  1. The Heff added a comment: [4.0.2] Your session.save_path (/var/lib/php/session) is not writable   

    I resolved the above by defining a new session.save_path. I'm not sure everybody would know how/be able to that though.

    Downloaded the file, put in the directory specified and encountered another error.
    ErrorException Object ( [message:protected] => session_start(): open(/var/lib/php/session/sess_o0t2q8hfa7ivporr8vvnof5r66, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) [string:Exception:private] => [code:protected] => 2 [file:protected] => /var/www/vhosts/eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/httpdocs/xxxxxxxxxxx/system/Dispatcher/Setup.php [line:protected] => 199 [trace:Exception:private] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [function] => errorHandler [class] => IPS\IPS [type] => :: [args] => Array ( [0] => 2 [1] => session_start(): open(/var/lib/php/session/sess_o0t2q8hfa7ivporr8vvnof5r66, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) [2] => /var/www/vhosts/eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/httpdocs/xxxxxxxxxxx/system/Dispatcher/Setup.php [3] => 199 [4] => Array ( [config] => Array ( [path] => {root}/datastore ) [path] => /var/www/vhosts/eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/httpdocs/xxxxxxxxxxx/datastore [INFO] => Array ( [sql_driver] => mysql [sql_host] => localhost [sql_database] => eastmidl_ips4 [sql_user] => eastmidl_ips4 [sql_pass] => xxxxxxxxxxx [sql_tbl_prefix] => ipb_ [sql_debug] => 0 [sql_charset] => [board_start] => 1323035370 [installed] => 1 [php_ext] => php [safe_mode] => 0 [board_url] => http://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/xxxxxxxxxxx [banned_group] => 5 [admin_group] => 4 [guest_group] => 2 [member_group] => 23 [auth_group] => 1 [use_friendly_urls] => 1 [_jsDebug] => 0 [mysql_tbl_type] => MyISAM ) [bits] => Array ( [members_bitoptions] => Array ( [members_bitoptions] => Array ( [bw_is_spammer] => 1 [bw_no_status_update] => 16 [bw_disable_tagging] => 512 [bw_disable_prefixes] => 1024 [bw_using_skin_gen] => 2048 [bw_disable_gravatar] => 4096 [view_sigs] => 65536 [coppa_user] => 524288 [unacknowledged_warnings] => 33554432 [pp_setting_moderate_followers] => 134217728 [pp_setting_count_visitors] => 268435456 [timezone_override] => 536870912 [validating] => 1073741824 ) ) ) [currentCookieParams] => Array ( [lifetime] => 0 [path] => / [domain] => [secure] => [httponly] => ) ) ) ) [1] => Array ( [file] => /var/www/vhosts/eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/httpdocs/xxxxxxxxxxx/system/Dispatcher/Setup.php [line] => 199 [function] => session_start [args] => Array ( ) ) [2] => Array ( [file] => /var/www/vhosts/eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/httpdocs/xxxxxxxxxxx/admin/upgrade/index.php [line] => 24 [function] => run [class] => IPS\Dispatcher\_Setup [type] => -> [args] => Array ( ) ) ) [previous:Exception:private] => [severity:protected] => 0 )It's also very worrying that this error exposes the contents of conf_global.php. The database credentials are completely exposed.

    I have a solid approach to SEO.
    Install IPSEnable search engine optimisationPost stuffMy website regularly hits the top page of Google and I have done nothing special for SEO.
    It is amazing though how important SEO is though, especially to those trying to sell SEO services...

    I'll give it a go.
    Thanks @Tom S.

    When enabling https for logins and ACP this is what happens to my ACP:

    Disabling https resolves the issue.
    Chrome on Windows.

    @Charles Thank you
  7. The Heff added a comment: [4.0.2] Your session.save_path (/var/lib/php/session) is not writable   

    I have this upgrading from 3.4.7 to 4.0.2. I successfully upgraded to 4.0.1 numerous times whilst testing, so this is new to 4.0.2.
  8. The Heff added a post in a topic: 4.0.2!   

    ​Aside from a small version number change, what's the problem?
  9. The Heff added a post in a topic: 4.0.1!!!   

    ​I don't think it's clear enough. I may see a bug shown as fixed but I don't know for sure if it's fixed in the version I am downloading. You may have a bug marked as fixed which is fixed in 4.0.2 and I download 4.0.1 thinking it'll contain it.
    It can't hurt for clients to know in which release an issue is fixed.
  10. The Heff added a post in a topic: Allow users to add Flickr (+others) images to gallery   

    I'd prefer they support at least the mainstream ones. Photography and art forums are quite common so I don't think I would consider this a niche.
  11. The Heff added a post in a topic: Allow users to add Flickr (+others) images to gallery   

    I've previously run photography forums on which we loved to host our own galleries, but this presented a problem around storage cost when there are already cheap and free storage solutions available.
    Similar to the request around putting YouTube videos in the gallery, I'd like the ability to make use of some of the available third party photo storage services already available. Photography wise there's:
    Flickr - https://www.flickr.com/ 500px - https://500px.com/ There are more but the two above would probably represent the most prominent services available for photographers.
    There's also sites like DeviantArt (http://www.deviantart.com/) that would be equally beneficial to be able to link to.

    You need to ask the plugin author. The best place would be in their support thread.
  13. The Heff added a post in a topic: Moderation Controls - Hide Post   

    It is hidden though, so only staff can see it. I personally find that to be better as my staff previously got confused between toggle content and unhide. 
  14. The Heff added a post in a topic: PLEASE add youtube and other media ability to GALLERY   

    Yep, this would be perfect.
    We were going to use Gallery for our Battlefield 4 gaming clan so we can show our battle exploits and stroke our e-peen, but without the ability to embed YouTube/Vimeo/Twitch it's a non-starter.
    It's literally, and I'm using that word correctly in this sense, the only thing holding us back from using gallery.

    Don't do it @Lindy, you'll kill us all!
