Broken subpages

Visiting your home (or "Introduction") page works great, but trying to visit any subpage shows a blank page or even leads to a server error? Please make sure that you:

  1. Included the (hidden) .htaccess file when uploading / moving the kirbyBOOK files
  2. Updated your RewriteBase setting according to your setup.

If you're running kirbyBOOK at the root of your domain try enabling the RewriteBase in your .htaccess file like so:

RewriteBase /

If you're running kirbyBOOK in a subfolder, make sure to set the RewriteBase according to the name of your subfolder:

RewriteBase /my-subfolder

Broken content after saving

If your site displays the initial demo content just fine but breaks as soon as you try to save your own content changes or your content files (within the /content directory) look broken this might be an issue with a missing PHP extension.

To handle text correctly, kirbyBOOK uses the mbstring extension. While this comes preinstalled with 99% of hosting providers there might be situations where this is missing. Try contacting your hosting provider and kindly ask them to enable that essential extension for you.
