Recommended/Conflicting Third Party Plugins ?

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.

      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.

      It is with much sorrow that I have to say goodbye to a product that had such great potential.
      There has been no acknowledgement from anybody as to whether or not Pagelines will continue
      or even if they are going to hand it over to someone that would keep the project going. I can't
      keep shelling out money every month to a company that either no longer exists or has chosen to 
      abandoned their customer base. Well it has been a nice 5 years.

      Hello Pagelines,   I no longer use pagelines services. I have deactivated the automatic annual payment. But it already charged to my credit card. Since I cancelled my contract before the end, Can I request to refund?

      I am wanting to know what the status of the Pagelines Platform.
      I have noticed that there has been absolutely no updates on Platform 5 for over 8 months.
      Please tell me you haven't gone off on another tangent and going to build the next great solution
      and then leave all of us to have to completely rebuild our sites like we did for
      Pagelines, then DMS, then Pagelines Platform.
      I like what you build, but what you need to do is build one product and then make it better, rather than 
      abandoning it and building something else.
      You haven't done anything for so long that even WordPress is providing a warning.
      "Warning: This plugin has not been tested with your current version of WordPress."
      So what is the Status. I mean if I am going to pay a monthly fee for a product, I don't want to pay for one
      that is no longer being supported. You have a great product, I'm not bashing it, I'm just wondering what 
      your next move is because I have business decisions to make for myself, and whether of not this is something
      I should stick with.

      Please be kind enough to respond.

      Thank You,
