Hi all, I just upgraded my very old website from version 1.1.1 of CMS Made Simple to version 2.2.8.

I did it step by step and now the admin site is working. Unfortunately, my website shows an empty page. There is a head, by the body is completely empty. I think my template is not working anymore. Can someone help me and tell my what is wrong with this template?

I would very much appreciate the help!

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

<__html xmlns="" xml:lang="nl" lang="nl">
{* Change lang="en" to the language of your site *}


<title>{sitename} - {title}</title>
{* The sitename is changed in Site Admin/Global settings. {title} is the name of each page *}

{* Don't remove this! Metadata is entered in Site Admin/Global settings. *}

{* This is how all the stylesheets attached to this template are linked to *}

{cms_selflink dir="start" rellink=1}
{cms_selflink dir="prev" rellink=1}
{cms_selflink dir="next" rellink=1}
{* Relational links for interconnections between pages, good for accessibility and Search Engine Optmization *}

<__script__ type="text/JavaScript">
//pass min and max -measured against window width
function P7_MinMaxW(a,b){
	var nw="auto",w=document.documentElement.clientWidth;
	if(w>=b){nw=b+"px";}if(w<=a){nw=a+"px";}return nw;
<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<style type="text/css">
#pagewrapper {width:expression(P7_MinMaxW(720,950));}
#container {height: 1%;}
{* The min and max page width for Internet Explorer is set here. For other browsers it's in the stylesheet "Layout: Top menu + 2 columns" *}

<!--[if IE]>
<__script__ type="text/javascript" src="modules/MenuManager/CSSMenu.js"></__script>
{* The above JavaScript is required for CSSMenu to work in IE *}



 <__script__ language="JavaScript">
   x = parseInt(Math.random() * 4 + 1);
   document.write('<div id="pagewrapper" style="background: #F3FECA url(uploads/images/{menu_text}'+x+'.jpg) no-repeat; background-position: top right;">');

    {* start accessibility skip links *}
    <ul class="accessibility">
      <li>{anchor anchor='menu_vert' title='Skip to navigation' accesskey='n' text='Skip to navigation'}</li>
      <li>{anchor anchor='main' title='Skip to content' accesskey='s' text='Skip to content'}</li>
    {* end accessibility skip links *}

    <hr class="accessibility" />
    {* Horizontal ruler that is hidden for visual browsers by CSS *}

   {* Start Header, with logo image that links to the default start page. Logo image is changed in the stylesheet  "For template: Left menu + 1 column" *}
   <div id="header">

          <h1 class="pagename">{title}</h1>
   <hr class="accessibility" />
   {* End Header *}

      {* Start Navigation *}
      <div id="menu_vert">
         <h2 class="accessibility">Navigation</h2>
         {menu template='cssmenu.tpl'}
      <hr class="accessibility" />
      {* End Navigation *}

   {* Start Search 
   <div id="search">
    End Search *}

   {* Start Content (Navigation and Content columns) *}
   <div id="content">

      {* Start Content Area *}
      <div id="main">
         {* <div style="float: right;">{print showbutton=true script=true}</div> *}
         {* <h2>{title}</h2> *}
         {content} <br />

      <hr class="accessibility" />
	  {* End Content Area *}
   {* End Content *}

   {* Start Footer. Edit the footer in the Global Content Block called "footer" *}

Just use process of elimination. Comment out the 3 or 4 Smarty tags in the body one at a time and see if it works. Newer versions of Smarty are more sensitive to case and template names, it's usually something like that.

That said, it's probably the {menu} call, I'm guessing the template no longer has the .tpl extension in the name, if it exists at all.

Yes, all answers are helping very much. I'm seeing something now! Now I think something is wrong in the menu template. Can you please look at this? I believe $depth is never getting bigger than 0.

Code: Select all

{* cssmenu *}
{* this template uses recursion, but not a smarty function. *}
  node: contains the current node.
  aclass: is used to build a string containing class names given to the a tag if one is used
  liclass: is used to build a string containing class names given to the li tag.
{if !isset($depth)}{$depth=0}{/if}

{if $depth == 0}
<div id="menuwrapper">
<ul id="primary-nav">
<ul class="unli">

{foreach $nodes as $node}
  {* setup classes for the anchor and list item *}

  {* the first child gets a special class *}
  {if $node@first && $node@total > 1}{$liclass[]='first_child'}{/if}

  {* the last child gets a special class *}
  {if $node@last && $node@total > 1}{$liclass[]='last_child'}{/if}

  {if $node->current}
    {* this is the current page *}
  {if $node->has_children}
    {* this is a parent page *}
  {if $node->parent}
    {* this is a parent of the current page *}

  {* build the menu item from the node *}
  {if $node->type == 'sectionheader'}
    <li class='{implode(' ',$liclass)}'><a{if count($aclass) > 0} class="{implode(' ',$aclass)}"{/if}><span class="sectionheader">{$node->menutext}</span></a>
      {if isset($node->children)}
        {include file=$smarty.template nodes=$node->children}
  {else if $node->type == 'separator'}
    <li style="list-style-type: none;"><hr class="menu_separator"/></li>
    {* regular item *}
    <li class="{implode(' ',$liclass)}">
      <a{if count($aclass) > 0} class="{implode(' ',$aclass)}"{/if} href="{$node->url}"{if $node->target ne ""} target="{$node->target}"{/if}><span>{$node->menutext}</span></a>
      {if isset($node->children)}
        {include file=$smarty.template nodes=$node->children}

{if $depth == 0}
<div class="clearb"></div>
</div>{* menuwrapper *}

Ok, depth is not the problem. It is not getting into the {foreach $nodes as $node}. Why?

Rather than spending time troubleshooting MenuManager, which has been deprecated, perhaps just switch to Navigator? Start with one of the default templates and roll your own if needed.
