Staticpages - can't post

I have a freshly installed site. Everything seems working fine except the Staticpages. When I click on 'New Page' to launch the editor, I got a 'Not found' error. No error was post on the error.log so I am having no clue.

I have also tried with the original 'professional' template, got the same error.

What could cause such error?

Hmm, do you have url_rewriting enabled? Not sure why, but for some people the static pages editor doesn't work in that case.

Thanks, Dirk, that takes care of it. This is the first GL site I built on a Plesk box that I got recently. I have discovered that Plesk makes it very hard for developing php driven sites that require placing part of the codes below the web root and definitly not very Geeklog friendly.

For years I have been using CPanel, and setting up a Geeklog site takes minutes with CPanel. Now I suspect that some of the complaints we get here might be from those who use Plesk.

Is there a work around for us to still use the url-rewrite?

Bye, Sam

I guess the proper way would be to remove support for url_rewrite from the static pages editor - it doesn't make a lot of sense there anyway, as that is not a URL that you want to have indexed.

Someone please submit a bug report (or a patch ...).

I will submit a bug report, but I don't know what is causing the problem; Plesk, or Geeklog's static pages itself? Since it is not a problem on CPanel boxes.

I don't know either. But instead of trying to find that out, I'd suggest we simply remove that feature as it serves no purpose anyway ...

It seems it has something to do with this Apache directive mentioned
here

However, I am not apache literate enough to understand where I should put this directive.

Interesting. I didn't know Apache had such an option.

However, if it were turned off, then URL rewriting wouldn't work at all, not only in the static pages editor.

I was wondering why you keep telling me to turn the feature off, and not to find the solution. Now I noticed you mentioned that "it serves no purpose anyway..." That's something new to me. I always thought it serves to be search engine, or Google, friendly. No longer?

Then, I don't have to worry about it. Thanks!

What I meant is that it serves no purpose for the URL for the editor, as that is never indexed anyway.

URL rewriting as such is a useful feature, just not in that particular instance.

I'm have similar issues with static pages and url-rewrite. How can url_rewrite support be remove from static pages?

The bug is already fixed by Dirk and the new file is in the CVS.

I think I found the answer to the problem! Big Celebration

It spits out an error, but it still works and only the Admin sees the error. Not pretty, but could be worse and all seems well. Feel to test the site to make sure.
