Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.8.0-beta released

Sorry to be snippy. I’m trying to get the Themes doc finished (among many others), which I’ve been working on for over a month now because nobody can decide what/how UI features should be designed, and so I have to keep changing descriptions and images. Give an editor a break.

[…] The help tip says it’s ‘required’. If that’s wrong then somebody should at least change the help tip.

I don’t mean “you” as “you, Destry” but as generic ‘you’. This helptip is inconsistent or even incorrect, compared to all the other similar items.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.8.0-beta released

Sorry Destry, the pophelp topic is half wrong: it’s not user required per se but Textpattern requires it internally. The title is auto-created if you don’t supply one, based on the name. If you blank it out, it will be recreated from the name by transforming it to sentence case (ymmv in other languages, never tried).

We could probably drop the ‘(required)’ in the pophelp if you think it causes confusion with the field itself not stating it’s Required.

It should be dropped me thinks, if is not user required. The pop help is only for the end user, not to tell the TXP engine what to do.

Got ya. Cool.

Sorry Destry

No apology necessary. I misunderstood Phi, who is generally direct in his statements anyway. I always have to step back and think about them before responding. This one got the better of me. ;)

That I received an unwarranted rant/attack (unrelated subject) from someone in the fediverse today, probably didn’t help with my defenses being up.

I know these things take time to iron out, patience is a virtue, etc. And I don’t help with all my useless input on design/dev ideas.

This 2020 has me in a ‘get it done and over’ mood, I guess.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.8.0-beta released

Just upgraded locally to 4.8.0-dev, actually, for docs testing reasons. I have 4 plugins installed. Each one threw two errors, the same in each case, for example:

Warning: mkdir(): Permission denied on line 509

Warning: file_put_contents(/Users/destry/Sites/wion/textpattern/plugins/soo_toc/soo_toc.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory on line 532

I get an ‘All checks pass!’ in diagnostics, though.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.8.0-beta released

Oooh we should probably check the ‘textpattern/plugins’ directory is writable in Diagnostics too. I’ll fix that, thanks for the catch.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.8.0-beta released

Yep, a 777 on the folder made it go away.

I know, I know, this isn’t Vegas and 777 isn’t jackpot. But I’m plagued with one of the operating systems that no matter what I try to do to regulate my setup, I can’t use any sane chmod value otherwise; it just keeps throwing errors.

So I roll sevens.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.8.0-beta released

The writability check for the plugin directory is now reported in both the Diagnostics and Plugins panels.

New strings required too.
