Sydney theme double blog


#1

Hello,

My site is http://wedonttalkabout.com/ The home page is a rolling blog (newest first).

I would like to turn the Archives page into a mason grid blog (with all posts displayed). http://wedonttalkabout.com/archive

How do I do this?

Astrid

Hello Astrid,

Have you try this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-masonry-layout/?

Hi… I know how to make it masonry style, I think.

My problem is that I don’t know how to set up two blog pages.

Can you please help?

Astrid

Did you mean that you want to put the archive masonry together with the latest post into the page? If so, you can use “Post loop” widget from siteOrigin for the first row on the page builder and then add one more row to put the shortcode of the plugin which I mentioned in above using “text” widget

Not quite…

I would like to set up an Archive page that has all of my previous blogs in a different format - the masonry format - than the home page, which is where they automatically go.

The archive page is currently blank… My problem is that I don;t know how to set up a double blog, so to speak. How do I make the blogposts go to both the home page and the archive page?

Thank you.

Something like this http://prntscr.com/9xjlqs

If so, please try the steps below:

  1. Edit your page and activate the page-builder
  2. add one row and add “archive” widgets
  3. Edit widget > widget styles > attribute > add a name to the widget class, e.g: masonry-archive
  4. change the page template to “Default template”
  5. apply the following css code:
.masonry-archive ul li {
    display: inline-block;
    border: 1px solid #eee;
    padding: 45px;
    margin-right: 10px;
}

Thank you… Those instructions turned the archive widget itself into a masonry-type post (i.e. a rectangle), but they do not display the blog posts as such.

See http://wedonttalkabout.com/archive

I would like this page, which I have called archive but I could call older poster or any thing else) to look like what a standard blog page in the masonry style looks like. Is that possible?

Thanks.

I have added a category ‘archive’ to all posts.

Is there any way I can use that to display them in masonry format?

Thank you.

Looks like your css code is not working properly, how did you put the css code in your site? the css code in above should be placed in styles.css or in your custom css plugin.

So, you’ve added category archive to all posts? it should be more easier now, you can follow the instruction from here http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-themes/how-to-use-masonry-to-add-pinterest-style-post-grid-in-wordpress/ if you like to tweak the code, or you can also using plugin such as https://wordpress.org/plugins/masonry-post-gallery/screenshots/ or https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-masonry-layout/
