entries in my JHtmlSidebar repeat for multiple times

Post by someJmla » Thu Aug 09, 2018 12:10 pm

First of all, hi, thanks for this forum and support of the community.
I'll jump right in...

I'm following the helloworld component example and I've ran into such a problem that I can't even troubleshoot (how would you go around doing this?)

So here's the deal:

I wanted to create a Sidebar with 2 entries and each directing to a view. I used this code in my helper function which exposes a class OwrHelper () ...

Code: Select all

	public function addSubmenu($vName)
			$vName == 'owr_main');

			$vName == 'owr_options');
this in my view i simply pull

Code: Select all

<?php echo $this->sidebar; ?>
and in the controller this is the code :

Code: Select all

require_once JPATH_COMPONENT_ADMINISTRATOR . '/helpers/owr.php';
$controller = BaseController::getInstance('owr');
Seems that everything is fine, with the ..\Language\Text outputting correctly.
But here is what i get in the administrator/index.php?option=com_owr sidebar:


Looks as though it is rendered 4 times and i have no idea why !

Check for duplicate addSubmenu calls.
