I have an unusual and intermittent error with the blog module. Frequently I will select the blog page and it will be completely blank, as in, nothing at all, just a white page. It happens quite often, and I have tried several versions of the blog, and removed all the widgets to try and solve the issue.
View your php error logs? Do you have any errors? Do you have a 'die()' in your code or project anywhere (do a search on the project for die()). Blank pages dont just happen so theres bound to be an error somewhere
I am very interested to know if anyone actually has SilverStripe running without any errors with the Gallery, Forum, Blog and Ecommerce Modules. If so, what versions of each are you running and what is your server setup?
I really really want to use SilverStripe, but I've never had so many troubles with any CMS...
Thanks for the reponse WillR, you seem to be the only one on this forum who actively helps others, its appreciated mate.
Hopefully with the new Unit Testing framework and as we slowly but surely write tests for each of the modules we wont have as many issues with modules / core. We now in the office have a BuildBot that just sits here next to me running all the code / checking for fatal errors so hopefully this and unit testing together will help!
Also we only have 14 or so developers but there are hundreds of people using SilverStripe. We can only test/ fix so much. Feel free to submit bug reports - we usually never have time for much testing so user testing with forum / blog during the rc process from the community is much welcomed!!
That Dev Mode is handy, I have the following in the header:
Debug (line 118 of BBCodeParser.php): Congratulations, the SilverStripe blog module has been successfully installed. This blog entry can be safely deleted. You can configure aspects of your blog (such as the widgets displayed in the sidebar) in <a href="admin">the CMS</a>.
