  • However, Arantor provides spotty support. Spotty as in, not very often.
  • Since I'm not familiar with Aeva 2.10, I don't know what's wrong from that screenshot.
I haven't done in ages, and won't be offering any support, partly because my annual subscription ended last month, and partly because Wedge is where it's at.

Though that screenshot looks fine to me.
The following post does say there is support for kind customers, I thought I asked nicely?
http://aeva.noisen.com/5040/please-read-this-message-first/
Check the date. That message predates this topic, indicating that things had happened afterwards that soured the deal... Especially as I understand that the paid support board, as was, is now closed.[1]
 1. If it weren't closed, that would be the place to ask for support on the paid version... right?

Aeva developer,

Bummer about your experience with SMF. Mine has been mostly positive, but obviously I am not in a position to "see how the sausage is made". My condolences.

Some of your comments might help explain the very long delay for SMF's RTM.

This may be an awkward question, but which of the SMF Mods would you recommend to manage a picture gallery. I hope you can understand that I am reluctant to install an unsupported Mod like Aeva, especially with docs in a language other than my native English (see challenge questions, for example). Do you have a non-commercial version of Aeva?

This is especially true as my under-construction www.canprint.org forum is related to photography. At this point, I'm less interested in videos, but I may eventually be preparing youtube-like instructionals.

I have used the forum software engine that nifty-stuff.com is built on, and want to have the equivalent or better capability of a post like:
http://www.nifty-stuff.com/for...viewtopic.php?pid=41696#p41696

Thanks, and again, my condolences. I've been put on probation from several forums, and banned from one. It stings.

It's still on the mod site at sm.org for now. 1.4w is the latest.

Be glad. Be very glad. Those of us who've been the other side of that curtain... let's just say a number of us would never go back across the line again.

Aeva, hands down. Just because it's not being updated doesn't mean it isn't good at what it does. And there is occasional support for the free version on sm.org, so it's not totally unsupported. Worst case scenario is that it's no more unsupported in the scheme of things than the other major gallery mod seems to be, i.e. it doesn't get updated all that often and support is infrequent there too.

As live said, yes, it's on the mod site. Hint: it's currently the most popular mod.

The banning was only one of several unpleasant episodes, and not even the last one of them.


Mind you, before long all of this will hopefully be just an unhappy memory. As you may know, Wedge is a branch off from the main SMF code, with Aeva built in, as well as many (many) other enhancements, and at some point that's going to be available for free download.

Hi Nao, could you please help with Aeva Lite? I have been going through some very hard times trying to figure out what went wrong with Aeva Lite as there are some problems with tags that appear forcibly: the url tags that gets automatically wrapped around any http or http links that i post, if i code these links first.
Also, there is the noae tag which magically appears around posts, and messes up the post.

To quote my post at the SMF forums:
I am using SMF 1.1.14 with the latest Aeva Lite installed and i am having the same problem. The noae tags are showing up in my posts, wrapped around the entire post and then i see the url tags wrapped around every single link that i post. It is becoming very messy around my forum. Even if i code the links, the noae tags still take over, which forces url tags to appear around every single link in the post. Please help! I hope that there's an easy fix by tinkering with the Aeva configuration settings?

If you can access it, here is the topic and there are many others who are having the same problem.
http://www.simplemachines.org/...unity/index.php?topic=445112.0

Thank you in advance for your help. While we all wait for you to release Wedge, please update and release Aeva Lite on this site, as it is incredibly useful and my forums can't live without it, so again, i beg you not to abandon that modification. Just try to fix any bugs and update it whenever you can spare a few minutes from your big job at getting Wedge ready for all of us waiting. There is an alternative to your Aeva modification, called Simple Audio Video Embedder but frankly, it is just a poor imitation of your mod and it does not even work!!

So what other mods are installed, and what exactly are you trying to do? I'm more than a bit unclear as to exactly what's going on and what behaviour is occurring.

