Cannot get Sitemaps working

Hi, I have started playing with openHab but I can’t seem to get the sitemap to return any variable.

I have a clean installation of openHab2.
I have a _default.sitemap file with only the following:


sitemap _default label="My home automation" {
    Frame label="Date" {
        Text item=Date
    }
}

I’m expecting to see the date returned but all I see is the word ‘Date’ as in the below clip.
I also see errors in the log:

Cannot retrieve item for widget org.eclipse.smarthome.model.sitemap.Text
Cannot retrieve item ‘Date’ for widget org.eclipse.smarthome.model.sitemap.Text

I have installed the 1.x compatibility layer an this is a new install as I thought the original may be corrupt.
I would appreciate any help!
Thanks
Justin

NTP Binding Installed?

What does your Date Item look like?

Hi There,

Thanks for your help.
i had two issues - the first as you suggested was with the Date item file.
The second was with the plclogo binding that I was really try to get to work - I didn’t have the Labeb\Formatting directive correct so it also didn’t work.

Thanks
Justin
