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!

      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.

      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?

      Hello There,
      So i want to use platform 5 and DMS sections on a single page, i am using a child theme with pinspro as my main theme and i activated platform 5, the only problem am having so far is the fixed option, my navbars are not aligning to their default size, and it will be great if platform 5 header and footer section will function, has anyone used this option, how can i make the best use of platform 5 and DMS on a site
