Joomla! upgrade to version 2.5 showing Blank page

I have successfully upgraded my Joomla! 1.5.26 website to 2.5.24 (Core files only; will upgrade modules once everything is working) and it looks fine with a preinstalled Joomla! template. However, even though I feel I have followed all the steps to upgrade my custom template, it still shows as a blank page on the front end. This is not an issue involving an HTML file overriding a PHP file. It is definitely the custom template.

Here is the website the way it is supposed to look (version 1.5.26):
http://holidaycreation.net

Here it is after the upgrade (version 2.5.24):
http://holidaycreation.net/upgrade1/

templateDetails.xmlindex.phpindex.php

Please review the attached files. Thank you.

The fact that the site works on a default template almost definitely means the problem exists in your custom template or a module.  The notices being rendered on your sample page indicate your custom template has not been completely reworked for J2.5.  While you may have updated the main template file and its XML, it looks like you have not gone through other areas, such as HTML overrides.

I can try to help diagnose the issue, but be aware that may not be the only issue at play.  Aside from the article view override, your site could break because of modules being used on the page.  The best place to start is to generate a page with nothing but content and built-in modules (e.g., Custom HTML, not any third-party modules).

Also, please post the code for /upgrade1/templates/holiday_creation/html/com_content/article/default.php.  Do you have access to your PHP error log?

Thank you for your reply. I will go ahead and disable any non-default modules. Meanwhile here is the default.php file you requested. default.php

I do not have access to the PHP error log, unless I just don't know where to look. The website error log is empty.

I fixed it! You pointed me to the right direction. I had forgotten about the html files within the template. All I had to do was compare code at the top to another template. Thank you so much for your help,  I could not have done this without you.
