Cannot update to 2.4.3 in multisite

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I am having a problem updating to 2.4.3 on one site in a WP multisite install.

The site I am having the issue with is: innerspaceyoga.ca

The multisite install is on: gastownwellness.com

 

I have had no problems in the past updating the site.. now, when I log in to the dashboard on innerspaceyoga.ca, I am told to update, and when I click the update now, I am brought to the dashboard on gastownwellness.com, but it says that all my themes are up-to-date..

 

I am wondering what is going on, and how to get this updated.

 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

You have to be logged in on the main network site and a network admin. If not download the zip and upgrade manually via FTP

Hi.

Thanks for the reply.

I am logged into the main site, as an admin, and it is showing that PL is at 2.4.2, however in my updates, it is saying at all themes are up to date.

Why would this be happening?

 

Also, I do not see the PL base theme in my themes folder via ftp (of the main network site).  If I simply replace the Pagelines folder there with a fresh download of the new version, am I going to have any loss of styling or customizations that I have made via the PL admin on the child site? (I am using PL Base theme for that site)

Thanks again and in advance.

child sites and main network sites all share the same theme files. How can you have a child site with different folders?

Yes, sorry.. I do not have a child site with different folders.. I just meant that I don't see the Base theme in the themes folder on the ftp.

Sorry, just to clarify..

I will not lose any data or added plugins or sections (on my child site) if I replace the Pagelines folder in the themes folder via ftp on my multisite install?

And can anyone tell me why PL wouldn't be updating and showing as up-to-date in my WP admin dashboard?

Thanks!

Hi,

 

You should have one, central WordPress installation to be running multisite correctly. Then, child themes can be located elsewhere. Data is not stored in a child theme. Instead, data is stored in the database, including settings for both WordPress and PageLines Framework.

 

Customizations, such as hooks, CSS, LESS, etc. may be added to child themes, and thus any customized child theme that is overwritten may lose the customizations.

 

If you replace Wordpress files in your core installation, you will not be overwriting WordPress settings unless you actually reinstall it.  Similarly, if you replace PageLines files, in the core installation, no settings will be lost. 

 

Your child themes can be replaced, but when you do, the style.css or style.less, functions.php and any customized sections or languages are at risk of being replaced and their content lost. Thus we do not recommend replacing child theme files.

      I am working on a multisite installation and had some questions regarding the themeing options. All the sites will have the same structure but each individual site would need a different h1 font and link color. I had originally thought that I would program/edit the parent theme to have a certain set of templates, font sizes, etc. and then that would feed to all the individual sites where I could activate the child theme and use the child theme to define the individual sites' specific link color, heading fonts, etc. So, what I was shooting for was:
      Parent theme = shared by all sites
      Child theme = specific to the minor customizations on a per site basis.
      Is this possible? Am I misunderstanding how these would actually deploy to the different sites?

      I have a grandfathered dev account and am unable to activate subsites on my multisite network.
      Tried disconnecting and reconnecting account. Only main site is shown as activated.
      Since pro activation has been off and on for subsites I added code to hide the pagelines watermark (bottom left image/link). Could that be flagging the account not to activate or something?
      Network is on AWS Elastic Beanstalk, is there a port that needs to be open for authentication?

      Hi, I'm looking to make the move to multisite with MultilingualPress instead of using WPML.
      I was able to configure Wordpress to work in multisite mode, to get MultilingualPress to work and have pages in both language that I want. I can make changes to my primary language pages in Pagelines, but in the secondary pages (other language), any changes I make are not saved. When I click on save it looks as it is saving but as soon as I reload the page all changes are gone.
      So am I missing something that I should do to get Pagelines to work in multisite mode? I get that PageLines Platform 5 need to be activated in network mode, I've tried to activate the other plugins & themes in network and individually on the sites.
      Tx

      Hi.
      I have multisite installation: www.udf.org.br (master) and Mapping Domain plugin to work with different domains: www.deusprovedor.org.br, www.fenolar.org.br and www.penselaranja.org.br.
      In the other domains inside multisite, Pagelines files has been blocket by Cross-Origin Resource Sharing policy.
      I use domain name in wp-admin ex.: www.deusprovedor.org.br/wp-admin (not www.udf.org.br/deusprovedor/wp-admin).
      Any ideias how i fix this?
