Rattler, I understand what you are saying... this is still a work in progress and should work much better once a few bugs are worked out... apparently the newest version is still not in the database, so you aren't getting all the bug fixes yet. Hopefully borg will be able to work on this some tomorrow and we can get a less-buggy version out...

Muc, all you have to do is upload the new cgi, cfg, and pl files to get the new functionality... no new coding needed... also upload the codebuttons.pl file if you already haven't installed them to avoid the errors...

viper, this one isn't for the faint of heart, or the very new users. You should start off with something a little easier and workup in complexity...

Hello!
Just a suggestion/question:
Why isn't v 2.0 of this available for download in the database, I wonder? I wrested with this beta for quite some time, then tried v 1.5 (which caused endless errors on UBB 5.47.), but v 2.0 worked perfectly on my system on the first install... [Linked Image]
I'm just surprised it isn't there, unless I simply missed it. (?)

Great - can you post your code changes so I can fix this problem? It is urgent! Version 3 may be beta but this problem is caused by earlier versions that are not meant to be beta. So we need fixes as well as new beta versions really!

Appreciate if you can Email the changes (or even just the entire CGI files that you fixed) to me ASAP

If we can get the latest greatest version of PM 3.0 that UBBDEV is running here combined with the ForwardWithCookies routine then I think we will be really close...

I have PM 3.0 running smoothly on 3 boards now, but I think it is VERY irresponsible of you to have 3.0 posted in the database. People tend to trust that what is in the database is final product as has been the case. having 3.0 in the DataBase while we all know the hardship involved in getting it working [and yes the cookies are screwed] especially since the instructions are poor at best, is not ver proffesional IMHO.

Not sure if this will help or not, but it pertains to the OUTBOX in the latest version available to us simple folk (I think) [Linked Image]

If I send a NEW private message, or FORWARD a private message, it shows up in the outbox.

If I REPLY to a private message it DOES NOT show up in the outbox.

I can repeat this at will, and have verified there are no entries in the $user.db file.

Hope this helps the "cause" [Linked Image]

Hy Allen and Borg, I have a new (for me) problem with PM3.0

I don't know if this had been discussed before because I was not able to read 16 pages PM3.0 problems, so if this was discussed before just send me the link please and I'll be quiet. [Linked Image]

Here's the prob:

Everything works fine, but when I send a new PM to a email adress i get an 500 ISE. What's wrong ? Do you know this ?

thanks

Thanks Muc for the bug report... we'll look at that one too.

I found a bug on the version here as well... when someone sends an im, and hits "enter" or "newline" to go to another line in the message, the im sends one im with the info from the first line and a pm for the next line, from user "Yes" and "1" as the subject and the info from the second line in the im as the end of the url for the message... you can repeat this yourself by senbding yourself an im and using a 2 line message in it... doesn't happen when the text flows to the next line, only when a new line is made with the enter key.

Allen, is that a bug in PM or a problem with the way IM calls PM?

Sorry for being so impatient, but is there anyone actually working on PM 3.0 right now?

Allen, I didn't understand your posting. "You'll look on that bug to", so, what you gonna do ? Is this bug in every version of PM3.0 or is it made by me... I don't understand.
So if you wanna have a look at my forum (I don't think you remember the adress), the URL is here:

I'm having a problem. Well, here's the prob. I'm running the newest v5.47a I think it is. Well, whenever I click "New PM," a blank page comes up. I've set all the permissions correctly but it still comes up blank. Any suggestions would be nice.

Logix, as stated before, you must the the ubb_codebuttons.pl in the CGI Directory for PMs to work. The hack doesn't need to be installed, the pl files just has to be present.

Are we likely to see PM v4.0 (please make it have the cookie fix suggested above!) anytime soon?

Cookie problems are the number one problem because they affect UBB functions outside of PM making this "beta" code affect the whole of UBB and no-one expects that even of betas...

I sometimes find that I can't post in a private forum (says I am not auth), is OK after I delete cookies (for the hundredth time!).

The users are also reporting that red folders don't show properly for new messages - again probably a corrupt cookie problem.

Thanks

I have uploaded the beta of v3.5 to our server:
[admin edit] latest files are here. [/admin edit]

Warning!! This is alpha/beta code! There are definitely errors present. We are not responsible for errors that may happen to your site.

