I just recently purchased the Permalinks Plugin and I'm having an issue.

I added the 'permalink' field to  a section within our CMS. When I Update Tables I receive an error as follows:

12345 - couldn't determine permalink!

Have I missed a step during the setup or something else?

Thanks - nmsinc

Hey nmsinc,

I suspect the issue is that the section you're testing on doesn't have fields with either the name 'title' or 'name', so the permalinks plugin can't automatically generate a permalink for each record.

If this is the case, you can update line 11 of permalinks.php so that it has the field that the plugin should generate the permalink from:

$GLOBALS['PERMALINKS']['autopopulate_fromFields'] = array('name', 'title', 'your_field_here'); // the first field in this list with content will be used to create the permalinks. To use multiple fields separate them with spaces or slashes​

Let me know if this isn't the issue.

Thanks!

Hi Greg,

Edited those fields and now the permalink update works, however; when I load the listing page for that section after the update, all of the new permalink url's return a broken link!

Thanks - nmsinc

Hey nmsinc,

Have you added the permalinks .htaccess code to your site? If you have, can you let me know the error that's being displayed on your 404 page.

Hey nmsinc,

I suspect the issue is that the path to the permalinks dispatcher isn't correct in the htaccess file, this is the line to check:

RewriteRule . /cmsb/plugins/permalinks/permalinks_dispatcher.php [L]

You'll need to check that the path is correct and update it if it isn't.

If this isn't an issue, can you raise a second level support request here:

So that I can take a closer look.
