OK, as far as I can tell there appears to be a saving issue when your active page is a single post, which is rather odd. I have reported this to our tracker. Thanks for assisting in bringing this weird one to light.

You can view the ticket here - https://github.com/pagelines/DMS/issues/705

Thanks for the update, Danny.


I've been talking with support at WP Engine about different style showing up when logged in vs logged out.


The problem started to affect the live site, as well (it seems like my domain is haunted).


They ended up creating a copy of the live site, which was still on DMS 1.1.8.


The copied site did not have any of the invalid CSS (this may or may not be important).


I updated the live site to DMS 2.0 (uploading, network-activating, and adding license key to the PageLines updater) made a couple of minor edits where styles didn't come over (font awesome and different class name/s for fixed header/nav) and everything is fine on the live copy site.


We learned during the process that the original deployment of that installation did not go smoothly:

  • It was a single site installation (on a different host) that I opted to run multi site on when adding to WP Engine as part of migration (apparently, migrating a single site and opting for multi site guarantees problems, something that they should probably address in advance)
  • wp.config.php had some problematic lines
  • .htaccess was missing a key line (that was occasionally causing homepage to return an error)

Not sure which, if, in fact, any of these issues was behind the problem I was/am having, but since the copy of the live site - minus problematic CSS from the start - looks as it should, the answer may be there somewhere.


I think there was another thing or two that emerged but I can't recall what they were at the moment.


If/when they come back to me I will post them here in the hopes that they help lead to a conclusion about what went wrong.


In any case, it appears that I am all sorted out and it appears that the problem may have been a result of a problematic installation/deployment.

Relieved to be able to report that I updated the live site to DMS 2.0 and everything works as it should.


I think it's safe to conclude that the problem/s were the result of a somewhat rocky migration and installation.

Good News - thank you for letting us know 

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 everyone, since Instagram had allowed to publish in different ratio formats (instead of only square ratio) the grams stripe has different heights. Can you tell me if i can fix it easily with some CSS?

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      Hi guys!
      I am using the LESS/CSS Pagelines extension and tried to add the following code to make use of FontAwesome:
      a.c2a:before {
          content: "\f07a\00a0";
          font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Pro";
          Font-weight: 900;
          font-style: normal;
          font-weight: normal;
          text-decoration: inherit;
          padding-left: 4px;
      The issue is that as soon as I have the CSS via the Custom Styling text box, Pagelines (or the extension) strips out the backslashes (\). As a result, I had to abandon the CSS/LESS extension and instead add all my CSS code to a separate .css file.
      Is there a fix or workaround for this?

      Hello, I am having a problem similar to that experienced by Michael Kummer here. We have pages that show this automatic scrolling issue (examples here and here) and it is sufficiently annoying that we have seen customers bounce while trying to convert. Strangely, it only happens at specific resolutions, so it can be difficult to reproduce. In general we can only consistently reproduce it on a 4k resolution with a browser width between 1517 and 1536px. 
      Thanks to Michael Kummer's help we were able to set the overflow-anchor property to none in the entire body, which fixed the issue as far as we can tell, but also obviously disabled scroll anchoring for the whole site. I tried applying it to the specific element that looked like it was being reloaded, which was the PL Meganav extension, but that was unsuccessful. 
      Can anyone help us figure out which element or ID we can apply this property to, so that we can fix the scrolling issue but not disable scroll anchoring for the entire site?
      Thank you -

      I'm trying to add a Careers page to a site to display job openings. The plan is to create a Post using a subcategory 'Careers' and then display those on the page. All of the post sections in PL seem to include images and there's no obvious way to remove them or include an excerpt from the post. 
      Any suggestions?
