The steps to add links to feature slides are contained within the support documentation here http://support.pagelines.me/docs/sections/features/


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 guys, I wasn't able to add a new forum post. So I thought'd i'd post here. 

 

On my site http://www.mindfitltd.com/ the top rotating banner has 
disappeared! We are sending the site out to a big potential client today. 
Please can you help? 
 
We haven't made any major changes to the site, and the settings seem ok. 
 
I have disabled all plugins, and reactivated one by one, to no avail. The odd thing is that, Martin said that the banner was showing http://screencast.com/t/MUINhOPQAR but it's certainly no here on any device, or my clients. so odd :) (see my screenshot http://screencast.com/t/wFe3smm6rkT
 
Thanks for your help,
Steve

Hi there,

 

I can see the feature slider and its working. Your second screenshot hasn't come through unfortunately so I can't see the layout you're seeing. I see http://screencast.com/t/fX3s0Rhm

 

Have you tried viewing in another browser? In case there is a browser add on which is conflicting with the slider code.

 

Just as a side note, your site is using the Platform Pro theme which unfortunately is a legacy theme and isn't supported anymore. We advise considering moving to the latest DMS theme for future projects as this remains relevant with WordPress where Platform you'll find will have issues as WordPress updates in future.


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.

This is what I see.  Same in all browsers...
What is the latest DMS? Please send more info. I'm sure you said lifetime support when I paid for it. $97 is a lot for a theme that's not supported after 18 months.

Hi there,

 

That's strange as I can see it in all browsers. I notice you have super cache installed, try clearing the cache file inside the plugin and deactivating after it's flushed. Then clear the cache and cookies inside the browser before reviewing the page. It definitely seems like a local issue, are you behind any kind of firewall or setup which could block specific files?

 

Support for Platform was for the life of the product, so until it becomes a legacy etc. DMS is the latest release from PageLines and the next step up from the PageLines Framework. It's a live drag and drop theme which allows you to insert sections directly on the live page a bit like a 'what you see if what you get' style editor.

 

You can see more on DMS here - http://www.pagelines.com/dms/

stevelight82 - Please do not hijack threads with a completely different, unassociated issues or question. Please create your own topic, if you're having difficulty posting a new topic (I can't see why you have that problem), please contact our helpdesk.

 

hello at pagelines dot com

 

In regards to your issue, you're using Platform Pro, which has been considered a legacy theme since Dec 2011 and was replaced with PageLines Framework. PageLines Framework has since been replaced with PageLines DMS. We do not provide support for Platform Pro any longer, as its now a legacy theme. I would highly recommend upgrading to a DMS or at least PageLines Framework.

 

However, in regards to your issue Platform Pro never contained a rotating banner option or section, therefore, you're most likely using a third party extension, which is something we do not provide support form. Also, your Cache is not configured correctly, you have the following message on your website.

 

<!-- WP Super Cache is installed but broken. The constant WPCACHEHOME must be set in the file wp-config.php and point at the WP Super Cache plugin directory. -->

 

Therefore, you will need to resolve this error and disable all active plugins and see if this resolves your issue, if it doesn't. Please create a new topic, as hijacking is not tolerated and when creating your new topic regarding your issue please link to this topic so our staff have something to reference.

 

vicdesotelle - First of all, we apologise for all the email notifications you have likely received which had no relation to your issue. Unfortunately, it is not possible to link the Posts image out of the box and would require making changes to the sections core functionality, which is something we do not support. You will either have to contact one of the developers on our page here or use a plugin.


Please search our forums, before posting!

      Is there a way to use the whole image in the feature slider as a link? I have searched the forum and noticed in 2011 this was posted and the reply was no. Has anything changed in 4 years?

      I'm using features on the landing page of my website. My issue is that when the page loads the feature slider will resize itself every time. I've tried to tinker around with the layout of the site (static, responsive, %, px) and with the source images (not to big, the actual size) but it doesn't help. Any tips? 
       
      Here's a video of how it looks:

      The features images are not displaying properly. The first image is blank and the second displays this script: if (document:)document.getElementbyld("divcb6b4a52").style.height = (441-440)+"px";
       
      There should only be 8 images to display, but it adds two images before that are blank and have that text I indicated.

      Hello 
       
      We've recently added the top rated Word Press translation tool WPML to our Website in order to translate our site into a second language. Everything worked like a charm, except one thing: the PlatformPro features. 
       
      Our home page was designed in English with the features slider and some text, using what is now the Select Feature-Set for Posts & 404 Pages option so that we could custom create our features. The features are tagged as default-features so that they may be selected to appear in the scroll. The thing is, we cannot translate them. 
       
      Can someone please help me figure out a work around please?
       
      Many thanks
