DMS 2 Ninja Forms Conflict with DMS


Question

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hello,

 

I am a long time user of the Ninja Forms plugin for WordPress and I have come to find that the plugin and DMS2 do not play well together.

 

When I implement a basic Ninja Form on any page it generally works fine.  However, once I adjust the settings on the same form so that it works as a multi-part form, things get really rough.  By this point, once the new form settings are saved, I can no longer load the page on the front-end w DMS2.  I simply get a blank page with no content whatsoever and none of the underlying template elements.  It's literally a white blank page whether it's being loaded with DMS editor in Chrome or FF, Safari etc.  

 

Let's assume at this point that the only 'content' that should be appearing on the page (that no longer does) is the form itself and a couple of images, i.e. SSL certificate.

 

Once this series of events occurs, the only remedy that allows for loading the page in the DMS editor and to once again see the theme elements is by inactivating Ninja Forms.

 

I'm hoping we might be able to kick off a productive discussion about what might be causing this issue so that I can properly dial in the dev folks at Ninja Forms in case it's something that needs to be addressed on their end.  

 

Thanks in advance for helping to find a solution.

Cassey,

 

Thanks for being so kind to share your thoughts on this.

 

While the first two examples you provided don't really apply in my case, the third issue is definitely something I've noticed as well.  In consideration of this, I will try inserting the shortcode on front end editor vs using the custom widget areas.  

 

I'll report back shortly.

On the advice of one of the developers at Ninja Forms, I reached out to CopyBlogger (WebSynthesis Hosting) to reveal the challenges I've been facing implementing SSL on the one page that our site depends on for collecting payments.  Below, is what they said:

 

Hi Jarrod,

I have set http://downpaymentassistance.net/request-credit to 'Force HTTPS' (since Wordpress HTTPS has been enabled already) and tested it and it redirects to the https version. All the other pages don't get redirected to https at all unless you manually enter it.

The page is not formatted because the javascript and CSS from your theme is being forced to http and not https. Wordpress HTTPS is supposed to correct this but it seems that it can't overwrite your theme's settings. You may want to coordinate with your theme developer to make sure that JS/CSS also get served via https.

Thanks!

 

If the folks at CopyBlogger are right, then how could anyone implement SSL on a single page using DMS as their theme?  Surely others must be doing this, n'est ce pas?

 

Can someone please show me an example of a site running on the DMS theme with at least one page (but not all pages) where SSL is implemented?  

 

I'm truly at my wits end here and will have no choice but to have to switch themes if the issue cannot be resolved.

 

Thanks in advance for taking a fresh look at this.

Thanks, Danny.  

 

It's been several weeks and I still have not been able to get the issue resolved on my end.  Can you think of anything I might be missing here?  Is there perhaps an SSL plugin for WordPress other than WordPress SSL that might be better equipped to overcome the javascript and CSS behavior of the theme?

 

What would be your next move if you were in my shoes?
