disbale / edit sidebar / remove widgets on posts in dms

Recommended Posts


Hi, using dms a lot now!

Trying to figure out all the little bits, can't seem to find how to stop it displaying a sidebar on posts pages or remove / edit the widgets that appear in there?


I've tried templates, there aren't the options the same as in pagelines v2 to remove elements from content areas, I can't seem to find the sidebar that displays on posts to remove wigets in the appearance > widgets section either


How would I turn off / edit sidebar on posts without having to click the crosshare and remove the sidebar on every post before posting or making a template and having to apply that every time? Can I set a global option?


Any help kindly appreciated

Hi Dominic,


Yes, the manner in which you work with layouts and templates is different in DMS but I think you'll find it's very easy once you've played with it for awhile. If you are logged in and looking at one of your blog posts with a sidebar, you should see something like this http://d.pr/i/LImU and/or see a column above that with some default widgets loaded. Deleting those and then publishing should take care of it for you.


You may also be interested in checking out our docs on using/creating templates in DMS at http://docs.pagelines.com/configure/using-templates.

Have you searched the forums yet or checked out the DMS user docs?

Thanks for the quick reply


I'm trying to disable that view globally or set the properties so it doesn't do that, these sites are mostly passed on the the clients and they wont want to click buttons every time or have to remember to add a template


I might switch back to pagelines v2 until they get that updated, .. if they do


Kills it a bit, is pretty cool otherwise but that's gonna ruin it :(


Will keep experimenting myself, cheers though!

      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.

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      Have researched this in the forum and find a couple ancient posts from 2011 and 2014 apparently for pre-DMS2?
      Am using latest Wordpress  4.8.4 running DMS Version: 2.2.4 theme
      When in the editor (Chrome), the page looks fine, but when logged out and viewing individual posts, they show up twice - one in the column I have setup and a second time at bottom of content page but above footer???
      Each page has 2 columns, left column is biggest and contains wploop/content and comments. wpcontent loop is displaying a second time below both columns but ONLY when not in editor. While in editor, second wp content block does not appear???
      https://cassclayton.com/el-chapultapec/  is a post. You can get to it from NEWS | News/Blog dropdown menu, then choosing a post.
      The 2011, 2014 posts talk about going into Settings and adjusting the excerpts vs full settings, but can't find anywhere to do this in DMS???
      Not sure if this is a new issue or old one i just now noticed.

      Best regards,

      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.
