How to use $content tag

Recommended Posts

Has anyone worked with the New Pages Contribution in conjunction with STS? The site is just about done and I used the $content tag for the main category template and it works great.


However, I now have general pages such as FAQs, Site Map, etc. I placed the $content tag on the template to pull the content but it is not working. Do I need to have specific PHP code on the page where my content is? Do I need to have specific PHP code on the actual template itself? Otherwise, how does it know where to pull the content from? I have all other pages with the download in the appropriate areas and with what seems to be the appropriate code.


The problem is this...


My template is filed under sts_templates/test/faqs.php.html (this is the template design with a blank table and the $content tag in the table where the content should feed into). There is no current PHP code on this template.


My actual page with content is filed under languages/english/faqs.php (I have only content on this page with some PHP code as downloaded with the New Page Contribution)


The problem is that when I go to the live faqs.php page it does not pull the template. So, it just shows up as a white page with some content.


The PHP code that was already on this page with the download is (I changed the page name to match mine)
