Templates... how to?

Recommended Posts


I;m trying to figure out the way these work... I was thinking saving a page configuration (blocks) would save the blocks only... but it appears to be saving blocks, content etc. And overwriting whatever was on the page when activated. Hmmm is that the way it's supposed to work? So I have to create a blank page with blocks, and not content... and apply that to a blank page? Also the template menu item in wordpress shows custom template all the time. I guess it will not show what DMD template I'm using?

Even if it is saying cutom template, you can view if there is a template associated with that page by looking at Page Setup in your DMS visual editor (as well as loading a template, updating a template with a current configuration, or save a new template, should you so wish). In Wp admin, you should be able to choose from your created templates to apply to a page you have already created or are creating


Templates vs custom sections vs pages... discussion about DMS and differences of opinion about how dynamic http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/33607-dms-templates-are-not-dynamic/

Chrome Developer tools - please use them. If you are not sure how, then it is easy to learn

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!

Er, that doesn't sound too good. I was wondering if I was imagining this, but there is currently no point of templates as they simply copy an entire page "with" it's content. So the configuration i.e. blocks, and sliders etc. cannot be saved. Wow. I just spent hours creating some pages and thought I could save a page template and add some sections to "those pages." Wiped out all the work I'd done… Bummer!

      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

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      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!
