Template Drag'n'drop Doesn't Save



Best Answer dnnyboy , 19 February 2013 - 02:24 PM

I think I might have found the reason this isn't working for me. I had inadvertently used hyphens in the filenames of my page template, which I guess is not allowed, e.g.

 

page.staff-gallery.php

 

Anyway, if I remove the hyphens, e.g.

 

page.staffgallery.php

 

everything seems to be working.

Hi,

I've created a new custom page template. When I try to add sections using the drag'n'drop interface, the changes aren't saved. I've tried in three different browsers with the same result. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Daniel

Hi,

Which method are you using, by this I mean, are you using the PageLines Framework with the customisation plugin or the Base child theme ?

Have you tried disabling all non-PageLines plugins and see if this resolves the issue ?

Hi Danny,

Now that you mention it, I think I might be using both. I'm running the Base Theme AND I've got the customization plugin active. Is this a) a problem and b ) pointless? :)

If you're using the Base theme already, I don't see a point in using PageLines Customize, but I also don't see the harm in using both (however, you should keep your customizations in one place, so you should pick one or the other).

Hey did you find why it won't save? I am having the same problem!

I desactivate all plugins, sections, themes and I still keep having the same problem to save the drag and drop section on the templates.

Are you using the latest version of Framework?

Hi,

 

I haven't had to deal with this in a while, but now I'm back with the same problem. I created a couple of new custom page templates, but I can't get the drag & drop template setup to save my templates.

 

I'm running version 2.4.

Can you disable all non-PageLines plugins and see if this resolves your issue. As I am unable to recreate the issue.

I have disabled all plugins, and the problem persists.

Can you provide a link to the site in question and also enable PageLines debug.

 

PageLines > Site Options > Advanced.

I am by no means an expert in server configuration but this may be the cause of your issue as on your debug information you have the following:

 

 

PHP Safe Mode : Yes!
 
PHP Open basedir restriction : Yes!
 
PHP Register Globals : Yes (bad)
 
PHP Magic Quotes gpc : Yes (bad)
 
I recommend contacting your host and show them this information.

Danny,

 

I have the same problem on my test setup, and the Pagelines debug output is:
