Topic Lists stopped working

Permalink 2 users found helpful
Dear Experts,

in 5.7.4.2 Topic Lists stopped working as attributes.
When I create a custom attribute of "Topic" type and try to connect it to an existing topic list I'm getting an error as follows:

You must specify a valid topic tree parent node ID and topic tree ID.

The error message applies both to a custom topic list I create and the standard topic list that comes with Elemental theme.

The error message disappears when I choose one of the topics listed under the tree.
But it means that I lose all the topic functionality as instead of a tree I'm getting nothing in the Composer...

Help and advice will be highly appreciated!

The 'Jobs' forum is for hiring a developer to solve your problem. If you are not looking to hire someone to fix this for you, I would suggest that you re-post the question in the regular forums in order to get advice from the community.

This is a known issue and has been asked before:
http://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/jobs1/topic-lists-stopped...

Fix can be found here but you need do it manually.

Hi rge,

sorry I could not find the issue mentioned before - you are re-linking to the one I created.

It was not that I was unable to create a tree - I could not properly assign it to an attribute.
As much as I'm thankful for the fix - it did not work...

Thank you!

I did get it working. By editing the files mentioned on git:https://github.com/concrete5/concrete5/commit/c24ecd6deb7fa2b7297325...

You need to edit the minified version of topic.js as well. The options allowFolderSelection needs to be set to true.

The file can be found in:
concrete/js/topics.js

Hope this helps
Also don't forget to disable Caching first. You can enable it later.

Hello,

I run Concrete5.7.5.2, I followed this Howto:

https://www.concrete5.org/documentation/how-tos/designers/how-to-usi...

and have a categories tree setup in my page attributes. But there's no way to select anything, the tree is just folders, there are no radio buttons or check boxes available.

So, I also did what this post says:

https://www.concrete5.org/developers/bugs/5-7-4-2/cant-select-topic-...

and added 'allowFolderSelection': true, to /concrete/attributes/topics/type_form.php. But nothing changed. I still don't have an option to select categories.

I checkedhttps://github.com/concrete5/concrete5/commit/c24ecd6deb7fa2b7297325... , all changes are done in C5.7.5.2.

Is there any other work around?

Thank you.
