What is the best way to update DMS version?

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone!


Last time when I updated DMS version from 0.9.6 to 0.9.7-

For some reason the updated version didn't pick up all my images. so have to delete the images in my site and post them again.


I updated the DMS simply by clicking update theme button in wordpress.


This time I got an error : "The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature"


 I am also afraid I will lose all the images again.

I just deleted V9.70, downloaded the latest DMS V1.0.1 and uploaded that on another one of my sites and that worked fine for me. Evojet.com.au



If I do that won't I lose all the content? What is the best way to update, when your site is live?

First, make sure you don't have Wordpress SEO plugin activated.  It causes some issues with DMS upgrades.


I successfully updated without any adverse impact by using the link that appears in the Wordpress dashboard. 


If you're not comfortable, you can export the database first, then do the update.  This way you have the database to restore from.

      Bit of confusion on version, and as I tried to update it failed and gave an error message:
      Fatal error: Call to undefined function dms_suggest_plugin() in /home/PRIVATE/public_html/site/dms/functions.php on line 11
      It state DMS 2 in theme area, but when I go to "PageLines License" area in WP Admin panel it says version So what version do I have 1 or 2?
      I just signed up for a PageLine's Club membership, but no instructions, for support, how to download the updates/plugins. Where is the guides or a simple email telling your paid subscribers how, what, and where?
      Ok site thank God was backed up before the upgrade error, but would like to use the carousel plugin offered by PageLines ASAP for this project? Guide me, there is no direction here.... thank you....
      PS I still think it is a good tool but lacking in direction of helping the community, specially paid professionals such as myself.

      I updated to the new DMS and all my flipper images are different sizes. What can I do so they are all the same size again? http://theeargazm.com

      Hello, I heard in the Forum grapevine that there may be an "Add from Library" button added in the next version. Will that be so? It would be great - at the moment I end up with multiple images in my library because there only seems to be the "Upload Image" option rather than the old WordPress "Add Media" that would give a choice. If it is something to be fixed, I am sure your excellent coders will do so in style! For now it would be reassuring to know that it's in the works. Thank you for all your efforts to make DMS, and to continue making it better... Yours faithfully, Jan.
