Thanks for the great patch which functions well. I am using a localhost to test your patch on WAMP server 2.0. My settings/versions are:
PHP Version: 5.2.8
Database Version: 5.1.36
Mozilla Firefox Browser 3.5.6
The syntyx error that occurs on the Menu Item: [Edit] page:
Notice: Undefined index: view in D:\xxxxx\xxxx\xxxx\xxxxx\administrator\components\com_menus\models\item.php on line 226
Notice: Undefined index: view in D:\xxxxx\xxxx\xxxx\xxxxx\administrator\components\com_menus\models\item.php on line 227
A forum user magikev http://www.joomlatwork.com/forum/index.php?topic=2369.0
has written to you about this before and he is indeed right that your patch causes this error, not only with a third party component but also if you select “External Link” as a Menu Item. Core components such as the contact form are not subject to this error. I suspected this error was caused by the patch because I am testing a variety of extensions on my localhost with two identical versions of a Joomla installation, one with the patch and one without.
I created a third copy of the Joomla installation to confirm this oddity by viewing the suspect Menu Item before and after the patch was applied and the SEO patch does create this error, but I’m not sure what it means. I have not tried the patch on a live server and this error was also present as far back with Joomla 1.5.20
I am not at all familiar with coding but I have been using Joomla for some time and if I remove the two lines from the item.php file, which is the source of the error, the errors no longer appear on the Menu Item: [Edit] page and all seems to be well, but I cannot be sure how this will affect the com_menus component. Are there any suggestions from the developer or other interested parties as to how to resolve this issue?
