Can anyone tell me what the structure of the "Features" option? It isn't a standard page, nor is it a post; but it is identical in nature to a Box. The reason for this is that I have plugins that extend the functionality of my pages and my posts, but the plugins do not function on the Features or the Boxes. For some reason, both allow my plugin to operate, and I can't disable it because the Features and Boxes don't load my plugin extensions. Also, one plugin, when activated, tweaks the Settings page for PlatformPro and changes the CSS in some way I can't figure out. tl;dr, plugin jacks up the Platform Pro settings page CSS and features and boxes don't load my plugin extensions but the extensions still display when a feature or box is on screen.

Can you get us a screenshot or something of the messed up settings panel from the plugin? (plugins should know better than this!) Regarding the features, these are a custom post type that only apply (right now) the the "PageLines Features" section.. You can create them, re-order them and use 'feature-sets' to control which pages, show which features. Does this help?

I might have to break this out into two different threads for ease of understanding. For this post though, I understand that they are custom post types which allow somewhat customized functionality, but unlike "Posts" and "Pages" which display all of the administrative plugins that normally allow me to click/unclick a function; the Features and Boxes do not display the same admin plugins that Posts do. I would love them to be able to display the functions just like the pages/posts, that way I can turn off this annoying bug. I'll try to get you a screenshot of the bug. Basically, the CSS is corrupted and the tabs that Pagelines creates has turned a pale blue color and the font is different. Thanks for checking up on this.

the plugin probably has like named id's and classes which corrupt it. You still working on a screenshot for us? Also, what is that plugin and what does it do?

Adam, am I crazy for reading that in Arnold Schwarzenegger's voice from Kindergarten Cop?

The plugin is MyReviewPlugin, it does does ratings calculations and expands some reviewing capabilities.
When I disable it, the CSS corruption goes away. Example:

And normally on a post page, I have a bunch of functions that allow me to disable the rating feature. That doesn't work. Which causes layout issues on "Features" and anything that works with posts/pages/etc... so basically everything that makes PageLines work for me.

Example:

Basically, I need full functionality of a page or post as well as the functions you code for your features in each custom call, like Boxes, Features, Banners. I'm not an experienced programmer, so hopefully you folks can make this happen, otherwise I'm in deep kimchi.

HAHA who is your daddy and what does he do! classic. Don't worry I'm not a cop and you're not an idiot. Definitely CSS corruption. Can you give me a link to your site so I can pinpoint the exact file?

Looks to be "tabs" in admin.css and class.options.ui.php... let me tell ya, FireBug is freaking AWESOME! I added "pro" to the css in admin.css and "pro" to the div in class.options.ui.php and that remedied the problem. So. woop for me... at least until someone comes along with tabspro as an addon and I'm breaking out FireBug again. I'm going to say it was easier to work on your code than the addon because I can't seem to make any sense of my addon. Sorry to bother you with it, but if you want to solve the problem with that addon, feel free to change the tag to "tabspro" or "tabsxxx" or tabs<anything>. Have a good weekend. Wow, my latte at 10pm was not a smart idea.

Now.. about that other issue where the custom post type... I'd really like to be able to remove that addon element, it too is associated with the MyReviewPlugin. Typically I can just unclick an option to remove it, but with teh custom post type, it isn't an option because the custom post type removes the functionality on the admin side, but still pulls that function up on the presentation side. In the mean time, I'm going to try a couple of experiments to see if I can hack my way out of this trouble I've gotten myself into. If only my time machine didn't break, I could have gone forward a couple of weeks and seen this coming.

Ugh.. now I have one giant settings page. I guess I'm not the CSS magician I thought I was.

MyReviewPlugin

It's a commercial plugin found here.

But, yeah. The whole point is that on the custom post types created by PageLines don't include the customization options that are included on WP standard posts and pages. However, because it is still a post/page, MyRP has included the tables and functionality, hence the second image which is the bottom right corner of the sample Features image.

It's really the plugins fault because they shouldn't not be including their css on pages where their plugin isn't being set up or used. I'd tell them about this and tell them to tighten up their code.
