I have been using JEvents 1.5 since Alpha1. I migrated my Alpha1 test site to Alpha2 without any real issues. I even pushed Alpha2 to our internal intranet "Live" after some php and css tweaks. As far as I was concerned, other than a couple functions still under development... it functionally met our core objectives.
I recently applied the J1.5.9 security patch to my test environment, and found that the "View Full Calendar" link on the Latest Events module failed to load the calendar view in Alpha2; hence my discovery of Alpha3 being released.
I checked my events.xml file...
- Code: Select all
So I uninstalled Alpha2 and installed Alpha3.
Early on, I had a SQL error in the "Latest Events" module until I saved the config parameters for "user access".
First thing I noticed was that the iCal, categories, and events were missing in the back end views... which was odd as the tables weren't deleted. Oh well i figured, just my test install, so I started recreating my categories and returned to the Control Panel. It was then that I noticed Convert Legacy Events in the Control Panel, and decided to click it... hey, there's all my data! Cool! And proceeded to delete the new categories I had created manually.
The only "successful" view of data I had however, was when viewing the filterless list of iCal events. None of the event data is visible in the front-end, and if I try edit an "existing"/migrated event in the back end, the event is not loaded into the "editor" page.
What I had to do was edit my jos_categories to get all data views visible (front and back). It seems the "legacy migration" created new categories, but didn't update the catid on the events it migrated, so the data was disjointed/mislinked. I deleted the newly created Category entries and adjusted the old ones in jos_categories from "com_events" to "com_jevents". I ensured my iCal was associated to one of these categories and all data views now worked (front and back). I could also open an existing event in the back and front (changed nothing tho) and save it without issue.
If I try create a new event (front or back), I get an error "104 - Problems storing Event Detail" as soon as I click "Save". It seems people have been having success saving events in Alpha3... any clue why I cannot?
Another error I will get is"500 - Invalid Controller Class - Controller" in the following ways:
- Click the "Check Locale configuration" tool in the back end
- Click a "category" in mod_jevents_legend to apply a filter (unless I use the "default" layout)
- similar to above, when I click the categories listed under the monthly calendar view
I had even pulled down the latest SVN versions for:
- Jevents Alpha3 component
