Problems - YET AGAIN!!! - after upgrading a WA product!!!

I've been having problems using multiple insert / update / delete behaviors with DA (2.07) since downloading the upgrade some time ago. With assistance from the Tech Support team (and acknowledgement that there was a problem that may be sorted in a later release) I've been able to hack the code when required and get around the issues until now!

Expecting the issue to have been resolved, I recently downloaded DA 2.08 (together with the fix for the helper files) and duly installed. Guess what - the previous "issue" seems to have been resolved and replaced with another!

I have a multiple delete option and now (thank-you) the RepeatSelectionCounter appears in the correct place to enable the delete action to work. HOWEVER there seems to be some problem in writing out the $WA_redirectURL as the browser is ultimately being redirected to a bizarre url consisting of what looks like the full path to the home directory (based on the username of my hosting account) and therefore resulting in a "page not found" browser error.

As the page is actually being redirected to itself (to view the records remaining AFTER the deletions have taken place) I'm confident that the page exists!

URL being generated by DA on action is:

Any thoughts on what I may have done wrong here or where the upgrade installation may have fallen over? I've half a mind to remove 2.08 and return to 2.07 and my manual hacking of code - at least I knew my way around even if it was a real pain to have to do some of the work that I bought the extension for.

There is a fix for this issue in the DataAssist Download center page. In the known Issues section, look for the "DataAssist 2: Support Fix - Page redirects created with DataAssist 2.0.8 are not working correctly" Link to download the fix.

alternatively, you can find this line:

if (function_exists("rel2abs")) $WA_redirectURL = $WA_redirectURL?rel2abs($WA_redirectURL,dirname(__FILE__)):"";

and comment it out:

//if (function_exists("rel2abs")) $WA_redirectURL = $WA_redirectURL?rel2abs($WA_redirectURL,dirname(__FILE__)):"";

Thanks Jason - I've commented out the line as suggested and all seems to work fine.

Just a point to note though: I downloaded the fix and copied the files as per the read me file:
"Dreamweaver CS4
C:\Documents and Settings\<Your User Name>\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4\en_US\Configuration\shared\WebAssist\ApplicationBuilder\Helpers\library.php"

before I started this. Have just re-copied the files and the problem still exists!

For now I'll have to remember to comment out the rogue line but would appreciate your thoughts.

To fix pages that have already been createsd, you need to copy that file to the WA_DataAssist folder in your site.

copying it the C:\Documents and Settings\<Your User Name>\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4\en_US\Configuration\shared\WebAssist\Applicati onBuilder\Helpers\library.php location will fix the problem for new files that you create.
