Axis 2 issues

Bill Irwin

Aug 14, 2014 09:23PM EDT

I've been using Axis happily for a long time so was happy to see development of Axis 2 - paid my $60 and installed. I've just spent an hour trying to customise settings but can't get them to 'stick' eg changing typefaces, removing footer links. It looks good then does a refresh and reverts to prior settings.

I'm not confident enough to push the publish button so have reverted to the prior stable version on Axis. Before I installed Axis 2 I upgraded from 0.16.0 to 0.17.2, that seemed to go ok and was stable. In general the whole site - draft and published - seems quite slow at the moment, not sure if that is a coincidence. I've cleared system caches a couple of times but no help. Looks like I'll sit back and wait for an update of two before I try again.

update: I have gone ahead and pushed out Axis 2, it is functioning ok although still a bit inconsistent with retaining changes in settings - often takes several attempts to get something to actually change. Lots of potential though, I like the added flexibility - if you want to check how it looks it's www.billirwinarts.com

Bill – it sounds to me like there may have been some latency going on with your server where setting were being saved at the same time that new settings were being assigned and it got confused. You might just want to try getting in the habit of letting the preview refresh after making an edit and keeping an eye on the spinner next to the Publish button at bottom right (that shows whenever a draft is being saved). Obviously not 100% sure that’s what was happening here but it sounds plausible to me. :)

Glad to hear you’re enjoying Axis and appreciate the support.

thanks Todd, yes sever latency is probably it, I was making a lot of changes quickly.

It's going well now - except I can't change settings in the Site Publishing area. eg I'm trying to edit the site title. When I click 'save settings' , it goes 'saving'... then says 'Settings successfully changed' but then at that point the setting reverts to the original. Same for Time Zone in console - it has reverted to Africa/Abidjan and won't change.

Brad just noticed this comment - actually I had sent ftp / login details before (on 16th), not sure if they got buried but still not able to change settings in site admin area
