Installing Chameleon

Installing Chameleon

I’m new in Joomla and I’m still learning to use it.
I got Chameleon because I intend to manage my sites appearance.
I’m using windows 7, 64bits
I had difficulties installing Chameleon on my test site so I created a fresh Joomla localhost site on my hard disc and I installed Chameleon as the first extension.
The problem persisted.  The message successful installation was shown but it was also shown a set of 5 error messages all saying:
“(!) Strict standards: Only variables should be assigned by reference in Z:\wamp\www\imoforte\plugins\system\chameleon\chameleon.php on line ...”
on 5 different lines but all saying: fuction: call_user_func_array,  location ..\event.php:71
The error messages are there every time I open the administrator panel.
Can I have any help?

Re: Installing Chameleon

Hi,

could you please post the full text of the errors? Also, what version of Chameleon are you using, and what exact Joomla version?

Thanks

Re: Installing Chameleon

Hi Virgilio,

It appears that you have your Joomla debug notifications set to "Development". Try setting that to "none" and the warning messages should not appear.

I have just gone through the whole of Chameleon and done the fixes required to stop the warnings appearing, even in Development reporting mode. The next release of Chameleon will not show these warning messages. Note: there are lots of other extensions and even parts of Joomla 2.5.8 itself which will display some similar warnings. These are generally not fatal warnings and many of them come because of changes in PHP that have occurred over time (new warnings appearing for things that did not have warnings before).

Best regards,
Stephen
