Template Corruptios

Recommended Posts

Hi 

 

This is something that I've brought up before, but still persists and needs fixing.

 

There is an apparent bug in the Pagelines tempting system whereby if you take an original template and then save it as something else it still keeps an unruly content/class link to the original template. I have found that any section that has a class that was in the original template carries across a change from the old template from the updated new one. This means that you can be happily editing your new template without realising that it is causing havoc on the other template. This extends to removing drag and drop items in the new template - they will disappear in the original template. 

 

Getting rather fed up with having to recreate templates with original content and classes.

Sorry the title should read 'Template Corruptions' - couldn't find how to update the title?

Hi,

 

What do you mean by "it still keeps an unruly content/class link to the original template" ?

 

Are you referring to the section ID ?

Create a template then use that template as a new template. Make a change to the new template that has a class the same as the original one. Make a change and you'll see that it affects the original template too. This is a bug and happens to me regularly.

I am not sure what you mean when you say this "Make a change to the new template that has a class the same as the original one." ?

Just create a template (add classes to canvas, text area etc) and then use that original template to create a new one. Now simply add content to the new template in a section with a class. Now edit / delete etc that/those sections. Go back to the original template and more often than not it is corrupted on the changes you just made on the new template.

OK, just so I understand you correctly. I need to create a template with the Canvas section which as a some custom classes via the style classes field option. Then add a section to the Canvas area such as the Masthead, which also has some classes via the custom classes field.

 

I now then need to make a new template based on this template, then delete or edit the Masthead section and add something else such as a Hero section. Upon save this will corrupt the previous template ?

yes that's what I've found on numerous occasions. Usually all it takes is an empty canvas with a class on the original template carried across to the new one.

Have you unlinked the templates before making your changes ?

 

Also, can you record a video of your issue please, as I am not entirely sure what the issue. You can use QuickCast or Jing.

        First of all, sorry for my bad English.  I am developing an ecommeece with wp, woocommerce, PL5 and quickshop, and I need to do some changes in the simple product grid. I want to change the classes of some divs, but I can't find the templates. 
      Also, I change the grid of the category products pages, but I didn't make it correctly.
      This is the cat archive's: http://globosdemar.com/wp/categoria-producto/camisetas-para-ninos-y-ninas/
      Can you help me?

      I have to say that I like the Layout and the Template based sections. Some of them are really impressive.
      One of the things that I would like to request though is the possibility of being able to dynamically rearrange the layout.
      An example of what I am talking about is take the Agency Section. It's current layout starts with the
      Splash Module then the Portfolio Module then the Service Module and so on and so forth.
      What would be great is if we were able to move these modules around. I.e have the Service Module first
      then maybe the Splash, and then the portfolio.

      I am using Jigoshop on a website that also uses PL5 and am running into an issue where the store pages do not allow me to use the PL5 editor. Is anyone else having this problem or know if a solution? 
      When I open the Chrome console I see the following error:
      site.js?ver=b199df:5 Uncaught ReferenceError: PLData is not defined
          at Object.setMasterModel (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at Object.init (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at HTMLDocument.<anonymous> (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at i (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Object.fireWith [as resolveWith] (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Function.ready (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at HTMLDocument.K (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
       
      The problem can be seen here: http://fingerlakesdistilling.com/shop/ where the sidebar, footer, and header do not show up. Any thoughts?
      Thanks so much!

      I've created a new post category "Success stories" with Custom Post type UI. (in order to have a different layout for a different post category - blog post one layout, success stories another layout).
      New category "success stories" are "detached" from all the other posts, so they have a different layout, but the problem is that all of the success stories are also having the same exact content.
      So whenever I edit content (e.g. change body text) on one of success story posts, it also changes the content (body text) for all other Success story category posts. 
       
      Question: Is there a way to retain this separate category with it's own layout, and have a different content for each individual post? I'm using Pagelins templates. 
       Thanks in advance.
