    Count() throwing errors? Link to this post


    I have about 5 count functions all in the same page controller. They have been working fine for a month or more. Suddenly (without changing the code) the following function crashes the page (with no php-error logs or debug emails being sent)

    function CountMembers() {
          $GetMembers = DataObject::get("Member", "", "", "", "");
          $Result = $GetMembers->Count();
          return $Result;

    Fairly simple. What could cause it to stop working all of a sudden?

    Well, Count() will probably throw an error on a non-object. A better example would be:

    function CountMembers() {
       $members = DataObject::get('Member');
       return $members ? $members->Count() : 0;
