Bug With Blog Component?

Post by Lottario » Wed Jul 18, 2007 6:29 pm

I'm not quite sure where to post this, but I'll put it here since it involves one of the components included with Joomla! 1.5.  Please move this if its in the wrong place.

Anyways, I've been working with the section blog, and I've noticed that the links it creates don't work (at least with SEF on and no mod_rewrite, I haven't tried this any other way).  Under the "read more" section, when you have more articles than will show on one page, the links it creates are along the lines of http://localhost/index.php/b_sec/72-j5, however, that link doesn't lead anywhere.  The proper link is http://localhost/index.php/b_sec/5/72-j5, where the 5 is the Section ID.  I'm not sure how to fix this myself (I know it involves html/components/com_content/views/section/tmpl/blog_links.php, but I don't know how to get the section ID), otherwise I'd fix it and submit the fix.

Along the same lines, the URL for the actual section blog should be http://localhost/index.php/b_sec/5, instead of http://localhost/index.php/b_sec, otherwise it causes errors when trying to use the syndication module.  And if anyone knows where I can go to alter this so that the syndication module will work properly, it'd be much appreciated.

EDIT: found where to modify the syndication stuff: html/components/com_content/views/section/view.feed.php (in case that matters at all).

EDIT2: It seems worth noting that this doesn't appear to affect Category blogs, just section blogs.

I cannot confirm this...  are you using beta 2 or the latest svn?

Using the sample data (haven't created my own data yet), I get urls such as:
http://127.0.0.1/j15bugfixing/index.php ... -joomla-15
http://127.0.0.1/j15bugfixing/index.php ... ed-content
http://127.0.0.1/j15bugfixing/index.php ... umentation

These links work without problems for me.

The link I'm getting from the feed module is:
http://127.0.0.1/j15bugfixing/index.php ... d&type=rss

This link IS incorrect, and most likely should be:
http://127.0.0.1/j15bugfixing/index.php ... d&type=rss

I'm not using the latest SVN, but rather one thats almost a week old now (with the permissions on Linux, it gets to be a pain to upgrade every night). The URLs you're getting seem to be the same as the ones I'm getting, but the ones I get just don't seem to work for me.  They give me a 404 error unless I add the section ID before the article location.  I'll upgrade my build and post back as soon as I test.

I just upgraded, and I no longer have issues with the section blog.  Apparently alot gets changed in a week :)

I haven't tested the feed module (I just wrote a newsflash article to do my RSS for me, as the module wasn't working... although now that the section blog works, I suppose creating a second section blog could work around that by adding the section ID onto the alias...), but if you still have the issue Ian, then I'll assume I still have the same bug.

And I apologize for not upgrading before reporting this, I didn't realize that changes happened as quickly as they do (and upgrading is somewhat of a pain with permissions, and saving files/folders that need saving).
