Custom Sections get removed when updating

Recommended Posts

This always happens. When I update the DMS theme I lose the custom sections my coders made for me. Also this time I've lost page templates. How can I avoid this please? Very frustrating and costing me money to get them put back in.

 

Cheers

Your coders should be using a child theme instead of puting sections into the dms folder.

Creating a child theme is incredibly easy.

A bit late now though I should imagine. This site was completed a while ago.

I tried updating because there was a constant problem with the fixed header nav. I hoped updating would fix this. Sometimes content gets stuck up behind it, like you can't quite scroll the page down from behind it. any ideas?

Is the site in question public?

Yes its www.anthonygodin.co.uk. Its a bit broken at the moment as I'm trying to get it restored to the last backup after losing those sections. If you click around you'll find some pages getting stuck.

Yea I see what you mean, custom sections in the main theme folder. There is no way you can update and keep these kind of customisations. Did the site designer not warn you after completion? It would be the same with any WP theme, if you edit it then update it you will lose that custom code.

      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!
