Do I need a child theme

Recommended Posts

Hi there, thanks for reading this.

 

I am wanting to figure out how to use DMS.

 

I am also wondering, I have pagelines theme on a self hosted wordpress blog, I do not currently have a child's theme.

 

Should I get one?

 

If so, how?

 

I am sorry if this seems like a basic questions but I can't figure it out!

 

Thanks again!

 

My website is wearflatstodinner.com

Presuming you're using DMS, the use of a child theme is detailed in our docs at http://docs.pagelines.com.

 

The child Base Theme is there to let you upload sections, languages, and modifications using hooks should you need them, outside the core installation.  This protects them from updates, that will overwrite them if they are in core folders.

 

It also enables you to copy your work over to the child theme, and port it, should you wish to, onto another site.

      How can I get support on pagelines DMS? The product isn't that old and my skeleton themes aren't working and I can't get support in the same way?

      I have a number of legacy websites that are running on the above version of Pagelines DMS, where the template has stopped working. I am using a skeleton theme to all of them. What do I need to do to rectify this.

      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.
