ChronoContact “Daily Hints” bug

The current version of ChronoContact for Joomla 1.5 has a serious bug.

Once installed, the Forms Management tab in ChronoContact will display a white page preventing you from managing forms in the component.

jalal reported the issue on the Chronoengine forums, along with the solution he discovered on his own.

OK, I’ve sort of fixed it for now.

I commented out line 37 in admin.chronocontact.html.php (which pops up the tooltip) and things work correctly now. More specifically, it is line 4820 in the same file that is causing the segmentation fault (“$rssDoc =& JFactory::getXMLparser(‘RSS’, $options);”).

If I get a moment I’ll see if I can figure out more, but the above gets things working for me.

cheers

Hi jalal,

Ah OK it’s probably the “Daily Hints” — I’d forgotten about that problem. You can disable them from the Parameters Icon in the toolbar now that you can get into the Forms Manager.

Here’s hoping they remove this “feature” before releasing the final version…
