Author Topic: [SOLVED] JoomCommunityBuilderTab 3.0.1 – plugin installation error  (Read 25 times)

In brief:
Attempt to install a plugin:
JoomCommunityBuilderTab 3.0.1
The CB plugin JoomGalleryTab displays images of JoomGallery in a user's profile in Community Builder (1.7.1 or newer).

in current versions of Community Builder (installation of course as a CB plugin, not a Joomla plugin) fails with a message:
Upload Failed
Plugin version (3.0.1) different from Community Builder version (2.4.2)
Failed to save Install CB Plugin because: Installation error


It turns out that Community Builder compares the value of the record in the
Code: [Select]
<version> 3.0.1 </ version> tags in the .xml plugin with the installed Community Builder version (current on 2019.07.31 is 2.4.2) treating this as a minimum requirement, and if it is higher then it rejects the plugin at the installation stage.

In the file cb.joomgallerytab.xml
Code: [Select]
<version> 3.0.1 </ version> to e.g.
Code: [Select]
<version> 2.2.0 </ version>And add the
Code: [Select]
<release> 3.0.1 </ release> tag as the version of JoomCommunityBuilderTab, Community Builder will display this version number in the list of plugins.

However, setting the
Code: [Select]
<version> ... </ version> value too low (eg to 1.7.1) results in the CB of a message about possible incompatibility.

That's it.

Ps.1. I thought that this "old man plugin" does not work simply with the new CB, I'm not a programmer, but by trial and error finally after two weeks I came up with what is wrong.

Ps.2. In plugin .xml you have:
Code: [Select]
<creationDate>2019/14/15</creationDate>. Should be 2019/04/05?

Ps.3. I am very happy that JoomGallery (thanks to JoomGalleryFriends) is again on the turn. After almost 10 years of a break from www, I thought that maybe I will again launch some hobby, social website with the gallery. Funny, because it turned out that I will probably choose JoomGallery again, because as one of the few components, it allows the users community to manage their photos from the front-end. There are other galleries, but if you want to build a community, you just want to use JomSocial, Easy-Profile or the old Community Builder. JoomGallery is probably the only gallery that has something more than a link to the user's profile - especially in the case of CB, which I will probably choose. This (in my opinion) is your huge (maybe the biggest  ;)) advantage over the competition: the truly social character of your gallery component.

Best wishes and thanks.

yes, you're right. This version number is incompatible.
I created a Pull Request at Github for this.
Thank you for reporting this issue.

yes, thank you again.
