Builder in Templates

Hi
Trying to use Framebuilder within a template for the first time.
I'm getting blank webpages output when using Framebuilder

1. I set up a webpage which includes a footer included with Framebuilder
which loads OK (template20.php)

2. I converted the page to a template.

3 created a page based on the template but it only loads as a blank page
test20.php

I've also tried creating a theme based on the template
Then created a page based on the theme and this also loads as a blank page
test20a.php

Can't figure out what I',m doing wrong.
Appreciate any help please.
Thanks
Clive

when a page loads blank, it means that a php error is occurring, but error reporting is turned off.

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

php:
<?php

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

Hello Jason
Thanks for the reply.
I've included the diagnostic lines and reloaded the webpage test20.php which gives
some indication of the error.

Warning: require_once(../webassist/framework/framework.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/sites/longbennington.info/public_html/test20.php on line 7

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '../webassist/framework/framework.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear5') in /home/sites/longbennington.info/public_html/test20.php on line 7


I've checked that the webassist folder has been uploaded Lines 7-9 are as follows;

<?php
require_once( "webassist/framework/library.php" );
require_once( "../webassist/framework/framework.php" );
?>

Thanks jason - Resolved

Many thanks Jason

This was really useful. it turns out that the includes addresses had a "../" at the start and they were reported as not found. I've removed it and the page shows.

Thank again
Clive

Hi Jason

I am having a similar problem but I believe it is because I simply do not know how to use this product.

I don't know much about php or includes but I will run the steps I have taken through with you to help identify where I have gone wrong.

1. I have created my index.html page (well really it is a purchased template). I have identified areas which need to be plugins i.e image slider, tabbed panel (for news content) and navigation.
I have also identified the include areas i.e. header, footer, background sidebar.

2. I cut the code (ajax, html and javascript) for each plugin componant from the index.html page and created individual pages for them. So now I have a .php page for my slider, tabbed panels and navigation. Each page includes the relavent links to css, jquery library and javascript code.

3. So back to my index.html i still have the areas I want to use as includes on the page. I convert my page to DWT.

4. This is where I am stumped. Do I need to define editable regions or do I run the framework builder theme wizard straight away? If so how does framework builder no which areas i want as includes and how to divide the page?

When I defined editable regions for main content and sidebar and ran the wizard I came up with a blank page.

I really just need some direction in understanding this. Please if anybody knows how to use this extension any help would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards
Jennifer

Ok just an update

I have managed to gain a foundation understanding on theme building but just have a quick question on plugins.

I have created a slider (jquery) and ajax tabbed panel plugins simply by cutting the code from my initial html template unto new .php pages and saving. I then import the plugins using framework builder. Unfortunately I could not get the plugins to work unless i left the javascript code on the DWT. Is this how it is supposed to work? I thought that the plugins could work independently without having to paste code anywhere?
