Before performing any kind of update, i.e update to Wordpress, plugins or your theme, you should always backup your site just as a precaution. You should also speak to your web host provider and see if they perform daily backups too. If anything goes wrong, you know that you can contact your host and ask them to perform a restore.


Also depending on what version of PageLines you're using, the update shouldn't cause you any problems. I have provided you with a link to our changelog so you can also see the changes made in the recent update.



Please search our forums, before posting!

Hi Danny,


Thanks for your response. I use BackupBuddy on all my sites to regularly perfom backups.


I am using the WPMUDev Membership plugin to protect my content, and other plugins... Do I need to deactivate all my plugins before updating to PL2.4?

Hi Danny, All good.

I did my backup... then just went ahead and did my update; left all plugins active.

      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.

      Here's the site, but that's not what it's suppose to look like. I tried to log in but the theme was crashed. I then went into the DB and changed the theme to WP 2013. I assume that by updating the pagelines theme all will be well again. I've downloaded DMS 2.2, but I don't know how to install that. Please help. I need to communicate with the 100's of people who've signed up in the last week. Thanks.
