I have been building a site for a couple of weeks. We are near the end and when I wake up today, none of my CSS is taking effect like it has been all this time. I have not added any new plugins that haven't been there since day 1 and the one plugin that had an update yesterday, I disabled thinking that was the culprit (was a social plugin) but no. I have checked my Text Boxes and areas where I have custom classes that connect to the CSS in the Less box and they are all still there but it's truly just all of a sudden, NONE of my Custom CSS is having any effect.
I even (few min ago) deactivated ALL plugins and it's still not reading my CSS. Need help here since today was the day I was going to turn the site over to the client. Have never had this happen.
Can supply domain and sign in details once a moderator responds.
Just an FYI. I was having issues with the CSS Less box and items disappearing or appearing very light gray and blocked out from me accessing.
Found out for sure that if you install or have the "Shortcodes Ultimate" plugin installed (version 3.9.5 is what I was using) or install it after starting a new site, it will cause the CSS Less box to crash. Started with this plugin when debugging and after deactivating and going back in, CSS Less was fine.
Hope this helps someone who may have experienced the same issue.
I have noticed on a site of mine that I'm redesigning with DMS that certain changes I make with CSS Less don't save...mainly:
1. Changes to text and appearance in the Hero boxes and
2. Changes to the Masthead box.
I added code to remove the built in opacity of the text of the sub text since it always looked pretty "greyish". I view it after adding and it work and I see it but when I save, re-save template, it stays for a bit and then disappears back to the old defaults.
I have even added #page (and tried #site) at the beginning of the code but the changes I make disappear EVEN THOUGH the custom code is still there in my CSS Less area.
Anyone else have this problem?
I worked on a DMS template/design on one of my websites while testing things out. After I got things like I really wanted, I performed the export function and downloaded my templates, files, configurations, etc. I selected all options to export (Global Settings, Post Types, etc).
I then went into another website I have, installed DMS, activated (Developer account) and got the usual welcome, etc.etc.
I then went, uploaded my exported configurations and everything appeared to copy over after loading the main template I was wanting to see. Some images aren't showing up but that's no biggie.
My problem is that I had about 8-10 blocks of custom css code I added to the original design and this does not show on the Custom Less/Css area so I went to just copy it over from the other site into the block area for Custom Less/CSS but the field is not active on the new site. I can click on "Custom Scripts" and that is active and will allow me to add data but the Custom Less/CSS field is not "active" and I can't click inside or add anything.
Did I do something wrong?
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.
