MY_Controller technique not working with Reactor - El Forum - 02-18-2011

[eluser]Wayne Smallman[/eluser]
Hi guys!

I'm having the exact same problem outlined in an earlier thread. However, the supposed fix doesn't fix anything, as I'm using a version much newer than the one recommended in the thread.

I have:

Code:
// controller start.php

class Start extends MY_Controller {

    function __construct() {

        parent::__construct();

    } // end function __construct()

...

Code:
// class MY_Controller.php

class MY_Controller extends CI_Controller {

    function __construct ()  {

        parent::__construct();

    } // end function __construct()

...

All of which gives me an error:

Code:
Fatal error: Class 'MY_Controller' not found in /path/controllers/start.php on line 3

MY_Controller is in the application/libraries folder.

Any ideas?

Try putting your controllers in the controller directory, not the libraries dir?

MY_Controller.php must be in application/core

not in application/libraries or application/controllers

My bad, you are correct.
The path may be the problem then.
The error message is not specific as to the the content of the path var. Where does it point?

Hi guys!

Start is a controller, and as such is in the controller folder. MY_Controller is a library, and as such is in the library folder.

This is the exact same layout as a previous project using 1.7.x, which is working perfectly fine.

I've just placed MY_Controller.php in application/core and it's made zero difference.

This works for me!

Place all 3 files in application/core
Code:
class MY_Controller extends CI_Controller {

    // --------------------------------------------------------------------

    /**
     * Class Constructor
     *
     * @access    public
     * @return    void
     */
    public function __construct()
    {
        parent::__construct();
    }

}


class Admin_Controller extends MY_Controller {

    // --------------------------------------------------------------------

    /**
     * Constructor
     *
     * @access    public
     * @return    void
     */
    public function __construct()
    {
        parent::__construct();
    }

}


class Public_Controller extends MY_Controller {

    // --------------------------------------------------------------------

    /**
     * Class Constructor
     *
     * @access    public
     * @return    void
     */
    public function __construct()
    {
        parent::__construct();
    }

}

Now extend all your other controllers for either Admin_Controller or Public_Controller
All new extended Controllers should go into application/controllers.

InsiteFX, that's working now, thanks.

Q. why does MY_Controller have to be placed in the application/core directory?


MY_Controller technique not working with Reactor - El Forum - 02-19-2011

[eluser]Basketcasesoftware[/eluser]
Because it's extending a CI core function.

Any Class that is in th systen/core directory that is extened has to be placed into the application/core directory. These are Core Classes.

MY_Controller is extending the system/core/CI_Controller, as you can see this is a Core Class.

Any Class that is extended that is in the system/libraries directory has to be placed into the application/libraries directory. These are Library Classes.

Thanks for clarifying my own response better, InsiteFX. Smile
