Problems with copy_move extension and 0.6.6

Hi. Is there anyone on the list who has got a successful installation
of the copy_move extension with the latest radiant release? I
installed it without problems with SVN from the author web site, and
according the other instructions set forth in the readme file, but no
buttons showed up on the admin page interface–as I would have
expected. Is there something I’ve to take attention at or is this a
known issue? Many thanks in advance for your assistance on this
matter.

I did. I got the code from the SVN repository and used the following
rake command to install:

sudo rake development radiant:extensions:copy_move:install

Did your terminal window give you any errors when running rake? Maybe
the /public/images/admin/ directory where the images are copied to was
not writable by the server?

One thing I did notice was that copying a page with attached files (via
the page_attachments extension) caused the new page to lose the
attachments. I assumed this was just how CopyMove was built and not a
0.6.6 bug, as I had never used CopyMove before.

Well actually since all page attachments associate with a page’s id,
copying a page would include a new page id, therefore unattached files.
It kind of sucks, but at the same I don’t think its a critical feature
to have for neither page attachments or copy/move.

Yes, CopyMove copies just the page attributes and no other attributes or
tables created by other extensions. I suggest you to use the git
repository
(http://github.com/pilu/radiant-copy-move/) because my svn repo is no
longer
updated.
Luigi does it work now or you still have problems?

That makes sense. There’s no reason CopyMove should account for data or
files attached with another extension (and in this case, you’d have to
duplicate the files in the file structure as well).

I suggest you to use the git repository
(http://github.com/pilu/radiant-copy-move/)
because my svn repo is no longer updated.

I didn’t realize GitHub had a download feature until now. Very nice!

Yes. I used the git repository code, installed it, changed the owner
to “nobody” to the extension directory, and got no warning/error
message from the console or the log file. Still no luck … :frowning:
Simply the code is missing from the admin interface page. I’m using
shards 0.1, and it is loaded as first extension.

Shards is up to at least 0.3 – could the old Shards extension code be
the problem?

  • Dave

Yes: it means “Yes, I still have problems …” :frowning:

David, thank you! This was the trick …
I installed the latest shards from the trunk, and restarted the web
server.
Now this extension is working fine.
