Hi Silverseba,

Ran this again. Now the first time I run the db/build I got the website error but the second time the db/build went successfully. The subsites tab is now visible but when I click on i t, it reports another error.

[Warning] file_get_contents(/home/kidsmc/domains/ [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory
GET /admin/subsites/

Line 472 in /home/kidsmc/domains/

464 }
466 /**
467 * Load the given javascript template with the page.
468 * @param file The template file to load.
469 * @param vars The array of variables to load. These variables are loaded via string search & replace.
470 */
471 function javascriptTemplate($file, $vars, $uniquenessID = null) {
472 $script = file_get_contents(Director::getAbsFile($file));
473 foreach($vars as $k => $v) {
474 $search[] = '$' . $k;
475 $replace[] = str_replace("\\'","'", Convert::raw2js($v));
476 }
477 $script = str_replace($search, $replace, $script);
478 $this->customScript($script, $uniquenessID);

Turned the DEV mode off and the error is not displayed.

As the installation seems to work (the Subsites tables are installed obviously) this error may result from your cache.
Logout from the admin area, clear your browser-cache, restart your browser and call the admin area again. In previous versions of silverstripe that helped me a lot.

Thanks for the support. I have now defined 2 subsites and trying to get it configured.

The Subsite virtual page does not work. The drop down to choose a page to link to comes up with a fatal error as follows:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method TreeDropdownField::tree() in /home/ on line 34

Any suggestions? Has anyone got this fatal error fixed?

Has anyone got a copy of a working Subsite v0.1?

Hi there,

I've got a semi working copy of the subsites module.

I managed to install SS 2.3.6 with genericdataadmin and subsites, the subsites tab is visible in the CMS and i can add subdomains. However, once I want to publish a newly added page in a subdomain, the CMS hangs on "publishing". After refreshing the page isn't published and/or saved.

Can anyone help me with this issue?

@Iain-vdw - I'm still using 2.3.5 but am having the same problem with subsites just hanging when I try to save or publish a new page. Did you ever find the answer?

Since your SilverStripe version is in between and I had the same problem at first, maybe this forum entry helps: Successful installation of Subsites module on SS 2.3.0 (2.3.7 seems feasible)
