    Default home page text and footer do not show on home page

    I cannot seem to get my main page text to show up. It is defined in the Define Pages Editor, but will not show on my home page. Also my footer isn't showing on the home page only, but shows on every other page. I have tried copying over some of my files with fresh copies but to no avail. I have search the forum and the web in general but can't seem to find a post that specifically addresses this issue. Any help would be very welcome.

    My site is candcclogs.com.

    Thanks in advance!

    You have a php syntax error in your language files. Probably in your index.php.

    There's more help on this in this FAQ Entry.

    Your page is failing right before the greeting loads. If you edited that, it's likely you made a mistake.

    Thank you. Is that in the tpl_index_default.php file?

    Default Re: home page text and footer do not show on home page

    Ok I found the text in the languages/english/index.php file. I copied the file over with a fresh copy. I still don't have a footer on the home page, nor do I have a footer on any other page.

    Should I just copy a whole new file set over? this shouldn't effect any template overrides I've done, correct?

    Provided you have used overrides correctly for all your changes you shouldn't lose anything. However, that's a lot of work for, most likely, zero benefit.

    The problem is going to be in what you have changed, so that's where you need to look.

    How did you get on with the debug tool in the FAQ Entry to which I directed you? That should be giving you the file and line number where your problem is occurring.

    Default Re: home page text and footer do not show on home page

    I used the debug tool to pinpoint the errors, and tried copying over the files with errors from a fresh fileset, since that should remove any changes I had made. Still no footer! I thinking I'll just upgrade now to 1.3.9 and hope it fixes my issues. The store isn't launched yet, so there isn't much to lose. I tried a fresh install of 1.3.9 first, but couldn't get it to install properly so I installed 1.3.8 instead.

    This same thing is happening to the Privacy Policy page for one of my sites, after the upgrade to 1.3.9 (a few months back), and not sure how long it has been like this. I also tried completely deleting the language "html include" file for that page and just uploading a blank one, no avail.

    The page still shows with only the top of the theme, no content, and no footer.

    I will try the debug tool also, but if anyone else has a suggestion, would be great.
