Anyone have any ideas?
I just tried deleting the tables associated with the contrib, to verify where the problem is. I recieved the same error after I dropped the tables from the database. (special_category and special_product). This leads me to believe the mistake is in the php code, which I have gone over as best I could (i would not call myself a php expert by a longshot) and could not find any mistakes. Everything is exactly as the install file describes and the admin/categories_specials.php looks OK, but I am guessing that is where the problem is.
Any known problems with the Category Specials contrib?
