Going Nuts...Sections won't save

Recommended Posts

sheilahoff

I’m am having a heck of a time and I’m not sure if I don’t know what I’m doing (very possible) or if there’s something going on with my PL install or what. The site I’ve been working on has no sidebars. But for the blog I need to add a sidebar with a primary sidebar and a Rapid Tab and then under the loop I need an Authors Box, Comment Box and Post Nav. Seems simple. But I can’t seem to make things save no matter what I do. I've even disabled all plug-ins to no avail. You can see in this video.

 

I've turned off all the plugins did not help. Here’s a quick video of my attempts and failures. I’m going to open a thread on the forum too. Let me know if you see that I’m doing something wrong/stupid. Thanks.

Blog is at http://perfect-image.flywheelsites.com/blog/and issue is on single posts.

 

Please let me know if you see that I'm doing something wrong in the video or have ideas of what's going on.

 

Thanks,

Sheila

Hi,

 

You're going to need to disable all active plugins and see if this resolves your issue. If that doesn't work, keep all plugins disabled and then send me a PM with the following info:

 

1. A link to the topic, so I know what the PM is regarding

2. A link to the site in question

3. Your admin username/password

4. Make sure all plugins are disabled.

5. Remove all custom code.

I already disabled all the plug-in before. But I don't want to disable all the plug-ins until I know you'll be working on it. Otherwise I can't get anything else done. Is it possible for YOU to disable the plug-in when you go in? Otherwise maybe I'll clone the site. Can you give me any idea when you'd be able to work on this? Thanks.

I can't give you an exact time, as I am on GMT time zone. However, I can disable the plugins when I get the inform I asked for above via PM. However, you will need to remove your custom code such as CSS/hooks/scripts etc... I will not do that.

 

Also, you shouldn't be working on your site whilst I am trying to debug your issue.

Thanks Danny. So for the moment, I'm going to let this sit. Your comment about custom code and hooks had me recognize that the custom work I had a dev do to modify the WooCommerce reviews might be the cause. Indeed when I renamed the functions.php in the child theme and restored the default functions file the comments returned w/o doing anything else. I was able to add the post nav and save also. So I've contacted the dev to see if she can fix this. Hopefully I won't need to ask you to log in at all. For now this is closed. Hopefully permanently. thanks.

 

But I DO have a question about how to avoid this. I told her it was OK to add her custom functions to the iBlogPro functions.php file because it's a child theme and wouldn't be updated the way DMS will be. Is that not correct? How should she have done her work so as not to interfere with the saving of the sections as this did? Thanks.

iBlogPro isn't a child theme, it is a Core theme, built on DMS, that is why it has the structure it has i.e. a dms directory inside the theme. Therefore, what you have done is edit a core file which isn't recommended nor supported.

 

If you're using iBlogPro you will need to use a child theme if you want to add code to the functions.php file. You can download a iBlogPro 6 skeleton child theme version by clicking on the Branches drop down menu here - https://github.com/Dannyholt/skeleton

AH! That would explain it. My misunderstanding. Will do. Glad I asked. Thank you.

This Core Theme concept is new to me. So it stands alone and I do not need to have DMS installed with it? That was why I thought it was a child theme I think.

 

In order to minimize the extra work when I install your Skeleton iBlog Basic child theme, do I need to export my templates first? I assume I just copy over all my custom CSS and move over the custom changes in the functions.php file to the child theme. What else should I do to make it go smoothly?

You shouldn't need to export anything, as what you're installing is a child theme specific for that theme. Therefore, no export/import should be required.

 

If you do plan on using custom functions via the functions.php file, then you will need to use a child and therefore, I would recommend removing your custom CSS and copying/pasting it into the child themes style.css and/or style.less if you're using both CSS and LESS CSS.

      I am trying to get iBlogpro6 running under https. All is fine but I am getting a mixed content warning:
      Mixed Content: The page at 'https://s11r.co/' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure stylesheet 'http://s11r.co/content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1464872768.css'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS. The compiled css file are delivered in http not https. I tried toi delete them several times but the error is still there.
      Do I need to fix something in the theme folder? What? Where?

      Hi
      I'm in trouble with a site using iBlogPro 6 with the DMS editor. Developers told me to ask support in forums. Here we go…
      I try to make a page with tabs containing a kind of dictionary with some terminology. I am saving and refreshing all the time but the problem is, in some point, the changes aren't saved and I get the three default tabs again as nothing happened. I did it once and again. Then I saw the problem was when I write more than 50.000 characters (or 60.000 counting white spaces).
      What can I do? How do I have to configure server settings? Or is this a theme problem?
      Please I would appreciate any comment about it.
      Thank you very much

      I'm interested to upgrade my site to iBlogPro6
      Will I be able to keep my Pagelines Framework website live and uninterrupted while building my new iBlogPro6 site?
      Is there a online help guide of specifics instructions how to get this process started once I download iBlogPro6?
