Masthead Not removing defaults

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I've got DMS Pro and Wordpress 3.6.1 sitting on a Hostgator server.

 

In Chrome, the defaults go away (the title that says "The Hero!" and the subtitles that say "Now just set up your Hero section options") since I've filled in the defaults. However, in Safari they are still there. I've cleared caches, I've tried to hide them with CSS, and yet they persist. I'm assuming they are supposed to go away when the defaults are filled in?

Thanks!

Hi bevinh - It appears to me that you haven't published the changes yet and that's why you're able to see them in Chrome where you're working but not elsewhere.Click on the Publish button to the top right of the visual editor and see if that does the trick!


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

Nope, that's not it. I've published it several times and just to be sure, I published it again.

 

Let me clarify though - What I'm seeing is the stuff I put in there, and then smooshed underneath (and by underneath I mean on a different z-index) it is the "The Hero" default stuff.

 

BOTH are displaying at the same time.

@bevinh  I'm guessing you have a cache plugin activated.  If you do, clear the cache using the plugin's settings.  Clear any CDN cache too. Deactivate the cache plugin after you've done that, then refresh your browser completely.

No cacheing. WP-SuperCache deleted to be sure. 

 

Browsers all refreshed. Caches flushed. 

 

The ONLY plugin I have currently active is a social plugin that adds a few social media icons.

 

If you take a look at it in Firefox it's even worse, NONE of the defaults are gone, and it's got every component ever put on the page at the top of the page with the default content in it. I tried removing all custom CSS and that did nothing. 

 

Keep in mind, this is my development server that it's sitting on, and I've created many wordpress themes on it and NONE of them have ever had this issue. I may revert to the old pagelines, as this is really holding this project up, unless you've got an easy fix. Everything seemed fine...and now it's seriously not fine.

I should add - about 50% of the time upon a refresh, Chrome shows it all properly. It's almost like the defaults show up for a moment and then are hidden, but it doesn't work 100% and in FF and Safari, it only works on certain elements.

It looks from your site like there's a template in which these sections are not modified, but in plain, out-of-the-box mode and that template's loading for some odd reason.

 

Can you check each template, by loading each, to see if they contain these elements?

That fixed it in Safari. It appears that the default template loads underneath the landing page template and for some reason had every element that I'd ever put on the landing page template on it. I'm pretty sure I didn't put those on the default template (as there'd be no reason to do that in that way). 

 

However, there are still some display issues related to Firefox and the defaults not removing. 

 

I'm returning to the Pagelines original framework for this project, as this is just wayyyy too buggy. I'll demo this on something else.

I have some similar problem. If I leave the "masthead text" empty it goes back to default "Hello.". I want it to be blank. See www.chikara-consulting.com

oskarand either add &nbsp for your title or if never going to use, then can use CSS:

 

.masthead-title {

  display: none;

}

 

or set up custom styling class

 

.nomasttitle {

  .masthead-title {

     display: none;

  }

 

and reference in Standard Options > Custom styling classes using nomasthead without the full stop

Chrome Developer tools - please use them. If you are not sure how, then it is easy to learn

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!

Unfortunately, the tile field isn't optional. However, I have added this to my notes and will bring it our developers attention.

      Good morning,
      I have set up my homepage using the Elements sections, a Masthead at the top and then a selection of Heroes lower down.
      I only just realised that the Heroes set a H1, as does the Masthead.
      Is there an easy way I can change the Heroes to an H2/H3 etc so as to improve the structure of my headers, whilst keeping the Masthead as H1?
      I really don't know much at all about CSS, which is why I use Pagelines because it's just so easy to create good looking pages without too much confusion.

      Hey there,
       
      I use quite a few templates to handle the look and feel of many many pages on a site and then populate the templated pages with a wp-content loop. However a client has asked that I effectively place a DMS2 Masthead at the top of each page as they prefer the styling of the title & tagline to the standard in WP. Obviously I can't do this when using templates as the Masthead would just replicate over all the associated templated pages, so could you please tell me if it's possible to recreate the title and tagline styling of the Masthead using HTML rather than CSS in the text view of the wp-content editor? I did inspect the HTML/CSS but came up fruitless...
       
      Hope that makes some kind of sense, and please excuse my coding ignorance :)
       
      Best

      Hi! I want to link a button in the musthead så that when clicked it send the visitor to a lower position/place in the same page. It is clear how you can type a link in a button så that the person sends to another page, but how do you send them to a lower place in the same page?

      My Masthead text is not formatting to mobile devices. It was working fine last week and once I added the ShareBar section everything got a little off. At first I thought it was the width of the ShareBar that was causing the issue so I used a media query to resize the width and it works for the tablet size of 767px however my Masthead text is now askew and does not resize for the screen. I am using FitText.js to resize the headings (h1, h2, etc). Here is the media query that I am using for the ShareBar. For some reason I am 
       
      @media only screen and (max-width:767px) {  #sharebarui2dj1f .pl-sharebar { width:540px;     } }

      Hello there!
       
      I'm a bit panicky this evening as I was just making a quick change to the top half of my page when the DMS decided to stop loading up.
       
      The steps I took before refreshing are as follows: 
       
      Added in a Masthead
      Embedded a YouTube Video into the Video field on the editing panel
      Refreshed 
      Began pulling hair out
       
      After this I went to troubleshoot it and have deactivated all plugins however the problem still persists with all plugins deactivated. I am pretty sure it is a something to do with the Masthead, however not being able to get in and remove that section, makes seeing a solution somewhat rather difficult.
       
      Anyway I shall look forward to hearing your response.
       
      PS. I am running DMS 2 
      GoDaddy hosting
      and 21 Plugins all of which I have mentioned in previous posts.
