Fatal error: Cannot redeclare

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare

I made it all the way through the setup stage with CMS2. However, when I put the developers notes part of the code onto the following page I'm getting errors.

Page: small_business.php

Error:
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare wa_getcmscontent() (previously declared in /home/bayareaw/public_html/WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php:2) in /home/bayareaw/public_html/cms/WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php on line 68

Please let me know what it's going to take to fix this???

it looks a change has been made to the WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php file.

The error is saying that the function wa_getcmscontent() is declared twice in that file. Once at line 2 and again at line 68.


That file should only have 11 lines of code in it.


You should re-download the PowerCMS files from your download center and replace the WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php on your server with a fresh copy from the downloaded files.

Some success...

I tried what you suggested but it didn't work. Then I thought I'd just try it on a blank page and it worked fine. So, I'm assuming that it has to do with the fact that this is a page that uses elements from the powerstore? Could there be some conflict between adding the developers notes to a page that is in the powerstore?

Here's the page that worked:
test.php

Here's the page that it didn't"
gallery.php

Or, could it be a template problem????

I just tried starting with a blank page, got the CMS to work. Then I went back to and applied the main template to the page and the errors came up again. I'm assuming that the problem is in my template? Can you please tell me what I need to do to be able to make this work for me????

Thanks in advance.

AOn your template, you have the WA_CMS.php included at line 3

<?php require_once('../WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php'); ?>


because of this, when you add the developer nots to a file that is based on the template, you do not need to include it again.

instead of using this code:

php:
<?php

include('/home/bayareaw/public_html/cms/WA_CMS/addtosite.php');
echo 
WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection$PowerCMSConnection'test''Content'false);
?>




you can just use:

php:
<?php

echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection$PowerCMSConnection'test''Content'false);
?>

Different error...

I replaced the code and now I'm getting:

Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/bayareaw/public_html/WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php on line 3

Warning: mysql_query(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/bayareaw/public_html/WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php on line 5

I've also attached the page that the problem is coming up on:

gallery.php

Thanks for your help. I'm really trying to understand this so I can stop bugging you guys.

More info...
I was wondering if I may have found the problem. I'm trying to use the powerstore along with the PowerCMS. I'm trying to make changes to pages using the PowerCMS and that's when I'm running into problems. When I do it in the PowerStore it works. It just seems like it's easier to manage more pages with the PowerCMS. Is there a way to manage pages with the PowerCMS even though I'm running the PowerStore? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance....again.

PowerStore 3 has PowerCMS functionality built in for this purpose.

Does that mean that the PowerCMS doesn't work??

So am I to understand that there's no way to get the PowerCMS to work with the PowerStore? It's okay if it doesn't, I just need to understand how these things work.

I'm looking to manage around 60 pages and it just seemed like the PowerCMS was the way to go as the functionality is somewhat different within the PowerStore.

Specifically, we liked the idea of logging in, and clicking on the "edit" links on the pages. Is there any way to do that?

Thanks for you help.

No, you cannot run PowerCMS in a PowerStore site, the tow cannot be integrated into the same pages.
