How to Preserve Formatting from Pagelines After Upgrading to DMS

2 posts in this topic

Today I upgraded from Platform to Pagelines Lite and found that in order to keep my 3-column site (content in the middle, sidebars to left and right) I'd need to go Pro. So I bought the Personal version of DMS. Being a novice, I am finding DMS a bit overwhelming. I liked the ease of Pagelines, and really only want access again to my 3 columns. Is there a way to access the 3-column layout through Pagelines now that I've paid for the Pro version? Or would I need to redesign the site through DMS? I tried logging in to my account through the Pagelines dashboard on Wordpress but I keep getting a message that says ERROR: User not found! I am using the same user/pass that I used when I signed up for DMS.


Here's the site, if that helps (with old Platform theme, to show what I want it to look like):


Ideas, anyone?

If you migrated from Platform to PageLines Lite and then to DMS. Your site will no longer look as it did when Platform was enabled. This is because all three are separate products, its just like installing any new Wordpress theme. Your site will take on the default layout and design of that theme.


If you want a three column layout in DMS, drag and drop the 3 Column layout section on your template and then start to organise your sections/content.

      Nothing is saving on our websites, our Key is no longer registering, emails have gone unanswered.  The DMS theme seems to be overall malfunctioning.   I just want it to work like it worked last week again please. Also, based on our your website is looking, it's also falling apart. Please Advise ASAP!  Our clients have a much shorter temper with us, because we actually offer a way to contact us.  We have reinstalled the latest theme over and over.

      I have looked at a lot of resolved issues on these forums and nothing has been able to work.
      My changes are not saved after i hit publish and refresh, all the changes I've made disappear. 
      Also i am not able to add backgrounds or any images to the entire site, Rivslider, Quickslider, etc.
