Transfering site, not all files appeared to move

I am trying to move a copy of a pagelines website to a dev environment.  I have followed the tutorial here:

http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Migrate_PageLines_from_Another_Site

 

I have exported and imported the xml files for wordpress

i have exported and imported the dat file for pagelines - when exporting/importing I selected all check boxes.

 

Problem #1:The new dev site does not look correct.  The CSS does not appear to be working correctly.  I used the Custom Code section in Pagelines admin to make changes.

 

Problem #2: none of the Banners or Boxes seemed to move over. 

 

Any help on this would be appreciated.

 

correct site (export) http://rainbowtutoring.org/

 

new dev site (import)

Hi there, once you've imported you should see your new settings take affect.

 

Try going to settings>permalinks and don't make any changes, just click save to flush through the links.

 

Check all your images have copied over, at the moment it looks like the default images are there.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Have you definitely imported your settings file? Can you see your own boxes/features when you look in the admin area?

Thanks for your response.  did the following changes, no improvement

 

- checked the permalinks - I did change them anyway to postname, same as live

- I moved all the art files over previously - wp-content/uploads/

- no , there are no boxes/features on the admin side.  it appears they didn't port over

I would say do the DB import again, it seems like it didn't go through, the css and settings seem to have worked as it's placed in the boxes and feature slider in the correct areas on the page, just the content that hasn't gone in.

Thanks.  I'm almost there.  I reimported, and that seemed to add the missing content. 

 

The only remaining issue I see is the color css on the nav buttons -- the dropdowns work, and it appears the css is working across the site.  just the nav isn't working.  Any ideas?

Hi,

 

The issue with your menu styling is that your menu items have different IDs.

 

For example, 

 

http://rainbowtutoring.org/ = The Services menu item has an ID of 190 ~ http://cl.ly/image/3n0k3f2p031O

 

http://dev.rainbowtutoring.org/dev/ = The Services menu item has an ID of 1652 ~ http://cl.ly/image/3k033l233e2R

 

You will need to find the correct ID for your menu items on your dev site and the issue should then be resolved.

      The images are forced into a boxed frame so that you can't see the whole picture. Doesn't look so good. Is this a bug? A feature? How can I fix it?

      The recent WP update seems to be quite cheeky...messing about with a number of things. 
       
      Having trouble with boxes displaying differently in different browsers.  1st screen shot is Chrom...looks ok. 
      2nd screenshot is Firefox...colors are different. Icons are different. Have weird 1000's next to the icons. Any idea what's going on? 
       
      Thanks!!

      Someone reported this little bit of weirdness to me today. They were using Internet Exporer. I used an emulator, and I received the same result. Please see the attached.
      The website is richcruzchicago.com.

      Everything was fine with my site.
      Suddenly, strange characters are appearing in Boxes. See image. Site page is here. I even tried to add a new Boxes section but the same thing keeps happening, so I deleted the new section.
      How can I resolve this?
      Your help is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you.
