  1. HeadStand added a post in a topic: TV Shows   

    I watched the first 3 seasons of Game of Thrones but then got annoyed with it because they made too many changes from the books and the books are always better.
    Currently watching: SVU (I am just addicted to that), Bones, Brooklyn Nine Nine, and Gotham. Gotham is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

    Email notifications are killing my Outlook
    When I try to open an email notification received from this site, Microsoft Outlook locks up completely and becomes unresponsive. It eventually opens, but it takes well over 3 minutes.
    This did not happen last week. I still have some emails in my inbox that I received last week and I can open those with no issues. Any emails I received today are killing me.

    Attachments staying in editor
    Just reported another bug and I noticed this issue. When I go to "Create New Bug", the editor is showing 2 images that I attached to other bugs on Sunday. I deleted them from the editor with my last bug report, but they're still here! I just can't get rid of them permanently.
    See attached.

    Not getting notifications from this site
    At all. Not a one. No daily digests for topics, nothing about comments on bugs that I posted. Zip, zilch, nada.
    Checked my notification settings ,it should be fine. Checked my spam filters, should also be fine.

    Last Visit does not seem to be registering properly
    Logged on to this site about 20 minutes ago (maybe more) for the first time since Monday night (8:00 PM maybe?). Hit "New Content". My preferences are set to show me topics since my last visit. I'm seeing 12 pages of topics, dating back to last Thursday. I have DEFINITELY been on this site since then.

    UTF8 Converter - IP.Content pages disappear
    I converted a client's forum from latin_swedish_1. After the conversion, none of the IP.Content pages could be found. I logged into the ACP and the Page Manager said there were no pages.
    The ccs_pages table was populated, but page_folder was set to null instead of to an empty string. Updating the value of this field corrected the issue.

    IPB->IPB converting forums loses parent ID
    After merging multiple sites, SOME forums end up in the wrong location (under different parents).
    Here is what happens:
    1. admin_convert_board_ipboard::convert_forums pulls records from the forums table sorted by ID.
    2. Since it is possible that some children will be converted before their parents, the parent ID ends up stored in $info['conv_parent'] (lib_board, line 677).
    3. After a forum is converted, parent_id is updated based on conv_parent. lib_board, line 760
    [code=auto:0]$this->DB->update('forums', array('parent_id' => $inserted_id), "conv_parent='$id'");[/code]Issue: conv_parent is never cleared. As a result, when the next site is merged, forums with the same conv_parent value are moved.

    lib_board line 760 should be:
    [code=auto:0]$this->DB->update('forums', array('parent_id' => $inserted_id, 'conv_parent' => 0), "conv_parent='$id'");[/code]

    Empty page generated in root
    1. Open IP.Content Page Manager
    2. Click on any page
    3. Hit Save
    4. Hit the browser's back button.
    5. Hit Save & Reload.
    The above generates a blank record in ccs_pages (page_name and page_folder are blank).
    If you try to delete that record from inside the Page Manager, it simply generates a new one it is place.
    Fun side effect: if you do not have an Error Page specified, users see a blank page. For example, if I create a page that is visible only to members, and I view it as a guest, instead of a "no permission" message, I see an empty page.
    The only way to remove this issue (thank you Marcher!) is to delete the record from ccs_pages and then truncate the ccs_page_wizard table.
    I found this on 3 different client environments - I am definitely responsible for triggering 1 of them, possibly for the 2nd, but definitely not for the 3rd. In short... it ain't just me. :)

    IPB->IPB RSS Exports do not convert properly
    After converting forums, the associated records in rss_exports reference incorrect forum IDs.
    lib_board::convertRSSExport does no conversion whatsoever. All it does is check for required fields, followed by a straight-up insert.
    What it should be doing is looping through each ID in rss_export_forums, calling $this->getLink, and then putting the IDs back together again.
    Suggestion: currently this piece is part of the forum conversion. Given that it's inside the loop, it is highly likely that the RSS Exports will reference forums that have not yet been converted. It might be a good idea to break this out into its own separate step in the converter.

    IPB->IPB Duplicate RSS Exports
    When converting the RSS Exports, each record is created once per forum.
    Example: I have a single RSS Export feed for Forum A and Forum B. Upon conversion, two identical records will be created in the rss_exports table.
    admin_convert_board_ipboard, line 508:[code=auto:0] if ( !$this->lib->getLink($export['rss_export_id'], 'rss_export') and in_array( $row['id'], explode( ',', $export['rss_export_forums'] ) ) )[/code]
    However.... lib_board, line 2674:[code=auto:0] $this->DB->insert( 'rss_export', $info ); return true;[/code]

    Due to a death in the family, I have been out of the office for the past several days. I am still catching up on my emails, PMs, and support topics, so please do not PM me if I have been "ignoring" you. I know it may seem that way, but please bear with me as I get back on schedule. Thanks.

    That free BB code table mod you wrote is a hundred times better than the one that cost $20...
