Custom CSS/LESS & Custom Scripts

Recommended Posts


I'd like to know where DMS writes custom CSS/LESS & Custom Scripts.  


The reason I ask, yesterday I inadvertently pasted the wrong script into the custom script area I got a white screen. Neither the wordpress side or the pagelines side were available.  


I've since resolved the issue by restoring the site with its last backup. I'd like to know so next time I could FTP in and delete the bad code.

Hi stephen2

Please, you can take a look to this


Go to "Customization"

In my opinion the best way to do this is using a Child Theme.

If you write a bad code in function.php (Child Theme), you will need to delete the code via FTP, but you will not need to restore a backup.


Life is too short to remove USB safely ...

Yes, using a child theme. Not sure if you understood my question. I need to know where information entered in the custom section (LESS/CSS and Script) is written -- What file in the child theme folder or the dms folder is this written to?

There is no path, all settings are stored in the database.

      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!
