Widgets Deactivated + Other features unresponsive

Recommended Posts



I am having a number of problems. I added one issue to the forums, but no one has responded there. It is getting more urgent by the minute.
1. widgets don't work at all.
2. Footer not working. I try to replace the pagelines icon in the foot and it does nothing.
3. Background: I attempted to reset the Header and Footer to default settings, but it reset ALL the global settings. That is a HUGE error in Pagelines. Now, I can't restore my background to supersized to fit the browser. 

Those are the most pressing at the moment, but they are pretty important. Please respond quickly.
thanks for your help.

I don't see any unanswered topics in the forum, but let me help you as best I can.  If you can point me to that link, I'll be happy to review and address anything I can.


The reset clearly says it resets all the settings, not header and footer settings only.  There's even a verification, which you may have clicked without reading. I'm sorry for that, but it's not a flaw in PageLines.


It's likely that the sidebars were removed from their settings. Go to Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop and click the SB 1 and SB2 and Wrap boxes, one at a time, making sure the proper sidebars are where they belong.  If not, add them back. Do the same with any sidebars you may have added to the other templates, making sure everything is where it belongs.


Then, go to Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets and you can add back any widgets that may have been displaced. Sometimes their order gets messy. This is fixed simply by sliding them up and down (not to the left).


You probably have a deprecated plugin causing the core problems. Deactivate anything you didn't get from PageLines or that came with WordPress (Akismet, Hello Dolly).

      In the footer of my website, I can't find where Leasing is located. I have to remove it.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      OK - folks - back with another nit... The "back to top" link works - BUT - it's only active (i.e. clickable with the associated action following) when the mouse-over hovers over the footer area of the page. I did a quick change of the z-depth (to -1) and nothing made a difference. Any thoughts on how to make the *entire* back-to-top icon hover-able/actionable? Thanks!

      hi all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      site with calendar :
      7 side with one event from the calendar :
      when I have my site on DMS2 it was working :-(

      Hi guys,
      I have been unsuccessfully trying to get my 3-column widgetized footer aligned centered. The widget section itself is aligned left because the alignment appears to be controller the widget's content only. The container that contains the widget section is aligned centered. I have chosen a 3 column layout and I added 3 widgets, assuming they would be aligned centered.
      Any idea of what I may be doing wrong?
