Helix 2 Joomla 3 Quickstart

Featured Lock Resolved
Hi, sorry it's me again:)

Ok, so when installing helix 2 on both local and remote hosting allmost everything runs fine with joomla 2.5.

But when i install helix 2 j3 version local or remote i run into quite some problems.

First, the quickstart doesnt contain the template, system plugin or helix sample data. So i install template and plugin, that's ok.
Then i have a look at the result. On xamp things look ok in the frontend, php 5.3.8. But when in template manager, in layout tab, things go wrong. For instance trying to adjust right or left, after pressing apply the changes don't apply, but in the top of the screen a color picker appears.

Same happens online. This is with 5.3.21 on host 1, and because i wanted to make sure it wasn't due to that particular host i tried another host that runs on php 5.3.17.

On top of that, on both hosts i get the following warning when trying to view the frontend:
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/***/public_html/plugins/system/helix/core/helix.php on line 340, and that's it.

Of course i tried several browsers, several hosts, and several attempts but above errors keep ruining the party. Hope this is enough information to see what's happening, otherwise i'll be more than happy to supply more info.

Install again with Sample Data (Default).

Thanks Kowshar, installing default sample data makes the installation as expected and the warning in the frontend disappear.

However, both on local and remote and only on j3 i get the colorpicker when trying to use the layout builder, see screenshot. On this screenshot i am trying to increase width of the search position, set span to 4, hit apply, but only the colorpicker appears. I have to hit close on the template manager to make it disappear and layout stays as is.

Hopefully you can see what is going there, and if you need access i will pm it to you.

Thanks in advance!

Hi.
I'm getting the same frontend error:
Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/***/public_html/plugins/system/helix/core/helix.php on line 340

Joomla! 3.0.3, system plugin 2.0.2, template 1.0.1.

Could you please advise?

Please goto template manager and then click on layout tab. Now see if the layout is ok or not. Now save and refresh your browser.

Thanks for reply.

Actually, I've got it working by doing the following: In Template manager's Menu selection tab I toggled on some menu items (non were selected before) and saved the template. Frontend started working properly immediately after this.

Maybe this was because I, in fact, was not using the Quickstart kit - I installed Helix template on an existing Joomla site.
On the other hand, maybe that was just a coincidence - I'm not sure.
Anyways, it is working now!

Hope, this information helps.

Hello agin,
I am now a step further. I downloaded the worng file, so I installed Joomla3.0.3 new in my Webspace by your QuickStart Pack.
After that, I set the permissions to all needed folders of Joomla and try to install the Helix2 Template for Joomla 3.
Installation was sucsessful but now I have a error message:


Fatal error: Call to a member function Header() on a non-object in /www/htdocs/xxxxdomainxxxx/Jommla3/templates/shaper_helix_ii/index.php on line 25


May I need some help again.
