Why did DMS 2 Kill most of my styles?

Recommended Posts

reformedmedia

I experimented with it on my local machine, but I don't see how that helps. It killed all of the styles that I worked so long on. Am I going to have to redo all of my sites again? My clients are not very happy that I have to keep redoing their sites. I would think this would be more seamless. Any help?

the steps to upgrading are here http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/33474-dms-20/

 

Make sure you follow the advice here. Make sure you install the update on your dev environment first and never on a live site as you have done with your local installs. 

 

When you say DMS killed your styles how did the site look before you upgraded? What has changed?

I'm not sure if you have had the same issue as me. In my case I had 3 minor less errors (a missing mixing declaration and 2 missing variable declarations) in my .less file and whereas DMS 1 ignored these DMS 2 didn't and it threw everything out. I went through my css with a fine comb testing by removing all the css and adding it in, refreshing and testing again. On identifying the errors (always flushing the cache) and then refreshing the sites layouts all came back under DMS.

HI,

 

When you say styles what are you actually referring to specifically, do you mean your custom CSS ? If so, you will probably want to check that your CSS/LESS is valid, if you have even the smallest of errors, this will cause the LESS/CSS to not compile, you need to make sure your CSS is valid without any mistakes such as missing ; { } : etc...

However, if you can clarify what you mean by styles, that would be appreciated.

hi guys,

sorry for the long time to get back to this post. Other things came up.

 

Attached are two examples of what broke. I was wrong in saying that all the styles were "killed" My apologies. It did mess up my header. I was able to get the menu back, but for some reason the gradient that I'm using is doing something weird. I've experimented with it to get it back to normal, but it won't change.

 

Thanks.

I ended up recreating the header section. That seemed the easiest fix after working on it too long.

Did this resolve the issue then?

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
