PageLines 2.4.5 to DMS 2.0

Recommended Posts

m.beerens

Dear,

 

My current website www.xilloc.com is build by me in PageLines 2.4.5. latest version of wordpress (old account provided by my old hoster, still logged in)

 

I just became a club member and I understand that I have to rebuild the front-end of the page in the DMS 2.0 theme. I run into the following problem.

 

I currently try to rebuild the website as it was in the pagelines 2.4.5 theme. When I active the DMS 2.0 theme, and rebuild the new frontpage, but then activate the old PageLines theme, to see how it was and what else to change, and switch back into activating the DMS 2.0 theme it has not saved ant of the new rebuild frontpage. It then acts as if I'm using the DMS2.0 theme for the first time.

 

Do I have to save it somewhere? Or how does it works?

 

Looking forward to your help ans suggestions.

 

Kind regards,

 

Maikel Beerens

Hello @m.beerens

 

Good to see you've joined the club :) 

 

Rather than install DMS on the same server as your old site, install DMS in a subdirectory or test environment and then rebuild your site on the DMS install. That way you have a clean install to work from and can easily switch between your old and new site. 

 


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.

Dear Martin,

 

Thanks for you response, Ill see if i can create a extra install of word press in a sub-directory. But still I wonder if I future wise i would ever activate a different theme, is then all in the DMS 2.0 theme lost?

 

Looking forward to you answer,

 

Kind regards,

No not at all. but work this way and that won't happen for now. There are steps to take to make sure this doesn't happen. 

 

Start by adding your customisations (cusotm code/JS etc) to a child theme rather than to the Base DMS. 

 

Use Danny's Skeleton Child theme which includes installation and usage instructions https://github.com/Dannyholt/skeleton

 

Steps to installing the child theme and working with them can be found here http://docs.pagelines.com/customize/how-to-customize

Hi Martin,

 

Thanks for you explanation. I installed the theme on a test environment. I'm still pretty new to this all, but had the change to play around with it. I also installed the danny's skeleton theme.

 

I currently have two themes installed. one is the DMS2 and the other one is the skelleton recommended by you. When I activate this one of danny it works but gives the message below on the themes dashboard 

 

Do I still need to install these themes? and if yes, where can i find them for download?

 

Looking forward to your answer,

 

Kind regards,

 

Maikle

That issue isn't related to DMS, but Platform Pro. Basically you have the PlatformBase child theme installed but have uninstalled the parent theme Platform Pro. So you will also want to uninstall the Platform Base theme too, as it is no longer needed seeing as you have removed the Platform Pro theme.

      Hi 
      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

      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      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!
