Web and social media man for Cook County Government.
Will I be able to add new sections? Will DMS sections and plugins work with both?
1 year ago on Coming back online…
I've built and maintained 6 sites for Cook County Government. You might recognize that as being the home of Chicago. Started with Platform Pro. Have had no real complaints until now--2 weeks before I'm supposed to relaunch all 6 sites in Framework.
Now I'm getting problems with style sheets that wont load in Framework. Worked through a problem on one of the new sites yesterday, now it crops up on a different one. will it work properly on launch day? Up until yesterday i was positive. Now Im fearful.
Although I've read on their site that I can continue to use Framework, I'd like to hear something definitive telling me that I'm good to proceed on the platform I've spent 8 months developing sites on.
Someone also talked about a PL pro group that was for hire. If these problems continue, I'd like to hire them. They should quickly be able to fix what it took my vendor and GoDaddy support hours trying to figure out.
Are any current Framework users having problems loading stylesheets? All of a sudden one of my stylesheets won't load. And on another site, somehow I've lost ALL categories from posts. We've been and still are reviewing with our webhost now; but I understand things are pointing towards Pagelines.
@rabergemann Amen to that. I'm working on a launch of 2 big and 4 smaller government sites. I want to launch the week of 9/12, and I can't migrate everything to DMS.
@MundoCaco @cookcountyblog I can sign on from that url. I can't sign on from the login fields on the "Your Account" tab at the Pagelines section on the Wordpress dashboard.
At some point of their product development, they need to look at their users, determine who have large networks of sites or extremely large sites and figure out how to either help them migrate. Or reassure them that the products and businesses that have been built with the most recent product are safe and supported in the launch of the new product.
I'm not sure if I ever saw an email saying something along the lines of "The Future of Framework after DMS". I'll admit I may have missed it. Did anyone else get something along those lines?
Apple and MS support multiple OS's for years after launch. PL needs to be clear on how closely they will follow that model or not.
Still can't login through the site dashboard. I'm on Framework, and have no thoughts of changing to DMS. I have found docs where PL will keep Framework up and support it for 18-24 months. That's fine from where I sit. I may adopt DMS; but in August, I'd like to launch the 6 sites I've already built in Framework first!
Cant login my dashboard. Changed my password 4 times. Would like to launch a new site within the next 7-10 days. Been with Pagelines since 2011.
I have a website that will have 9-15 categories of information. I like the look of this. Do the thumbnails have to be the same image as what appears in the main image area? Does the section support multiple rows of thumbs? The template is 1320 px wide, can this work on something at that dimension?

Great, Pagelines forum is down.
With 2 tabs created, I get this: http://cookcounty.ws/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Decker-This-is-what-I-get-with-2-images-and-tabs.jpg

And I also deleted and re-uploaded Decker as well.
Same problem persisting.

Ive turned off everything, save for Decker:
This is what I see:

Love your stuff. I'm using Decker. How can I purge the image and accordion information. After installing, I saw the default configuration from the demo, and didn't think a thing of it.
I started loading my own images and accordion information, and wasn't able to see them. I saw one of the 9 images, 3 of the default accordion messages, and none of my own. I've left this to set up to show 1 image and 1 accordion information.
Here are images of my setup:
After more playing and reading deeper into your support thread, It looks like the problem was related to the width of our page (1200 px). This is intended to be a part of a government site and a wider page is a complete 180 degree shift from the narrow format we have now.
When I installed in onto a separate Pagelines site with a width of 1000 px, everything looked fine.
At 1200 px and larger, Slot C separates from Slots D and F. All images increase size by around 20-30%, and during page load all images appear and then "snap back" into place. I don't know if you tested for that. If you ever put out a manual, you might want to mention some kind of optimal page width.
Sorry for using "horrible", but in the two previous posts where I had provided a link, it was my mistake to think you had clicked it already.
The page is set at 1100 px now, and the array looks good. Now I need to fill it with images properly scaled to be square.

I'm going to try to install it in a separate Pagelines install and see what happens. I'm not implying that the section is bad. When I had 800 x 534 images, it looked closer to OK, but loaded funny.
I've done a clean reinstall and it looks bad. I've deactivated plugins and it looks bad. I've made images uniformly square and it looks horrible. I need to eliminate some more variables.
BTW did you check the site?
Just made all images 300x300. Still looks like a hot mess. What is going on?
Just made all images 500 x 500, still looks funny. Horrific in Firefox. I don't have it set as a header. Going to try 300x300 images next.
OK, Ive gone back and made all images completely uniform, 500 x 281. I've deactivated, deleted and reinstalled. It looks like a hot mess; especially in Firefox. I've been working in Chrome. I don't want to look at IE. http://blog.cookcounty.ws
Love this section. I'm having a problem with boxes. Slots F and E have transposed, and the last column is out of kilter. Here's the url http://blog.cookcounty.ws Do I simply reinstall (a pain)? Or is this something bigger (bigger pain)?
