Topic: Can't Add News
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"
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
include("cutenews\show_news.php"); <!- also tried with a full path as well didn't work ->
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.
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?
