Phorum-5.2.8-RC2 released
July 04, 2008 07:26PM
More than a month after our last release candidate we are announcing the second release candidate of Phorum 5.2.8 which is a bug fix release over 5.2.7 fixing lots of issues found.

Some new things were put in too.
This includes:
- the rewrite of the bbcode module done through the MySQL-conference this year
- new APIs for Ajax usage and newflags
- some more hooks for better module integration
- updated / new documentation from Andy Taylor - mostly in FAQ and Admin Docs.

Please test this release and let us know any issues you encounter with it.

You can download it from our downloads page (see "Current Development Version" there).

This is the excerpt from the changelog with changes over 5.2.8-RC1:

2008-07-04 16:48  ts77
	* use display_name for reporter as suggested by Oliver Riesen
	  (fixing #761)

   2008-07-04 15:49  ts77
	* same date formatting in read templates as suggested by Oliver
	  Riesen (#749)

   2008-07-02 18:39  mmakaay
	* Fixed an incompatibility between file downloads with the "only
	  from this forum" restriction, in combination with URI
	  authentication. Before this fix, access for downloading the image
	  would be denied, even though the file was downloaded directly from
	  the forum. # Also a typo-fix-of-the-day change (learned that it is
	  "existent" :-).

   2008-07-01 14:30  mmakaay
	* Fixed a compatibility problem between the new BBcode module and
	  PHP versions prior to 5.1.0. The PHP function
	  htmlspecialchars_decode() is not available for those versions of
	  PHP. Thanks to Adam for noticing the problem and for providing a
	  work-around!

   2008-06-25 21:14  ts77
	* fixed undefined index in event_logger module (#748, reported by
	  Oliver Riesen)

   2008-06-25 21:07  ts77
	* stripped quotes from plain-text forum description as suggested by
	  Oliver Riesen (#743)

   2008-06-25 20:53  ts77
	* added line-height for thread options as suggested by Oliver Riesen
	  (#730)

   2008-06-25 20:20  ts77
	* made users tz_offset a float value for non-integer timezones

   2008-06-17 11:19  mmakaay
	* The "Force hiding of email addresses" option is now only
	  applicable to regular forum users. Administrators and moderators
	  can always see the email addresses of the users. For moderators,
	  this can be restricted by setting the PHORUM_MOD_EMAIL_VIEW
	  constant to false in include/constants.php. Some more fine grained
	  control for email address displaying will be added to Phorum 5.3.

   2008-06-16 10:15  ts77
	* quote anonymous authors with their name (fixing #744)

   2008-06-16 09:59  ts77
	* sort strictly by datestamp to get the recent_post (fixing #755)

   2008-06-16 09:32  ts77
	* added user's posts to edit screen (readonly), fixing #759

   2008-06-16 09:06  mmakaay
	* Another fix for #765: UTF-8 byte order markers at the start of
	  template files are now stripped by include/templates.php.

   2008-06-16 08:20  mmakaay
	* Fix for #765: catch the output of include files
	  (include/db/config.php, include/lang/* and
	  templates/*/settings.tpl) to prevent extra output like UTF-8 byte
	  order markers from breaking the pages.

   2008-06-13 18:28  ts77
	* case insensitive search for block tags in html module (fixing
	  #760)

   2008-06-05 00:21  mmakaay
	* Implemented some improvements for the Editor Tools module as
	  suggested by David King (phorum.org user "Optimal") and Oliver
	  Riesen. The behavior when adding tags using the buttons is now
	  much better. The textarea won't scroll up anymore if it is
	  scrolled downwards a bit and the text that was selected previously
	  to adding the tag will be reselected after adding the tag.

   2008-06-03 09:41  mmakaay
	* Fixed a bug in handling stale close tags that directly follow
	  another open or close tag. Thanks to CBiLL for the problem report.
	  The related error message was: Unsupported operand types in
	  [..]/bbcode/api.php

   2008-06-02 08:09  mmakaay
	* Fix for #762: moved pm_sent hook to always trigger the hook after
	  a sent PM. Before, it would not trigger if the PM mail
	  notification was disabled.

   2008-05-27 20:34  mmakaay
	* Improved handling of stale close tags in the text and fixed a PHP
	  undefined index warning along with it. Thanks to CBiLL for the
	  problem report.

I would assume that the following holds the latest 5.2.8:

[trac.phorum.org]

Saw SVN go through a major shifting around the other day, just double checking.

The big shift was about the tags tree, where an extra layer was added that indicates the Phorum version. So instead of
tags/phorum_5_0_16/
tags/phorum_5_0_17/
tags/phorum_5_1_25/
tags/phorum_5_2_6/
tags/phorum_5_2_7/

we now have:
tags/5_0/phorum_5_0_16/
tags/5_0/phorum_5_0_17/
tags/5_1/phorum_5_1_25/
tags/5_2/phorum_5_2_6/
tags/5_2/phorum_5_2_7/
[/code]

For the trunk and branches, nothing was changed.

What avatar module are you using? There are two of them.
Did you install the latest version of that avatar module?

And please, if you have additional questions or comments, then post in the thread for the actual avatar module. This thread is for announcement purposes and not for general module support. Thank you.

I have solved a problem:
In versions 5.2.6a in file /templates/emerald/read.tpl there was

<td style="padding-right:10px">
{IF MESSAGES->mod_user_avatar}
<img src="{MESSAGES->mod_user_avatar}" alt="avatar"
{IF MESSAGES->mod_user_avatar_w}
style="width:{MESSAGES->mod_user_avatar_w}px;
height:{MESSAGES->mod_user_avatar_h}px"
{/IF} />
{/IF}
</td>

In versions 5.2.8 this fragment of the code is absent.
I has added code and has got their own avatar and lucky!
Thank you, by!

What part of " please, if you have additional questions or comments, then post in the thread for the actual avatar module. This thread is for announcement purposes and not for general module support. Thank you." was unclear? I find it rude that you keep posting avatar issues in the announcement thread instead of the avatar module's thread. Especially after I deleted another one of your postings and asked you again in a PM to not post in the announcement thread for this.

This code is not present, ever! You did therefore not stumble upon a problem. You added it yourself in the previous template, most probably by following the README of the avatar module. Unfortunately, you edited the emerald template directly, instead of creating a custom template for your site (see docs/creating_templates.txt in the distro). Therefore, upgrading breaks your template. It will do so the next time that you upgrade as well, unless you create a custom template.

Now I ask you one more time to please use the correct forum for your issues if you want to discuss anything more.
