Recommended Posts

Okay, this is really starting to p! ss me off.

 

I keep getting random header and footer resets. I've given up on doing anything with my footer - I'll make it the last thing I do. But now the header! 

 

That is, I'll be changing something somewhere else (adding a text box) now my header and fixed navbar have reset back to a default style and my logo in the media box is lost. How can these sections lose their setting all the time?????

 

Yes, I've turned off plugins: except custom sidebar, teammate and mail chimp for wordpress lite

Hi,

Can you provide a link to the site in question and make sure DMS debug mode is active please. Also, if you're using DMS Pro Tools, what settings do you have active ?


Please search our forums, before posting!

So now, I clone a text box and move it, it wipes out all the images and text from one ibox section above. the text box I cloned is empty. Other text boxes now reset themselves to the default "insert title here", etc. And, I can't save any templates.

 

How can cloning a text box delete content from another section???

Okay, anyone got any ideas about this?? Changes I'm making are not saving. I can delete all my CSS, then hit publish, then hit refresh and when it refreshes, all the CSS is still there. If I close down Chrome and restart, then I can make a couple of published changes and then it stops working again. Is this a Chrome thing? A DMS thing?

Hi there, the source code is showing that the page has been cached, http://screencast.com/t/yHtUZz1hbnEt so you are probably seeing the cached version show up. If you had the cache plugin active previously did you clear the cache file inside the plugin prior to deactivating it?


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 James B, No I hadn't, but then again I'd never really done anything with it and it's been deactivated for ages. I've gone back in and activated it, turned cacheing off and cleared the cache - although it said there were 0 files cached. I've deleted this plugin.

Hi there, has it been any better since the cache plugin has been dectivated? Or are you still getting resets.

 

If you are do you have any video embeds on the page, someone else has just posted something similar and they say they only have it happening on the pages where they've embedded video, so be interesting to see if it's something we could rule out or not.

Possibly...there seems to be less ongoing resetting of sections, etc. No I don't have any video. Yes, things still reset. For example, I started recreating my header again and it wiped out 3 ibox sections and two textbox sections on another page. There must be something happening on the DMS backend that is writing over the top and resetting sections to their defaults. How else could this happen?

 

Also, I can't create/emend templates as per another post.

      On my site www.modishmel.com I'm seeing the "blog post title" within the "pins" plugin section breaking words into multiple lines. See screenshot attached.
      Only seeing it in Firefox. Can you help?

      I haven't figured out how to get the "Sync Loaded Item" option in templates menu of Platform 5 to stay checked. It doesn't give me an option to save settings when I select it, and when I select it then click off the editor, it unselects. Also if I select it before loading a template, it doesn't stay checked there either.  Whats going on?

      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!

      WordPress 4.7.1 was released on 11th January.
      It introduced a new bug that stops certain filetypes from being uploaded.
      This bug unfortunately stops users from uploading SVGs with the Platform 5 builder.
      In the meantime if you need to upload an SVG or have any other image upload issues then please try this plugin that bypasses the mime checks that were introduced.

      EDIT: 4.7.2 has been released without the fix. Fix is now slated for 4.7.3

      Hello,
      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…
