Plus/minus sign not showing correctly on Collapser posts.

Recommended Posts


I'm having the exact same issue as this thread: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/25359-how-to-input-box-with-minus-sign-into-header/


Instead of the plus/minus image in my collapser posts, I get a broken image icon on mouse hover. It should be showing the more.png or less.png images located in /collapser/images/.


The op of the above thread said "it was resolved: plugins / themes / wrong path" which isn't giving me much to work with.

Line 38 of color.less has the following code:

        background: url("@{plExtendRoot}/collapser/images/more.png") 15px no-repeat;

and a similar line further down for less.png.


Do i need to do something to this? On my server, more.png is in [site I'm working on].com/wp-content/themes/pagelines/sections/collapser/images/more.png.

I haven't modified the section in any way. What am I missing here?

The first thing i see is that you are not using the proper PageLines section installer.
You are copying the section directly into the pagelines theme and this is so bad for 2 reasons.
1.- if you need to upgrade the Framework, all the contents in the themes/pagelines folder will be override.
2.- All the store sections need to be stored in the wp-content/plugins/pagelines-sections/ folder in order to keep the paths. so thats why the image path is wrong.
So, in order to fix the issue you need to remove the collapser section from the pagelines theme folder and install it via the store or copy the folder in the correct path.
Let me paste you the a text from the official docs:
Sections allow you to drag & drop professional web design into your site.
Install PageLines Sections Plugin
Before adding sections, you need to install and activate the PageLines Sections Plugin.
From your WordPress Administration Panel:
Select the “PageLines” panel, then “Store”
Select “Sections”
Click “Install it Now”
A black overlay appears showing “Plugin Installed” successfully”
You can now “Add Sections”

Thank you for the quick response. I will try this out as soon as I can and get back with the results.

Thank you for the detailed explanation! I already had the sections plugin installed but was not using it correctly and instead was placing all my extra sections in the wrong place, like you mentioned.

I've moved them to the proper directory and everything is working as intended. Issue resolved! Thanks again for the quick and detailed support!

      I want my separate tabs to stay open with the collapser flat plugin - they don't show up until you hover over them. Anyone know how to make all of them visible?Thanks

      Hi, I purchased your great product a while ago now. Really love it, but recently it has stopped working the way it was. I now have the text which are usually displayed on the inside of the box, now are being displayed on the outside. I have tried a reinstall of the plugin but nothing has changed. 
      I will now try disabling other plugins.. too see if there is a conflict. Any suggestions for help on the issue would be greatly appreciated!
      Thanks in advance!

      I'm trying to use Collapser with the Pagelines framework.
      its formatting poorly and looks weird in the backend as well.
      I'd like the white buttons to be the large rectangles they typically are. why are they so small and skinny?
      what should I do or test? I know sometimes there are bad versions of files floating around. is there a better Collapser version I should be using than the one that I've pulled from my Launchpad?

      New plugin "Collapser" crushes the site. After i installed plugin "Collapser" and F5 it shows
      white screen and text:
      "Fatal error: Cannot redeclare cmb_init() in /var/www/u6652787/data/www/euro-school.biz/wp-content/plugins/collapser/cmb/custom-meta-boxes.php 
      on line 53"
      How to make it work?
