@Kindred:  Thank you for removing the attachments from the post 3 posts ago!

I'm so confused. I'm still getting this:

I can't seem to get this to work. After installation, hovering over 'Profile' just gives me 'Summary', 'Account Settings' and 'Forum Profile'. :(
Please do not PM me for support.

Hmmm....  I'm getting the same thing on my website, but not on my localhost test forum....  For some reason, the cache isn't being read.  I've confirmed the existance of the cache file, but it won't read on my website....

Uploaded v2.3 - November 8th, 2016
o Fixed SMF update bug that prevents unserializing strings longer than 4096 bytes.




@Everybody:  I figured out what is going on with the SMF cache in the upgrade from 2.0.11 to 2.0.12.  In Sources/Subs.php in the _safe_unserialize function, you should removing these lines out:

// Input exceeds 4096.
if(strlen($str) > 4096)
return false;

Version 2.3 makes this change automatically, so that the cache works again....

UPDATED:  This post has been rewritten to say "remove" instead of "remove or comment out", as the official SMF 2.0.12 download itself does not have those lines in the Sources/Subs.php file....

Kindred

Ummmm... that is going to conflict with the official fix...

What would you suggest then?

No change Dougie. And I did clear browser cache.

Steve

Sorry for the double post.

I just reinstalled v1.9 and it works perfectly. Same with the Lazy Admin Menu mod. Installing v1.15 makes it work correctly for me.

Uploaded v2.4 - November 12th, 2016
o Fixed issue where menu wasn't changed because no caching of menu could be done.
o Added code to stop bans from Forum Hard Hit mod while using this mod.




@Steve:  Under 2.0.12, the get cache function wasn't returning the results I had stuffed into the cache, and since the mod couldn't retrieve the cached menu, it didn't update the top menu.  This version fixes this issue by doing what the version 1.x did: trying to pull the cached version, and failing that, rebuilding the menu by calling the necessary functions, version 2.x-style.....

Steve

Woot! Works a treat! Thanks dougie!

Now, if the Lazy Admin menu would work ... :P

...it sounds like an easy mod to build, considering almost all the work has already been done within the profile source code.  All that would really be left for writing such a mod is the new template and a minor function addition....
Looking forward to that then
It's been approved and is available here.
Sorry about the delay in responding....  That mod overhauled for functionality, with Participation and User Created topics are now available in that mod.

SMiFFER

Many thanks.
Greatly appreciated.

Will take a look right now.
At least these 16 (getting more???)steps must be completed for SMF2.1 Final.
Last Full Version: 2.0 Final released more than 10 years ago on 20110604

Uploaded v2.5 - February 17th, 2018
o Now uses safe_serialize/safe_unserialize functions when available.
o Added dropdown box in Profile => Look and Layout to control mod per user.




@Everybody:  This is a security update.  Version 2.4 shall remain available to download through the mod page until I get confirmation from one user that it works (or not) for him/her.
