Bug #23040 Bug Fixed

Revision Enabled Channels Throw Error upon Entry Creation.

Version: 3.5.4 Reporter: MajesticIX

This is an archived bug report. If you are experiencing a similar issue, upgrade to the latest release and if that does not solve the problem, submit a new bug report

If you enable revisions on a channel–upon first saving a new entry, you get an error:

Trying to get property of non-object ee-EllisLab/ExpressionEngine/Model/Channel/ChannelEntry.php, line 447

It still saves the entry, and subsequent edits to that entry don’t throw an error. Disable revisions fixes the issue. I have tested this on a clean install of EE with no plugins so it should be easy to replicate.

  • Yup - I was just about post this issue. I’m seeing this too.

  • Can you export your Channel Set and link to a download of it? I’m not replicating with a vanilla channel on a fresh install. And this is on 3.5.4? Lastly if you could cut and paste the full error along with the stack trace if provided that would be great. Thanks!

  • I enabled error reporting in the admin.php file, though it isn’t showing my more details. Here is a screenshot of all I can get out of it (I looked up the function and that’s how I came to the assumption of the revisions…and then disabled it and fixed it).

    Here is a link to the ChannelSet export: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tj8dtoupzf55i86/ChannelSet.zip?dl=0

    Here is a link to the screenshot of the error: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9zt45f2vv8jonfv/screenshot.png?dl=0

    And to confirm, yes this is version 3.5.4. Clean install (I used this to diagnose another bug last week).

  • No problem–if you need anything else or even access to this test instance, just let me know !

  • Spotted, on that line change:

    if ($data == $last_version->version_data)


    if ( ! empty($last_version) && $data == $last_version->version_data)

  • In system/ee/EllisLab/ExpressionEngine/Model/Channel/ChannelEntry.php change line 447 from:

    if ($data == $last_version->version_data)


    if ( ! empty($last_version) && $data == $last_version->version_data)
