pagelines-compiled-css won't cache


Question

Posted · Report post

I just setup W3 Total Cache on this site and it appears that all the assets have are working on the CDN (Amazon S3), except for this file: /wp-content/themes/pagelines/pagelines-compiled-css-X_XXXXXXXXXX

 

While most of the site's CSS seems to be working, the CSS will not load for the /blog/ section of the site. Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance.

Ok first things 1st.

 

Clear the cache and disable the plugin.

 

The reason the file is not pushed to the CDN is that is not a real file.

 

http://www.crowdstreet.com/wp-content/themes/pagelines/pagelines-compiled-css-1_1370025844/

 

This is because for whatever reason the Framework could not write a real css file so it falls back to this dynamic fake css file, works fine for browsers but not so with cdns.

 

So enable debug under advanced settings and we might be able to help more.

Might be enabled for you but all we see is a cached page.

 

We cant do anything at all until we see live pages, sorry.

PHP User : Posix functions are disabled on this host!
So your gonna have to force it.
 
Install the free pagelines-customize plugin. You'll see it in the store.
Activate it.
Open wp-contents/plugins/pagelines-customize/functions.php
Add the following:

Thanks, Simon. I've added the above to the end of functions.php. However, the pagelines compiled css is still not working. This may have something to do with the fact that I'm using a child theme. Thoughts?

Simon, I see that now. Thanks for the help... However, the custom LESS code is no longer working.

I have some custom LESS code in the Pagelines panel to change NavBar and some other items. Since, I've activated the Customization Plugin the styles are slightly off in some places. For example, to set the logo size in nav I added the following: 

 

.plbrand{

...

img{max-height: 59px;} 

}

 

This is correctly setting the logo size, but it is also forcing other images on the site to a max height of 59px, for example here http://www.crowdstreet.com/real-estate/future-of-real-estate-crowdfunding/ and  http://www.crowdstreet.com/about/

Simon, I figured this out. I apparently had a duplicate style sheet in place which was causing an error. Sorry to trouble you and thanks for your help. 

 

Feeling bleary-eyed after several hours of mindless troubleshooting. So, I'm going to try to get this CDN in place after a few beers and a good night sleep!

 

Many thanks!

I've continued to have problems with the way that my caching plugin (W3 Total Cache) works with Pagelines' CSS compiler, specifically because the compiled css file gets a new filename whenever changes are made. I found a workaround that I wanted to share, just in case anyone else runs in to this issue.

 

I was able to solve this problem, but adding the following to the CDN > Custom File list in W3TC: wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-*.css ... By including an asterisk (*) instead of the generated number, W3TC will load and serve any new variation of the compiled CSS file.

 

Hope this helps! :)

I have a new site that is running DMS. Wondering if this solution from Simon_P (below) works with DMS, too. I can't seem to figure out how to install the customize plugin.

You can put it in a child theme functions file too.
