"Announce Topic" Endless Loop
« on: February 13, 2019, 08:29:42 AM »
"Announce Topic" results in an endless loop of the continue countdown screen for all users. No announcements are sent.

How many users are you trying to send to?

Hm, there’s been various reports of it bugging out with less than 500 users but we’d never been able to consistently reproduce it but I think it will need more investigation.

I tried now and I have the same error, Sesquipedalian's fix does not solve the endless loop of the countdown.

I think this is a separate, new issue.   I was easily able to replicate this in WAMP & Linux environments.

Version: SMF 2.1 RC1

I have this same issue. I have tried to "announce topic" to a 2-member group and a 9-member group. Both times it went into an endless loop with the continue button. I also tried to modify the cron.php file, as suggested elsewhere in this thread, but it did not work for me either. I used the "announce topic" feature when I was running v2.0.15 of SMF, but it has not worked since upgrading to v2.1 RC1.

I still have this same error (endless loop when attempting to "announce topic") after the 2.1 RC2 update.

This issue is slated for a fix in RC3.

I pushed a fix just now that fixes this.

https://github.com/live627/SMF2.1/commit/31e56c545ef540845a8af70d4737d965642b7ec3

I just wish that all  bug fixes were this easy.

I replaced the Sources/Post.php file with the one on github. However, now I am getting hundreds of "general" errors for "Invalid argument supplied for foreach()", as well as "undefined" errors for "Undefined index: attributes," on Themes/default/Post.template.php Line 1189. I also see a "critical" error for "Invalid value inserted or no type specified.
Function: QuoteFast" on Sources/Post.php Line 2481.

there have been other commits since RC2 was released. all you needed was the change noted, you may have gotten more changes which is leading to the errors. revert the file back and just change what is necessary.

What changes noted,  I saw two possible fixes which one person said made things worse.

When is RC3 going to be available because we have other issues besides the Announcement issue on our forum using RC2 for people using Apple devices.

Currently 2.0.16 is taking priority, but what has changed in 2.1 since 2.1 RC2, is publicly available all the time on Github.
