I have just viewed my site after the weekend to see the message String could not be parsed as XML.
Joomla 3.2.3, T3 Framework, Purity Template
If I manually type mydomain/blog I can access the blog and every other page, however my index page doesn't appear - just the error message '0 String could not be parsed as XML'.
I use a Joomlart template based on the T3 Framework (demo can be seen here http://purity_iii.demo.joomlart.com/). Usually this is a very stable framework.
My menu is set to XLayout - Features Intro, I have also changed this (to blog, and single article) and it makes no difference, however if I change the whole site template (to prostar) it works. So it's pointing to a tamplate/framework issue? I haven't made any template changes recently, nor any other core changes. No additional plugins or modules have been installed - seems to just have randomly broken.
I am still able to access the admin area, where I was able to change the template to prostar. I was able to update the T3 plugin as well, according to my install I am using the latest T3 version which is 2.3.0 and the latest remplate Purity version 1.0.0 Developer preview.
Can anybody shed some light on this issue?! I could probably re-install the template but I want to know what's going on if possible, so I can avoid this in future?
The only edit I did make was to the htaccess file - and it was to redirect non-www urls to www. This worked fine after the change and I don't think it's related.
