After applying patch the "featured" filtering effect should be fixed

I suspect that the ordering is correct
but some other filtering might be in effect

Can you try to edit module ,
and besides checking the ordering
- double check the category filter (if all desired categories are there if you want all , then let it be empty)
- double check and the authors filter , that it set to anyone

and then save the module once

I just tried to duplicate this and could not.

Is it possible that the created or published date on the articles are out of order and thus displaying out of order?

Re: update 3.8.11 bug in latest article module

Post by sozzled » Wed Aug 01, 2018 7:27 pm

If this was a bug introduced in J! 3.8.11 then I am very concerned. I was half-way through updating my J! websites when I read this topic and it caused me to halt my updating tasks until I was able to test whether this was the case.

I do not normally use the Latest Articles module. Most people would not use this module except, perhaps, on their home page in order to promote the fact that they've added some new content. I also don't suspect many people would have fourteen thousand (or more) hand-crafted, home-grown articles on their Joomla websites. I struggle to write more than one new article each month, let alone several hundred articles per day!

There may be a connection between the number of articles and the problems reported by the OP but I cannot make that connection.

I spent an hour or two trying to reproduce the situation but, like @kgress- has written earlier, I was not able to do it. As far as I can tell (and I've also spent a bit of time [unsuccessfully] researching on GitHub to try to find where this matter has also been discussed), I cannot support the theory that there's a new bug introduced in J! 3.8.11 as far as the Latest Articles module is concerned. I'm not saying that the claim is disproven; I am saying that there's more evidence to suggest that this problem is unrelated to J! 3.8.11 than anything else.

I would be interested to know if anyone has observed similar to the OP.

In the meantime, it may assist us to know two things:

1) What are the setting used with the module in the situation described by the OPl and

2) What does the Forum Post Assistant report show? ???

I don't even see that as an option in the Joomla Core latest articles module. See screen capture for the options. Maybe you need to select "Recently Added First" or "Recently Published First".

Maybe you need to provide us with a screen capture as I'm wondering if this is a third-party extension instead of core.

Thanks Michael for testing also. :)

I wish I spoke French but I don't. Did you try the French forum to see if that might be easier?

As far as I can see, the module is working fine. I wish I could be of more help. Apologies and good luck!

It loaded for me very quickly.
It is the Joomla core module.

But I don't know what the words mean in your module because I don't speak French. So the field "Classments" I don't know what you have selected. But I really think there is an issue with that setting and the dates you have assigned to your articles.

Rarely do Joomla modules do something you didn't ask it to do. Most of the time, they are doing exactly what we tell them to, it's just that we've told them incorrectly.

For example, if you have it set to "Recently Touched" then you need to touch the most recent article so it will display first. It could be that you touched the one from March more recently an that's why it's showing up first.

it just set to latest article created, and any one who are authorized to publish, i'll played a bit with settings and that dont help, anyway yesterday on 3.8.10 before the upgrade to 3.8.11 (and since age), there was no issue at all, this is why i'm bugging you so hard... ; )))))

a friend of mine who is dev are alerted of the issue, he have the key of the blog, he will be reading this thread later on night i think (he work during nigth)

anyway i ask mandville to excuse me about my joke, it was stupid, but i'm on nerve with that issue,

thanks you all,

guillaume,

Apparently there was an issue reported on GitHub connected to this problem: https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/pull/21336

According to that discussion, articles are listed (in the correct order) but featured articles are not included in the module's display. (I need to verify this with further testing myself.)

Unsure: :-\ The patch may make a difference but, firstly, I want to see the problem.

EDIT: Yes, this is verifiable. If you change an article to featured then the featured article(s) disappear from the module display. Next thing to do is to see if the patch resolves the problem.

I have been checking every site I have using Latest - Articles Module as I'm doing updates from 3.8.10 to 3.8.11 and so far every single one of them has been 100% fine.

Re: update 3.8.11 bug in latest article module

Post by sozzled » Wed Aug 01, 2018 10:01 pm

Success!

There are two files that need to be replaced (use GitHub to find the source code):

1) /modules/mod_articles_latest/helper.php
2) /modules/mod_articles_news/helper.php

The Articles - Latest and Articles - Newsflash modules each have a setting Featured Articles. There are three possible values for this setting:
  • Show
  • Hide
  • Only show Featured Articles
The bug, introduced in J! 3.8.11 ignores the first two values for this setting (as far as featured articles are concerned); featured articles will always be hidden. If you use the third value, no articles will be displayed! The patch fixes this defect and the setting values work as they are should.

Thanks for telling us about it.

I thought we were talking about Latest Articles Module. Not Newsflash. Only one person in this thread mentioned newsflash and they weren't the OP and the OP never confirmed it was newsflash or not. Annoying.

Hopefully that works!

Re: update 3.8.11 bug in latest article module

Post by sozzled » Wed Aug 01, 2018 10:20 pm

@jgress-: I don't use the Newsflash module myself (in a production sense, that is) and I haven't used it since the days of J! 1.5. I don't make a lot of use of the Latest Articles module either; I use it on one website.

As I wrote earlier, these modules wouldn't normally be used on every page of a website; they would only be used in one (or maybe two) places in order to promote the fact that there's some new or newsworthy articles. If you're running a news site (where you're regurgitating information that's in the public domain) and not writing your own articles then I guess these modules might be more important. If, however, you're like me and you have time to write a new article maybe once a week or once a month, then it probably wouldn't be so vital.

Anyway, because @mandville told me where to look in GitHub, I discovered that the bug had been found (in two places) and fixed.

@Folamour: sorry but I don't have anything more. There is a bug in J! 3.8.11 and it's in two places that I don't often use. I applied the patch and it works for me. Thanks for letting us know; you helped me. I wish you luck in finding the answer to your problem.
