Unless a user specified only specific forums, they will see in the newsfeed all forums for which they are entitled to read. So new forums would automatically appear and removed forums would automatically disappear.

OK, I think I get what you meant. Let me verify.

Here are the feeds of three users:

User #1 - All forums
User #2 - Forums 1, 2, 3, 7, 8
Guest - Forums 1, 2

1, 2, and 5 are visible to guests

Now Admin decides that forum 5 is required, and configures SF that way. Now the users get this:

User #1 - All forums
User #2 - Forums 1, 2, 3, 7, 8
Guest - Forums 1, 2

The above is what I think you are saying.

Now, presuming what I thought is correct, what the users should really be getting now is (this is what I was trying to say):

User #1 - All forums
User #2 - Forums 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8
Guest - Forums 1, 2, 5
Mainframe Computer Operations (8 years)
Mainframe Technical Support (5 years)
Tandem System Admin (8 years)
Tandem DBA (15 years)
What is the one real database? Tandem Non-Stop :mrgreen:

With the newest release the admin can specify forums that must be in a feed (or must not be in a feed) regardless of whether the user would select or not select the forums.

So this is correct if the administrator specified forum #5 in the ACP as a required forum.
User #1 - All forums
User #2 - Forums 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8
Guest - Forums 1, 2, 5

Did 2.2.15 to 2.2.16 then 2.2.17

Thanks.
I'm facing the same problem. View source gives a hint:

Code: Select all

<b>Fatal error</b>:  Cannot redeclare login_jfusion() (previously declared in /home/username/public_html/forum/includes/auth/auth_jfusion.php:20) in <b>/home/username/public_html/forum/includes/auth/auth_jfusion.php</b> on line <b>46</b><br />
But if we take a look at auth_jfusion.php, the function login_jfusion() starts at line#20 and end at line# 46

I repacked 2.2.17 at least once in part to address this issue. Please check smartfeed.php. The kill_session function in likes 687-710 should be:

Code: Select all

function kill_session ($new_session=true)
{

	// Kill the sessions we consumed. We don't want to use session_kill() because it updates user_lastvisit,
	// which we don't necessarily want to do since the user may want to visit the board later and see
	// messages in the feed as unread.
	
	global $db, $user, $config, $phpEx, $phpbb_root_path;
	
	$sql = 'DELETE FROM ' . SESSIONS_TABLE . "
			WHERE session_id = '" . $db->sql_escape($user->session_id) . "'
				AND session_user_id = " . (int) $user->data['session_id'];
	$db->sql_query($sql);
	
	// Allow connecting logout with external auth method logout
	$method = 'logout_' . basename(trim($config['auth_method']));
	if (!function_exists($method))
	{
		include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/auth/auth_' . $method . '.' . $phpEx);
	}
	$method($user->data, $new_session);

	return;
}
If not copy in this new code.

Mark,
I modified smartfeed.php in the forum root as suggested, but now IE shows the following message:
<b>[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice</b>: in file <b>/home/username/public_html/joomla/libraries/joomla/session/session.php</b> on line <b>423</b>: <b>session_start() [<a href='function.session-start'>function.session-start</a>]: Cannot send session cookie - headers already sent by (output started at /includes/feedcreator.class.php:695)</b><br />
Edit: Changed username in path

The message suggests you are using a Joomla phpBB integration. This mod was developed in a pure phpBB environment and was not tested with Joomla. However,this is a notice, and it can be ignored if phpBB or PHP is set properly.

I installed this but it's telling me no feeds are available for my site.

This can happen if you are not logged in and your board is has no forums which the public can read. In this case Smartfeed can only be used in authenticated mode.

This mod totally screwed me. Went through the install procedure. Now the board is unavailable and gives the error:

Code: Select all

General Error
Language file ./language/en/mods/smartfeed.php couldn't be opened.
Tried to uninstall and it gave me a tar file that was empty. So now I'm totally SOL.

My apologies. I write two mods, Smartfeed and Digests and somehow the Digests software got uploaded into the Smartfeed space.

Version 2.2.16 (approved) and version 2.2.17 can be found on my Smartfeed website.

Hi,

I have been using Smartfeed 2.2.15 which I had to manually install. I ran the automod installation for the SQL changes then manually updated each file. Everything is working fine.

I have been trying to do the upgrade to 2.2.16 and have made all changes listed in the upgrade, except the SQL changes. I have tried to apply the upgrade via the automod to make the SQL changes, but it just reports that it can't find the following;

Cannot locate File: ./../store/mods/.//./contrib/upgrade/smartfeed_2.2.15_to_2.2.16.xml

I have checked to see that the file is present on my server and it is.

Thanks for this great mod any help gratefully received.

I did not specifically test the upgrade with AutoMod, but looking at the code I see no reason why you are getting the errors you are getting. My suggestion is to make the file changes manually with instructions in the upgrade file.
