Hi,
I'm a new user of Couch. And I working on a mac with MAMP.
I followed correctly the tutorial but I cannot managed to make appear my pages in the couch interface.
I've tried several different pages on different browsser (Chrome, firefox and safari).
Does anyone have an idea where is the problem?

thanks
Hi,

Are you sure you visited your templates in your browser while being logged in as the super-admin? This step is necessary for the templates to be picked up by Couch.

If you are sure about it, can you post in the template code that you are using?
Yes I'm correctly logged with my super-admin account

here is the code:
Code: Select all
<?php require_once( 'couch/cms.php' ); ?>
<cms:template title='About Us' />

<?php COUCH::invoke(); ?>
Hi,

I tried out the template and everything is working fine for me.

This is really strange and I'd like to investigate it further.
Had you not been on local host, I would have done this by logging in myself.
Since that will not be possible, I can only shoot in the dark.
Can you let me know that when you access the template, what is the output you get?

thanks
The output?
On the Couch interface nothing happens, I just have the message "no templates are beeing managed by this CMS"
I've also tried with another database and the issue still persist

thanks
I meant the output you get when you execute the template in browser e.g. if the template was 'about.php', the output on running 'http://www.yoursite.com/about.php' (being logged in as super-admin).
Does it show you the HTML ok? Any errors?
interresting, I have "page not found"
Therein lies the problem.
The template needs to be executed once by the super-admin for Couch to pick it up.

As to why the page is not being found by your web server in MAMP stack, we'll need to troubleshoot it.
Couch has nothing to do with the problem as it has not even been invoked yet.

Once again, since you are on your localhost, unfortunately it is only you who can troubleshoot your web server.
OK, let us try this once again-

Go to your admin panel (http://www.yoursite.com/couch/)
If already logged in, logout.
Login as the super-admin (the account you created while installing couch).
The admin panel should say 'No templates managed'. That is ok.
Open another tab (or another instance) of the same browser.
Now access your template (e.g. http://www.yoursite.com/about.php).

Please let me know what you get.

Thanks.
Great it works now. (I made nothing more special than before)

thanks very much and have a nice week end
