The latest version is 2.0.18. Try upgrading to a later version of XOOPS. Of course, don't forget to backup before hand.

BTW, you don't say whether or not this is a new module, or such. It's always best to follow the Troubleshooting/Debug FAQ and posting results from that. Always look to the last change you've made to the application or system.

More info will help us to narrow down to the problem for you. NOte, I haven't used this particular modue.

Re: weblog (problem adding group permissions)

I am running XOOPS 2.0.16 & weBLog 1.41

I think it's probably just some file permissions, but I don't know which ones? ..could also be that I have PHP version 5.2.4 ..and just found out that this module's developer was using php 4 so it might not support php5?


Are there any other good blog modules that will work for me?
Thanks

This was working for me till my site was updated to PHP 5.

Since then I cannot add categories or post. I found that there is a column in the table called reads which is a reserved word, since PHP 5.0, so changed it to readcnt everywhere, and there are two ints defined in mysql.sql with '' as the value which i changed to '0'.

I can still see all old entries, but cannot add/modify categories or post new entries.

If anyone has any ideas please let me know!

same here.. updated to PHP5 weblog stopped working.

I think it's something to do with the group permissions. The error on posting is 'Sorry, Only permitted users can post weBLog entries...'

Also the change group permissions in the module admin isn't working so I'm guessing something to do with permissions.

I couldn't see 'reads' in the reserved list, not sure a column name would matter anyway.

Would be good to get this going as it still seems the best blog module for xoops, the alternatives seem to be bolting other blog software onto XOOPS which IMO is inviting problems.

Maybe this code has something wrong (from admin/privmanager.php)
function addGroup($post) {
    if (isset(
$post['gid'])) {
        
$group_handler =& xoops_getmodulehandler('priv');
        foreach (
$post['gid'] as $gid) {
            
$group =& $group_handler->create();
            
$group->setVar('priv_gid'$gid);
            
$group_handler->insert($group);
        }
    }
    
redirect_header('privmanager.php'2_AM_WEBLOG_DBUPDATED);
}


and or this (from post.php)
$priv =& xoops_getmodulehandler('priv');
if (
$currentuid==|| (!$isAdmin && ($xoopsModuleConfig['adminonly'] || !$priv->hasPrivilege($currentUser)))) {
    
redirect_header(sprintf('%s/modules/%s/index.php'XOOPS_URL$xoopsModule->dirname()),
                    
5_BL_ANON_CANNOT_POST_SORRY);
    exit();
}


or maybe the class below? Bit beyond me!
class WeblogPrivHandler extends XoopsObjectHandler {

oh.. 'reads' is a reserved word in MySQL 5...

Maybe this is it.. will have a look later.

found the answer on this page.. http://janschneider.de/news/35/183

PHP5 has a different way of handling case for get_class(). The fix is to add strtolower() around any get_class() code ie..

get_class(somecode)

to

strtolower(get_class(somecode))


After doing this throughout Weblog it now works. It might not need doing everywhere (possibly just the add category, entry etc) but I did everywhere to make sure.

This is a great module, someone should take it over and maintain it.

i have installed weblog successfully on 2.0.18.1. My contents are in Unicode (utf-8) and it displays correct characters whi viewing and entering content.

But when i tried to edit a post, the content dhtml area displays the html value of unicode character. (蘩 etc..)

Is there any solution for this. Please help.

Thanks in advance.
