Issues Upgrading from PL 2.2.1 to 2.3.8 (running WP V3.4)

5 posts in this topic

Doing an upgrade on another site. The upgrade works but my custom CSS seems to be affected. Checkout the attached. Note the widget titles. There are probably other CSS glitches....


I have reverted back to the original version of the site:

Hi there.


Looking through the changelog there's been quiet a few changes between 2.1.6 and 2.3.8, you might find there are some minor css elements which require updating. However it doesn't seem that we've amended anything relating to the sidebars or widgets during this time


The images you've linked are coming up quiet small so i can't really see the differences. Are you able to upload a higher resolution. If you compare the css bewteen the original site and the updated version you might be able to see where the change in the layout is.

Hello @James B: My issue is clearly with CSS. The widget Title's CSS has changed with the upgrade (h3.widget-title). This is not the first time this has happened to me with a PL upgrade. It's maddening inasmuch as it pretty easy to miss a succinct visual change when doing a platform upgrade. Even more disturbing is that the changelogs do not seem to reflect any changes in CSS. Why would one change styling selectors when doing a platform upgrade? It's fine as long as custom.css is not involved.


Anyways, I have no choice... Do the upgrade.... and then hunt and peck for little tweaks that may need to be done... ("minor css elements"). It's just messy, and really not needed.


:growl: (I am  :D inside).

Hi WebWerx,


The images you have attached are super tiny and I am unable to see the issue.


We apologise that you have encountered an issue, but we do recommend users keep their sites up to date to prevent any issues. I will resolve this topic.

Hey @Danny: Ya they are small because of the size limitations of the Forum upload.... Sorry. As mentioned above, my issue appears to have been caused because of a change in CSS selectors in the core code. If I didn't do so much customization, this issue would probably have never surfaced and the upgrade would have been flawless.


Keeping a site updated with PL updates is useless if you guys change your CSS selectors along the way..... Just sayin'.....

    • How to update to DMS 2?
      By Mark_Hazeldine
      I might be missing something very obvious, but how do I update my Pagelines DMS theme to DMS 2? When I go into my Wordpress 4.2.2 dashboard, no DMS updates are available, yet when I go into the theme preview, it says I have version 1.1.1. Aren't you on like v2.1 now or something?
      Thanks, Mark

    • Website Issues after Updating PageLines
      By gwbodywork
      I just updated to the later version of Pagelines & Wordpress 3.7.1 and it screwed up my website. In particular the Features panel now repeats down the page and after hours of working to resolve this my only solution is to turn off Features (which I've done on the Home Page but not the other pages).
      Additionally, my Fixed NavBar no longer shows the Sub Pages on my site to navigate to. I have also been working on this with no success. This is the second time upgrading to your newest version has created more work and hassles than providing any additional solutions. 
      Deeply Frustrated!
    • DMS upgrade requires write access?
      By hajobakker
      After upgrading to dMS 1.1, the following message appears in the Wordpress dashboard:
      It appears your WordPress install can't write to your servers file system. This may adversely affect your sites performance. Check with your host about resolving this issue. To hide these notices, visit PageLines options panel.
      What's this, all of a sudden DMS needs to write and does not state where and why? Strange!
