CPTs (Features/Boxes/etc.) vs. Pagelines Post/Page Meta Settings

Recommended Posts

Hey Pagelines,

 

This is just a small idea I'm putting up for some thought. I am developing client sites with Pagelines Framework with the intent that they manage and develop it all themselves. In Pagelines > Site Options > Advanced, you can choose the user role that can access Post/Page Meta Settings and the Custom Post Types (Features, Boxes, etc.). Now, the problem is that my clients (set to "Editor" user role) don't need access to the Post/Page Meta Settings, they only need to access the CPTs. However, I have to grant them access to the Post/Page Meta Settings in order for them to be able to use the CPTs properly (Post/Page Meta Settings disappear for the CPTs if not granted access to the Post/Page Meta Settings). As we know, the CPT functionality is essentially null without the Post/Page Meta Settings.

 

My suggestion: let the CPT User Role include access to the CPT's Meta Settings as well and leave the Post/Page Meta Settings to decide access to ONLY the Pagelines Settings for Post/Pages.

 

Cheers,

 

Dave

Dave,

 

Thank you for that insightful, thoughtful suggestion.  I'll pass it to my management immediately, for consideration by our development team.

      Hi Folk,
      Can anyone help me please.  On a page on my site I placed an 'embed section' and inserted code from the Eviivo Booking system that seems to call scripts from their site.  After doing the PL5 editors will not load so I can't edit anything.  Is there anyway of disabling the section so I don;t have to rebuild the page?
      Thanks.

      Please see screenshot. I think it should be self-explanatory.

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.
      -Matt

      Hi,
      When using the editor I am getting duplicate wordpress toolbars and an a nice error to go with it...
      I have them stack 4 high at one point.  Goes away with a refresh then re-appears.
      very odd.

      Hello there,
      We have started experiencing a crippling issue within the last few days. It seems that ever since three days ago the CSS will not load for our pages outside of the DMS editor. Inside of the editor everything appears to be looking fine, but after publishing and viewing the page in a new browser our elements are all over the place, and in the console it appears that there is an error stating that the CSS did not get loaded. Looking through FTP, it seems that the two CSS files in the pagelines folder in wp-content are now missing. We did not access this folder or modify any files prior to this.  What kind of problem could this be? We are totally halted on any work we can perform until this is solved, so any help would be greatly appreciated. 
      An example of the phenomenon: http://datesafe2.21thirteenhost.com/category/ask-mike/
      Best,
