Default Chap 9 HelloWorld Plug problems.


In Chapter 9 there is a HelloWorld Plugin that does not appear to work. I already found one problem in plgHelloWorld.php line 25 JEventDispatcher has been renamed JDispatcher. I get no errors with my typed in code or the code provided by the book. I also checked the the show intro text and it is on both globally and in each article. When I run Firebug in firefox I get no errors but I also see no sign that the code is running. This makes me suspect that there is something wrong with how the event is triggered but I can't figure out what. Here is the code:
PHP Code:
* @version
* @package plgHelloWorld

// No Direct Access
defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restricted Access');

plgContentHelloWorld extends JPlugin {
// PHP4 compatible constructor
function plgContentHelloWorld( &$subject ) {
parent::__construct$subject );
// Name function same as event so it will be called.
function onAfterDisplayTitle(& $article, & $params$limitstart=0) {
$myOutput "<h3>Hello World!</h3>";

// Instantiate the plug-in with an instance of the event dispatcher
$myPlugin =& new plgContentHelloWorldJDispatcher::getInstance());

Unhappy I am having the same problem

I put some echos in the constuctor, onAfterDisplayTitle and at the bottom of the module, the module is loading but neither the constructor or the onAfterDisplayTitle is being called.

Smile I think I found it

The onAfterDisplayTitle trigger output is only displayed when the summary text is configured to be hidden.I changed the trigger to onBeforeDisplayContent and it is working.
