Minitek Wall Pro - Professional Subscription

Hi,

I've installed the Minitek Wall Pro component on a new Joomla 4 website and initially it worked great. However, when I try to enable SEF URL's the widget I've created disappears from the page (on the front end). I don't actually need to enable 'SEF URL's' and 'Use URL Rewriting' for this to happen, I just need to rename the htaccess.txt file to .htaccess ad the widget disappears. 

I think there is an issue / js conflict with this file:
https://prodrone.alch.me/media/com_minitekwall/js/minitekwall.js?5a7f75c355960fa28946fa3b3f7e33f4

This code is not working properly:

this code is not working properly : window.Mwall = {

        initialise: (options, id, count, source, path, elements, itemid) =>

            new Mwall(options, id, count, source, path, elements, itemid),

    };

})(document, Joomla);

Your help would be appreciated!

Hi,

Actually, I have discovered that I have a wider issue. It seems that if I hard refresh after renaming the htaccess file .htaccess the Joomla admin area breaks (the CSS breaks). I don't know if this problem is related the widget not displaying on the front end, but it might save you some time? I have just tried installing a completely clean Joomla 4 site on the same GoDaddy host environment and that has the same problem, so I guess I have a Joomla / GoDaddy issue?

Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

I have managed to fix this now. Just in case it helps anyone else, it appears that the GoDaddy server I'm using is already gzipping css and js files, so I don't need the GZIP section in the htaccess file (at the bottom of the file). I have commented out the GZIP section and the site is working properly now (both front end and backend).

Thanks!
