[Pro] EE Tags / EE Action Suite

Hello,

We are just starting using the EE Action Suite with FWPro and EE Core.

We’ve successfully installed EE Core on MAMP and have got a basic FW Template running.

BUT the tags are not working - all we see is a page that looks right but shows the field labels within the curly brackets - repeated by the number of entries in EE - instead of the data itself.

Its like EE knows it has to fill the information and by the number of times but instead of populating the right info its just repeating the fieldnames instead??

I guess we have something not right!

Help will be gratefully received.

I’ve never used MAMP but I presume that methode works the same as if EE and the FW site run on an extarnal server? For what I read in your post is that indeed the exp:entries tag seem to work (EE repeats the number of entries) but that there is maybe a typo in the fieldname? Do these fields belong to the weblog you want to show? Did you assign a fieldgroup and status group to that weblog? It’s a bit tricky, these parameters.

You guessed it a small typo in the fieldname.

I feel so bad for even posting this now.

/MAMP works well BTW

Please don’t…:wink:
I’ll try MAMP after the summar. Curious also how to transfer the database settings to the MYSQL on the server for the live site. I suppose one makes a database dump in a certain fileformat and have it imported?

Transferring from one MySQL db to another is easy. You do an export from one, which creates a text file, and then you import that into the new one. IIRC, I’ve done this with the phpmyadmin that I had on each server, and it was relatively easy. It can also be done with the MySSQL command line, which is, well, a command line.

Also, using MAMP can be just like using Apache, PHP and MySQL on a “normal” *nix box, because underneath it all, Macs are *nix. Did you know that “Web Sharing” on any Mac OS X computer is Apache?

No, I didn’t. I ‘know’ phpmyadmin from the server of my ISP, I guess it’s like making a back-up? (export the tables)

Yeah, it’s actually a good practice to export the tables and contents any time you’re going to do something that might mess things up. It’s also useful to see how the db is set up, as the export is simply a text file.

One of my favorite tricks is to use phpMyAdmin’s Operations tab to duplicate an entire table into a backup copy. Then you don’t have to download any text files, just delete the original table (after you’ve messed it up beyond repair) and rename the copy to go back. It takes less than a second, except on really large tables, since nothing actually moves on the server – the longest time is waiting for the table to quiet down before making a filesystem copy of the data file.
