Class 'JString not found Joomla 4.0

Post by Harm222 » Sun Aug 22, 2021 4:25 pm

After I upgrade the site from 3.10 to 4.0 I get the error Class 'JString' not found instead of the control panel or system panel. Do you know a solution to this problem?

Regards,
Harry

I think is not time to update your joomla 3.10 to Joomla 4. As far as i know J3.10 will support and it is the preparation for J4 but you cannot update directly from J3.10 to J4; J3.10 is a support that will merge soon (it will take some years) then it would be seemless update to J4.

@wejom21, the information you gave is inconsistent and incorrect.

Read the documentation: Joomla 3.x to 4.x Step by Step Migration

Welcome to the Joomla forum!

Possibly one third party extension is not compatible with Joomla 4.x.

More information is required. Please post the results from the Forum Post Assistant (FPA) by following the instructions at https://forumpostassistant.github.io/docs so that our volunteer experts can review the configuration.

Thanks for the quick response. It was a clean install, without third part extensions, and then the upgrade to 4.0. I will look further into the document you have provided.

The FPA results would allow the configuration to be checked, in case there are other issues.

Check if the following file libraries/vendor/joomla/string/src/StringHelper.php exists. That file defines the namespace Joomla\String. If the file does not exist, get it from the Joomla 4.0 install package and copy it to the web server, which may fix the issue.

Joomla 3.10 defines an abstract class JString in the file libraries/joomla/string/string.php. Neither 3.10 nor 4.0 instantiate the class JString on its own, 4.0 referring only to functions defined in the namespace. That is why an obsolete third party extension, perhaps a plugin or a template, could be causing the error.

Just tested a clean 3.10 installation on Wampserver using PHP 7.4.12, then upgraded the site to 4.0 using Live Update without any issues. The JString message you reported did not come up in 4.0.

If the file does not exist then assume that other files will not exist as well and that you should revert to a known good backup on a clean webspacce.

I'm having the same issue. I checked that the file libraries/vendor/joomla/string/src/StringHelper.php exists.

I'm aware I need to update Akeeba software for J4 but I'm not able to as long as I get this error I think 😅

Below is my FPA info. Would really appreciate your help 😊

Many of your extensions are not compliant to/with Joomla 4; Templates, modules, components and more. Do your homework and follow the steps as outlined https://docs.joomla.org/Planning_for_Mi ... 0.x_to_4.x

@leolam,
Thank you. I did follow those steps. Wish now that I had taken a screenshot of the warnings in precheck. Akeeba software was warned about, but I have to keep them and install the new version alongside the old in J4 (as I've understood the docs for Akeeba). There was also a warning for a language file (there's no update for it yet, SE). Could that have caused this? I'm afraid I still have no idea how to solve this.
Also, the template I'm using is YOOtheme Pro (2.6.0-beta.3) which is compatible with J4 according to YOOtheme.

I have now activated debug via config.php but I still can't understand what is wrong. Maybe I should add that I'm not a developer 😊

It would be super helpful if I could somehow know which component/module is causing this.

I had a clean install of version 3.10 and then an update to version 4.0. But even then I got the same error message. Maybe it's the settings at my hosting provider. That is now the question.

Harm222,
Yes, well I provided the FPA cause I was thinking that would help finding a solution (not sure if it will though). But maybe you could try that and see if you get help. My server config was all green in in the precheck. I had also tested and installed a fresh J4 on that exact server beforehand and it worked fine. If you suspect it's server related, maybe try a fresh J4 install first?

I've now had it confirmed from the SE translation team that my issue is due to the missing SE language pack for J3.10 (which is not yet available).

Apparently there they are having issues with a file called locale.php which is part of the language pack. So I will delete my failed J4 upgrade and try again once I've been able to update the SE language for J3.10.

So my issue was not due to any components, templates, modules etc.

.ps If anyone knows about issues with changing the locale.php file for J4 in languages with weird characters (like å ä ö) it would be super if you could give me a shout out here, cause the SE team still has no solution.

The problem is that there is an error in the locale.php the SE team have created for swedish.

Apparently the problem is in the translation modules. When I download the English version there is no problem. But when I download the Dutch version, I get the error message.

Talk to the Dutch translation people. Maybe they have the same issue with this localize-file (and/or other stuff that Brian pointed out for the SE pkg). Apparently it's tricky with our languages with weird characters ;D

Can confirm that the Swedish language pack is the problem. Once I rolled back, uninstalled it the upgrade went just fine.

I also got this error in the Hungarian language pack, but I fixed it. The Joomla 3 Hungarian language pack includes an hu-HU.localise.php, which has a transliterate function that uses JString, but Joomla 4 no longer includes JString.
In the transliterate function I replaced the following line:
$str = JString::strtolower($string);
for this line:
$str = StringHelper::strtolower($string);
Also, after the header, I added the following line:
use Joomla\String\StringHelper;
localise.php.txt

In language/nl-NL/nl-NL.localise.php toevoegen na:

In header:
use Joomla\String\StringHelper;

De zin $str = JString::strtolower($string);

vervangen door:
$str = StringHelper::strtolower($string);
