Kick Ass Designer and Above Average Developer
@atcdomainsolutions this store shouldn't even be accessible anymore. Find the new one at pagelines.com/shop. How did you find this btw?

@DianeRuiz721 this is ABSURD! Where is the proof? Or are you just assuming that it's the theme? So it couldn't be any of the plugins you have installed, or your host, or wordpress, but DMS?
WHAT emailed you?
Wordpress with themes has 2,756 items. DMS by itself has 664 items. How can you only have 592 files?

@aliceerickson @nphaskins nope already been updated!
1 year ago on What is a DMS?
@aliceerickson Don't worry about the add-ons, we've (third party devs) been working very hard to update them all. I updated all 30 of my store extensions and work perfect with DMS.
@Matthew01970 @nphaskins @mattmatt I must have missed the announcement that they were not hacked.
@redefiler what are you talking about? You have been nonstop with trolling these comments for weeks now. Have you seriously got nothing better to do? I really can't understand how you can put so much energy into hate.
@knowtheoffers $8 a month. That's like a starbucks drink. You have to understand the monthly model. Let's take a maid for example. DO you think she would keep coming back, month after month, after month, if you only paid her a one time fee of $100? How would she keep making money, and keep buying better supplies to clean your house more efficiently?
So instead of a one time fee, you pay her only $10 a month. And you keep them working for you. Non-stop.
@gladiador yep that are's styles are blown out at the moment. still lots to fix.
@Matthew01970 Ahh, so you did download it. It does not require an activation free. there's a free version. If you want to unlock pro features, you can sign up for a subscription.
@MichaelDevaney ya it really really is. I have an article on my personal blog i'm trying to finish. It pits DMS against Headway and Genesis, and it only compares facts about the tech inside these frameworks. DMS clearly wins by a long shot.
@Matthew01970 yes, that link was up ALL day yesterday. a link to a zip file. With the move, I'm sure its' only been temporarily removed (its only been gone for 10 hours). I'm sure when they get going, it'll be their priority.
@MichaelDevaney thanks for understanding man. ya it sucks. I myself still dont have a key and can't activate so we're all in the same boat for sure.
@Matthew01970 its like 9 am there where they are and they probably were up to 6AM getting you guys worked out like the night before.
@MichaelDevaney the guys are working to get everything up. They were hacked twice within the last 24 hours and DNS to the new servers has just propagated.
@redefiler then use another framework. Nobody is holding you hostage. You have the freedom, to choose what you want to use. If DMS doesn't work for you, then choose something else. It's that simple.
@mattmatt @Matthew01970 its 7:52 A.M where those guys are at, and they were likely up to 6AM again just liek the night before. Why not cut them some slack? Have you ever been hacked? Twice within 24 hours? Have you ever had to rebuild an entire system from backups? It's not just the site, it's the site, forum, activations server, sales api, product api, etc. Just relax. I'm sure everyone will get worked out.
FFS I haven't even received a key yet, and my activations don't work either. It's everyone.
@Matthew01970 for the life of the product. DMS is a new product.
@redefiler so its like that 2011 Jeep that now won't drive on road
So you think the previous version just stops working?
@CaseyGraffix Yep they have a lock down feature. It's not documented but it lets you lock down the editor and stuff.
@sheasbys 3rd party extensions you WILL NOT have to purchase again. They are working on getting this stuff added.
@Brenden @nphaskins ya how DARE PageLines, charge for what they've just spent 2 years working on. OMG I cannot believe they would charge for a completely new version.
@Brenden @nphaskins How so? You have a prior version of PageLines. DO you expect them to give you the next version for free?
@Brenden @MaxwellBoardman There seems to be 4 choices, please correct me if I"m wrong
@Brenden So when you buy a 2011 Jeep, do you call them greedy because they won't just give you the 2012 model?
@codebreak no I'm not a moderator, and I do not work for PageLines. I have to buy everything just like everyone else does.
1 year ago on What competitors think about DMS
@FnqWeb High opinion of himself? lol Give me less than 12 hours and I"ll have you an in-depth post explaining why DMS blows away anything that's out there, period, all based on facts.
@schnnmbr Headway has nothing on this, I've used both.
@ml4 thanks for the reminder. It's just a little frustrating to see these types of comments, knowing first hand how much work the guys have put into this product.
@codebreak You seem like more of a bully than anything else with a comment like that, but of course we can only speculate because you have no avatar, and your only comment using livefyre, is this one. Throw us a link to your facebook/twitter profile so we can see who the comment is coming from.
Always have to consider the source ya know.
And yes, DMS is miles ahead of PageLines. Why not hold off judgement until you actually see the product for yourself instead of singing up some fake account and trolling the comments.
@redefiler do you have something against me? or do you just continuously troll these comments?
@SquarePenguin Just hold off judgement until you see it first hand. I've played with Headway and the likes and it's nothing like that.
WPMU is a feckin joke, and has been since they started posted tutorials on how to add icons to your menu. However at the same time, DMS is being open-sourced, so if anything, all he got was a head start.
