Recommended Posts

I've spent two and a half hours searching the web and the forums for the wp-config.php setting to restore the legacy PageLines dashboard to wp-admin


Could someone enlighten me? Thanks in advance.

Not exactly sure what you mean, there are no settings in wp-config.php file for PageLines legacy dashboard (not even sure what you mean by legacy Dashboard).

Can you go into greater detail please.

Please search our forums, before posting!

There is a wp-config setting to enable the DMS PageLines control panel in the dashboard similar to the one in PageLines framework. Can't find documentation on it now to save my life but know it exists.

There is no such setting. There IS a page in wp-admin, as a fallback for editing css and js areas.

I know about the the LESS/CSS and JS editing areas. I've seen documentation on this for DMS on here in the past, but cannot locate it. Should I do so, I'll post on this thread.

Hi there, the fallback tab for the css/less and scripts is in the pagelines tab in the wp admin area - http://screencast.com/t/AA3QaCCdqLl


All other editing options for DMS are on the front end of the site using the live editor. So go to view your blog, www.my-site.com etc in chrome and at the bottom of the page you'll see the DMS control panel, all the section options and drag and drop options are inside there in DMS. http://screencast.com/t/AtXIThUj


There was a legacy sections plugin that was previously available, however this stopped working a good few updates back as all V2/Framework code was removed. There is no other code to add the options from the DMS control panel which displays in the front end to an admin panel in the wp admin area like the Framework used to have unfortunately.

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.

      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.

      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.

      On main Dashboard in Wordpress the pagelines extension is displayed.
      Once installed and account is added the extension is active.
      I Freaking accidentally closed the dialog box (X in upper right corner)
      Thinking that it would just not use the plugin for one page.
      BUT no..
      it actually completely disable all pages.
      How can restore all the work that done with the Pageline Extension?
      Do you really have to go back into the Database and find a restore point?
      That seems like really bad UI if you can wipe all your work out in JUST ONE CLICK.

      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?
