When I put <! – InstanceBeginEditable name = ”_ Menu” ->in the area you intend to edit the index.html file or other file on dreamweaver , can no longer necklace <! – InstanceEndEditable -> not replace or delete anything.
You can change < – InstanceBeginEditable name = ”_ Menu” – > by <! – InicioAreaEditavel name = ”_ Menu” -> and <! – InstanceEndEditable – > by <! – FimAreaEditavel ->
Is it urgent
no. use it like this <! – AreaBeginavel name = ”_ Menu” -> and <! – AreaEndavel -> and make sure you added these to the config.php
Can you send me a new config, a correct config, because i don´t work with php and I work with dreamweaver
Open config.php in notepad
define('EDITABLE_REGION_TAGS_START','<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="%s" -->,<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="%s" -->');
define('EDITABLE_REGION_TAGS_END','<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->,<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->');
define('EDITABLE_REGION_TAGS_START','<!-- InicioBeginEditable name="%s" -->,<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="%s" -->');
define('EDITABLE_REGION_TAGS_END','<!-- InicioEndEditable -->,<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->');
<!-- InicioBeginEditable name="_menu" --> and <!-- InicioEndEditable -->
I have recently purchased the flatcms package. But i am having issues using it on a windows machine running xampp. I have updated all my html pages with the required tags but i get the following error when i sign in to the index.php.
There are no files found with the tags <!- TemplateBeginEditable name=”%s” -> or <!- InstanceBeginEditable name=”%s” ->.
Can you please help or direct me toward a cause of this so i can check.
Like stated on the item details tab – I will NOT give support to free hosting services or a local host setup since I cannot solve then any path problems if they occur. -
Did you use the demo ? If not sent me your index.php else upload all files to a server and install again
Ok. I will upload the site to a server and see how it goes. thanks
als ik het goed heb is dit CMS de opvolger van het vroegere MiniCMS? Ik heb MiniCMS vroeger regelmatig gebruikt voor kleine projecten en was er tevreden over.
Is installatie, configuratie, enz nog steeds gelijkaardig en gebruik vergelijkbaar? Wordt FlatCMS verder ontwikkeld en ondersteund in de toekomst?
Yes, it has been called minicms before, still same installation, license key is gone, new look and better wysiwyg. This cms will be maintained in the future
Can I do so? http://i9.pixs.ru/storage/2/3/4/2016122511_5397552_24549234.jpg (hover element > edit > redirect admin)
Nope, not possible
in the future there will be such an opportunity?
Can I do so?
div style=”background: url(<!- InstanceBeginEditable name=”Background” ->../images/pic01.jpg);<!- InstanceEndEditable ->”> /div
Sorry, also not possible
is there a solution for buying a version which I can customize (name, logo, remove copyright) and use it for all my clients?
Not through me. However you can contact the envato support team and ask there for a special price
hi, 2 questions: can the CMS be integrated as whitelabel, with own logo etc? And is it PHP 7.0 proof, has this been tested already? thx
First question read post above, second yes php 7.0 tested
thanks Caesar, about first issue, I mean all links and references to FlatCMS can be left away, after install? (done by myself of course)
Sorry not possible with the current license model on envato
hi Caesar, I contacted Envato concerning the exact license model.
Question was if I could buy a license for use in one customer project, and remove the name and logo that are visible in the browser, respecting further copyright in code etc. (and using the license in one project only)
They answered this is generally fine, but the author decides.
Could you please confirm? Thanks.
Then I agree also
Hi Ceasar. I’m trying to install flatcms via mamp to sandbox a new website. When I go to: http://localhost:8888/home/admin/index.php I get a “not found on this server” message.
May I please ask your help on how I can sandbox properly on mamp. (happy to provide my support purchase code on another channel) Thanks.
Like described on the item details tab, I will NOT give support to free hosting services or a local host setup since I cannot solve then any path problems if they occur.
So how do you suggest to sandbox website builds with FlatCMS. Has this been put to consideration at all?
Flatcms doesn’t need a sandbox. Just prepare your html files and upload it to your server. Then at last install flatcms.
At home I installed flatcms to my production server on windows. You only need apache. So it works locally.
Before I buy (looks good so far) I just want to be 100% certain that a page such as http://petawawapsb.ca/aboutUs.php can be easily modified to work within your CMS
If I’m reading this correctly, all I’d need to do is wrap editable areas with their own ID. Is that correct, or are there other things that need to be done, or possibly conflicts?
yes, but your source code is really bad, so there could be some little problems. I cannot tell you if that will occur.
Hello! Is not working for me
I can share my user credentials if you need it.
