OK. So it’s more of an “Edit Code” mode than a debug mode. Do you have plans to open it up a little more to make it more flexible between modes? Or maybe at least have some kind of brightly highlighted warning on the edit page saying ONLY EDIT IN ALB!! to warn unsuspecting editors. Just a thought.
Thanks for your reply. Good to know.
Just to confirm, am I correct in understanding that you cannot edit a page that has any ALB element on it outside of ALB?
And you can’t edit the code view supplied by the debug mode – you HAVE to use the graphic alb interface?
What if I was using a plugin like Events Manager or Download Manager that has it’s own shortcode? That cannot be used on an ALB generated page?

Ok. I got it. I deleted the layerslider from the page, saved. Then I opened the page in the Advanced Layout Builder and added it again.
It appears that you cannot change text using the Default Editor without messing up the shortcode elements. Does this sound right to you?
BTW, some things I’ve already tried:
1. deactivating plugins
2. Deleting custom css in the “quick css” field
3. Deleting functions.php (child theme) in case something went weird there.
No luck with any of these.
I added the demo slider that came with enfold and then replaced it with my images and text. It worked for a couple of months until yesterday when I changed some text. Now it no longer displays full-width.
EDIT: if you meant how did I add it to the page, I used the shortcode.

Ok. Found a backup I made yesterday morning. Whew. I still have to re-do yesterday’s work but Lesson learned.
I still can’t utilize the fade functionality though.
Great. This is how I wanted to spend my day. We both know that “service providers” do not back up daily.
BTW, the code you “added” was already in the functions.php. As I said several times throughout this thread.
Wow. Just wow. Not a happy customer. At. All.
No it was not empty. Just the other day Peter added code to it. (see https://kriesi.at/support/topic/nested-sub-page-menu-on-sidebar/#post-299091). And that was in addition to everything I added to it. Definitely not empty.
You deleted all the other code that was in functions.php. I need that code! The site is now broken. All the customizations I made are gone. Hours and hours of work. Gone.

Thanks for your reply!
1. As I said, I have added the snippet to functions.php. When I edit an alb element, the custom css field is not there.
Please go here for a screenshot on what I am seeing (or not seeing). There is also a screenshot of the functions.php so you can see that the snippet is actually there.
2. OH!!!! I was looking for a global setting in the theme settings. Shouldn’t this be a global setting, you know, to keep things consistent without being cumbersome and difficult for other users who add posts?
Regardless, I am going to have to edit over a hundred posts and pages to use this feature. I don’t see that happening.
Regarding the documentation and help – I do search the forums beforehand and I have looked over the documentation tho I admit not viewing the videos. They do not answer specific questions quickly…I don’t have the time to sit through multiple 10 minute videos to find the answer to something that would take a couple of written sentences. Videos aren’t searchable so I won’t even know if I’m viewing the right video to find my answer until the vid is over. For this reason, I am asking a lot of questions in the support. I guess I’ll start fumbling through with frustration instead.
You. Are. Awesome. Thank you so much for taking the time to make the change.
Enfold is becoming a fave.
Thanks for your reply! Feeling kinda dumb here…so I have some questions:
1. I have added the necessary snippet to functions.php. How does one get to the “shortcode/template builder” screen shown on the documentation link you provided? Or is that a ‘dummy’ image illustrating what I should be seeing?
The documentation indicates that I should see that additional css field on all the alb elements. I do not. Does it only work on some elements? If so, which ones?
2. on the imgur link: how does one get to that screen?
Got it. Worked great!! Is this one of those things I need to keep track of and update on every theme upgrade?
BTW – I missed the top part because for some reason this page scrolled to the bottom – didn’t notice that when I loaded the page.
Hi! Thanks for your quick reply!
I gave that link a try with my own page in the link but, unfortunately, it opened the page in the same window, not a lightbox.
(running wp 3.9.1 and latest enfold).
Thank you for your reply! I have added the code to functions.php in the child theme (which is the active theme :-) ). I cleared the browser cache but am not seeing the parent page as a title/link above the list of sub-pages. I am using the latest version of enfold.
Is there something else I need to add?
Right. got that. Done that. Not helpful for what I need.
I want all post pages (tags, categories, etc) to display the same as what I have chosen for the blog style on the “blog layout” page. If I choose “Use the advance Layout Builder” on the Enfold > Blog Layout panel it only applies the layout and options to the blog page selected on the “theme options” (as expected because it is only configured to that specific page). It does not apply to other post layout pages, like tags. How do I get that layout to apply globally? Like it does if I choose “grid layout” on the Enfold > Blog Layout panel
If I choose “blog layout” Enfold > Blog Layout panel it applies to all post landing pages, but I can’t tweak the layout to my requirements (like I can with the advanced layout builder. Where is the help page and/or video that shows me how to do this? I’ve looked in both the videos, the documentation and the support. Maybe I just can’t see it so if you could send me the link to the documentation and/or video I would really appreciate it.
Thanks for your reply. I found this topic in the forum: https://kriesi.at/support/topic/nested-sub-page-navigation/#post-119777 .
Was it not added to the theme?
Ok. I got the excerpt length handled. The code on the link you posted is for wordpress. Enfold uses a different excerpt length function that overrides the wordpress one.
So this worked to customize the excerpt length
add_filter(‘avf_postgrid_excerpt_length’,’avia_change_postgrid_excerpt_length’, 10, 1);
$length = 155;
Still need assistance with all the other things though…any help is appreciated!
The excerpt length snippet you provided does not work. Is there another one that does?
I was able to get the columns to ‘2’ on ‘tags’. Unfortunately my “blog” page is still showing 3 columns. How do I make “2” columns global?
It appears that if I set the “blog” page in the enfold “theme options”, the default settings are out of my control. If I set the blog-layout to ‘grid’ and then try to control the settings on the page by adding an avia layout shortcode to the page, the page comes back blank. (the page doesn’t override the theme settings – shouldn’t it?)
If I set the blog layout to “use avia layout builder” then the other pages (tag/archive/etc) come back as one column. I’m looking for uniformity here. If I set the blog page to one layout, how do I control the layout of the extracurricular pages?
This is so frustrating. Is there documentation on this stuff that I am missing? Please post a link to the guidance on this – I don’t have all day (week?) to figure this out. It seems like I fix a setting on one page and breaks another. Is there a way to globally set this stuff?
If there’s no documentation:
1. What settings do I need on the theme options and blog layout pages to make the following work globally?
2. how do I get the author name and link to their profile to show on the grid layout?
3. How do I change the date format on the blog/tag/etc pages?
4. How do I set the number of posts displayed on the grid layout?
5. How do I get the read more link to show on the grid layout?
6. And the previous excerpt question as well (snippet didn’t work – need one that does).
Thanks for any help you can provide!
Thanks for your reply.
Is this something I am going to have to update every time there is a theme update? Or is it protected from overwriting on updates?
