Sections bug/corrupt when page reloads

Recommended Posts


Hi, I was editing earlier today and when i refreshed the home page (in editor mode) all 'sections' on all pages disappeared, when i tried to add them again they either kept disappearing (did not save after refresh) or when they did save, they seem to be corrupt/buggy.

See image below, which displays two different sections that seem corrupt after i refresh the browser window.







I have not added any new plugins recently.





EDIT: So I think it is to do with the editor, because it shows fine on the front end.

I've had something similar recently and was trying to pin down the cause - in this case the header/footer was fine but any sections in the content area first reformatted on the page (one of the columns jumped from 8/12 to 12/12 pushing content underneath)  then went altogether when I published. I did activate/deactivate a plugin but something's up...

Yes, everything in the header and footer sections are fine, but when I add sections to the 'template' area and refresh the editor they scramble and if I refresh the editor again they disappear/delete and I have to start again.


The only solution I can find is to add all the content in one hit, then hit publish, (but not refresh in the editor mode) then view the page out of the editor (logged out like a normal user/viewer of the site.)



It is a major bug, I hope it get fixed soon.

I'm having the same issue with sections re-sizing and disappearing

This isn't a bug.  However, respectfully, it's the result of failure to read the docs and understand the product.


"(did not save after refresh)"  --- You're supposed to save (Publish) first, and then refresh.  If you refresh first, the work you've done is overwritten.   This is no different in a WordPress post or page edit screen, so why are so many people having issues with this in DMS?


If you're in any edit screen and you've written something and refresh your screen, those changes will be gone, forcing you to do it again.  Doesn't it make sense that the same fundamental computing praecept will be the norm in DMS?  Every word processor, graphics editor, CAD program, I've used in computing since 1975 (yes, before the PC and Apple IIe), had the same basic rule of thumb.  Don't refresh till you save.

      Hi Folk,
      Can anyone help me please.  On a page on my site I placed an 'embed section' and inserted code from the Eviivo Booking system that seems to call scripts from their site.  After doing the PL5 editors will not load so I can't edit anything.  Is there anyway of disabling the section so I don;t have to rebuild the page?

      Please see screenshot. I think it should be self-explanatory.

      Good evening. I am attempting to use the Impulse section on a page I am working on (https://dev.elementalkites.com). The tool seems to have the ability to overlay a logo on top of the slider images but in my case it isn't working, even though I have added the logo file and given it a height to display at. I have attached a screenshot for reference. Any help would be appreciated.

      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.

      I have found that many of the components, especially lists, do not work in the Edge browser. 
      For example https://nkdagility.com/ has 6 video boxes that only render in Chrome and do not show in Edge.
