Since i'm on the latest version of master-fix i cant import my profile anymore, it used to work 2 weeks ago.
I get the following error :
Error 282: Table does not exist
Table 'abs.ca_application_vars' doesn't exist (in Db->mysqli->execute())
Request halted.

Have you tried caUtils install?
and does your user have access to create the database?
PMassoels

  • Could not add bundle level access control for table 'ca_objects' and bundle 'ca_commerce_order_history'. Check the table and bundle names.

looks like that bundle might have been removed from CA - try removing the relevant line of your profile. @collectiveaccess or @stefankeidel might be able to clarify the status of this bundle

@samrahman The homepage files are in theme/views/Front
you'll need to create your own theme and copy the files over from default
the basic process is detailed in the docs: http://docs.collectiveaccess.org/wiki/Pawtucket2

I see a cloud hosting is required without a server. Are there any discounts for non-profits?
light-foxing
@light-foxing
Mar 01 2016 15:19
Also, do I need to use cloud hosting or an in-house server just download the program and explore CA's features? My apologies for stupid questions. This is all very new to me!

I get the following error in my php log :
[Tue Mar 01 16:28:29.744983 2016] [:error] [pid 5692] [client 157.193.217.231:49281] PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function primaryKey() on boolean in /var/www/absca/app/lib/ca/Service/ItemService.php on line 955
Any idea what that might be?

@light-foxing CA can be hosted on a shared server of your choosing, or any machine that runs a web environment. You are not required to use our cloud hosting (our rates are the same as the cost to us, so there are no discounts available)
You can explore CA's features by visiting the demo site: http://demo.collectiveaccess.org/

I am trying to create a new format for download results as (pdf). Instructions on the wiki at http://docs.collectiveaccess.org/wiki/Printable_Search_Results have me looking for find_results_download.conf (which I would expect to find in app/conf/). Has this changed? SHould I be looking for the file elsewhere?
(Because I can't find it there.)
Sophie

Mar 01 2016 18:41
@kaiall the PDF download configuration has since been updated

@kaiall
Mar 01 2016 18:42
Thanks @pinkfishies -- are there better instructions somewhere?
Sophie
@pinkfishies
Mar 01 2016 18:42
to create a new PDF download template you can copy an existing one into your local folder and change the @name value to something unique
kaiall
@kaiall
Mar 01 2016 18:43
But where do I find an existing PDF download template?
Sophie
@pinkfishies
Mar 01 2016 18:43
all the PDF templates are located in app/printTemplates
"results" are for search results, sets and reports that include multiple records
"summary" is for record summaries, accessible from the "summary" tab in the UI

@kaiall

Ah. Thanks @pinkfishies -- I think that gets me what I need to know.

On the topic of printTemplates, I is there a way to add a carriage return? I am printing off summaries of accession lots, and would like a way to space them out a bit.
kaiall
@kaiall
Mar 01 2016 19:16
@sterlingjenson -- I think it follows the setup for your display, so you would need to add to that template.
Also, I've added the new printTemplate. Is that subject to caching? Because it's been 20 minutes or so and I'm still not seeing my new option. . .
Sophie
@pinkfishies
Mar 01 2016 19:22
@kaiall did you rename the @name value in the template file?
@sterlingjenson you can add delimiting values in the display template for your summary in the "my displays" UI
Styling for the printTemplates is done through css, so you can add specialized formatting that way as well
kaiall
@kaiall
Mar 01 2016 19:32
Yes, I renamed the @name value. I had it as two words, and then thought that might be the issue, so renamed it again to one word.

Hi! I'm new with Collective Access and am having problems in import a file. I can't import a file maker pro mapping file into multiple files using CA. The file runs successfully in the process, but no rules are generated ( so no data is actually imported). Has someone been through this? any help is welcome!