@batonrougecounseling hey thanks I really appreciate that! My site is actually a custom DMS theme, that I built to sell in the store for the launch. The parallax you see is custom to the theme, as are all the sections that are included (I'm dogfooding my own stuff cause I liked it so much). I also can't answer your other question, cause I don't exactly know if I can. ;)
1 year ago on The problem with themes…
@DaveBlewitt just wanted to clarify who exactly you were talking to? Your response seems entirely out of context.
@redefiler thanks for reinforcing my point.
@eric_dlab that's exactly right. the scripts that the sections load are only loading on the page where the section is used. this has been a feature of pagelines for quite some time, as well as the section API. This is why we build products for a living, and sell them in the store, because there have always been mechanisms in place to facilitate rapid development.
@DaveBlewitt @nphaskins @CaseyGraffix Dreamweaver?!?!?! lol OK i'm going to pretend I didn't hear that and list reasons why, its actually harder work to NOT use PageLines. I take on VERY few clients a year with big budgets and I tell them all the same thing.
PageLines sections, only run code on the pages they are used on. This is HUGE, it means you never have to muck around using conditionals or any of that shit cause it just happens automagically.
- Section API
The section API is extensive, and allows developers to write sections in literally no time at all.Custom themes, ARE a harmonious blend of multiple custom designed sections. Sections, are at the core of PageLines.
The grid, labels, badges, js components, modals, etc. PagelInes has all of this on board, not sure why on earth you'd want to write your own responsive grids when everything is just there and ready. Especially with utility classes so when you write markup you can adjust margin on the fly.
Dont have to worry about writing css, and you surely dont have to worry about a compiler because PageLines has it's own onboard LESS compiler. Writing in LESS intead of CSS offers an insurance policy with cross-browser compatibility because you don't have to muck around using vendor prefixes.
- Option Engine
Build any option you want. Select menus, text areas, image uploads, etc. You can build a section and a theme with custom options that utilize the option engine.
- Drag and Drop
Notice how I list this last. This is cool no doubt..for the end user. What excites me more, as a developer, is the API and how core functions work. But all of this underlying stuff, only leads to better experience for the end user, and that is ultimately who we're selling too.
I could go on, further, if you want, but if you really want to recreate everything above, that's your own call. IMO, most developers stopped using Dreamweaver about 10 years ago. Everything is responsive now, the only good way to develop is with a code editor (Sublime), and a browser that you can constantly resize to make sure everything is kosker from desktop to mobile.
@flidget It seems that every one of your posts are negative. If you're that bothered why keep posting? Why not go plant a flower and be happy?
@VictorNoyes yep having it running on multisite now
@Brenden Dude right there with you.
@CaseyGraffix @nphaskins The client gave me specs, and was designed from scratch matching to the spec 100%. PageLines doesn't stop you from doing this, only the lack of konwing code does.
@CaseyGraffix @nphaskins bahhahahah did you EVEN look at the site, or just the home page? There isn't ONE stock PageLines section in that site. Period.
Read that, and tell me again that it looks like every other PageLines site. My point is, if you know code, and are a real developer, then you can do anything you want on PageLines, period.
@DaveBlewitt @nphaskins http://modernfarmer.com
That's PageLines. I completely gutted and built from scratch according to spec. To say they don't offer freedom is nonesense, to say the least. DMS is no different, in fact it' sbetter for the end users, equally as awesome for the developer. If you know how to program, you can do whatever you want. They have a solid section API, that's been improved with DMS.
@DaveBlewitt @MichaelDevaney I design things for the web, exclusively, and make a pretty handsome living at it, courtesy of PageLines.
@hennings @mikezielonka ya you'll be happy to hear docs are already mostly completed for 3rd party stuff with some other cool tools to help you learn faster launching soon.
@hennings DUDE I hear you on that one man. Really really want something that gets out of my way. I get these jobs from high profile clients about 2-3 times a year. I would NOT choose any other platform but PageLines, period. The drag and drop interface is for users, the tech underneath is for us developers. Trust me man, if it weren't legit, I'd be out of there, and those who know me know that I speak very openly.
@Jack Tummers Right now this doesn't work with post formats ( I don't recall seeing any buttons on the demo with post formats). I have another product called Looks Like Tumblr that supports post formats.

@redefiler @nphaskins @flidget you are sorely mistaken lolol. You obviously have no idea what Google Apps does. You manage everything from email@example.com, and you send and receive as firstname.lastname@example.org. The end user never sees gmail. Gmail has syncing for mobile, desktop, ipad, its backed up, it's spam filter is amazing.
But you go and continue using "webmail." Whatever makes you happy.
1 year ago on Why DMS will be open source.
@redefiler @etc @TampaGreg What on earth makes you think it's "sneaky"? Do you feel like you have been deceived with a teaser announcement of a company's changing business model?
Your comment is full of , "i'm guessing", and "i'm speculating" which does nothing but put gas on the fire. Don't speculate, don't guess, and just hold out to see what the announcement is.
@webranger1962 lol trust zero? lol
