Hello,

 

 

I bought the section "NewsViews" (http://www.pagelines...ons/news-views/) of "Kyle & Irving" (http://pagelines.kyle-irving.co.uk/).

I upload and installed it on DMS 2.

I used Chrome on Macbook pro OS and Windows 7 virtual machine.

 

In both cases, the problem is that I cannot select the categories of post that I want to show. It shows me systematically all the categories and I cannot change it.

 

Can someone help me ?

 

thanks

 

Best

 

 

Rafales

Hello, 

 

We have good news on News Views.

The multi select issue was not working due to small bug in the DMS .js library. This has now been identified and a patch has been applied that will be in a future update of DMS. 

We have tested this locally and it solves the issue. you can either wait for the update to DMS to be published or if you like you can add the following code to your child themes functions.php file
 

 
*/
  function pl_do_shortcode(opt) {
  	
 +	/* If we are not a string, bail out! */
 +	if( 'string' !== typeof opt || ! opt.length )
 +		return opt
 +
  	var match = opt.match( /\[([^\]]*)/ ) || false
  	var shortcode = (match) ? match[1] : false

We hope that this helps. 

Thanks again for your patience

Hello,

 

 

Thank you for the correction.

 

I tried to do what you propose by modifying the code on my site. But I'm not a specialist at all...  :startle:

I joined a capture of what I did... (I tried to do...) And, of course, it didn't work.

 

Could you help me, with more details ?

 

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Best.

Hello Rafales, 

In this instance as this is a js DMS bug (not a News Views bug) and it can't be added to a functions.php file (my mistake - sorry).

I would recommend you wait for the update to DMS. I imagine it will be released in shortly. 

best, Gavin

Hi there,

 

I will await the update, I can't select any of the categories either, it will only display all of them.

 

Cant wait until it displays others and multi select categories?

 

thanks

 

Paul
