Site: http://beyondsalad.com

Using: DMS 1.1.6

WP: 3.8.1

Host: ipage

 

I dont know what just happened.  I was editing the columns of my page and then they all 'collapsed' on each other.  Instead of how they NORmally are, where one column is NEXT to the other, and if you resize one, it pushes the other out of the way, as you can see here (http://www.monkeyv.com/b3f22 ; http://beyondsalad.c...taulfo-mangoes/) they are now stacked.  There were two columns side by side, comments in the larger one. If I try to move the comments section out from under the one column it just goes right back under something else.  If I try to resize a column, it resizes but nothing actually moves.  I cant change the positioning of the columns or anything.  If I try to add a two column section to the layout, everything disappears (http://www.monkeyv.com/c91f5).  I saw that there was an update and went to 1.1.6, but it didnt help. 

 

Also, I was editing things in the local text box and highlight, but it is acting like a global edit, showing the exact same changes on this page (http://beyondsalad.c...s/roots/ginger/).  

I am banging my head against the wall over here.
Any ideas?


Also, any illumination as to why my site loads so bloody slowly would be awesome as well :/

Thanks

Hi there,

 

What are the widths of each of the columns in the editor, the columns are based on the bootstrap grid which means full width of the available section is 12, so in order to be side by side each will need to be 6 or one 4 the other 8 etc. If the width of the two columns is over 12 then it moves down to the next line. Also if you've made any css adjustments to the padding/margins in the column this can push the column outside of the available content area.

 

Any sections like textbox if placed in the header or footer area of the page they will appear on each page/template. Make sure any content you want to appear local depending on the template is applied to the template area of the page.

I understand this idea, and usually, it is how it works, but as you can see from the photo I attached before, and in these two (www.monkeyv.com/3a871 & www.monkeyv.com/153ca), the columns are actually stacked on TOP of each other, as in, you can see the dotted lines of one, THROUGH the other, not one above and scroll down to see another below.  I did not resize the columns - what used to sit side by side no longer sits side by side.

 

Also, the text boxes are in the body of the page, not the header or footer.  I am a little slow, but im not wholly inept - something is actually wrong.

Hi there,

 

I'm unable to view the live site unfortunately, its says loading but just continues to load the actual page doesn't come up. I think the best option so we can see the exact set up and how its reacting would be to record a short screencast for us so we can see the editing live.

 

Please deactivate any third party plugins first, just incase some code is overriding the column width or adjusting the editor.

 

Then install http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html. Record us a short screencast and drop the link in to your response and we'll be able to look at what's happening for you.
