Greetings. I have become interested in the use of the job templates function in WebMo 10. Especially, due to some of the powerful commands I learned were possible through this site: http://chemistry.ncssm.edu/webmo/help/template_help.html.

However, when I select the template function it leads me to an error page which states:

"Firefox can't find the file at <server>/cgi-bin/webmo/edit_templates.cgi."

Is this an install error that occurred on my initial install and has propagated through each update, or is this something simpler.

Two points:

First, the online editing of job templates is a feature of WebMO Pro, and not implemented in the freeware version. In fact, the link to edit templates does not (or should not!) show up in this version, because the code does not exist. Can you let me know where you selected the template function?

Second, although the ONLINE editing of templates is not implemented in the freeware version, it is still possible to edit the job templates (just a text file) via the command line. They are stored in the <cgi-bin>/webmo/interfaces/*.tmpl files, one corresponding to each computational engine. The file format is self-evident, but simply backup a copy before you make any changes!
