Site Sculptor - no navigation added??

Hi,

I'm not sure if it is something I have done, but I created a site template and imported it into SS. I then site my site up and uploaded it to my server, linked it to the database. When I view the live site the home page displays ( testsite ). The problem is there is no navigation....

Can someone enlighten me to the error or help me correct the error.

when creating a custom template to use as a site design in site sculptor, you will need to add the following editable regions:
* Navigation: For inserting the navigation menu
* Content: For inserting the page's content
* Footer: For inserting the footer links

My guess is that your template does not have a navigation editable region for site sculptor to insert the menu.

See the following documentation for creating custom templates:
creating-custom-templates.php

Hi,

I have created all these editable areas and have uploaded the site as a 'preset'. Everything look fine, but when I go to create the site the content page does not show the navigation. The 'home page' shows the navigation, but the content page I have uploaded does not.

My template file has a few editable regions and another issue I have is that the footer is not editable even though I specified it as the footer when I imported the template.....

This is only causing a problem when I try to build the site....??

I'm a little puzzled by this and I have no idea how to get around this issue. I can see that the writer files are being created and script to add navigation is in the correct place.

Can you offer any suggestions?

I'm having the same problem

I've recreated the site many times but always the same problem...no navigation. Please help! This is what the code looks like in my Top Navigation after running Site Sculptor.

<div class="art-nav">
<div class="l"></div>
<div class="r"></div>
<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="Top Navigation" --><?php echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'Calendar' , 'Top Navigation'); ?><!-- InstanceEndEditable -->
</div>

There is no mention in there of CSS Menu Writer although I specified in Site Sculptor that that is where the navigation should be placed. All Site Sculptor has done is make it an editable region via the Content Management System. It's as though Site Sculptor just ignored my request to insert the navigation there.

Editable Region Tags

When inserting editable regions, should the editable region tags be inside the DIV container or outside the DIV tags (see below)? While running Site Sculptor (SS), I used two custom templates; one for the home page and the second for the sub pages. The sub page template was originally built from the first template (minus a few DIVs). After SS built the pages, the horizontal nav on the home page was pushed all the way to the left overflowing the outer container while the horizontal nav on all the sub pages was correctly positioned within the menu container (no overflow). When I compared the code view on both the index.php and one of the sub pages, the horizontal nav on the home page only displayed the CSSMenuWriter code for the Nav and was missing its opening and closing DIV tags to the menu container. The sub pages rendered just fine with the opening and closing DIV tags surrounding the CSSMenuWriter code. Do I need to just use one custom template for both the main and sub pages when running site sculptor?

Inside example:

<div id="MainMenu" class="grid_12"><!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="MainMenu" -->Menu Content<!-- TemplateEndEditable --></div>

OR

Outside...

<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="MainMenu" -->
<div id="MainMenu" class="grid_12"></div>
<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

the div should be outside the editable region.

if you have the div inside the editable region, it will not be applied to the child pages, only code that is outside the editable region tags on the template gets applied to the child pages.
