Manaus, I know what that situation must feel like.
I would try to hire one of the TXP pros/Devs to help you sort it out.

Otherwise you could also ask your host to restore the entire site (including the database) to the state just before the upgrade, and then work first on a local copy of the site upgrading it to 4.4 and see if you can figure out what causes the problem. Once you have everything running fine locally, you can copy that site to the server.

Re: Feedback for the Textpattern 4.4.0 release

Can some kind soul tell why the preview link structure has changed? Before it was kind of ‘clean articleurl’?txt.previewnnn.nnnnnn which allowed me to see the actual URL before going ‘live’.

The old behavior allowed me to time/prepare some links using the correct ‘live’ URL. Now I have to assemble this url manually which is a nice error source.

No big deal but why did the preview url change?

Re: Feedback for the Textpattern 4.4.0 release

updates went smoothly for me so far, so thx for that!
i do have a question about the new htaccess in /files though:

# Inhibit directory listing
Options -Indexes

mhm, i use +Indexes and fancy indexing sometimes in /files … shouldn’t i?
but the second directive is much more difficult:

# Inhibit direct file downloads
RedirectMatch 403 .*

i use direct links to files on a regular basis. there is no other way sometimes, e.g. when you want to stream MP3s or video. in which circumstances might i end up with a vulnerable site?

cheers, -f

I think that’s why Robert renamed the .htaccess file to .htaccess-dist, so that it wouldn’t break sites that depend on direct download links. [Based on this thread and the versioning check-in comments]

I’ve run podcast sites pretty well using only Textpattern’s download links and link tags, so blocking direct downloads is no problem for me.

The old preview method had security implications.

Re: Feedback for the Textpattern 4.4.0 release

Thanks Robert, only one minor point which comes to my mind:

Bloke Stef, as the new preview URL still shows the article ID … Are those security implications maybe still valid for your short url plug-in?

Aha! Apologies for polluting this thread with a question Google was able to resolve. I found the answer here.
