how can notepad or anything mess up anything for adding a simple j
i did it correctly im sure


Just as a side note to anyone else...

Notepad will mess up ANY php files!!

DO NOT USE NOTEPAD TO EDIT YOUR PHP FILES.

Use a text editor like ConText, UltraEdit or EditPlus

I normally use Ultraedit myself.

But I've always wondered if the code editor in Dreamweaver is all right. I wouldn't want to use it for extensive coding, but for these sort of small edits it would be quite convenient.

Anyone have experience?

I wouldn't use Dreamweaver.  It messes up files.  Take it from me.  Happened to me a few times. :-\

Firefox issue?
Thanks for the info guys.

I just replace the script.js with a new one and rename the old into script_bug_firefox.js and change the code in default theme. So, my visitors doesnt need to refresh and clear their browser cache.

So much for FF being the golden child browser.... Now it has bugs just like the rest of them... :D Don't get me wrong, I still use it... I just don't care for the hype that its the best thing since sliced bread..

How's it do that??

When you save it it messed it up beyond repair.  Try it.  It moves lines around, etc.

DreamWeaver is a WYSIWIG HTML editor.  WYSIWIG HTML editors like to heavily modify the code of any files it loads so that it can display properly.

Dreamweaver can mess up files, if you have some preferences set a certain way, for example: inserting linefeeds in long lines. However, it is designed to leave existing code alone and only change what you want. When set-up correctly reformatting only happens on request.

Beyond that, some customisation of the integrated ftp client configuration may be required for certain file-types to ensure correct ascii/binary transfer.

I've personally never had any problems with Dreamweaver messing about with html, php, or javascript files. I find it to be an excellent tool for wysiwyg layout and hand-coding. The only times I've had problems, it was my fault.

Here's one for you:

I am using SMF 1.1 beta 4 and I am looking at my default theme right now. The interesting thing is, there is no "?" at all after the $settings['default_theme_url'], '/script.js. In other words, it has:
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/script.js"></script>

What do I do now? Insert a ?j (or whatever) after it? Sounds like everyone else here had a "?" What gives?

Thanks,

Uhm... Guys... the ?rc1 or ?rc2 is postdata used by certain parts of the themes... modifying that with a j will break some themes!!! You most certainly shouldn't be trying ?jrc1 or ?rc1j as it will respond "cannot load the template" (which appears to be the problem some folks are having)

If you are going to add the j in the cases where your line reads ?rc1 or ?rc2, it should be added as &j

So, if your call to script.js already has a ?rc1 it should read ?rc1&j like this:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/script.js?rc1&j"></script>

You don't modify existing postdata, you make a new one. Dee dee dee!  ::)

I have a question. I'm thinking of DLing it for my forums, just have one question;

With Version 2 does it still do this, or would I have to change it myself?

Champi

i am still running SMF 1.1 RC1 at two sites (simsarea.nl and champi.nl)... none of my members or visitors at both sites using FF have experienced problems..

Is this a general problem.. do i have to make those changes if i experience no problems at all..

Compuart

It's not so much the Firefox user that will experience the problems (they won't hardly notice), but the server that would be hammered as a result of FF's timer being close to resetting (once in 19 hours if I'm not mistaken). It's advisable to at least replace your script.js by the one in the first post.

I'm new to SMF, and just two more questions;

is there a version without this bug?
is it easy for moderate users to install?

1.0.6, the latest stable version of SMF does not have this bug. However the fix for this issue is a drop in replacement. Meaning you only need to replace the old file with the new one and it will work.
Whoops! Did i break that?

goodgameral

Then how come it looks more complicated than that on the font page? Also, I thought the front page said 1.05  and under were bug-free.

Champi

Dank je.. Thnx.. so replace the js and modify the link in index.template.. ok  :)

1.0.6 was released after this was posted, I have updated the first post to reflect that 1.0.6 is safe.
