Title: Categories layout don't show in assignment menu options
Post by: korbeny on 10 October 2019, 20:30:45
Hello, first of all, thank you very much for this component, I'm testing it and it's very useful.
I have a problem, and is that the layout of "categories" can not be assigned to the menu, because it does not appear (attached image).

And this is the layout I need.

How can I fix it?

I tried to assign it through url (index.php?option=com_abook&view=categories) but it doesn't work.

Thank you very much

Hi korbeny,
check if exists the file components/com_abook/views/categories/tmpl/default.xml and if the websever can access to this file.
Which abook version are you using?

Thank you for answering.

I'm using the latest version (3.1.4).

And yes, the file exists and is accessible by the webserver.

You can try to install again abook 3.1.4 WITHOUT uninstall it.

I can access to this layout from the direct url (http://site/index.php?option=com_abook&view=categories&id=0)

But, in this way, every link in the layout will open in the front page... and this is annoying

Php logs tell you anything?
Are you using a windows or linux server? If linux, at the moment, try to set 777 permissions both files and directories (all site). Now check if it is ok.
Try to go to http://yoursite.xx/components/com_abook/views/categories/tmpl/default.xml via browser, do you see the xml file correctly?

For your information:

I did a lot of tests and found that something is wrong with the translation es_es file.

Before I installed it, the categories option was shown -image attached 1-; but after the installation (es_es), categories not shown any more.

It seems that in the translation file, it given the same name of category (categoría), for category itself and for categories and then only show one of it in the joomla options menu item type.

After this, I only can see it again with one extension that can take the description for make the difference between them -image attached 2-.

Good!!!
Open administrator/components/com_abook/language/es-ES/es-ES.com_abook.sys.ini
search COM_ABOOK_CATEGORIES_VIEW_DEFAULT_TITLE
change transation from "Categoría" to "Categorías"
et voilà!

That line doesn't exist in the file .ini

I added that line, but nothing happens, in Joomla native options still only show the single category.

But, there is no problem, now I know how to select the categories item.  ;)

Now I can sleep quiet dreams ;D
I'm glad if you post a review on JED for my project Alexandria Book Library (http://"https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/alexandria-book-library/"). Thanks

I would love to write a review in JED, but something strange happens, that doesn't let me do it.

I get this error (image1) and I already created a new user, and I tried from different computers and places but it keeps coming out that message and I can not do the review.

But I'm 100% satisfied with it, again congratulations on this job.

Are you using PC through a VPN? If you try by 3G connection occurs the same error?

No, I'm not using a VPN and I don't have a server running on my computer. That problem in JED has already been reported by several users (https://github.com/joomla/jed-issues/issues/85)

I hadn't thought about using the cellular network!  :o

From my cell phone I was able to do the review. 5 stars!
Thank you.
