Recommended Posts

Hi there

 

Hope all is well with you guys, let me start off by saying that you did a great job with DMS, i waited for a long time but now i had to buy Pagelines and bin all the rest.

 

It's just too cool and i am looking forward building some great sites with it.

 

There is some information that would be very valuable for me to have before i end up destroying sites i built and potentially wasting precious time.

 

Got some very easy questions for you, here we go : 

 

1.: Do you have a list of third Party Plugins that Pageline DMS plays well with ie. that you can recommend ?

 

2.: Can use the following third party Plugins ?

   - Wishlist Member for Membership Sites ?

   - Gravity Forms for forms ?

 

3.: It is my intention to use a backup plugin to back up all the work i do each day, What is the best set and forget WP Plugin to use with Pagelines ?

 

4.: Do you have a list of third party Plugins that i cannot use or that are known to conflict with Pageline DMS ?

 

5.: I would appreciate if you could give any advice on which Plugins/Solutions to use that enable me to create Membership Sites with Pagelines.

 

Thank you very much 

- Corrado

Hi Corrado,

 

No specific list of plugins that work, but there are more than 30,000 plugins out there. Kinda hard to make that list.  Best rule of thumb, make sure it's WordPress 3.6 compatible.  Always test the plugins on a development or test server, not on your live site. If it crashes, then your site won't be affected.

 

Don't know about Wishlist. Hasn't been tested by anyone, but lots of folks use it and I haven't seen complaints yet.

 

Gravity Forms works.

 

No idea how to implement a backup plugin.   You might want to backup your entire site, not just the posts/pages... so talk to your hosting company about backup options for the database and entire site. 

 

The Plugin Compatibility Check List is at http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/28827-dms-plugin-compatibility-check-list/

 

For membership sites, I use s2Member, but it depends on whether you want a free or paid solution.  There are many different types of membership systems.  s2Member is well known, and carefully maintained by a very professional team, considering that it's free. 

 

I hope these answers help!

Hi Rob 

 

Thanks for getting back.

 

I did some reserach reguarding backupsolutions and this list is very good. http://www.stateofdigital.com/top-6-wordpress-backup-plugin-recommendations-for-2013/

 

My host is keeping weekly backups automatically of all sites on a weekly base so for sites where not alot is happening its ok and enough.

 

If sites get busy and you add new content every day or hour then i would recommend Vaultpress which for a regular User like me is a dream come true, it's made by Automattic too so it's great and no messups.

 

As for Plugin compatibility i will do as you suggested and always run a development copy of the site and try new plugins out there first.

 

Optimize Press seems to have these issues as well after their latest update that features a visual editor similar to DMS.

 

You might find this article here interesting : http://help.optimizepress.com/customer/portal/articles/1254497-why-some-themes-and-plugins-don-t-work-with-optimizepress-

 

Thanks

      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

      I've been fighting with a resolution issue ? Want to use Flick Slider, the site looks great on my monitor but client says she can't see bottom of homes. I believe she's on an old PC using outdated browser/s ... but, she's important to me and I'd like to make this work, on her system. Without asking her adjust her own set-up. 
      I put the Flick Slider inside a container, here ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-five
      Set the Height of Flick Slider to 50 Base ... I don't know how this works exactly ... there is a Base then a Min ... but, haven't adjusted the Min ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-four/
      Tried using Splash Up, which presents the same issue (she can only see top of home) and she wants several images to rotate on Home page, so not sure this would work anyway ::
      http://becauze.xyz/
      I have tried going into Layout and making the width narrower, and that does make the site narrower, but the homes still don't display in full, on her system. Help ?

      Here are her screen grabs, both desktop and iPad  (dumped the chalkboard background).

      FInally, she said these look great ::
      http://www.sinclairaia.com/
      http://www.kristihanson.com/
      What am I doing wrong ?? Is there a better way to accomplish making the site look great on any resolution at any size ?

      I updated my theme to framework and now can't get rid of this bright blue bar that appears across the top of every page. It says, "A fixed bar that makes it easy to promote important content.", and then a button that says, "Get PageLines".
      I am a novice and need help.
      Thank you!

      Hi,
       
      I have been using DMS and pagelines.
      I am facing to a huge trouble with the appearance of one of my page on mobile (smart phones) built with pagelines.
      However I haven’t come to any solutions to organise either edit the appearance of mobile view to look neat or deactivate the responsive function. 
      Now it looks totally messy on the phone...
       
      1. Is there any way to edit the appearance of the mobile version (responsive theme)?
      2. Is there any way to deactivate responsive function?
       
      If I could receive support from you to go thorough this process I would be happy to be a pro member. 
       
      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
