DMS not loading in Chrome

4 posts in this topic

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


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.

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!

      Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'post' of null
      Any idea what is wrong here?
    • DMS2 an "App Aware" theme?
      By vanessabt+
      Hi,  I am looking at bringing on a new client that we are doing a website redesign for.  Ideally I would like to use pagelines for this but we are also going to be potentially using phonegap to build a corresponding mobile app for the client and connecting it through the AppPresser core plugin to wordpress.  One of the conditions in order to do this is that the chosen theme that is installed in wordpress and that the website uses is an "app aware" theme.  Do you know if dms is an "app aware" theme?  I need to confirm this upfront because there will be no time to redevelop the site if it does not work.  We have a tight timeframe to complete the site and then phase 2 will be the app.  Please advise.  Thank you.
    • Visibility on mobile - tags or code?
      By mikeeg8+
      Is there a quick way to show/hide things on mobile and desktops please, i.e. like a shortcode or similar?
      I've used a bit of code, but wondered if that was the mode elegant way - is there something built into a media box, for example that would give me a hide on desktop toggle?
      Thank you

    • Popovers cut off screen edge.
      By respectgb+
      I'm having problems with bootstrap popovers being cut off the edge of the browser. I'm using the latest version of dms (2.2) and this problem occurs on all browsers tested. Please can you let me know how we can fix this?
