I'm one of the unfortunate class of humans to whom lessons come the very hard way and this was no exception. Today's was actually a reminder of what I had already knew (rubbing salt in the wound as it were ;) ) and it cost me about 6 hours of time  :'( :$  :)

1) When trying new things and a solution has been found, be VERY sure to undo everything else that was done to get to that point (also make sure those steps/attempts are recorded somewhere lol) and not related to the end result.

2) Tinkering as a troubleshooting methodology is generally not a good idea. Head back to the original starting point and build your way back up.

The culprit:

Code

{+START,IF,{$NEQ{$PAGE},quick_news}}
the only thing I changed here from a troubleshooting perspective was to add 'catalogues' after 'quick_news'. Had I removed this line instead, Miller Time would have come a whole lot faster. Secondly, the template this was in turned out not to be related to what I was trying to accomplish in the first place but I had neglected to remove it, d'oh!

Oh well, on the upside: troubleshooting usually means poking around and trying out things that one may not have normally tried out and as a result, new stuff is learned.

{+START,IF,{$NEQ{$PAGE},quick_news}}

I can say that for that to be valid syntax a comma is needed:

{+START,IF,{$NEQ,{$PAGE},quick_news}}

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I swear Chris, starting with my own damn self, commas and semicolons are next in line on my 'put me in an early grave' list! :) Thanx kindly for pointing that out, 'twas the issue all along!  :thumbs:

*mutter*, damn commas, *mutter*, stoopid semicolons, *mutter*
