This page: This is the link that is being produces from that html, which obviously results in a 404:"" Help? Thank you! Happy Friday! Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,


First, you're using an out of date version of DMS 1, the latest version is 1.1.8, you're using DMS 1.1.1. I would recommend updating or upgrading to DMS 2.x.


Also, upon inspection of the site you linked, it would appear that the HTML isn't valid. As you can see from the URL created via the code:


This is the HTML being used - <a href="””" target="_blank">Seattle Sings</a>


There are two double quotation marks, the likely cause of this is probably the fact that you're copying and pasting the code from a text editor which isn't formatting it correctly. You will probably want to use a code editor, if you're copying and pasting the code into the TextBox or just write it manually instead of copy/paste.

My record remains solid. I only ever ask for help when it is something relatively simple that I should've caught myself :( We have a complicated install with a few hundred sites, so DMS 2 is coming soon....


Thanks, Danny.

    • Saving templates
      By Jackey+
      All of a sudden my install fails to save a page as a template. It throws this error:
      Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'post' of null
      Any idea what is wrong here?
    • DMS2 an "App Aware" theme?
      By vanessabt+
      Hi,  I am looking at bringing on a new client that we are doing a website redesign for.  Ideally I would like to use pagelines for this but we are also going to be potentially using phonegap to build a corresponding mobile app for the client and connecting it through the AppPresser core plugin to wordpress.  One of the conditions in order to do this is that the chosen theme that is installed in wordpress and that the website uses is an "app aware" theme.  Do you know if dms is an "app aware" theme?  I need to confirm this upfront because there will be no time to redevelop the site if it does not work.  We have a tight timeframe to complete the site and then phase 2 will be the app.  Please advise.  Thank you.
    • Visibility on mobile - tags or code?
      By mikeeg8+
      Is there a quick way to show/hide things on mobile and desktops please, i.e. like a shortcode or similar?
      I've used a bit of code, but wondered if that was the mode elegant way - is there something built into a media box, for example that would give me a hide on desktop toggle?
      Thank you

    • Popovers cut off screen edge.
      By respectgb+
      I'm having problems with bootstrap popovers being cut off the edge of the browser. I'm using the latest version of dms (2.2) and this problem occurs on all browsers tested. Please can you let me know how we can fix this?
