How do you create a new project?2 users found helpful
Login Using your concrete5.org credentials.
It is easy to upload themes and add-ons from your desktop so you don't Need a project page to have everything function ( I actually prefer downloading archives of all my purchases for ease of customizing )
I have the same question. My account works as Adreco mentioned above, but my friend's account doesn't create Project even he is connected to the Community... and there seems no other way to add a Project.
Connecting you project through dashboard places your project in your projects page on the Concrete website.
When you click 'project page' in the dashboard will only see the one project you connected with, however at the top of the project section (on Concrete) is the link that says 'Projects'.
Click on that and you should see your 'Projects' on another page.
hope that helped.
I have access to two separate concrete accounts. One works. The other one doesn't work. I'm wondering about hosting issue, because that's the only difference between two.
I had a different problem about connecting to community yesterday, and that was answered through this forum, switching browser from Firefox to Chrome. However, this problem doesn't fix by switching browser.
Why have you got two accounts with concrete?
Could there a conflict and are you connecting to the right account at the right time with right project.
If you see what I mean?
Try using just one account with concrete, move everything into the one account.
I had two once and I got myself confused so deleted one.
BTW. Never had a problem connecting with any of my browsers and tend switch between Five.
I have cloned a site and even after editing it's name on the dashboard it still shows under the original site (although it's on a diferent subdomain/url)
I want to connect my site to the concrete 5 community but to do so it says I have to log in as an owner of the project. Well since this project doesn't exist yet this is kind of impossible.
This is what the dialog on my site tells me:
"This site needs to be reconnected to the concrete5 community. This typically occurs because the site's base URL has changed. You must enter the username and password of a valid concrete5.org account. This user account must be associated with the project as an owner or developer."
It's a catch 22. I can't create the project because I can't connect to the community and I can't connect to the community because I can't create the project.
Surely there is a better way to do this.
If your project is based off cloning another, Julia pointed out to me the tip on editing your DB.
This worked like a charm for me :)
From within my site's dashboard, I (supposedly) have successfully connected my site to the Community. From within my Concrete5 account profile, I (supposedly) don't have anything connected to the Community.
There was never an opportunity to choose to create a project when I made the connection, and it doesn't appear as though it happened automatically either.
I don't have any projects, and I can't create any projects. I have a few free add-on's that I can't install because of this, and I won't be purchasing any until I can around this roadblock.
I watched the video about connecting/project creation that was presented at the time of checkout, and things didn't happen that way for me. Could this be because my site is still running on ver. 188.8.131.52?
General info--the project page is created when you connect the site to the community. If you have copied another site as a starting point, you will need to purge the marketplace token from the database and reconnect to the community or else the community will think the original and the copy are the same site.
I can'tt get the website to connect to the community and via my account in the community I can't add a new project. This way I can't add functionality, can anyone help with this? the website:http://www.colosseusvixion.nl
You have not connected any sites to the concrete5 community.
I do not see anywhere that it says connect a site to the community or anything. I'm kind of confused as to where I should be looking as there seems to be three menus(one in light blue across the top, a concrete5 menu and a sidebar...help?
Dashboard -> Extend Concrete5 -> Connect to community. It's really that easy.
