How to modify templates on local server?

#1 Postby erama » Jul 04, 2012 4:53 am

I need edit all templates in my local server, but I can't : error:"invalid license_key".
I want not modify the templates over production server .
I tried emulate the main domain (it has licence) in my local server, but It's the same error. How can I modify and test the new designs of my templates in my local server?

Thanks

you can only test it live :( (so be fast)

key works for domain only where it was uploaded. no chance to create it on another site. you would have to buy another key. I was told like that....for me it was a big problem too. you can test html sites but not the CSS. because css works for all sites!

I know that it's a big problem as you cannot test the layout on another server. you must buy a 2nd license for a test site I think....

Not true randy!

Upload your template under a new folder e.g Templates2, Templates3, Templates4 etc. It must be in this fashion ("Templates" + a number).

Go to your site and at the end of the URL add: /?design=2

Where 2 is the number of the template folder. A cookie will be set for you and only you to use the design. You may switch back by doing design=0.

You can also use this for people who want a different theme on your site.

ok but .css will be activated for all sites even if its a new template!

because css will be used for all sites.

if the new site is red and the old one was yellow and I change the css body background to red the existing site will show red and not the old yellow!

thats the problem

for the next layout I will have to buy a new script just for layout. or admin can offer temporary license key for testdomain...

after that all css and html files will be uploaded to existing site

You can very easily change the location of the CSS for the second template in the main.html file.

open htaccess of public html

check e.g. this line

Code: Select all

RewriteRule    ^tos\.html$               /cgi-bin/index.cgi?op=page&tmpl=tos [L]


add another line next to it for e.g. test.html

Code: Select all

RewriteRule    ^test\.html$               /cgi-bin/index.cgi?op=page&tmpl=test [L]


looks like that then

Code: Select all

RewriteRule    ^tos\.html$               /cgi-bin/index.cgi?op=page&tmpl=tos [L]
RewriteRule    ^test\.html$               /cgi-bin/index.cgi?op=page&tmpl=test [L]


create file in Templates/pages/english

test.html

switch english language and you have it

if you want it for other languages you must upload the html file to other languages too

Thank you randy you've so helpful.
It working now, I found out that its because I've been trying to check the website on development mode which is mywebsite.com?design=2
meanwhile I'm uploading the page on template2/pages
so to fix this I upload the copy into template/pages and it works now.

although I believe this can be set from htaccess pointing on template2 folder but nvm its worked :)
