Website speed issue

How does the DMS go about the recompiling?  I have Nicks' Base theme installed, and we just checked the upload > pagelines fodler and found 767 .css files, which appear to be being compiled even when we dont make a change to the css, but on page refresh when logged in for example.  767 is a hell of a lot?

 

Any help would be hugely appreciated


Many thanks

when you click 'save' it should delete the 'active' one and create a new one.

 

Yea there should never be 700+ files there, there is something weird going on there. Maybe php cant find the files? perhaps its being restrcted somehow? Is there anything in the php logs?

Could you oh-so-kindly take a look please www.localbustorbay.com/localbus  :D

 

If you inspect elements and navigate around some of the pages, you will see the compiled-css that certain pages are looking for differs per page, and some find it fine, and others are looking for a completely different older .css file.

 

Perhaps something is being restricted, we are using Cloudflare and W3 TC, with minify turned off and rocketloader, along with the settings for Cloudflare on minimum while W3 has the usual set up.  This compiled CSS things has pretty much taken up our whole day trying to look into it haha, doing our heads in!

 

Sorry to lumber this on you, I just feel your knowledge of PL is so much greater than ours that you could perhaps see what it is we are missing here as it seems the compiled css is having some major issues for us.

 

You can still login with the previously sent info if you need to, we have enabled php debug now.


Many thanks

We have everything pretty damn fast now with CF and W3 TC, even if we don't have a clue what we are doing haha!  The residing issue however was the sites difficulty in finding the dynamic css file, so in the end I added my LESS, compiled the css, copied and pasted that into Nick's Child Theme stylesheet style.css and saved that as a fallback, which works.

 

I would still like to know going on how I would get over this issue though if you have any ideas. 

 

I am impressed with the DMS but have had serious issues with saving/writing settings to the DB using MAMP/AMPS, and even when live, I find that the system is very hit and miss in whether or not the settings/Custom LESS CSS actually saves.

 

LOVE the concept, but these issues seem to occur on the four installs I have tried so far which is a bit unsettling.  Id love somebody to say I'm doing something wrong but I don't feel there is much to go wrong locally on a fresh install?

 

(things like creating a home page template, saving it, then applying that to another page resulting in all the images on that page resetting to default and a lot of the text disappeared.)


Many thanks

Are the four installs all with the same hosting?

Two of the installs are local, and two are hosted on Heart 


Many thanks

Well i cant comment on local installs, impossible for us to support that, unless you want me to take a spin down there on the bike lol.

As for both remote installs they are both installed on the same shared hosting.

 

Im still convinced theres something funky going on with how they have PHP configured. Trouble is with cheap shared hosts they wont ever adjust their settings for one user. Thats why a VPS is always the best way to go IMO, and your free to do what you like then and if one site goes wild on the server and drains all the resources your site will remain online.

Right OK, take on board what you mean about the VPS and shared hosting!  Still seems odd that I am having the same issues across platforms with local and hosting, and the saving to DB is quite an annoying one.

 

Ooo yes please that would be excellent haha!  We can put the kettle on and get some snacks at the ready!

 

We have Nicks child theme installed under Pagelines at the moment, and suddenly we are having a php issue randomly popping up with Nick's Base theme which can only be resolved by renaming his theme to reset them.  Something about Fatal Error functions line 39 on nicks child theme with calling pl_add_theme_tab($options); string?  No idea what has caused that to pop up, I am attempting a complete delete and reinstall of the child theme but it was working fine earlier today.


Many thanks

      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,

      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?

      Hello There,
      So i want to use platform 5 and DMS sections on a single page, i am using a child theme with pinspro as my main theme and i activated platform 5, the only problem am having so far is the fixed option, my navbars are not aligning to their default size, and it will be great if platform 5 header and footer section will function, has anyone used this option, how can i make the best use of platform 5 and DMS on a site
      Cheers

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
