Hi,

 

How did you move your site to the new server ?

 

Also, please update to the latest version of DMS, you're using an out of date version.

 

 


Please search our forums, before posting!

it says my version is up to date v2.1

 

i used a Word-press plugin, duplicator, which only partly worked because it didn't copy any page content.

 

then i used the import-export feature to make a .json file and import to the new site and the content appeared.

HI mitchellstringer

If you need to migrate your WP, you can take a look to this

http://docs.pagelines.com/getting-started/create-demo

 

First you can export your WP with the WordPress Importer

Then you can export the .json file  

 

Then you can do the 

Step 1: Import the WordPress Data

Step 2: Set Reading Options

Step 3: Importing the DMS Data

 

You need to copy all your CSS at a file text and then copy this.

 

If you need add some CSS code you can use a Child Theme

I use for this a Danny´s Child Theme, this works fine to me in all update.

https://github.com/Dannyholt/skeleton

 

You can install the .zip like a theme in your dashboard > themes > upload

You need activate the Theme and the copy/paste yours CSS rules in the style.css

I use the Child because I read this after update the theme

Please Note: Any customizations you have made to theme files will be lost. Please consider using child themes for modifications.

      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

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      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!
