[resolved] Adding information to the top of a Press Release (3 posts)

    Just install the plugin and liking what I see. Is there a way to add the standard PR stuff at the top? Company logo, contact information, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, etc?

    If so, what is the recommended way?

    Thank you.

    Well, of course, you could add any content to the top of a particular press release, just like a normal post. But it sounds like you'd want a standard header, similar to the "boilerpate", which is effectively a standard footer. This feature isn't in there at the moment.

    Alternatively, you could create a page template file for press releases. In your theme directory, create a file named single-press-release.php. Copy over the contents of an existing file, either single.php, page.php, archive.php or index.php. Then you can hard code any content at the top of press releases, including adding a logo, or a sub-heading, "FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE".

    Matt,

    I was on the right path, just misnamed the file (had single-press-releases.php instead of single-press-release.php). I'm am better with HTML than php so I just hardcoded in the information and it looks great.

    I propose adding an optional header much like you did with the boilerplate and possibly a section in the press release creation/edit area where a second company can be added for that particular release. You know how some press releases have two companies at the bottom... this would be a nice optional feature as well.

    Great plugin... Thank you for it and your response.
