Bulding Plugins

Hi, maybe someone can assist me here. Probably something really easy but I've missed it like a real tube.

For example, when I build a CMS from the wizard and then apply said build CMS via Framework builder, how to I keep the plugin in place with the theme instead of redirecting to an un-themed version? I know you're looking for people to use it more like this, so is there some form of tutorials you have somewhere that I could see?

Thanks :)

Edit - Found what it was. It doesn't play nice with HTML5. When trying to add a template to pages that have been created, an error appears saying that it doesn't have editable regions outside the html tags. Would this be classed as a bug?

I don't think it has anything to do with html5. It may have something to do with other settings in your template.

Is there any way you could email me the template you are trying to use so I can reproduce the issue (ray@webassist.com).

I'm assuming you just run the wizard and try to apply that template. That will allow me to determine if it is a bug or not and get it fixed or provide a better explanation.

Hi, thanks for having a look at this. I've just sent that to you so should be with you in a minute.

I just assumed it was the HTML5 because when I converted it to xhtml, it seemed to work.

Edit - Noticed I called you Rob in my email, sorry for that :)

I think I found a solution to it. It seems to be something with the HTML5 template I'm using. It started off as the HTML5 boilerplate and only changes that were made were to the paths of the javascript and added some css files too.

Anyhoo... when I convert it from HTML5 to XHTML transitional and then back to HTML5 again, it seems to be fine and works like it should.

The difference is I think either Dreamweaver or DataAssist needs the <html> to be as is and the files I use have <html class='no-js' lang='en'> attached to them. One of the two doesn't like that, I think maybe Dreamweaver as it then will add an additional <html> and keep the <html class='no-js' lang='en'> too.

You sent me two templates... which one were you using?

Both are built from the same start files so either of them would do. I'm using the Admin one at the moment and integrating the CMS option as a blog.

I see though that <html> must be added at the head so I have:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<!--[if lt IE 7]> <html lang="en" class="no-js ie6 oldie"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 7]> <html lang="en" class="no-js ie7 oldie"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 8]> <html lang="en" class="no-js ie8 oldie"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if gt IE 8]><!-->
<html class='no-js' lang='en'>
<!--<![endif]-->

<html>

I don't see any issues with the template file that would cause problems.... in fact when I saved the file to my site it worked when I tried to use it without making updates. Maybe simply using Save As caused dreamweaver to correct whatever wasn't working.

Anyway it doesn't appear to be a bug with Data Bridge more of a quirk with Dreamweaver of some sort, but it appears you have a work around either way. Thanks for the update.
