Forum OpenACS Q&A: acs-templating hangs
I have been already successful in putting my content and templates to
content-repository (CR) using some crude .tcl files. I finally wanted
to view my stuff. Now I make a www/index.tcl to pull the contents
from CR. It hangs. The webserver does NOT hang but it seems that nothing
is being generated. So browser gets a timeout.
www/index.tcl - code that pulls contents from CR
templates/index.adp - published template from CR. I can hand edit it
anyway. Publish from CR or not its meaningless.
I first investigated to see if pulling the contents from CR is
unsuccessful. Using doc_return on the index.tcl it gives me the
content from CR. So now I am sure that there is no problem with the CR.
I know use an ordinary www/test.tcl and write templates/test.adp.
Still hangs. But www/test.tcl and www/test.adp works.
I use ad_return_template. Why the heck there ad_template_return?
Anyway I have use this style of templating in ACS 3.4.10 for ecommerce
module. I must be doing something wrong. I am really exhausted after
learning how CR works, acs_objects, etc. Its complex... but nice.
Can someone help me finish the final step of my understanding of
CMS/templating/CR .. whatever.
How can I make
templates/<file>.adp and www/<file>.tcl merge without hanging.
