Changing domain directory using wordpress "settings" on the side bar(left) broke the site

Recommended Posts


Hi , 




Website URL: http://seattlesbestwebsites.com/pagelines/
Framework Version: 2.1.8
WordPress Version: 4.0
Plugins in Use: poppy
Server/Host: Hostgator 
Screenshots: 2w4bl39.png


I was trying to change the directory name for my site from http://seattlesbestwebsites.com/pagelines/to http://seattlesbestwebsites.com/home. I went to wordpress left nav > settings > change the site url and directory. When I clicked on save and visit the site. It was stripped of css and js, I didn't even see dms or word press anymore. 


I even implemented 


on functions.php but that didn't work... :/ I need this fixed ASAP. 
Thanks ,

Similar to my issue mate, when I move Wordpress or change site URL from subfolders etc via WP settings exactly like you have, I loose all customisation, js, css, and this time even my custom saved sections!


My current only workaround is to change these options and then drag the whole install out of the folder to the root directory.  I too believe it to be related to the way the DMS deciphers the 'site url' in the scripts and this confuses it.

Many thanks

      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.

      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

      We are building a long-page scrolling site with Pagelines 5. Our menu is made with # links that go to a container's unique ID, e.g. container_ux7al6g
      This works, but it doesn't look great in the menu. Is it possible to assign a 'nice' # link, e.g. /#solutions ? 
      We used to do this in the DMS2 platform through a workaround, but that doesn't seem to be possible now. 
      Any suggestions?

      Hey Everyone,
      Ever since the latest wordpress update, woocommerce will not display the product images. When you click where they should be they pop up in a light box, but otherwise are not visible. The errors appear to be theme related. Is there an update or fix for this?
