Login fields aren't showing up with site/admin (header, footer and interface show), and forum posts with solutions are pointing to directories and files that this site does not have. I'm fresh to SS and although this site needs to be rebuilt, I'm wondering if there is a fix for now. Site structure is very different than what I've seen in other SS directories. Any SS Ninja help is very appreciated.

Sounds like your template is missing the $Form hook.

Rhym ... I'm searching to find the file where I can verify that $Form hook. Other posts say "MySite/config.php" but this old site doesn't have a "MySite" folder.

Probably themes/<active_theme>/templates/Layout/Page.ss

Looking at your screenshot though, it doesn't much look like a silverstripe installation at all. If the code is circumvented that heavily... well the issue could be coming from anywhere (in all that custom code).

Actually... from re-examining your screenshot... this doesn't appear to be a silverstripe install at all :< (unless it's all contained under the cms subdir)
Do you have a version number to help us help you?

I'm with Pyromanik on this one. Just had a sneaky peak at the html and the site looks like a very old DW site made with editable templates. Your directory structure looks wrong for an SS site and is missing some important folders for sure.

Good luck!

Hi Whitmer,

you're really sure this is a silverstripe site? Wappalizer says it's a DreamWeaver site and all links in menu go to php pages. Though mod_rewrite seems to grab any request, even adding /foo-admin (without trailing slash) works... at least i get a 200 response

Thank you all, for your eyes. Here's 2 screenshots of the cms sub directory. Since I'm a SS rookie, I wasn't sure if it was a very old SS site. I don't know how to verify the version number if it's a SS site.

Whitmar,