It seems that our friend Borg is extremely busy with work. I hope by releasing this, we can get a few heads together to bugfix it... These are the same files installed here and I used the same instructions, which aren't the clearest... they will be rewritten as the bugs are squashed...

Allen, why not finishing 3.0 first? Is there a stable release???? shocked

I think i find another Bug in the 3.0 Version execpt for the known and discussed here.

When i used it in a Board where unregistered Users can write and Post, there will be a PM-Symbol for an unregistered User!!!!

Example Link:

http://www.bandit-umbau.de/forum/ubb/Forum13/HTML/000069.html

First I'm unregistered with no PM Symbol, then the Admin posts after me and i got a PM Symbol on first posting with pm-link to the admin!. After posting again, the Symbol of PM isn't lanoger availible at the first posting, but at the other two posting i got the Symbol to send another User a PM!!!

What the hell is this for a....:o

Perhabs we could get together a stable Version of 3.0 which will run without who is Online, Cookie-trouble and Codebuttons?

Anytime you let unregistered members post on a modified ubb, you are gonna get things like that... especially when you have stuff like ICQ, AIM, Y!Mess, etc... it's because they have no profile, yet the ubb is looking for profile info to put along that memberline...

I posted the zip file because I have been begged a bajillion times for the files... I do not plan to move on to new features until this one is worked out tho... if that's any consolation...

Allen, I have the same thing...installed to a T...I believe [Linked Image] Have a look here at the Viperclub , go on into any forum. For the most part it was very straight forward. Seems to work just fine 'cept this one thing. COULD be my install, so I'll poke around some more...it's still early!! [Linked Image]

As a PS...I uploaded the UBonline.cgi from before the fix you mentioned above and there was no change. No big surprise, but part of the process I guess! [Linked Image]

OK.. uploaded the files again...

This time I included the ubbrandomx and y functionality in the private*.cgi files for those who need it.

I have also begun adding a bugfix text file so you'll know what has been done, when. When we get a little more accomplished, I'll redo the official documentation...

Those ISE's... did you upload ubonline.cgi in ascii? Did you check the perl path at the top? chmod to 755?

Yep, and double-triple checked. Could the placement of some of the code be causing this? I had occasion to wonder whether I was in the right place once or twice, but I failed on the side of what little experience I have. It seems it is the Ubonline.cgi failing (NO offense intended, just the only term I could think of this late!![Linked Image] ). I'll keep looking!!

www.gamerzparadize.com/cgi/Ultimate.cgi and when i click on the online to send an IM it gives me an internal server error 500 I have UBonline.cgi uploaded and chmoded to 755 and the perl path is correct.

I know this has been said before, but I'll say it again-

This doesn't work with netscape for some reason. I have Netscape. I don't like IE. Therefore, getting this to work with NS is top priority in my book. Anyway, Borg's version at the Planet Community works just fine in netscape. Someone needs to share the new code [Linked Image].

What does it do in Netscape?

Also, I am really not sure what is different from what you guys are doing and how we have it installed here... I probably need to redo the install instructions so they are clearer...

I won't be using the Instant Message part of this hack, so I'm proposing incorporating this simple addition to the code base to make the IM aspect of PM optional via the config file:


IM Optional Hack

In the variables section of private.cfg add the following lines:

code:

In privateview.cgi find:

and right BEFORE add:

Also in privateview.cgi, find:

and add the following right AFTER:

I get the same thing.. it appears the pop-up's javascript has a problem... I do note that borg doesn't have it installed on his site right now, and gets the same error messge we do when using the "check all" function in pm's...

Nice addition thermit... I'll test it as soon as I get a chance and add it to the download... what happens to the online/ not online .gifs when im's are turned off?

Gamer, easier to explain than demo.

PM is setup to display your Instant Messages in certain cases (all cases?) and there is a header bar in case any Instant Messages are there, but in my case there won't ever be any so this mod, if added to the code base, will allow people to opt into displaying the instant messages and that associated header. It also turns off displaying the Private Messages header bar since there is no need to differentiate if not using Instant Messages.

Thanks Allen. Don't know the answer to the question about gifs cause I don't have IMs.

Here is another change that I propose for the code base. It cosmetically changes the "Hop to" Bar to look the same as the "Hop to" Bars on the standard forumdisplay.cgi pages. More specifically it increases the font size by one, changes color of "Hop to" text and basically looks a lot better. Here's a comparision.





Standard Hop To Bar

In privateview.cgi find:

code:


and replace with:
