TOPIC: XML Parsing Error after adding a position

XML Parsing Error after adding a position 01 Oct 2012 04:20 #1149

Hi everyone,

I've got a problem after downloading and installing my first module but I think it should be an easy one for you all.
I added a position in order to have a simple slideshow module running with this site. Below is what I did.

in index.php

<div class="slideshow"></div>

was added before the menu position since I wanted it to be above the main menu.
So the code looks like so:
-------------------------
<div class="header">
<div class="header-left">
<h1 class="logo"><a href="index.php" title="<?php echo $title; ?>"><span><?php echo $title; ?></span></a></h1></div>

<div class="header-right">
<?php if (CountModules($document, 'breadcrumb')) echo Post(null, Modules($document, 'breadcrumb'));?>
<div class="topmenu"></div>
</div>
<div class="cleared"></div>
<div class="slideshow"></div>
</div>
<div id="menu_bg"><div id="horiz-menu" class="nav"><?php echo $main_navigation;?></div></div>
-------------------------

in templateDetails.xml

A line <position>slideshow</position> was added below position user3.
-------------------------
<positions>
<position>breadcrumb</position>
<position>right</position>
<position>banner</position>
<position>user1</position>
<position>user2</position>
<position>user3</position>
<position>slideshow</position>
<position>user4</position>
<position>footer</position>
<position>copyright</position>
<position>syndicate</position>
</positions>
-------------------------

Everything seems to work fine but whenever I enter the Template manager page, I see "XML Parsing Error at 105:1. Error 5: Invalid document end" on top of all the templates. Also, when I save after editing the HTML file, I'll see :XML Parsing Error at 103:11. Error 5: Invalid document end" twice as well as the file is saved successfully message.

I don't know where and how I can fix this problem. Please kindly give me a hand on this. Your help will be highly appreciated.

The site is at 140.136.187.3/joomla15/.

Could you try to restore old xml file? We don't need add position to xml. You can use directly this position in Module manager.

Yes, it works!

It was from joomla and joomlart I learned how to add positions.

Both of them indicating adding position tag in XML file.

Thank you very much!
Wish you a nice day!
