Hi,

I installed the extension and did the following:

- activated it
- checked all PHP settings (safe_mode is off and fopen is allowed)
- set my folder to 777 permission
- went into the settings and chose the location of the template for the channel I want to use
- typed in the relative path to the file that I want created (a simple txt file)

When I add/update an entry in my channel, nothing happens…no file.

In my template, I have the following:

{exp:channel:entries channel=“dealers” dynamic=“off” limit=“200” disable=“categories|category_fields|member_data|pagination”}
{title} -
{/exp:channel:entries}

Any thoughts on why I’m not getting a file generated?

Thanks,
Dan

Also, forgot to mention:

- ExpressionEngine 2.4.0
- newest VL File Generator (just downloaded less than an hour ago)

Can you confirm that visiting the URL of your template produces content?

Yup…first thing I did was go directly to the rendered template and see what it outputs…and no problem.

And you are actually submitting the entry and not just hitting Save Revision, right?

Yes…hitting the Submit button.

We haven’t yet removed index.php from our URL structure…does this affect anything with the relative paths?

Can you send credentials to ee [at] viget.com for us to check it out?

You need admin access to EE as well as FTP? Or just EE?

Just EE would be the first step.

For future reference if anyone is having a similar problem, make sure to use the full relative URL to your template.

Example:
If your template is viewable online at site.com/~dev/index.php/path/to/template, the URL in the extension settings would be /~dev/index.php/path/to/template
