I've officially released an updated version of the OpenCart version of vQmod with fixes for the latest twig changes in 3.0.3.5, 3.0.3.6, and 3.0.3.7
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

3. Goto the vqmod/vqcache folder on your site and delete the "mods.cache" and "checked.cache" files
Man I'm feeling stupid tonight...
Item 3. delete "mods.cache" and "checked.cache" files - I have a bunch of files called:

vq2-_usr_www_users_xxx_storage_modification_admin_controller_localisation_country.php
...
vq2-_usr_www_users_xxx_storage_modification_system_engine_action.php
...
some admin files...
...
vq2-catalog_controller_extension_module_featured.php
...
vq2-system_startup.php

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?

Thanks!

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...

1. The forum notifications don't work. I never use them myself, but I believe they haven't been working for years. Some people have tried to notify the OpenCart team about it, but I don't think it's a priority for them.

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.

1.) Thanks, I was wondering what was the problem...

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!

I hadn't realized Q had mistakenly put that directory in there --- I edited his post to remove that (and add the 3.0.3.6 info) to avoid future confusion for others. Thanks for pointing it out

Thx for catching that. Released one more update to that vqmod_opencart.xml file to fix compatibility with Journal theme that was broken with the fix I made the last time. Now it should work with Journal twig edits correctly.

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! :D

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.

So its nothing custom or special for Journal... it's just a more proper fix to prevent breakage.

I'm confused as to which update I need to download.

2.6.6 or 2.6.5

Thanks
