Does DMS and UberMenu work?

20 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

 

I thought UberMenu works in DMS. I tried to as per the instructions in this page  - http://sevenspark.com/docs/ubermenu-pagelines-dms

 

But I can't see Ubermenu in Navigation section??

 

Did I waste my money purchasing it?

Once you have ubermenu activated, in order to use it, you have to:

 

 

Go to wp dashboard ->appearance->menu- manage menus.

I am using the widget method now. 

 

U make a custom widget, put text and the shortcode, and then use widgetizer. Originally I used the section, but it doesn't appear anymore for me - maybe when u use the shortcode it removes the section? Not sure. There is a complete tutorial here how to use the widget method.

Okay,  you should install and activate a base child theme, where you'll find a sections folder.  Install ubernav there.  Install UberMenu as a plugin, as normal. Then, you can go to DMS, and drag the UberNav section to the header.

 

Do you need a link to a child theme?

I doing the way like smart egg say.

First you have to download urbermenu adaptor to your child theme (section folder ) and you put urbermenu plugin in plugin folder.

You will immediately see urbermenu adaptor under DMS section.

Just follow the rest of institutions from urbermenu DMS

Hey guys!

 

I made this a little easier. I packed up a UberMenu / DMS section that doesn't need you to make a child theme or mess with your sections folder. You can just install it as a plug-in like most other sections.

 

I have installation instructions and a download link over on the page describing UberDMS. Yes, it's free :)

I have the Ubermenu sticky extension - doesn't work currently - I will try your plugin and see if this works. 

 

PS - the page on your site you send us - you are not using ubermen sticky here, right? Looks like the sticky nav provided by DMS.

Yeah, not UberMenu on that site. I don't need it there.

 

Sadly, at the moment the sticky extension doesn't work. On my "possible" todo list is finding a solution to that. I may need to re-implement the sticky stuff independently to hook it the way DMS needs.

Hi Ken, 

Maybe a sticky full-width Section. Would be nice if they where cloneable and stack to the top of the page.

I looked on the Seven spark forum today (Ubermenu developer), and found the following fix for the sticky menu. 

 

 

Hi bfrye,

What is happening is that the DMS is loading its own version of Waypoints, which overrides UberMenu’s version, which causes a javascript error.

I dug around in PageLines DMS and found that this is the issue: they are enqueueing scripts against the wrong hook:

 

add_action( 'wp_print_scripts', 'pagelines_print_js' );

function pagelines_print_js() {
 
    wp_enqueue_script( 'pagelines-bootstrap-all' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'pagelines-easing' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'pagelines-resizer' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'pagelines-viewport' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'pagelines-waypoints' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'pagelines-fitvids' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'pagelines-parallax' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'pagelines-common' );
}

Changing line 142 in actions.site.php to the proper hook:

1
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'pagelines_print_js' );

resolves the issue.

As described in the WordPress Codex,

Hope that helps!

 

wp_enqueue_scripts is the proper hook to use when enqueuing items that are meant to appear on the front end.

Chris

Thank you soulhuntre I followed http://www.samuraideveloper.com/uberdms/  renamed it to uberdms.zip installed the plugin. I then went to the DMS editor, dropped the section onto the page and got the error (I would attach the image but it became too much work with this forum) "This template returned blank and visitors will not see it. Refresh, settings, or data changes may be needed for output."

 

Am I missing something?

Everyone!

 

The DMS/Ubermenu section was officially released yesterday. No child theme needed.  You can get it in the store and it's FREE!

Not at all. That is a correct message if there will be no output. Did you have Ubermenu installed, activated and with a menu assigned?

Good point!  Whether using Soulhuntre's section or the one provided by DMS, you still require the UberMenu premium plugin to create your menu.  Without Ubermenu, the section is just a container set up to hold the menu.  It will deliver no menu without the UberMenu plugin being installed and activated, and set up correctly.

      hi
      i wanted to point out at this time, that i am very very very happy with platform 5. (before i used DMS and others) as some ppl talking here some things are not working, i can say the opposite working on my Web:
      1. UberMenu
      is running fine, without shortcodes or "tricks" necessary - it runs out of the box with no problems in a few clicks configured. also further ubermenu plugins 100%
      2. Shift Nav
      As a further extension of UberMenu - also runs fine out of the box with a few clicks. also combine with ubermenu no problem (Ubermenu for normal nav, shift nav for mobile)
      3. https / SSL

