I have a problem for pagination in archive page:

first page of archive is correct

Code: Select all

http://www.comunitaconsumatori.it/forum/chat?mode=archive
second page (and next) of archive is not correct

Code: Select all

http://www.comunitaconsumatori.it/forum/forum/chat?mode=archive&start=30
There is another /forum/ .

How can I resolve? Thanks.

Hey dmzx and others. mChat is working now after I changed my style to another one. It seems that there is something with the We_Universal, that makes it not work properly.

Is you url rewrite on ?

Go to acp and then server settings and enable url rewrite and purge boards cache.
It works!
Yup, This fixed my issue as well.

To recap, go into ACP\General tab. Under Server Configuration, select Server Settings, then set 'enable URL rewriting' to Yes.

Test and verify.

This heavily depends on the server software and the ability to use rewrite rules. Imho it should work without.

I agree the mod should work without changing the server settings, but at least changing the server settings fixes it for some of us in the meantime. Missing avatars and smilies is annoying in itself, let alone having to refresh your page just to get them to show up after every post.

you are absolutely right. dmzx is one of the best in creating and/or porting extensions, so I say let the man do what he does best, give him some breathing room

I completely agree. I sincerely appreciate dmzx's efforts.

yep, dmzx is doing an awesome job :D

just keep in mind that not all extension issues are problems with the extension itself. some issues are in the core phpBB code and getting them fixed can be a time consuming process ;)

That's why I said that it works very good besides these little bugs.
I'm confident dmzx will deliver on awesome extension when he has time to finish it.

Way to check whether your server supports URL rewriting:

1. Create a simple .php file

Code: Select all

<?php
phpinfo();
?>
2. Navigate browser to the created .php file
3. Search for string "mod_rewrite". (I have it under apache2handler -> Loaded Modules)

Some more info here

I'll admit, I was apprehensive about doing what you stated at first, because I was worried if I turned it on, and my provider did not support URL rewrite, my forums would stop working, and I would not be able to get back into the ACP to turn url rewrite back off.

Lol,then instead of numbers 1 and 2 one would have:
- download the extension
- copy it to the correct folder
- install it via the ACP
:)

I wanted to know in advance whether on the real forum server it will work since it was not on my testing forum.
