Thanks for the suggestion JohnF but I am not really sure this has anything to do with the Custom Context module. Rather it’s specific to the Asterisk dialplan custom contexts, although it does seems to be an issue with FreePBX distro (at least for me).
If I add the above chanspy context in extensions_override_freepbs.conf then it’s loaded and works with no problem. However, if I add the context to extensions_custom.conf then it never shows up in the dialplan at all.
extensions.conf has these includes in it.
and extensions_additional.conf has these lines
include => ext-local-custom
Simply at a loss as to why it won’t load from extensions_custom.conf, which would be the proper place for it. I have plans to use the extensions_override_freepbx.conf file (for overridding a couple of contexts w/ html access for the users).
