I just re-checked and seen the option for allowing comments is ticked on in the screenshot, now I'm not sure that is by default or not...

But it might be a good idea to add a permission in which the admin can control which usergroup can tick it on and off, so choosing if people can reply or not.

Regards :)
Regards, Matt.

Which issue is that, I can't see it in this topic?
Do you even read your bug tracker? ...

Oh right, sorry, I only checked this topic for your issue.

Yes, I am aware of the issue in the bug tracker and imkingdavid was/is working on them and I'll ask him if he has made any progress when I next speak to him.

Thanks for this great mod! :)
There is an option to create sub categories?

time/date

Post by wolfkin »

Am I the only one noticing that time and date are way off? On my testboard all blog posts are created on the 1st of January, 1970 at 00.00 without exception.

For test purposes I have no other MODs installed, so it cannot be a conflict with another MOD.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned it before, so maybe it's just my system behaving badly - although I cannot see how that should be :geek:

Ah! Didn't think to check github :oops:

Just a thought: I'm currently testing out on localhost, using XAMPP. My system is Windows, not UNIX. The MOD is using UNIX time. Could that be why?

Unix time is simple a (standardised) way to store time, which just as well can be used on a windows machine :)

To note, I fixed the timestamp problem, but the issue was that the timestamp was not being sent at all when the new post was being created (or a current one was edited), and a default value of 0 was being used, resulting in the January 1, 1970 date.

Unfortunately, that means that only new blog posts will benefit from the fix. If you wish to give an approximate time stamp, you will need to do some math using the current return of time(). It's return is the number of seconds that have passed since january 1 1970. So if you wanted to change the date to be last week, you would do time() - 604800 and then put that value in the blog_posted_time field for the blog post in phpMyAdmin.

I also fixed the issue with blog tags not being displayed when viewing a blog post, and I have removed the ability to disable categories or to delete the last remaining category (to actually fix the issue that arises when no category is available or categories are disabled, it would require much more work than I have time to put into this MOD any more, to be honest. I am currently focused on 3.1 development and porting to extensions, so those are my priorities).

EDIT: These fixes will appear in the next release, which will occur as soon as Unknown Bliss is able to get it all packaged and do a quick test and such.

Version 1.0.3
Yet another bug fix release.

You may download it here

Thank you again to the other co-developers Erik Frèrejean and David King (imkingdavid).

To update simply delete all your old files and overwrite them with these ones. There were no DB changes however I did add an empty 1.0.3 UMIL version so you can run DB update but it won't do anything.

No new files were added so you don't have to delete anything; just overwrite the existing files. There was one template edit in the three fixes I did today, which was to add a comma between the tags when viewing a blog post, so you will need to refresh the template after replacing that file.
