No Icons for Quick Slider, Rev Slider, Revolution slider
I noticed this a while back but thought it happened back when there was security issues with the wordpress plugin revolution slider and thats why they disappeared, but thinking i was wrong now as mine are the DMS versions.
Basically, my front end editor is missing the icons for;
• Rev Slider
• Revolution Slider
• Quick Slider
What i've also noticed is a difference in how the menu tabs on the left hand side of the front end editor have changed. They were not styled like this before. Its like the css is off or something isnt quite right with the install somehow, somewhere.
Even though the icons are missing for the slider sections. I can still drag them onto my pages and configure them, to a certain degree anyway.
I tried adding the revolution slider to a page yesterday. But it wasnt responding to the way i had configured it. I choose a slide set for it to use and it took no notice. It just used every slide and every caption regardless.
Leaving the revolution slider behind i took a look at the rev slider. Adding the correct images is fine. But i don't get any captions showing when i set them? Tried a few different options but nothing.
Id like to know if my pagelines DMS 2 install is corrupt in anyway? Does anyone else's front end editor look the same as mine? Is anyone else missing the icons for the sliders and have no padding-right for the menu items?
Is anyone using any of the sliders at the moment without issues?
Im using the child theme 'Sophistique" which uses the revolution slider on the homepage. It works fine and its configured the way i want it using thh slide sets ive choosen so dont understand why it would be working inside the website.
Any advice or help is appreciated. Thank for your time guys. Ben
Placeholder.it for Carousel image breaking HTTPS
I have DMS2 installed and my site is being served over HTTPS. However, I am getting an error that a placeholder image for Quick Carousel (which is not a being used on any of my pages) is being served over http://
Mixed Content: The page at 'https://harqen.com/'was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure image 'http://placehold.it/45x45/f0f0f0/ccc'. This content should also be served over HTTPS.
How can I remove this?
Found it. It was the Recent Posts Widget that was calling this little devil. I have removed the reference and all is well in SSL land.
Can't add sections when Nextgen Pro is activated
It took me a long time to figure this out so I thought I'd share my experience. Maybe someone can verify or benefit.
NextGen is a popular gallery plugin. With the Plus or Pro versions, which have features you need, there is a second plugin called NextGen Pro.
With NextGen Pro activated, you can't add DMS sections, the DMS2 GUI just doesn't let you drag them. However, you can work with the sections that are already on the page.
With NextGen Pro DE-activated, its functionality breaks but you can add sections (e.g., ones containing the galleries you're creating).
Bottom line, workflow is
- leave the regular NextGen plugin activated
- deactivate the NextGen Pro plugin to add DMS2 sections
- reactivate the NextGen Pro plugin to configure your galleries and publish the site
Hope this helps.
Quick Carousel Breaking HTTPS
I just updated to the new theme and I am now getting errors on my HTTPS site that the quick carousel is trying to deliver content through HTTP.
Mixed Content: The page at 'https://harqen.com/'was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure script 'http://harqen.com/wp-content/themes/dms/sections/quickcarousel/caroufredsel.js?ver=98ab90'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.
Can you please help me correct this issue?
NextGEN Pro not working since upgrades
I recently upgraded Wordpress to 4.0.1 and DMS to the latest version. I also updated to the latest incarnation of the NextGEN Pro product, but now, having done all these changes, I don't see anything but white background on my home page, instead of a nice pro slideshow gallery.
I contacted NextGEN and they said:
Has the call to <?php wp_footer(); ?> added directly before </body>"
Is anyone able to help?
