Is there a repository somewhere in a WordPress installation (the database?) for all of the section info/data created in a DMS2-based WordPress installation? In other words, if one wanted to replicate on a new DMS2-based site the entire collection of sections including exact preferences that were set up for an existing DMS2-based site, is it possible to just copy the file with those details into the new site's database? (I'm not talking about any LISS/CSS entries, which I am sure could be cut and pasted from the existing to the new, as-is.)
I have heard many ways other developers create sites. Having been in business for myself for 2 years now, when I get ready to build a site for a client, I always create a folder off of my main domain name and then install Wordpress to that folder and create the site "live" basically.
I have now been reading how others build "locally" and then transfer to the client when they are complete. This is great and I have downloaded Xampp and set up two dummy sites pretty quickly and I LOVE the speed at which things move AND the fact I can develop anywhere.
I have 3 questions though:
1. Is there anyway to share the local site I'm developing on my computer with a client (minus doing screenshares)? With it being local, I can only see it on my laptop but if someone else pulled that up, they, of course, would not be able to. I thought I remember hearing a long time ago Xampp or Wamp or one of them had the ability to show your local site online to someone?
2. (I'm in bed now) but I will check tomorrow but I got to thinking as I laid down...since developing locally provides a huge speed increase in adding pages, content, plugins, etc, is it possible to work within DMS if I'm somewhere and DON'T have an internet connection or do I still need that connection "present" so when it has to talk to the server, it can?
3. What is the best way to deploy a local site to a live server for the client and will DMS fully switch over?
These may seem like silly questions but I have just now decided to build locally and after playing around a bit today with it, I LOVE it and it seems to speed things up a lot and I can now stop adding tons of Wordpress installs off of my main domains.
Installing my website, which uses DMS, on localhost - almost all of my sections disappear. For some reason only "post loop" remains, and all media boxes, text boxes and so on are invisible or gone. I am still at dms 1.0.4 (I want to have it working locally before upgrading due to prior problems with DMS upgrades.)
mod_rewrite is enabled and permalinks are fine, just DMS content is missing. I've also tried exporting/importing the json settings from live to local but it made no difference. Is there something special I need to do in order to use dms on localhost??? It's driving me mad :(
Does the personal profile being installed on a localhost server (my personal mac) for testing and building a theme? After that, can i install it on a real server online? Does that mean two (2) installation so the Personal profile is not right because is just for one (1) installation? Thanks
I am running MAMP PRO for local development. After considerable headaches (see my other post!), I have setup a local development environment at a special local domain name: www.mysite-localdev.com:8888
The live site is located at www.mysite.com
My question is, how can I use the Pagelines store in my local environment? I obviosly don't want to activate the local devlopemnt site address (www.mysite-localdev.com:8888), only the live site address, but I can't use the live site locally. If I activate it, does that use up one of my six product activations? If so, how can I get access to the store when developing locally without activating?
Is the only way to do this, to use the same address for the local development site, as the live site (pushed local via the HOSTS file)?
