I have an issue with tags on the main forums interacting with the social groups app. i am hoping that this is a known issue and there is a work around.
When a member creates a post and they set tags within the standard forums, sometimes those posts become placed within a social group and the path to the board is screwed. If a member isn't a member of the group it is placed within they are unable to reply to the topic.
When you look at the breadcrumb it becomes:
Board > Path To Original Board > Path To Social Group DIscussion Board
To fix, I have to use the full editor, delete the tags in the original topic post and suddenly the breadcrumb is as expected:
Board > Path To Original Board
and the reply box will reappear
Any ideas? We are having to edit a few posts each day.
As a secondary issue, is there any way to make the topics/post boards of a private group not be listed in lastest posts? I want to create a staff room using social groups for the addition communications advantages, but new posts show in the latest posts list. True the topic isn't itself viewable, but surely it shouldn't show at all for non group members?
There was a pfields error reported. I corrected that. The profile count is still not incrementing.
Can you tell me where it is incremented and what table it is?
Andy seemed to suggest that there was a possibility that other tasks might not be working. It is certainly possible that there might be tasks not working and I haven't noticed yet, so I am also really interested what other symptoms I should be looking for?
Actually, I have a member that joined on 16th February with 0 profile views, yet at the same time there is a list of people who last visited her profile lol This predates all those changes other than the upgrade to the latest version of IPB (from 3.4.4 to 3.4.6)
The views haven't updated for a few days. Can you give me an example? Are there other community tasks that I should look at?
My site is having another issue that I would consider unrelated... but maybe it isn't. I'll lay it out FYI just in case it sets of an alarm bell. My site also has wordpress installations on each subdomain running OptimizePress... which is licensed from a license server. That license server has been consistantly failing, where it used to work without issue. Weirdly when I test communications from IPB admin it works without issue.
I had tried to harden the server against w00tw00t attacks during the week. The site uses a varnish cache, though I think the forums subdomain completely avoids varnish. The alternative was to tighten up the server using iptables, but that seemed to be more problematic.
Any advice you can offer would be greatly received!
Since upgrading from 3.4.5 to 3.4.6 some YouTube videos that had previously displayed as embedded videos now display as only links, while others work perfectly well.
I tried clearing the media cache. Didn't help.
I tried rebuilding css and html. That Didn't help.
I tried rebuilding the skins. That didn't help.
I checked the links, and there was no rhyme or reason between youtube.com, youtu.be links, http or https.....
Then I went into one of the posts that displayed a link, instead of a video. It showed as a link. So I selected the link, broke the link so that it was plain text and re-submited the post... it worked!
So my question is in two parts...
Why did this happen? Especially in such a random way.
Secondly, and more inportantly.... how do I fix this? There are thousands of posts now with a link instead of the embedded video. I really don't have time or inclination to edit every one! Eeek! Can I force the posts to be reparsed?
I want to be able to send HTML mail if possible. I customised the standard template, and it sends fine for those who have HTML enabled. What I don't understand is why the option to send HTML mail and non-HTML mail is not obvious or maybe not possible at all. In several web progs I use the problem is solved by having two entry boxes, one for the HTML message (which would use the HTML template, and a non-HTML message entry box. The admin could then easily choose the default. For example, I would prefer to use HTML ONLY for sending out a newsletter to the community. I understand that the system cannot do that just now.
I would happily settle for being able to embed the non-html message in alongside the html message ( think it is called a multi-part message, I might be wrong!)
Any ideas or suggestions would be most gratefully received.
One thing I notice is that tables like ibf_blog_entries use fulltext indexing and so will not convert to innodb.... so can I have a mainly innodb set up with most tables being innodb, and keep myisam as the engine for fulltext indexed tables and still safely set innodb as the engine in the config file?
