Showcase

The Showcase section is the main section that will display your Showcase items. The section is separated into three columns, these are:

  • First Column (left): Will display your Showcase (All/Latest) options and list all categories you have created for the Showcase post type).
  • Second Column (middle): Is separated into two areas, these are Featured and Latest. These areas also support pagination.
  • Third Column (right): Will display your recently viewed items and list all featured items.

Configuration
The Showcase section has no configuration options on the front-end, all options are in the PageLines Settings panel in the WordPress Admin Dashboard.

Showcase Options Panel

Showcase Title
Allows you to enter a custom name for your showcase. This will also rename the options panel name.

Showcase Subject
Allows you to use a singular term to describe what you're showcasing. For example, Website, PageLines, Design, etc..

Base Permalink Rewrite Slug
Showcase uses custom post types, which operate across several pages in your site. As such, we need a base slug relative to your site url, that you would like to build permalinks on.

Note: If you're having issues, visit the Permalink options panel in the WordPress Admin Dashboard settings and click Save, this should update your permalink structure and resolve any issue.

Disable Entry Submission
This allows you to disable the entry submission button that is added to Showcase automatically.

Showcase Grid

The Showcase Grid section allows you to display your showcase items in columns and select between featured or your latest items

Columns
The Column option allows you to control how many posts are displayed per row. You can select between:

  • 2 of 12 Columns: This allows your items to be displayed in six columns.
