Michael, after i upgraded my 3.3.0 forums to 3.3.1, right after, i uploaded the new files for 1.3.2 (i was using 1.3.1). When going to the ACP, i got an unusual prompt, where instead of the ACP, i was greeted with the same upgrade screen when making IPB upgrades. Except that it was indeed telling me to upgrade your app. So, i did what it wanted me to. I ran the upgrader and it was progressing nicely, when suddenly it all stopped and it showed this error:
Fatal error : Call to undefined method output::getAsMobileSkin() in /home/user/public_html/forums/admin/sources/classes/editor/composite.php on line 247
Now, i'm not sure if the upgrade completed, but i doubt it. I reloaded my main forum page and the shoutbox was missing from the main index page, however the shoutbox tab was still there and when i clicked on the latter, the shoutbox did load. So, how do i make sure that the upgrade process completed 100%? And why did i get that error when upgrading from shoutbox 1.3.1 to 1.3.2 on IPB 3.3.1?
I believe i found another bug, which reset some settings on the shoutbox after upgrading from 1.3.1 to 1.3.2 (it shouldn't change any settings). In order to make the shoutbox appear on the main index page again, i had to go to Display on? in the Settings: Hook: Global Shoutbox menu and changed it back to Board Index Page. It was reset to Every Page.
Found some anomalies (bugs?):
I'm using IPB 3.3.0 final and shoutbox 1.3.0. In the Manage Applications & Modules section of the ACP, next to shoutbox 1.3.0 it says up to date. But shouldn't there be a message there instead, telling the admin that there is a new version 1.3.1 out? So that the admin will know that a new version is available as it's not user-friendly to always have to check the marketplace to see if there are any updates. Please don't get me wrong, Michael, i for one, am very grateful for your hard work and i love to see new and improved releases. But the updating process would be much easier if there was a way to alert the admin from the ACP itself. Then the admin can just visit the marketplace to download the new version instead of having to constantly check the marketplace every day. This will also ensure that admins are informed as soon as a new version is released. Sometimes i go without the new version for weeks before i happen to come across a new version. Finding updates should not be left out to luck.
At the bottom of my board index, there are no list of members using the shoutbox, although there are members using the shoutbox. I have enabled the corresponding hook but to no effect. I just noticed this problem as i was checking your screenshots.
I was very surprised too, and disappointed to say the least. I thought it was intentional, but then it didn't make any sense. Why would the developers want to shut out members from being able to check which reports were filed/fixed/confirmed/etc, since it is the members who report the bugs in the first place.
Yeah, but unfortunately it doesn't work. It hasn't worked in ages, uses way too much resources, is plagued with bugs, and is not compatible with 3.3.0! The dev has even admitted that his mod needs a LOT of work and he might drop it or give it up to another dev as he can't handle it. Since your mod actually works, i was thinking that you could easily adapt it so that the similar topics are shown after opening a topic just above/below the fast reply box. You could do that easily since you appear to already have the code in place in your mod.
OK, i have completely disabled ATP (both app and hook) and i can confirm that the problems have stopped. The popup correctly displays all the tags used in a topic when i hover my cursor over "and 2 more..." tags.
Concerning the bug fixed in 3.3.1, you can refer to my Request ID 791785 which has been actually handled by 3 different tech people!
I have no idea why, but the same error has come up again, like before. I don't understand. I didn't even post anything and my forums are closed. I just hovered my cursor over a topic with "and 2 more..." instead of "and 1 more..." and it broke again. I'm not going to bother IPS support again, as they clearly told me that the problem was due to ATP.
This is the same error in the popup window:
Warning : App or area missing from classes_like in /home/user/public_html/forums/admin/sources/classes/tags/bootstrap.php on line 62
Fatal error : Meta ID missing in /home/user/public_html/forums/admin/sources/classes/tags/abstract.php on line 916
I was told that the fix was applied to my site, and the bug was fixed in 3.3.1. I'm not sure if they will release a 3.3.0 patch for it.
Maybe you could figure out what was fixed/changed if you had a look at my forum files?
