So know that DMS is here, is my Developer License still valid with it? I've had developer license for 2 years now. Do i have to purchase another DMD Developer account now too??

My understanding is if you purchased your dev licence up to one month before DMS release OR you had a valid monthly Pagelines Plus account, then you would be graced with a new DMS licence.

For what it's worth, I had just bought the pro version a few weeks before DMS launch, so I was covered. I also had paid my first monthly Plus payment so I guess I was covered twice! BUT, my new upgraded free for one year DMS Pro or should I say business account. Only allows me up to 6 installs of DMS. As I see it, I have a choice...

I can either moan about not having more that 6 installs and stick with it, and pay the annual renewal, or I can think about the future, write off what I invested a month ago, and upgrade to pro using the discount coupon (which doesn't yet work).

I will probably wait until things settle down, then ask to upgrade to pro with unlimited sites etc. with discount code it's only $27 each month.

I also believe any existing accounts that were not upgraded gratuitously are still valid for the existing licence. But I don't think you'll ever get any changes. The new way forward is DMS.

Should Pagelines keep close to their current member base - yes
Should they be sending emails out saying what the issues are - yes
Are a lot of members annoyed and or frustrated - yes
Is DMS missing some vital demos, how to tutorials, and functionality - yes

We all have a choice. Sometimes we don't like the choices...

Cheers

thanks for the info. i think i'll just do the upgrade as well once the dust settles. here's another one for ya...

 

What happens to all of my Sections and Plugins that I have purchased for the Pagelines Framework? Will they still work in DMS? Are they completely useless now? This troubles me b/c I have purchased quite a few items from the Store and spent a good deal of money, do i have to purchase again???

adamspoon24,  your previous plugins and sections will continue working in Framework and will be free for DMS, once their developers have updated the products to DMS.  Not all have finished conversions.  Unfortunately, a few have chosen to wait till the launch to make adjustments.

Your Framework Pro version allowed you to create sites you owned in unlimited number.  The DMS license you now have allows you to create 6 site, whether you own them or not.  You can, of course, upgrade to a Developer's license, for unlimited sites by writing to hello@pagelines.com, but if you do, I'd wait a few days as we sort out many of the current load.

What about if I have the Developers license? I'm a bit confused. I downloaded DMS and installed it on a test site. But when I go to upgrade to Pro Version it asks me for Auth Key which I don't have. And I can't sign in anywhere. Is this all due to the problems that have been going on?

Everything previously purchased should be accessible via http://launchpad.pagelines.com

 

I think they're working on, or have worked on, a solution for upgrades to DMS, allowing the plugins and sections to work.

 

I'm still unclear how one gets those sections to show up in DMS if they're not already showing.  Yes, I'm learning just as you are.

Okay, developer license, pro license.. doesn't matter.  If the Framework license was purchased with a PLUS subscription that was maintained, you're getting DMS, free.  If you did not purchase a PLUS subscription, but you did purchase Framework in any level of license, on or after June 15, 2013, then DMS is free.

 

However, if you purchased a product earlier than June 15, 2013 without PLUS, you'll have to purchase a DMS license if you want to use developer, pro or basic benefits.  You can still get it, free, from the homepage of our website at http://www.pagelines.com

      Hi everyone,
      Flywheel have reported errors on my clients site 'www.racewaredirect.co.uk' and it's not loading. Can someone please provide some information on how to fix this? The site has never experienced these issues before.
      Thanks,

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.

      Hi
      I found this topic
      which talks about a similar issue I am having, but a little different. Hope someone can help me out.
      Best way to see the problem is to view http://cassclayton.com/ on Safari (Mac) compared to Firefox or Chrome. You will see the banner just under the fixed menubar has a gap between the menubar and top of the banner. Looking at Inspector, I found:
      <div class="fixed-top-pusher" style="height: 62px;"></div>
      <script> jQuery('.fixed-top-pusher').height( jQuery('.pl-fixed-top').height() ) </script>
      and indeed it seems the jquery is not always working consistently. For instance, if you simply refresh the page in Safari, it will loose the gap and all looks fine, so is it a browser cache issue that is interacting with the jquery? I do have W3 Total Cache installed. There must be a way to tell the code to make sure jquery is up and running and available to do it's majic?
      And perhaps there is just a better way to do this banner? Originally I tried several DMS sections and used the banner image as background, etc... Kept running into problems with resizing and the left/right parts of the image were getting chopped off. It is important the whole image show, so currently I just use a NextBox section with this code:
      <img src="[pl_site_url]/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/CassClayton-blues-tribute-banner.jpg" width="100%" />
      and it looks the way it should. Is there a better way to place a banner graphic under a fixed navbar and make sure the whole banner graphic displays regardless of screensize?

      I have a client of whom has taken un-authorized copy of my pagelines installations, configs, and licenses and placed on new server un-accesable to me.  I do not want this client using any part of my page lines membership and products.
       
      Please help me figure out how to de-activate the membership connection and license usage for their site.
       
      Thanks,
      Gary
