  • Presentation and Review on work done previous week

 

This week I was mainly focused on solving the bugs and issues in the previous code and commits. One of the main issue was that the field data were not retrieving in the form after opening an article to edit. Because of which user was unable to view the previous menu item that was linked with the article. For removing this bug I have to go through the workflow of Model and view again and then I understood that getitem function in the model article.php was responsible for retrieving the data in the form. A difficulty I faced during this part was to find out how menu item id can be accessed from menu table in the article model.Gunjan helped me by suggesting the method and after which i was able to solve the bug. The following commit resulted in removing 2 more bugs. This week I got little busy because of travelling back to college and got behind the schedule but I intend to catch everything in the following week.

 

  • Timeline & Tasks

1. Solve the remaining issues. Issues can be tracked at: https://github.com/joomla-projects/gsoc16_menu-for-article/issues

2. Start working on plugin to make the functionality generic.

 

  • Open Questions

I had a doubt regarding issue#13 https://github.com/joomla-projects/gsoc16_menu-for-article/issues/13 that why addfieldpath is not solving the error.

Gunjan suggested to get parent item dynamically using ajax and update select list based on json result.
