Interstitials in 1.7.7

We are having problems with interstitials in 1.7.7, the popup gets an error message right after clicking on the paperclip (this is for objects x locations)

( ! ) Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function getParameter() on null in /var/www/html/ath-museoa-1.7.7/app/lib/ResultContext.php on line 619
( ! ) Error: Call to a member function getParameter() on null in /var/www/html/ath-museoa-1.7.7/app/lib/ResultContext.php on line 619

Adding a check for nullity for $this->opo_request in getParameter (line 612) in ResultContext.php avoids the issue, but that might not the underlying issue. ResultContext has popup up before in the context of the 1.7.7 upgrade, any ideas? Thanks


  • Similar problem in Providence v.1.7.8-
    Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function getParameter() on null in /var/www/html/providence/app/lib/ResultContext.php:617 Stack trace: #0 /var/www/html/providence/app/lib/BaseInterstitialController.php(127): ResultContext->getParameter('ca_objects_x_oc...') #1 /var/www/html/providence/app/lib/Controller/RequestDispatcher.php(273): BaseInterstitialController->Form(NULL) #2 /var/www/html/providence/app/lib/Controller/AppController.php(113): RequestDispatcher->dispatch(Array) #3 /var/www/html/providence/index.php(120): AppController->dispatch(true) #4 {main} thrown in /var/www/html/providence/app/lib/ResultContext.php on line 617

    In v.1.7.6 it is working fine.

    Any help?

    Thank you


  • Idem for US, with the 1.7.8. Any solution yet?
    We use HTTPS. The issue that we report is this:

  • Try commenting line 127 in app\lib\BaseInterstitialController.php

  • line 127 in which version? could you post the code line? Maybe in 1.7.6/1.7.7/1.7.8 is not at the exact same line number. Thanks!

  • It works! Thanks!

    The weird thing is that in the collectiveaccess online demo (that utilize the v1.7.9) it works fine, and inside the 1.7.9 code this line is present.

  • Probably the cause is somewhere else.
    Anyway, it works...
