Issues with banner module

I have the latest and greatest verson of ocPortal installed. I'm trying to add a new banner that has a gif image and the banner title text is blanked out, input description, select permanent, submitter is me, importance is 3 and validated is checked. Now I get this error: A critical parameter, title_text, was missing.

Hi,

I think this error is happening in the preview function.

Does this replacement file fix the problem for you?

  • 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.

Ok, here is little more details. It's actually the /cms/pages/modules/cms_banner.php





Thanks!

Do you want me to rename it to cms_banner.php?

No - if you re-read my post, you'll see I wrote the full path of the file that needs to be replaced :). The problem is not actually cms_banners.php module itself, it's the script that handles banner previewing, located deep within the codebase.
