Docs and..

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!"

There are no docs, references, or what (that I can find) for Platform 5, which are probably not done and thats why. But pagelines.com now has nothing when docs are selected. There are links and references in DMS2 that refer back to content at pagelines.com that is no longer there, that are still valid resources for all those installations of DMS 2 that have not migrated to Platform 5. 

Are Extensions the same for the two frameworks, (I believe the answer is no), but it appears that I'm directed to content that is for Platform 5 when I select "Extend" from DMS, and the help / docs links on it are either 404 or empty, where I can see that it's going to get replaced with Platform 5 content.

      Hi guys
      Is there a place where people can find "Users Manuals" for some of the core stuff in Pl5? Like shortcodes and how to use and setup some of the Extensions?
      The Signup Extension is driving me nuts - can't see where to actually add it to a page, widget, section after installing/activating. Have run into this frustration with other things.
      Searched and found this on Github: https://github.com/pagelines/Docs
      These Docs Are No Longer Updated
      These docs were originally created for DMS 1. We are now at DMS 2 and these docs are no longer active. To get the most up-to-date documentation, please click the links below.

      Hi fellow forum members,
      Is it just me, or has the PageLines staff gone dark? I have multiple open threads with zero response and some have been open for months. As a paying customer, that is pretty frustrating. Does anyone else has made the same experience? Any suggestions on how to get support here?
      Thanks
      Michael

      The Nav Pro section on our site venicepride [dot] org keeps breaking. Can someone help us out with why it is breaking or how to fix. Willing to pay.

      Hi,
      somehow my post navigation won't show up beneath a post.
      Link to the website (Platform 5)
      Also with all plugins deactivated nothing shows up.
      I'd also like to make the post navigation visible on custom post types.
      What should I do:
      Continue to look for a CSS error? Or make a new section with a post navigation? ... ? Somebody give me hint please?
      Kind regards,
      Thijs

      Hi,

      I noticed that PL5 uses flexbox for it's responsive grid. I think this is awesome. 
      But now there's a project coming in where I know I'll have to support older crappier browsers as well. Any thoughts on this? Should I only use PL5 for project where we're focused on modern browsers? Or should I use custom CSS to insert a float-based fallback grid..? 

      Thanks!
