K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product.

Question Incompatibility with Rockettheme's Gantry template?

8 years 2 months ago #1 by Chris-Austin
I have just created a new user on my live site and went to edit the profile and got an error message:

Warning: SimpleXMLElement::addAttribute(): Attribute already exists in /homepages/17/d339608669/htdocs/the-centre/libraries/gantry/core/utilities/gantryjformfieldaccessor.class.php on line 37, screenshot attached.

'Gantry' is the template I use (From RocketTheme) and if this message is s subtle hint that Kunena and Gantry are incompatible then I have a severe problem with Kunena.

Hopefully you can offer me some assistance?

It is not a subtle hint. It is an error with Gantry, not Kunena. I have Kunena and Gantry running fine on several websites, and the only issue that occurs is the Edit but for Kunena user profiles gets blocked if Build Title-Spans is not disabled. Other than that its all good.

Kunena uses the standard Joomla user registration process.

Please ask on RocketThemes website for support on this matter, as it is clearly a Gantry error.

I'm having the same issue. I'm also not seeing an edit option when you go to the user profile. I have Kunena and a Rockettheme template running fine on my other site, although it's Joomla 1.7 and my new site is Joomla 2.5 . The error clearly says "Attribute already exists" and refers to the statement ( $this->element->addAttribute('class', $new_class); ) in the gantryjformfieldaccessor.class.php Gantry File.

I don't have a complete solution, but if you set the error reporting level in Joomla global configuration to the none, it will stop, although the CSS control of that entry field will not work. Basically, you're clean effect from Rockettheme won't work on the entry field and it will just be a white entry field while the other fields will have whatever effect is from the Rockettheme stylesheet.

With that said, I'm looking for a solution regarding a missing "Edit" button on the Kunena Profile. Any suggestions?

I've attached a screen shot of the Edit Button problem.
