Can't get any of the PHP commands to work.
I've always used XAMPP but couldn't get it to work with this so I switched to WAMP so maybe I have a setting turned off?
<?php echo "Hello world"; ?>
If that doesn't work, then WAMP is not interpreting the PHP. My guess is that it may be a problem with the WAMP setup (i.e. php files not in the right directory, "servers" not running, etc.)
The code that shows in the source is
<?php $a = new Area('Main Content 2');$a->display($c);?>
Forgive me if you've already done this. But if you haven't, it's helpful to check out Andrew Embler's "how to" video:
Be sure you're walking through all the steps correctly--I've botched themes before and had to review it. Although this video isn't made using 5.5 or higher, themes built this way should still function properly.
<?php echo $this->getThemePath()?>
And in order to get the header to work I had to have the footer added into it also.
Not sure if this is the proper way but it's the only way I got to work for me now..
