I am wanting to know what the status of the Pagelines Platform.
I have noticed that there has been absolutely no updates on Platform 5 for over 8 months.
Please tell me you haven't gone off on another tangent and going to build the next great solution
and then leave all of us to have to completely rebuild our sites like we did for
Pagelines, then DMS, then Pagelines Platform.
I like what you build, but what you need to do is build one product and then make it better, rather than
abandoning it and building something else.
You haven't done anything for so long that even WordPress is providing a warning.
"Warning: This plugin has not been tested with your current version of WordPress."
So what is the Status. I mean if I am going to pay a monthly fee for a product, I don't want to pay for one
that is no longer being supported. You have a great product, I'm not bashing it, I'm just wondering what
your next move is because I have business decisions to make for myself, and whether of not this is something
I should stick with.
Please be kind enough to respond.

I am confused about the products your are offering.
What is DMS, Platform and Pagelines!?
Does anyone know what features have been included in the Foundation theme? Such as building blocks or the Motion UI?
When are the docs pages going to refilled?
..and will the content they have replaced be made available somewhere else?
A bit too far into a DMS2 project to drop it for Platform 5, but it certainly gives the impression it will be a lot more of a peppy, positive experience, so I'll shoot for that as the second rollout of the site, but until then- the inbuilt links to content (Docs, sections, answers..) in DMS 2 are either 404 or empty. Perhaps a revision that redirects those pages to the old content so it's available where it's needed and not on the current site / product offering where it would could cause confusion and such.
I will say, I got into Pagelines because my interpretation of it was that it combines the easy (better) parts of NationBuilder, Webly, et al- and allows one to still have ultimate control, where with the aforementioned platforms, you are basically .. SOL.
-BUT- it took a while for exactly what was going on, what all the pieces were, and what exactly the product really was, to click with me.
I might add that, it was looking at the Platform 5 preview that it all started to make sense. Because Platform 5 is not a huge clusterfudge of a pile of stuff that is all essentially the same thing.
I wanted a theme, (WHP), then I saw the options, "oh, well if I get this, then I have 'more'" as the lineup gave me the impression that I can get "the theme" -or- I can get the theme and the framework, along with the PSDs and similarly related assets.
Platform 5 doesn't do any of that at all, but rather say "Here I am, this is going to be great!, Let's go!"
So I just did a fresh install of Platform 5 & the included Framework on a new site and this is what came up on the site:
"Fatal error: Call to undefined function pl_edit_head() in /home1/jacobtip/public_html/mycoastalwellness.com/wp-content/themes/pl-framework/header.php on line 1"
Any ideas on how to fix this?
