Blog system and Blog element
Hi.. ok so I need to ask, bear with me.
Regarding the Blog system and the blog element.
This seems like what I am asking should be possible, since it works (using wp-bakery in other themes). Maybe I am doing it wrong in this Betheme system.
3 First things first.
So the way you have it currently is you need to assign a specific page for the blog, and assign it in the settings and so on. (understood)
You can can add filters for all categories and tags, and even authors.. (understood)
You can open a specific category page using the URL like. .....category/news/ .. but...
3.A first question:
If I click another category in the filter after having visited https://liasidik.com/category/news/ for example. It seems I can't select any other category or tag. It just won't work...
- Please try to clicking articles.. or whitespace.. nothing happens... ?
3.B option 2 - creating a separate page, and adding a blog element
If I create a page (i.e. news).. and add the blog element... I then assign the 'news' category so it will only load 'news'. It works (understood)
If I add multiple categories.. it works (meaning it will show all assigned categories in the blog thing)... but the filter won't appear. Regardless of the fact I clicked to show filter.
- So let's say I create a page called 'news'
- I add a blog element..
- I add both 'news'.. and 'articles' in the multiple category bit..
- I turn on filter...
The expected result would be it would load both categories.. but also have the filter appear, so the user can select either 'news'.. or 'articles'.... but it can't
Having tried a number of things I am stumped.. and confused, maybe I am doing something wrong.
Basically what I want.. is to know if your blog system uses the standard blog element you would find in something like wpbakery - where we can add all the categories we'd want to load into a blog element.. we can then add a filter to filter all assigned categories.. and exclude all other categories we don't want to appear.
Thus enabling us to create specific pages dedicated to one category. i.e if I wanted to create something like:
page 1. 'Math's classes' (it will load only all 'Math's classes' as assigned to that element.. with category filters associated i.e. - algebra, multiplication etc)
page 2, could be 'language class'.. and so on... French, English etc. etc.
Anyway I hope you get what I mean.
Other than that the theme is excellent. Greatest pro is the device preview... but not having this blog feature is kind of a deal breaker sadly.
