DMS2.1.5 update to 2.1.6 concern

Recommended Posts


Am I going to lose any portion of my DMS2 website if I update from .5 to .6? There's a note that reads under Themes:


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


I've never seen any directions about using child themes. Please explain what this Note means.

Hi redstate

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



First take a look to this



The Danny´s Skeleton is a simple child theme and you have all documentation in 


Life is too short to remove USB safely ...

Thanks but do I have to use a Child theme? I already have a brand new DMS2 website ready to launch and certainly don't want to lose anything when I update it. If I have to, how do I easily move my website to a child theme?

No you don't have to
That warning is part of wordpress not dms
The same warning you get when you update any theme

      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

      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:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      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!
