Component and modules tutorials

Postby Joomlawebber » Sun May 21, 2006 12:18 pm

Below is a wonderful and useful list that gsbe has compiled which i'm adding to it (the ones marked with * is gsbe's list and the ones i've added are marked with - ). Note, you may find some of them are for Mambo but they might be just as useful:


I have listed these tutorials in order of usefulness for our company. Special attention is recommended for the documents at help.joomla.org that discuss patTemplate, Joomla's upcoming template engine. We will all be working with patTemplate in the development of components and modules in the very near future - in fact you can start right now with the included patTemplate library in Joomla 1.0.1.

How do I get a handle on the current module?

Postby divyatyam » Sat Dec 01, 2007 4:22 am

Hello,
I have a question. I'm writing a php script that needs to know the id of the module that is calling it. How can I get a handle on the module that is calling a php script? (Can I use "this->id?)
Would be critical for me to know!!
Thanks,
D

Hi guys! I hope I'm not too late to the discussion?

The very first item in the list of articles provided does not yield the results it purports to offer.

I downloaded the source code, installed the folder: "com_hello" into: "/administrator/components/" and ran the link provided, which generated a web page containing the following:

"The page you are trying to access does not exist.
Please select a page from the main menu."

When I changed the path from: "index2.php?option=com_hello" to: "index.php?option=com_hello" I got the website with it's proper template in place, but still with the previous message.

So the first tutorial isn't working.

I'm using Joomla! 1.0.14
