Unable to get Cumulus Toolbox to work.

Postby ksatkus » Tue Jan 01, 2013 8:27 pm

Greetings,

This is my first post. I am new to the Davis Products and Cumulus. I have been trying to get Toolbox to work but no luck. I cannot get any of the PHP tags to show up so I can get a rule. I think I have set up correctly but clearly not. I am attaching some of the setup screens.

Any help would be appreciated.

I just checked my Toolbox setup, and I have the full path the cumluswebtags.php file in that dialog - worth a try?

Hi,

I started messing around and changed the directory settings. It is creating the TXTTMP file. Is it supposed to create the PHP file too? I had one that some how was created yesterday and I copied it into a new directory and the webtags now show in Toolbox.

I guess my question is this: Is the cumuluswebtags.php supposed to be created each time as the TXTTMP is created?

Kevin, I just re-installed Toolbox and also had problems getting Toolbox to recognize my webtag template - I use the '.tpl' extension for the unprocessed template and the '.php' extension once the template has been processed.

So, to get the Toolbox to recognize my webtag template I use the complete path, name and extension, such as:

Code: Select all

W:\processed\cumuluswebtags.tpl
Then, I restarted Toolbox and the webtag template was available.

Thanks everyone, I finally pieced it all together!
