Call to undefined method JFormFieldRadio::getRenderer()

Postby lycra » Tue Mar 22, 2016 1:34 pm

Hello everyone,

I am still using Joomla 1.5.26 live.
I installed fresh 3.4.8 version with the addon redmigrator
http://redcomponent.com/redcomponent/redmigrator

Then i migrated the content (everything went smooth) but then i upgraded to joomla 3.5 and the error messages started to flow in.

Call to undefined method JFormFieldRadio::getRenderer()

I could not find out anything while googline the error message.

Maybe someone is able to help out?

The getRenderer method is new in JFormField with 3.5. If you are getting that error, then your upgrade did not complete successfully as some files were not overwritten properly. Follow the Method B steps at https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Upgrading_ ... 4.x_to_3.5 to re-extract the 3.5 package on your site.
So long and thanks for all the fish.

I just did that but without any progress.
I will delete this installation and do a fresh Joomla 3.5 install...
Thanks for the help anyway!

Ok I just did a fresh installatio and it worked, then installed the plugin redmigrator and everything crashed wth the same erro message again.

I know now the reason/ behind it:

The redmigrator file is not working with joomla 3.5
I will try to contact the developer.

For those of you reading this thread, I'd like to point out the real reason why this is happening:

Extensions by redCOMPONENT all rely on a library called redCORE and it overrides most, if not all, core Joomla functionality. The error message occurs because your component's redCORE version of JFormField does not contain the updated code introduced in 3.5.

You can either:
* Uninstall the component before upgrading, if you don't need the component for long-term use
* If you need the component to stay, then you'll have to upgrade the redCORE to at least 1.7.4 (current ver. as of now is 1.8.2). It can be downloaded at their GitHub

For those technically challenged like me:

I downloaded the current redCore (redCORE-v1.8.2) to my local drive. And then into went into my Joomla Extensions / Install and picked the tab "Upload package file". I selected the zip file and then clicked the button to install and all seems happier without having gone to backup.

thanks to ezh350 for the solve...
