The issue seems to be an
unserialize() error. I wasn't getting notified before because CE suppresses error reporting on
unserialize in various places in
ft.content_elements.php. I'm going to keep digging to find out whether this is an EE issue, or what.
If anyone has run into unserialize issues with EE before, it would be much appreciated!
So, I have content elements rendering the content of entries in my templates. For some reason that I can't isolate, some entries are rendered without any output from the content elements tag.
To be clear, it works just fine on some entries, but renders nothing on some entries.
I've checked the database and there is indeed the appropriate data in the
exp_channel_data table. I've also checked the MySQL and PHP logs for something helpful, but nothing useful seems to be reported.
I'm not even sure exactly where to begin as far as giving helpful code. Would my CE snippet help?
Luckily this problem is only happening in my development environment, so there is a live site with the fishy content we could look at. The other issue is that I noticed this after upgrading various different add-ons and extensions, but even after rolling back the system code (via version control) and resetting my DB to a pre-update version, the issue persists.
Here are the extensions I'm using and version numbers and all that. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated! For example, does EE generate any helpful logs during the template parsing process?
EE 2.8.1 Content Elements 1.6.9 Wygwam 3.3 Assets 2.3.1 Low Search 3.1.4 Low Variables 2.4.2 Stash 2.4.6 Structure 22.214.171.124 Zenbu 1.9.1 Zoo Flexible Admin 1.81
It seems like there is some kind of error during the parsing process so EE bails on generating the data from the DB. I can see it in the table, but it's not showing up on the front end :(.
