CleanSave
[resolved] Remove from Homepage (13 posts)

    Hi

    Before you think this is a stupid question, I know there is a check box to remove the links from the homepage. This option does not resolve the small problem I am experiencing.

    My website has a page set as the homepage, so even with "front page" and "homepage" set to exclude, the CleanSave link box still appears awkwardly on my homepage.

    I'm using the Headway theme and simply want to remove CleanSave from my homepage. Is there a way I can remove CleanSave from certain select pages such as the page I have set as my homepage in WordPress? Thanks.

    The other option would be to ditch the buttons and use the short codes to control which pages you wish to have buttons displayed on.

    The shortcode method is not working as the button is not appearing.

    I'm using the Headway theme and I have a functions.php and a custom_functions.php.

    I can not edit functions.php for this framework as it will stop functioning correctly and the custom_functions.php (which is designed for these custom changes) has no effect for some reason

    I added this to custom_functions.php:

    add_shortcode('cleansave_button', 'get_cleansave_button');
    function get_cleansave_button() {
    if( function_exists('cleansave_add_save_button') ){
    return cleansave_add_save_button();
    }
    }

    and the short code
    [cleansave_button] and I tried [get_cleansave_button] to pages and posts.

    I have a tutorial site with 60+ pages (not including posts) so I really want to add CleanSave to these pages except for the one designated the homepage.

    Is there anyway I can remove CleanSave from just one specific page?

    So either WordPress is not applying the is_front () tag to the homepage, or the plugin is not recognizing it.

    I found this website concerning shortcodes and Headway. See if this helps.

    I can help you get plugin organizer setup correctly so it will disable CleanSave for you.

    Hey Jeff, what do you recommend?

    First you need to make sure you can disable plugins on other pages or posts. Make sure you have the mu-plugins piece in the mu-plugins folder. Make sure you have the disable plugins radio button set to on on the settings page. Make sure you have pages checked under post type support on the settings page. What do you mean by static home page? Is it a static file or a page post type you have set to your home page?

    Did you understand the things I wanted you to check and have any answers for my questions?

    Hi Jeff,

    Yes I followed your instructions.

    First you need to make sure you can disable plugins on other pages or posts.

    I can NOT disable other plugins.

    Make sure you have the disable plugins radio button set to on on the settings page.

    Set to disable.

    Make sure you have pages checked under post type support on the settings page.

    I have posts and pages checked off.

    Make sure you have the mu-plugins piece in the mu-plugins folder.

    The MU-plugin folder. My installation of WordPress does not have this. I've never heard of "must-use" plugins before. I've been reading up on this the last few days to better understand as this is probably the solution to my problem.

    When I select "move" and click submit under "manage mu plugin file" I get the error: "There was an issue moving the MU component"

    What do you mean by "MU-plugin piece"?

    What do you mean by static home page?

    By static homepage I mean I have a WP page set as homepage. Not a static file with WP installed in a directory.

    Almost have it figured out. Thanks for your help Jeff.

    The mu-plugin piece is the problem. That is the php class that does the disabling. The user your web server runs as cant write to the wp-content folder so it cant create the mu-plugins folder for you.
    You need to create a folder in wp-content named mu-plugins. The best thing would be to set the permissions for that folder so the user your web server runs as can write to it. Then when you install an update to plugin-organizer the mu-plugin piece would be updated automatically. If you have access to run commands on your server change the ownership of that folder to whatever your web server user is. Then use the move function under "manage mu plugin file".
    If you cant change the owner of the folder then you will have to move the file manually. In the plugin-organizer folder there is a folder named lib. Inside the lib folder there is a file named PluginOrganizerMU.class.php. Copy that file to the mu-plugins folder you just created and you will be able to disable plugins.
    In the future you will need to manually copy that file to the mu-plugins folder any time you upgrade plugin-organizer if you were not able to set the right permissions for the file to be moved automatically.

    Hi Jeff,

    I could NOT get it to work!

    Kidding, it works great. Thanks for your help.

    The error message:

    "There was an issue moving the MU component"

    Was not clear enough for me to know what to do. I would have never thought it was a simple "writable" issue.

    I will work on a better error message for that error. Thanks for taking the time to get it working. A lot of people run into this problem. If you have any more problems open a support post and I'll help you get it figured out.
