I have sucessfully been running opencats over the past year.
I've also sucessfully been running joomla over the same time period.
I have recently configured the connector between opencat and joomla. I updated the .php files to include the proper username/password database connect string. OpenCats shows up on Joomla just fine, but I don't get any data.
When I looked closer at why I wasn't receiving any resulting jobs I noticed the query statement looking at the extra_field.data_item_id and joining it with the joborder.joborder_id. I looked at our extra_field table and we don't have any entries listed.
Q: Is their a configuration setting we can easily set to get the data_item_id and joborder_id in sync and keep them in sync?
Q: Out of curiousity what was being stored in your extra_field table?
As a default OpenCATS installation will not categorise jobs by sector, this Joomla module expects to have an 'extra field' defined from within the CATS administration interface,
please call it "Job Orders"
Within this field you will have the sectors you want to use to categorise your jobs, for example;
If you want to change these sectors, you need to change the code within the Joomla Module, as it will attempt a match against this extra field.
Remember with a remote OpenCATS server you will need to open the MySQL and FTP ports bwtween your webserver and your OpenCATS server.
MySQL port is 3306
FTP port is 21
Any, all suport queries to the Opencats forum or the develoment discussion list.
FINAL NOTE: this Joomla module/component is not configured to 'automagically install' as yet.
