Thanks Gustaf,

I've done all that. I believe the problem exists because, instead of writing it directly within the file .info, I'd created the parameter through the interface (APM). Afterwards, I confirmed that the parameter was automatically generate within .info, then increased manually the version number and restarted NS, but unfortunately ad_procs still persist returning "".

My package isn't singleton, but I did use global scope.

parameter scope="global" datatype="string" min_n_values="1" max_n_values="1" name="CodeIgniterWebsiteUrl" default="http://dev.evex.co" description="Website URL for Venues & Services CMS in CodeIgniter"/

I'll debug this problem over the weekend and let you .

Getting back to the subject of refactoring ACS Mail Lite, I can help to do the job. Let me know if you guys need want my help.

Best wishes,

As mentioned above, you have to run an "upgrade from the local file system" to process the changes in the .info file. just restarting the server after updating the info file is not enough.

In order to access the global parameter, one has to use parameter::get_global_value [1] instead of parameter::get. it might be an option to work towards unifying these calls, there is an agenda-point for parameters in the the 5.10.0 agenda.

Thanks Gustaf,
ad_proc parameter::get_global_value worked well.
It'd be great if I could participate in 5.10.0 agenda.
Best wishes,
