Flushing CSS/LESS Cache Killed the DMS

Recommended Posts

greenfly

This is how we see your site http://d.pr/i/iM4f

 

Should it not look like this? 

 

Did you click the Flush Less/CSS button or the Cache in a caching plugin? 


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.

Ok.  The DMS is just raw html right not but I've checked the "Enable debug" checkbox.  Does that work?

The debug doesn't work for some reason. 

 

Can you create an admin logon for your site for us and send the credentials to hello @ pagelines.com along with a link to this topic and we shall investiagte further

Ok - you also have PageLines Customise plugin active - this does not work with DMS. Can you remove this and use a child theme to add your styling to instead of the Customise plugin. You can see information regarding child themes here http://docs.pagelines.com/customize/base-child-theme 

 

Also update all your plugins as you have 3 outdated plugins. 

 

When you have done this, try again - if the site does not work still when you are logged in (site is working as it should when not logged in) Disable all your plugins and try it again.

I'm currently using a child theme to theme our site. 

 

I've removed the Customize plugin and run the updates for the other plugins. 

 

Still not getting any CSS in the DMS.

Looks like your site works ok until you activate the child them, i was able to replicate your issue then.

With just dms flush cache worked ok.

Any idea what the child theme is doing that's causing the issue? Or is that just up to me to figure out?

It seemed to be working fine when with the DMS, I switched it my child theme and it busted again.  I switched it back to the DMS theme and now that is busted.  Can you give me any more information on what might be causing this?

 

Did you do follow those same step to fix it?

I dont know whats causing it, all i did was disable the child theme, then go to wp-admin -> pagelines and click 'save' this purges all the stored css.

With your child theme only about 10% of css is being generated.. maybe you are filtering variables, less file locations..whatever

Ok.  That helped.  I've got the DMS functioning again.

 

Although I'm now having a separate issue where the less and section overrides that I have in my child theme are not overriding.  The files are there but they don't seem to being working. I'm following the documentation found here - http://docs.pagelines.com/advanced/override-sections

 

The files that I'm overriding are:

 

Less

  • buttons.less
  • colors.less
  • pl-structure.less
  • variables.less

 

Sections

  • altered-nav
  • navbar
  • pl_area
  • textbox

 

Thank you for your help by the way.  I really appreciate it.

Hi there, your custom Css/LESS is loading in the source code, I can see all the code is being generated - http://experticity.staging.wpengine.com/wp-content/themes/experticity/style.css?ver=113-1114222033

 

Have you managed to resolve this since posting?


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,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      Hi guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?
      Thanks
      Michael

      In DMS2 there was a button to click to flush pagelines cache. Don't see this in platform5. Am having a big problem with caches. Have W3 Total cache plugin, but now even if I deactivate it, the code in css/less seems to not be registering??? I can delete all custom css, save, then add just a bit of the css (that used to work just fine the other day) and that small section of css takes effect. Then when I paste the whole css (that worked fine the other day), it seems to not work???
      About to restore DB backup from a couple days ago to see if that solves it, but it's a drag that this issue exists. Makes it hard to finetune the site.
      Thanks for help
