Chameleon Pro Rules Problem

Chameleon Pro Rules Problem

Hi :-)
First of all I'm really impressed w/ this plugin ... so many possibilities. And your support is rather amazing based on what I've seen here :-)

I am having a couple problems though:
1. I have a category-based rule that switches a template (works perfectly) AND UNpublish a bunch of menu items. It works on everything EXCEPT the Home page, even though the article on the front page is in the correct category that should trigger the desired actions.

No matter what I've tried, it just won't hide the menu items when going to the home page, but DOES switch the template.

2. I tried triggering it by pointing to a particular article, but the article ID doesn't get saved ... it goes blank after saving the changes in chameleon.

Any ideas?

I'll send you joomla cp info if you need it.

Thanks!
Carl

Hi Carl,

yes, it might be easier to see this for myself rather than go back and forth with the details. I'll send you a PM with my e-mail address.

Thanks,
Stephen

Re: Chameleon Pro Rules Problem

Hi Carl,

You managed to identify 2 bugs in Chameleon! These are now fixed in v2.21, available for download for all registered users.

On your site, the way to target the front page ("Featured" view) is to use the Page Type selector in the Content and Components section of Chameleon. The 1st item on the list used to be called "Frontpage", but that was the Joomla 1.5 term. Joomla 1.6 and 1.7 renamed this as "Featured". Chameleon now uses this terminology too, and detects the page correctly. So I set this up as a rule on your site, and it's working correctly.

v2.21 also fixes the problem with the article ids not being remembered - although you don't actually need that function in order to target the front page.

Best regards,
Stephen
