Not saving settings

by takufner » Tue Jun 13, 2017 1:50 pm

Hello,

I am trying to change some configuration in this extension doing the following:

1) I am going to ACP -> Extensions -> Contact Board Administration -> Configuration
2) Changing the "Contact Method" to "Private message"
3) Clicking "Submit"
4) Receive the success page.

And when checking the Configuration page again the contact method is set to "Email". In other words, the configuration wasn't saved.

But, if I go to MySQL and change the "contactadmin_method" in table "phpbb_config" to "2" I can have the configuration that I want.

After this MySQL change, I can see the configuration for Contact Method with the "Private Message" option checked. But, if I click submit, it comes back to "Email" again.

Where could I start looking for something wrong?

Kind regards,

I have the same problem. I will try and adjust it in the MySQL database as described above.

Just do these edits and it will work. Not sure how that failed.

I'm having this issue too and I just download from here on this site. Doesn't seem to have a new version here yet?

Edit!

Yep! The new version isn't reflected here on the website for the download link. That needs to be fixed. WTH?

Complain to the validators if you want

Then you will have to wait and if you don't want to wait, don't use the extension. Complaining to me will solve nothing.

I don't have to wait because I downloaded from Github. That's how I knew the versions were different. Big waist of my time to download from here and try to configure everything then to discover the version here is outdated.

You are preaching to the choir further there is no point in continuing the discussion
