Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to can't find but am being told to use ns_startcontent

You said "However, when I attempt to apply it, the line: ns_startcontent -type $content_type trips up and brings down the entire application. "

Does that mean that AOLserve crashes, dumps core, etc? Or just that you get an error? What is the error?

You need to give some more information here ...
