Reuploading DMS... Does it delete all content?

Recommended Posts


I'm having an issue with the Theme after the last update. I was thinking of re-uploading the latest version of the theme, however, if I do that, will it replace my entire site with a new version or would all of my pages and content remain intact?

All settings are stored in the database, reuploading dms wouldn't change any settings.


The latest update, assuming you went from 2.1.8 to 2.1.9, also assuming you are using dms2.. had zero css add/removed. It was quite a small update that only added a couple of shortcodes and provision for WP 4.1 that isnt released yet.


What issue are you experiencing?

Hi Simon_P


I'm not sure what went wrong. I did the auto-install and maybe I clicked away too fast or something but now my DMS Editor isn't working so I can't edit any of my pages. I attached two screenshots so you can see what my site looks like when I'm logged into it as admin. And I also attached a javascript error I got. 


It's almost like the DMS Editor didn't install completely. 


Everything else works fine though. If you're not an admin, the site looks as it should. As the admin, the backend of Wordpress looks fine and works fine. It just seems to be the DMS Editor that's non-functional.Screen-Shot-2014-11-20-at-5.47.31-PM.png

Try publishing your changes and also flushing your cache (DMS Editor > Site Settings > Reset > Flush Cache button.

      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!
