Affected files:

  • What steps could someone else take to reproduce the issue you’re having?

Check if you have an unclosed tag or extra closing tag somewhere around that {{#match}}{{/match}}.

an orphaned {{#if ...}} with no closing, or a {{/if}} with no opening (or other handlebars helper that needs to be opened/closed like #get).

I’ve had similar errors caused by that.


this is my problem, where can I look to change this?I am very very new to this process

I can’t help you better than the docs can with getting up to speed, unfortunately.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart, you realize that I have read everything possible, the point is that I understood that it is a wrong command or it is not closed, my problem is that I do not know programming, I have extensive knowledge about programming and the site. I looked for where to modify this error but I can’t figure out if I should go to Code injection? to make these changes?
Do you think it’s better to look for a specialist to fix it, than to break it? :)))D

hello again !
in the meantime I understood that I had to install an editor, I did it and downloaded the original theme because that’s where I understood that there was a problem and I’m trying to check it. But I can’t find the word that the “match” error refers to anywhere. Is what I have done so far good?

Following your advice, I fixed the problem with “match” and another Missing helper appeared: “if_eq”. I just found out how to modify them and finished them. Thank you very much.
