ChronoForms v4 and Joomla! 1.6

Hi,

The blank page is caused by a PHP Error. The fix for that is to add this line
jimport( 'joomla.html.parameter' );
around line 58 or components/com_chronoforms/libraries/chronoform.php
    $form = $database->loadObject();
    jimport( 'joomla.html.parameter' ); // <-- add this line
    
    if(!empty($form)){


Unfortunately I still can't get diver's plug-in to work for me.

Hi saber,

Hmmm. . . all I got was the plug-in code
{chronoforms}test_form_1{/chronoforms}
:-(

Hi all

I just installed Chronoforms_J1.6_V4_RC1.7.zip and I get this message:

Fatal error: Class 'JModel' not found in /home/itparati/public_html/modules/mod_weblinks/helper.php on line 14

What could I be doing wrong ?

Thanks all
GreyHead
Hi Arnoldogo,

No idea - it's an error from the WebLinks Module. Possibly something is corrupt in your Joomla! installation???

Can you see the form with link "Frontend view"? If no - put "Show html" in Actions "On load".

OK I'm lost.........

Followed the tutorials, videos etc, nothing difficult in building the form at all, but I cannot get it to work.

Cannot see anything but an error in frontend view, tried the menu item link to it and still the same....

Do you get an error? My ADSL has been playing up....

Site is live, working perfectly, but I am struggling with the form?

Hi Kevin,

I only see a blank page there - not even an error message.

Please set site Error Reporting to maximum temporarily. That should show you an error message that you can copy and paste here.

Morning Bob!

Okay did what you asked above and it did find the error:

Fatal error: Class 'JModel' not found in /homepages/34/d218308172/htdocs/medboat.com/modules/mod_jabulletin/helper.php on line 16

The JABulletin module is the latest and most popular boats module at the foot of the pages, if I disable them the form shows, so that is partly good news!

...but I want these modules to show, well would like them to, especially when I add the quick reply form to each boat.

Is this a Joomlart template problem now rather than the form?

Hi diver and GreyHead
Yes, thank you - I can see the Form when I click "Frontend view"!

Unfortunately I can't find out how to set up a custom form. I only get the tabs "General", Code" and "JScript" so there is no way to set up emails and other settings as there was in the Joomla 1.5 Chronoforms component.
When I go to Form Wizard or Easy Form Wizard a new form is created, which is not what I want.
Did I miss something?
GreyHead
Hi saber,

Please use the 'Wizard Edit' link just next to 'Frontend view'.

Hi Kevin,

Hard to know what to suggest. It's clearly a JA Bulletin error message but why that would show up on a page using ChronoForms is a mystery to me. If you'd like to email or PM me the JA Bulletin installer I'll put it on my test site and see if I can work out what might be happening.

If I look at the form without the template that appears to be working OK - at least as far as I can tell from the front-end.

Yes Bob that is correct and the form also works if I disable the 2 JABulletin modules at the foot of the page.

This is when it all goes over my head

I'll look out the Installer and send it to you, tx!

Hi Steve,

You can remove the error and (hopefully) get the form to show by making this change in the JA Bulletin helper.php file around line 16
require_once JPATH_SITE.'/components/com_content/helpers/route.php';
jimport( 'joomla.application.component.model' ); // <-- add this line
JModel::addIncludePath(JPATH_SITE.'/components/com_content/models');


I think that the error arises because the module assumes -- incorrectly in this case -- that the current component will have loaded this class.

Oh just tested and only get a blank email with no inputted data?

Another point to note that someone might want to test....

If I enter an incorrect captcha it highlights the box and tells me, but it also displays the thank you message below the form?

The thank you displays correctly if the captcha is correct on a new page....
