PARTIALLY RESOLVED THROUGH TRIAL AND ERROR!
I'm getting through the learning curve pretty well and am enjoying the Oasis template for a family and local history site. The sandbox is at http://migration.tnhillbillie.net/
The biggest hurdle I'm facing right now is that some content is not displaying.
For example, if you click on the first item in the "Newest Content" module on my front page (view early queries), it takes you to a blank page. I checked the article content -- it had been migrated using the JUpgradePro component -- and it is present. However, even the page source appears blank. See http://migration.tnhillbillie.net/index.php/research-assistance/networking/41-queries/42-early-queries-posted-to-this-site
I thought at first it was because the links were hosed because the item ID's carried over from J1.5/6/7 were in the paths. But, other links in that listing work just fine.
That may not be a template-specific issue (I've been doing too much WordPress where templates can break everything), but I hope someone can help me resolve this issue. It's the only thing preventing me from bringing my site back on-line after nearly 6 months' down.
And, I have other sites to convert. For that reason, I'm extremely grateful to Shape5 support...RESOLVED ISSUES:UPDATE: I fixed the problems with gray pages and with the Live Search's not working correctly. The problem was the BlueGroup template was set as default, but it was not assigned to any menu items. The Oasis template was assigned to every menu item.
When I click on articles from the Newest Content and Popular Content modules on the front page (using the default Joomla "Latest News" and "Most Read" modules), the phrase header-menu
is inserted into the path.UPDATE: I went into the database tables and did a search for the phrase header-menu. It was set as a funky default for something, and it was assigned to some of the content somehow. I don't know how that happened, but now I know what to look for if links don't work.
Also, I suddenly can no longer view the template positions by clicking on the little preview icon in the Template Manager. The path is http://migration.tnhillbillie.net/index.php?tp=1&templateStyle=10UPDATE: See above.
