White page after adding item to navigation bar

Postby ANobbe » Mon Sep 03, 2007 11:46 am


i tried to add an navigation item to the navigation bar via the journal setup step 5. But after
trying to add it as internal link (index.php?journal=ibis&page=search&op=authors wrong, i guess ?) the system only shows
a white page. Is there any possibility to fix this problem ?

The problem seems to be the not existing handler for the internal link ? But how could i remove the faulty link ? And
how do i create a correct link to the author information page ?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Alexander,

A white page typically indicates a PHP error. Check your error log, or set php.ini's display_errors directive to E_ALL. Then restart your web server and try again. If you don't have access to your php.ini (i.e. you're on a shared host), modify index.php to include:

Code: Select all

ini_set('display_errors', E_ALL);
