Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.5.7 released

I had the RPC server issue a few times last week. Seems there’s some funky, sporadic DNS or hosting issue going on.

The basic symptoms are that after install (or indeed when visiting the language panel), instead of being taken to the language list, it sits and thinks for about 10-15 seconds then drops you to the languages sub-panel but offers to install from file instead of from the server (because it can’t connect to it). Usually if you visit the panel a short while later, everything’s fine. This is not specific to 4.5.7, but will affect all installations. Grrr, Internet gremlins. Maybe one of the other people with their fingers on the pulse of the network can shed some light here.

There is a newer version of Textpattern CMS available

The RPC server probably needed telling that the latest release is 4.5.7. Seems to be set now, so it shouldn’t report that any more. What’s more annoying is that when you update a language pack, it still thinks it needs updating. I think that’s a date/time/zone thing but have never got to the bottom of it, because it seems to come and go.

If you spot any other such already-fixes that would benefit being in 4.5.x, please let us know.

Is it preferable to raise a new issue for each, or bundle a handful with appropriate links/evidence into one issue?

If you can edit the Issue’s title, feel free to keep the noise down and bundle them all under Issue 427 if you like. I’ll tend to them en-masse, assuming they’re all capable of being done in 4.5.x without too much bother. Or raise them separately if it seems cleaner. I’m easy.

That seems to make most sense. I can’t edit the title, but I think the dev team can.

Done. Play away.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.5.7 released

I will make upgrades post-haste. Thanks all. Thanks for the great blog post, Stef!

There’s no mention of the Markdown filter or the little semantic change on the images fields (title/caption? … I think it was like a record… six years after initial request, or whatever), but those are in there in core now?

Just curious. I’d like to start using those in collaborative sites.

Reason: they’re not in there yet.

4.5.7 is a patch release. Changing a tag or attribute’s functionality tends to go in more major releases. For reference, you are referring to r5739 (thread reference) right?

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.5.7 released

My post seems to have been lost. Today I was able to change the language. Although the backend is now in English, the message is in German:

Diagnostics

Pre-flight check

Beim Versuch den RPC-Server zu erreichen, ist ein Fehler aufgetreten. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal.

In two of the three sites I can’t access to Preferences > Language. The diagnostics report a problem with the access to the RPC-Server.

Is the languages tab visible? If so, what do you see when you click/tap it?

The language tab (button) is visible. Yesterday, when I clicked it, happened some minutes nothing, then came a message that access was not possible. Today I could access put the RPC-Server message is still the same, but not in English as is the backend.

I just updated 4 sites without a hitch. the fifth update reports these errors :

There is a problem trying to connect to the RPC server. Please, try again later.

The Diagnostics tab takes a long time to load and the Preferences > Language tab after a very long wait reports no languages are available …

Can’t connect to remote server to check for updated language files. Please try again later.

UPDATE: managed to load a language pack and now the Language Tab is working … the Dialogue about failing to connect with RPC still ongoing …
