SSL Support (for WP Engine Hosted Installations)
Trying PL5 on a new WP Engine hosted installation (using a child theme for PL framework) with SSL cert and style is "gone."
PL5 Site on WP Engine
I just tested an "installation copy" on WP Engine and am relieved/pleased to report that everything copied over perfectly.
WPEngine deletes large pagelines options from database
I'm Using DMS 2 on WPEngine and after asking myself where my site was gone this morning - all page settings were lost - I just got this message from my host service WPEngine:
417539 pl-settings 184137 pl-user-templates
I wouldn't expect that WPEngine changes their behavior so what could I do to prevent database entries in wp_options to grow that large? What exactly is stored there that can be larger than 1 MB and how can I reduce the size?
CSS Compile Time and Varnish Cache on WP Engine
We are using pagelines in an WPEngine environment that is cached by a varnish.
Whenever an editor makes a change eg on the home page the less will be re-compiled, which takes up to a few seconds.
What we witness then nearly every time is that the page references css that point to a 404, which makes the entire page unusable of course.
This lasts until the cache-age expires which is in our case 10 looong minutes
If we re-publish the page the problem is gone (most times or it re-happens).
Just trying to understand, maybe this is what happens:
I didn't find a pattern of how compiles-css files are stored or deleted. e.g. yesterday we published a couple of changes and there is no css file in the uploads directory from yesterday but many from last month etc.
I think the process might be like so:
1. I publish a page
2. the old css is deleted
3. in the meantime the page is broken and will be cached with 404 css references
4. then new css is re-compiled and saved to the uploads dir
5. the reference to the new css is saved to the database
6. after 10 minutes (cache-age expired) the new css is available
If this is the case pagelines doesn't support varnish - am I right?
Pls. let us know how to proceed. We have a large print campaing leading traffic to our site and it's broken as soon as we edit a thing.
Thanks in advance
Pagely cache issues with DMS
I'm hosting a website on Pagely for a client but I'm facing a really weird issue.
Apparently without any reason the site goes blank... it loads only a white page.
Taking a look to the source I found that the page is loading correctly the layout code (divs and spans of dms layout are there) but they are empty... no content is loaded.
Here is the answer I get from Pagely support
My client is getting quite upset with this issue ... and I like to solve this... I'd prefer not to change DMS nor hosting.
So can you please help?
