BUG - Joomla Newsflash / SMF Joomlahacks / Community Builder Author Bot

Post by FidelGonzales » Tue Apr 24, 2007 4:45 pm

I have experienced an issue in the past and not having seen any mention of it have forgotten to make a note of it on the forums. Since Joomlahacks is down, I figured this would be the place to post it.

I'm using Joomla, Joomla Newsflash Module, Simple Machines Forums, SMF Joomlahacks Bridge, Community Builder (CB) and the CB Author Bot. When the CB Author Bot is enabled along with the Joomla Newsflash Module, any page on the SMF Forum is blank from the Joomla Newsflash Module down.

JOOMLA NEWSFLASH MODULE / CB AUTHOR MAMBOT ERROR
8: Undefined property: created_by
File: /httpd/html/offroad/mambots/content/CBAuthorBot.php
Line: 55
I have used several different templates to get this error, including the default Joomla template. Though, when I began using the newly-introduced Rockettheme RT Colormatic template and had the Joomla Newsflash Module inserted into the Javascript Control Panel that drops down from the top of the template, the issue went away. I recently removed the control panel and inserted the Newflash Module back into the header just left of the logo in a module position I created named "banner." When I did this, I forgot about the bug issues and did not realize the forum was inaccessible until today. I have since disabled the CB Author Bot.

Another thing I noticed is that on the forum, the template drops down approximately 20 pixels. I don't know why this is the case, but despite my love for SMF, I am beginning to look toward migrating to Fireboard (http://www.bestofjoomla.com/), which is a progression of Joomlaboard. Once group- and category-based permissions exist to enable view, post and admin restrictions based on forum categories, member and group permissions, I'll make the move. It seems they are almost there.

I'm not familiar with the coding of that bot, but it sounds like it's having trouble pulling the "created by" info from newsflash content items.  Very strange.

It seems the Joomlahacks web site is working - you'll probably want to post there.  Though I do see one post about this issue with no response.  :(
