How Numo Components Are Rendered

Numo “components” are pre-programmed widgets which get displayed in-page when specific “component code” is rendered when a web page is viewed live on your web server.

Component code is a string of characters which can be copied into your web page, either in code, or in design/visual mode.  An example would be:

[NUMO.ACCOUNTS: LOGIN BOX]

That particular piece of component code tells the system to look within the “accounts” module, for the “login box” component.

When the page is viewed either without the system installed, or on your local computer, just that bit of text is displayed in page: [NUMO.ACCOUNTS: LOGIN BOX]

However, when the page is viewed on a server running the Numo system properly installed, the system takes that string of characters (what we call, the “component code”) and replaces it with the actual component.

The beauty of this mechanism is that you don’t have to know HTML in most cases to paste the code in your page (it is helpful, mind you, to know a little HTML in order to place it in the right place), and it is also very difficult to distort the code (which could cause errors) as it is a simple string of characters.

So, if you come across a page with that component code still visible, it means that the numo system isn’t active or fully deployed.  To troubleshoot this, check the following:

  • that when you go to www.yoursite.com/numo that you get the admin “login” box
  • check to make sure that you have the check.php, and .htaccess files within the root (main) folder of your website

If both of those criteria are satisfied, then that would be reason to contact our support department.
