A Fallback for Browsers not Running Javascript

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


Quick question.  I had a customer call me saying my site was 'broken' and they couldn't place an order.  After much trouble shooting it turned out they had JavaScript disabled.  Out of curiosity I turned off JS in my browser to see what happened to the site, in essence nothing loads.


I was surprised that there was no fallback image for the slider and that it leaves a big white space where the images would be.  Is there a way to stop this happening and create a fallback for those with browsers whose JS is switched off?

HI Stuart,


There really isn't any fallback we can provide JavaScript is a client side scripting language and therefore if any user has JS disabled (not sure why they would do that), then the DMS editor will not function, as the DMS editor is powered by JavaScript.

Please search our forums, before posting!

      I am trying to clone a container on a page. It throws the following javascript error:
      function l(b, c, e, f) { var g = m.a.f.get(b, p); if (!c) { if (g) throw Error("You cannot apply bindings multiple times to the same element."); m.a.f.set(b, p, !0) } I would appreciate guidance and a fix. Thank you

      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

      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:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      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?
