DMS editor timeout in Chrome - how reinstall safely?
Was on the phone with client yesterday reviewing the site and the server slowed way down. Did a couple updates that may not have taken. Now cannot get back into the DMS editor for http://cassclayton.com/dev/ I can see the site in chrome and firefox but the background image is no longer there. Can get into dashboard in chrome and firefox. Cannot get into DMS editor in chrome - get "Oops, There may be an issue loading." error no matter how many times I try. My internet connection is not the fastest, but I can access other sites I've built in DMS - just not http://cassclayton.com/dev/
My question is,
1) is there a safe way to reinstall DMS that will not trash the work done on the site?
2) Is there a way to see if something in the database got corrupted and how to fix? Since I can't get into DMS editor, can't get to the Flush Cache page to try that.
Just turned on
alternate social icons, SSL/non-SSL mixed errors w/social and shoppingcart
In post 34871-sharebar-issues Danny suggests one can use any of the icons in font-awsome for social share icons. What's the best way to use other images? Client asked me to implement the icons at http://www.wpbeginner.com/showcase/16-best-free-social-media-icon-sets-for-wordpress/ specifically #20 "20 Social Media Icons". Have downloaded the zip file containing those icons but where/how get them to show up on the site?
So I am referring to both the icons to send visitors to the site owner social properties AND shar icons so people can Like, share ect.
Upon further research, I see a discussion on problems with using social icons on SSL (https://...) sites since a warning message comes up complaining about mixed SSL and non-SSL content on the page? Since this site is a shoppingcart site, using Woocommerce, this could be a problem. What's the current wisdom on dealing with this? Also, I read a while ago there can be a performance hit if one makes their whole site SSL, so since Wordpress and themes adds significant overhead, what's the current wisdom on this issue? SSL for all pages or just for shoppingcart checkout/account info pages?

Social Icons issue after changing to responsive design
I'm using Pagelines for some years now and had to change to responsive webdesign recently (Site Options - Layout Editor - Layout Handling: "responsive with % width" now instead of the former "static with pixel width").
In "Site Options - Header and Footer" - Branding Section: Social Icon Position" I set the distance from bottom to 35 and the distance from right to 1135 as it always has been.
Now the problem is that the social icons move with the width of the browser (IE, Chrome, Opera, Firefox: all the same) and thus out of the window if the frame is too small. Please try out on http://mobiwatch.de
I can't position social icons on the right side of the website because there are two sidebars with ads.
And I can't change back to static pixel width design because of Google: they will ignore websites that do not have responsive web design!
So I really, really hope you can help me fix that!!!
Thanks in advance,
