all theme settings empty and custom css vanished after domain change

Recommended Posts


I hope you can help. All settings, the custom css, analytics code and so on vanished in the platform pro settings.
What have I done? I made a domain change - ok, i tried it!
What I have done:
- logged in ftp, created a new file "marcborries"
- took the whole existing wordpress files and put them in "marcborries"
- open the wp-config.php and edit:

define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://www.my-new-domain.de');
define('WP_HOME', 'http://www.my-new-domain.de');


- wordpress login is positive, all pictures, post and site-content are fine

- with search and replace I changed all my-old-domain.de in my-new-domain.de

- i went to front-end: its terrible, no header-logo, only chaos

- I take a look in the platform pro settings: all vanished


- with search and replace I changed all my-new-domain.de in my-old-domain.de

- took the code out of the wp-config.php, but the same problem: settings and css vanished


Please help!!!

      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I know this is not an easy problem. Maybe there is a easy solution.
      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi Pagelines team and wider community,
      I am looking to develop a single post page for my blog. I have read over an old article on the subject, however the link provided on achieving this goal was giving me security warnings. Is there any way I can get round this?
      Secondly, I have had a root around the .zip file provided on my sites backup, however was unable to locate any file in there with the name of Single.php. Does this file exist in the Pagelines theme?
      By the way, this is the unsafe article: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/create-a-custom-page-template/ (Click at your peril).
