Migrating from framework, how to keep content from boxes

Recommended Posts

Audun MB

I'm migrating from Framework to DMS now. I have a lot of content made with Framework "Boxes", and wonder what's the best method to keep that content in DMS? 

I tried to search the forums and support sites, but couldn't find the answer. 

I'd also take general tips on migrating, the support sites doesn't say much.

HI,

Unfortunately, the Boxes section isn't supported in DMS Framework. Therefore, there is no way to import your Boxes content to your DMS site. You will need to recreate them using either TextBoxes or MediaBoxes. Please be aware that these sections are not custom post types like the Boxes section.

So I have to manually recreate everything? No smart way to do this then?

Unfortunately, no as the Boxes section in PageLines Framework was a custom post type. There is no similar section in DMS Framework. Therefore, to add these boxes to your site, you will need to manually recreate them using either iBoxes or MediaBox sections.

Hi,

None of those plugins are going to work. As there is no section in DMS Framework or the core themes, that uses a Post type to display content like the Boxes section. Therefore, the only way for you to achieve this is to create the Boxes manually using a section in DMS such as TextBoxes, MediaBoxes or NextBox. You could also use the iBox section, but again, you will need to manually add your content, as none of these sections can be populated via a custom post type.

Alternatively, you could contact our helpdesk who can provide contact information for our trusted developers and agencies who will be able to create you a section that allows you to Boxes in the same way as PageLines Framework. However, they will charge you a fee, as this is custom development. You can contact our helpdesk using the following:

      Hi, even though I just got a SSL certificate, I can't get the green padlock to appear due to the following error:
      :A file with an insecure url of "http://yemoonyah.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-boxes/check.svg" was loaded via the javascript file: https://yemoonyah.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.12.4 on line 3. The insecure URL may not be directly contained in the script file and may exist elsewhere."
      I figured if I delete and re-install the plugin it might fix the problem but will my boxes on the website still be there? Or do I have to redesign everything all over again if I delete the plugin and then re-install it?

      The images are forced into a boxed frame so that you can't see the whole picture. Doesn't look so good. Is this a bug? A feature? How can I fix it?

      The recent WP update seems to be quite cheeky...messing about with a number of things. 
       
      Having trouble with boxes displaying differently in different browsers.  1st screen shot is Chrom...looks ok. 
      2nd screenshot is Firefox...colors are different. Icons are different. Have weird 1000's next to the icons. Any idea what's going on? 
       
      Thanks!!

      Someone reported this little bit of weirdness to me today. They were using Internet Exporer. I used an emulator, and I received the same result. Please see the attached.
      The website is richcruzchicago.com.
      Thanks,

      Everything was fine with my site.
      Suddenly, strange characters are appearing in Boxes. See image. Site page is here. I even tried to add a new Boxes section but the same thing keeps happening, so I deleted the new section.
      How can I resolve this?
      Your help is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you.