I change the text with flatcms but nothing happens.
I don’t know what your are loading with ajax, so I really need more info. By reading the source I cannot tell what’s wrong. Also I don’t know what text you changed.
Else it could be a caching problem, try to empty you’re browsers cache
Hallo! Ik heb alles kunnen installeren, maar hij vind de pagina’s niet. Kan ik jou wat screenshots sturen?
Met vriendelijke groet,
Heeft niet zo veel zin denk ik maar je kunt het proberen. Ik neem aan dat je de default settingen hebt laten staan ? maw niet aangepast de Editable region tags.
Verder hoop ik niet dat je dit locaal probeert maar op een life server (locaal geef ik geen ondersteuning voor).
Ander kun je altijd url en ftp gegevens sturen.
Contact kun je op nemen via het contact formulier op mijn contact pagina hier.
Heey, ik heb het geinstalleerd, maar krijg geen duidelijke weergave. Ik krijg alleen het woord “Pages”. Terwijl dit systeem op andere sites prima werkt.
Without any more info, how should I help you ?
I see in demo the li items and ul entire are loaded. This is confusing for non-tectr customers. Can you just have the li content show – so instead of:
have just About?
That would be to difficult, and is not the way this cms works
Hey first of all awesome script. I ran into a little problem. Anytime an user copy pastes something from a document that’s formatted, it will overwrite all tags.
E.g. I have a
How can just copy paste text without any style or tag changes? The enduser won’t know what’s the different between different tags and styles and won’t be able to memorize everything. :cry: :cry:
That s a problem with all wysiwyg editors, that s why I always tell my clients to first copy to notepath. The used wysiwyg editor I used in flatcms is TINYMCE, go to there website, where you can find all the settings so you can change some if you want.
first of all thanks for flatcms. It is exactly the CMS I need and installation went smoothly.
However I have one problem with it: The CMS ist installed correctly and works, I can login and edit pages. But after some time not using it, app. 2 weeks, i try to enter and after a long time loading no content displays only the header pages.
Reinstalling helped but I can’t reinstall it every other week.
I hope you have some advice
That’s really strange, never heard of that. Sorry no I really don’t have an answer.
Try another server and look if the same problem occurs, or look in the error logs of youre account , perhaps you will find some answers there.
Please add Character Count Feature to Title and Description and maybe Word Count Feature to editable HTML Text Areas.
I would be interested in the “PHP Include” method. If possible please advice me.
I will look into the character count, php include wil not be added
Is this suitable to build very large websites, with 100000+ pages? I wonder if the interfaces and logic could handle e.g. 100k pages.
This is for simple normal websites only, for large websites there are other solutions i think
What means “simple normal websites only”?
Which other solution do you think of? I would love to see that you make your clean solution for large scale also
I don’t have any solution, use worpress or another cms for large websites.
This a cms if you have some static html pages.
I have used WordPress before. It gets super slow after a few thousand pages. I did 50k pages WP and it sucks even with high performance nginx, caching, etc because it is bloated.
This is WHY I am looking for some solution like yours (minimalistic requirements, no database, static loading speed).
I think if you only enhance the Interface of the admin a little bit more to enable mass search / edit (like Angular JS filter etc) it could be made scalable – at least if you think that the rest of the script can scale, too.
I see big potiential in your FlatCMS. Hope to see it scale in some near future
I won’t do that, perhaps you can find a programmer who is willing to make something for you
It’s a pity. So can you tell me, how many pages would be a limit with your solution as it is?
Thanks for answering all my questions btw!
I don’t know, never tested that, and like I told you before this is for small html websites only.
HTML websites does not mean small. This are two different things. I saw HTML Websites that were made out of thounsands of HTML files without any problem and best loading speed.
Your solution seemed to be an ideal solution to manage content afterwards (after page generation / publishing). Only thing missing seems scalability. Otherwise it would seem very suitable. I like the minimalistic implementation.
If you want a number I think max 20 to 30 pages, else the scanning will take to long, (memory problems), and the admin interface isn’t optimized for to many pages
This is actually a shocking reality thanks for your honest feedback and pointing me towards seeing clearer in this. I like the principle of your system a lot, just for my usecase it seems not ready yet. OK.
I have installed the files, added the code to my page and edited some text in the editor, everything looks good BUT, it locks out my html on the page for everything below the instance. I can not add, delete copy or paste or even remove the instance code.. what is happening here?
I don’t know what you mean. live example ?
using the word “instance” in the code locks the code down in dreamweaver. both in the html and config.php : InstanceBeginEditable i changed Instance to something else in the tag and php and now it is ok
when the code locks, i can not delete, copy, paste or anything at all for ALL the code below where the instance is placed. in dreamweaver
ik kocht al enkele licenties van je CMS, en ben er ook tevreden over.
