Subject RE: Forrest run works but forrest doesn't
Date Tue, 02 Aug 2005 07:45:29 GMT
I created a new seed site and started from scratch and the problem has
disappeared. I must have broken something with my tinkering previously.
That's the trouble with not really knowing what I am doing. I'm still having
problems with some images not rendering correctly in PDF, and with one
document that won't render in PDF at all, but now at least I have something
to play with.

I now need to figure out where, and how, to edit styles for sdocbook.

Would it be of any help to other beginners for me to document what I have
done that worked? I must admit I found the documentation seemed to assume a
bit more knowledge than I started with. Of course, I could just be leading
myself up the garden path.

Can you please paste the output of a "forrest site". My guess is that this
is a plugin related issue, but I'd rather not speculate without further

Yes, the very first test should be that you are able to seed a fresh project
and run Forrest in both static and dynamic modes without any errors. If that
works, then something specific to your project is causing problems
(, skinconf, validation etc).
