Hello,

 

I have just bought DMS2 after using the PL framework on a few sites in the past.

I am excited at the possibilities, but am really stuck on how to do things that are a little bit more involved. I have tried reading through the docs and the tutorials on the pagelines site, but they don't really offer very much.

 

I know once i get into it, things will be easier, but right now i am a little freaked out...

 

Are there any other tutorial resources i can try?

 

My current questions are:

1. How do i create a page with a full image background  with some text / buttons over it, no footer ideally with the navigation over the image at the top?

2. Is there a demo ctontent upload? I read something about one being on docs, but could not find it...

 

If i have something like that it might make things a bit easier.

 

Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you.

Your background image can be added by editing the Canvas area or with CSS

 

Buttons etc....http://docs.pagelines.com/tutorials/shortcodes and added to which ever section you choose, though keep textboxes for text only (ie use mediabox or if you have developer license, PL Next box)

 

 

To hide the footer, you will either need to have no footer on the site,

 

In DMS live editor, editing in the footer section (or any section, including the nav you mention), scroll down and you will see the option to hide that section on particular pages > enter the page ids to this, and there si a helpful tip showing which page you are on

Further more, if you want to hide sections dependant upon device, you can go to  WP admin > Pagelines Pro > Allow hidden sections (and check the box). Now any sections can be displayed or hidden for instance on a mobile etc

 

Sure you have other questions but not going to pre-empt them


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!

Ok, i have another question.

 

I put a large background image into the template, set that area to "height of window".

I then dragged a single column into that area and dragged Ubermenu's megamenu into the column so it appears over the image.

But it is positioned in the center vertically.

It looks like this is a standard position?

 

I then used the inline styling to position it higher in the area over the image e.g. -180px

 

But how do i target that more specifically in the css as opposed to doing it inline?

I would assume using the css would be better than doing it inline?

 

Thanks in advance.

      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!
