I gave Typesetter CMS a try ... but it started not so great:
After successfully installing Typesetter (installation page checked everything green) I entered the default home page and was greeted with the following:
Seems as if something went wrong with the SCSS compiling to CSS. Can some one explain? I "did nothing wrong", just what I was told on the documentation page on how to install Typesetter.
Note: I installed it in a subdirectory (/typesetter/).
Hoping for help!
Seems as if something went wrong with the SCSS compiling to CSS.
Definitely. From the error messages it appears that Typesetter fails to import the Bootstrap 3 SCSS sources from /typesetter/include/thirdparty/Bootstrap3/scss
Both the missing mixin and the variable are defined there.
Since you don't get other errors like memory exhaustion, I would assume that these files are actually missing. Please check the abovementioned folder on your server and compare it with the one from the installation ZIP. If there are files missing or file sizes don't match, maybe sth. went wrong with the file transfer (FTP, SFTP, whatever you used). In such cases other files may also be missing.
Unlikely but possible: sometimes extracting the installer ZIP archive to a local Disk or LAN subdirectory with an already extremely long path may exceed the max local path length of the OS (=~ 256 characters NTFS, Ext3 and Ext4). However, you should have been notified then. This happens to me from time to time when archiving projects on my NAS
If all files are ok on your server, we'll have to check other possible causes.
Alright, you put me on the right track, I found out what was going wrong:
I used WinSCP to upload the unzipped content. In WinSCP for my normal workflow I have a file transfer profile that omits everything with "scss" and "sass" and does not upload it. So the SCSS files never reached the server in the first place. *facepalm*
I now unzipped the archive directly on the server and everything works as it should.
So my bad, sorry for disturbing. ;)
Looking forward to explore Typesetter CMS!
