A template referenced a parameter that the template is not actually given.

How did this happen?

If you have recently edited a template you may have accidentally created the problem by referencing a non-existent parameter. Parameters are referenced in templates like {EXAMPLE} and different templates receive different parameters. You may have copy&pasted some code from one template into another and not realised it was not compatible.

Otherwise, you may have found a bug. It is possible that the software may neglect to pass a parameter in certain usages of a template. No errors of this type are left unfixed, but it is a common problem.

How do I fix it?

If you recognise that the error might stem from a template change you have made then fix your template.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
