Working out what was used on the demo site

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I hope someone can help.  I was impressed by the demo page that I decided to upgrade to DMS2.  However, there are a few sections that I like the look of such as the FAQ page and want to recreate something like it, but can't work out how it was done.

 

I was wondering if there was a way that when viewing the demo page an explanation of what plugins or sections were used and what customisations were made.  That way, I reckon a number of people would be able to get the most out of DMS2.

 

Many thanks,

Gary

You could inspect the sections using your browser dev tools or Firebug. 

 

Alternatively - wait for the new update this weekend and the demo content is included as far as i know. You can then reproduce the sections used in the demo

 

Which sections are you interested in in particular?


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 Martin,
I did try to use the dev tool in Chrome and could work a bit of it out. I was particularly interested in the FAQ section and how the extended contact page was done. This I managed to reverse engineer but got stuck on the address section as how the city name above the address was bigger than the address.

I can't wait for the weekend even more now.

Regards,
Gary

The address is done with just a text box, with the city name being the Title. The FAQ is done with iBoxes


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!

This weekend will see the next version of DMS (2.0.5) it includes an updated import utility and will be capable of importing the entire demo.

 

The demo consists of purely DMS2, no custom sections, no child theme and no extra css.

      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!
