Error: 42 Failed to update contact: COM_CONTACT_ERROR_UNIQUE

Post by lyndaray909 » Sat Jun 22, 2013 6:55 pm

I was having problems saving user profile information so I followed this

http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f ... 7#p3042364

This fix worked for all existing users, we can now save info from our profile plugin, but we are now having a problem with registering new users.

After I did this fix, when a new user tries to register they get the following error:

Error: 42 Failed to update contact: COM_CONTACT_ERROR_UNIQUE

Is this because I changed ('userid') to ('user_id') In /plugins/users/profile/profile.php?

Do I need to change something somewhere else so this doesn't error out?

I'm really frustrated since I just got the whole registration email thing to work and now I can't even register a new user. Please anyone help me!

Did a few searches on the net and figured out that it was the User - Contact Creator I needed to disable it

This error comes from the component contacts. It is probably called somewhere without properly loading messages, that is why COM_CONTACT_ERROR_UNIQUE shows. Assuming it is COM_CONTACT_ERROR_UNIQUE_ALIAS.

Any plugins, overrides?
Issue with migrating? Include logs/joomla_update.php in your report!
Blank screen? Verify pagesource for HTML code (javascript error)
Installation failing on populating database? Install with set_time_limit(0)
Document your customizations!
