RTL Editor trouble in DMS 2.1.9.1.

Recommended Posts

Dear Pageliners,

 

there seems to be something wrong with the Editor on RTL pages again. I have had two issues, presumably since the last upgrade (I can't say precisely when they started but it was recent): On the RTL pages, the entire page is shifted to the right. This may be because the Section bar (Delete-Clone-Save-Move-Edit) does not retract any more put is always displayed fully, to the left of the content. Or rather, when the page opens it starts out retracted, but once I scroll the shift to the right occurs. When I move the page back to the centre in order to read whats on the right it jumps back automatically: http://animatinglibraries.com/?page_id=7855&lang=ar

On one page I have a more serious issue: The page appears when I select it from the language selector. But when I reach the very bottom everything disappears and there are just five red numbers, 1 to 5, apparently links but they don't link to anywhere: http://animatinglibraries.com/?lang=ar

Please be so kind as to look at this. The site in question is www.animatinglibraries.com but the Editor-jump-to-the-right issue at least occurs on all my pages. I have tried disabling the plugins, it does not change things. Still of course I presume that the problem may be in something I am doing wrong. But since I cannot find what it might be and the Editor had a patchy ride with RTL I put this problem before you and your deeper insight! I appreciate your help, as ever. Where shall I send the login details?

 

Yours faithfully, Jan.

P.S.: Another observation: The NavBar section alone is not affected by this issue.

Dear Simon, thanks for the swift reply. I already feel reassured. Excuse my ignorance, but how do I send a private message in the Forum? I'll do so straight away once I find out. Greetings, Jan.

Dear Simon, it still persists. I even deleted Enhanced Options Manager altogether, and logged in and out. Both the disappearing page at http://animatinglibraries.com/ar/and the jump-to-right at http://animatinglibraries.com/ar/activities-2/?pagename=activities-2&edtr=on or http://animatinglibraries.com/ar/activities-2/ persist. On opening the page everything seems fine, but try scrolling up and down once or twice and it goes awry. Do you observe this behaviour too or would it be my browser or computer? Thanks again for looking into this. Greetings, Jan.

dont edit the language pages with the editor, make all your changes in the root domain, NOT /ar/

Dear Simon, I don't understand. How can I edit the language pages in a way other than the editor? And what might be wrong? Until a short while ago this was no problem. Something must have happened in an update, or so it would seem to me. But if for now there is a way I could edit the /ar/ pages please let me know! Thank you, yours faithfully, Jan.

OK if you want to call 'bug' then please deactivate ALL plugins except the language one and see if the issue persists, if it does i'll be happy to log in again and check it out.

Dear Simon, I did do this before I contacted you. Deactivating everything bar WPML does indeed solve one of the problems, the disappearing content. But the non-retracting section bar as well as the jump to the right caused by it persist. I will leave all plugins disabled for now so you can have a look. Maybe it really is a bug. RTL has confused the Editor in the past and it has been an effort to convince people - but once it was clear the problems were quickly solved. I hope this will be the case now as well. I must bow out for the night, where I am it is very late. Thank you for your continued efforts in this, and your general advice and assistance! Yours faithfully, Jan.

P.S.: As an indication that the cause might be in the Editor: Even the error message is confused. It says:

 

.Oops, There may be an issue loading

.DMS typically loads in less than 5 seconds. Please check for Javascript errors

(.Typically, slow or incomplete loading is related to plugin conflicts or server issues)

 

The punctuation is taken from an RTL style. In the early days of DMS this phenomenon stretched right into the pop-up editor, where it has since been cleared (I communicated with yourself on this, via GitHub, but this correspondence disappeared along with the open source era...). Maybe this can help in sorting out the current bug, if indeed it is one. I would be very happy as I need to work with these pages.

      Hi 
      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

      Hello,
      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:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      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!
