How to start after finished Installation?
  • Hi all,
    after i thought that the fuelcms based on codeigniter is just another CMS like all the others e.g. Typo3 or Joomla, i installed it and now i´m stucked after logging into my admin account.
    Now i´ve read here a lot about the fuelcms and that it is just "a little" different from all the others. ;)

    I´ve already worked with Codeigniter and wrote some simplier own modules to get a formular working with a database.
    I decided to use the fuelcms because i love the Codeigniter Framework for its flexibility and wanted to test the CMS funtions to get a little better handling to work with a WebUI and not with files.

    1. Question:
    I´m now logged into my admin account, how can i start creating my website?
    I´ve added a new pages and set it as following:
    ##############################
    Location: home
    Layout: main

    Header
    Page title: Home

    Body
    Heading: Willkommen
    Body:
    Herzlich Willkommen
    Wir bauen gerade um.
    Bis später.
    ##############################
    I published the site but when i click on view i got the default site "Welcome to Fuel CMS......".
    https://freakylabs.de/cms/home

    I don´t find helpful documentation on how to start my website.

    2. Question:
    Are there some Skins to use like in other CMS?

    Thanks for help!

    Best regards,
    Darkentik
  • Assuming you've followed the installation instructions about enabling the CMS in ./config/my_fuel.php, then the other usual gotcha is to remove the ./views/home.php file - the the installation's hard-coded home page.
  • There are no "skins" as such. I usually use Bootstrap by loading the CSS in the header block and coding my HTML to suit.
    Of course, there are Bootstrap themes available which is useful - but I usually end up recoding my pages to suit the theme too.

Howdy, Stranger!
