Not working on Linux

I tried this module and it works like a charm on Windows server.

But when I moved my test site to Linux server it does not work.

I managed to get the cms pages to display properly but I am not able to get the admin side from where we manage pages to work properly.

What to do?

getTreeViewData function

Hi,great extension.I would be grateful if you could explain what is happening inside getTreeViewData function in TreeMenu class,it is used to convert a flat array of nodes into nested one.For example I have yet to grasp what the position array does or the lastitem variable.It would be very helpful to me if you could very briefely outline the logic you use to build the nested array of nodes.Thanks in advance.

Update: Problem with errorhandler

Sorry, had a mistake ...

The function run can look like this:

public function run($actionID)
        $page = Cms::model()->find('url=:url',array(':url'=>$actionID));
        if ($page)

You don't need to always add the "pageRoute" in the url field when creating pages.

Problem with errorhandler

I have tested your cms and it seems to be very usefull for me, thanks :-) But I have a problem with your way to activate your CmsHandler by installing your errorhandler. I have changed your code to a more "serios" way, so you don't need the errorhandler.

  1. Register your CmsHandler in config/main.php with a path "content"
  'controllerMap' => array(

Changes in your CmsHandler.php 2. Add a public property

public $pageRoute = 'content';
  1. Override the function run from CController
public function run($actionID)
        $page = Cms::model()->find('url=:url',
                                       array(':url'=>$this-  >pageRoute.'/'.$actionID));
        if ($page)

That's all.

You don't need the functions "handle()" and "initCms()" in your controller and registering your errorhandler any more.


When creating or calling pages you always have to use the prefix "content/..." in the url. Maybe this "pageRoute" can be set automatically when saving the url of the page or generating menus ...

Looks not bad

Looks not bad, I thisnk it will partially used in my project. Но все равно, сыровато немного выглядит. На CMS немного не тянет. Способность к расширяемости практически нулевая.
