Blog page and post Issues DMS2

Recommended Posts

I have moved from DMS1 to DMS2 and have 2 issues relating to the Blog & Post page:

 

1. Using Flipper the posts do no load correctly (see image below). Only when I scroll down do they 'drop' into place?

 

Site: https://www.hibbslupustrust.org/news/

 

Post: https://www.hibbslupustrust.org/group-hypnosis-june-2014/

2. The second issue is when viewing the actual post on a mobile device. The post author thumb does not move to above the post leaving a white space down the left. This works on other sites and I cannot see why it isn't working on my site?

HI,

 

1. Disable all active plugins and see if this resolves your issue. As I am not able to recreate it on my test site.

 

2. Remove all custom CSS and see if this resolves your issue. As I have just viewed a blog post on my test site and the Post author info positions itself above.

Hi Danny,

 

I deactivated all plugins and although the post page seemed to load ok I still had the issue with the post author not moving position on the smaller screen.

 

Any ideas?

What version of DMS are you on... doesnt appear to be 2.1.


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!

I'm on 2.0.....which leads to my other topic that I still can't see the update for 2.1

 

My other site is also on 2.0 but that works correctly!

If the Post author info element isn't being positioned above the post content when you're viewing on a mobile device, the only thing I can think of that would cause this is custom CSS.

 

Can you try removing all custom CSS and see if this resolves the issue.

 

Regarding the update problem, make sure you have entered your license correctly and that you have the latest version of the PageLines updater plugin, which you can download from your PageLines account.

Hi Danny,

 

I've tried removing the css but still no change.

 

I've reset and re entered my license key but still no update showing for 2.1.

You have section cache active, try disabling that option from DMS Pro Tools.

Hi Danny, Disabled that option but still the same. What is the best way to manually update to 2.1?

 

Rename the current dms2 folder to dms2_old and ftp in the dms2.1 folder?

Do you have the PageLines updater plugin active ?

 

Have you go to Appearance > Themes and then clicked on the Details button that appears on DMS, there should be a notification for an update. If that isn't the case, then try going to WordPress Admin Dashboard > Updates and see if this triggers the update.

 

If that doesn't work, then remove the PageLines updater plugin and download a fresh copy from your PageLines account and then do the same as mentioned above and see if this triggers an update.

 

Let me know if this works.

Have you tried doing the same process without any plugins active except for the PageLines updater ?

hmm

 

OK, try this. Go to WordPress Admin Dashboard > Appearance > Themes and disable DMS and enable Twenty Fourteen and go to Dashboard > Updates and see if any notification appears. If not go back to Appearance > Themes and click on the details link on the DMS thumb and see if a notification appears.

 

Please do a backup before doing this as a precaution.

Hi there 

 

Checking your debug information - https://www.hibbslupustrust.org/?pldebug=1

 

Your DMS install is at /htdocs/wp-content/themes/dms2/dms

 

But should be /wp-content/themes/dms/dms 

 

As you have DMS 1.1.8 also in your themes i am assuming you upgraded from DMS1 to DMS2? If so, did you follow the procedure outlined here? http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/33474-dms-20-how-to-upgrade-from-dms-11x/


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works. 

 

Please do not send me private messages. Occam's razor - The principle states "Keep things simple!"

Thanks Martin,

 

I must have done it incorrectly, sorry. What is the best way to now get 2.0 located to /wp-content/themes/dms/dms ?

Before a backup and then via FTP, rename the folder from dms2 to dms

 

Then see if this resolves the issue, as this should resolve the updating notification and may well resolve your CSS styling problem with the Post Loop.

OK, should be back up and running now, you didn't go to wp-admin and enable DMS, the one that was active is broken. My bad, I thought you would be aware of that. However, there is still no notification for 2.1 update. The only thing I think of is that this is somehow related to your SSL. I will speak to one of our developers and see if this is possible. In the meantime you could try disabling it for the moment, and check going to Appearance > Themes and see if you get a update notification.

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I am having issues with being able to post to my blog with platform 5. Currently when i click publish, it just shows the homepage of MoonBodySoul.com. That is until i open the page editor and change the scope from "All of type: Posts" to "Current Page Only". Then I have to re-insert the menu header as well. This seems like a really dumb process. In past versions of pagelines, I could just post a blog and the menu would be there and there would be no formatting issues. What can I do to fix this?

      How do you move the thumbnail on a blog post?  I need the thumbnails for the blogroll page, but they show up at the top of the actual post page.  Normally, this would be fine, but I've been requested to put it under the blog title.  Any suggestions?
      Thanks.

      My client is asking for a new blog layout similar to the one found here:  http://blog.perkinswill.com/pokemon-augmented-reality-and-the-future-of-urban-design/ 
      They have a splashy full-width background image overlaid with part of the blog and one sidebar.  The navigation arrows send you to the next post.
      Does anyone know if this is even possible using Framework 5?  If so, can you send me some advice on how to get here?
      Totally stuck!
      Thanks.

      Hi there!
      I am using "Pins" for my blog now and I have some problems with the big style of the pins.
      I'd like to have smaller pins, how is it possible to make them smaller?
