Hey DMS fans... Are you also sometimes struggling with trying to move something inside and you just cant ?


Look at video below... am I doing something wrong ?! :)

Yes. Happens all the time. As much as I like DMS, other drag-n-drop editors snap the elements in place much better. Sometimes I get so frustrated I have to take a break, which sucks if you're under deadline.

I've seen this often enough as well.

I also occasionally see the following:

  • Sections won't add at all
  • Section editor won't appear (as if the edit button does not function)
  • Custom CSS/LESS area of the DMS front end editor unusable (result is that I need to add the custom fonts/etc. through the PageLines plugin on the admin end)

Sometimes I can get past all this by restarting Chrome and/or MAMP Pro.

At other times only a full Mac restart does it.


To be clear, these issues seem to randomly happen on 4 local dev sites and one live site. The randomness aspect is what makes it hard to pin down.

No, removing all plugins, custom CSS, clearing all caches, etc. does not always solve it. Nonetheless, I'm not above believing that it's still something which I am causing.


Regardless, I really like DMS (and PageLines Pro and Framework before it).

      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!