      I user commodo instant ssl and everything runs fine (10 minutes installation) - no mixed content errors nothing everything very smooth :-). Google SERPS have been updated to https URLS wihtin 1 day(!)
      4. MaxCDN
      I use MaxCDN for sitespeed as i implemented also video backgrounds. it runs perfect with wp supercache
      5. Nginx
      I also run nginx on my webspace, also with that there a no problems with platform 5. I also use nginx streaming for video files, works perfect.
      For all points there a no functions codes necessary or implement shortcodes - it runs out of the box and makes it easy for everybody, whos a little firm in technical matters. Some guys here in the forum make it really complicated :-)
      I am working with pagelines around 5 years now, and platform 5 / framework 5 is the best tool ever
      BUT i am missing to configure site headlines h1-hx as in DMS possible easy way. It was a great way to make seo sitestructure. now there are lots of empty headlines or headlines or jumped over. in seo this causes errors in sites structure. this should be reworked.
      if you have any questions on pl5 with 1.-5. just ask me here....

      I use Ubermenu for client sites and this is the first attempt to work on a PL5 site.
      The issue I'm encountering is that when I scroll the ubermenu sticks to the top of the page (which I want) the content is on top of the ubermenu.

      I have a horizontal menu system, using the UberMenu 3 adapter and UberMenu 3 along with DMS v2.1.9.1 and a WooCommerce plugin called Cloud Zoom (for magnifying product photos) (http://www.mrova.com/woocommerce-cloud-zoom/, which seems to use the jQuery lib PrettyPhoto, I'm not a programmer, so I'm not positive).
       
      The trouble is, when I hover over the menu, the photo is displayed on top of the menu, and whatever is on the menu is hidden by the photo. It happens in all major browsers, so I don't think it is a browser issue. 
       
       Here's the code from that div when grabbing it out of Firebug:   <div class="images"> <div style="top:0px;z-index:9999;position:relative;" id="wrap"><a data-rel="prettyPhoto[product-gallery]" title="Euro Wood" class="zoom first cloud-zoom" href="http://fastcarts.davidstellsphoto.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/SWF2001.jpeg" rel="zoomWidth:'auto',zoomHeight: 'auto',position:'right',adjustX:0,adjustY:0,tint:'false',tintOpacity:0.5,lensOpacity:0.5,softFocus:false,smoothMove:3,showTitle:false,titleOpacity:0.5" style="position: relative; display: block;"><img width="300" height="300" alt="Euro Wood" class="attachment-shop_single" src="http://fastcarts.davidstellsphoto.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/SWF2001-300x300.jpeg" style="display: block;"></a><div style=";z-index:999;position:absolute;width:341px;height:341px;left:0px;top:0px;" class="mousetrap"></div></div> <div class="thumbnails"><a data-rel="prettyPhoto[product-gallery]" title="Euro Wood" class="zoom first" href="http://fastcarts.davidstellsphoto.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/SWF2001.jpeg"><img width="300" height="300" alt="Euro Wood" class="attachment-shop_single" src="http://fastcarts.davidstellsphoto.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/SWF2001-300x300.jpeg"></a></div> </div> I've also attached a few screenshots and the URL I'm using as an example is: http://fastcarts.davidstellsphoto.com/product/14-euro-wood-steering-wheel/

      I am using the Multi Menu in conjunction with Uber menu. I have a couple questions. 
       
      1. How do I make the logo larger 
       
      2. The Uber menu full width (sub menu) seems to work, but some of the basic Style Generator settings are not,  like colors and font size.  Does anyone know what I would need to do to get the top level menu working if there is an issue how do I adjust the top level menu styles to 
      Increase font size  Change font color  
       
      Thanks in advance

      I'm trying to get Ubermenu to work on my site and from what I've read its incompatible with NavBar. I can, however, get it to work with the Simple Nav, but that only shows up in the footer of my page (its disabled currently). I need help finding a solution that would allow Ubermenu to run as my main site navigation and haven't been able to figure it out. From what I can find online this will require me use Nav Classic, and I'm not sure if that's possible in Pagelines.
