How do headers & footers work with templates?

 

I have a site this isn't working as expected - header and footer were working normally - i.e. shared / global across all pages. Since I've saved a couple of the pages as templates the header and footer aren't always the same on every page.

 

Shouldn't the header and footer still be global?

 

I'm using DMS 1.1.5  and WP 3.6 and a child theme.

 

Thanks in advance :)

In addition the header and footer areas that were inheriting the global settings and content now seem to have lost their content partially.

Hi there, I've logged into the site and looked at the footer.

 

There's a text box appearing at the top of the footer on the homepage which has content in it, this doesn't appear in the rest of the pages. The textbox is present but the content is blank.

 

The reason for this is when entering the content for the textbox you've entered it in the local tab, not global. So it only populates on that page, not the rest - http://screencast.com/t/T5aOR96B8


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.

Thanks James, that was the first thing I checked when I saw there was a difference so either I'm going mad or it has somehow changed from when I looked at it. The thing is almost all the header and footer content disappeared without me doing anything so something odd happened. I then recreated the content again before I gave you access. The text box that is blank once apon a time was the same on all pages - ie was global then it all got screwed up.

 

Not really sure what has happened but will remove the local bit in the footer and see what happens.

 

Thanks for taking a look, much apprecaited. :)

        First of all, sorry for my bad English.  I am developing an ecommeece with wp, woocommerce, PL5 and quickshop, and I need to do some changes in the simple product grid. I want to change the classes of some divs, but I can't find the templates. 
      Also, I change the grid of the category products pages, but I didn't make it correctly.
      This is the cat archive's: http://globosdemar.com/wp/categoria-producto/camisetas-para-ninos-y-ninas/
      Can you help me?

      I have to say that I like the Layout and the Template based sections. Some of them are really impressive.
      One of the things that I would like to request though is the possibility of being able to dynamically rearrange the layout.
      An example of what I am talking about is take the Agency Section. It's current layout starts with the
      Splash Module then the Portfolio Module then the Service Module and so on and so forth.
      What would be great is if we were able to move these modules around. I.e have the Service Module first
      then maybe the Splash, and then the portfolio.

      I am using Jigoshop on a website that also uses PL5 and am running into an issue where the store pages do not allow me to use the PL5 editor. Is anyone else having this problem or know if a solution? 
      When I open the Chrome console I see the following error:
      site.js?ver=b199df:5 Uncaught ReferenceError: PLData is not defined
          at Object.setMasterModel (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at Object.init (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at HTMLDocument.<anonymous> (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at i (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Object.fireWith [as resolveWith] (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Function.ready (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at HTMLDocument.K (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
       
      The problem can be seen here: http://fingerlakesdistilling.com/shop/ where the sidebar, footer, and header do not show up. Any thoughts?
      Thanks so much!

      Hello,
      I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!
