Well all i can say is that PageLines has done a fantastic job to this point in the creation of DMS. We are absolutely loving it. Can't wait to see where this goes from here. Thanks :)

@Dannyh @florantcreative @CaseyGraffix OK I've sent you a email.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Your DMS awaits.
If I use DMS to create the design for the client and then lockout the features how would the client update the text and images, scroller images, basically maintain the content within their site. There's more to CMS than a blog.
Yes otherwise it's not really providing a CMS to the client.
Sorry this was a reply that ended as a new post, I was trying to figure out how to give a client access to the builder once I handover the site, usually I make them a author and handover that way, locking the DMS features using the wp-config as documented closes off any tools the client would have to edit hero sections and so forth, leaving the options open to the client leaves them with access to my activation code, how do we give a final design to a client and protect our account at the same time.
I'm new to pagelines and DMS and this was the first thing I tried, once the toolset is locked then there's no access to edit the components at all,. I'm not sure how this can be the final product for a developer unless one is designing static sites for clients. It kind of defeats the purpose of using WP if a client only has access to blog posts and new page options.
@scoophk Another way around this issue is to use a custom widget called 2046~ Easy which will allow you to insert anything as a looper and place it in a widitized box allowing the end user to still add post etc as required. 2046 allows anything to be looped based on meta, cats, post and so on.
@scoophk @CaseyGraffix Open up you wp-config.php file and find this line define('WP_DEBUG', false);
Now right after that line add the following:-
define( 'PL_EDITOR_LOCK', 'admin' );
Is there a way around the following requirement?
If we develop a clients web site for them and do the hand over, then proceed to lock out the editor so they can't access our developers license then how do they edit the majority of their website, i.e Hero Box text and so forth. Seems like the system isn't designed to cater for this type of use which in my opinion make the system pretty limited.
Are there going to options at some stage that lock out the design features but allow end user access to edit the components that were added to the system.
@Brenden @Matthew01970 @nphaskins But isn't the term life 'software life' the life of Pagelines? Pagelines selling shelf life has expired in its current form and replaced with a new piece of software called DMS.
I'm sure you still own PageLines like i do so you still have functioning software and I'm sure the Page Lines staff will give you access to your PageLines downloads if you email them.
But DMS is a new invention so I can't see how you expect to receive this under your old agreement, black and white to me.
@Dannyh @CaseyGraffix Fantastic, you just made my night. Cheers!!!!!!
@nphaskins @CaseyGraffix Awesome, is this something that needs to be discussed in forums once they are up and running later in the week or is there a function that i can call. Thanks :)
Nick, I have a question that i cant find the answer to anywhere. Just playing with DMS and loving it. BUT once i complete a site and hand it over to the client how do I prevent them from accessing my PL code under the account sections, is there a way to lock down this area. Thanks in advanced.
Yeah - Well done to all involved, it truly is amazing and YES I now agree will be a game changer.

@x3mgroup Where did you find those. @88 a year for a developer is really good pricing. I was expecting it to be a lot more expensive. :)
Found this and it also looks very interesting, seems as if they are going down the DMS path also, no mention on when it will be released though. http://ultimatumx.com they are also claiming it to be the ultimate design suite???
10 hours to go - yippee
Oh, I think that's a little rude of him BUT it was going to happen shortly after release anyway. I think I'll be going with innovators rather than a team that can only copy a great idea. At least you know better for future. Only 5 more sleeps now :)
7 months, 3 weeks ago on What competitors think about DMS
@nphaskinsSorry this just looks like every other design I've seen from Pagelines. At the time i was looking for a new solution I was unable to re-create my concept for the client exactly as required.
For example http://www.terrafirmalabs.com.au/production/index.php this is the site I'm currently developing and I could not get this design to work with P.L. Hence i went back to my normal way of designing using Dreamweaver. Everything within this page can be edited via my CMS if this could be re-created exactly out of the box I'd love to hear how.
If I have to start hacking things to do it in PL I may as well do what i do now and use Dreamweaver. Is my point still nonsense? I think not. The point I was trying to make is that I had hoped DMS would allow for such layouts not functions.
