Hi folks,

 

Please post the name of any plugins you've tried, whether ours or someone else's, that don't work and include a link to its source. 

 

Tell us what happened when you activated it.

 

We'll use this list to check plugins but also you'll be helping everyone else to know what doesn't work. That's the kind of thing good neighbors do!

 

Thanks everyone, for your cooperation.

Hi Rob

The NextGen Gallery Plugin to version 2.0 don´t work fine on DMS, for example the upload image page of this plugin turn white, the same in Framework 2.4. with WP 3.6 and 3.5.2

 

In the mean time the solution is downgrade to the version 1.9.13

Here si the link to do this

Photocrati released 2.07 (NextGEN Gallery) this afternoon and that fixed (at least my issues) in WP 3.6 and Pagelines 2.4. However, you can't just update the plugin through the dashboard. You have to follow the directions at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/do-not-uninstalldelete-nextgen-if-you-are-having-issues.

 

You will have to FTP the update onto the server.

Shortcodes Ultimate conflicts with the CSS Less editor and while you can open it, it doesn't allow you to add any custom code.  

 

I swapped with the "Wordpress Shortcodes" and it works with zero conflicts.  I know there is supposed to be some free plugins (including shortcodes plugin) on the Pagelines store that is compatible with DMS...can't wait for that!

Hi there,

 

Not sure if you'll be able to do anything about it but I use this plugin quite alot on a site I am converting:

 

Responsive Flipbook

 

http://codecanyon.net/item/responsive-flip-book-wordpress-plugin/2372863?WT.ac=search_item&WT.seg_1=search_item&WT.z_author=mpc

 

It's great for responsive books that work on touch screens.  It's built on jQuery though and doesn't like DMS at all!

 

Stops the Custom CSS/LESS saving on the Visual Editor, although this is the only DMS issue I have found with it activated.  However, the books don't render at all.

 

On Chrome, the book never loads and each page of the book is added as an image in a long list down the page.

 

On FireFox the book tries to load but it flashes from the small version to the bigversion of the 1st page back and forth indefinately.

 

Would love it if you could figure it out, but don't expext you guys to be working on compatibility of every plugin someone mentions.  I can however give you a copy to work with if you'd like?

 

Cheers

 

Stuart

When enabled it prevents things like the NavBar & MediaBox from saving. I am not sure what the actual issue is.

I'm adding the PageLines Section plugin to this list. It is NOT to be used in DMS. It's known to cause major issues with DMS child themes, and their style.less files not loading. DO NOT use this on DMS.

The Slider Revolution plug-in from CodeCanyon works. While you can put the code on a page or loop, I've found the most effective way to implement it in DMS is to enable it in the Widget area, e.g. under Full Width Sidebar, drag and drop a new section on to your page, and then drag and drop the Widgetizer on to the section, then set it to Full Width Sidebar. Then you have a drag and drop version of Slider Revolution available in DMS. 

 

Widgetizer rocks. 

 

One word of caution: once you have implemented the section, grabbing it (e.g. to move it) while testing (e.g. pushing one of the slider buttons) in the Visual Editor can result in crazy shenanigans. This happened by accident (while testing) and I just refreshed out without saving.

Accordy Slider is not functioning properly. 

2 out of 10 slides available. I have contacted the plugins developer and am confident that he will push an update for the plugin once Pagelines allows access. If anyone has estimates on when that will happen it would be helpful thanks.

Rob Thomas, I'm not seeing the full width sidebar widget under my widgets. Is this a section that must be purchased? I'm having alot of problems getting the revolution slider setup. The height of the area when set to full width in the revolution settings is enormous and not sizing to what I have in the settings box.

The plugin "Page Links To" brakes DMS.

When "Page Links To" plugin is activated, and I have redirected at least one Post using the plugin's feature, the DMS' modular drag and drop system no longer works.  Instead, all I see is the vertical text of the DMS modular titles.

 

Thank you all for the amazing help and support in this forum.

This is not exactly a wordpress plugin but it is an extension for Chrome that is causing issues.

 

Adblock Plus blocks out all of the DMS "Social & Local" settings within Global Options.

jfreemom, did you ever figure out the answer to your question? If not, here's some more info regarding what Rob Thomas was saying. 

 

The easiest way to use the rev slider is to add it as a widget. What Rob was describing is that you would add a single column section to the site, and then add the widgetizer section to that single column section. This will create a widget area that spans the width of the page. You would then create a sidebar specifically for that widget section (you must have the custom sidebars plug-in installed to be able to do this). Rob called it a full-width sidebar, which is a great description of what it is, but you could call it anything that you wanted. Once you've created the sidebar, you would add rev slider to it in the appearance/widget area, and then you simply select that sidebar from the drop-down menu in the widgetizer admin. If you don't see your new sidebar in the drop-down, do a hard refresh. Most times DMS won't pick up changes in the appearance area until after it refreshes. Hope this helps :)

Hi,

The well known and great (IMO) Ajax Event Calendar 1.0.4 plugin (Last Updated: 2013-8-13 - Downloads: 198,442),

--> which still conflicts with Framework v.2.4.4 (users experiencing unbearable grief and complaining since > 1 year, resulting in quite a few posts & headaches & discussions in Live Plus Chat),

--> seems to work perfectly with DMS as far as I'm aware... :)

Example of problem solved: http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/21496-clash-between-pagelines-ajax-event-calendar-plugin/

Hope you don't mind I mention it here  :D. Or should I open a topic "Hey there, here's a list of must-have plugins which should encourage you to swith from Framework to DMS or try DMS if you come from another galaxy"? 

 

Regards.

 

____________

EDIT: Works fine... but breaks some of the frontend visual editor tools, such as deleting a section.

Background-Manager (http://wordpress.org/plugins/background-manager/) does work but only with a workaround. If you choose Boxed Display in Layout & Nav in DMS settings you won't be able to see the backgrounds from BG-Manager. They are obscured by a non transparant 'body .site-wrap'.

Add the following custom-code and you're fine. 

body .site-wrap {
background:transparent;
}

It can be that I'm missing a way to do this from the editor but I couldn't find transparency settings in the color picker.

 

Thanks,

Jan

mobilenow Thanks, I hadn't heard anything but I did go ahead and implement it with the directions you gave me. I'm still having some issues though like the size will not size properly when set to "Fullscreen" in the Rev Slider. And the Rev Slider is not showing the transparency. It shows as a white box, so DMS is not reading the transparent pixels. I also noticed this with one of the DMS sections, transparency was supported on a couple of them...can't remember off the top of my head. But if you can help me with the Rev Slider full width issue that would be great. It kind of has me stuck. I've played with the grid settings and all and still can not get it display properly in fullwidth mode.

@jfreemom: Hmmm, by default Revslider supports transparency, so if you could send a link to the site, perhaps I can help you snif out the problem. Sizing in Revslider is a bit of a bear because it's responsive and the height is dependent on the width. they recommend a 2000x800px image for it. are you using that size of image?

Looks like NextGen Gallery v2.0.7 is incompatible with DMS v0.9.7, which is a little frustrating as it had just been updated and was working again....

Hi

 

I'm using NextGen Gallery V2.0.7 and I'm not having any problems with DMS v0.9.7 so far. I went through the plugin test for it too and it seems to like DMS.

Doesn't seem to be working for me either. Reverted back to 1.9.13

      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.

      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?

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
