Cannot install latest Solidres to Joomla 4.2.0

2 months 6 days ago #19297 by Thellie
Hi, as the title says really...

I've installed a new site to test Solidres on Joomla 4, with a view to using the HUB to rent space to local tour agencies/guides.

But, on trying to install, I'm getting the message:

0 Too few arguments to function pkg_solidresInstallerScript::postflight(), 2 passed and exactly 3 expected

I tried uploading the file, and also using the direct link.

Joomla is a completely fresh install with just Akeeba Backup, Admin Tools, and Akeeba Engage installed first.

I have also tried installing inside Joomla 4 via the 'Install from web' option.

Same error...

I may well be wrong, but it seems that only 2 of the 3 variables are being returned in the function below:
I can't see any reference to $parent other than in the first line...
This is the solidres.scriptfile.php

function postflight($type, $parent, $results)
if ($type == 'uninstall')
return true;

// Install content elements files
$destinationDir = JPATH_SITE . '/administrator/components/com_falang/contentelements/';
$sourceDir = JPATH_SITE . '/administrator/components/com_solidres/falang/';

if (JFolder::exists($destinationDir))
$files = JFolder::files($sourceDir);
foreach($files as $file)
JFile::copy($sourceDir . $file, $destinationDir . $file);

$installedVersion = '2.12.9';

echo '

Replied by solidres on topic Cannot install latest Solidres to Joomla 4.2.0

It is a confirmed bug, as Joomla 4.2 changed a function arguments.

We are working on releasing an official update, in the meantime please install Joomla 4.1, then install Solidres and upgrade to Joomla 4.2 later.
