Recommended Posts

lkiefer

I am new to WordPress and to Page lines DMS, so please be kind an patient....

 

I have successfully gotten WordPress and DMS working through my web host site (GoDaddy)...

 

When I attempt to upload a picture using the DMS uploader, I get an error message saying Upload failed...

 

I have tried multiple web browsers AND 3 different computers....no luck.

 

Any and all advice would be appreciated.

What error message are you getting when it fails?

On the Global Options tab of the DMS Editor "bottom of browser window" When I click on "Navbar" in the left column and I try to upload a navbar image for example, it tries to upload then fails. The upload indicator turns red and the message simply says upload failed.

 

I also had trouble uploading the DMS.zip file when I set this up, I had to go directly to my FTP site and upload it there. I am not sure if these are related, so I thought I would mention it.

I cannot upload any images anywhere for that matter. I just tried to upload a very small jpeg in site images and it gave the same error.

Your problem is that your uploads folder is not set up correctly.  The ownership or permissions are incorrect.

 

Contact your host and ask them to look into that for you, or guide you correctly.  Did you use some kind of installer for WordPress? Usually the installers don't give you ownership or set the permissions correctly.

 

You may simply have to re-install WordPress manually, which sounds much more painful than it is.

I think you hit the nail on the head.....That is my thought as well. 

 

I used the installer for WP on the GoDaddy web site. Its integrated into their site...

 

I did go through each folder to make sure I had permissions, however the folder naming does not match up to what I see on on the front end in WP or the DMS window.....This is a fresh install, so now's a great time for me to uninstall it and re install....I will post the outcome asap.

 

Thanks so much for your comments, I really do appreciate the help.

Please, you can try with

Extract the file dms.zip or dms-dev.zip in you PC 

and then upload the theme via FTP

 

The right folder is

wp-content / themes / dms

 

This resolved all my issues.

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Hello,
       
      I love the parallax option for the full width section. But unfortunately it will not work properly on my websites. I made an example here. Images used as comparison: lake & elephant.
       
      As you can see in the example, the lower part of the picture is showing up on top of the picture on default.
       
      Is this a known problem? An example site suggested bij Pagelines DMS: http://www.johntindel.com/ has the same problem (with the wooden background).
       
      On the other hand, the workspace themesite built does not have this problem: http://workspace.usingpagelines.com/
       
      Is there a sollution to this problem?

      Good morning.
      I have PageLines Framework Dev. installed. When I try to open pagelines.com/plus ad add plus to my account I end up getting an error message that says: "Payment failed: There may only be a single recurring product added for a given purchase."
       
      Please advise.
      Thanks.
