Converting to PageLine Framework

Recommended Posts

Have gone through several customizations of e-commerce (getshopped)'s shopping cart. Do not want to lose that if I change the site over to PageLines.

 

Anyone have any experience with cart changes on upgrade - have already installed WP 3.5 - but have not updated PlatformPro - am considering installing PageLines 2. whatever instead.

 

Site has to go live in about a week - afraid I won't be able to get a lot of it working properly.

What exactly am I to do with all of the customizations that are in Base?

 

Help - thanks!!

Hi there,

 

I would advise you to check out http://support.pagelines.me/docs/getting-started/migrate-from-platform-to-framework/ as it will answer a lot of the questions about upgrading and the css/database being retained etc.

 

The good thing is that the Pagelines Framework will install as a new theme, so you can switch back to Platform Pro if you're experiencing problems until you can resolve them. The css alterations for getshopped will be the same as the selectors/id's will be related to the plugin, not platform. I would advise you to make a complete back up and save a copy of your css prior to making any changes.

 

We'll leave this thread open for you in case anyone has info or experience on the specific plugin you mentioned. If you have any questions let us know.

CSS Changes

While developing the framework, it is very difficult to prevent CSS changes from happening once in a while during upgrade. With PageLines, there were a few changes to markup (e.g. using ‘section’ as opposed to ‘div’ elements in some cases). This has caused a few issues.

Solution: The minor CSS problems can be fixed easily by correcting your custom CSS rules to align with the new elements.

 

Not a clue how to do this - do I have to use firebug to find the name of each related element?

 

Section Control

To improve the functionality of Section Control, we had to change the way its data was stored in the database. Therefore section control options are removed during upgrade.

Solution: Simply set these options again and you are good to go.

Same with above - thought I had read that there were no sections in PlatformPro - what am I changing and where?

 

Thanks!

Hi Scoop

 

Yes if you have made previous css customizations and you want to replicate them in the Pagelines Framework then you would have to use firebug to find the name of the element you want to adjust and then apply the css to it. If you haven't made any css customizations you wont' have to worry.

 

You had sections in platform pro, like boxes, features etc, therefore you'll have to set the controls for these sections again inside the framework. Like setting the transition speed for the slider for example.

      Hi there,
      I'm a big fan of Pagelines, and have been for years.
      I'm trying to control the size of video embeds and having some difficulty. I see that I can just paste the Vimeo video URL into the post and an embed widget will automatically appear, which is great. But the embed box created is much taller that the video (689 x 1000 pixels) so the content sits in the middle of a tall black box, which looks awkward.
      I tried using the full iFrame embed code from Vimeo, which solved the disproportionate embed frame size (or aspect ratio) issue, but despite specifying the dimensions I want (690 x 388), the videos displayed on the post are sized at 300 x 150 pixels.
      I can't work out how to change either.
      I'm using the latest version of Pagelines Framework (Pro) with the Agency them.
      Any help or advice very much appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Dougal

      2 year DMS Framework Dev Member here:
      Nothing is saving on our websites, our Key is no longer registering, emails have gone unanswered.  The DMS theme seems to be overall malfunctioning.   I just want it to work like it worked last week again please. Also, based on our your website is looking, it's also falling apart. Please Advise ASAP!  Our clients have a much shorter temper with us, because we actually offer a way to contact us.  We have reinstalled the latest theme over and over.

      Please Note: Recent software such as DMS is not affected by this security advisory.   Three days ago we were alerted by Securi via email that there were a couple of problems with two of our legacy themes, namely PlatformPro and PageLines Framework.
       
      We take security seriously, so we wasted no time updating the free versions of these themes on the WordPress Repo and updating the pro versions over here at pagelines.com
       
      The following versions of the two themes have been patched and are available from your account area right now.
       
      PlatformPro 1.6.2 [download]
      PageLines Framework 2.4.6 [download]
       
      If you are using the free versions of the two themes available on wordpress.org, those files have also been patched.
       
      PageLines 1.4.6 [download]
      Platform 1.4.4 [download]
       
      In all cases you should see an update available in your WordPress admin area and should update right away.
      In the event that you cannot update the theme we took the time to create a small plugin that will protect your site.
      The plugin will work with all versions of both themes, just install and activate it for immediate protection.

      I can activate Framework 5.0.2 as stand alone theme ok. I get dashboard notice 'You need PageLines Connect' which is superseded by pl-platform - connect plugin.
      If I activate pl-platform 5.0.3, I get the 'total_pages' js error mentioned in pl-platform 5.0.2 plug and can't load Extend.
      I loaded PageLines Platform Developer 0.5.1, and dev loads ok.
