Weblinks error after install

Postby nhtim » Fri Sep 08, 2017 9:39 am

I am migrating my J1.5 site to a J3.7 site & discovered that the Weblinks component is not included with J3.7. Research found that it is not included after J3.4. I found it in the extension downloads & installed it, but when I went to the component in the admin menu I go this pink error message:

"Error

Unknown column 'a.created_by' in 'field list' Unknown column 'a.state' in 'where clause'."

Any idea what happened & how it can be fixed?

NOTE: I had already transferred weblink items from my SQL file to the new site.

Thanks,

Tim

Hi Tim,
I guessing you've already deduced that something didn't work with the "install" and because your data is very old (from 1.5 to 3.7).
If I was you,
1. I would take a backup of your data from the weblinks table.
2. Try un installing and re-installing weblinks
3. then copy your data back into the new table.
Hopefully then when you go to the admin view of weblinks you should be able to access the records to resave them so the missing data elements from the old version can be populated.
Hope this helps. Cheers.
Glenn

I uninstalled & reinstalled, and it is working now.

Thanks
