New Pages

I am new to CMS and I have uploaded the site and I can access the login page, but none of the other pages will appear.

admin

When I click on the insert page, it does not give me the correct path to the page. It leaves out the "CMS" portion of the page. Where do I correct this error.
If I insert "CMS" in the path I am directed to the Insert page.

Help

Hiya Ron,

The problem seems to be in part that your CMS folder isn't sitting in the root folder of your site, but in your 'test_site30/CMS/' folder.

Try moving your CMS folder to the root folder of your site and testing server as defined in your site definitions.

If necessary, create a new site in Dreamweaver. If your files are in CMS folder in your new site, you may find the information here useful:

Sounds like a path problem - what did you in the WA_Globals file?

Existing Site Changes.

Thanks I will try " reconstructing" my site on my localhost, and see if I can correct the issure. I set the strcuture up to look like the pictures in the instruction. Is there any code in any of the files other than the ones in the instruction that need to be altered.

Also, on another note. Can this CMS recongize existing pages, or do you have to add the 3 lines of code to every page of an existing site.

Got a chance to reconstrute the site and it did work locally. But I recieved this error on the page. Any ideal:
Warning: virtual() [function.virtual]: Unable to include '/CSSMenuWriter/cssmw_content/menu.php' - request execution failed in C:\wamp\www\test_site\aboutus.php on line 64

This is the code from those lines.

<div id="outerWrapper">
<div id="header">Header</div>
<div id="topNavigation">
<?php virtual("/CSSMenuWriter/cssmw_content/menu.php"); ?>
</div>

Hi Ron,

In your site definition, you may have set the links to be relative to site root rather than document.

See Jason's reply in this thread . That will sort you out nicely.

----------------------

You will need to add the CMS lines of code (the two at the top, and a line wherever you want an editable region) on each page you want included in the CMS.

No - existing pages are not recognized. You add the three lines of code to any page that will display the CMS page contents. I just converted my site this past week. I just move the content to the CMS system from each page and then deleted the old content and added the three lines of code. Worked nicely.............feel free to look - I am still working on it but I don't mind people looking.... you can get my URL from my profile

Thanks Every one

Shadow: I looked at your site// I am going to try to do that. My work is cut out for me. I have a site with a least 100 page. What would happen to my pages if I put the first to lines of code in my templete then added the third as needed.???

As long as your 100 pages are in the same level of the hierarchy - i.e all in the root directory, or all one folder deep (different directories would be ok), that should be fine. Otherwise you could make more than on template, i.e one for the root directory pages, one for second level directory pages etc.

Thanks! It is a work in progress, but I am happy with it so far. Also - I've had SOME problems with using a template - I found that it is easier to do a blank page based on the template and then detach THAT page from the template and use it to create new pages. I have not figured out the cause problem since my first page was based on a template and did not have the problem (my problem was the text from the CMS would not display on a new page based on the same template) - could be something that I am doing. Doing a mixture of static and CMS pages should not cause a problem . Having the first two line of inserted code on a static page should not cause a problem either. Once your pages are in the CMS, it is so easy to edit and make changes without worrrying about formatting issues and so on. Just do them at your own speed and you won't have any problems.......and you can ask questions as needed.
