DMS not loading with Flatten theme

Recommended Posts




As of a day or so ago, when I go to my site it says "loading dms editor" and it seems to be stuck there.  I've tried deactivating plugins, which did not work.  Then I ran the javascript console and it came up with this error:


Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'smartFlatMenu' 


event.returnValue is deprecated. Please use the standard event.preventDefault() instead.


I haven't worked much with javascript and fear I would destroy something if I tried to find line 46 and edit the file.  Then, I changed the theme to the primary "twentyfourteen" and things seem to be working fine.  So I'm taking a guess that it's a problem with the theme.  Has anyone else had this problem or can assist me in solving it?  


Much thanks!!




I am using the free version of DMS with Flatten Theme and the latest version of Wordpress.


ps.  I posted this over in DMS free version section but didn't get a response, not sure i it's a problem I posted more than once for the same topic.

I believe this has to do with a change in the timing of DMS 2's initialization. I've run into the same problem myself with my product, DepthCharge and am in the process of fixing it. It actually requires a complete rewrite of how we load the library. Flatten will likely need to be rewritten by the author as well.

Are you using the last version of Flatten Version 2.0?, if not please update 2.0 Flatten version is DMS 2.0 compatible.

I just installed the latest version of DMS2 today and tried to install the newest 2.1 version of Flatten and every time I try to get it working it gives me this error:


Fatal error: Class 'PageLinesPostType' not found in /home/content/57/8255357/html/2014/wp-content/themes/flatten/sections/collapser-flat/section.php on line 301


I tried to install by uploading the Flatten zip file to the themes in WordPress. Is there something I'm doing wrong or is there a bug? Please let me know how to fix this, I'm working on a client site and need to get this up and running ASAP. Thanks!

      Love my responsive site - I don't have a " mobile url" because my site is responsive. - but on mobile, my site opens to a blank wordpress with a horrid menu. The viewer  has to navigate to some--> tiny tiny light blue link that says " see full site". <-- To see my site -
      I don't know if this is a pagelines issue, a flatten template theme issue , a wordpress issue or hosting issue, or dns issue. 
      How can I make my full responsive template site -> be  <- the site they see right away? instad of that untemplated linked wordpress page.
      Did I mention net week I have an interview and a few key folks  will be looking at my site over the week - omg  - 
      Thank you anyone who can help!!

      Hi, I am using DMS2 - and Wordpress 4.2.2., not Flatten but could not see how else to post this topic.  I recently bought the Video Slider plugin and after I uploaded and activated it, my site won't load (this is what I see... Oops, There may be an issue loading.
      DMS typically loads in less than 5 seconds. Please check for Javascript or PHP errors.
      (Typically, slow or incomplete loading is related to plugin conflicts or server issues.)
      View the Troubleshooting Guide  
      I thought the problem was probably a conflict with my site's other plugins, so I deactivated each plugin one by one.  That was not the problem.  The culprit itself is the Video Slider plugin.  I then tried to upload the plugin on my other sites and still have the same problem.  Not sure what to do next to resolve this.  Here's my url - http://www.lorilaws.net/ Thanks in advance.

      I'm crossposting here... as Flatten uses the portfolio section...
      I purchased the portfolio section separately, and wanting to use it with my site which is about to go from Frameworks to DMS..
      Please advise if there are updates to the section so I can incorporate it...
      I love the portfolio!
