Power CMS Inline Editing

I have added PowerCMS to a site I am building, but the inline editing does not work.
I notice that when logged in, the Edit Tag (the one with the CSS Class “cms-edit-icon”) above the editable text does not have any styling applied.

The css file is there

I am guessing there is a path problem somewhere, but I am not seeing anything in the console window

Thanks

on the home page, you are adding the CMS content using a plugin, but you are commenting the line to write the plugin head content:
<?php //echo((isset($WA_row2_1393250057737))?$WA_row2_1393250057737->Head:"") ?>

by commenting that line you are preventing the inline editing script and other resources from being written to the page.

i uncommented that line to fix the problem.

This is an issue I have when using plugins in conjunction with pages created with bootstrap framework.

I am commenting out the 'include' for the plugin page head sections, otherwise the javascript library gets loaded twice and causes a conflict.

I am doing it this way because I want the plugin page to work in its own right. as well as when it is 'plugged-in'.

Thanks for finding the cause of the problem.

I now see it is the line

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

immediately after the opening <head> tag which is causing me the problem.

As an aside, I there a reason this line is in the head section and not before the <!doctype html> ??

Yes, it is in the head section because it writes the needed javascript for the inline editing to the page. the script needs to be in the head section of the page.
