Re: Image Manager Problems

Two more oddities:

On my dev site, I have no issues with this at all.

On my main site, this problem seems to extend to many other parts of the administrative menu. I am unable to change most of my general preferences in any of my other modules. Almost as if the (submit) part of the forms are broken.

Re: Errors after 2.5 Upgrade

Just to close this out ... the main issue was resolved. What I found out was there was not enough memory being allocated to PHP, so it would choke and die. I don't remember exactly how I found this out, but that's what the problem was.

The other component has more to do with providing a compressed output from Apache to the client in order to save bandwidth. I haven't stored any images in the database in any recent XOOPS versions.

Image Manager Problems

I'm curious if anyone else has run into issues with using the Image Manager in 2.5.

I can't think of any changes I've made in the last week, but when I attempt to upload a new picture into one of my categories, I can hit submit and it doesn't seem to have processed the upload at all, and just brings me back to the category in the manager.

This is very strange and I was wondering if anyone else has run into this sort of issue before.

Re: Spam User Accounts

I've been getting a few of those too.

What I've been doing is writing at the bottom of the disclaimer that a certain field needs to have something in it. The field is technically optional, and spam bots have so far left it blank.

What I would like to see would be in my activation email to actually bring up a link to view the profile instead of just activating it blindly. Then again, I don't get a whole lot of new user attempts.

CAPTCHA & Chrome

I'm not sure if anyone has had a similar problem, but I did have a friend let me know last night that he was unable to register on my site with Chrome as it was telling him he had an invalid confirmation code from the CAPTCHA output.

I tried it on Chrome as well and was able to duplicate the effect, but it seemed to work fine in Safari and Firefox.

Has anyone heard much on this and if so, what kind of information would be needed to try and troubleshoot this kind of issue?

I almost never use joins. My DB instructor didn't get too much into them, and one DBA I used to work with found their behavior less than optimal on some systems. In my case, I found it very difficult to follow JOIN statements when dealing with more than two tables.

I've always done an extended SELECT statement whenever I've needed to return one row with values from two:

// Look for and list intros for each mount point.
$query2 "SELECT x.sequence as sequence, x.intronum as intronum, y.filename as filename ";
$query2 .= " FROM ".$xoopsDB->prefix("uhqiceauth_intromap")." x,";
$query2 .= $xoopsDB->prefix("uhqiceauth_intros")." y ";
$query2 .= " WHERE x.server='".$row['server']."'";
$query2 .= " AND x.port='".$row['port']."'";
$query2 .= " AND x.mount='".$row['mount']."'";
$query2 .= " AND x.intronum=y.intronum";
$query2 .= " ORDER BY sequence";

What makes the join is the second to last line: "AND x.intronum=y.intronum", which joins the tables together.

Unless of course, I'm misunderstanding the problem.

Re: Problems with my 2.5.0. installation

I believe the GoogleBot honors robots.txt. Here's a good site which may be helpful: http://www.robotstxt.org/

Errors after 2.5 Upgrade

The first bug I noticed after upgrading to 2.5, is that trying to get into the profile section causes a seg fault on my web server. Not necessarily a XOOPS problem, but one i thought I'd feel inclined to report. Not sure what is contributing to this.

Next item up is that the Image Manager is not showing me any of my images, but only when I have GZIP compression enabled. I never had any problems in XOOPS 2.4.5 with this feature and would really rather save the bandwidth for the time being.

Firefox gives me the following error if I try to access the thumb module directly: "The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression."

Safari reports: "Safari can’t open the page “http://site/modules/system/class/thum ... 4c43b919a.jpg&h=120&w=120”. The error is: “cannot decode raw data” (NSURLErrorDomain:-1015) Please choose Safari > Report Bugs to Apple, note the error number, and describe what you did before you saw this message."

Re: The big problem I have whit XOOPS

I think we need a strong content module. I've been quite happy w/ News 1.66 for my own needs, and it does its job well.

However, I disagree that it should be in the core. The core should provide core services only with all other services modularized. For instance, the work done on the profile module has been pretty darn awesome which was stagnant before it was broken out. The modularity is what has drawn me to XOOPS and has kept me here after nearly 5 years. Maybe we can put together a suggested bundle of modules.

Module work seems to be coming out of relatively few developers nowadays. Thankfully, we've got a pretty dedicated core team, but the labor of love which is module writing takes time to do well. I'd name some names of talented folks we've either lost or who have gone dark, but I don't want to devolve the thread. :)

Of all the modules I've written, the UHQ-GeoLocate is the only one which I have written that I feel is functionally complete, and that does only one relatively simple function. The rest of what I've written is in various states of completion ... some of which may never be truly done.

Collectively, I think it's important that we be sure to managed forks better since there are some modules which have the same name, but clearly different revisions between authors.

Re: [XOOPS 2.5] Module dirname limit

I believe the actual cause of the error is more of a PHP limitation.

When I first started developing my UHQ series of modules, I used the dash, and as it turns out, in some parts of PHP that is a subtraction operator.

That said, it may not be a bad idea to add in another validation step, though this won't typically happen due to an end user interaction.
