The vQmod class code hasn't changed...only the /vqmod/xml/vqmod_opencart.xml file needs to be updated on your site.
How to upgrade from a previous version of vQmod:
1. Download the latest opencart version of the vqmod file: https://github.com/vqmod/vqmod/releases/
2. Extract and upload only the /vqmod/xml/vqmod_opencart.xml file to your /vqmod/xml/ folder, overwrite the existing file
3. Go to the /vqmod/ folder on your site and delete the "mods.cache" and "checked.cache" files
That's it. Now your twig files should be able to be modded once again by both ocmod AND vqmod
Indeed - apologies sir .. thank you - for so many years thank you
You should not modify core files .. if you would like to donate a cup of coffee I will write it in a modification for you.

Man I'm feeling stupid tonight...
Item 3. delete "mods.cache" and "checked.cache" files - I have a bunch of files called:
some admin files...
However I see none with mods or checked or cache in the name in that directory.
Perhaps this is the wrong vqmod extension - I was using vqmod-2-6-4 before...
What am I missing?
PS, the system NEVER notifies me of a responses to messages I have flagged "Notify me when a reply is posted" - and yet I get notices of updates to extensions automatically. I assume this is another discussion...
2. The checked.cache and mods.cache files are in the main /vqmod/ directory. The ones in /vqmod/vqcache/ are the cache files for individually modified files, but you typically don't need to clear those. If you delete the checked.cache/mods.cache files, it should refresh those other cache files for you.
2.) so instead of going to /vqmod/vqcache/ and delete the files (checked.cache & mods.cache), you find them in /vqmod itself....just a typo on the otherwise very helpful post about updating.
And if I'd been paying more attention I would have seen the files sitting there. Gah!
Much appreciate your patience and help!
You shouldn't have to fix your VQmod just to cater for Journal3, rather, Journal3 should get their act together and make their framework OpenCart standard compliant!

No, no, no.. it wasn't a Journal compatibility thing... I initially made a rather rash change to fix the ocmod twig compatibility (because I was mad at the choice of code in the core) and my change was simply to break the path so that when the code checks if file_exists, it would never exist. But that also broke a path that journal was using and I realized it wasn't proper. So I made a more targeted fix which would no longer break paths and directly target only the questionable core code.JNeuhoff wrote: ↑Wed Apr 21, 2021 7:08 pmYou shouldn't have to fix your VQmod just to cater for Journal3, rather, Journal3 should get their act together and make their framework OpenCart standard compliant!
So its nothing custom or special for Journal... it's just a more proper fix to prevent breakage.
