Override Pagelines Header and Footer with Platform 5

Recommended Posts

flourishdesignstudio

Hello,

I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?

Thanks so much for the help!

Hey there, 

For now we have to use the default header and footer from the themes that aren't specifically designed for PL5. This is because we don't want to mess with the functionality of the original site too much (don't want to intrude)

Which theme are you working with?

The Pagelines theme that came before DMS, I think it was just called PageLines. Does that help?

I just checked and it is called Framework. Does that sounds right?

Ya thats the old framework, and yes we've tested things with it but as of now it doesn't allow PL5 to replace the header and footer.

we could look into a patch at some point potentially, wouldn't be too much work :)

      How can I get support on pagelines DMS? The product isn't that old and my skeleton themes aren't working and I can't get support in the same way?

      I have a number of legacy websites that are running on the above version of Pagelines DMS, where the template has stopped working. I am using a skeleton theme to all of them. What do I need to do to rectify this.

      It is with much sorrow that I have to say goodbye to a product that had such great potential.
      There has been no acknowledgement from anybody as to whether or not Pagelines will continue
      or even if they are going to hand it over to someone that would keep the project going. I can't
      keep shelling out money every month to a company that either no longer exists or has chosen to 
      abandoned their customer base. Well it has been a nice 5 years.

      Hi,
      Impossible to download platform 5 from your website (security alert)
      Impossible to download platform from wordpress (no results when I search Pagelines in the wordpress extension platform...)
      What is happening ?
      Pgelines is dead ?
      No news on your blog since 2016... I am a bit worried..

      Hello. I have a big problem, platform 5, the save changes button does not work. All the time, "spins" and can not save modifications. There was information about the account refresh or re-login (due to the token), everything has been done, still saving does not work properly. Help.
      I got an answer on facebook that you have to put the site from scratch, I have a dozen or so - it's some tragedy. So ask for help !!!
      Regards, Kedark
