Conflicts with other extensionsLast updated: 15 June 2022
Abeeba Admin Tools WAF security settings can triggers errors. To resolve this you need to add " koowa" to the list of allowed
tmpl = keywords.
Go to Components -> Admin Tools -> Web Application Firewall -> Configure WAF -> Tab: Visual Fingrprinting Protection -> add " koowa" to the "list of allowed tmpl=keywords" (the list will now be: "component,system,raw,koowa")
We discovered that the PDF Indexer conflicts with DOCman in a couple of ways:
- Docman document search breaks when the PDF Indexer plugin is enabled.
- The PDF Indexer plugin bypasses DOCman's ACL when it builds its links, meaning that your users can access non-public DOCman documents, even whilst logged out.
If you are using the PDF Indexer please try to contact the developers of the plugin to see if they have a solution.
If you are using the Helix II template framework from Joomshaper you might get errors when navigating to the "Add new document" on the frontend after clicking the SELECT a file button. The lightbox can show the following warning :
<strong>Warning</strong>: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in <strong>/www/plugins/system/helix/shortcodes/column.php</strong> on line <strong>32</strong>
Solution : In your template folder, create a new folder called "shortcodes" (if it doesn't exist) %your templatefolder%/shortcodes/column.php
In the "shortcodes" folder, copy the column.php from the Helix framework.
Open the newly copied file then look for the line add_shortcode( 'row', 'row_sc' ); and replace with add_shortcode( 'sprow', 'row_sc' ); and save the file.Now, in order to use column shortcode you must need to use [sprow] instead of [row] in your article.
If you have either of these extensions installed you might experience 404 error messages "file not found" / "category not found" errors for menu items and modules. This only happens with Joomla SEO urls enabled.
Either disable both extensions or contact the developers of the extensions so they can investigate why their plugins are blocking DOCman.
If after upgrading to joomla 3.8.0, with sh404sef also installed on your site, DOCman doesn't show anything on the frontend and you just see your template without any DOCman content, then please update DOCman to the latest stable version and also update sh404sef to its latest stable version.
When using DOCman with SP Page Builder, you might have encountered database warnings like the following:
To solve this, simply login to the backend and navigate to System > Global Configuration > Server. Under Database Settings, set the database type to "MySQL (PDO)".
