Hmmm. weird..

Just installed the blog (last daily build) on SS 2.2.2 , no problems...

Maybe it is something in your (hosting) setup ?

I'm having the same "bad class to singleton()" problem as JonathanParker, getting the same traceback, but slightly different debug info. The error is below.

I am also new to SilverStripe. I downloaded the both the CMS and the Blog today so I have the latest "released" versions. One difference is that I am not installing over the tutorial, just the startup blackcandy theme. I am using a my windows machine as the server, using "localhost". The machine is running older versions of apache (2.0.55), mysql (5.0.18 win32), and Php (5.1.2.2).

I wonder if we have anything in common?

Got past this error. I will submit this bug and fix. Here is what to do.
1) Change line one of BlogEntry.php from:

<?


to:

<?php

2) Change line one of BlogHolder.php from:

<?


to:

<?php

When I made those changes, the database was successfully modified and the blog menu appeared. Unfortunately, clicking on the "blog" in the webpage now brings up:

XML Parsing Error: junk after document element
Location: http://localhost/silverstripe/blog/
Line Number 4, Column 1:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
^


While I have not had a chance to look into this XML problem yet, I suspect the cause might be very similar....but it is late here and I am going to call it a night. If someone finds a fix to this second problem, please post it.

Hi Dennis, It has been some time since I've had this problem and I should have really posted the solution at the time I found it so this is from memory:
The root of my problem was that I did not have PHP 'short tags' enabled within my WAMP 2.0 install and some of the php files within SS were using short tags i.e. <? code ?> as apposed to <?php code ?>.
What I suggest is that you check the offending source code files to see if any start with the short tag (<?) and replace it with (<?php )
You could also check to see if php short tags is enabled in your local install. If not then enable it and see if that cures the problem. If it does then you will need to check the source files as I have said above.
I opted for changing offending source files as I could not enable short tags on my live production server.

Hope this helps Dennis if you need any further assistance then please e-mail me jonathan@dabnis.com

Regards.

Jonathan

Looks like you've spotted the root of this problem, I'll see that this is patched in the main code base.

This error was caused by something different On line 118 in BBCodeParser.php, there appears the following line:

Debug::message($this->content);


If I comment out this line, the error goes away and the module appears to work. I don't know if this is just a stray debug message left in the code, or if commenting out this line is going to cause other problems down the line....(keeping fingers crossed!)

Hi,

I ran into the same error having installed silverstripe 2.2.2 and the blog module ( v0.1) - I followed Jonathan's advice above and went into the WAMP server PHP settings and enabled the following setting:

PHP > PHP settings > "short open tag"

I then ran http://localhost/silverstripe-v2.2.2/db/build?flush=1 and this time the blog module install ran without errors.

Also used the fix from civilis.biz above (thanks!) for the XML error. Depending on where you installed, BBCodeParser.php is located somewhere like this :

..\silverstripe-v2.2.2\sapphire\parsers\

change the line :

      Debug::message($this->content);
to

      /*Debug::message($this->content);*/
