    Migrating CMSMS Site to Silverstripe Link to this post

    Hello,

    I'm migrating an old site from CMS Made Simple to Silverstripe. I installed SS on my local machine using MAMP.

    I found some storage behavior. When I try to create a template, and put the html code from the old site in it, and restart mamp and the try to open the admin interface, I get a blank page that contains only the footer and no way to login.

    If I remove the html code from the old site from the template, everything works normal again.

    Could anybody help me? I'm new to Silverstripe. Many thanks!

    This is what my Page.ss template looks like:

    ...
    <body>
    $Content

    <% include Footer %>

    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    </body>
    <script src="http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js" type="text/javascript">
    </script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    _uacct = "UA-194517-1";
    urchinTracker();
    </script>
    </html>

    Do you have $Form variable in your template? This is where the login form is rendered.

    @Webdoc
    Yes. No change.

    @sonet
    Nope. Thanks for the hint. It sort of works but when I try to login, the form redirects me to the live site instead of the one on my local mamp installation. How can I change that?

    Thanks!
