Error - No Collections Available

I get this message on the Collections tab of Pawtucket 2.

I have three collections, all have public access.

How can I fix this?

CA 1.7.8
Ubuntu 18.04 server


  • As there has been no advice on how to fix this, I have removed the Collections tab from the header.

  • Did you try configuring the types of collection to display in the section? You need to set that in the landing_page_collection_type setting in app.conf

  • Thanks for replying. And thanks also for enabling emails on thread updates.

    I have tried adding either
    landing_page_collection_type = cihp
    to the file pawtucket/themes/default/conf/app.conf
    And I have reset pawtucket/themes/default/views/pageFormat/pageHeader.php to include collections.

    What is the correct syntax for the command?

  • The latter... but I mistyped. It's in collections.conf, not app.conf

  • It Works!
    Many Thanks.

  • Same problem with me.

  • Dear CA users,

    I have a question close to previous nirvine's one: how to present internal and external collections?

    In collection.conf, the default is:
    landing_page_collection_type = internal

    I could change this to:
    landing_page_collection_type = external

    But it would present only external...
    I would like both.

    Or, if it is not possible by this way, I would like to present, at first internal collections, followed by external collections.

    Thank you.
