Please disable all active plugins and then enable PL Debug mode.

 

PageLines > Site Options > Advanced.

 

Also, you have posted in the wrong forums, you're using PageLines Framework not DMS. In future can you post the correct forums please.

lol its no problem, its just confusing that all.

 

Anyway, your debug info shows that you're using PHP version 5.2, this is rather old and I would recommend updating to a newer version. You will need to contact your host to do this for you. You also have PHP Magic Quotes gpc : Yes (bad) in your debug info, this too isn't good and would need addressing, same as your PHP version, only your host provider can address this.

 

You also need to install the PageLines Sections plugin.

 

Before we can diagnose your issue properly, can you contact your web host provider and ask them to upgrade you to PHP 5.4 or later and also enable the PageLines sections plugin.

If the issue still persists, please reply here and we can take a closer look.

OK, I think you need to contact your web host provider, as your Menu contains no menu items. When I added them and clicked Save, they were removed again. I have done a quick search on the Wordpress forums and apparently its related to a MySQL permissions.

Inform your host support that Wordpress menus settings are being saved, give them your login details and ask them to create a menu, add some pages to the menu and then click save, then will see them disappear when the page reloads.

OK, your issue is with either Wordpress or your host. If your host is saying its Wordpress, then you will need to check with them.

 

We can make sure the issue isn't with PageLines Framework, simply go to Wordpress Admin Dashboard > Appearance > Themes and then activate either Twenty Twelve or Thirteen and see if the menu issue persists. If it does, then its an issue with Wordpress.

I can't see how this can be theme specific when PageLines doesn't touch the Wordpress Menu system.

 

Let is know if switching theme solves the issue or not.

Hi mathildam - When you switched to another theme (like Twenty Twelve) as Danny described above, does the menu issue persist? If so, leave that theme active when you contact WordPress as they will be able to help you troubleshoot at that point. Once solved, try moving over to PageLines again and see what happens.


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

Mathilde,

 

I'm sorry for your hosting company problems.  I'm surprised they're behaving so unprofessionally, as PageLines products have been used on hundreds of thousands of websites since 2009.   That behavior is unacceptable, and I'd ask for a manager.  A hosting company should not be allowed to dictate which themes or plugins you use.

 

I'd suggest changing hosting companies. 

 

Meanwhile, could you go to Dashboard > Appearance > Menus for me, and if you've created a saved menu with menu items, scroll to the very bottom of the screen.  In the image attached, you'll see a check box at the bottom of the menu (red arrow pointing to Menu Settings under Primary Website Navigation) make sure the primary menu you saved is checked there.

 

Also, you'll see Manage Locations up at the top.  Make sure you select your primary menu there as the primary selected. See the attached files below:

If the issue is happening when you're using a default Wordpress theme, then its related to your Wordpress installation. Therefore, you will need to contact Wordpress support, as this isn't related to PageLines.

Mathilda,

 

I have to agree with Danny.  You're now using a default WP theme, and your menu still is missing.   If PageLines were the problem, then the menu would appear in any other theme or platform.  Since it doesn't, then the issue is with WordPress.

 

If a plugin isn't the cause, the only other thing I can find is that some custom post hooks have been reported to cause this issue.  I doubt you've added any such customization of WP though.  So, we're at a complete loss.  The only possible way to handle this might be to just rebuild it, on another server.

      Not sure exactly what is causing the issue. For some reason, why you view my site on mobile, the menu does not show up. It will pop up, but it is black. You can check it out here: http://dev.caryfbc.org. I'm also attaching a screenshot where I shrunk my browser down. Any suggestions?

      I think I may have installed pagelines pro incorrectly, and then used features incorrectly. I installed first platforms framework theme and then the child, thinking I could do setup for child later. I tried to set up a background image, and tried custom css feature in pagelines dashboard. I had mistakes in my css, and just thought that if I deleted the info in the css custom feature in pagelines dashboard that the new information would overwrite the old info. The background image didn't respond at all, probably because I didn't have the child directory renamed. I then tried to use the LSS plugin to create css and added more css, possibly, somewhere -sigh-. I never did change the background image and get it placed properly. I used a workaround and in nested containers I placed a background image which worked well enough, so I moved on to try to create my nav bar/ menu bar. When I go to the Menus panel, there is NO area where I can place a menu on a page. I have read and reread and re- re- reread the instructions for placing a menu. I've used the pagelines editor to place a menu, however only HOME shows up. I've been at this for many hours. I've since uninstalled all of my pagelines items and reinstalled, thinking that it would restore all my changes to default, but no, it is still all there, with all my unresolved issues. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.

      How to make the Impulse menu sticky?
      Here is a site that seems like it is doing just that: http://www.manhattanperiodontist.com/
      Here is the site I am working on: http://boeriu.digitalvector.com/ 
      I have no problem showing the menu at the bottom, but when scrolling up it does not stick.  I tried to add Nav Pro menu but when I do that, it just shows on top and no matter what I try is not working as I want it to.
      Any suggestions?

      1) Toggle menu on mobile devices does not work properly, combination Chrome 56.0.2924.87 with Android 6.0.1

      2) Mobile / Default Menu > Set the primary/default navigation for your site. This will be used in the pop out mobile menu and as the default in navigation sections. Does not work.

      We are building a long-page scrolling site with Pagelines 5. Our menu is made with # links that go to a container's unique ID, e.g. container_ux7al6g
      This works, but it doesn't look great in the menu. Is it possible to assign a 'nice' # link, e.g. /#solutions ? 
      We used to do this in the DMS2 platform through a workaround, but that doesn't seem to be possible now. 
      Any suggestions?
