editing templates

posts: 79 United States

When I try to edit a template in tikiwiki and click on save I get this error:
<b>Only one top level element is allowed in an XML document. Error processing resource 'http://webnet.corp.ptd.net/~travisr/tiki2/tiki-edit_templates.php'. Line 2, Position 2

Can anyone help me understand how to fix it.

That unfortunately tells us nothing, except your using Internet Explorer.

So the best thing to do is to look in the Apache Error logs for a clue, or use Firefox which will show a proper error message instead of XML junk.

ok, after the error message displays on the screen I get this message:

Warning: fopen(templates/tiki-top_bar.tpl): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/netman/travisr/public_html/tikilight_1.8.4/tiki-edit_templates.php on line 45

You need to set the properties for the file (or full TEMPLATES directory) to 7-7-7 in order to allow write-access. See Step #5 for details.
