main page became empty

bsko / 2020-03-15 13:13:33   

Hi forum, hi indexibit,

my main page lost its media, which should be (and were) all exhibits of the site(both Project and Research sections), showing thumbnails like in other sections.

When I change Main page's Media Source, it doesn't change anything.
And I can't edit or add more Sections from the index page, where all pages are listed. There is no button, I think it was there upper right beside "Preferences Help Logout"...

Hopefully someone can understand the problem.. Any hint will be grateful.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?
My main page doesn't show any exhibits more. It is set as "Visual Index" with Media Source "all", and it was working fine for long time.
I don't get what happened and what to change..
Tried to create a new section and applied the same settings, but didn't work either - showing nothing.
Does anyone have idea?

And if you try to define in Options of the Exhibit as Media source "Section"

Hum not forgotten written too fast: D
it works with media source on "all" for me

And in "Page Options" to "Template" is it of course "index.php" and not tag.php or media.php ?

Hi Frami,
thank you for your reply!
What do you mean with "Template"?
Where can I set it?
I don't have it under Page Options..

I actually don't have this menu "Template" at all....
I have v2.1.6 and sql version 7.0, if they might concern :)
Would it somehow help, to change to sql 7.4?

Thanks for the screenshot!

weird, same version indexhibit 2.1.6 dated the last update of March 13, 2020, but php 7.3 and mysql 5.6

check out the github side to see the updates:…

Thanks Frami!
I updated one file for statistiks.
Yet my main page is not loading any exhibits and I was thinking to reinstall the whole thing.
But I found out, the same problem is also there, in my another very new website with Indexhibit, which is using the same hosting but a separate database.
So I think reinstalling wouldn't help and it should have something to do with the server or something far away from my imagination range.

So, the "symptoms" are again:
1. Main page doesn't load any Exhibits.(media source "All", exhibit format "Visual Index")
2. Page Options doesn't show "Template" option.
3. Other Sections are working fine with "Visual Index" from "Section".
*v2.1.6, php7.4, mysql 5.7.28

Hi! I have the same problem. Media Source 'All' option is not working for the main page. Tried it on a freshly installed Indexhibit - it's not working from the box either.

Hi, what is your environment exactly? (indexhibit version, php, mysql version...)

This thread has been closed, thank you.
