Issues with third-party templates

List of issues with third-party templates discovered during the beta phase of JomSocial 3

Rocket Theme

  • Sidebar module positions not showing up on the edit profile page

If you use Rocket Theme templates based on Gantry 4.1.11 and bellow, you will experience issue with modules published in the sidebar position.
This is because Gantry have special mode called editmode but it only checks the URL for the active task
You can view it here
Starting at line 41 and bellow

$editmode         = JFactory::getApplication()->input->getCmd('task') == 'edit' ? true : false;

It only checks for task=edit and if its true, later in the code it completely disables sidebar positions
On edit profile page, JomSocial have this task, therefore, Gantry thinks that you are in the editmode
Resolution: Update to Gantry 4.1.12

Status: Fixed


  • Menu dropdowns not working on templates built with T3 Framework

If you use T3 based templates published before July 2013, you might experience the problems with dropdown menu in main navigation.
Resolution: Update to latest T3 Framework provided by Joomlart
