Re: Comment Modules

I’m trying to follow the tutorial and I have reached the setting up the pages portion and this is where I am running into trouble. The way I read it is that I am supposed to change the archive and default pages with the code that is in the pages folder of the zip file I have downloaded.

The version of textpattern that I am using for this tutorial is 4.81 (much different than the one in the tutorial) and the pages included in the 4.81 version are archive, default, error_default. I replaced the code in the archive and default pages with the code in the zip file, and since there is no home page, I added the code from the zip file into a new home page. I then went back to the sections page and changed the default page to point to the home page, the blog page to point to the archive page and left the rest of them to point to the default page.

What is displayed after all that is the three links and nothing else except the footer. I have done this twice with the same result. Could one of you refer to the tutorial and show/tell me where I went wrong? Thanks.

Re: Comment Modules

Apologies. Yes that tutorial is quite old but i think it should work for helping one understand 4.8.1

all the templates sources that i know of are for older versions of TxP. Perhaps others may know of other templates.

NOTE: now that i think about it how does one output our Textpattern site as code for its various Sections Forms Pages Styles ??

Hi Bici, Indeed it is cryptic. You click on “Themes” and there is a drop down menu with links.

It worked on Safari versions 13.1.1 and 12.1.1 for me. Are you sure that you do not have a plugin messing it up?
