DMS 2 Template state not updating.

5 posts in this topic

I have an issue with the current template status not updating.  The part not working is in the Top bar that shows the login information.  I have highlighted the section in yellow in my image.


If you look in the edit portion of the screen it's showing the right template being loaded, in my case "Default",  For the page named "FAQ."  You can also see that the Active template is "Default" in the Pagelines editor (bottom frame/bar).


The top section is not updating the template that's loaded.


It always says Template: Custom(no template) even though you can see from the orange box in the edit area that it is the "default" template and it shows the right template loaded in the bottom.


It seems to be working, just not updating which one is loaded.  I can continue to work on my site because I understand what's going on.  Someone that does not underatand the templates yet might have problems.

Was working fine, then I changed my theme from Nick's Base Theme Template to Headlines then changed back.  That's when I noticed it wasn't updating the active template.

What version of DMS are you using ? Also, does this happen for you when using DMS as the active theme and not child theme ?

I have version 2.0.4


The Pageinfo (bottom left in bottom frame) is showing correct template.  It does the same thing in DMS as main theme or Nicks base theme.


I'm having another issue that i didn't think was related but it makes sense that it might be the cause of the DMS issue. 


My URLs in my content are getting additional characters.  The menu items are ok but all URLs in my text of page or in a widget are getting "%E2%80%8E" added to the URLs.


HERE IS MY POST on forum for that:

    • Page Content Disappeared when Logged In
      By flourishdesignstudio+
      I am having a unique problem in which our website is appearing correctly when I am logged out of DMS but when I am logged in and view the front of the site the main content area disappears. The page content still exists in the WP editor in the backend but from the front everything disappears. This happens on almost all the main pages but not on every single one which made me think it was a template problem but this is happening across several templates, not just a single one. Any thoughts on what might be causing this?
      I am attaching screenshots of the same page when I am logged out versus when I am logged in. Thanks so much in advance for the help!

    • Multiple Archive Templates?
      By jennajonesdesign
      Is it possible to have multiple archive templates? Sometimes I don't like to have all of my posts grouped together. On the current site I am working on we have a "Job Openings" section completely separate from a "News and Events" section. All I am trying to do is add a different header to each section, but even when I save as separate templates they keep over-riding each other. I am unlocking first. 
      Is this just error on my part, or is it not currently an option to have multiple archive templates?
      Let me know! Thanks!
    • How would I build this?
      By abuzzelli+
      How would I build a page like this so the content would be editable in wordpress?
      The page scrolls down and there are many sections. I'm not sure how to set up a pagelines template that can be used on many pages that would also be editable in either wordpress pages, posts or widgets. Any suggestions?

      Does anyone know how to scale down the h1-h6 tags within the template section?
      I want to keep the native sizes in the header, fixed bar, and footer sections.
    • PL-Nextbox issue
      By abuzzelli+
      I'm trying to translate custom PHP templates that a developer coded into pagelines templates. I'm trying to paste the php into a nextbox, but I'm getting this error:
      Looks like your NextBox PHP resulted in an error :/
      Here's the code. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
       * The template used for displaying page content in front-page.php

          <article id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class(); ?>>
              <header class="entry-header">
                  <?php if ( ! is_page_template( 'page-templates/front-page.php' ) ) : ?>
                      <?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>
                  <?php endif; ?>
                  <h1 class="entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>

              <?php get_template_part( 'content', 'vehicle-gallery' ); ?>

              <div class="entry-content">
                  <?php the_content(); ?>
                  <?php wp_link_pages( array( 'before' => '<div class="page-links">' . __( 'Pages:', 'twentytwelve' ), 'after' => '</div>' ) ); ?>
              </div><!-- .entry-content -->
              <footer class="entry-meta">
                  <?php edit_post_link( __( 'Edit', 'twentytwelve' ), '<span class="edit-link">', '</span>' ); ?>
              </footer><!-- .entry-meta -->
          </article><!-- #post -->
