Headers and Footers missing with Genshi and Trac 0.11

I've installed Trac in a couple installations and the headers and footers were completely missing. At first I thought it was a fluke, but then a friend of mine independently installed it. You can see a public example of this at http://esp.mit.edu/code/.

I've tried it on a number of different systems, compiling everything from scratch, using debian packages (except for Trac itself). Nothing got the headers to display. I've used the default configuration for 0.11, among other configurations.

Please look into this as it completely renders the majority of the system useless —- as nobody can click onto the other pages on the site.

(P.S. I really loved 0.10. Can't wait for 0.11 to work for me!)

Did you read TracInterfaceCustomization#SiteAppearance?

If you can't find the hints there for fixing your issue, please rather ask on the trac-user MailingList, with all the relevant information included (version of Trac used, plugins (themes?), your site.html file if any, etc.).

There you will find more people able to troubleshoot your installation issues.

If it appears you've actually hit a bug in the Trac behavior, feel free to reopen that ticket.

This has happened on two different systems with two different people configuring Trac — with completely stock installations. Default everything, except for the subversion directory.

I've played around with the site.html for a week and that still doesn't change the fact that the bundled site.html did not work.

This is with Trac 0.11.1 and the latest trac.

What version of Genshi and what OS? This is generally caused by Genshi not processing the theme.html file.

I tried a couple, but the one running on esp right now is Genshi 0.5.1 python 2.5

comment:5 by mike@…, 16 years ago

The OS has varied, from Debian etch, Ubuntu 8.10, RHEL 4, and CentOS 5.

Mike, is #7463 relevant for you?

comment:7 by mike@…, 16 years ago

That looks like it might be it… I know that esp.mit.edu is in the /code/ directory, but it may be an issue with the mod_python setup?

I'll look into this when I get a chance.

Mike, by looking at http://esp.mit.edu/code/ it seems you figured out how to deal with this issue.

It would be nice if you could summarize what went wrong and/or how you fixed it.
