I'm having the exact same problem. Anybody have any clues as to whether this is permission problem or something?

I do hate to be a pain, but it seems a few people have had this problem and I don't think I've seen a single post where it has been rectified. Am I just being dumb (there is always that chance :D) or has no solution yet been found to this problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers one and all.

I had the blog working perfectly on my local machine, uploaded to the production site and poof! ... no more blog. In my case, I found there was an issue with bbcode. I added this to my _config.php file:

BlogEntry::allow_wysiwyg_editing();

Then it started working again. I'm not sure if that might meet your needs, but thought I would share anyway.

Good luck!

I hope it does work, I've not been getting a huge amount of help on the problem.

Where abouts in the code should I insert the statement?

Hi-

I gave you an incomplete answer... so let's try this instead (sorry for any confusion)!

According to the boards here, the blog module is sometimes having an issue with certain servers, especially when going Live (just what everyone wants!), so I've found this combination to work well:

Try this first:
1. Adjust the BlogEntry.ss file in your /<theme>_blog/templates/Layout folder where it says <p>$Content.Parse(BBCodeParser)</p>. Change this line to:

<p>$ParsedContent</p>

Then flush the cache and reload...

If that doesn't work, then try removing the bbcode calls:

1. Gather the latest blog module build tarball from [url=http://dailybuilds.silverstripe.com/modules-tarballs/]Daily Builds[/url] so you can set up wysiwyg editing.

2. Put this in your _config.php file:

BlogEntry::allow_wysiwyg_editing();

3. Adjust the BlogEntry.ss file in your themes folder as described above. You should also remove the <p> tags. Be sure (again) to flush the cache.

Let us know how that works out for you. Hope it helps!

Hi-

Glad to hear it worked out for you. Which variation did you end up using?
