Editor not showing page elements that are visible on live site.

Hi, I am having a weird problem with only one page on a client site.

http://www.penncommercial.edu/why-penn-commercial

Is showing two of the bottom footer bar in the live view, but only a single version of it in the editor. I've attached screen caps of both. I'd love to get rid of the top copy (since it does not seem to be properly in the footer), but can't do that if I can't edit it.

Yikes!

Hmm, look like two different text box sections as one has the URLS for the links added but one doesn't. One is in the Footer one in the page content.

 

Could you enable the debug for us in Site settings > advanced and let us know and we can look into this further

Hi Martin, 

 

Thanks a ton for taking a look! I've enabled debug as you suggested. Looking forward to any insight you can give and very much appreciate your time.

Martin,

 

So this is beyond weird… I enabled debug for you. Then I went to that page and realized that we needed to set the background image globally to "scroll"… 

 

Went to: Settings > Color & BG and changed "Set Background Attachment" to 'Scroll'.

 

From there, clicked "Publish"...

 

Refreshed the page and the menu item had been deleted completely site wide and all that was left was an empty text box with the "add text message". (This has happened a few times before -- where we edit or save a global setting and something else disappears entirely.)

 

Since we are used to this happening, I had the HTML already saved in a text file and copy/pasted it into the box… now there is only one instance of the menu bar.

 

So, that problem is fixed I guess. How and why it worked that way is beyond me (and I swear my photoshop skills didn't come into play when making those screen caps!!)

 

Any light you can shed on what we might have done wrong and why that text box emptied itself is much appreciated. 

 

Thank you.

Thanks for the update - the debug information is here http://www.penncommercial.edu/?pldebug=1/

 

There appears to be an issue with server permissions highlighted in the debug info 

 

DMS Internal Warning
Less Subsystem
Unable to set filesystem credentials

 

Please see this post for further information http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/30859-dms-upgrade-requires-write-access/

 

Please contact your host and make sure you have write permissions on your server setup

Thank you very very much Martin! I know you guys have gotten a lot of negative feedback about the shift to DMS over the past year, but I would like you to know that we have been exceedingly pleased at the "go the extra mile" level of support that you guys have offered. Thank you so much.

      Hi,
      When using the editor I am getting duplicate wordpress toolbars and an a nice error to go with it...
      I have them stack 4 high at one point.  Goes away with a refresh then re-appears.
      very odd.

      Hello there,
      We have started experiencing a crippling issue within the last few days. It seems that ever since three days ago the CSS will not load for our pages outside of the DMS editor. Inside of the editor everything appears to be looking fine, but after publishing and viewing the page in a new browser our elements are all over the place, and in the console it appears that there is an error stating that the CSS did not get loaded. Looking through FTP, it seems that the two CSS files in the pagelines folder in wp-content are now missing. We did not access this folder or modify any files prior to this.  What kind of problem could this be? We are totally halted on any work we can perform until this is solved, so any help would be greatly appreciated. 
      An example of the phenomenon: http://datesafe2.21thirteenhost.com/category/ask-mike/
      Best,

      I'm having a strange issue with a site I'm building. I thought it might have been a server issue, so I moved it to one I know works and it's still messed up. Basically when I have the DMS editor on it looks fine, when I turn the editor off everything looks wrong and I can't re-activate the editor unless I change the theme, then re-activate the DMS theme. Any ideas why this is happening?

      Hello-
      I was having trouble using the wordpress editor- getting a white screen when updating posts, and therefore edits were not saving. so I read all the threads and saw that I needed to upgrade to DMS 2.1.9.9. I did this, but i am still having the same issue.
      Restarted my browser.
      Deactivated plugins.
      Still happening- white screen upon updating posts. It goes to this URL when I hit update: http://www.thecosmicpath.com/wp-admin/post.php
      instead of this page: http://www.thecosmicpath.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=50784&action=edit
       
      Site: http://www.thecosmicpath.com
      wp 4.3
      DMS 2.1.9.9
      Please advise and thanks-

      ***Wanted to add an update to this. I have a development site with all the same credentials. And the issue is not occuring on the dev site. Could this be a cache thing? I cleared broser caches and restarted but that didn't work.....
