I have a class XenWordXFStats. Within the class is the following global and variable:

global $XF
$total_users= $XF->getBoardTotalsCounter();
The above works because I copied the getBoardTotalsCounter method from the XenForo_Model_Counters into the XenWord class file which is where the $XF comes from ....

Anyway ... I'm wanting to remove the global $XF, and copied XenForo_Model_Counters code and simply call the XenForo code directly. So, I stripped out the getBoardTotalsCounter from the XenWord class file and called it as below.

$total_users= XenForo_Model_Counters::getBoardTotalsCounter();
This returns an error --
Fatal Error: Call to undefined method XenWordXFStats::getModelFromCache()
I'm confused by this error. The getModelFromCache is not in XenWordXFStats (thus the error). Searching /library/XenForo there is getModelFromCache($class). So, I'm thinking that the $class is why it tries to call XenWordXFStats.

How do I get around this ?

Duh .. almost there . but interfering with XenReviews.

        $XFusersModel = XenForo_Model::create( 'XenForo_Model_Counters' );
        $total_users = $XFusersModel->getBoardTotalsCounter();
Disable XenReviews then this works. So, I must have duplicated other XenForo code in my XenWord class somewhere.

Update: cleaner but still redeclare error with XenReviews

$total_users= XenForo_Model::create( 'XenForo_Model_Counters' )->getBoardTotalsCounter();

P.S. your code is perfectly okay, so this is something to do with XenReviews...
Actually, I ran into this error before and it was my code in my XenWord class duplicated with XenReviews. But I don't see duplication this time.

Do a debug and check the files that are being included... XenForo_Application::resolveDynamicClass() caches the proxy classes so see where else the proxy class 'XenReviews_Model_Counters' is being called before your script calls the model...

Thank you for the idea. I started a thread few weeks ago on using debug in phpstorm to trace errors and to understand XenForo. I'm not sure how to use debug in this fashion - I usually just look at the error :eek:

I'll fuss with it today and see if I can understand.

Thank you. Tried and failed; The WordPress page loaded without any information. So - it's back to reading about debug for me :)

I appreciate the help.
