Disappearing Text, Links, Etc. - Possible Caching Problem?

Recommended Posts

Hello Pagelines Community,

 

I am struggling with a problem that a client is having with their site that was just built using DMS. The site is using DMS v1.1.6 and Wordpress 3.8.1 and the problem seems to be that when the cache is cleared and the client refreshes the page, text, links, etc. seem to disappear. 

 

I will attach 3 screenshots that help illustrate the problem and sequence of events. The first Screenshot is the correct view (aka how the page is actually supposed to look). The second screenshot is what happens when you first load the page (Expense Report link disappears but reappear when the user refreshes the page), and the third is when happens if you clear the cache and load the page (all links, headings, and text in the header and main page area are gone).

 

If anyone had any idea what might be going on here please let me know. I greatly appreciate the help and really need a starting point to figure out what might be happening here.

 

Thank you!

There's a couple of people who seem to be having this issue, is it just in chrome? I think from what I've seen online its related to fitvids.js so will report to the dev team and get them to look into.

Thanks for the link James B! It looks like here was the solution for the other designer:

 

"Just downloaded the latest fitvids from https://github.com/d...5000/FitVids.js

and replaced the script.fitvids.js inside dms/js folder and it is working."

 

I went to the GitHub repository and I am not sure exactly what I should do to fix this. Am I supposed to download the jquery.fitvids.js and put that in the dms/js folder? I don't see the script.fitvids.js that he was referring to so I am hesitant to modify anything just yet. Do you have any advice on what I should do in the meantime to the site doesn't have these problems?

 

Thanks James!

Hi James B, it looks like Chrome V 33.0.1750.117 m and IE 10 are both giving us problems. Thanks!

      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,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
