Hi there,
after installing the security update for 1.1.20 the preview function of the forum is not working anymore. I see:

Preview post
Fetching preview...

...and nothing happens. I've seen this bug being reported for earlier versions but none of the solutions worked for me. Additionally I've no access to the PHP files to modify them, all I can do is installing/updating packages on this forum..

Any idea whats going on and how I could resolve this is appreciated.

however, you WILL need to edit the php file to correct the issue.

How can you be running a site without access to the files?

Be admin but not the forum owner.

Sorry, no chance atm. The forum owner is not available for some time.

True... so true... :-(

Sot it look I have no chance for a fix???

k@... you posted that already... and the user said that he can't edit the php file....

so, MortenMacFly, there may eventually be a 1.1.21 fix since we introduced an error... but not soon

Well, he CAN, if you think about it. :)

Admin>Configuration>Themes and layouts>Modify theme>Click on theme name>Click on file name.

No way to back it up, though, before you edit it, in this case. :(

in 1.1 you cant modify the default theme that way, so it is not a fix.


Illori

that cant be from the default theme as it is not listed on the page to select from. in 1.1 they thought that the default [theme #1] should not be modified much at all so you cant modify it from the admin panel, where you can in 2.0.

Ahhhhh... The swines! ;)

Well - NO LUCK, unfortunately. In the Theme I use I see no post.php file there. Only files like index.php etc. Those I could edit, but the one in question I can't... :-( :( :( :(

Si I guess I've to wait for the update... but nice to hear you've one in mind... :D

Also, if the theme you use doesn't have that file, that means it's using the one from "default", so you'll want to edit Themes/default/Post.template.php either way.
