Plugin won't work proberly with DMS

Recommended Posts

Dear forum,

 

I found a brilliant plugin for showing a video gallery containing only vimeo videos.

But it does not work proberly with DMS.

 

I'm 100% sure that it is DMS that is causing the problems, because I've tested the

plugin with the basic WP theme, and there were no problems at all.

 

There is supposed to be a dynamic thumbs preview beneath the large video, but it

is not showing.

 

Site :

 

dms.der3raum.com (look under show reels)

 

plugin installed :

 

vimeography

 

Best

Hello Laka 

 

I have tested the plugin for you and can confirm it does work with DMS - http://d.pr/i/isKn 

 

Try deactivating all other plugins on your site to see if there is a plugin conflict of some kind. 


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.

Hi Martin,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

How/where did you add the shortcode ? I tried both in the native WP page and also using

the "MediaBox" component and then adding the shortcode there.

 

Right now there are no other plugins installed - only Contact Form 7 which is de-activated.

 

Still doesn't work. Hope you can help.

 

Best regards

Lasse

Hello laka 

 

I have tried in both the content area of the wp page (postloop) and in a media box http://d.pr/i/rQh0 and they are both working. Have you tired with a completely different set of videos from vimeo?

Hi again,

 

This is really frustrating - it looks like you can make it work with DMS and I can't. As mentioned I have no problems in the basic WP theme or

using the old Pagelines PRO for that matter - here the Vimeography works just fine. I think I've tried almost everything now in DMS....deleting all other plugins and removed all custom code as well.

 

I also contacted the author of the plugin - this is his reply (it makes no sence to me) :

 

Your theme has altered the normal ordering of the WordPress filters such that the wpautop filter is run after shortcodes are parsed. The result is that extra tags are printed all over the form including the JavaScript, which can cause extra spacing, break the JavaScript and preventing the form showing if you have conditional logic. Some themes have a workaround – wrap the form shortcode in raw tags. If that doesn’t work – see below.

The solution is to move the wpautop filter so that it’s run before the do_shortcode filter. Your theme possibly has the code shown below somewhere, a good place to start looking is the functions.php file then any shortcode related file, find this code and remove it.

 

remove_filter( ‘the_content’, ‘wpautop’ );
add_filter( ‘the_content’, ‘wpautop’ , 99 );
add_filter( ‘the_content’, ‘shortcode_unautop’, 100 );

If you can’t find it, the author of your theme will be able to tell you how to do this or provide a workaround.

Hello laka 

 

I have tried the plugin on more than one site and in any area that you can paste a shortcode and the plugin works fine. I have tried a number of different Vimeo playlists and all work fine. 

 

You can wrap problematic shortcodes in RAW. for example rawSC.png?v=1371676951

 

We can't support you in changing any core files (functions.php)

Hi Martin,

 

Thanks for your effort but I have to give up. Is there any way for me to provide you with my login and pass,

so that one of you could have a look. There are no personal or any other important content on the site yet,

so you are free to have a closer look at my settings.

 

I did this with the earlier Pagelines Pro support.

 

Best regards

Lasse

Of course you can but first do not give up. 

 

If you can send the logon to hello @ pagelines.com and do not make any changes until we update you, we well take a look for you. 

 

Please remember to include the forum post URL in the email so that whoever picks it up can easily find which topic it relates to.

Thanks for your patience, i have tested the plugin on your site and it behanves differently than on my test site. 

 

Using the PageLines debug functionality (http://www.dms.der3raum.com/?pldebug=1) i have found the following 

PHP Open basedir restriction : Yes! 

This can often cause problems with DMS. This limits the files that can be opened by PHP within a directory-tree. the step to have this rectified is to contact your host and ask them to remove this.

Dear support,

 

I now got a new host/provider - but they do not now what the php.ini file is supposed to contain. They suggested that the Pagelines/DMS support would know that.

 

Any help ?

 

Best regards

Lasse,

 

The open_basedir setting should be set with "no value" and apparently yours is set to Yes. Have them check the Open basedir settings and adjust to no value.

      Hi there,
      I'm a big fan of Pagelines, and have been for years.
      I'm trying to control the size of video embeds and having some difficulty. I see that I can just paste the Vimeo video URL into the post and an embed widget will automatically appear, which is great. But the embed box created is much taller that the video (689 x 1000 pixels) so the content sits in the middle of a tall black box, which looks awkward.
      I tried using the full iFrame embed code from Vimeo, which solved the disproportionate embed frame size (or aspect ratio) issue, but despite specifying the dimensions I want (690 x 388), the videos displayed on the post are sized at 300 x 150 pixels.
      I can't work out how to change either.
      I'm using the latest version of Pagelines Framework (Pro) with the Agency them.
      Any help or advice very much appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Dougal

      Hi,
      I am using the Canvas Area section at the top of my site. I have a video playing in the background, which works really well on desktop. But on mobile video doesn't play without user interaction, so I have a static image in place as an alternate image. However when viewed on a mobile device there is now a play button over the static image that does nothing. This didn't use to happen so I imaging it is due to an upgrade. But this is really bad UX. Is there a way to remove it?
      Here is the site:

      Hi,
      So I used to use the Video Background extension that was offered here on pagelines, but until recently it continued to function.  Yesterday however it ceased to work and since it has been removed and no longer supported I've been forced to find a new way to show the youtube video that used to be on my background.
      I know that there is the option to upload videos for background, needing both an mp4 and ogv version.  However, since this is a youtube video I don't have any source files to upload.
      I have since turned to using the mb.YTPlayer wordpress plugin.  It seems to be working just fine on its part, as you can see a sliver of it playing just below my footer.  My issue though it that it doesn't show up behind my main body content.  Now it was my understanding that the backgrounds were defaulted to transparent in DMS2 and that this shouldn't be happening.  I've tried several CSS transparency codes to no avail, so my question is how am I able to get the video that is showing up right beneath the footer in other areas?  Either on a section by section basis or for the entire body?

      Hello,
      I'm having trouble getting my Powerloop layout the way that I want...
      I'd like to have the same layout as the question below but instead of an image I'm using video.
      I have my media shortcode above everything but the title is still above it in my page and when I inspect it.
      My settings:
      [powerloop_media]  
      [powerloop_title class="plHtxt" align="center"] 
      [powerloop_content class="plHContent" align="left"]
      [powerloop_author class="plHauthor" align="left"] | [powerloop_date format="F j, Y"]
      Another problem I am having is that I cant create space between the video and the content..If i add padding or an margin to my content class it adds that spacing to the video as well.
      Any ideas on how I can fix this?
