Editing .layout files creates problems
Author Dale on 03-17-2003 at 21:27 (EST)
We have encountered a problem whenever we edit one of the .layout templates. Once edited, when it is used in ustorekeeper, the following is displayed at the top left corner of any of the "created on a fly" pages:

BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" TEXT="#000000" >

Next, if we go back to using the original .layout file, it works fine. Has anyone else seen this problem? Our catalog link is www.fretnfiddle.com/cgi-bin/ustorekeeper.pl

We've seen this before - it happens when you edit the template and accidentally mess up the < > around the BODY parameter.

Before you edit it, it should look like this:

<BODY

<USTOREKEEPER TAG: BACKGROUND IMAGE>
<USTOREKEEPER TAG: BACKGROUND COLOR>
<USTOREKEEPER TAG: TEXT COLOR>

>

But you will get the error that you are seeing if you accidentally do this

<BODY>

<USTOREKEEPER TAG: BACKGROUND IMAGE>
<USTOREKEEPER TAG: BACKGROUND COLOR>
<USTOREKEEPER TAG: TEXT COLOR>

...note that the > was placed beside the BODY tag, but before the USTOREKEEPER TAGs. This is causing the problem that you are seeing.

What we suggest is to start over with the example.layout file that comes with the zip file, and be careful not to close the BODY tag and leave the USTOREKEEPER tags outside.
