  • how can I enable it by using my hosting cPanel?

    hi tim,

    sorry if this is the wrong thread to post this question of mine.

    is there an option in dashboard (categories) for the parent category to display 1 latest thread per subcategory, something like parent category acting as a summary? currently if i clicked on the parent category it "says no disscuion...".

    maybe it would be also good to have an option (maybe a checkbox) to display one latest thread for each sub cat when user clicks on the parent cat?

    thanks so much!
  • In your instructions, it might be worth mentioning that if you don't have Clean URLs on you should use the following link to update http://yourforum.com/index.php?p=/utility/update

    Actually, wouldn't this work even for the Clean URL people? If so, it's a far safer URL to be giving out...
    Really wish I would have read that 4 days ago. I had apparently left RewriteURLs turned off on my initial install a few months ago. Attempting to upgrade has been a mess thanks to the upgrade instructions assuming that RewriteURLs was turned on.

    @Tim I agree with @Simanek's comment; probably should revise step 7 in the future.

  • Announcements don't stick at the top when in either of the category or category+discussions home page options.
  • "in this discussion" (apparently an add-on, but I can't find it on the addons site, so apologies if posting in a wrong place) doesn't show the discussion author - only comment authors.
  • still no email verification? :(

    Bump for 2.0.17.4 - Fixes an issue that plagues fresh installs of 2.0.17 where the Vanilla Profile View and Vanilla Activity View permissions were not created during install.

  • why dont we have beta releases to prevent all this?
  • Sweet upgraded to 2.0.17.4 and everything is working now. Thanks to everyone that contributes to vanilla.

    And by 'we' you mean me, right? We all already code and answer support requests 7 days a week. Not sure if that would be effective use of my time.

  • Thanks tim, that squashed my profile permissions bug

    Same issue here - Vanilla Stats do not work on Safari under Mac OS X :( (Firefox is fine)

    I saw in the Safari Developer console that the following error is popping up:
    ReferenceError: Can't find variable: Raphael | graph.js : line 24
  • TimTim Lord of Servers Vanilla Staff
    I'll have a look into this. Could have something to do with Safari's support for JSONp.

  • congratuations, you guys make me feel now like a complete idiot.

    i asked two times a pretty basic question ( jan. 18 and jan. 24) and no answer in any way, i mean a simple "we look into this, come back in a week or two or such" would have been nice since i know this is a free product and there is no free 12h nonstop super duper premium support, but i have never experienced anything like this... this is imho simply off the wall :D

    Bump for 2.0.17.5 - Fixes default category permissions that were sometimes being defined as too restrictive and preventing posting.

    We don't post in every thread or answer every question. Anyone who uses this forum regularly knows that and 99% of those people seem to understand why.

    We sometimes have to ignore less pressing questions, or things that others in the community can and should answer, in favor of actually getting work done, or having meetings, or answering more urgent questions. That's a fact of life, and its not going to change anytime soon.

    Sometimes the thing you're asking about is not a priority for us right now and we cant dedicate time to supporting it. Or maybe you've posted about something that has been answered elsewhere already. Perhaps you're trying to use some plugin that is posted at version 0.1 and is provided with a disclaimer stating that it is an alpha version proof of concept and isn't meant to properly work yet. That could be why you were ignored.

    Helloooooooooooooooooo... where is the 2.0.17.6 ?????
    i try to download but it take me to 2.0.17.5 and 2.0.175 dont allow me to utility/update
  • TimTim Lord of Servers Vanilla Staff
    Bump for 2.0.17.6 - This is a SECURITY release that addresses 3 potential attack vectors:

    1) ?Target=______ was vulnerable to phising attacks since it allowed users to forward others to remote websites without confirmation. This has been prevented.

    2) ?p=______ was vulnerable to XSS attacks since it was inserted into the page without being sanitized.

    3) Cookie HMAC timing attacks. This allowed clever attackers to eventually spoof signed requests and potentially gain access to other accounts by signing fake cookies.

  • Hello!
    The stats pluging don't record statistics. It always shows 0 page views. Do you know what could be the problem?
    Gabriel.
  • TimTim Lord of Servers Vanilla Staff
    Yes. I found a stupid date math problem in a key part of the code which caused stats to stop being sent. I've fixed the issue but I still need to put it together into a release, and figure out a smart way of allowing recovery of the last week's worth of stats.
