Content not displaying after inserting Developer Notes

Content not displaying after inserting Developer Notes

Guys

I have bought Power CMS and followed the instruction closely. I have managed to get the CMS loaded and into admin. After that instructions for making it work are non existent. I have tried creating content areas and using developer notes on a php page but nothing works. Is there anything out there to talk me through it?

There shouldn't be anything else in addition to copying the developer notes to the page. Make sure you're adding the developer notes into the code view if you're using Dreamweaver and make sure to not insert it between the opening and closing of some php tags.

Next!

Thanks for you response Jimmy. I have pasted the developer notes into a content div on the home page. When I do the page displays as blank. See: www.oxeyes.org. If we remove the code the page (simple boxes for testing) appears. Any ideas?

I have seen on the FAQ page about this:

===========================================================

"The content is not appearing on my page.
On some servers, the Developer Notes will not display properly and instead will appear something like:

<?php
include('/home/users/mysite/CMS/WA_CMS/addtosite.php');
echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, '@@content-group@@', '@@content-ref@@', false@@order@@);
?>

Follow these steps to fix this issue:

1. Within your PowerCMS files, open the Fuel.php.js file found in the js/lighter/ directory.
2. Change lines 64 - 65, which currently look like this:

start: this.strictRegExp('<?php', '<?=', '<%', '<script language="php">'),
end: this.strictRegExp('?>', '%>', '</script>')

to this:

start: this.strictRegExp('<'+'?php', '<'+'?=', '<'+'%', '<scr'+'ipt language="php">'), end: this.strictRegExp('?'+'>', '%'+'>', '</scr'+'ipt>')

3. Save this file and upload it to your live server, replacing the original file.
4. View any Developer Notes now and the @@area-name@@ references will be replaced with the correct reference.

=============================================

I've done this and no change. Any ideas? I have a feeling it is something simple!


Another question if I may? My customer wants to place Word docs on his pages for people to open and print as you might on a normal web page. Can he do this in the HTML editor?

Looking forward to your reply as this has been an annoying problem!!! Webassist stuff is usually good!

Yours

when a page displays blank, it means a php error is occurring.

to turn error reporting on add the following coed at line 1:

php:
<?php
error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>



As for setting up downloading of doc files, the best way to get this done is to use Digital File Pro or Universal Email 4 to set up an area where the client can upload files and then using the same extension set up a download for the files. If you need help with that, please post a new thread for it in the Universal Email forum.

Progress or not

Nope - didnt work. I am displaying remoteley as dont' have a local server set up. I also noticed you cant see the page code using view source so here it is:

======================================

<?php error_reporting(E_ALL);ini_set('display_errors','on');?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<link href="sample.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>

<body>
<div class="container">
<div class="header"></div>
<div class="navigation"></div>
<div class="content"> <?php
include('/home/sites/oxeyes.org/public_html/WA_CMS/addtosite.php');
echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, '@@content-group@@', '@@content-ref@@', false@@order@@);
?> </div>
</div>
</body>
</html>

=====================================

You can see the error reprting code at the top an the 'content code' in the content div.

What am I doing wrong?

That's interesting, the developer notes aren't being generated correctly for your CMS. They should look something like this:
<?php
include('/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/PCMS2/WA_CMS/addtosite.php');
echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'test', 'Content', false);
?>

Try changing the developers notes in this way:
Replace the @@content-group@@ with what is filled in the Content Location drop down while editing the content in the admin section.
Replace the @@content-ref@@ with what is filled in the Content Area text box while editing the content in the admin section.
Then remove the @@order@@.
