Blog Posts No Longer Working
By Rob Thomas+
For some reason the main site of my multisite has lost the functionality of its blog page.
If you click on a non-link post (i.e. not the links Pageline allows you to set up in the "Format" menu when you edit the post, or video, etc, but set as a "Standard" post), you get no content and a page that only shows a comments field (e.g. "Leave a reply"). If you go into "edit" the post, the content shows up. But not under "view post."
I have toggled to all non-Pagelines themes and it works fine in twenty eleven, thirteen and fourteen. It does not work in any Pagelines theme (e.g. postpins, DMS, iBlogPro, etc.). This appears to be confined to this blog. None of the other blogs on the multisite are affected. I have tested with all of the plugins turned off. No effect.
Debug only returns the following message:
Notice: wpdb::escape is deprecated since version 3.6! Use wpdb::prepare() or esc_sql() instead. in /www/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3411
Interestingly enough, I played around with the Permalinks. If you set them to default something interesting happens: the "Blog" item in the menu will no longer go to the "Blog" page. It will go to the "Home" page, even though the posts page is set to the "Blog" page and the Front Page is set to "Home" in Reading. Also, this one part that becomes broken when you switch back to default Permalinks works fine when you are in the visual editor but not when you log out (then you get the Blog link going to the Home page).
For posts with actual content, you can test those titled "Smut Capital of America" or "Some Problems with Linda Williams' "Hard-Core Eroticism" which are posts 7 and 8 down, respectively, since the others are just video or linked content. Yes, this is my porn studies class. So, for example: http://imagesoferoticism.com/smut-capital-of-america/
I test my sites at the beginning of the semester and this definitely wasn't a problem before. However, that could mean this happened anytime between the end of August and now. It's too bad I didn't notice earlier. Normally, if something doesn't work, students won't say anything. So, I have to be on top of things or they use it as an excuse not to do work. It's important that I get this working as soon as possible.
I tired enabling Legacy Mode on the blog. This allowed the content posts to show up as showing full content on the Blog page, but then the newer posts that use the "link" and "video" functions from PL do not work. I also tried using PostLoop or PostPins, same result. I may have to put the content in myself and use the Legacy settings as a way to at least get things up quickly. Not sure what else to do.
This is a Multisite hosted on Flywheel. Also, I tried deleting the cache. No change.
Blog sidebar and previous entries
Hello, Some differences between WHv3 and v6 is I can't figure out how to activate the sidebar widgets area. Also, I don't see previous entries at the bottom of my posts page that allows users to continue looking through posts. Can you help me with these?
register_sidebar warning messages when upgrade to WP 4.3
Have an old frameworks site client is not ready to update to DMS: http://deckmasterfinedecks.com. Have the most recent version of Frameworks installed.
Just updated plugins all was fine. Updated Wordpress core from 4.1.7 to 4.3 and got a bunch of notice errors messages - specifically 10 notices that the sidebars were not being registered properly in functions.php as they require an ID, so default IDs were being used. Here are the warnings:
Notice: register_sidebar was called incorrectly. No id was set in the arguments array for the "Primary Sidebar" sidebar. Defaulting to "sidebar-1". Manually set the id to "sidebar-1" to silence this notice and keep existing sidebar content. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information. (This message was added in version 4.2.0.) in /home/leavens/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3622
(also for Secondary, Tertiary, Universal, Full Width, Content, Footer Columns, MoreFoot Left/Middle/Right)
After some investigation, I found had define('WP_DEBUG', true); in wp-config.php so set that to false to get rid of the messages, but is this a bug that should be addressed? Have not checked each and every page of side to make sure all is functioning, but thought his was a serious enough issue to bring it to the communitiy's attention.
Custom design for different category pages
I am using DMS 2 theme and I want to create a 2 different links on my website; each link should take you to a different blog post category. Although the process is easy, yet I can not figure out how to give each category page a unique design of its own; Any change I make on any page is applied to the other (I'm aware of the universal elements like the header and footer and I a am not talking about these.)
Since I am new to wordpress in general, I am not sure if my description is sufficient; apologies if it is not.
The Blog page / wp-loop
