Hi,

I'm currently running 2.2.5 - I've not been able to update to the more recent editions because it breaks the site, (all page structure vanishes and I'm just left with a long list of text).

I'm just wondering what steps I need to take to try and stop this from happening, (I'm not a developer!), as I want to keep up to date with Pagelines, but I'm unable to at the moment.

What information can I provide so that I can get some help with this? FYI, the site is an intranet so I can't provide you with access to it.

Many thanks

Hmmm... So I completely removed the theme from my Wordpress installation and re-installed the latest Framework, and it all worked with no bother on Safari, but IE 9 still not playing? All Custom CSS and plugins have been deactivated...

Sometimes it can break your install if you have a child theme and you don't update both the theme and the framework. Best bet is to disable all plugins, make a backup, and then update. This can help ensure a successful transition.

Thanks Anthony. I am not using child themes though, (I don't think). I've disabled all plugins, backed up and upgraded, but IE just won't render correctly... It's as if the CSS just isn't there?

To check if you are using a child theme, go to Appearance > Themes and look at the theme that's activated.

Pagelines Framework, (So I'm assuming I don't have a child theme activated?)

Is your private url a LAN url or you just dont want it public? Only moderators can see it to try and help you.

Thanks Simon, the situation remains I'm afraid - is there perhaps something I can put on here to show you? Code of some sort?

Right well thats the css, go to pagelines advanced, enabled the debug option, then reload that css url, scroll right to the bottom, should be a comment about memory.

After you enabled debug, there will be a "more info" link on the right. Can you paste what's at that link?

And, FYI, it doesn't work even if I disable plugins and upgrade.

Did you already check with your host to see if there are any problems there?

This is a localhost dev site is it? with 67 active plugins?!? Do you really need all of them?

What OS is it? windows? osx? Your server is running with the username 'apache', guessing thats not your name ;) So all the files will have to be read/write to the user apache. If your using osx, use MAMP and run the server as your own username, then you wont get these stupid file permission errors.

I've knocked a few of the plugins away. We use the site as an Intranet. It's run on Red Hat and is accessed by users of OS X, Win XP and Win 7.

It's the Windows 7 users, (explorer 9), that are having the problem. It's absolutely fine, and then as soon as I hit upgrade, it all goes to cock. (Thankfully we have Veamm so I can roll back instantly)... The apache username is just left as it is. As I said, I'm no developer, but it's ran fine like this for the past couple of years...
