Conflict with Article Placed Anywhere

Conflict with Article Placed Anywhere

Hi,
After installing MetaMod Pro, I noticed that an Articles Placed Anywhere module position did not show the article anymore.
When I disable the MetaMod plugin, it is shown again.

I ran some tests:

1. MetaMod and plugin installed and enabled: Empty Articles Placed Anywhere module position

Code:

<div class="uk-panel size11" style="width: 240px; height: 240px; position: absolute; left: 720px; top: 0px;">

    <div class="uk-panel-badge uk-badge">(3)</div>
</div>

2. MetaMod and plugin installed; MetaMod plugin disabled: The Articles Placed Anywhere module position showed the article

Code:

<div class="uk-panel size11" style="width: 240px; height: 240px; position: absolute; left: 720px; top: 0px;">

    <div class="uk-panel-badge uk-badge">(3)</div>
    <div class="article_anywhere">
        <p><a href="/nkg/rondomu-en-jou/kringen"><img src="/images/stories/wijk04/vaste-plaatjes/vuurtoren.jpg" width="480" height="480" class="nosmartresize" alt="vuurtoren"></a></p>
    </div>
</div>

3. Metamod module and plugin de-installed: same effect as unpublishing the MetaMod plugin

Any ideas?

Re: Conflict with Article Placed Anywhere

Hi vdneut,

I've just downloaded and installed Article Placed Anywhere on J3.2 for testing. So far it seems to work as a perfectly standard module whether or not MetaMod Pro is installed, published, or not.

Can I ask, are you using the MetaMod to include the Article Placed Anywhere module, or are they not connected at all?

If you're using MetaMod to include the Article Placed Anywhere module then it's possible that the PHP code you are using may have a syntax error thus preventing MetaMod from including the other module.

Lastly can I ask if you are using any other kind of module manager system which may be conflicting with MetaMod?

I'd like to track this one down...

Thanks,
Stephen

Re: Conflict with Article Placed Anywhere

Hi Stephen,
Thanks for the quick reply.

I forgot to mention that I'm running J2.5(.19). Sorry about that.
Concerning your questions:
No I do not use a MetaMod to include the Article Placed Anywhere module. I deleted all MetaMod modules to make sure that it is not the one causing a conflict. So I guess the MetaMod module is in the clear. The MetaMod plugin is another story smile
I use the standard Joomla 2.5 module manager, so no 3rd party module manager.

I did some more tests. I had another J2.5.19 installation from YOOTheme (demo version of Moreno template) and installed Articles Placed anywhere and placed a module with some article. It displayed the article just fine.
After installing MetaMod Pro and without activating any MetaMod module, the article was gone.
Then I deactivated the MetaMod plugin and the article was back.

If you want to have a look at it I can give you an account on the test site.
Or, if you can't reproduce, I'll give it another test with a clean install of J2.5. No problem.

Kind regards,
Nico
