The reason there are no update instructions included with the 1.0.2 release is because the only changes that were made between 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 were made in the MODX installation file itself. One of the "finds" needed to be revised to reflect a small change that was made in phpBB 3.0.6 in one of the required files. Therefore, since there were no changes made to the actual phpBB files themselves and just the installation file, there was no need to include an update file. Board owners running version 1.0.1 are just as up-to-date as those running 1.0.2, since it is only the installation file that was changed.
Also, using the version 1.0.1, one of my group leaders just recently reported getting the following error when managing the group:
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions_user.php on line 2549: Missing argument 9 for group_create(), called in /includes/ucp/ucp_groups.php on line 631 and defined
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions_user.php on line 2586: Undefined variable: group_position
Apparently, it is adding a 9th argument in functions_user.php but isn't providing anything for that argument in ucp_groups.php. Possibly, it's just throwing an error because DEBUG is enabled. But is there a fix? I don't see it fixed in the new version, just from looking over the edits, but I haven't tried it since i don't see the update file.
This was never fixed in 1.0.2, as I never even knew this bug existed before now. Thank you for pointing this out. I have devised a patch that should fix this problem for good. What was happening was that, when a group's information was updated, the update function in includes/ucp/ucp_groups.php
could not find a value for the $group_position
variable, as it was never defined in that file in the first place. I have changed a few lines in that file and all seems to be working fine now. The only foreseen side-effect of this bug is that the group that had its information edited via the UCP would have its group position reset and it would appear in the front of the group list in the legend. This is easily fixed by moving the group in the ACP back to where it was previously.
The Fix - Issue #003
I have created a MODX file which describes the edits needed to fix this bug. Click here to view the file.
imkingdavid, if you would please perform the edits described in that MODX file on your board and let me know if the problem is resolved. If not, I will search for another method to fix this issue, but I'm fairly certain that this should do it. Thanks again.
