Recipe "show module just the first time" conflicts with one of my rule

Re: Recipe "show module just the first time" conflicts with one of my rule

Unfortunatly I still get that error message when the site goes online (joomla offline function disabled):

Code:


        * Error loading Modules:

Re: Recipe "show module just the first time" conflicts with one of my rule

Been looking around the threads for a similar problem, seems that you've given assistance for something like that before.

From what I understand it is caused by a metamod calling an ID that doesn't exist, right?

But how to find it, is there a diagnostic tool I can use without going into every metamod I created?

Cheers.

Re: Recipe "show module just the first time" conflicts with one of my rule

Hi Alex,

yes, if a MetaMod returns a module id that doesn't exist then you get that error. Unfortunately there's no global way to find all the different values that all the MetaMods return - you'll just have to examine them one by one.

Also, how are you "disabling" your target modules? Are you disabling (unpublishing) them, or are you putting them into another module position? If you are unpublishing them and relying on MetaMod to auto-publish any modules that it includes, then you should also check that "auto-publish included modules" is set appropriately in each MetaMod. I can't remember, but I think you might get the same error that you're getting.

Lastly, when you are dealing with large numbers of modules, then browser tabs are your friend. Filter the module list by "mod_metamod" then open each link in a new browser tab. Then it's reasonably quick to scan each page to find what you're looking for.

Cheers,
Stephen

Re: Recipe "show module just the first time" conflicts with one of my rule

OK I got it. It was a student menu "registered only". For your information, I call unpublished module by ID only and I just bother about the position of the metamod not the original source module.

If you recall, I ONLY had that module error when the site was online (offline mode disabled); meaning when I wasn't logged in! I found an option in the metamodpro that says "Show Quick module(s) to:" then I ticked "logged in users only" for that user menu metamod module.

It all make sense with the context in which the error was occurring.

Cheers Stephen, another one solved! big_smile
