  1. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Shirley we'll have a release soon?   

    ​It's possible moving the site would cause indexes to be missing, if the database itself was not exported correctly. You should not lose what they did already, though I'd be interested in taking a look and comparing with what I have in my development environment. The support tool in the Admin CP will check your database for any potential database issues, though like I said... I'd be interested in taking a look myself.

    Calendar - Share Location
    I think this may be an issue with Firefox itself, but I'm not sure. When you are prompted to Share your location while submitting an Event, the popup never goes away.

  4. Ryan Ashbrook added a comment: Sphinx broken from 3.4.6 to 3.4.7 (latest download of 3.4.7)   

    I would suggest submitting a support request then - the only known issue with Sphinx (that I am aware of) would be the one Stuart linked too.

  6. Ryan Ashbrook added a comment: [UTF-8 Converter] Browser method, Archive tab, error after first step   

    This was due to a race condition during the rename where-by renaming the UTF8 table would begin before the original table rename finished.
  7. Ryan Ashbrook added a comment: [UTF-8 Converter] says external archive DB is already at UTF-8, but it isn't.

  9. Ryan Ashbrook added a comment: RC6 / Plugins / Toggling plugin off not deletes widget   

    I just hit this myself. It seems enabling / disabling a plugin is not properly clearing caches / data storage, so templates will still call and reference the plugin despite being disabled.
  10. Ryan Ashbrook added a comment: [RC5a to RC6] (!) Can't edit any posts   

    I can reproduce this on my site, locally, and I have escalated a ticket showing the problem. Strangely, I cannot reproduce here.
  11. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: ACP New Download notifications   

    There is a task that runs once a day which checks to see if there is a newer version.

    Submitting Paid file with a cost of 0
    In Downloads, if you submit a file and select "Paid" but set the Cost as 0, then it always the submission to proceed through. As a result, when you view the file the button will say Buy Now, however clicking it will result in the following error:
    Argument 2 passed to IPS\nexus\Invoice\_Item::__construct() must be an instance of IPS\nexus\Money, null given, called in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/ips4dev/applications/downloads/modules/front/downloads/view.php on line 175

  13. Ryan Ashbrook added a comment: [RC3] Custom field date displayed wrong   

    The problem here is that the Date Form helpers does not appear to handle timestamps beyond the Unix Epoch (ex: -298080000).
    In the formatValue method, the following exception is caught on approximately line 178 when attempting to construct a DateTime object from that value:
    DateTime::__construct(): Failed to parse time string (-298080000) at position 7 (0): Unexpected character
    Browsers handle this differently, however - Chrome will simply display the placeholder text, whereas Safari and Firefox will display the actual negative timestamp.
  14. Ryan Ashbrook added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    Commerce - Cannot save Phone Number field.
    Attempting to edit, then save, the default Phone Number field throws the following error: http://screencast.com/t/GKoB8Npq8mf
    The problem here appears to be that the central CustomField class is not set up to accommodate for a custom column name, so when saving it will always try to adjust field_1 rather than the defined cm_phone.
    Adding a new field works as expected, so it is just limited to this single one.

  15. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Confusing language in New Content "Items" twice   

    This is specific to our site, actually. The "Items" in the Content Type menu actually refers to the records on the Feature Plan page.
    "items" under the Filters menu refers to the individual record.
    I don't disagree on the idea, though, just wanted to clarify.

    Wow. 8 Million posts. I just did a 5 million post forum the other day and it took 30 hours.
    Also, thanks. I've not yet gotten the 8-string monster, but I will someday. :)

    (Oops. Just saw "Conversions specialist" in your About Me - maybe we'll tackle Ultimate Metal one day...scary thought (huge!) )

  8. Creation Nation » Ryan Ashbrook

    Hey dude! Just saw your recent pics in the gallery (8 string insanity!), thought I would say hello :)
    I run UltimateMetal.com - am buying IPB to start another community to see how it rolls. What do you do at IPB?
