I want to add links from one content page to other content pages. I want an entire series of content pages to use the same links. I initially tried using a server side include in the description, but it did not work. I then set up a template (contentrel), and when viewing the template table, the links appear. I went to the content page, and added contentrel to the template line. However, the content page does not seem to add the template. What am I missing?

Yeah, I know.. the content page is not working very well for me. I don't know.. like I have 4 successful content page in use but when i created my fifth content page that has exactly the same attributes how the previous ones were done, they do not appear. It says, "record not found". I have all the links and page created. I'm not sure what's causing this but Im still in the process of looking at it.

Support had the answer to this one: When you are adding the content under admin, and you are using a template that you created, the template field needs to be filled out as "db=yourtemplatename" (without the quotation marks). Otherwise, it looks for a file name. I would never have figured this out on my own. Thanks, support!

Nope, this did not resolved my problem. Like I said, I had 4 successful content links. I just replicate what I did with the 5th one but it says "record not found".

I don't understand how come that my 4 other content page works and the 5th one did not. The setup though is very similar. Thanks!

I had to use db=yourfilename.htm. Did not know I needed the extension.

I uploaded the content file to a new server, and had the same problems you are describing with "file not found". Look at the "hide" column in the content database -- this needs to be set 0 (zero), not null.

I also found that if I set the alignment on the table to "right" and not "center", the template file was not called. Not certain why, but it was an easy fix once I figured it out.
