Upgrade to DMS2 not showing dashboard items

Recommended Posts

tappy

I have just upgraded a local copy of my site to DMS2 and cannot access the dashboard screen options as per your upgrade advice. Please see attached screenshot of what I see.

 

I am using WP 3.8.3 and MSQ 5.6.12. I followed the upgrade instructions provided by Pagelines. The original site is based on pagelines v 2.44.

HI,

 

Not entirely sure what you're referring too ? What screen options ? DMS doesn't have an options panel like PageLines Framework, all DMS options/visual editor etc... are now on the front end of your site. 


Please search our forums, before posting!

Ok, Hi Danny, the doco suggests following a series of steps with the end result a site that looks like the old one under Pagelines. The 1st indication you are on the right track is the statement that you should see a "Dashboard and Your Account tab". I don't see this at all. In addition I managed to lose all the widgets (from view) that I moved in the deactivated state (as per instruction). At this stage I have nothing that resembles the old site. Should I see something similar or am I basically working from scratch to rebuild, using the new toolset? The site did look like this and now is nothing but a bunch of editable spaces.

Hello @Tappy 

 

In order to upgrade your site to DMS correctly please follow the steps outlined here http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/33474-dms-20/

 

There is no direct upgrade path from The PageLines Framework to the PageLines DMS system and thye step sin the link provided advise to not upgrade a live site.  If you have done so please ask your hosting provider to roll back to a previous backup.


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 
      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

      Hello,
      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:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      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!
