Upgraded to DMS & now all my boxes are gone!


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi

Yesterday I updated content on my website (www.aciucn.org.au) using Wordpress, for a relatively important press release to go out today. After I finished, I clicked on the button in wordpress that said to upgrade to the new version of pagelines 2.7.3. When I did this, my website suddenly went completely blank and said that the pagelines theme is installed but "incomplete, with the stylesheet missing".   I have no idea what this means, and so to try and fix the problem, I then downloaded the latest DMS plugin, hoping that would fix my problem.  I then tried to just get my website host to revert to yesterday's backup that I made before I started, but that doesn't take me back to the old pagelines framework platform.  

 

SO, now I have a new system (DMS) that seems to solve the 'blank' problem of a lacking stylesheet that I had yesterday, but all of my content, which I had mostly in 'boxes', does not appear to have copied across.  Are the boxes gone?  How do I get all my content across?  Can i revert back to the old pagelines version i had before to fix this? Or can i recover all my content from the boxes that seem to have disappeared????

 

HELP PLEASE!!!

 

Thanks, Kathy

The PageLines Framework Boxes section has been deprecated in DMS and therefore any content you have created using Banners, Boxes or Features will need to converted by you.

 

The content should still be there, so if you switch back to the PageLines Framework theme, your content from these section should be available.

If you're using PageLines Framework and the Boxes menu has disappeared, it is most likely you have disabled the section or you have installed a plugin that uses a Wordpress bug to position its menu, which will cause a conflict with Custom Post Type menus when you have more than 3 or 4 I think.

 

Disable all active plugins and the Boxes menu should appear again.

Apologies for the delays.  I'm happy though, that you were able to resolve it.  Thanks too, for reporting the spammer.
