Recommended Posts

Okay, so all of a sudden, when I try to make any changes at all to my fixed navbar, nothing works. I go to global options > nabar. I've got enable fixed nav bar. all my links and logo are there. But, if i try to change the logo, it doesn't work. If I try to change the navbar colour to say orange, nothing happens. If I try to unhide the search box, nothing. It's only just started happening.

 

I've tried, flushing the caches, closing down and logging back in...any ideas???

And now, an hour later, one of the changes I tried, (orange nav bar) has suddenly happened. It's almost as if something's stuck re: the fixed navbar and it won't update.

So, I can add/remove search. I can align left or right. I can disable/enable fixed nav. But I can't change colour and I can't add logo. Now I've just discovered that the fixednav is different on pages vs blog pages. Has anyone got any ideas what's gone wrong here?? Any help muchly appreciated.

HI,

 

Can you provide a link to your site please and also enable PL Debug mode (DMS Toolbar > Global Options > Advanced).

Hi,

Your issue is caused by you having a cache plugin installed and active, whilst your sites design isn't finished. Cache plugins should only be installed when your sites design has been finalised, making changes when a cache plugin is installed can cause the issue of you not seeing these changes, as its cached.

 

FLush your cache and disable the plugin until your sites layout/design has been completed. Also, I recommend you view the cache plugins documentation, as you can't simply install the cache plugin, activate it and think thats it, there is more to it than that. You need to configure it and make sure its compatible with your servers configuration, if it isn't then cache plugins can have no or a negative effect on your sites performance.

Hi Danny,

 

Thanks for this. I've done as you've suggested and no change. I can control the fixed nav on tag, category and post pages but not on any normal pages. They are still stuck on orange and no logo. Any more ideas?

I recommend you disable all active plugins except for the DMS Pro Tools plugins and see if this resolves your issue. Also, your image for your Navbar logo isn't work as the image link is broken.

This is the URL for the image currently set in your Fixed navbar - http://performancepotential.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/PP_circ_icon_wh1.png

 

As you can tell when you click it, it gives a 404.

Hi Danny, I've disabled all plug-ins and still no change. I can't update the navbar logo because it won't save any changes. Everything is fine on tag, category and post pages, and the 404 page you saw. And whenever I make changes to Global Options > navbar, these changes flow through to these pages. I just can't update any of the normal pages.

 

It seems odd because I've had all these plug-ins going for weeks now and I've been updating pages without any problems. Then all of a sudden, it stops working.

Ok, well from what I can see your issue is that your Wordpress is installed here:

 

http://performancepotential.com.au

As you can see from your settings - http://d.pr/i/ugfD

 

Therefore, can you remove this redirect and see if this resolves your issue. As we can't even view your Debug info.

Can you explain in more detail? What redirect?

OK, well you have Wordpress installed here - http://performancepotential.com.au

 

However, when we visit this page, it goes to a completely different site. So if this isn't a redirect, then its most likely an index.html file that overrides the index.php file from Wordpress.

Either way, this non-Wordpress page/site isn't helping diagnosing your issue, if this can be removed we will hopefully be able to resolve your issue.

OK, I seem to be having an issue loading your site correctly, as its not effecting my colleagues, so I have got one of them to take a look at you issue.

Not sure why I am being redirected to that page all time.

Hello ppotent 

 

Having looked at your site setup, you are using the default template for your site front page and the 'homeorange' template for http://performancepotential.com.au/home/ 

 

Try selecting the 'homeorange' for the orange navbar on your homepage or 'default' for the red one on the relevant pages. 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works. 

 

Please do not send me private messages. Occam's razor - The principle states "Keep things simple!"

Thanks for this Martin. But, it doesn't matter what template I apply, the fixednav will not change for the static pages. It only changes for tags, categories, posts and 404.

Okay, so given that the fixed navbar seems to be broken, I've had to resort to using a normal navbar in the header. I just don't get it. I've been creating my site for the last couple of months with no problems at all and then all of a sudden, it just breaks.

Hi there,

 

Without the fixed nav on the active site it's hard to say. If you create a new page and then enable to fixed nav does the same thing happen as with the existing pages? If you delete the homeorange template does the nav change back to normal?


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Hello, 
      I have an issue with NavPro on mobile when the link of the menue is on the same page. 
      Here is my website: http://foundersofthefuture.co
      The isssue comes from the fact that in my menue most of the items send somewhere else on the same page using anchor link (eg. #container_u788888). 
      This works well on desktop but on mobile, nothing happens when clicking on the link. One of the link of the menue of the homepage "France" sends to another page of the website and this one works well even on mobile. 
      I am using the Pagelines framework theme and also used a wordpress plugin (jQuery Smooth Scroll) for smooth scrolling . 
      Thanks in advance for your help and let me know if I need to provide more information. 
      Best,
      Pierre

      Hi guys. Just now trying out Platform 5. I like the reletive simplcity of the new interface but there are things I'm used to in DMS that I'm not seeing yet in 5. Is there a good manual, documentation, video series about some of the basics?
      In particular, I've got a simple navigation menu, created the standard way in WP menus section with several top level parents, then 3-4 children menu items below a couple parent items. Have them moved to the right to create the standard parent-child relationship but all I see on the page is the parent level items - no dropdown!. So I changed themes from Platform5 to the standard 2015 default theme and now I see absolutely no menu at top, except for the mobile (hamburger?) icon.
      In DMS, one had Navi and Navbar, etc sections and each would work differently and give different results. How do you work the menu system in 5? And how get different results ?
      thanks

      I have a problem at http://kambo.world. Using navbar for the main site navigation. It works fine in normal/desktop mode [first screenshot], using the WP Menu I have specified. But in hamburger mode it seems to do its own thing, picking a few pages at random [second screenshot] A fix for this greatly appreciated!
