HI there Pagelines Friends!

 

I'm looking into creating a custom RSS feed for my blog and was wondering if you had any advice as to the best way to do this. I'm ALWAYS hesitant to modify the Functions.php file, so I wanted to see if you had run into this before and what you would suggest. 

 

I found this article to be very helpful, but I wanted to see what you thought before diving in and actually trying to do this! Thanks so much for your time!

Hello brightonkeller

 

make sure any changes you make to the functions.php file are made in your sites CHILD THEME. if you make changes to the core files we cannot support you with that. 

 

Steps for customisation are available here http://docs.pagelines.com/customize/how-to-customize

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. 

 

Please do not send me private messages. Occam's razor - The principle states "Keep things simple!"

Hi brightonkeller

Please, first you can see this

http://docs.pagelines.com/support-troubleshooting/white-screen-of-death

What child theme are you using?

You can use this Danny´s child theme

This works fine to me

      In the past I would use nextbox for this task. However, Platform 5 does not have nextbox. I will do my best to describe what I am trying to do.
      I am creating a template for coaches, each product has its own link but they all share a common coach id. I want to set up the templates with the links for each product with a variable for the coach id so that I can change the coach id for all the links on the site by just changing the value of the variable $coachId. To do this I'll need to do something like the following...
      <a href="salesite.com/productcodes/referringRepId=<?= $coachId ?>" target="_blank">Product Purchase Link</a> Is it possible to do this with Platform 5?

      I read a lot lately about how much faster PHP 7 is than older versions. Is PL5 compatible with 7?
      Does anyone have experience with running their whole PL5 site on PHP 7? Would love to hear your experiences.
      Thanks, Jan

      I've been trying to upload a video to use as a video background, but the size was 12m, and the alotted max file size is 8m. I downloaded a couple of pugins that increase the size by creating php.ini files and all of that jazz, but to no avail. It would say (Max file size = 250mb) but after I uploaded I would get an "HTTP ERROR",
      Soooo I logged into my cpanel and saw that the php I was using was 4 version out of date. I upgraded my php to PHP 5.6 and now I get
      Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 39583744) (tried to allocate 15 bytes) in /homepages/39/d200014696/htdocs/dymondentertainment.com/wp-content/themes/dms/dms/includes/less.plugin.php on line 848
      When I activiate another theme that is not pagleines, the site works fine.... but will no longer work with Pagelines DMS Version 2.2
       
      My site has no gone dark. What can I do?

      In DMS we used to have the section "PLNextBox"that was pretty handy for adding php code in different parts of the page. I used it a lot in global sections like the footer and header to detect what is the current language of the site and based on that output the right string.
      Is the embed section going to support php in the future? are you bringing PLNextBox to PL5? is there another way to work with multiple languages for the global footer and header sections?

      I installed DMS for a new site and got an error message on install and when I install any plugin.
      Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /nfs/c09/h04/mnt/208781/domains/prevailcoffee.co/html/wp-content/themes/dms/dms/includes/less.legacy.php on line 818
      I installed the latest DMS 2.1.9.6
       
      Please advise. I'm now having issues getting any plugins to work. Not sure what to do next.
      thanks,
