Documentation for Pl5 and extensions?

Recommended Posts


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These Docs Are No Longer Updated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 We are now at DMS 2 and these docs are no longer active.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.

Once you activate Signup. Any PL Button section has an extra OPT checkbox.


Tick this and just put a # in for the link. 

It then acts as the CTA sign up


Fill out this form to your needs.


While this does not have the same UI as DMS it does function well. 

Hope this helps.

      Hi there,
      I've getting a recurring error:
      "Platform 5 Connection IssuecURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired"
      I can't get the Extension Engine to load. It just times out. Same happens on two different sites that I run (www.innerear.co.uk and www.tradtv.scot, which I'm currently rebuilding).
      I've tried disabling all plugins (apart from Platform 5) andI contacted my hosts and they aren't blocking any IP addresses. I've deactivated and reactivated the Platform 5 plugin and disconnected and reconnected my account.
      Is there an issue with the Pagelines SSL certificate or something else causing the connection issue and stopping the extension engine from loading (it just spins with the LOADING cog and nothing happens, regardless of how long I leave it).
      Any help much appreciated.

      I am using DMS theme with Pagelines 5, I created a new page which is all 5, when I add extensions like boxes and text etc, after I save and refresh the order on the appearence of the Extensions gets al out of whack on the page.  The oreder in which they appear in the editor is still correct, is is just on the page, so Boxes for example should have been my 3rd element is now at the top of the screen. 
      Any suggestions ?

      I was previously using pagelines: pinspro.
      I updated to Frame theme & platform 5 plug-in.
      My problem is that I can not access extend. When I click on the tab I automatically get:
      "Nothing was found for the selected query."
      How do I fix this, and why doesn't my theme look like the YouTube tutorial?
