    This plugin breaks up the header area in my Headway theme while viewing the post and prohibits the theme engine from opening.

    I added those php files from the template which has no impact.

    I LOVE this plugin - it is exactly what I need, but unfortunately breaks the Pagelines template. I tried copying over the files as suggested, but does not seem to make a difference - although Pagelines has an awful lot of folders!

    I would really appreciate it if you have any other suggestions.

    Thanks

    Hi Yolanda,

    I'm really sorry, i cannot test in pagelines 'Drag & Drop' framework as i would need to buy it ! I'm sure it's a great tool, and so it musts be for 'HeadWay'.. Maybe this two premium companies are providing support to help you fix this issue...

    I've registered to your site and tested. I've downloaded an html version of the idea-author template. Then i edited it to match with the markup used by Pagelines.

    What i suggest you to test, as i can't do it myself ;) is to make a local copy of all the files that are listed in the wp-idea-stream/templates directory.
    then edit each files this way :

    1/ replace the 2 first div just under the get_header() call from

    get_header(); ?>
    
    		<div id="container">
    			<div id="content" role="main">

    to

    get_header(); ?>
    
    		<section id="content" class="container fix brandnav-content content-boxes">
    			<div class="texture">
    				<div class="content">
    					<div class="content-pad">
    						<div id="pagelines_content" class="two-sidebar-right fix">
    							<div id="column-wrap" class="fix">

    2/ replace the 2 divs that are just before the get_sidebar() call from :

    </div><!-- #content -->
    		</div><!-- #container -->
    
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    to this :

    </div><!--#column-wrap-->
    
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    3/ add this markup after the get_sidebar() function but <b>before</b> the get_footer() function :

    </div><!--#pagelines_content-->
    				<div class="clear"></div>
    			</div><!--.content-pad-->
    		</div><!--.content-->
    	</div><!--.texture-->
    </section><!--#content-->

    Once you edited on file, test it on your server, i would suggest directly in your active theme directory but, you can also do it in wp-idea-stream/templates directory. If you do so be sure to keep a version of all your files, because if one day i upgrade the plugin, you'll lost your templates..

    Once done, if the template is displaying the right way, then repeat for all the others idea stream templates..

    I hope it will help you solve your trouble. Thanks for your interest in this plugin.

    Hi imath,

    Remember this plugin also breaks Headway theme. So it looks like a theme breaker plugin :).

    hi caps,

    i don't know if it breaks headway.. it doesn't break pagelines, as yolanda only needs to adapt wp idea stream templates.

    My point is : i do plugin for free and try to give the best support i can. As you buy headway, maybe they can give you a hand fixing your trouble. i guess they must have a good support..

    i think your last post is not fair, if the plugin is not behaving the right way in your theme, then just don't use it.

    How creating plugins for free has anything to do with it breaking components of themes while other plugins do not. It is not fair to describe that it breaks a Headway theme? Am I to be quite about that?

    Your response: "ok thank you for you feed back." Whats that about? That was as far as the discussion went, you never even asked me the error I got.

  9. Headway themes are behind a paywall: http://headwaythemes.com/

    It's nigh impossible for him to test with Headway unless he has it, so he can't fix it.

    That's what's at point here.

    Mr. Mika,
    : Correction Ms. Mika

    Update yourself on this thread - which means "read from the start." I like fellas who just jumps midway into a discussion while not reading the critical areas of content.

    Anyway, I know you want to be helpful, however please read the post.

  12. It's 'Ms' as it happens.

    Your response: "ok thank you for you feed back." Whats that about? That was as far as the discussion went, you never even asked me the error I got.

    That means 'Thanks' and the reason it went no further is because it cannot. I did read the entire thread, it's part of my job as moderator to make sure I do that before I jump in.

    How creating plugins for free has anything to do with it breaking components of themes while other plugins do not. It is not fair to describe that it breaks a Headway theme? Am I to be quite about that?

    I'm afraid your English is making this conversation complicated. I'm presuming you mean to ask this:

    "How is creating a plugin for free have anything to do with the fact that it breaks a theme?"

    and

    "Is it not fair for me to say that your plugin breaks Headway theme?"

    and

    "Am I to be quiet about that?"

    To answer all of those, I give you this. Free themes and plugins come with limited support. There are limitations to what someone who is doing this for free, our of their own free time and good will, are capable of doing. One of those limitations is that the developer does not have the resources to test with any and all themes. If the theme had been a free theme, available from WordPress.org's repository, then he would be able to test and determine if the issue is his plugin or the theme.

    Therefore we know this information: You have reported the plugin doesn't work on your site which is using Headway.

    The developer has offered some generic advice, which is all he is capable of doing. This is support within reason. You certainly don't have to stay quiet about this, but you must accept the limitations with which free plugins come. And that is what is at issue here.

    Pardon me - Ms.

    Unfortunately my grammar on that sentence was bad, and unfortunately you have not read the post from the beginning. Let me help. I stated that I would give him access to the site. There was no response.

    If I was the developer, I would have responded: Caps, I have no time to go to your site and check out the problem. I have little time and must get on with other things.

    I just do not understand saying it breaks Headway theme editor is not being fair.

    I would like to thank the developer for a great plugin and support. I made the changes suggested in the WP-Idea-stream template folder and it worked!

  15. Well in a perfect world everyone would be clear all the time ;) I think you can both forgive each other for a little lack of clarity, given the circumstances.

    I just do not understand saying it breaks Headway theme editor is not being fair.

    It's not fair because you don't know that it's true :) Plugin/theme conflicts are sadly far more complex than that. It could be another plugin, it could be your theme customizations (if you have any), it could be your server. There's a lot more to it than just 'this theme and this plugin' :/ Otherwise debugging wouldn't be such a pill!

    Hi Mika, Yolanda, caps,

    I'm sorry, i'm not english, so i'll try to do my best.

    1/ Thanks for your explanations to all of you.

    2/ caps said 'So it looks like a theme breaker plugin'
    I think it's an 'unfair' shortcut to say as it's not working on Headway then it's a 'theme breaker'. Because i understand the plugin is breaking all the available themes. Moreover i cannot check what's going wrong as Mika said.

    3/ When i can do something, i try to do it as Yolanda kindly confirmed.

    4/ your first post was just a straight info that the plugin was messing in headway, as i cannot do anything i politely said 'thanks for the info'. I never ask for site access because it's a big responsability.

    5/ Finally, i was a bit surprised by caps post because if i was him, the plugin is not working on my theme, the theme is the most important as i paid for it so i dont use the plugin. I can understand he's unhappy, but why saying on this forum that the plugin breaks all the themes ??

    Again, thanks Mika and Yolanda for your explanations and sorry caps the plugin is not working in headway framework.

    Bye.

    Hi imath,

    Did not realize that saying it was a theme breaker was so offensive. I apologize.
