Page{Less} Necessity Question

Recommended Posts

allenresha

I just purchased the plugin.  I feel that it just duplicates the editor already within DMS.  I thought the plugin was going to have a firebug/developer mode type setting that allowed for ease of selecting different elements of the site/page and allow for quick coding.  Let me know if I am doing this wrong.

 

(Starting Point) Frontend of website.

Click Custom Code in DMS Toolbar

Click PageLess

 

(Thanks in advance for help/support.)

Hi allenresha,

 

You're doing it right! It does not simply duplicate the editor already within DMS, although I can see how one might see that by experience.

 

In a nutshell, PageLESS lets you add custom LESS/CSS to any individual post/page/archive/404, etc.  The difference between PageLESS and the "stock" Custom LESS input that comes with DMS is that the core Custom LESS is GLOBAL - that is it loads the same code on every page.  PageLESS styles are only loaded on the page on which they are set on.

 

My apologies if you misunderstood the capabilities of the plugin.  Sorry if you made this purchase expecting something like firebug-like integration (that would be cool).  If you would please show me where you read/saw/heard that it did something like that, I would really like to know so that I can change that information to be more clear.

 

Thanks for YOUR support!

It was my own interpretation. Late night...lots of work. So that I understand the use for individual pages/posts/etc., if I am on a page/post/etc. then the changes made take affect on that page?

Cool, yeah that code is only loaded on that page (in addition to whatever else you have going on), but it's loaded last, so given the same specificity rules in PageLESS will take precedence.

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.

      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.
