Hello everybody, I just started using Kirby and I’m still confused regarding certain aspects. I have a limited knowledge of coding and an even more limited knowledge of Kirby, so excuse me if the questions I ask are very banal or difficult to understand.
I am starting to build a simple website (just text and links, a few pages) and I’m encountering, among others, the following problems:
1– the localhost:8888 link doesn’t seem to work: as soon as i change the directory (from “localhost:8888/kirby-project” to, say, “localhost:8888/sonia” the browser shows me this message: “This page is currently offline due to an unexpected error. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and will fix it as soon as possible.” Is there anything wrong with MAMP? It seems to be up and running…
2– i made new folders, but just as for the main page, none of them seems to work. when i click on any of the links i made for the new pages firefox tells me that “The address wasn’t understood. Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (localhost) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context. You might need to install other software to open this address.” Which is weird, because the kirby-project works perfectly.
3– i made a .html file for the page and i linked it to the assets/css/index.css file and it works, but only when I open my .html page in the browser, since I can’t access my page via localhost:8888.
More generally: as I understand, I have to start building my website starting from the kirby-project structure. But my website is much more simple than that, and I have the feeling that if I start messing up with the original kirby-project structure it will not work (in fact it isn’t). Could anybody guide me step by step to set up a structure that works?
Thank you in advance,
