Hi fellow Joomla Enthusiasts,

I am trying to get Joomfish 2.5.1 to work with Jevents 2.2.8 on a Joomla 2.5.9 Installation without success...

I have found the information to create a contentelement for joomfish and name it "jevents_vevdetail.xml". See contents of my file below:

Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<joomfish type="contentelement">
  <name>JEvents</name>
  <author>Mathis Dirksen-Thedens</author>
  <version>1.0</version>
  <description>Definition for JEvents Component</description>
  <reference>
     <table name="jevents_vevdetail">
      <field type="referenceid" name="evdet_id" translate="0">ID</field>
      <field type="titletext" name="summary" translate="1">Summary</field>
      <field type="htmltext" name="description" translate="1">Description</field>
      <field type="text" name="location" translate="1">Location</field>
      <field type="text" name="url" translate="1">URL</field>
      <field type="text" name="organizer" translate="1">Organizer</field>
      <field type="text" name="contact" translate="1">Contact</field>
      <field type="text" name="extra_info" translate="1">Extra</field>
     </table>
  </reference>
</joomfish>


When I install that file via Joomfish Content Element Installer it confirms the process.
But when I go back to my translations, unfortunately no Jevents option is given to me as a content element. Therefore I cannot translate anything.

I can see the xml in the folder with all the other content elements (docman, etc.) in libraries/joomfish/contentelement/contentelements. The others work, but not my Jevents XML :-(.

What am I missing? Is this related to the XML file not working in Joomfish 2.5?

I would buy a membership if that would solve the problem, just unsure if there is a solution in the silver or gold forums or downloads area...

Can anyone help in any way?

Thank you for your time.

Steffen

Does the format of the xml file look any different to the other xml files you have?

No, that is what I dont understand... The docman xml for instance looks like this:

Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<joomfish type="contentelement">
  <name>DOCman:categories</name>
  <author>Sanjib Ahmad (sanjib@sanjib.org)</author>
  <version>2.5</version>
  <description>DOCman Categories Definition for Joom!Fish 2.5</description>
  <reference>
     <table name="docman_categories">
        <field type="referenceid" name="id" translate="0">ID</field>
       <field type="titletext" name="title" translate="1">Category Title</field>
        <field type="text" name="name" translate="1">Category Alias</field>
        <field type="htmltext" name="description" translate="1">Description</field>
     </table>
  </reference>
</joomfish>


The docman XML is even an old one for an older joomfish version and it still works...

As far as I see it, the xml for jevents should work, but doesn't. I even compared the database tables names and they seem to match too...

Any ideas? I am really stuck on this problem...

Are you saying that the JEvents option doesn't appear in the drop down of translation types?

Do you need to publish/enable the content element file?

Yes, in the Dropdown there is Content, Menus and also Docman, etc. but no Jevents.

As far as I know you just install the xml in "content elements", no publishing needed...

Do you actually have any events to translate?

Yes of course, I have about 300 to translate... and even if there were none, shouldn't the contentelement always show up?

I actually tried to switch the translation to falang and there the XML file works! So I guess this is a problem related to the new joomfish version...

Although I would like to stick with joomfish, if there is no solution for my problem I will have to make it work with falang...

Would be nice to know though why it doesn't work... More of a joomfish problem than a Jevents I guess...

Try to remove the parts of the XML file that are not there in the Docman file and change the version line to 2.5

Deos that help?

Oh my God! I just found the problem. What a stupid little thing...

In my jevents_vevdetail.xml there were two tabs indentation to the XML file. I never realised this, just now as I compared it to the docman.xml.

So for anyone having similar problems with Joomfish content elements: your XML needs to start right at the beginning of the line! No Tabs, Spaces or any indentation before the opening Tags <joomfish ... etc.

Solved, I guess... Thanks for helping me on the right path! Great Extension!
