Inserting Images

Recommended Posts


Hi Team,


I am struggling with some of the simplest acts in DMS2. For example in the footer region I want to put in three linked images in a row. 


Firstly I drag in a three column insert and then when I try to put a text box into any of the columns it throws me all over the page right away from the column I trying to work in.


So what would be the best method of achieving the above outcome? Also are text boxes the best way of simply inserting a linked image in a section other than the content loop?


I thankyou in advance for your patience and your refrainment from thinking me too much an idiot.

The getting thrown all over the page can sometimes happen.  Text boxes or Media boxes are both good for adding linked images, there are advantages to both.  I recommend testing it out and see what works best for you.

There should be no issue in dragging and dropping a section into a Column, the only thing I can think of is your mouse sensitivity could be high which is probably throwing off DMS drag and drop functionality slightly.


Also, if you want to add images to your site, I would recommend you use the MediaBox, as it is mean't to be used for Media such as images, videos etc.. The TextBox section as the name suggests is for text and text alone.


If you're still struggling to position a section into a column for whatever reason, then simply just reduce the sections width to 4/12, which equates to three columns, 4 + 4 + 4 = 12.

Although you probably havent added any custom css, this can cause an issue with padding and margins pushing elements around as here http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/35448-12-column-boot-strap-is-off-somehow/#entry210187. Otherwise, Danny's advice should resolve your problem

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 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

      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?

      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!
