hello there,

 

I had the following questions. 

 

 

I've just downloaded the PinsPro theme. I like it a lot but some questions since I am not an expert.

 

  1. This is a "core theme", new concept for me. Does this theme need a child theme?
  2. If this is not a child theme, what happen with updates? will updates affect customization? 
  3. Is it necessary to have DMS-2 theme install for Pinspro to work?

I sent these questions before to the author of the theme but no answer.

 

thanks, 

Luis

HI Luis

1. No, you don´t need a child theme.

2. I suppose that the update are on line when this is necessary

3. You don´t need DMS 2 for the theme.

 

but.....I did this, I copied in my child theme in the directory "sections" the new sections in PinsPro by FTP 

The sections are

a. navboard

b. navi

c. pinblog

d. pindivider

e. pinfooter

f. postpin

Then you can use this sections in your theme as you like

 

;)

Hi batman...always helping!

 

thanks for your answer.

 

However, I am curious about your child themes. where did you get it?

 

I saw so many changes on the child theme that now is confusing. I don't have a child themes alone. I was using Flatten. It worked well but unfortunately the flatten menu was not working on safari, the Rev-slide was not working on my iPhone and customer service was very poor. Both were important.

 

With Pinspro all that is working but I am afraid that that something will show up at any time.

 

i have noticed that on the pagelines website it indicate that the version of Pinspro is 1.1, but when you install that themes is shows in wordpress that is version 0.5 by Annonimus. Do you know if there are different versions?

 

 

Thanks a lot,

 

Luis

Hola Luis

 

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

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.

You can see the image

You take a look to this too

http://docs.pageline...ase-child-theme

 

I will see for the PinsPro Version and I will said you about this

Thanks again Batman,

 

I understand now what you did, I mean, moving the sections to the child themes. i got the child them now.

 

However, how is it different from CORE THEME, the author mention in http://www.pagelines.com/pinspro-pinterest-premium-wordpress-theme/

 

it seems that it is not necessary a child theme because is a Core Theme, but then what happens with updates?

 

Thanks a lot,

 

Luis

      Hi Guys, 
      I am still using DMS. I am trying to use Pins Pro. I have tried installing it on my clients site as well as the demo site we have and I get an error each time. 
      It says:
      Unpacking the package…
      Installing the plugin…
      The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found.
      Plugin install failed.
      I also tried uploading through FTP. 
      All the files are upload and now it say this under "DropIns"
      db-error.php Custom database error message.
      I did re-download from my dashboard to make sure it was the latest version. I also tried unzipping, and then zipping up the sub folder inside. None of this has worked. Any ideas?

      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.
