Getting along with the Article Manager
updated by rck, 2004-12-13

If you think about a content management system, you usually want to have a collection of text documents within it. A collection of your content. That's what I use Article Manager for in phpWebSite.

Some people are afraid of Article Managers complexity. I can't really understand why. To me, it's a powerful weapon helping me to sort my thoughts. I couldn't do it nearly as well with Page Master -- I depend on multiple pages.

If you want to put content on your site, please give Article Manager a try. Please feel free to ask questions or give suggestions about this article right here in the comment area. A link to "make a comment" is all it takes.

      Which version of Article Manager are you using? Can you post the line with the error, as well as five lines before and five lines after so I can have a closer look?

      cannot reassign $this usually happens, if you use phpWebSite with php/5. php/4 should do the trick.

        I have a similar problem, but my php version (php4/php5) hasn't altered (as far as I know). What if I that is the problem and I cannot revert to php4 as suggested?). I digress...

        My site has moved to a new server; thus, my root folder has a different name such as:


        to this:


        My website spits out:
        "FATAL ERROR! Required file Core.php not found."

        but my server php error log indicates:
        "PHP Fatal error: Cannot re-assign $this in"/home/sites/841/[webaddress]/[phpwebsite]/mod/article/class/Article.php on line 723"

        Line 723 only says:
        "$this = new PHPWS_Article($id);"

        What am I supposed to do with this information??

        I found this while searching the same subject:

        Fatal error: Cannot re-assign $this in /srv/www/htdocs/phpweb/mod/article/class/Article.php on line 723

        Goto line 723 & 724 and change $this to $article.
        function fatCatview ($id)
        $article = new PHPWS_Article($id);
        return $article->view(false, true);

          I cannot quantify the gratitude that would like to express for clarifying the "cannot reassign $this" problem in the article manager. After 3 sleepless nights and going practically mad trying to "try-out" other content management systems (because the article manager in my phpwebsite would not work and I need to publish articles for my website) I am now having severe acid reflux with all the stress. Thank you!, you saved me from further mental torture. I can now start using my favorite phpwebsite again!

            I agree, this was a great post. I had exactly the same problem, fixed in a second with this post.

  • article manager doesn't work

    Posted on 2005-11-21 20:24:10 By Anonymous

    I downloaded and installed article manager module 3.0 but every time i click on anything (and i mean anything) i get blank page. For example: if i click on Article manager module i get blank page. Demo and Intruduction Page ended up somehow on my front home page. Every time i click any of the article manager links i get blank page. I tried deleting demo article (delete button) and i still get blank page. I still see my logo on the top but the actual page is blank. It said that it installed successfuly.
    Does anyone knows what the problem is?
    I am running phpws 0.10.
    I cannot figure it out.

    Any help is appreciated.

      I didn't reinstall article manager but had in fact the same problem when finally wanting to use the mod.
      After creating an article, it just didn't appear in the article list.
      I know I had made some configuration changes but didn't realize that was the actual cause.
      I just found the solution to my problem here.
      Hope it helps.

  • article manager?

    Posted on 2007-07-12 12:02:27 By indeman[1]

    I am evaluating PHPwebsite for our site. Does the recent version of PHPWS (1.2 have the article manager inbuilt? I am not able to find an updated article manager for the new version. Or will the old one work?
