Re: Feedback to: Help us test the release candidate for the upcoming 4.0.6

Do you remember which admin plugins needed the add_privs thing added? I’ll compile a list of plugins that need updates in the first post of this topic.

Check your “comments_form” form. It probably contains multiple <txp:comments_error> tags at the top.

You are right, there were two comments_error tags. I had not looked at the form because I just imported the database, so how could the local form not be identical to the live one? But they weren’t. I don’t get it. Anyway, solved :)

Did password_protect work for you in 4.0.5?

No, it did not prompt for a login at all. It used to work, but I don’t know when exactly it stopped working.

…very much depends on your server setup. When PHP is used in CGI-mode, it probably won’t work,

How or where can I see if this is the case? Locally I don’t think so, I’m just using LAMP on Ubuntu.

Admin plugins needing add_privs:

  • asy_sitemap
  • Newsletter Manager (from Ben Bruce – bab_newsletter)

All the rest were unreleased admin-side plugins I’ve been working on.

In your diagnostics tab, look at the “PHP Server API” to see how PHP is used on your website.
The duplicate comments_error tag may be related to the 4.0.3 update script. I’ll see if I can prevent if from being added twice.

Ruud, I just upgraded the live site. And guess what? An extra <txp:comments_error wraptag="ul" break="li" /> was indeed added to the top of the ‘comment_form form…

Live install: PHP server API: cgi. But after upgrading the password protection now works!

Local install: PHP server API: cgi-fcgi. Here it doesn’t recognize the login and pass. (But that of course is not a problem for me.)

<txp:comments_error wraptag="ul" break="li" />

Hey, I had that same thing happen. Did the update script accidentally replace a deprecated tab incorrectly?

Re: Feedback to: Help us test the release candidate for the upcoming 4.0.6

Looking good guys. All working sweetly after an upgrade from 4.0.5, thanks (I don’t use comments on this site though).

Couple of (very) minor things, probably not even directly related to 4.0.6:

  1. Since the URLs for the ‘?’ help links are ‘static’ across versions, do you just change them the day 4.0.6 goes live? (e.g. for renaming the “hide e-mail address” & “syndicate excerpt” options?)
  2. Some of the help links (new options?) on the Advanced Prefs go to the “sorry” page. Affected items I noticed are 1) file directory path, 2) plugin cache directory path, 3) widowed titles, 4) mod_deflate compensation, 5) all custom fields.

Like Els, I’m not a fan of “negative logic” options like “Disallow user images” (‘yes’ by default) which should probably be “Allow user images” (‘no’ by default). I understand changing those things potentially impacts upgrades, and I can’t think of how to offer the ‘quick fix’ of rewording it like you did with the “hide e-mail” one… *ponder*

With regards plugins:

  1. rss_db_admin_manager works with changes noted by Ruud above
  2. stm_javascript doesn’t show the Javascript tab under Presentation, and already has an add_privs line (mind you, the chances of it clashing with the core due to its violation of the “don’t pollute global namespace” rule is likely)
  3. smd_remote file: displays the upload box on the Files tab without using add_privs (ug?!) and also adds a box on the Edit File page under the new “replace file” box. This 2nd upload box currently will not work as expected if the file name is altered — it will instead create a new file from the given URL (I will investigate both these issues and supply an updated plugin soon)

Other than that, sweet. Excellent job.
