  2. bfarber added a comment: Code tags are not parsed correctly   

    I'm still not able to find a way to reproduce the issue.  How did you submit that data? When you hit the code button on the editor you're supplied with a popup to enter your code, and whether I use enter or shift enter it works fine. If I put a code box into the editor (supply some code and hit ok) and then go edit it, whether I hit enter or shift enter inside it I can't break it.
    Mark did make some changes to the parser that might potentially have affected this, although I don't think that's the reason.
    Can you give me step by step instructions how to create a broken code box?

  4. bfarber added a comment: [RC3]Autoembedded youtube media is no longer embedded after upgrade(From 3.4.7).   

    The problem seems to be that you used the '' bbcode to embed a direct youtube video in 3.4.x.  That is unexpected input and is not something that was designed to 'work'. 
    I've managed to add some code to the legacy parser to translate these, however.

    This means most likely a database error is triggering.  Yes we'll need to access your installation to troubleshoot, thanks!
  7. bfarber added a comment: Code tags are not parsed correctly   

    Do you have an example of a broken post that has a code block that is not upgraded properly?  Content in 4.0 has HTML breaks which is why we look for that, but if upgrades aren't reparsing correctly we can work on updating our LegacyParser for instance.  I just need an example.

    I'm unable to reproduce this.  It looks like we adjust the block_template column to a varchar(255) column on that step, and there should be an index on just the block_template column, so that should not cause any indices to overflow even on innodb.
    Can you dump your cms_blocks database table for me on your 3.x install so I can take a closer look at it?

    You're working too hard and too long!!! ;-)

    I'm happiest when When I see you online ^_^

  16. realmaverickuk » bfarber

    Sent you a PM, take a look at it ASAP :)

  17. bfarber

    Let us know what you think about 3.2. :)

    1. AndyF

      I shall :)

    2. Hennet

      say its awesome.

    3. Amy T

      I still wish the email for notifying me of this had the link directly to the status update instead of the settings. It would make it easier to find this. Plus the site is going slow.

    4. realmaverickuk

      Love it :)

    5. boboss78

      and what do you think about that

    6. DarkGizmo

      I think you guys really need to skin up the who's online area, it looks too bland as it is now and very un-finished/unprofessional. fix that and 3.2 will be awesome. :-D

    7. GoGators

      I liked it so much, I purchased it a few days ago. It really looks great and responds nicely. :D

    8. bfarber

      Thanks for the feedback everyone!

    9. Amy T

      you are welcome.

    10. Tripp_UK

      Apart from the bugs that's being fixed, fine. Just one major issue that's really bugging me. <-- That

    11. JennB

      We love 3.2 BUT...really would like to see a global sidebar :) Do you have an ETA on when that feature will be released?

  18. DarkGizmo » bfarber

    If you have an IP.Downloads license and are interested in testing the pre-release, please see this topic for more information:

    1. Glumbo

      Link not working?

    2. .Peter

      I thought this was going to be Contributor thing.

    3. TheRevTastic

      I already asked that in a post, it was answered too.

    4. .Ian

      open to all now

    5. AndyF

      '[#10342] We could not determine which forum this topic is in.'

    6. .Ian

      Can see the post, but nothing on the qa page.

    7. AndyF

      My perms are different though ;) , although I should be able to see that topic. Hmmm.

    8. .Ian

      thought perms went out with Dalglish ;)

    9. AndyF


    10. bfarber

      The link will only work for those with an active license. If you can't see the file on the QA page, it means you don't have an IP.Downloads license. So, to summarize...If you have an ACTIVE IP.Downloads license, you may participate in QA testing the IP.Downloads release which is now available.

      Downloads - Purchased: 25 Aug 2010; Renewal: 24 Feb 2011 - mind you just realised I cannot open posts in the downloads support forum. Will log a ticket.

    12. bfarber

      Yes, if you can't access the downloads support forum, that is an indication the forums aren't seeing your license. Can always try logging out and back in, as well, since that's when your permissions get resynchronized.

  25. AndyF » bfarber

    He did tell me once, although I've forgot. Refers to Keith iirc.
