Topic: Can't Add News

Hello,

Im having a problem with cutenews, specifically related to Adding News. Im new to the whole CMS deal so I wanted to give it a try and came across this site.
Basically im using wamp for my local host and i made an empty index.php file just for testing purposes:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<body>
<h1>NEWS</h1>
<?php
include("cutenews\show_news.php"); <!- also tried with a full path as well didn't work ->
?>
</body>
</html>

that's the whole code. Made an appropriate folder 'cutenews' as noted in the readme file in the wamps 'www' directory. Everything installed, admin pw set, logged in, but when I want to add news (filled in topic and text), clicking on the button, nothing happens (just a slight split of a second refresh). So when I go the the local host it does display NEWS and 'Powered by CuteNews' but no news I submitted.
Thanks for all your help!

PS using 1.5.2 version of cutenews and wamp server 2.2 also using win 7 64-bit if that's in anyway relevant.
Another thing when i hover my cursor over the Add News button it displays this link http://localhost/cutenews/index.php if that helps.

Also:
<?php
include("C:\wamp\www\cutenews/show_news.php");
?>
this is done with 'Integration and migration Wizards' and one thing I noticed '/' reversed but I tried all other variations and still no change.
Tried the whole thing on win xp, same setup no luck.
Only thing I haven't tried is uploading it to a server though FTP and seeing people having issues with 'local hosts' could that be the main issue?

Re: Can't Add News

Probably this code include("cutenews\show_news.php") should be written in such a way  include("cutenews/show_news.php")

Please specify:
1. On which platform is there the hosting  IIS/Linux/etc?
2. Check the access rights on the folder cdata
3. Which version of Cutenews do you use?

The information is already provided in the my original post but I dont mind reapeating it.
Also I tried the '/' asI already mentioned but it doesn't work.
1. It's a WAMP server - localhost. It's not running online, it's a localhost. So it runs on my PC which is windows 7 64-bit based. Tried turning IIS on through 'Turn on and off features' even FTP.
2. Can't check those since its on localhost and not on FTP remote server (hope i got this right)
3. I use 1.5.2. version of cutenews.

Edit: Just to add. I've seen couple of 'CuteNews Installation' vids on youtube and I notice how they can fillout the Add News forms and once they click on Add News it says in green letters that it has been submitted. Of course if you don't put your code in your index.php you won't see it on your page. So that problem is something related with this Add News form because I dont get any confirmation regarding the submitting of the news. So adding the the php code at this point doesn't really matter.

Thanks for your help so far.

Re: Can't Add News

Hi guys,

I installed Cutenews 1.5.2. all permissions are green. all changes of options are saved.

I set permission of the folder cdata and its subfolders and files on 777.

But i have never been able to post any news using IE9 in my Windows 7 desktop. if i click at "add news" the window will be refreshed and nothing happends.

I tried anothers Web browser (Safari for exemple), it worked.

Do you have any idea ?

THX for ur help.

I tried IE8 in a Windows XP destop, it didn't work either. It should have some compatibility issues with Internet Explorer (Java Script or PHP ?). Do you have any solution ?

Re: Can't Add News

Hi,

I got exactely the same issue. It occurs when I use Internet Explorer (IE8 and IE9). With other browsers it works.

Do you have sorted it out.

Thanks

Re: Can't Add News

Please specify more detailed information about the bug with the screenshot. the server where the code is represented (Denwer/WAMP/Apache/Nginx/etc...). Also send the files from  cdata/log/error_dump.log. We need to know all the details how your Cutenews is working.

Best regards,

Thank you adsl! Hahahaha  http://cutephp.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif  http://cutephp.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif
I knew it must've been something simple!
Funny thing I uninstalled my 2nd browser 2 weeks prior to testing cutenews so it never crossed my mind I could test it with a different brower.
Wroks great now!
And a thanks to support_team! Finally I can start exploring this script! http://cutephp.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif

*waves*

PS just to note it works with google chrome. NOT working in IE 9 nor IE 8 (in win xp).

Another edit: updated to v153 now works with IE 9. Great stuff!
