I have Magento 188.8.131.52 CE installed and unaltered in my Uwamp localhost.
I was just casually testing some functions from the app/code/core/Mage/Core/functions.php file, by calling those functions in my root script as below:
<?php require_once 'app/Mage.php'; Varien_Profiler::enable(); Mage::setIsDeveloperMode(true); error_reporting(E_ALL); ini_set('display_errors', 1); umask(0); Mage::app('default'); echo Mage::helper('core')->__('any text to be printed'); echo Mage::helper('core')->now();
But when I called the
now method of the same
functions.php file, I got the below error:
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined method Mage_Core_Helper_Data::now() in C:\UwAmp\www\[magento-root]\test.php on line 11
I was astonished, confused and annoyed to find that even though
functions.php actually contains the function
now, it doesn't allow it to be called from any other file(or root script as in my case).
Please check here to ascertain that
now function actually exists in
What on the earth could be possible cause for this weird scenario?
