Hi, I just upgraded to the latest Phorum version. This mod is not working for me either. I changed the API code as requested. Its still not working in my templates.. I'll continue testing to make sure its nothing on my end. This is a great mod, thank you for the work.

Whether the API code change works for you depends on the problem that is going on. Do you have your site public, so we can take a closer look at it? If not, then try the debugging option that Joe described in his message.

I changed the API code back and changed the template to the current Emerald (not my own). What I'm seeing is that the Preview is working on the read.php page when hovering over the Subject. My modified template doesn't have the subject as a link, but in Emerald its showing the preview box. I'm guessing their some type of code thats working with this Module to allow this to preview. The list page is not showing anything on any of my templates.

I have completed v5.2.1.01 of this module with the following change:

- Bugfix: Sites with a dash in their address would fail to generate previews. Thanks go to Phorum user John Shallo for catching this bug.

John, please download the latest version which should address your problem.

Its working great!

I also downloaded your PM Notice but, i haven't seen it working yet. So I don't know if this mod also needs a similar change.

Thank you so much for your great work and attention to my post.

John,

In testing on my own server both mods worked fine and the bug in this mod would not have affected the PM Alerts module. I have created two users on your site (azumandias and testuser2) for the purposes of testing the pm alerts. Could you give those accounts access to using the pm system? Also, for further comments on that problem, lets use that mod's thread so as to leave this one to its own issues ;-)

Thanks for the replies, and apologies for my delay in responding, I haven't had a chance to look at this until today.

In the header.js file for this mod, please edit this line:
"onFailure"     : function (error) { showerror = false; if (showerror) alert("Error: " + error); }
to read:
"onFailure"     : function (error) { showerror = true; if (showerror) alert("Error: " + error); }

This should send up an alert to let us know what is going wrong. (hmm, may need to add that to the settings page as a debug option...)

The error shown in the popup was:

Error: Ajax Phorum API call succeeded, but the return data could not be parsed as JSON data.

When I look at the traffic that is generated by the module (using Firebug under Firefox), I see the following response from the server:
<b>Fatal error</b>:  Call to undefined function:  json_decode() in <b>/usr/local/home/httpd/vhtdocs/cantonese
/phorum/include/api/json.php</b> on line <b>62</b><br />

The json PHP extension not be enabled on the server, causing the json_encode() and json_decode() functions to be missing out. I thought I had taken care of that in the json API code, but it looks like something is going wrong in there. We need some debugging here.

Please open include/api/json.php. In that file, you should see the following code:
if (!function_exists('json_encode')) {
    require_once('./include/api/json-pear.php');
    $PHORUM['API']['PEARJSON'] = new Services_JSON();
}

What I'm suspecting, is that $PHORUM is not in global scope here, causing the json extension detection to get lost in the rest of the API code. Try changing this code to:
if (!function_exists('json_encode')) {
    require_once('./include/api/json-pear.php');
    $GLOBALS['PHORUM']['API']['PEARJSON'] = new Services_JSON();
}

See if that makes the interface work. If it does, then I'll update the core code to represent this change.

I made the suggested change but unfortunately it hasn't helped. My forum is at [www.cantonese.sheik.co.uk]

Cheers!
