DMS Editor Broken

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

 

I have got some pretty serious issues with my website all of a sudden:

 

I am using the latest version of Pagelines DMS on a Flywheel hosted website, and suddenly the editor has been locked down.  The bar still appears at the bottom of the page when logged in, but I can't open it.  There are also problems with my LayerSlider plugin and some of the animated elements such as iBoxes in Chrome and FireFox (a jQuery conflict perhaps?).  I'm not sure if this is due to the theme update or something else.  Before you ask, I've already tried the following:

 

1) Deactivating all plugins...no change.

2) Troubleshooting my custom LESS code...no change.

3) Testing the site out on a local development site...the editor seems to be functioning properly (so maybe a Flywheel problem?)

 

I turned on bug reporting and got the following, with all plugins deactivated:

 

At the top of the page -- Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /www/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1142

 

And at the bottom of the page -- 

Notice: Undefined property: PageLinesEditor::$handler in /www/wp-content/themes/dms/editor/editor.init.php on line 170 Fatal error: Call to a member function process_foot() on a non-object in /www/wp-content/themes/dms/editor/editor.init.php on line 170  

 

Anyone else having similar problems?  Think someone can help me shed some light on this matter?

Can we have a link to your site please? 


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 there,

 

The error warning at the top of the page is due to the site using php 5.5. Full details can be found on http://wpunknown.com/wordpress-and-php-5-5/ which explains it in more depth.

 

There is a plugin you can use to overcome this for the time being - http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-db-driver/

 

I've asked our developer regarding the second error on the page, as soon as we hear back I'll let you know.


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.

Are you still seeing the error at the bottom of the page? I've checked in three different browsers but the site seems to be displaying ok. Dev team says that that function is part of the DMS core.

Yeah, it seems to be working fine now.  I'm thinking that it was something to do with the Flywheel caching on the site.  I don't think it was the browser because one of the first things I did was clear my history.  Oh well.  This is resolved for now.  I'll let you guys know if I have any further issues.

      Hi everyone,
      Flywheel have reported errors on my clients site 'www.racewaredirect.co.uk' and it's not loading. Can someone please provide some information on how to fix this? The site has never experienced these issues before.
      Thanks,
      James Wilson

      Hi,
      When using the editor I am getting duplicate wordpress toolbars and an a nice error to go with it...
      I have them stack 4 high at one point.  Goes away with a refresh then re-appears.
      very odd.

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.

      Hi
      I found this topic
      which talks about a similar issue I am having, but a little different. Hope someone can help me out.
      Best way to see the problem is to view http://cassclayton.com/ on Safari (Mac) compared to Firefox or Chrome. You will see the banner just under the fixed menubar has a gap between the menubar and top of the banner. Looking at Inspector, I found:
      <div class="fixed-top-pusher" style="height: 62px;"></div>
      <script> jQuery('.fixed-top-pusher').height( jQuery('.pl-fixed-top').height() ) </script>
      and indeed it seems the jquery is not always working consistently. For instance, if you simply refresh the page in Safari, it will loose the gap and all looks fine, so is it a browser cache issue that is interacting with the jquery? I do have W3 Total Cache installed. There must be a way to tell the code to make sure jquery is up and running and available to do it's majic?
      And perhaps there is just a better way to do this banner? Originally I tried several DMS sections and used the banner image as background, etc... Kept running into problems with resizing and the left/right parts of the image were getting chopped off. It is important the whole image show, so currently I just use a NextBox section with this code:
      <img src="[pl_site_url]/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/CassClayton-blues-tribute-banner.jpg" width="100%" />
      and it looks the way it should. Is there a better way to place a banner graphic under a fixed navbar and make sure the whole banner graphic displays regardless of screensize?