Oh, anyone can read the topic, just that you do know that neither of us can reply there, right?

I can't (and won't) speak for Nao, but I can't really see him putting a lot of effort into Aeva-for-SMF right now, to be honest. After everything that's happened, I just can't see it, but never say never.

Yes, we know about that one, it was written specifically because Aeva Lite was removed for a while from the mod site. It wasn't even originally called SAVE, but AEMP, just to intentionally sound similar and confusing.

I'm more than grateful for any help that can resolve the problems with Aeva Lite. I am using SMF 1.1.14 and whenever i or any member on my forums, post a reply or topic or edit a reply/topic, there are ]URL[ tags that automatically wrap around the links. I have specified it as a rule on my forums that all links are to be coded, that is placed inbetween ]CODE[ tags, so basically, all links are first coded and then when you hit the save button, the ]URL[ tags are there!! Like a curse! They refuse to let go! I edit the post again and remove those URL tags and when i click on the save button, the post reloads and there they are again!! The URL tags have re-appeared and automatically inserted themselves.

Here is an example of how it should be:
Code: [Select]
http://www.yahoo.com/
But here is what always happens on my forums:
Code: [Select]
[url]http://www.yahoo.com/[/url]
I have tried countless times to edit the post to remove the URL tags but they are automatically inserted, so it has to be something with the modifications that i installed, but i removed all my modifications one by one and eventually discovered that it was caused by Aeva Lite's latest version: Aeva-Lite-7.1.708. I am using the one on this site: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=977

To be honest, there is no such modification as Aeva Lite. It is unique. SAVE is simply a poor imitation. It would be tragic and regretful if Nao were to let go of this wonderful modification. It's already very complete but needs a little pruning and maintenance every few months or so. Thanks in advance for your consideration, advice and help.

UPDATE: I have deleted my installation of Aeva Lite and downloaded a fresh copy from the SMF modification site. At first sight, it appears to have fixed my problems. So, i think the mistake that i did was to try and fix the youtu.be missing format from the list of supported sites and in the process i messed up some code in Aeva. Maybe Nao or someone else can please repack these fixed bugs into a new release, even if it's unofficial, only to help newbies like me, who are obviously breaking our forums due to lack of expertise. Thank you!!

UPDATE #2: After testing more extensively, i can confirm that unfortunately, the problem is still here and it's not related by the edits that i had made to Aeva's files, as i have used a fresh/untouched Aeva Lite installation this time. Here is the problem:

Whenever https:// links are involved, Aeva Lite will always wrap URL tags around it, even if these links are placed within CODE tags. I believe that i have finally pinpointed the exact bug.

Example of how it should be:
Code: [Select]
https://securewebsite.com
But this is how it always appears on my forums, despite editing the posts dozens of times, the URL tags keep appearing:
Code: [Select]
[url]https://securewebsite.com[/url]
This bug does not seem to affect links starting with http:// but only https:// links. Please help!!
Try it and i am sure that you will be able to replicate this bug. Hopefully, there is an easy fix or i will have to give up on using Aeva Lite. :( I have temporarily uninstalled the mod until a solution is found.

I will maintain Aeva as time permits -- but within Wedge only. I have no plans for Aeva in SMF except to possibly remove the auto-update process, so that everyone saves on bandwidths (client and remote servers).

Can you make a short test case for the bug you mention?

It would be more tragic if people actually read what's been posted first.[1]


Also, would you please actually answer the questions asked: (the bit in bold is still not answered)

 1. The sole reason Wedge began, was because SMF burned both of us in the past. Not the software, the team. Thus, Wedge will take on the future development of Aeva. This isn't new, this has been said many many times.

Given that I don't have access to the support board, that I have no idea what you're referring to anyway, and I've never looked at the code of Ultimate Profile in my life, I'd say that I can't help you.

This is also why you are strongly encouraged to take backups of everything before an upgrade...
