Header Section/Image Issues

Recommended Posts


When I am previewing in DMS 2.0.6, and when the site is published live with me not logged in, my Header is not visible.  In preview mode, however, the image shows up partially (looks like the central part of the image vertically).  My website, a staging site, is jfspencer.staging.wpengine.com.  I have disabled all plugins except DMS and Pagelines (5 total - DMS Developer and Professional Tools, Pagelines Googlefonts, Sections and Updater.) I have cleared the cache and restarted the browser.  I am providing login information via a separate email with this topic title in the subject area.  Screenshots are attached.

Hello @john7626 


If you add some content to the canvas area with the blue background in your header this will show up. Currently this is only visible in preview as there is no content within the Canvas area. 


Add any content to the Canvas area - for example (and if you do not want anything to show, you can add a text box with the text   so that the default text does not show. 

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. 


Please do not send me private messages. Occam's razor - The principle states "Keep things simple!"

Thanks, Martin.  That solution made the image visible, but not at the full size of the image, which I need.  I understand that this may require a different kind of tweaking, but how do I make the entire image show up in the header?

If you open the Header Area options via the Tool panel, you find a number of options available, you will see a option called Area Minimum Height (px), enter the value of your images height there, only enter the value for example, if you have an image that is 400pixels in height, enter only the numeric value such as 400, do not include px.






This should increase your header area height. However, because DMS is responsive and for areas such as background image, template area images etc... we use like most responsive frameworks, the CSS property background-size and value cover. What cover does is scales your background image to be as large as possible so that the background area is completely covered by the background image. However, some parts of the background image may not be in view within the background positioning area.


So try my suggestion above and see if this resolves your issue.


Please search our forums, before posting!

Glad you managed to resolve, thank you for updating the thread.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      Hi team,
      checking my site today, i'm surprised to see my MegaNav all in bottom of the pages, while it's in header.
      After getting to change it in couple of pages onto Template part (too time consuming !), i'm desperate and ask you for help :-)
      Thank you in advance !

      I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…

      hi all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      site with calendar :
      7 side with one event from the calendar :
      when I have my site on DMS2 it was working :-(
