All of my Designs continually get DELETED

Recommended Posts




My name is Matthew Miller. I purchased PageLines to have freedom in designing my site daiyfashionproject.com.


I absolutely loved it. The design was great and simple and I felt in control.


Then everything was deleted. Everything I had designed went away and the DMS default was the only thing that was saved.


So I built it again. Luckily it was a simple design and it wasn't too much work to put back together, at least to this point. I figured that I did something wrong and that I had to just push through.


Then everything was deleted. Everything I had designed went away and the DMS default was the only thing that was saved.


So I built it again. This time I was frustrated and thought maybe I needed to save the templates. Maybe that was my issue. I continued to save my sections and my page templates. For several days it was fine. I checked back in, made more tweaks, got it the way I wanted.


Then everything was deleted. Everything I had designed went away and the DMS default was the only thing that was saved.


So I switched my site to a free Wordpress template so that when people visited they would actually see my site and not the DMS site.

By now I was a bit angry. Somehow I was kicked out of the DMS page and had to sign back in to post a question on the forum.


In my rage I forgot my password/account username and was locked out of signing in. This admittedly was due to my own problem of not remembering my account information but it wasn't making me feel any better. The only thing I could do was to send a message through the contact form on the PageLines sight to get help.


The response told me that all I could do was go to the forum, even though I mentioned that I was locked out of the forum. So when I needed help all I got was that I needed to talk to someone else who I didn't have permission to talk to.


Now to my point.


You won't find PageLines at dailyfashionproject.com right now because it is going to delete my design again. I really don't want to have to deal with redesigning my site every 1-3 days.


This is an awkward request to put on a forum but no one else seems to be able to help. I would appreciate a refund on the purchase of the PageLines template. It was never used anywhere else and is not active on my Wordpress site now.



This is the non-aggressive non-agry me posting this to the forum because I spent more than a week to calm down before I said anything stupid. It's easy to be angry at people I can't see and I don't want that showing up here.



Can someone help this time?

Were you clicking the 'customize' link in wordpress?

For refund info you need to talk to the billing desk. We never discuss any billing issues on a public forum.

I can't say for sure if I did but it is definitely likely.


Hitting the customize button resets DMS to default?

DMS does not use the wordpress customizer, all that does is lit you edit the site title etc for basic themes, all the DMS controls are on the front end of your site using the DMS editor.

We are releasing a patch to stop people clicking that button.

It doesnt reset anything, it fools DMS into thinking its just been installed because the page that the customizer redirects to does not exist.

      I am using DMS 2 theme and I want to create a 2 different links on my website; each link should take you to a different blog post category. Although the process is easy, yet I can not figure out how to give each category page a unique design of its own; Any change I make on any page is applied to the other (I'm aware of the universal elements like the header and footer and I a am not talking about these.)
      Since I am new to wordpress in general, I am not sure if my description is sufficient; apologies if it is not.

      Dear fellow forum members,
      It has been months, if not years, since I got the latest DMS version. And I haven't been able to get myself to install it on my blog...
      A few months ago I took on a new job and I now know for sure I will never get to it.
      So, my question: is there anyone out there who is experienced with DMS and would be willing to do this for me.
      In all honesty, I will need help with everything, from rethinking the content (structure), to deciding on illustrations and colours. 
      I am though, willing to pay for this.
      Thanks in advance for your kind answers.

      Is there any default customization to iblogpro6 so it´s easy to manage the background for the site? Also to the main background in middle behind content? 
      Lets say that I want to have my site like ipage (dot) com with grey background and white in middle behind content. But I also want to have the *shade* between the white/gray and also at the bottom. How do I add this to my site?
      Kind Regards

      I'm using Pagelines for some years now and had to change to responsive webdesign recently (Site Options - Layout Editor - Layout Handling: "responsive with % width" now instead of the former "static with pixel width").
      In "Site Options - Header and Footer" - Branding Section: Social Icon Position" I set the distance from bottom to 35 and the distance from right to 1135 as it always has been.
      Now the problem is that the social icons move with the width of the browser (IE, Chrome, Opera, Firefox: all the same) and thus out of the window if the frame is too small. Please try out on http://mobiwatch.de
      I can't position social icons on the right side of the website because there are two sidebars with ads.
      And I can't change back to static pixel width design because of Google: they will ignore websites that do not have responsive web design!
      So I really, really hope you can help me fix that!!!
      Thanks in advance,

      Seems like Google custom search bar design getting broken after I putting it on my site. I didn't happen when I was on another theme.
      # Heres the public url to the search bar & how it originally looks like: https://www.google.com/cse/publicurl?cx=012834315757974292317:cg3gsjzb-xi
      # Here's how its design collapses after I put it in DMS media box : http://screencast.com/t/pAKlUcVB2 | Example url: http://www.techgainer.com/?q=chrome
      If you wonder what's the code is, here's the code:
      <script>   (function() {     var cx = '012834315757974292317:cg3gsjzb-xi';     var gcse = document.createElement('script');     gcse.type = 'text/javascript';     gcse.async = true;     gcse.src = (document.location.protocol == 'https:' ? 'https:' : 'http:') +         '//www.google.com/cse/cse.js?cx=' + cx;     var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];     s.parentNode.insertBefore(gcse, s);   })(); </script> <gcse:searchbox></gcse:searchbox> This issue occurred even when I used it on DMS 1
