  1. Ocean West added a post in a topic: Block PHP query   

    I am confused why is it now pulling from core advertisement and not from nexus_ads  why is there two tables for ads?
    ( i tried the above and it didn't work) 
    Also I don't see in the code how it will randomize the results?
  2. Ocean West added an answer to a question: Future vRevs   

    Now that the products are a "suite" and no longer have individual public version numbers for each App - Will all apps be upgraded every vRev or will the modules affected by each update be a bullet item in the release notes?

    what do i need to change in this 3x code that worked as a custom block but currently doesn't work in 4x
    $this->DB->build( array( 'select' => 'ad_id', 'from' => 'nexus_ads', 'where' => 'ad_locations like "%fmf_square%"', 'and' => 'ad_active=1', 'order' => 'rand()' ) ); $this->DB->execute(); $i=0; while ( $row = $this->DB->fetch() ) { $ad_ids[] = $row['ad_id']; } foreach( $ad_ids as $ad_id ){ $i++; $str = file_get_contents( "{$this->settings['board_url']}/interface/advertisements.php?$ad_id" ) ; $str = preg_replace('/\<[\/]{0,1}div[^\>]*\>/i', '', $str); if($i==10) { echo $str . "<br>"; } else { echo $str . "  "; } }

    seems that every level you delve into you have to re-assemble sidebar blocks.
    I wish there was a way to inherit the blocks settings from the enclosing parent, at least as a default then alterations could be made. 
  6. Ocean West added a post in a topic: Moving "content" Attachments Files...   

    when i had the system move files from one directory to another directory - it did not cleanup the leftover folders
    i have a folder for every month going back a few years most with just an index.html - but some still have random leftovers in them.
    Also since the system creates its own folders in the new directory, and then records this path to the database why not organize the folder by:  Monthly_YYYY_MM instead of the current Monthly_MM_YYYY the former will make it sort all years together in month order.

    [rc3] commerce ad title
    "title" should not be required field - i have to edit all the ads from the upgrade to fix the custom location - and don't wish to have to create a custom title for every ad.
    I would much prefer to know the Member - or be able to assign an ad to a member.

  9. Ocean West added a post in a topic: Queued Actons?   

    are all ACP actions queued up and then executed once the cron task gets around to do them - are there no immediate actions?
    I had done something then decided i didn't like it and then deleted the action however the item got a tag moving/deleting and its removal wasn't immediate.
    I had to wait for a slew of other tasks to finish. 
  10. Ocean West added a comment: [rc3] can't edit Ranks ( icons missing)   

    What is odd is, about an hour later I was able to open the ranks and delete the reference to the non-existent icon.

    yes but that's where the mod rewrite rules are

    check your htaccess and make sure the path is correct there too - 
  13. Ocean West added a post in a topic: [commerce] ads & invoice - Severe design flaw!   

    there is no reciprocal link between a purchase / invoice / renewal and preview for any Advertisement, that was purchased. (or a way to preview the ad image & link from this context) you have no reference to the image, that is associated to the transaction.
    Also are no users/customers are associated with the list of advertisements  - there is no way to know who's ad belongs to whom without having to see if the graphic has their name or compare urls. 
    What is the purpose of the "Title" and why is it a required field, it is not a field the end users enters - and forces admins to come up with a title should you need  to  edit it - which is now every time since we have to request users send us the different size ads back channel so that we can manually add them in, so it doesn't break the responsive themes.
     
  14. Ocean West added a post in a topic: Block naming...   

    Which is the correct  usage :
    The block key can be used in HTML templates and manual pages to fetch a specific block, for instance: {block=" square "}
    or
    when looking at the "tags" on a page it shows it as:    {block="26" title="square"}

    when will the previous generation learn not to put two spaces after periods in a sentence.

      I regularly find classmates who do it too... I don't think it'll go quickly.

      In scotland it's still taught as a fairly common thing to do.
