Appreciate the new docs

 

but have to point out 

Shortcodes/tools

 

Charts for when you want to show some charts and stuffs

Previously reported on the main forum as now deprecated by Google.

Why let customers happily put this feature into a site if it is no longer supported and is going to disappear

 

As per that post  - would be fantastic to have a current option for Charts that was as simple to use as this (you need to document how to do charts other than pi)

 

btw - What is 'stuffs'

It's simply the colourful wording of one of our developers, nothing more. You will most likely find other words or phrasing, just don't read too much into it :D

Newbie here - trying to put together a site with sections and plugins since I do not write code and can't find a theme that has the flexibility I need.  I am trying to set up a site with a clean look.  I am finding that the "projects", boxes, decker, scrollex are all varying widths so the site looks messy.  Is there a way to adjust the width of each of these so they are all the same?

Hi there ScanLondesign, please can you start a new post/thread for your question so we can keep all answered relating to it in the same place :-)

 

However, I can say if you are looking to adjust the width of sections/features and override the defaults inside Pagelines you will need to use custom css. You can find out more about using css inside the Framework here - http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS


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.

About bloody time! Well done!

 

Upon a quick look there's everything pretty much in one place. I was getting tired of surfing all over the place and asking in forums for that info! :) Now a newcomer (either experienced develeper - or one just missing some knowledge here and there like me) should be able to grasp how all the various elements fit together - which is supposed to be the mantra of Pagelines anyway - isn't it... quick development?

I'm hoping that this is the right place for this suggestion.  I've been a Pageline customer for a while, and I really like the products, plug-ins and all that Pagelines has on offer.  However, recently I downloaded the BROWSER-SPECIFIC-CSS plug-in for the Pagelines framework, and after not being able to figure it out, I went looking for instructions.  Now, granted, there is a call out on the product page that states support can be found in the product's support area of the site.  But when you get there, you have to dig a little more to find the specific product support you're looking for.  

 

Why not simply place the direct link for support on the product page?  You know "Looking for Support for this Product?  Click here."  Just wondering if that's too much to ask?

 

Thanks.

When is the documentation going to be completed? There still too many pages with place holder images. It really isn't that helpful...

Hi there,

 

I'll check what stage we're upto with our doc's team for you on the screenshots. I think at the moment they're concentrating on get as many of the instructions up as possible to make sure the information is there, then follow up with the screenshots. We'll check and get back to you.

A suggestion: If you could complete the part on how to create your own sections, that would be very helpful.

 I am new to Pagelines. I have some basic HTML/CSS knowldege but I am currently a beginner when it comes to PHP & Javascript.

 

I I have just finished watched the PDET Video tutorials. They were a little out of date but still helpful in understanding how to create sections, even for a complete beginner like me.

 

The problem is - where are the rest of the promised videos? You covered Sections, but what about building themes and plugins?

 

I want to learn how to create/customise a child theme in Pagelines but I have no idea where to start.

 

Are their any video tutorials explaining how to create child themes for Pagelines? Or even basic documentation? I can't find anything anywhere...

 

Is there a easy way to convert an existing WP theme into a Pagelines child theme?

 

I like Pagelines in principle, but these days very few of us would build a WP theme from scratch for a new website - we'd simply take an existing theme and customise it.

 

I want to take an existing WP theme and customise it for Pagelines. Is this possible?

Hi,

 

The PageLines theming center should assist you - http://demo.pagelines.me/theming/

 

If it doesn't please provide some feedback and we can try to make the process simpler.

      When are the docs pages going to refilled? 
      ..and will the content they have replaced be made available somewhere else?
      A bit too far into a DMS2 project to drop it for Platform 5,  but it certainly gives the impression it will be a lot more of a peppy, positive experience, so I'll shoot for that as the second rollout of the site, but until then- the inbuilt links to content (Docs, sections, answers..) in DMS 2 are either 404 or empty. Perhaps a revision that redirects those pages to the old content so it's available where it's needed and not on the current site / product offering where it would could cause confusion and such.
      I will say, I got into Pagelines because my interpretation of it was that it combines the easy (better) parts of NationBuilder, Webly, et al- and allows one to still have ultimate control, where with the aforementioned platforms, you are basically .. SOL. 
       
      -BUT- it took a while for exactly what was going on, what all the pieces were, and what exactly the product really was, to click with me. 
      I might add that, it was looking at the Platform 5 preview that it all started to make sense. Because Platform 5 is not a huge clusterfudge of a pile of stuff that is all essentially the same thing.
      I wanted a theme, (WHP), then I saw the options, "oh, well if I get this, then I have 'more'" as the lineup gave me the impression that I can get "the theme" -or- I can get the theme and the framework, along with the PSDs and similarly related assets. 
       
      Platform 5 doesn't do any of that at all, but rather say "Here I am, this is going to be great!, Let's go!"

      Hello, everyone.

      As you're aware, I am in the process of writing the documentation for the Platform plugin as well as creating introduction videos for all sections.

      Although this is a rough draft of the video, it should give you some idea as to what to expect from them. Please check it out on the link below, please do not share the video, as it is a draft and contains some mistakes.

      Another idea for the section docs after they're finished was to add the following:

      A reference to the shortcode that generates the section, so you can quickly see the shortcode that generates that section. Like so:
      [pl_section section="boxes" id="Unique ID"] Another idea was to include some of the sections classes, as a reference:
      .pl-sn-boxes .box-title .boxes-pad .boxes-media .boxes-icon Let me know what you think of these ideas and the video please.

      I just inherited a site that is currently using a child theme of Platform Pro. Is there any sort of documentation to help me navigate the folders? It's not structured by what I am used to and there are a lot of files that I can't find or hooks that I have no idea where I can edit.

      So far I've found this (via google search, not from a link on your site):
      http://docs.pagelines.com/
       
      I've also found the Scribd Pagelines 2 doc, but it seems to be a basic guide.
       
      Is the doc.pagelines.com information up-to-date?
       
      It seems to have more detail, but it's unclear if it's up-to-date info. I'd suggest dating the documentation so people know what's current.  Is there a PDF version of this documentation? I'd like to be able to download, read offline and search it too like the Scribd doc. 
       
      Lastly, in my opinion the DOCS should be available using via the SUPPORT area in your nav menu on the main site.
