Build a Website Tutorial Troubleshooting
Got stuck while following the Build a Website tutorial? Here are some tips to help you find the problem:
Check the log files for error messages and warnings
You can find the log files in the following directory inside your Hippo CMS project:
Did you publish your document?
If you made changes to a document and don't see the changes in the website, check if you actually published the document.
Did you publish your channel?
If you made changes to a channel through the channel manager but don't see the changes in the website, check if you actually published the channel.
Did you rebuild your project?
If you are tired of rebuilding, try out JRebel.
Are your head contributions working as expected?
If you used head contributions, use your browser's source view or html inspector to verify that the head contributions are actually included, at the right place.
Is your Freemarker syntax correct?
Some Hippo CMS documentation assumes JSP as the templating language used, which has different syntax.
