Magento Missing argument 1 for Mage_Core_Block_Template ::setTemplate

Posted by Damodar Bashyal on April 04, 2016

 

If you are getting this magento error. It's easy to find why you are getting this error: Just need to add some debug code:

Open file app/code/core/Mage/Core/Block/Template.php and go to function setTemplate() (line 111 as shown in error log) and add these lines:

if(empty($template)){
	Mage::log(get_class($this));
	Mage::log($this->getNameInLayout());
	$e = new Exception;
	Mage::log(var_export($e->getTraceAsString(), true));
}

 

before this line:

$this->_template = $template;

One important thing you need to do for this to work is, you need to set error reporting to 0 (zero) in index.php.

 

This is what I got from above code:

# here required param template is not passed
2016-04-04T00:43:48+00:00 DEBUG (7): Mage_Newsletter_Block_Subscribe
2016-04-04T00:43:48+00:00 DEBUG (7): newsletter_popup
2016-04-04T00:43:48+00:00 DEBUG (7): '#0 [internal function]: Mage_Core_Block_Template->setTemplate()

# this one is ok though as it's passing NULL as template param.

And the error I was getting was:

Magento Missing argument 1 for Mage_Core_Block_Template::setTemplate
