Armadillo help please


(Clay Gilliland) #1

Hello, I am very new to RW so please forgive my ignorance. My wife likes to blog so I thought I’d make her a website of her very own. I have built a website for our rental properties with RW and that went fine. Now I’m trying to get hers going, but for the life of me I can’t get Armadillo to work. I have watched a youtube video from NimbleHost on how to set it up. I create a stacks page, drop Armadillo into it, enter the database info in the inspector (which I believe is correct) and publish as the instructions say to. When I visit the site, all I get is the generic filler text. It does not show me a link to the admin setup. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thank you in advance.

There should be a separate login stack that came with armadillo. Did you put that on the page?


(Clay Gilliland) #3

I did not. The video did not show that, but it looked like an older version.

Just tried that and I get the same thing. The web address is below.

Yes, There are 2 parts to set up. First is in RW… Then you need to click on the link and set up Armadillo through their portal…

I can’t seem to get to the part where I can finish the set up in their portal. Would not having the database credentials correct cause this not to work?

Well, I just refreshed my page and its there, Now I see that’s where you were. Thank you all for the help, I promise I not always this stupid.

So do you see what I posted when you go to her website? Yes, it could be incorrect info… if you can’t log in with the user name and password. It’s been awhile since I used Armadillo, so I don’t remember exactly.

Have you looked at these?

Sorry, was typing more answers when you came in and said everything was ok. Yes, refresh always helps and also clearing cache as well, when you make changes to your website.
