Client Management

Recommended Posts


Ive got pagelines develper edition and wanted to find out how I do a client hand over. Ie on completion of a website how using pagelines I would like to restricted access to some areas in the cms. Is this possible.

I was wondering if there is any plans to factor client management in to the frame work.

Thanks ddyer

You can restrict certain things to certain usergroups, like add your client as 'editors' then they cant mess with the main settings, as you need to be a full admin to do that.

Is that what you do or others who use pagelines?

Hi there, yes that's what I do.

Set them up as a user role with restricted access to the parts I don't want them adjusting etc. There's also options to set user access in Pagelines>Site Options>Advanced where you can set the user role required to special posts types and page/post meta.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      I have a client of whom has taken un-authorized copy of my pagelines installations, configs, and licenses and placed on new server un-accesable to me.  I do not want this client using any part of my page lines membership and products.
      Please help me figure out how to de-activate the membership connection and license usage for their site.

      Hi, I am about to start a large project and I am using Pagelines DMS to build the site.
      I am looking to hire somebody to work alongside me in building the site.
      If anybody is interested please send me some examples of your work and your daily rate.
      If there is a more appropriate place to post this or search for Pagelines designers, I would be grateful to know.

      Whats up ppl,
      I am having an issue where I want editable content for the client on the page without going through dms.  I am currently using text boxes but the client cannot edit the text unless he/she goes through dms which is what I want to prevent.  Any thoughts would be helpful.

      We had a client/partner that we built a website for using PageLines.  They recently ended the relationship with us and have yet to compensate us for our work on the site.  We were wondering if there is a way to deactivate their use of our PageLines account.  
      They already changed the password for the Admin account of the site so we can't access it that way.  We have changed the password for the PageLines login.  Is that all we can do?  Obviously, all the client would have to do is purchase their own license for PageLines to use the features again, but at least then they wouldn't be using ours.

      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.
      Best regards,
