some questions about the extension

by edzela » Thu Oct 10, 2019 5:43 pm

Hi Ger,
firstly, thanks for the extension, it is very good, but i have some questions (please see the image with the numbers listed below):
1. How can I change the title of this page? there is any parameter to change it? or simply avoid it?
2. It is possible to get more fonts and size of the characters?.
3. When I try to login from /app.php/article/index allways redirect me again to login from the /index page which by default is the Forum. It is possible to use only the Login of this extension? It is possible to configure phpbb and make this?
4. How is handle the permission to create articles? I mean, Can I create a group that can have only permission to create new articles?.

Thank you very much for your answers.

That's actually auto-generated during installation to create a homepage. The only way to change it, is by running a query:

Code: Select all

UPDATE phpbb_cmbb_category SET category_name = "YOURNAME" WHERE category_id = 1;
2. It is possible to get more fonts and size of the characters?.
I only provide basic styling for Prosilver based boards. When you have another style, you should copy ./ext/ger/cmbb/styles/all to ./ext/ger/cmbb/styles/YOURSTYLE and apply changes there.
3. When I try to login from /app.php/article/index allways redirect me again to login from the /index page which by default is the Forum. It is possible to use only the Login of this extension? It is possible to configure phpbb and make this?
I'm not sure what you mean exactly. When I login from that sidebar, I get redirected to the article or category I'm viewing.
4. How is handle the permission to create articles? I mean, Can I create a group that can have only permission to create new articles?
Under permissions tab in ACP, select the group and set "Can post cmBB articles" (first tab)

I mean:
when I try to login from: http://{URL}/app.php/article/index
I am redirected to: http://{URL}/ucp.php?mode=login&sid=9e8905893f65accb3b10b67af87fada7
With the following message: The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again
And from here I login…

Any idea?, thanks in advances.

Regards

I have an idea where that could originate from, yet I'm not experiencing it myself. I need to investigate it.

Could you try it with prosilver style enabled for me and report the result?

Alright, got it reproduced and fixed locally.
Could you pull the latest version from Github: https://github.com/GerB/cmbb
You should purge your cache trough the ACP index after installing the new version.
