After I activate the module I simply produced and visit the page its on, the page is totally blank, no errors (even just in debug mode). Its doing the work immediately in the line:

defined('_JEXEC') or die('Direct Access to this location is not allowed.');

I have removed that for testing reasons also it then dies in the next line:

require_once(dirname(__FILE__).DS.'helper.php');

I have incorporated the assistant file and checked the pathways during my module XML config and everything looks good. I have even used the require_once having a direct path map and have show up empty.

area of the XML:

<files>
          <filename module="mod_stocks_data">mod_stocks_data.php</filename>
          ...
          <filename>helper.php</filename>
          <filename>tmpl/default.php</filename>
          <filename>tmpl/index.html</filename>

What shall we be held missing?

Thanks.

It's strange you don't have any errors. You are able to pressure them to appear though. Try putting this towards the top of your fileā€”It informs PHP to report all of the errors it will get.

<?php 
error_reporting (E_ALL);

That's become me from the "Whitened Screen Of Dying" many occasions.
