site:> http://tinyurl.com/n3jt7up    pagelines frameworks version: unsure.  unable to login to my account via dashboard> 

 

Ok, so im trying to set up a one simple page which maybe a carousel and some text info, something like this http://tinyurl.com/mqwsycf. that's it. Just a simple page for a property which I've done many times before.

 

For some reason I cannot get the NextGen to work, as in unable to add any images(nothing shows up); it appears I'm in some kind of blog template(which i dont blog or use). The template of the top shows "blog". What? I also entered some text on the page  and I cant even see the text. and yes, the text is white against a black background.

 

I had recently changed host providers to bluehost, which by the way crashed and burned today. So I downloaded the wordpress script bluehost has they only have one on their site). Will this be a blog download sort of thing?  and by the way, if you check this site and cannot get access to it, then bluehost is still down since forever.

 

I know this is most likely user error but can someone tell me what is going on?

 

I had try to update the pageline version by trying to go onto my account by was told by hello@pagelines.com that some people were unable to login due to a hacking issue some time last week. So does that mean I cannot update the version. I wonder if I'm having issues because of it.

 

Also, like many others was checking DMS. On the front page it reads, "get DMS now, its free" but the pricing starts at $8.00/month. What am I missing? what's free?

 

Can someone help me?  :(

 

sorry for long description of issue.

Hello Chisim

 

Wordpress sets your home page to display blog posts - this can be changed in Wordpress > Settings > Reading.  If your first page is set to display posts the template will be the blog template. change this to display a static page.  This is a Wordpress standard setting and the documentation is here http://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_Reading_Screen

 

This should explain the Nextgen issue too. Nextgen is a 3rd party plugin and the Nextgen gallery documentation is here http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/help/

 

Your bluehost site was down as all Bluehost sites are down today http://mashable.com/2013/08/02/bluehost-down/

 

 

With regards DMS > DMS is free to use. You can also purchase a subscription for extra features - you can see more here http://pagelines.com/pricing


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works. 

 

Please do not send me private messages. Occam's razor - The principle states "Keep things simple!"

  Hi Martin, 

I was able to switch to static and worked. thanks. 

 

For some reason the links that are provided w/your response reads: " you cannot view the hidden content" [This is in red]. Thus, i was unable to go where you wanted me to go.

 

Also, I was unable to attach any files on this response. Whats up w/that?

 

so,  In response to your reply about DMS, I am still not sure I get it, Is DMS free to build the sites and then a subscription for technical support?

Do I have to upgrade? or can I keep my pagelines frameworks and then also download and use DMS and use it separate?(which is most likely how I would like to keep it)

 

expecting your response,

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

The reason you can't upload is that we were hacked, and all uploads are currently discontinued.

 

If you want to include images, use a 3rd party service such as DropBox or, upload them to your media library, and include the URL or a masked one (as above) so that we can see the image.

 

You don't have to upgrade to DMS.  It is free, and the subscription isn't for support alone, but for full licensing of sections, plugins and other goodies that make your site look great.  Things like RevSlider, and many of the visual and backend improvements will only work with an active license and subscription. Yes, you can keep your Framework fully active, then download DMS and test it.  Kick the tires and see if it works for you before taking the plunge.
