LESS Compile Error! leading to dashboard whiteout

Recommended Posts

Hi, our pagelines interface has been whited out. It says there's a LESS Compile Error. We set wp_debug on per some of the other posts and are seeing the following error:

Notice: Undefined index: post-trashed in /home/elder/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/disqus-comment-system/disqus.php on line 936

I guess it's an issue with our Disqus plugin? Unclear how to proceed. Any help much appreciated.

thanks,

ok, the site listed in your profile is not even running wordpress.

Disable the disqus plugin 1st.

What was the compile error?

Sorry, the wordpress part is in www.elderbranch.com/blog. We can't seem to disable the disqus plugin because the plugin menu (along with all other menus) are blank.

Compile error is: Error in custom LESS code: parse error: failed at `

(we tried to add some custom code for css styling of tables in our posts - not sure if that caused all this or if it's 2 separate issues).

thanks,

do you have ftp access? if so, rename the pagelines folder to pagelines_ the go to wp-admin, login. Wordpress will switch to the default theme as it cant fint the active theme (pagelines)

Now your in admin, disable the plugins. Then rename the folder back to pagelines and in appearance/themes re-activate it, then go to the custom css area and remove the broken css.

Ok, followed those steps. Unfortunately, when we go back into pagelines after renaming the folder it is still all white. So, we can't remove the broken CSS. No longer getting the Disqus error but still seeing the compile error. Do you know what file the custom code piece is in? Perhaps can open that file directly off ftp and delete the code segment there? Thanks,

The css is stored in the database. But that would not cause a 'white page' and if you have WP_DEBUG on the error should be shown. Do you have any other plugins active?

No, no other plugins are active. Disqus was the only one we had active and we disabled it. WP_debug not showing any other issues.

Sorry for late response - I finally resolved the issue. We had to go into the database and do a search for the CSS code segment there. Realized we had a line of html code there on accident and it was causing the CSS compile error. Deleting the code solved it. Thanks for the help.

There is another open topic on this as well. It appears all 3 of us are having the same problem. Where was the css file in the in the database? I looked for the most recently updated file, but as I had just done an update, I had no luck locating it since several files had the same date.

There is no CSS file in the database. The information is stored in the database. We don't support editing the database, which is why Simon recommended the solution posted above.

So are you saying the 3 of you added HTML into the CSS box?

If you receive a Parse error, it means your CSS is incorrect and you have an error(s).

 

Have you add this to your custom CSS:

 

 

<style type="text/css">
<!--
.moth {
    font-family: "goudy Old Style";
    font-weight: bold;
}
-->
</style>
 
In this format, if so this is the cause of your issue.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
