March 2014 Update
« on: March 04, 2014, 08:45:26 AM »
Time for the monthly update.

Most, if not all changes were bug fixes/small improvements. Here's a raw list:

- There's a lightbox pop-up for login.
- Now admins can choose to receive an alert message for whenever someone decides to change their email (admins must enable "send_validation_onChange" for this). It also fixes a bug where part of the profile menu was visible to logged out users.
- PM labels and overall PM functionality got some love and bug fixes too.
- Added new setting for Paypal Sandbox email.
- Allowed admins to delete a user's poll votes when deleting their account.
- The default theme continues to get improvements.
- Some HTML5 validation issues were solved.
- Added some extra reinforcements for deleting locked topics and posts within them.
- Profile fields were always shown as disabled due to a missing space. This has now been fixed.
- Improvements on handling DB ports during installation.
- The calendar CSS got moved to its own CSS file.
- Move the "Upload a Package" block to the top so users don't get confused.
- Hardcoded fields such as location, gender, Yahoo messenger, Skype, AOL and ICQ have been moved to custom profile fields.
- COPPA accounts are now included in the count of unapproved members.
- Allow linking of existing calendar events to new topics.
- When all messages on a topic can be shown, fixed the prev/next rel links and a "view all" link is now shown for search engines to follow.


As always, you can take a look at where the fun is happening: http://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1 and remember, due to the volatile nature of the repo, installing 2.1 for production is not recommended. You can, however, install it on a local or test site and give us a hand at reporting issues.
Look at them. They're just asking for it. Maybe the human race deserves to be wiped out.

Thanks for the update ;)

But clean install hangs between step5 and step6 so the admin user is not created in the database !!

The upgrade from 2.0.7 won't work eather as the database changes hangs on part 2/2 step 15 to 31 and returns an error to restart process from that step but nogo further...

just to let you devs know, took the 2-1 release from last night... februari update worked correctly !!

Please report any bugs you may find at GitHub. Scattering everything around is not a good idea.

Thanks for the update, looks like nice progress is being made.

The 2.1 database upgrade is broken in the current copy of the release-2.1 branch. I commented on the offending commit and got a quick reply from the author. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

The install stuff is fixed.

The upgrade stuff will have to wait until I finish adding a re-order feature for custom profile fields.

Thanks Suki for your update, i did install february update and replaced the files of the last update only bug i have at this moment is

?action=recent

Code: [Select]
Unknown column 'b.redirect' in 'where clause'
File: /www/web8458/html/Sources/Recent.php
Line: 256

/Sources/Recent.php line 250-256

Code: [Select]
$get_num_posts = $smcFunc['db_query']('', '
SELECT IFNULL(SUM(num_posts), 0)
FROM {db_prefix}boards
WHERE ' . $query_these_boards . '
AND b.redirect = {string:empty}',
array_merge($query_these_boards_params, array('empty' => ''))
);

Herman's Mixen...   GitHub is the platform we use for development and tracking of issues. Anything posted here is likely to get lost and is not tracked. Sorry if you don't like the system, but that's what we are using.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
