  • I have been working on getting my Articles Container page to work to no avail; this is what I have in the content area:

    [[+articles]]
    
    [[!+page.nav:notempty=`
    <div class='paging'>
    	<ul class='pageList'>
    		[[+paging]]
    	</ul>
    </div>
    `]]


    Yet none of the posts in the ArticleRowTpl are showing up at all.

    Checking logs, I keep getting this error message:

    ERROR @ /assets/components/articles/connector.php

    I have been searching and found no answer for this...can anyone provide any insight?

    Thanks!
    • Is that the full error message? It should give some clue about what the problem is.

        • The first thing to try is deleting all the files in the core cache directory.

          If that doesn't work, try uninstalling and removing Articles, deleting all files in the core/cache directory (again), and re-downloading and re-installing Articles.

          Also, make sure your core/cache directory is writable.

          • Did all of the above...that got rid of the error log, but still not working-I did get this error:

            [2015-04-09 06:13:55] (ERROR @ /assets/components/articles/connector.php) Path specified for package quip is not a valid or accessible directory: /home/jhcbiinoc/public_html/core/components/quip/model/
            • Maybe Quip didn't get installed with Articles.

              • As much as I tried, I had so many issues with Articles that I eventually elected not to use it and to follow the Blog Tutorial here:

                http://rtfm.modx.com/revolution/2.x/case-studies-and-tutorials/creating-a-blog-in-modx-revolution

                It is coming together well so far, aside from an issue with Quip that I posted n the appropriate thread. Once I get those issues resolved, then it is just a matter of figuring out what I can do for an image slider and photo gallery solution that will work with the Foundation 5 framework.

                  Are you using MODX 2.3.x? If so, I would suggest the following setup:

                  Collections for the blog post container
                  pdoTools for the pdoResources/pdoPage snippets to do the listing of posts/pagination links
                  Use Disqus for commenting - it's better than handling commenting using Quip and can be included easily in a page.

                  For gallery I would suggest: MoreGallery from ModMore - it's excellent. As for Image slider, there's a billion of them and most will let you use (almost) your own markup.