Een klant die werkt op mac meldt me nu wel dat hij een probleem heeft met de metatag description: na input en saven is deze niet zichtbaar binnen het CMS (wel in de source code vd pagina zelf), zowel met Chrome als Firefox. (dit probleem doet zich niet voor op windows pc)
Is dit een bekend bugje, waarvoor een fix bestaat? Mocht dat het geval zijn, kan je aub aangeven welk bestand te overschrijven, zodat niet de hele admin folder hoeft te worden vervangen (en opnieuw geconfigureerd)?
Alvast bedankt & gr,
There is no bug reported like the one you described or I cannot reproduce this.
To update replace all files in the dir admin except config.php
hello Cesar, it looks like there is indeed a problem with the filling of the 3 metatags (title, description, keywords) while using a special character or accent (like ’, é, à etc). Mac + Win, please test this yourself eg. in Firefox.
The special character is not shown right (neither in code), keyword tags containing special characters are saved but not shown in the CMS, and cannot be deleted.
Maybe it’s a minor thing or bug and can be solved quickly, but I’m actually having a French writing customer who is having repeated trouble with this.
Thanks for quick consideration,
I found the problem, fixed it and uploaded the new version. You will receive an email when it is approved
thanks for fast reply Cesar, I will download and test as soon as I get the approval mail. I can overwrite all files, except for the config.php to bring it up to date?
only admin/index.php has been updated
thanks again, do I understand well that I have to await another mail (approval by Envato?) before I download the latest version?
Is approved just now
Cesar, already downloaded, overwritten the index.php + tested:
- again possible to write and save words with accents in the 3 metatag fields
- a sole accent however (as bureau d’entreprise) cannot be saved (is saved as bureau dentreprise)
- in the page source code all accents in the metatags are shown as <?> (not within the content), not recognized in the charset? May be issue for SEO.
Hope this can be solved too, to get if perfect.
small addendum: replacing é with equivalent é does not help either (and would also be too difficult for the average customer)
Works perfectly in the demo. http://www.flatcms.nl/admin/index.php?page=page_edit&filename=demo.html®ion=content
Added d’entreprise in the title at the end.
You have to write it in the admin and the save it. Are you sure you use the right utf-8 charset in your files ?
thx for reply Cesar, demo unfortunately cannot be used for testing, because saving is not possible there (goes wrong here after re-opening).
After several tests, this is the result:
- all tags can be filled and saved now (is ok)
- title tag: if I type word with accent or its html equivalent, it is saved, however on top of the browser and in the page code it shows as <?>
- description tag: idem
- keyword tag: idem, but saving a sole accent is never possible
Could you please test this and give feedback?
All website pages use utf-8 charset allright, would not know what to do else.
On all pages I have added special chars in the demo , also the keywords, it works.
Are you sure you have the latest version ? And did you check in a notepad if your html files are correctly utf-8 converted (without the bom) ?
Also can you try this ?
change on line 2168
<input tabindex="1" type="text" id="title" name="title" value="' . $properties['title'] . '" class="form-control input_text">
<input tabindex="1" type="text" id="title" name="title" value="' . html_entity_decode($properties['title'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8') . '" class="form-control input_text">
hi Cesar, thanks for all efforts. I followed your advice and installed the latest version (with configuration put at utf-8, I’m unsure it was defined like that before). The metatag tests (saving words with accents) are now succesful, happy with that. The only issue left is the saving of a sole ’ (d’entreprise): does not work here, idea why? Could your previous post be helpful for this?
sorry, forgot to add: saving an ’ does work within title tag, but not within description and keywords tag
Do the same for the other fields
<input tabindex="3" type="text" id="description" name="description" value="' . html_entity_decode($properties[description], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8') . '" class="form-control input_text">
<input tabindex="2" type="text" id="keywords" name="keywords" value="' . html_entity_decode($properties[keywords], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8') . '" class="form-control input_text">
Cesar, did that, unfortunately does not help, stll unable to save an ’, only issue left I think
Cesar, losing too much time with trial and error, so I agreed with customer to skip the tags within CMS, and publish them by ftp. If you would be sure about the cause I can always test. Thanks.
Thank you Ceasar for new update. Rgards
I am working for someone who has a flatcms website. He has given me his username and password. When I open the admin page, I get the areas that can be changed, but I cannot add pages or access his info@... email account. What do I need to do to have this access? Thank you.
You need admin rights, ask the one who has the flatcms
