Get error message when activating metamod module

Get error message when activating metamod module

Hi!

If I activate metamod module in an existing module position my whole joomla site crashes. The only line displayed reads

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '&', expecting T_VARIABLE or '$' in /homepages/2/d29239172/htdocs/joomla/modules/mod_metamod/helper.php on line 666

In the backend options I put via php-code only one module inside metamod if the user ist logged in an another one if not. If I deactivate metamod module the site instantly works again, also if I put metamod module into a module position that doesn´t exist in the template. (But of cours this doesn´t help me...)

I cannot get it to work. My Joomla ist 1.5.14, metamod version is 2.1. The module I like to show ist a simple menu module or the other. I set the options like it is suggested in your "recipes" section.

Thanx,
Christian

Re: Get error message when activating metamod module

Hi Christian,

sorry about this error. The reason is because you are running PHP4 on your site, and in the latest version I put in some code that is PHP5-only. I have been working on a fix for this so that it will work on PHP4, and I hope to release this in the next few days.

Thanks for your patience,
Regards,
Stephen

Re: Get error message when activating metamod module

MetaMod 2.2 has been released, that re-instates PHP4 compatibility (and fixes some other bugs, and has a French translation).
