Ordering Showing Up Incorrectly

Ordering Showing Up Incorrectly

Postby rabel316 » Tue Apr 02, 2013 1:50 am

Hello,

Thanks for the great plugin! One problem though:

I just upgraded to Joomla 3.0.3 and the ordering of the articles in the Author "List" layout is incorrect. I have tried many different settings, and they all order from the oldest article to the newest. You can see my settings in the attached file, but I even tried setting article order to "oldest" to see if that would work, and it didn't.

Example page: http://brocouncil.com/author/1-ray

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hi,

You are right, that's a bug for the latest 3.0.3 Joomla version.
Please download and install the current com_authorlist package where we have fixed this problem.

Thank you for pointing it out!

My apologies - I have this exact same issue but am unsure if you'd prefer it in a new thread or in this thread. Please delete if I am out of bounds.

I recently took over a site that has about 142 authors (old one got infected and so rather than start fresh, it was handed to a new admin (me) to be started fresh)

As such, your Author List tool is a beautiful tool, and I have been enjoying it as I help the authors recreate their accounts.

However, one of the authors uses separate articles per chapter, and we noticed that no matter what ordering I assign it, author list is displaying in reverse order.

Made 3 chapters labeled chapter 1, chapter 2, chapter 3. Sequentially made at 10:19, 10:20 and 10:21.
Yet they persist in using the 'previous' button to walk forward through the chapters.

Joomla Version: 3.1.1
Author List: 1.20

What I've tried to remedy the error:
1. Delete menu item, create new menu item
2. Reloading the AuthorList component fresh.
3. Tried almost every single combination of the ordering options
4. Prayer
5. Exorcism

Let me know if there's any other info you need to figure out what I am doing wrong, or if Joomla team broke the component again :)

Thanks very much for your component.

Hi,

I tried the component in Joomla 3.1.1 and the ordering worked alright.
Are you sure you downloaded the install package after this post's date?

I'm quite certain that it's the most recent version.
I have two com_authorlist.zip in my folder - one from 4/30/13, the other from 5/8/13.

Above is the link to the test pages where I verified the issue.

I have taken the liberty of sending you access information for the site. If that is not to your preference, I will happily undertake any instruction you suggest.

Hi,

I have accessed the administrator panel indeed and I can see that the link we are seeing doesn't involve my Author List. Instead, if you want to verify this component's behavior, you have to see http://pokegirls.org/author-list/10-notapple.html
I think you are missing something in your Content configuration if you want to order certain categories' articles, maybe some hidden menu for each category.

Regards!

I'm terribly sorry; if your module does not create the ordering for those pages, than what module does?
Yes, the page you linked has the correct listed order. But if you click on chapter 1, you'll find you need to click previous to go forwards through the chapters.

I've set a seperate menu link with utilizing categories - that one walks forward through the chapters with the 'next' button, as expected.

But when I browse to the author in question utilizing links off the author-list module, the chapters do not function correctly.

Thanks,
