Categories layout don't show in assignment menu options
« 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?
