Related Terms Error in Pawtucket2

For a detail page, the related terms show but it originally show the text (is described by) next to the term.
Now I just get () - the "is described by" has disappeared.

When I click on the term. I get the error

Errors occurred when trying to access /index.php/Detail//273:
Action is not defined

I I cannot find any entry for "is described by" in the lists and vocabularies.
Have I messed something up?


  • the "is described by" is a relationship type.

    I'd check the view template to see how you're trying to output the relationship type. For the incorrect link, check your detail.conf configuration and make sure you have a detail configured for the type of record it's linking to.

  • I am still having touble .
    I have not changed anything in pawtucket/themes/default/conf/detail.conf. There is no "Objects"section in this file - only entities, occurences, places, collections and annotations.

    Nor have I changed the terms section of pawtucket/themes/default/views/Details/ca_objects_default_html.php. It still reads:

            {{{<ifcount code="ca_list_items" min="1" max="1"><H6>Related Term</H6></ifcount>}}}
            {{{<ifcount code="ca_list_items" min="2"><H6>Related Terms</H6></ifcount>}}}
            {{{<unit relativeTo="ca_objects_x_vocabulary_terms" delimiter="<br/>"><unit relativeTo="ca_list_items"><l>^ca_list_items.preferred_labels.name_plural</l></unit> (^relationship_typename)</unit>}}}

    What I have changed is the lists and vocabulary section of providence under Manage - Lists and Vocabularies. I deleted the AAT volaculary, but I don't think I changed anything else.

    I also have two entries for "is described by" in the table ca_relationships_types_labels (and three"depicts"):

  • Any ideas?

    Update: There is a section for "Objects" in the detail.conf file. I just had not seen it at the top. The comment "is described by" is back on all pages - not sure what I changed here that fixed that - it has been trying a few things over the course of months. Today I copied the original detail.conf file and replaced the one I had to make sure that it was OK. However I still get the error "Errors occurred when trying to access /index.php/Detail//336:
    Action is not defined" when I click on a terms link on a detail page.
    I hae also deleted all templates in Providence "My Displays" to make sure that it was not something I had done here. Is that the templates you were referring to on March 19?

    I would really like to fix this - the site does not work properly until I have it working.
