I'm a new CMSimple user that I'm discovering and testing. A real pleasure
With the study of the documentations and the help of these forums, I manage to understand and get results but of course I have a lot of questions as you can imagine. Lol!
My first tests made me break the site and I know it will happen again before I master the CMS. So my first question is...
Is there a way to reinstall it cleanly without deleting files and folders and emptying the database, which would avoid having to reinstall the modules and themes already in the system?
Sorry for my english. I'm French
with some fear I ask to myself, what the hell that guy wants to do with CMSimple?
I hope, you have backups of the folders content/ and userfiles/.
You can try to use the update:
https://www.cmsimple.org/en/?Downloads_ ... __CMSimple
That is a full CMSimple without content-, config- and languagefiles, simply copy it over the installation.
If the problem is in the content, try the backups restore function, in admin menu on top:
Settings => Backup
This guy wants to make a portal to gather a lot of his pages already online with a CMS without database.
He especially wants to replace his usual CMS of choice (pluxml.org) which, for subtle reasons, doesn't suit him anymore.
Too late my friend, too lateI hope, you have backups of the folders content/ and userfiles/.
For the update, this is a new installation with CMSimple 5.3 so no need to update.
Note that I did two installations.
1) Via Softaculous directly from the hosting company
2) Direct download from the cmsimple.org website
I notice that, although in 5.3, the two archives are different because the one via Softaculous doesn't have the directories ./2site2lang ./2site and ./2author
In short, they are different and I must admit that the new user is a bit confused when he studies the documentation. :-//
Then came the crash but I'm waiting to reproduce it before coming here to talk about it.
Now I reload the whole thing and see what happens.
You also can use the Update for a damaged installation, but mostly that is not the reason for problems.
Better use the original source from cmsimple.org,
Ok !Mieux vaut utiliser la source originale de cmsimple.org
My problem (at the moment) is that the wave3cols template makes me pages inopportunely and finally erases all my content without me asking for anything.
Any idea about this?
Question: To remove a Plugin. Do we delete its folder?
I'm currently translating a lang file into french; at the moment it's working.
When it's finished, I'll put the fr.php file in download for all.
On the other hand, when I test a new CMS, I usually edit a tutorial that I use to list tips and ways of doing things for future beginners. A kind of "how to" what.
I will put it online this afternoon as soon as I've finished the translation in French and will propose the link here.
That is one option, but you also can deactivate it by pluginmanager. Just click in the admin menu direct on "plugins" and have a look.
You can activate the templateswitcher again now, that was not the reason for the trouble
