Adding Author does not work

Adding Author does not work

Postby ZeroKewl » Tue Sep 20, 2011 7:23 pm

Hi there. I am running a J!1.7 and have installed authorlist and hwdvideoshare (and K2)

I have the issue that when I add a new author (the first worked fine) it does not display as a new author, but the Articles by the author increases. In the db all looks normal.

My questions are:

a) is this a known issue in Authorlist
b) do you provide paid services to modify the component to look for videos published in hwdvideoshare instead of joomla articles?

Thanks for letting me know.

I kept trying and found out that adding a user that has the usergroup "author" does result in the issue, however adding an admin works......

Hi,

Could you explain the issue you get when adding an author from that usergroup?

I don't see any issue when I do it.

dear chus

thank you for your help!
I've found out that the problem is if an author has written at least 1 article. If the new author has 0 articles written everything mess up
but if i assign at least 1 article to every user everything is ok

best regards

Ok, I have found and fixed the problem. The component was actually creating every author instance as it should but some of them were not showing because of a wrong database query.

To correct this you can download the current com_authorlist package and install it without uninstalling your old version, so you don't lose your data.

Thank again!

Thank you so much!!!

updated the package and everything gone ok!

the only thing is that i'm a moron, and i didn't make a backup of the previous blog.php. I want to show the image also on the authors list but the so i've added this to the blog.php:

<td>
<img src="<?php echo $this->author->image;?>" style="float:left; margin-right:10px;" alt="" />
</td>

unfortunatelly it's not working...any ideas?
