fields are part of Wordpress. When you edit the page, if you don't see the custom fields section, click the screen options - top right of the screen - and check the option on

Thanks JD,

I'm sure I'll have further questions later on.

I simply cannot get this to work. Perhaps I am not using it right. Is it to show the blog posts on the post page in three columns rather than one post on top of another horizontially?

I am using the latest version of wordpress and the latest version of Atahualpa on a godaddy server, using the template_multi_column_custom_query template, have added the custom field number_of_columns and value 3, added the css and cannot get it to work. When it did not work I deactivated all the plugins, didn't help.

What did I forget to do?

If this is not the right mod, can you direct me to a mod that will do what I need to do?

Thanks,

Dan
