    "More like this" hover problem

    jcassella Intermediate

      We recently upgraded to Jive 6, and just noticed that when you hover over the links in the "more like this" section, the pop-up always shows this error:

      We filed a case for this, and were told it's a known issue with no fix yet.  I noticed that the Jive Community site doesn't have this problem (no hover at all), hoping someone at Jive would be willing to share the update they did (a theme change somewhere?) or anyone else that has already made a similar fix on their site.

          Hi Jim,

          I've seen this from time to time in places, though I'm in so many Jive communities I can't recall exactly where. It did not last with a follow up mouse over though.  Are you consistently seeing it?


          If so, i would recommend that you create a case in your private Jive support group and let them help you further there: http://community.jivesoftware.com/support.jspa

            I was just digging into this problem and noticed that others are seeing it as well (why don't I learn to check the community first?).  Here's what it looks like to me.


            On the client side (soy, JS) the concept of "container" seems to mean the document to which the relevant content is related.  On the server side Struts action, there is an attribute which is a JiveContainer that is being set to null.  This causes the action to "error out".  I think that the container info from the client is being used on the server side to look up an actual JiveContainer which fails since Documents aren't containers.


            Not really sure how to go about fixing this.  I'll probably try to find a way to disable it.

              Hi Jim Cassella, Gregory Dinning,


              We found a solution for the issue, it can be worked out by replacing the following line in morelikethis_view.js :


              var link = jive.shared.displayutil.containerDisplayNameLink({"container" : container});

              with :

              var link = jive.shared.displayutil.containerDisplayNameLink({"container" : container,"hideTooltip" : true});

              But, we will have to do it in overlay. Is there any alternates u found so we could avoid touching Overlay approach?

                  Can you redefine the containerDisplayNameLink Soy template in a plugin and overshadow the one in the WAR?  I don't think I've ever tried that so I'm not sure if it would work.  If you've already got an overlay, that might be simpler.  If you have a cleaner solution, I'd be interested in seeing it!

                    Hi Gregory Dinning & Jim Cassella,


                    This resolves the issue :


                    Replace the following ftl content in your theme :  /template/global/include/jive-search-macros.ftl


                    Paste the following data in ftl :  (re-apply theme and refresh page).
