Hi There,

Hopefully someone can help...

Installed the Slideshow module as instructed, all usual SS stuff plus the additional config line to activate it only on home page. The CMS all working beautifully, however, when I go to view the homepage (in dev mode) I get this;

[Warning] file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: Unable to access /home/***/public_html/www_test1/slideshow/javascript/init_slideshow.js
GET /?flush=1

Line 527 in /home/***/public_html/www_test1/sapphire/core/Requirements.php


518       else $this->customHeadTags[] = $html;
519    }
521    /**
522     * Load the given javascript template with the page.
523     * @param file The template file to load.
524     * @param vars The array of variables to load. These variables are loaded via string search & replace.
525     */
526    function javascriptTemplate($file, $vars, $uniquenessID = null) {
527       $script = file_get_contents(Director::getAbsFile($file));
528       $search = array();
529       $replace = array();
531       if($vars) foreach($vars as $k => $v) {
532          $search[] = '$' . $k;
533          $replace[] = str_replace("\\'","'", Convert::raw2js($v));

Was not what I was expecting : ) Any ideas?

Best wishes
~ Sean

It means PHP tried to read that file and couldn't. Check your permissions on the file (webserver should have read access to that file - public_html/www_test1/slideshow/javascript/init_slideshow.js

Thanks very much Willr, I'll keep a note of that one for future reference!

...I ended up moving to another JS solution from the latest 2.4 book.
