  1. Nathan Explosion added a comment: [4.0.1] adding custom button to editor broken   

    Take a look at the contentsCss configuration for ckeditor - not tested it myself, but I believe it will help out:
    http://docs.ckeditor.com/#!/api/CKEDITOR.config-cfg-contentsCss
    config.contentsCss = ['contents.css', '/path/to/anotherfile.css'];
    see http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/410321-editing-ckeditor-config/#comment-2541330 for various ways of adding the above to the config.js

    Yes, your majesty. Done.

    I don't provide files for parts of the IPS software - you've already got the file yourself, plus the instructions on how to make the change. If you don't understand it then explain further what you don't understand - help us help you.

    The CSS changes most likely only change the display of what has been posted (I don't know for sure, as I've got no interest in changing this behaviour via CSS at all)
    I'm going to link to the topic where I added comments on how to configure the editor to change the behaviour of the edito - it might seem familiar to you.

    Boom - thanks Charles!

    [4.0.2] Your session.save_path (/var/lib/php/session) is not writable
    Your session.save_path (/var/lib/php/session) is not writable. You will need to contact your host to adjust your PHP configuration before you can continue. The above appears after clicking 'Start Upgrade'
    Normally, I'd go off and try to figure out why this was happening but as it was fine when I ran through a 3.4.7 to 4.0.1 upgrade, and the specified folder is fine and has session content being written to it without issue outside of this upgrade.
    To confirm - issue doesn't appear at all when running my existing forum, or upgrading to 4.0.1. It is 4.0.2 specifically that is triggering the above.

    [4.0.2] convertutf8 cli.php fails to complete (prior to upgrade from 3.4.7)
    Note: Conversion using 4.0.1 code works fine (v1.1.16 of the utility)
    v1.1.17 of the utility, however, results in the following:
    ---------------------------------------------------- Welcome to the IPS UTF8 Conversion utility (v1.1.17) ---------------------------------------------------- 66 table(s) are not UTF-8 and need converting. Use 4-byte UTF-8 Encoding (utf8mb4)? Some non-common symbols (such as historical scripts, music symbols and Emoji) require more space in the database to be stored. If you choose 'no', users will not be able to use these symbols on your site. If 'yes', these characters will be able to be used, but the database will use more disk space. [y] Enter 'y' for Yes [n] Enter 'n' for No y This utility will convert all the tables in this database to UTF-8. The converted data is inserted into new tables prefixed with x_utf_ and the original data kept.

    Don't delete anything.
    Just upload the content of the zip over the top of your existing installation.

    @Charles - update on my testing of the new file....all done. Considering I had previously seen it take 8 days on one of the RCs, and I gave up after 3 days with 4.0.0, this is a big improvement. I'll be setting things up for another test upgrade for when 4.0.2 comes out.
  10. Nathan Explosion added a post in a topic: How to speed up the Background Processes?   

    Update this morning:
    Pre new file:
    ~30% on rebuilding posts was done in 24 hours, with 3 cron jobs running at a 1 minute interval each with a sleep in place on 2 of them....so 1 task run every 20 seconds. Started quickly but had slowed to a crawl and was only increasing by .01% on each task run (so .03% in total per minute)
    Post new file:
    Initially ran with same cron setup for a few hours, and the processing did speed up increasing to ~.04% each task run (so ~1.2% per minute)
    Changed the cron jobs to run 1 task per minute only - up this morning, 12 hours after putting in the new file and rebuilding posts is at 61.36%
    Monitoring the increase on each task run now and it's increasing at a rate of .03% each minute.
    (Note: board has ~2.5 million posts, so .03% is ~8,400 posts a minute)

    ​You can notch it back down to zero now.
  12. Nathan Explosion added a post in a topic: How to speed up the Background Processes?   

    Of course - back to once a minute exclusively now.
    Since my last post, the % has jumped up by 4 so definitely seeing an improvement.
  13. Nathan Explosion added a post in a topic: How to speed up the Background Processes?   

    Already seeing a slight speed up - prior to putting the new file in place, the % indicator for rebuilding posts was 'climbing' at a rate of .01% each task run (I've got 3 cron jobs in place running every minute, but using "sleep xx;" to get a 20 second interval between each job) but seeing that change to a .04% incremenet with the new file.
  14. Nathan Explosion added a post in a topic: How to speed up the Background Processes?   

    Thanks - nice timing, as I started another test upgrade yesterday and processing flew from 0 to 30% in just under 24 hours but then started crawling and has only risen about 3% in the last 6 hours.
    Will report back soon.
