Recommended Posts


On my blog it shows my email and I am getting spam.

  1. How do I protect myself from myself from spam?
  2. Do I want it removed?

The reason as to why your email is being shown is because you have set your Wordpress username as your email address. You should never use your email address as a username for this very reason.

Therefore, I think the best course of action is for you to either add a Display name in your Wordpress profile or create a new user, make them an admin and do not have their username set as an email address.

Please search our forums, before posting!

      Is there any way to configure the PL Signup email section, so that I can redirect successful 'subscribers' to a stand alone, separate "thank you page", instead of keeping them on the home page? 
      Here's my site;  http://dwelltrade.com
      thank you in advance.

      Hello,    I wonder which way to insert the email contact in the Poppy Contact Form plugin .  Well from what I saw just enter the shortcode and the button now starts to work, but how do I know where you're going emails that are written by this plugin?

      I emailed your support for help about downloading the DMS over 48 hours ago and haven't had a reply.
      I was just wanting to have someone read my email and reply to it please. If I'm doing something wrong when trying to download please let me know.  EG. Do I have to a make a new account even if I am a pagelines pro member already?
      PS Seems to be a few disgruntled customers out there because support aren't responding?

      Hello Pagelines Team,

      I was trying to get in touch pre-sales but could not find any other way than registering with the forum. If this is the wrong section of your forum then please move the post accordingly.

      Two things.

      1. Question about the licenses available.

      Following situation. I design for a few friends and businesses. This work should be done within 2-4, maximum 6 month. During this time I am happy to pay the Business licence per month and evaluate Pagelines at the same time.

      Since the sites will all be static once done I wonder what happens after I run out of the licence.

      Basically I won't need to touch the site anymore and the clients should be happy with the work.

      Will Pagelines, however, insert some sort of link or note after I have run out of the Business license?

      Does this mean, for as long as the license is paid the Pageline links (in the footer I assume) can be removed, however if I move on or decide to leave the license as is, as the work on the site is done, Pagelines will indeed edit the site and insert a link or note? (Says you "don't mess with sites", but what should we call this then and is there a way to buy out of it? Money is not the issue for the time being, happy to pay for a Business or Developers license.)

      This ultimately means that Pagelines does bind customers and developers to paying a monthly fee for the link credit to stay out of the site, even though the site is done and the client is happy with the work. Is this assumption correct?
      If this is the case, what license does need to be purchased, so that sites I have worked on stay as they were originally designed, even after I run out of the license and have stopped using Pagelines? Is there a way to use Pagelines, no matter what licence, design sites with it, and once done, stop using Pagelines, let the license run out BUT have the sites I worked on stay 100% like they were finished without credit link?
      Thanks for any help with this.

      2. I noticed a slight hiccup with the registration & password recovery links being sent out via email.

      The registration link that has been sent to me was:
      http://forum.pagelines.com/index.php?app=core&module=global§ion=register&do=auto_validate&uid=USER_ID_HERE however it should have been:
      http://forum.pagelines.com/index.php?app=core&module=global&section=register&do=auto_validate&uid=USER_ID_HERE See the difference between
      §ion=register and
      &section=register ? Somehow the
      § eats up the
      &sect of the link.

      Same goes for password recovery links. Not sure if this is happening to every registration email or password recovery link sent out, however it did happen to me. Seems either the link got parsed incorrectly during transmission or was sent out incorrectly to start with.

      After a little while I spotted the error and was able to verify and log on. Admins might want to look into this, just a heads up really.
      So yeah, hope to have been of help with the info about the links and would likewise be tremendously happy about input on my first question. Not holding back to get a Business or Developer license if this issue with the credit link can somehow be explained to me.
      Best Regards
      Gosh after I posted I see that even the section sign https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Section_sign put in code quotes in the forum will not show up correctly but will always display the HTML entity!! Even when put in code quotes! Not sure if this is wanted or not but since I had issues registering you might want to look into this.

      I was was wondering if you had any plans to add to the Twitter, Facebook, Google+, branding of Framework an email subscription button. I would like to have this on my site and I like the built in buttons. If this has been addressed somewhere else I apologize, please send me a link.
