    An additional related fix for this issue will be included with 4.0.10.

    Reviews/Comments links showing when disabled
    Taking Calendar as an example, if you go to each calendar in the ACP and disable comments and/or reviews, the links to view these are still shown in the user's activity stream (and anywhere else like the site activity stream).  At a code level, we loop over content types, and if they support comment or review classes, we include those links automatically.
    It would be idea to hide those links when comments/reviews are not being used at all.  The same issue almost certainly exists for downloads and gallery.

    Database checker setting auto-increment columns
    Client has a table that is missing the primary key index on his core_message_topic_user_map table, and the map_id column does not have the auto_increment flag set.
     
    CREATE TABLE `forumx_core_message_topic_user_map` ( `map_id` int(10) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `map_user_id` int(10) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `map_topic_id` int(10) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `map_folder_id` varchar(32) COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci DEFAULT NULL, `map_read_time` int(10) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `map_user_active` int(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `map_user_banned` int(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `map_has_unread` int(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `map_is_system` int(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `map_is_starter` int(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `map_left_time` int(10) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `map_ignore_notification` int(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `map_last_topic_reply` int(10) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', UNIQUE KEY `map_main` (`map_user_id`,`map_topic_id`), KEY `map_user` (`map_user_id`,`map_user_active`,`map_folder_id`,`map_last_topic_reply`) ) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4 COLLATE=utf8mb4_unicode_ci The database checker sees this and wants to run the following query:
     
    ALTER TABLE `forumx_core_message_topic_user_map` CHANGE COLUMN `map_id` `map_id` INT (10) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT COMMENT ''; 
    This results in: Incorrect table definition; there can be only one auto column and it must be defined as a key
     
    The database checker needs to notice this situation and prompt to create the primary key at the same time.  Ticket 920795.

  6. bfarber added a comment [4.0.8] Upcoming Events widget shows concluded events   


    This is a completely separate thing - we don't try to style the events to represent the hours they occur during (what if an event occurred over the course of "5 minutes"?  They'd never display right.)
    We are discussing ways to counter the original issue internally.

  9. bfarber added a comment Numeric searches don't find results   

    MySQL fulltext searching considers a period a stopword character, so it is trying to search for 4 or 0 or 9, and since a word has to be 4 characters or more, that will never find anything.
    This is a limitation of MySQL fulltext search I'm afraid.  I'll bring it up internally to see if there are any improvements we can make as we rework search in an upcoming release.

    Do you have a link to your demo so I can see?

  12. bfarber added a comment homepage sidebar disappeared   

    I can't reproduce.  Please submit a ticket if you're experiencing issues.  Note that there is a "sidebar" location at the footer of the page as well, which may be what is showing here (I can't tell for sure from the screenshot).

    They are for me presently.  Generally this means a javascript file isn't loading for some reason.
