    Hi folks,

    I have an add-on which extends data writer. The hint used is "XenResource_DataWriter_Update"

    In my _postSave function I can see the resource_id when a resource is added but the discussion_thread_id is always zero.

    My code:
        $f = $this->getModelFromCache('XenResource_Model_Resource');
    Here is what I get when I get a resource in the function:
        [resource_id] => 312
        [title] => sdf
        [tag_line] => asdfasf
        [user_id] => 1
        [username] => Crispin
        [resource_state] => visible
        [resource_date] => 1469051740
        [resource_category_id] => 6
        [current_version_id] => 0
        [description_update_id] => 0
        [discussion_thread_id] => 0
        [external_url] => 
        [is_fileless] => 0
        [external_purchase_url] => 
        [price] => 0.00
        [currency] => 
        [download_count] => 0
        [rating_count] => 0
        [rating_sum] => 0
        [rating_avg] => 0
        [rating_weighted] => 3
        [update_count] => 0
        [review_count] => 0
        [last_update] => 1469051740
        [alt_support_url] => 
        [had_first_visible] => 1
        [custom_resource_fields] => a:0:{}
        [prefix_id] => 0
        [icon_date] => 0
        [tags] => a:0:{}
    If I hardcode a previously saved id, 300, I do get the value back.

    Why is it not available the way I am doing it? I'm really confused. :(

    Is the resource category setup to create a thread in a forum when a resource is created?

    Doh - should have said - yes, it is. The thread is created, I can see like normal. Just the id is not updated in the array.

    I've done some more digging.

    In XenResource DataWriter there is a function called _insertDiscussionThread. It is this which sets the thread id after creating the thread. This is called by the _postSave function in datawriter.

    If I put a debug print in there and a debug print at the bottom of my _postSave function I can see that my _postSave function is called before the the real one. This is why it's not populated.

    My function looks like this:
    class Crispin_Bla_DataWriter_DataWriter extends XFCP_Crispin_Bla_DataWriter_DataWriter
        public function _postSave()
            // call parent
    Am I simply just calling it wrong?

    I'm assuming you're doing parent::_postSave() before your code?

    If you are, that's a strange one, and I'm not 100% sure what would cause it...

    Yup. Parent save is the first line of my function.

    Is my function actually overriding the real postsave? I don't think it is. They appear to be running sequential.
