Since i recently updated to WordPress 4.9.4 there have been some unusual behaviours with Platform 5 (version 5.1.8).
I am unable to edit the colour pickers for the backgrounds (the boxes do not show up anymore) and when i activate a plugin from the extend menu it does not show up in my page editor tools.
Is this a problem for everyone else?
Thank you in advance for your time.
Can anyone guide me please?
I would like to learn how to achieve custom fields and going to give ACF plugin a try. I have watched all the videos and read the documentation and all is good except I can find the template files for the pages and posts. I believe I should be looking for the file single.php but what about posts? Is the reason I can't find them because I am using a framework? Pagelines Framework? How can I add my custom fields to the templates on Pagelines Framework?
Any guidance would be appreciated please.
I have problems with the scroll, someone who can help me?
I am using PL5 as well as Advanced Custom Fields (AFC) to help add meta data to individual posts on our blog. However, where I am getting stuck is how to display the meta data on the actual public post page (frontend). For example, if we have posts that have a subject matter of plants then there are custom fields that the client fills out such as "Scientific Name", "Region", etc. I have used ACF before to display this meta data onto the loops section as well as in Revolution Slider or Essential Grid. However, I am not sure if there is a way to have this metadata display on the actual post page. Can you point me in the right direction? I am using a child theme so I wasn't sure if that meant I had to edit the functions.php file or if there was some other workaround that you knew of.
Thanks so much!
WordPress 4.7.1 was released on 11th January.
It introduced a new bug that stops certain filetypes from being uploaded.
This bug unfortunately stops users from uploading SVGs with the Platform 5 builder.
In the meantime if you need to upload an SVG or have any other image upload issues then please try this plugin that bypasses the mime checks that were introduced.

EDIT: 4.7.2 has been released without the fix. Fix is now slated for 4.7.3
