HI, there:

The mail function on the server seems fine, if I do recover password I can get the email. However, the Email Report is not working, everytime I tried "Send Report Now", I got the following error in application log:

Piwik_ErrorHandler(8, Object of class Piwik_Date could not be converted to int, /var/www/html/core/Date.php, 59, Array ([=> Piwik_Date Object ( => 1287591505,[=> UTC),timezone => )) called at [/var/www/html/core/Date.php:59]<br />

any idea what is causing this and how can I fix it?
thank you very much!


I couldn't reproduce the problem on trunk (i.e., no error).

On 1.0, using FF3.6, I can't get the 'Send Report Now' button to even trigger.

Steve: can you email us a stack trace? (if you opt to attach it here, you should filter the contents)


here is the trace in error log:

I don't know why line 59 of Date.php is triggering an error, but can you try the following change?

In plugins/PDFReports/API.php's sendEmailReport() function, change:

    Piwik_Date::now()->subPeriod(1, $report['period']),
    $outputType = Piwik_PDFReports_API::OUTPUT_PDF_SAVE_ON_DISK


    Piwik_Date::now()->subPeriod(1, $report['period'])->toString(),
    $outputType = Piwik_PDFReports_API::OUTPUT_PDF_SAVE_ON_DISK

yes! that fixed it. The PDFReports works fine after applying that change.
thank you very much!
