DW Template and SS

Hi
I am trying to use SS with my own temaplte for the first time.

I create the temaplate.

I Create a new SS Preset using the Preset Manager importing the DW temaplte previews look fine selecting the relevant regions all good.

So click to create and bang.

Lots of Not Found Errors in all the pages.

When you open them in DW the same errors pop up.

The error contains what looks like loads of DIV markup from the pages so much so they more than fill the screen so I cannot even see the full error or any buttons to close the popup boxes.

Any ideas?

Thanks

BTW I am using a 3rd party tool for the CSS Layout. I obviously do not want to mention that on here. It does create 100% Validated CSS.

Thanks

Mike

can you export the preset and send us a copy so we can reproduce the issue.

Hi Jason
Yes please find it attached. I have created a really basic design to allow you to see the error fully.

It only has 3 sections nav, contents, footer still causes SS to generate with errors.

I did not get an error message when using your layout.

however, one thing I do notice is that there is a line added to attach a js/debug_plus.js file, but this file is empty in the layout:
<script type="text/javascript" src="sitesculptor_assets/content/js/debug_plus.js"></script>

sometimes if you use the ctrl+c(command+c for mac) copy keybord command when an error window is open, it will copy the error message to the clip board, perhaps you could copy the error to you message this way?

Or a screen shot showing the error may be helpful.

Thats the error message.

A Screenshot just shows the same thing.

Whenever I try to use the design for a SS site it throws that error up for every page it tries to create and although it does create the pages when I try to open them in DW they all cause DW to throw that error up while opening them.

I have tried using different layouts designs all using the same 3rd party app but when used with SS same erros only the more complex layouts throw a larger piece of code into the error message.

Now confusing as it may be I did try this on another PC with the exported design and like you said no errors.

Yes I can at a push create on one then convert to SS on the other but really not great as the other is a laptop not my workhorse PC.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

Thanks

OK just to add to this odd behaviour. I tested a more complex design by exporting the site template and importing on the other PC and SS completed successfully.

I then allowed the other PC access to open the pages and bingo same erros even though they open fine on the other pc.

Any clues to which extension could be causing this issue?

Thanks

Hi
Any ideas on this? I have tried disabling SS and then opening one of the files and still the missing code error pops up.

Any help would be appreciated.

** update **
I think I have isolated it down to another extension that cannot find the DIVs due to changes made by SS but it does not seem to affect SS use.

So speaking to the other dev to try and find a solution at moment.

Thanks

Mike

Interesting, that would explain why I was not able to reproduce the issue, please keep us posted on what you find out.
