ways to prevent client from breaking the template layout

Recommended Posts

is there a way to lock the header and footer as I am very concerned my client will accidentally move layout elements when they edit the page in front-end in chrome, as they need to edit the boxes on that pages so editing via the dashboard is not an option. It's very easy to easily move a component by mistake.

I asked for a locking function for sections when DMS1.x came out as I could see this happening very easily.

 

A type of locking function was introduced with the templates in v2 but it really needs to be individual sections.

Hi there, I'll send a link of this thread to the core team so they can take a look at your suggestion.

 

Currently you can lock the Pl editor completely from clients if required, that way they can use the theme as they would a normal wp theme, simply create new posts/pages and use the various Wp admin panels. http://docs.pagelines.com/tutorials/lockdown-visual-editor. But there isn't an option to lock down only certain areas or sections within the template etc. Not sure how easy that would be to implement but it could well become a feature or pro feature added in the future.


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 hear the feedback, its a great idea. We'll get some client/dev features in there soon.

yes understand you can lock the complete editor, but that's not my requirement. It's the ability to lock global sections like the header and footer.

That's a real shame it isn't included on DMS 2, but please consider it in the next version.

      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!
