Hey thanks for taking a look. I renabled the control panel but it doesn't seem to work. When you change an option you get:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/diablo/public_html/mugenwars/templates/siteground/setParam.php on line 1
I'm not sure what the problem is.
I was also wondering (kinda unrelated but I'll ask it) how Joomla decides what news item on the frontpage takes up the whole width versus part of the wdith. Going through all the options I could see no variable to specify the position.
Also I have no idea why the previous and next buttons are displayed at the bottom. I confirmed they are present on my FTP server and I reuploaded them to make sure.
Also I had the following message during the Sys Reqs part of the installation and I didn't do anything about it because I didn't know what it was referring to. However I don't think this is the problem because the default template seems to work fine. This was the message.
configuration.php Writable No
You can still continue the installation as the configuration will be displayed at the end, just Copy & Paste this into a new PHP file and upload it to the site root directory.
