Hi all,

I have started building a template and have the basics loaded within a Windows environment using the standard installation process for Silverstripe.

The basic template works and although it is a work in progress, it is starting to take shape.

unfortunately, when I moved the theme to a UNIX platform (dreamhost) the Navigation and Footer files are no longer loaded. I do have the basic layout working but the .ss files are not loaded.

Does anyone have any experience with issue? I have looked through _config.php, the Layout files and the Page.ss files but I cannot see what the issue is.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Justin.

I suspect it is also a bigger problem as I have tried a number of the themes from Silverstripe.org and most of them are none-functioning.

LayoftheLand, Andreas08 are two I have tried to no avail.

Cheers,

Could be a case issue (just guessing since I don't do much windows work these days) Layoftheland vs layoftheland. Make sure your theme names are lowercase, however your 'Includes' and 'Layout' folders need capitals.

Hi,

I tried that option and even checked each of the entries. To make sure it was the same, I checked the Blackcandy theme too and it had the same structure and format.

thanks for the help.

Still no luck!

Here is some of the code...

<body>
<div id="Main">

<div id="Header">
<div id="HeaderLeft">
<img src="/images/chapterlogo.jpg" border="0" WIDTH="120" HEIGHT="120">
</div>

<div id="HeaderMiddle">
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<h2 align="center"> TITLE</h2>
</div>

<div id="HeaderRight">
<img width="120" height="120" src="/images/fmvlogo2.jpg" ALIGN="TOP" border="0">
</div>
</div>

<div id="Navigation">
<% include Navigation %>
</div>

<div class="clear"></div>

<div id="SideBarFinder">
<p align="center"> Lodge Finder </p>
</div>

<div id="SideBarBottom">
<p align="center"> Upcoming Events </p>
</div>

<div id="SideBarAbsBottom">
<p align="center"> Login Screen </p>
</div>

Again, I have checked (to my knowledge) capitalizations and ... what ever else I can see.

What is surprising me is that when I download a theme from this site, copy it up, untar it (tar -xvf), many of them do not work.

My host provider is DREAMHOST if that helps.

Thanks again,

Justin.

Do you have a link to the actual site to check out. Is the html loading but the CSS not? Is the theme being set using SSViewer::set_theme() or via the backend?

Hi,

I have tried both versions of setting the theme in the _config.php files as well as in the backend. At present, it is set in the _config file as well as being default in the admin area.

The following is the URL for the site:
http://www.grandchaptervic.net.au/silverstripe/

The theme is under the /themes/tutorial directory.

Will, thanks for your help. It is greatly appreciated as I am getting to learn by experimentation too!

Cheers,

Justin.

Will,

I hate to ask, but do you have any hints?

Thanks,

Justin.
