I am making custom shop module for my website and my script breakes all pages where it is. The command what breaks it is: $session =& JFactory::getSession(); (Code putted in default.php). I cant put this in helper as i update the value and i need the updated one. So what i mean with breaks, the template gets broken and leaves the module only. Thank you.

EDIT: The code

$session =& JFactory::getSession();

if($_GET['additem'] != ""){
    for($i = 0; $i < count($items); $i++){
        if($items[$i][0] == $_GET['additem']){
            $id = $i;

    $cart = $session->get('cart', array());
    $cart[count($cart)] = $id;

    $session->set('cart', $cart);

    $cart = $session->get('cart', array());


echo "<table class='table table-hover'>";
    echo '<tr>';
        echo '<th>Id</th>';
        echo '<th>Name</th>';
        echo '<th>Price</th>';
    echo '</tr>';

    for($i = 0; count($cart); $i++){
        echo '<tr>';
            echo '<td>' . $items[$cart[$i]][0] . '</td>';
            echo '<td>' . $items[$cart[$i]][1] . '</td>';
            echo '<td>' . $items[$cart[$i]][2] . '</td>';
        echo '</tr>';

echo '</table>';
  • JFactory::getSession() only gets the session object so I doubt this is breaking your site unless you've edited Joomla's core session API file. Could you possibly add a little more code to your question as it will most likely be something else causing your page break – Lodder Mar 2 '15 at 16:51
  • Didnt edit joomla stuff. Only my module. I commented the session part and everything went perfectly. Check edit. – Stepan Fedotov Mar 2 '15 at 16:52
  • If you use $session = JFactory::getSession(); var_dump($session); exit; .... do you get any data returned? – Lodder Mar 2 '15 at 17:04
  • Yes i do. $session works. but $session/$session->get/$session->set takes too much resources or something that loads the page long and breaks it. – Stepan Fedotov Mar 2 '15 at 17:11

Infinite for loop...

for($i = 0; count($cart); $i++){

should be

for($i = 0; $i < count($cart); $i++){

Forgot the $i < count.

  • Can you show what actually fixed it? – David Fritsch Mar 3 '15 at 15:18
  • Second for loop. for($i = 0; count($cart); $i++){ to for($i = 0; $i < count($cart); $i++){. Forgot the $i < count. – Stepan Fedotov Mar 3 '15 at 15:24
