After a fresh install and several tests of version 1.0.19870.4 I decided to experiment with modifying layouts. I followed the design guide, performed excersize #1 on the “Intro To Layouts” page (link below) which worked fine, and proceeded to excersize #2
Excersize #2 produced the following error:
Undefined variable: toplinks in (domain)/app/design/frontend/default/default/template/page/html/top.links.phtml on line 21
I thought I made a typo along the way so I backed out my changes to the 3 files changed (page.xml, catalogsearch.xml, header.xml) by copying the originals of these files to their appropriate folders and retested to ensure that demo pages once again loaded without error.
I’ve now gone through 3 iterations of refreshing the files, following the excersize TO THE LETTER, and each time the above error is reported.
Before posting this problem I searched Magento forums and the web for anything related to problems with this excersize and found nothing in regards to version 1.0.19870.4. However, I did find a post where it was indicated thta the excersize was going to updated to reflect changes in a prior version.
Is this excersize still broken? If not, any ideas of what I’m missing? Again, I followed the excersize TO THE LETTER… 3 TIMES!
Thanks, in advance.
