    Hello experts,

    I made an override of com_content/vies/form/tmpl/edit.php by copying the edit.php and edit.xml to html/com:content/form folder in the templatefolder of my purityiii installation.

    I only copied and renamed these two files and changed the xml to gt a new menuentry option.

    When I open this override the site isn’t shown correctly and I get an error > 0 – Cannot use object of type ContentViewForm as array

    I allready tried the sollution found at
    but it has no effect to me.

    I know it has something to do with the call > JLayoutHelper::render(‘joomla.edit.params’, $this);

    When I delete the joomla. from joomla.edit.params the site is shown correctly with no error, but all cutom fields are missing.

    Please help me.


    @admin_help: you can reach the overrides by clicking on the marked menuitems in off.canvas (see attached picture)

    You don’t have to override to show joomla custome field.
    It’s already exists.

    See my screenshot.
    I renamed t3/layout edit folder.

    Pls try to remember this change when you update T3 plugin.

    Well, I’ll try to remind myself, but where was the mistake?
    Is it on may side or is it a bug in T3?

    Somehow it happens on your site specific so I will report to the team if they can replicate it. If it’s a bug, then there will be update on T3.

    Again, pls backup your site before updating T3 / templates.
