I'm having problems using weight enabled node with dynamic query. From my module code:

// Fetch the data from the database, ordered by weight ascending.
  $select = db_select('node', 'n');
  // Join tables
  $select->join('weight_settings', 'ws', 'n.type = ws.type');
  $select->join('weight_weights', 'w', 'n.nid = w.entity_id');
  $select->fields('n', array('title', 'nid', 'type'));
  $select->fields('w', array('weight'));
    ->condition('n.status', '1')
    ->orderBy('weight', 'ASC');
  $select->range(0, 50);

If I create a new node with the standard node edit form and accept a default weight = 0, then this new node will not be included in the results of this query. Looking in the database I discovered that at submit a record for the node was not being saved to {weight_weights}.

My work-around was to adjust the content type's default weight to equal '-1'. This saved a value to {weight_weights} and consequently returned the new node as part of the result.

I'm filing a bug, but realize that I also may not be constructing the query correctly. If the latter, recommendations are most welcome.

Also, I noticed that the revised default weight value was not being captured by Features. See http://drupal.org/node/1589948

Since the fix I'm getting a PDOException upon saving nodes, because the third field in the weight_weights table is empty but not null. I have temporarily and dirty fixed it like this. It works, but the problem maybe lies elsewhere...

I'm unable to reproduce the error. Could you provide a little more info about your configuration? One thing to check is that the default weight is being applied to nodes when creating them.

Thanks for your response. Actually it was a node of a content type where I haven't activated weight at all.
What would you like to know about my configuration? It's a Drupal 7.14 installation on Linux with Apache 2, PHP 5 and MySQL 5.

That's all I needed, thanks! This has been fixed and committed.

Marked #1602692: Undefined property weight_weight in weight_node_insert() (line 342 of weight.module) as duplicate of this issue.

And adding this error message, which is fixed by this commit for the sake of people searching on error messages:

Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$weight_weight in weight_node_insert() (line 342 of /var/www/mysite/sites/all/modules/contrib/weight/weight.module).

This is not fixed at all. I downloaded the latest version and still get the errors:

I regularly import nodes and am getting errors all over the place due to the weight module. It's simply unacceptable.

P.S. it seems to be fixed in the dev version. Using that one now. I hope that it will be merged quickly to the release version!

Version:7.x-2.0-rc2» 7.x-2.1

I updated to weight 2.1 but encountered this issue again. It only appears when you save a node programmatically which doesn't have a weight explicitly assigned to it, or has an empty value assigned to it. I thought this was fixed in 2.1, but I reviews the code and saw no changes in the _weight_set_weight function. Imho, in this function, there should be a check; either refusing to save the value to correct it to the default when it is incorrect. Right now, I get the following error on saving a general page node (which does not has weight enabled):

How about the following solution?

* Set the weight of a node.
function _weight_set_weight($node) {
  if (empty($node->weight_weight)) {
    $node->weight_weight = 0;
    ->key(array('entity_id' => $node->nid))
      'entity_id' => $node->nid,
      'entity_type' => 'node',
      'weight' => $node->weight_weight,
      'weight' => $node->weight_weight,

I hope you can fix this soon. I've been having this issue with the weight module some time now and have reverted to using 'old style' integer fields which is a shame as the idea behind your module is great.

Could you give an example of the code you're using that is causing the error?
