    Downloaded v. 0.9 and the widget shows up but the activity page is blank like this. Reverted to v. 0.8 same problem. I've cleared all the cache folders still no luck.

    Really not sure. 0.9 seems to work fine for me. Can you post your plugin list and tell me the settings you have for the Bookmarking plugin. Thanks.

    Thanks. There seems to be two places it's failing on your site: the "activity" page and the Activity RSS feed. Neither of which I can duplicate at me end, so it's very hard to debug. I'm surprised there are no error messages dspite you having Debug turned on. :confused:

    Try experimenting with some echo statements. E.g.

    Open activity.php in the plugin I add echo statements to the activityPage function from line 395:

         * Display All Activity page
    public function activityPage($h)
    "In activityPage function. Getting settings...<br />";

    // Get settings from database if they exist...
    $activity_settings $h->getSerializedSettings('activity');

    "Got settings: <pre>"print_r($activity_settings); echo "</pre>";
    "Preparing query...<br />";
    // gets query and total count for pagination
    $act_query $h->getLatestActivity(00'query');
    $act_count $h->getLatestActivity(00'count');

    "Got 'em. act_query is " $act_query " and act_count is " $act_count "<br />";

    "Getting results...<br />";
    // pagination 
    $h->vars['pagedResults'] = $h->pagination($act_query$act_count$activity_settings['number'], 'useractivity');

    "Got results: <pre>"print_r($h->vars['pagedResults']);  echo "</pre>";

    "Going to display the template...<br />";

    "Back from displaying the template.";

    That will hopefully throw some light on the problem.

    Thanks nick, here's what I see. My Activity Page .

    Nick Well-Known Member

    Interesting. Let's continue. Open /libs/UserActivity.php and between lines 46 and 47 add:
    if ($h->pageName == 'activity') { echo "In UserActivity class on line 47.<br />SQL: " $sql "<br />QUERY: " $query "<br />"; }

    Here's what I see now.

    Fascinating. The interesting part here is that it's only echoing that line once despite calling the getLatestActivity function twice.

    So... plodding on....

    In that same function, put this on line 40:

    if ($h->pageName == 'activity') { echo "Type: " $type "<br />"; }
    and on line 50 (after $result =...), put this:

    if ($h->pageName == 'activity') { echo "Result: <pre>"print_r($result); echo "</pre>"; }
    Isn't this fun? :p

    Done. Here's the activity page .

    Don't ask :p
  15. Nick

    Nick Well-Known Member

    Aha! Looks like we've discovered a bug! Try this:

    1. Remove the echo statements you added to that function.
    2. Copy line 56:

    if ($type == 'query') { return $query; }
    to lines 47 AND 53, i.e. on the lines after $query = ...

    3. Delete the original line 56.

    That should fix it.

    Ok, done. The activities show up at the bottom of the page and above that I see the following snippets - My activity page.

    Great! Remove all the echo statements you added, and you're done. :)

    I'll include this fix in Hotaru 1.4.

    Edit: Though I still need to look at that RSS feed...

    Can you paste that function here for me? Could be a typo.
