Thank you it worked on both my sites.
Joomla 3.8 compatibility - Update
Posted 28 September 2017 - 03:00 PM
Hopefully Joomla gets all of the issues worked out of the experimental router in the next few versions.
I assume the JReviews SEF plugin will still be needed. I know that the JReviews SEF plugin currently suppresses canonical links (because Joomla couldn't get their act together). Do you plan to add this functionality back (at least for articles, categories and listings)?
I've notice a couple of times in the last month or so Google linking to a listing page with a weird url that I have no idea how they discovered.

@chris: This one is not related to Joomla 3.8 nor the SEF Plugin. Either the module or search in general looks to be configured to use the current menu id and that messes up the search results URL which uses the current page and performs a different search when you click on it. You should create a JReviews Menu for Advanced Search. Then check the module settings and check if you have any value entered in "Specify Itemid of JReviews menu for result url" and remove it and also check in JReviews Configuration / Search if you have it set to use the current page for search results and change that.
Hi Alejandro. OK, I think I understand this. I went into the Jreviews->Config->Search, but the checkbox for "Use current page ItemID for search results" was already set to "NO"
I then went in to the single "Jreviews Advanced Search Module" and there was nothing in the "Specify Itemid of JReviews menu for result url " textbox.
Finally, I created a new hidden menu with an ID of 4606 for the Jreviews->Advanced Search.
I added that to the Jreviews Configuration page where it says "Specific a Menu ID for search results"
AND THAT WORKED!
Thanks again for your help!

I just wanted to add my 2 cents here.
Not that it will solve any problems, it will rather prevent users from running into issues next time there is a major joomla update.
You might have heard of this before:
Always Back up your site before updating to a new Joomla version!
There are manual ways to backup but there is also an easy automatic backup tool named akeeba that can backup your site if you click on update your joomla installation.
I prefer to manually backup in order to save space by keeping only the backups I really need, but akeeba will make your updates hassle free.
If you had a backup in hand, once your site showed that it had such an issue, you'd just revert back to the backup and wait for an update by the jreviews team.
Next time it might not break your jreviews installation but another plugin you might have running on your site.
Just a suggestion. you'd save yourself so much trouble if you had a backup in hand.

I have upgraded to PHP7 and instaled Jreviews v188.8.131.52. It seemed everything worked well. Than I installed Joomla 3.8. Now I have following issues:
- no access to menu /error Call to undefined method JModuleHelper::isAdminMultilang()
- no access to modules / error Call to undefined method JModuleHelper::isAdminMultilang()
- The site do not shows product listings / however it shows product listing module and when click on some product it shows list of products
- article listings are published under Joomla instead of JReviews system
I have uninstalled JReviews and S2 Framework and installed the versions for PHP7 - problem still exist. I have visited the Joomla site and had a look to issues connected with Joomla 3.8 and found info that some extentions have issues with Joomla and found that JReviews is among them.
Is there anything that I can do in order fix this before I revert to backup. It is live site.
