DMS not loading in Chrome

Recommended Posts

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!

      Hi everyone,
      Flywheel have reported errors on my clients site 'www.racewaredirect.co.uk' and it's not loading. Can someone please provide some information on how to fix this? The site has never experienced these issues before.
      Thanks,

      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.

      Hi
      I found this topic
      which talks about a similar issue I am having, but a little different. Hope someone can help me out.
      Best way to see the problem is to view http://cassclayton.com/ on Safari (Mac) compared to Firefox or Chrome. You will see the banner just under the fixed menubar has a gap between the menubar and top of the banner. Looking at Inspector, I found:
      <div class="fixed-top-pusher" style="height: 62px;"></div>
      <script> jQuery('.fixed-top-pusher').height( jQuery('.pl-fixed-top').height() ) </script>
      and indeed it seems the jquery is not always working consistently. For instance, if you simply refresh the page in Safari, it will loose the gap and all looks fine, so is it a browser cache issue that is interacting with the jquery? I do have W3 Total Cache installed. There must be a way to tell the code to make sure jquery is up and running and available to do it's majic?
      And perhaps there is just a better way to do this banner? Originally I tried several DMS sections and used the banner image as background, etc... Kept running into problems with resizing and the left/right parts of the image were getting chopped off. It is important the whole image show, so currently I just use a NextBox section with this code:
      <img src="[pl_site_url]/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/CassClayton-blues-tribute-banner.jpg" width="100%" />
      and it looks the way it should. Is there a better way to place a banner graphic under a fixed navbar and make sure the whole banner graphic displays regardless of screensize?

      Hi guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hello There,
      So i want to use platform 5 and DMS sections on a single page, i am using a child theme with pinspro as my main theme and i activated platform 5, the only problem am having so far is the fixed option, my navbars are not aligning to their default size, and it will be great if platform 5 header and footer section will function, has anyone used this option, how can i make the best use of platform 5 and DMS on a site
      Cheers
