[RC6]Categories hierarchy - sub-forums v2.1.1

Post by Ptirhiik » Sun Apr 03, 2005 11:28 am

Here is the new release of Categories Hierarchy :
  • Change between 2.1.0 & 2.1.1

    Functionalities :
  • administration index will now check for the latest version of the mods,
  • add a warning when a new reply has been made while you were editing/create a new reply to the topic,
  • add the ability to create topic title tags, with images or not,
  • topics moved gets their own topic folder icon, copied from the moderation button on viewtopic (templates/subSilver/images/topic_move.gif),
  • topic icons permissions are now based on a forum auth rather than a user level, allowing so to create specific auth for some (ie for groups),
  • re-add the unmark topic at bottom of viewtopic (is already at top) when keep unread functionality is activated,
  • fix the date type fields issue appearing with topic calendar CH edition,
  • calendar icon changed,
  • the install process now supports postgresql ( tested on v8 ), several scripts upgraded to enhance the compliancy with other databases than mySQL,
  • guests if authorized will be able to edit only the messages posted with the same ip than the one they are using, no more all guests posts,
  • "0 posts/topics + no topics" are no more displayed on index when the user can view but not read the forum,
  • add the navigation box in returned messages,
  • add the pagination to topic review area,
  • DST/UTC handling at user level,


    More technical changes :
  • topics_box has been splitted :
    • topics_row_box.tpl now contains what were between the topicrow begin/end switches,
    • topics_bottom_*.tpl contain the footer of the topic lists,
    • The width cells has been reviewed merly following the reddog's suggestion
  • in_admin/in_admin_ELSE switches are now always available from main scripts (sat by the page_header(s)),
  • add the <!-- INCLUDE xxx.tpl --> feature to the templates parser,
  • add the topicrow.light switch in viewtopic_body.tpl : this prevents to have to define row1/row2 in the internal CSS
  • change the way the data caches files are encoded,
  • all parent forum auths of the forum manager groups are now reported to the new forum when creating one,
  • enhance the pics & classes handling in templates,
  • add a templates/your_template/your_template.ini read to handle commands specific to a template (ie tpl var assignation)

I have translated the version 2.1.0. What are the difference between the language from 2.1.0 and this version?

I have encountered an error after file modifaction/upload on a vanilla 2.0.13.

here it is (for install_cat/install.php):
Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /home/dking/public_html/install_cat/install.php on line 29


here it is (for index.php)
Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /home/dking/public_html/index.php on line 27


Any suggestions?

P.S. I installed it with EasyMod after I did everything in the author's notes like it said to in the description.

Yes it is : there are no security issues found (except a minor one in the phpBB core code which is fixed with CH), but this new version will be required for any support or additional mods.

Ahem?
I see that that is being caused by $config->url(.... I made it $phpbb_root_path . 'whatever.'.$phpEx... but it found errors later on in both pages. What have/haven't I done?

> DKing : you must have a phpBB 2.0.13 fully running and correctly configured : here you probably didn't set the directories and/or cookies info as they should be in general configuration.

It was working exactly as it should before; I could view forums, topics, index, everything in the ACP worked fine... but since it was just a clean install, I'll re-upload all the files (not config.php, of course :P), and then I'll try to edit them again...

I'll report back when I'm done...

Alright... I re-uploaded the regular non-edited files, and here are my config settings: (I have the forum in my public_html folder!)

General Stuff
Domain: www.phpbb-mods.s1e.info
Server Port: 80
Script Path: /
Site Name: phpBB-Mods
Site Description: <blank>
.........
Cookie Stuff
Cookie Domain: www.phpbb-mods.s1e.info
Cookie Name: phpbb2mysql
Cookie path: /
.........

Nothing else seems to be what might make it wrong... is there anything wrong with the above info?

Something sounds wrong to me, between the domain and the script path, due to the www/s1e/ : I would expect the domain to be www.phpbb-mods.info, and the script path /se1/. I may be wrong though.

> danB00 : oh you were talking about the CH 2.0.x versions ? Actually yes, it is importat to upgrade, as the latest versions of php/mysql drives your board to a blank page if you are running an old version, and the new version is also damn quicker than the oldest :).

What I advice you is to build a test environnement (possible offline with products like easyphp.org or wampserver.com), and to get the hand on this new acp and new features : you will quickly see that it is actually simpler than the regular phpBB way when "you've got it" : only one place to set the auth on a forum, not 2 or three. The idea is : you create the forums, then you give a group (registered group for all users, guest group for guest, specific groups for specific access) the auths on them.

Hi, thanks for this great work you are doing.

I'm upgrading a very heavily moded forum from CH 2.0.4 with about 72 forums and sub forums. I'm using a development copy of the forum and the database.

I installed a new PHPBB 2.0.13
I deleted all the files and directories as instructed and uploaded the new CH 2.1.1.
I'm using a copy of my production database.

The update program seems to have run well with no errors.

Things seem to be working well, but the forum hierarchy is missing. I have a flat hierarchy. Do I have to go back and re-establish all of these using the admin tool?

What I mean by flat hierarch is that all of the forums show up in the index. None are sub-forums. To illustrate, here is my production forum:

http://electro-music.com/forum

and here is the CH 2.1.1 development forum based on the same database (an older version though).
