DMS 2 What is the recommended method for doing custom CSS on multisites?

4 posts in this topic

I have a multisite running DMS1 and I'm looking to upgrade to DMS2 soon.  I currently use the Pagelines Customize Plugin for my different sites' styles.   I don't see any mention of this plugin being used with DMS2 by users in the forum or any info about a different method for styling multisites using FTP.  


I have a couple questions.

  1. Does the Pagelines Customize Plugin still work for DMS2 in a multisite situation?
  2. Is there a way to do it with Danny's child theme?  If yes, what is the folder structure for the different sites?  It would be great to have one less plugin running.
  3. Or is there a new, better way?  (besides using the </> Custom panel)

1. The PageLines Customizer should work with DMS 2.x.


2. I don't use Multisite personally. However, as far as I know, you can not edit theme files in Multisite as its pretty much a security flaw if this was allowed and will need to use a plugin.


3. You can use either the Custom panel in DMS/Child theme or use a plugin such as Jetpacks custom CSS, which as far as I am aware works with MS.

Thanks Danny for getting back to me.  I'm glad you think that the Customizer should still work, but what if it doesn't?  Does Pagelines still support it?

Although, I haven't tested it, it is just a plugin, so it should work to my knowledge. If it doesn't which would surprise me, you can try this one (untested) -

    • Documentation on Wordpress multisite
      By surftown
      Hi there
      I'm still missing some documentation on Wordpress multistite and DMS 2 - where can i find this?
      I need some general guidelines on updates and installing.
      I do expect documentation on a product we pay for, and when i search in the forum i can see creating documentation on this matter have been on your to-do list for at least a year. The last update we made resulted on hundreds of blank pages and missing stylesheets - again no documentation on the pagelines docs, but for some reason this was described in the forum instead, i expect to find documentation on pagelines docs not here.  
      Looking forward to hearing from you. 
    • DMS and Multisite
      By finnes+
      Hi all.   I have a multisite installation, with 4 subsites on subfolder (not subdomain). 3 subsites have Pagelines Framework (last update), and just 1 with another theme.   I tryed many times install DMS after purchased with multisite installation. Well, when i typed the e-mail and license, don't saved correctly, and continuous ask me again for my pagelines information. I've tryed disabling all plugins as well.   All changes i've try, but don't saved.   Any ideias??   Just a "small" detail. 2 subsites with Pagelines Framework still on production sites. Just one is in test (construction). Sorry my bad english.   Link:  - (main site with pagelines framework) - (pagelines framework too) - (pagelines test) - (another theme).   All plugins and wordpress updated.

    • Local Multisite DMS activation not working

      Hi guys,
      trying to setup a wp multisite install on my pc using xampp.
      Everything looks good but I can't activate my dms 2
      I have installed the updater plugin but when I try to reach the page to submit my club key I get this message:
      "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." 
      Any suggestion?
      Hope you can help.
      One more thing: I'm the only user and I'm the network superadmin
    • Media Uploader not working on Multisite Domain Mapped subsites
      By sticktrix1
      Hi guys, so the Media Uploader (Library) doesn't work on Domain Mapped subsites, but it works fine on un-mapped sites.
      This isn't the uploader where you upload files from your computer, but the Media Library button, it brings up the 'media library' pop up box, but it's just completely whited out. This means that domain mapped sites can ONLY upload new files, and not insert files from their media libraries.
      Would love to get a fix for this as it's very limiting.
      Cheers guys :)
