What Is The Difference Between Iblog And Pagelines (And A Few Other Questions)

Recommended Posts

wyzard

Hi,

I'm new to this (i had someone working on the site, but now doing it myself).

I was wondering if anyone could either answer, or point me in the right direction (I haven't had to much luck searching the forums)

I'm using iblog 4.2.4

My questions are

1) Is iBlog a totally separate theme to Pagelines?

Or does Pagelines work like the framework, with the theme sitting on top?

(like the genesis framework on the studiopress sites)

2) If so, is pagelines automatically installed with iblog, or how does it work?

(Is there any documentation I can read)

3) I see iblog5 is out, how would I upgrade and would this be free?

4) Also, if Pagelines is the framework, how would I upgrade this?

5) Are there any 'getting started docs' or anything like that for both iblog and pagelines

Any answers would be much appreciated, I'm not that savvy and trying to find some bearings

(I apologise if there's already a thread of docs that I haven't found yet)

Thanks

1) IBlog 4 was a standalone theme, which predates the Pagelines Framework. This theme is now considered a legacy theme and the latest edition, IBlog Pro 5, is a child theme for the Pagelines Framework.

2) The Pagelines Framework is the main theme, you'd need to purchase that first, IBlog Pro 5 would then need to be purchased as a child theme for the Pagelines Framework.

3) To upgrade please contact hello@pagelines.com and we'll go through the process with you.

4) Same as above

5) The Pagelines docs can be found here http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Main_Page


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.

      Hello Pagelines,   I no longer use pagelines services. I have deactivated the automatic annual payment. But it already charged to my credit card. Since I cancelled my contract before the end, Can I request to refund?

      Hello,
      I am wanting to know what the status of the Pagelines Platform.
      I have noticed that there has been absolutely no updates on Platform 5 for over 8 months.
      Please tell me you haven't gone off on another tangent and going to build the next great solution
      and then leave all of us to have to completely rebuild our sites like we did for
      Pagelines, then DMS, then Pagelines Platform.
      I like what you build, but what you need to do is build one product and then make it better, rather than 
      abandoning it and building something else.
      You haven't done anything for so long that even WordPress is providing a warning.
      "Warning: This plugin has not been tested with your current version of WordPress."
      So what is the Status. I mean if I am going to pay a monthly fee for a product, I don't want to pay for one
      that is no longer being supported. You have a great product, I'm not bashing it, I'm just wondering what 
      your next move is because I have business decisions to make for myself, and whether of not this is something
      I should stick with.

      Please be kind enough to respond.

      Thank You,
      Anthony

      Hello There,
      So i want to use platform 5 and DMS sections on a single page, i am using a child theme with pinspro as my main theme and i activated platform 5, the only problem am having so far is the fixed option, my navbars are not aligning to their default size, and it will be great if platform 5 header and footer section will function, has anyone used this option, how can i make the best use of platform 5 and DMS on a site
      Cheers

      I've been fighting with a resolution issue ? Want to use Flick Slider, the site looks great on my monitor but client says she can't see bottom of homes. I believe she's on an old PC using outdated browser/s ... but, she's important to me and I'd like to make this work, on her system. Without asking her adjust her own set-up. 
      I put the Flick Slider inside a container, here ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-five
      Set the Height of Flick Slider to 50 Base ... I don't know how this works exactly ... there is a Base then a Min ... but, haven't adjusted the Min ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-four/
      Tried using Splash Up, which presents the same issue (she can only see top of home) and she wants several images to rotate on Home page, so not sure this would work anyway ::
      http://becauze.xyz/
      I have tried going into Layout and making the width narrower, and that does make the site narrower, but the homes still don't display in full, on her system. Help ?

      Here are her screen grabs, both desktop and iPad  (dumped the chalkboard background).

      FInally, she said these look great ::

      What am I doing wrong ?? Is there a better way to accomplish making the site look great on any resolution at any size ?
