Newsletter Slider Form from DMS into platform5?

Recommended Posts



I had a nice feature from DMS on a site i'm upgrading from DMS to platform5. How can i get the functionality of the old DMS "Pagelines Signup" section? It had a great user interface that provides user with a slider switch that uncovered a simple signup form.


See https://cassclayton.com for sample of what i need to recreate in platform5, upper right column.

Edgar - Have installed and activated Signup. However don't see a place in Wordpress backend to create one and set up its parameters. Did not see a Signup option in Widgets.

Don't see documentation on Pagelines (from product page) that tells how to craft a short code. Can you help?

(Indeed, there have been several times i've searched Pagelines for User Documentation on Extensions. Sometimes have found old pages that were out of date and relevant to old versions of Pagelines. Great service will be performed by the team who builds a great User's Manual for all the Pagelines products.)

      Exited about the new Platform 5, but just started building a site in DMS2 and want to upgrade it to Platform 5. In the Facebook User Group it was a post that had a few steps to do this, and one of them was to copy the content from DMS into Platform 5. My question is on how do I really copy the content so I can keep all the work I have done so far?
      Thanks and best regards,

      I might be missing something very obvious, but how do I update my Pagelines DMS theme to DMS 2? When I go into my Wordpress 4.2.2 dashboard, no DMS updates are available, yet when I go into the theme preview, it says I have version 1.1.1. Aren't you on like v2.1 now or something?
      Thanks, Mark

      Hi there. 
      I'm a tad nervous regarding upgrading my whole site (www.ectopicbeats.dk) from Pagelines to DMS 2. 
      Cheers, Rasmus

      I just updated to the later version of Pagelines & Wordpress 3.7.1 and it screwed up my website. In particular the Features panel now repeats down the page and after hours of working to resolve this my only solution is to turn off Features (which I've done on the Home Page but not the other pages).
      Additionally, my Fixed NavBar no longer shows the Sub Pages on my site to navigate to. I have also been working on this with no success. This is the second time upgrading to your newest version has created more work and hassles than providing any additional solutions. 
      Deeply Frustrated!
