Template Drag'n'drop Doesn't Save

Recommended Posts

Hi,

When I try to add sections to Sidebar 1 using the drag'n'drop interface, the changes aren't saved. I've tried in three different browsers (cleared cache) and have deactivated all plugins with the same result. This problem just began occurring this afternoon. I am using the most current version of Pagelines. I am using the base theme. My site is http://dev.jamesbeach.com.

 

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Grant

Hi Grant,

 

If you have no plugins active and the problem still persists, it may well be a problem with either your server or Wordpress installation. However, would it be possible for you to enable PageLines debug mode please.

 

PageLines > Site Options > Advanced.

I have enabled debug. How could it be a problem with my wordpress installation or server if I have never had a problem till now?

Hi there, the only thing the debug is showing is that some plugins are still active. Were you doing anything specific this afternoon when you noticed this started happening? Installing anything or making and specific changes to the site etc?

The only plugin stil running is BackUpBuddy. Was not making any changes. I only had been trying to add about 20 cloned boxes to sidebar 1. What do I do to fix this issue? should I give you my login info to see if you can replicate the problem?

It could be that there is a conflict with backup buddy, I would say deactivate that as well to see if it has an effect.

 

If you could take a screenshot of your admin area (drag and drop) so we can see if anything is showing which is different from normal. And if possible take a video screenshot using jing - http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html then we can see what's happening directly.

 

The boxes section doesn't go into the sidebar though, do you mean widgets?

James-

I have deactivated BackUpBuddy and still no changes. I also did a video screenshot as requested: http://screencast.com/t/WNEhKwUdV6Aq Please watch the whole video as the error appears towards the very end. What's happening, why won't it work, and what can be done to fix it!?

Hi Grant

 

Yeah i see what you mean, they seem fine for so long then out of nowhere they vanish and the entire section is empty.

 

If you could leave the debug tab checked in Pagelines>site options>advanced, I will have to speak to one of our developer team and get them to watch the video to see what they suggest.

 

Other than the plugins have you added any scripts into the header/footer sections of the site via the custom code page?

 

The developer team won't be back in until tomorrow now, but as soon as I have spoken to them I'll post back with an update.

I have not added any scripts via the custom code page to the header/footer.

Just a thought, try upping your php memory to 256mb, your host can do this for you. This could be related to why the section is clearing itself.

 

Otherwise, I've left a message for one of our developers so as soon as I hear back from them with more info I'll let you know.

Hi James,

 

Tried upping my php memory to 256mb, however the result is still the same. Please let me know as soon as you hear back as this issue is setting me back greatly in the development of a client's website.

Hi Grant,

 

Thanks for providing the video, but I am unable to recreate the issue. I have added the ContentBox and cloned it up to 20 times and moved the order of ContentBoxes around, added the Highlight section which is also cloned and move the order and I am still not able to get the same outcome as you.

 

As a test can you try disabling all third party sections such as the Facebook section you have active and try again, to see if you can recreate the issue and if possible record this one too.

 

Although, your video clearly displays some kind of issue, I fail to understand how this is slowing down the development of a clients website. Surely your Clients design doesn't require 20 or more cloned ContentBoxes ? If so, why not simply use the Text Widget?

Hi Danny,

 

When you say you are unable to recreate the issue, are you logging into my backend or are you trying to recreate the issue on your own install?

 

I disabled all third party sections and tried again with no success. The sections still vanish. As you requested I recorded it also. You can see the video here: http://screencast.com/t/7vXjFGiJZy

 

Please advise me as to what I can do to get it working properly.

Hi Grant, we've logged into the site and replicate what you've done on the video but even after 30mins its still not cleared the sidebar, the widgets remain in place :-(

 

Is there anything specific that tends to trigger it?

Nothing specific seemed to trigger it other than it just started happening the other day. As for me, I have already transferred all my files to a new sub-development domain of jamesbeach.com and am able to contribute development uninterrupted at this point.

That's good that you can continue working, its very strange though. I tried moving all the clones of the contentbox into the sidebar and kept moving them about, adding the other sections, going to a page, coming back etc. Just like in the video but they were still there. My colleague had the same result.

 

I'm still waiting to hear back from one of the other core developers to see if he knows anything else that could cause a template area to just reset like that. So I'll let you know what they say, fingers crossed it doesn't repeat this on the new test site.

      I've the dms free version from wp and I don't mange to upload no files. I've try to change the logo and to upload jpg-files as background of the sections, but when I reload the page every thing is gone! How can I solve this? See attachment

      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.

      Hello,
       
      I played with DMS last year, and half-completed a website, and now starting from scratch. Everything was going fairly smoothly, and then there started a couple glitches.
       
      I'm using google Chrome, and my website is DevoraKalma.com but I'm not sure that will help because there is hardly anything on there. I attached one screen shot. For this one: when I try to drag and drop a new item (like a nav bar or column) I either can't drag it at all, or the icon of the item will appear haphazardly on my layout somewhere and get "stuck" and can't be clicked on or altered, and then I have to reload the page.
       
      There is one more glitch, but I'll keep it to a separate question -- it's even weirder!
       
      My start up disk is almost full and I had to download google Chrome to work on the site, but... it was working just fine for like 8 hours, and then this started happening.
       
      Anything I can do?
       
      Thank You
      Devora

      I think my client may have done something to mess with the pagelines settings of their site.  Specifically the drag and drop feature, the heading will not let me drag other elements on top, only side to side.

      Hello,
       
      Like a lot of people, I have built my wordpress (version 4) website in it's own folder. Not the top level of the hosting server.
       
      The domain was still pointing to the old website also in it's own folder. While i was building the the new website, the IP address/folder(http://s446863904.onlinehome.us/WP) was pointing to the website i was building. I eventually pointed the domain (http://envymeremy.com) here.
       
      Thats when things got a little screwed up. Especially when I made the change in wordpress general settings.
       
      WordPress Address (URL): http://s446863904.onlinehome.us/WP
      Site Address (URL): http://envymeremy.com(formerly the same as above)
       
      So after fixing the 505 and 404 issues (editing the .htaccess file in top level of this website) that now follow changing the url, the first thing i noticed was that the fonts weren't embedding.
       
      In my child theme's css file, i had to change:
       
      @import url("../dms/style.css");
      @import url("fonts/stylesheet.css");
       
      TO:
       
      @import url("../dms/style.css");
      @import url('http://envymeremy.com/wp-content/themes/jayharry_theme-child/fonts/stylesheet.css');
       
      The pagelines font/symbols  for dropdown and slider arrows aren't loading.

       
      So now whats happening is, when I launch the dms editor, it goes to a page that "does not exist". I'm thinking thats because the homepage was http://s446863904.onlinehome.us/WPand is now http://envymeremy.com/.
       
      When i click on the links in the navigation (Home, about us, etc), it takes me to the page, but I don't get the dms editor with options to add anything, edit the sections or anything. Just the page as i would see it if i were not logged into wordpress.
       
      I'm using:
      wordpress 4
      DMS 2 with a child theme
      hosting: 1and1.com plan: 1&1 Unlimited
