Forum OpenACS Development: Re: approach to refactoring ACS Mail Lite
Note that parameter::get_from_package_key is supposed to work only for singleton packages. New packages should use global parameters instead (see ).
Hope this helps
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.
In order to access the global parameter, one has to use parameter::get_global_value  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.
