DepthCharge install

Recommended Posts


Perhaps I'm missing something but I thought I'd share an issue I had with the installation of the Depth Charge section. I orginally posted this in the ETC support forum, but I thought it might be useful here.


When I downloaded the Depth Charge Section from PL, I uploaded the entire depthcharge folder to the sections folder on my site. I think this is correct and it seems to be the normal practice when adding new sections, but perhaps I'm wrong.


When I uploaded the entire folder, it contained certain js files here: /depthcharge/sections/depthcharge/js/


But when I installed the section it is looking for the js files here: /depthcharge/js/


I've copied the js folder back up to the correct path and the console errors have disappeared, i.e., the js files are loading and the parallax is working. Yea!


Now if only I can get the sprite image to center like it's supposed to.

DepthCharge is a DMS only plugin. You install it as a plugin just like any other plugin. In fact, I believe almost all of the plugins in the store are to be installed that way. You no longer need to upload the directory into the section folder.


I'll answer your ticket right now. Thanks for the heads up.

      I've installed DMS2 and quickly found that the DepthCharge plugin corrupts my site - it gets stuck on the loading page after activating it in the plugin area.   

      Will DepthCharge be updating to support DMS2?

      Thank you!

      I just bought the depthcharge plugin,
      and I would like to see examples of how other users have implemented and used it on their sites.
      So please anyone who has a site using this plugin or anyone who has some links, I would appreciate it if you would share the links so I can see and get ideas and information about it.
      Also anyone who knows of a more in depth (no pun) and step by step tutorial (beyond the instructions that come with it) of how to use it, I would really appreciate the link as well.
      Thank you!

      I'm having difficulty with the plugin Depth Charge. It works great then it suddenly stops working. I'm using a Mac and my client is on Windows and we both notice it. Is this an install issue or a configuration issue? I'm attaching a screenshot of the configuration. I need to make this work 100% of the time. Please help.

      I have a DMS site thats locked up for about a week now.
      I've tried turning off plugins. I have depthCharge on it and think I might have some images in there that are too big.
      but if its on or not , the page is locked up in admin mode. none of the DMS options stuff shows.
      what should I do?
      this is the site: http://www.lexingtonsewage.com
      this is a screen cap of admin mode:

      Hi guys,
      So i have a huge issue with Depth Charge. Looks fine and works fine on a computer but when viewed on iPad or iPhone and i would imagine any other tablet or smart phone, it goes haywire. 
      Scrolling becomes jittery and makes the website unusable. Also when trying to scroll to the top of the page, where depth charge is the first section at the top, it cuts off depth charge and only shows the section below. So depth charge seems like it's not there. 
      Massive issues, i'm not really happy since i paid $40 for this. 
      Hoping it's a simple fix.
