  1. bfarber added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    Many images in the same container with the same date
    In earlier versions of Gallery you could bulk import images and the process occurred fast enough that many images can be imported with the same exact time stamp.
    This creates a problem with the next and previous images in the current version of Gallery.  If you have a container that has 20 images with the same time (for example) and you view one, the slider underneath the main image reflects that there are 20 images in the set, but if you try to slide next or previous to view all of the images the same images are repeatedly shown.
    An example is in ticket 909738 but it is easy to reproduce locally by adding several images to a single album and then updating them in phpmyadmin to all have the same timestamp.

  2. bfarber added a comment: Slow Gallery query   

    Reverting was even more intensive (the request was being killed and an EX0 error thrown after about 12 seconds, while with the changes it is completing but in around 10 seconds).
    I removed the entire table from browse.php and it was still taking just as long, so getting the list of items was not the problem.
    I'm working on this further via the ticket.

    Can you email me a copy of Output.php  there?  brandon[@]
    I can't reproduce this - it would be extremely visible and block the release if it were a global problem in the codebase, but possibly there is an issue with the delta build that causes this just for your site.
  5. bfarber added a post in a topic: RC7 out :-)   

    I can't see how that would be possible.  Can you submit a ticket if you can still reproduce?

    I just created and installed a plugin on an internal site today.  I can see the logic in the error you posted above, and I've corrected that, but otherwise I can install plugins just fine.

    Can you look under /uploads/logs/ and retrieve the log file for the day you got the error last so we can see what the uncaught exception was?  I'm not able to reproduce.

    I'm unable to reproduce this as a general rule.  It's possible you have a server limit on top of the PHP limit that is triggering the error.

    1) It disappears because you don't have permission to request RSVP in the calendar you visited.
    2) I'm unable to reproduce:

    I'm afraid I'm unable to reproduce - I just moved recently when I branched locally and my URLs updated.

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

      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.

    4. 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.

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