  1. Ocean West added a post in a topic: Naming Conventions   

     Thank you  generating folders folders as YYYY_MM - however ideally i'd like to see them as two directories = YYYY/MM
    ​Ditto - i have had a ticket open  (still waiting for a resolution) having issues with the file naming and folder naming for where files are stored. 
    however I am perplexed with seeing some of these file names: and afraid that on some systems your going to reach character count limits!
    And i am noticing many files being stripped of any human readable file name or reference to the id to the content area it was posted like _.0c823c042f8d5d43a1dcc3384508abf8

    Uploading Theme to when set as "DEFAULT"
    fastest way to site wide 500 error.
    Updating existing theme that is currently the DEFAULT.
    in a test site ( fmforums.net/beta. )
    i downloaded the "default theme"  - to have one just incase. 
    went to the them choose the "default theme" and the option to Update existing theme and with in a few seconds given 500 error.
    the option to update existing theme when it is the "DEFAULT" should be removed. If the bug that causes this error can't be remedied.

    [interface] consistent strings...
    each menu item should have its own independent string from that of the text that appears above the content and below the ad.
    (like the forums) you are able to change the text of the string from "Forums" to "Community Forums" or what ever with out it affecting the tab menu.
    this is not the case with all other apps. The other apps seem to use the same string for both the menu navigation and the title

    tagging or hash tagging is best served when its community driven - where others can easily assign on the fly a tag that best describes the thread. sometimes the original poster has no idea what they are posting about - especially on technical sites vs social based sites.

    this need a new "sound" and or ajax notification  because its not obvious that a new private chat was initiated

    Banners Maximum Size Not Saved
    When entering the values of the dimensions of the banner the values never save. 
    Also there are no Labels on the fields for the dimensions so its unclear which is height and which is width.
    I can't confirm this but once the field values are stored - then i assume that these dimensions are presented to the user on the layout before - they upload the image?.

    [4.0] Blog RSS Import Feed wrong author
    I've been having an issue - for a while in 3.47 had someone who's blog imported from word press - and it was all sorts of ugly - a ton of random html.
    Hoping 4 would solve it. 
    So i turned on rss import feeds and edited her Atom/RSS import and pasted the url from her blog.
    A second later it imported her most recent entries but ME as the author?!  - And not her as the author.
    So I deleted all the posts and then logged in as her and tried to add the URL in her feed but every time it rejects the same URL saying it was invalid.
    DO people who have RSS imports be in a group that allows HTML She is in a group that does.
    So i just now (while typing this) loved back in as me and added the url to her blog but again the every entry has me as the author.
    I had also had to delete about 600 duplicate entries on another blog as they were all posted as "guest"

  15. Ocean West added a post in a topic: File Path Consistency...   

    just leaving this here to hopefully have the core system be consistent in paths for uploads. 

    The system generated these directories, the monthly_MM_YYYY is the old style of file naming and still being used. The system also generated monthly_YYYY_MM and oddly it seems this is some 'cache' file because its a mixed bag of different files (attachments user photos etc - even attachments from support system )
    Ideally i would like to see
    its not really necessary to have "monthly" in the directory path.

      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.
