I have tried to install this a million times when installed Wamp it asked if I wanted to use firefox. This is my default browser. When I got to the install screen of silverstripe that went well. then when it went through the install process I got this error.

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: http://localhost/silverstripe/
Line Number 45, Column 75:               <div id="SilverStripeNavigatorMessage" title='Note: this message won't be shown to your visitors'>Published Site</div>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------^

I am able to view http://localhost/silverstripe/ in Internet Explorer, but once I get into the CMS site I am not able to view any of the icons located within the menu bar. If I hover over them they say what the are.

I need help fixing this please. I have one week to complete a project for my college course and I have to use this program to complete the final assignment.

This is the source code from firefox on the page I get an error.

The XML error looks to be a syntax error in the theme you are using, I have just committed a fix for this. In the mean time though you can get it to work by removing the $SilverStripeNavigator from the theme you are using. It will be in /themes/themeyouareusing/templates/Page.ss

Currently I have the browser set to use IE because of that error. Is there a way in wamp to change it back to use Firefox as the default browser?

That did fix the error in firefox, but I am still not able to view the tool icons within IE

thanks for the help

I had trouble finding that too. Here is the location where I found the file. C:\wamp\www\silverstripe\themes\tutorial\templates/page.ss
