Features - showing Pagelines - promos!?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had this issue.

I used defaut-features but changed all of the images and deleted the defautl ones about 1 1/2 years ago.

Now suddenly twice in the same week - three or 4 standard pagelines images have reinserted themselves into default-features.... even tho they had already been deleted twice.

I just had to go through every page and change the name of the feature being used so that if the images magically appear again - they won't show up on my pages.....!

 

This post is really just a warning to others not to use default features - it can come back to haunt you years later....

Hi Scoop,

 

A year and a half ago, PageLines Framework did not exist.  At that time, we had PlatformPro.  I'm presuming you have recently upgraded to Framework, and with the new installation, the default slides appeared.

 

Alternatively, if you had a bad installation previously a recent update might have caused the slides to default.

 

If your sides can still be found in Dashboard > Features > Features, then I'd recommend creating a new slider set, assigning the correct slides to the new set and assigning the new set to your posts or page via the settings options like Page Options or PageLines Meta Settings, depending on whether the sliders were site-wide or on individual pages.

I posted this in Platform pro.

Have not and do not plan to convert this site right now.

You told me to do what I wrote I had already done...

Actually you said you reinstalled the slides.  You never mentioned creating new features sets.  I was guiding you to do that, so that the slides are assigned to a different set.

 

Unfortunately, PlatformPro is a deprecated product and subject to continual breakdown due to upgrades in WordPress and WP back-end systems.  Without an upgrade to Framework I'd expect more and more things to breakdown regularly.  Shortly, we'll be compelled to cease supporting it. So my sincere recommendation is to upgrade as soon as possible.

Understood - thank you - sorry if i was unclear.

yes i created a new feature set and set it for every page.

I know you are going to stop supporting it - but i have a lot of customizations and can't risk it now as the client wants to go live on Wednesday.

Perhaps over the summer when there are fewer users I will have the luxury of taking it off line.

Have not updated to 1.6 for the same reason. Don't know what will not be compatible.

Plugins will likely not have any issues with 1.6 nor any previously created CSS.

 

However, WP 3.5 did create a number of issues that 1.6 fixed. I'd recommend updating that soon.

Thanks - will it mess with WP e-commerce?

3.5 certainly did!

Downloaded 1.6 - do I have to download & update Base as well?

Was one of the problems with 3.5 uploads being inconsistent?

Hi Scoop.

 

You only had to update 1.5.x to 1.6.  PlatformBase was not updated, so nothing to do there.

 

WordPress made major changes with 3.5.  PlatformPro 1.6 adapts to meet that challenge.  I don't believe PlatformPro 1.6 will affect WP-Commerce. The updates were only related integration with WP 3.5, not to CSS or layout. 

 

I've not heard of WP3.5 causing inconsistent uploads.

Yes - thanks - was replied to in Plus. Did update - went smoothly and made a big difference in Pro - did not help my upload issue - all who look at it think it is a host server issue.

That's quite possible. Were you uploading large size files?

It wasn't actually visible this end.

 

Have you checked with your hosting company to see if they have any file upload limits in place?

      Is there a way to use the whole image in the feature slider as a link? I have searched the forum and noticed in 2011 this was posted and the reply was no. Has anything changed in 4 years?

      I'm using features on the landing page of my website. My issue is that when the page loads the feature slider will resize itself every time. I've tried to tinker around with the layout of the site (static, responsive, %, px) and with the source images (not to big, the actual size) but it doesn't help. Any tips? 
       
      Here's a video of how it looks:

      The features images are not displaying properly. The first image is blank and the second displays this script: if (document:)document.getElementbyld("divcb6b4a52").style.height = (441-440)+"px";
       
      There should only be 8 images to display, but it adds two images before that are blank and have that text I indicated.

      Hello 
       
      We've recently added the top rated Word Press translation tool WPML to our Website in order to translate our site into a second language. Everything worked like a charm, except one thing: the PlatformPro features. 
       
      Our home page was designed in English with the features slider and some text, using what is now the Select Feature-Set for Posts & 404 Pages option so that we could custom create our features. The features are tagged as default-features so that they may be selected to appear in the scroll. The thing is, we cannot translate them. 
       
      Can someone please help me figure out a work around please?
       
      Many thanks
