XF 1.5 Xen callback not functioning correctly

    I'm currently leading the move to XenForo from Enjin, as our community has outgrown it, plus I hate Enjin with a passion. I have lots of experience with IPB and MyBB, but not too much with XF, so excuse my ignorance.

    Using the following code to try to display the number of players on our server in the header of the forum:

    <xen:edithint template="header.css" />
    <xen:hook name="header">
    <div id="header">
        <xen:include template="logo_block" />
        <div id="notice">
            <xen:callback class="players_main" method="getHtml"></xen:callback>
    This is calling a class from library/scripts/players named players.php


    class players_main
       public static function 
    'MinecraftServerStatus/status.class.php'//include the class
    $status = new MinecraftServerStatus(); // call the class
    $response $status->getStatus('ulmc.net'); // call the function
    if(!$response) {
    "Server Offline. Try refreshing the page, or waiting a few minutes.";
        } else {
    $response['players']."/".$response['maxplayers']." currently online";


    Using this code, I get the following error: Could not execute callback players_main::getHtml() - Not callable.

    Using this project to grab players online, obviously, with some edits for our site: https://github.com/FunnyItsElmo/PHP-Minecraft-Server-Status-Query

    The rest of the files are irrelevant, but what am I doing wrong here?

    Where is your class located? It should be in the following location:

    I've now relocated it to /library/players/scripts/main.php. Still not callable, and when I set it up like you did in regards to directories, the page fails to load.

    If the current location of the file is library/players/scripts/main.php then the class needs to be players_scripts_main

    class players_scripts_main
    // Your code
    If doing that makes the page fail to load, then actually it's likely loading the script and something in your code is killing it.

    Yeah, didn't work, but I'm not sure what about my code could be killing it? All it's doing is calling another class which returns data.

    I would usually expect there to be an error if there is an issue executing the script.

    Enable debug mode in your config.php file and also make sure PHP is configured to display errors.

    I should have probably added that there's a chance the error may be logged in your XF Admin CP in the Server Error Log, too, so check there to see if any errors are logged related to calling this callback tag.
