DMS not loading in Chrome

Recommended Posts

Iain Griffin

Hi folks, 

 

I'm not able to load the DMS editor in Chrome properly. The page loads but without any CSS styling or drag and drop abilities (see screen grab).

 

I did recently update my .htaccess file with caching code to help speed my site up. Thinking this may be the problem I've now removed and reverted to a standard .htaccess file.

 

I was also running W3 Total Cache, but I've cleared all caches and deactivated the plugin.

 

I've even reinstalled a database from a few days ago as I know this problem wasn't happening before I made these recent changes.

 

I've cleared my browser cache and still nothing seems to get it to load.

 

It's strange because I'm running exactly the same set-up on another WP install and this is working fine!

 

The site address is www.four-is.com.

 

Install details are:

 

WP: 3.8.1

DMS: 1.1.5 (with child theme active)

 

Any leads on what I might try next greatly appreciated.

Hello Iain 

 

Using any form of caching on your site will cause this problem. Site caching should only be used when your site is completed and no more edits are to be made. Use of cache plugins and the problems they cause are well documented on the forum. 

 

Remember to to completely clear the cache plugin when deactivating otherwise you will have further problems like this. It could be possible that there are still entries in your htaccess file relating to the cache plugin ao best to check there. 

 

Also try disabling all other plugins to rule out a conflict with another plugin and DMS. 

 

Please let us know if you are still having problems after you have checked this. 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

HI Martin,

 

Thanks for replying. Yes, point taken about using cache plugins. 

 

I'm happy to say I've eventually resolved the problem. Having checked again the htaccess file, deactivating and reactivating my plugins the fix seems to have come from switching the theme from my child DMS to the master and back again.

 

Something was obviously causing a glitch somewhere, but this seems to have reset it.

 

All's well now and I'll leave caching well alone!

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.

      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.
