I am currently having a strange issue...

 

When one takes a look here: http://fumitol.com/about/ you will notice that there is a mysterious edit button after my text about me.

 

I'm not sure what I have done to make this happen.

Hi there,

 

I'm guessing that's the result of a setting allowing anyone to edit.

 

Did you change the settings at Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Advanced under "Post/Page Meta" ?

 

The best settings for the first drop down is Author and for the second, Editor.

I just checked those settings and they are at the default (Author / Editor permissions). There is only one user, and that's me on this blog. 

 

I do notice that it is only this page that exhibits this behavior.

 

Thank you for your assistance so far.

Are you or have you used any sort of members/group type plugin?

These are the current plugins that are in use:

Contact Form 7

Disqus Comment System

Hello Dolly

Pagelines Sections

Really Simple CAPTCHA

Salebar

Ultimate Coming Soon Page

WP-PageNavi

 

Does this edit link show up even when you're logged out of the Dashboard?

 

Yes it does. I have even tried it on a friends computer that has never logged into the site.

 

Thank you again so far for the suggestions.

I think you should try deactivating all of these plugins to see if the problem persists.

I deactivated all of the plugins and still no dice.

I'm going to make a drastic suggestion. I'll understand if you don't want to do it.

 

1.  Go to WordPress.org and download the latest version of WordPress.  Unzip the file to your desktop.

2.  FTP to your site and on the desktop, open the folder.  Upload everything except the wp-content folder. When asked if you want to replace files and folders, say yes.

This will replace WordPress entirely.

 

3. Go to your Launchpad account. Download the latest version of PageLines Framework. Again, unzip the file to your desktop.

4. FTP to wp-content/themes and delete the pagelines folder there.  When you do, no settings are changed. All custom code will remain in place.

5. Upload the new pagelines folder on your desktop to wp-content/themes.

6. Make sure that your browsers are all closed.

7. Open a browser and see if that problem exists still.

 

If it is, then it's not the system.  It would have to be either a setting, a plugin or some odd thing with the server.

Just to re-iterate

Are you or have you ever used any sort of membership/group type plugin?

Just to re-iterate

 

I have never used a membership/groupings plugin as I have always ever had one person on that site.

 

HOWEVER, I did find one thing interesting. I created a new account, transferred posts to that account, deleted my old account, built a new account (for the same username I had before) and boom, the edit button was gone.

 

I still have no idea what was a part of my user that caused it, since every single bit of information remained the same. : /

 

I want to thank both of you for your assistance in this issue. If I find out what caused the issue re: the user account, I will be sure to post that information in the future.

I just encountered this problem on one of my profiles as well. An edit button is seen by a logged out user on one profile. Just like the person above, no membership plugins were used. All post/page meta settings are at their highest level as well(Administrator). This is occurring on the first profile on a clean Pagelines install. This doesn't occur on the second or third profile added to the site.

      Hello,
      I am working on a website that uses the normal Pagelines content section for the individual post pages. At the bottom of the pages there is built-in functionality that shows the title of the previous and next post so that users can navigate more easily.
      However, I would love to to change this and either make it say:
      << Post Title       add            Post Title >>
      or
      <<Previous        and           Next >>
       
      Is this possible? What would I need to do to accomplish this?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      Clicking on "Edit" brings me to top of page, does not let me edit or drag & drop section when trying to edit the Social Links section in the footer.
      Not sure what's happened, the section is now full-width and I can't edit it at all.
      Thank you for your help!

      Hi guys,
       
      Hopefully someone can help me out on this one, as I struggling to find a solution!
       
      This is definitely a DMS2/bbPress issue, as I have tried it on a fresh install with no plugins. If I try to edit a forum reply, I am getting a post excerpt instead of the bbPress front-end editor showing. The editor works ok for editing topics.

      The WordPress admin bar is also being corrupted on this page (see screenshot).[attachment=2680:Screenshot from 2015-03-11 14:00:46.png] 
       
      This is a shot of the 'Edit Topic' screen which does work. [attachment=2679:Screenshot from 2015-03-11 13:54:23.png]
       
      The 'Edit Reply' page shows fine in Twenty Fifteen wp theme.
       
      I am getting no errors logged in DMS of from wp-debug.

      Please help because this is driving me nuts!  :hot:
