so it's there but it's not visible externally

Post by elffinarts » Sun Apr 03, 2005 8:03 pm

so the blog's there but it's not visible externally, and the file upload refused to work....

I can see my blog if I click on My Blog but clicking on Blogs from the main phpbb forum gives this error
Information
No Blogs have been created. Please wait for one to be created or create one yourself.


so that's odd since I have three blogs uploaded already. O.o
and I've no idea why the image upload provides me with no error statements but also shows no images.
the files are definitely uploading just fine... thats easily checked through FTP... but what do i need to edit for the files to display?

I am not sure if this is the CHMOD issue I read about a few times in the last 42 or so pages... I'm new to this and its my first modding foray.

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone found a way to integrate the buddy list into the blog mod. I mean the friends from a user's contact list mod to be added automatically as friends for weblogs.

Or has anyone any suggestions on how to achieve this by hacking the script? I looked for a while, but I couldn't figure it out.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,
hallipa

I just installed the mod, and the following i sthe error I get when going to my forum:

Could not query weblogs information

DEBUG MODE

SQL Error : 1054 Unknown column 'w.weblog_id' in 'where clause'

SELECT w.*, u.*, e.* FROM phpbb_users u, phpbb_weblogs w LEFT JOIN phpbb_weblog_entries e ON e.weblog_id = w.weblog_id WHERE u.user_weblog = w.weblog_id AND w.deleted = 0 AND e.entry_deleted = 0 AND e.entry_time < 1112898863 ORDER BY e.entry_time DESC

Line : 736
File : functions_weblog.php

TheHuff, it looks like you didn't make any SQL changes at all. Upload and run db_update.php

Yep, that's right, the 0.2.1 version is finally here.

There are some nice enhancements added to the mod as well as all the bug fixes for 0.2.0 of course.

The template system has changed, rather significantly. Version 0.2.0 templates will NOT work with version 0.2.1 by default. You should make sure that all the templates used contain these files, even if they don't match the theme (designers take note of the new files):
  • weblog_confirm_body.htm
  • weblog_message_body.htm

Some of the new features include
  • weblog.php?u=(username) - Great for those using mod_rewrite under Apache! Should also work with some special characters if the browser converts them automatically
  • [cut] code added - seperate lengthy posts. Use [cut]Link Text[/cut] to put a link at that point in your entry. All the text below that point will only appear in weblog_entry.php :-)
  • Icons Replace Text - Nice looking icons now replace the hardcoded text. Template designers can now use template variables usch as {U_EDIT} for the link to edit an entry.
  • Error/Information with Template - Error and Informational messages now appear with the same look as the rest of the weblog.
As before, replace your current files with the ones in the zip and follow the instructions in "upgrade_021.txt" (non-critical changes).

I don't want it to even be an option that guests can view or post to blogs...ONLY registered members. I know members can do this per blog and per entry, but how can I make it so that it's not even an option for anyone?

I am very interested in this mod. Does anyone know what is the largest site with this mod? How is the speed performance?

I have about 7000 members now.

Great MOD!!! Just got it installed and playing around to see what I can do. Very impressive so far.

Just have one question. I can't get the recent blogs to show up on the index page for some reason. I can see the cell where it should be at the bottom in who is online but it is blank. I have double and triple checked the index.php changes and it is all there. Has anyone else had a problem getting that to work? I think that would be huge to be able to know when something was added.

Thanks!
