Recommended Posts

Hey!

 

 

If I create a website theme with Pagelines, is it possible for me to export this website as a normal wordpress theme (parent theme) so it says designed by me etc.

 

Reason why I asked is because I have this online tool which can check what current theme there is on targeted URL, if I do the check on a website created by pagelines it obviously show pageline theme.

 

 

 

Not sure if this goes in the right forum category, if not please move!

 

 

Thank you for help.

Hi,

 

PageLines DMS is a Design Management System. Therefore, you can create your own child themes based on DMS. However, you can not use DMS to create your own theme, saying designed by John Doe and then rename the DMS folder, as this will pretty much break DMS.

 

This goes for all Wordpress Frameworks to my knowledge, meaning you can't rename the parent folder and claim it as your own theme. As it will break the Framework/DMS.

I see, so I can't really use Pagelines to create wordpress themes to sell. But I can create themes and sell them within pagelines to other DMS users right? Thought Pagelines was something like a more advanced Artisteer if you've heard of it.

Actually what I said in my previous post wasn't entirely accurate. If you use the Open Source version of DMS, which you can download from both PageLines.com and GitHub, you're free to do whatever you like as its open source. However, this will require a lot of work and proceeding in this fashion will void you of all support.

 

So you're free to use DMS and create your own theme(s), but you will not receive any support, as this will then be classed as your product and not ours.

 

You can use DMS and create your own child theme(s) which you can add to the PageLines store to sell to other PageLines users.

      I am working on a multisite installation and had some questions regarding the themeing options. All the sites will have the same structure but each individual site would need a different h1 font and link color. I had originally thought that I would program/edit the parent theme to have a certain set of templates, font sizes, etc. and then that would feed to all the individual sites where I could activate the child theme and use the child theme to define the individual sites' specific link color, heading fonts, etc. So, what I was shooting for was:
      Parent theme = shared by all sites
      Child theme = specific to the minor customizations on a per site basis.
      Is this possible? Am I misunderstanding how these would actually deploy to the different sites?

      Should be a simple answer but not sure why its not doing this.  I have a child theme installed on pagelines 5 that has a hook so it will write over the theme css. Strange is that when I am on the frontend the code works but in the dashboard your theme takes over my code and its no where to be found. See examples attachments

      Hi,
      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      https://staging4.talltreemusicfestival.com/2017/grand-analog/
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.
      -Matt

      Hi, I noticed that framework and pagelines.com child theme has a number of errors when run through themecheck. The others, like material and bootstrap, don't have any errors when run through theme check. Is there a way to get it so that there are no errors on the child theme?

      What file do I need to add code to in my pl-framework-pagelines child theme to insert script after opening body tag on every page?
      Can you someone provide me with the code also?
