  4. Ohanah
  5. Poweradmin
  6. Securitycheck Extensions

1. Akeeba Admintools

Abeeba Admin Tools WAF security settings can triggers errors. To resolve this you need to add " koowa" to the list of allowed tmpl = keywords.

Go to Components -> Admin Tools -> Web Application Firewall -> Configure WAF -> Tab: Visual Fingrprinting Protection -> add " koowa" to the "list of allowed tmpl=keywords" (the list will now be: "component,system,raw,koowa")

2. Doc Indexer search plugin

We discovered that the Doc Indexer search plugin is interfering with DOCman as the search functionality works when that plugin is disabled.

If you are using the Doc Indexer search plugin please try to contact the developers of Doc Indexer to see if they have a solution.

3. Helix Framework

If you are using the Helix II template framework from Joomshaper you might get errors when navigating to the "Add new document" on the frontend after clicking the SELECT a file button. The lightbox can show the following warning :

<strong>Warning</strong>: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in <strong>/www/plugins/system/helix/shortcodes/column.php</strong> on line <strong>32</strong>

Solution : In your template folder, create a new folder called "shortcodes" (if it doesn't exist) %your templatefolder%/shortcodes/column.php

In the "shortcodes" folder, copy the column.php from the Helix framework.

Open the newly copied file then look for the line add_shortcode( 'row', 'row_sc' ); and replace with add_shortcode( 'sprow', 'row_sc' ); and save the file.Now, in order to use column shortcode you must need to use [sprow] instead of [row] in your article.

4. Ohanah

Ohanah is using a previous version of our Joomlatools Framework. Upgrading DOCman 3 with Ohanah v2 or v3 installed would break your site as Ohanah would no longer function correctly.  There is no solution for this issue. Ohanah does work with DOCman 2.x

5. Poweradmin

If you have the Poweradmin extension installed you can get unexpected results with the "create documents" workflow.

Users have reported that with Poweradmin enabled the create documents workflow creates multiple documents for the same file instead of just one.

Disabling, or removing the Poweradmin extension solves the problem.

6. Securitycheck Extensions

We recently had a customer contact us to inform us that after updating from DOCman 2.x to 3.1 the DOCman menu items and DOCman modules were generating 404 error messages "file not found" / "category not found" when Joomla SEO urls were enabled, everything worked as it should when SEO urls were disabled.

After investigating the customer's issue our developers discovered a conflict with the following extensions:

  1. Securitycheck Pro
  2. Securitycheck Spam Protection

If you have either of these extensions installed on your site then please contact the developers of the extensions so they can investigate why their plugins are blocking DOCman.
