Well, you already know my thoughts on this, and how crappy this whole situation is.Ditto. :gnehe:
But as I said you, you have a lot of followers who care about you - and who'll follow you, such loyalty is not easily earned. Screw the team, at the end of it, it's their loss, not yours.
Take some time off, have a good one and hope it tops up your happyfuel tank some :)
Nao: You have a big mouth and you stand on your rights to say what you want. That's fine with me, but then you must also take the consequences!I always do.
In the past, you several times did not speak nice to me,Quotes?
even I helped with beta testing, provided server access etc. I can live with it, you are French and I'm to old to get pissed off by such actions.IIRC, I was banned without warning once and immediately unbanned, then I had a warning and was post-banned for a week for answering to insults from a neo-nazi. I always condemned the SMF team's behavior on that. They could simply have TAKEN DOWN his insults. Anyway... That's all. Then I was warned for "insulting" people, last week. I ASKED for quotes of these, but of course didn't get any. Then got perm-banned for "spreading false information", for which I wasn't even warned anyway...
But at sm.org, you have been warned so many times - a lot more times than others and you won't learn. Fine, but take the consequences without moaning! Grov up!
Well, only 40% of vbgamer's mods were given to him, and really, the rest are not that well coded. I remember a bit back, a list of bad style matters and borderline vulnerabilities was handed to vbgamer and there was an actual argument with him. (For example, it was possible to add items to non existent albums in SMF Gallery Lite)That wouldn't surprise me. He obviously chose quantity over quality.
Oh, and queries in templates. But apparently that was from when rules were 'more lax'. Despite the mods still being updated.I don't have a problem with these in mods. Because you rarely need to make a custom template for your custom themes. Meaning, you don't need to reproduce the queries from that template, either.
I find myself at a strange juncture, I don't want to write any more mods generally but I'm tempted to go make mods to replace his, ones that are well written and will mean there is no reason for him to stick around because everything he touches isn't friendly.Mods like what?
I also reminded the team yesterday that he is blatantly exempt from rules, after publishing two mods he hasn't even tested (one by his own admission), and both I spent time fixing previously.lol... Where did you say that? What did they answer? If anything?
Basically, it would make me very happy to replace the functionality of all of his mods, and it seems I have some supporters in that direction too. I don't see a need to tackle SGP since I don't really see what it can do that AeMe can't, and what AeMe does better anyway.Yeah... I remember reading the feature list recently and it had added a couple of features that weren't in AeMe, but I'd added them to my to-do-list anyway, as they're commonplace nowadays (picture tagging, etc.)
I passed it on via someone who still has access to the team, I haven't heard a reply though, and he never replied to my comments publicly about either (have a read of the Anti Spam Links mod and Ignore Topics mod threads including my asking outright if he'd bothered testing the latter, which it was clear he hadn't.)The Ignore Topics topic is long. I didn't read it at the time. (Ah, yes, another mod that we can easily replace with my stuff.)
It's an impossible task for 1 guy, hence the reason I and others tried to help out in the past.I never asked for anyone's help. I welcome it, though. Always have.
There are a few reasons I no longer help out:....Aeva Media 1.x has public albums, too. I just renamed them to regular albums, and public albums are now featured albums. I never got a complain about that change... But in terms of permissions, the new system is actually clearer, and doesn't have a single less feature.
* I got kicked out of the SM team in January and couldn't bother with Simple Machines
* I'm still using SMF Media Gallery 2.0.5 because it has public albums
* I haven't had time to do the translation for Aeva MediaEnglish is good enough, most people can use it.
But my lack of help has nothing to do with Nao or the way he is. Nao as well as Aeva should stay, he just needs to learn to behave after "sm.org" standards.Or maybe sm.org should determine whether they prefer me and my mods AND my antics, or no me, no mods, no antics, and did I mention? No mods.
|1.||And, really... Do *I* need more frustration at this point?|
I spend the last hour and some reading the other thread about the Aeva mod being removed and some other posts made by certain people here and I hate to say this but they all look like they should have been deleted or at least placed to a boar accessible to the staff and those other persons.It started like that. It started in private places. But they didn't give a damn. That's why I silently left my membergroup. And replaced my downloadable files with links, in order to lead people into visiting my website if they wanted to get the free versions of my mods. I wasn't happy, but that was the least they could do for me -- find a way to keep me relatively happy.
Because it does not beneft the community at large. It only makes a bad impressions and it is rather depressing. in my opinion they seem to be bitter posts from persons who thought that they had a right to be on the Staff because they spend x ampunt of time in Smf or developed x amount of mods.I'm pretty sure that "Three YEARS, FULL time" is more than enough for ANYONE to justify a SMALL reward such as being introduced into a virtual team in charge of some software. Actually, most of the members of that team joined it very easily, after a couple of months of doing support stuff on the forum. Well, I have over 5000 posts of support on that forum, as well as mods that were downloaded several hundreds of thousands of times, generating thousands and thousands of posts, a feature that none of the competing mods offer, a gallery system that actually does better than all of the standalone gallery systems in many areas, etc, etc...
Which leads me to believe that the reason those persons 'helped out or contributed' here with the only reason to be part of the staff.No. You didn't actually read my posts did you? I helped out for fun. I contributed out of love for the project. But when you spend time working on something, you want to be treated on equal terms with the other people who provide the same level of effort.
nd then they complain why it is taking Smf so long to be released. But what is the Staff going to do first, develop Smf or deal with these bitter persons?In June 2010, I was made an "apprentice" developer, being promised that this would lead into a team position (right inside the team that was perfect for me -- developing SMF itself). For a month, I was pretty much the only one working on SMF's development (mainly for the last two weeks). I worked real hard on this. After a month (the usual duration of an apprenticeship), I was told the apprenticeship would be extended forever. However, tha decision wasn't due to issues between me and the team -- it was due to the fact that they never planned to actually make me a member of the team. They only wanted my help in finishing SMF and were hoping that I'd be lured into doing it with a "membership prize" over my head.
I am sorry if some of my words seemed a little harsh and I am sorry if someone will feel offended by that but it was not my intention at all. I wanted to say soemthing about this situation. Can not we all put all the personal feelings aside and concentrare towards a greater goal whiich is the realse of SMf 2.0 Gold as soon as possible?If they wanted it out as soon as possible, they should have hired all of those who were willing to do it.
Most of my mods I believe go though extra level of checks would take weeks for my major ones like ezportal,downloads etc. Sometimes I think they are too hard about formatting issues etcTo which I couldn't resist: http://arantor.org/index.php?topic=112.msg1720#msg1720
A few weeks back I was seriously thinking of moving over to VB. It had the core forum software and a portal. However the show stopper came when I looked closer and there just was nothing close to Aeva Media :sifflote:To think that they never even bothered to contact me and ask me to port it! ;)
I'll let you read his comments on the subject for yourself - http://arantor.org/index.php?topic=112.msg1705#msg1705Impressive topic.
Nao, I did, yes, been away from the computer a bit today so not had time to write anything yet - and I'm contemplating exactly how to reply, since there's some big decisions in there, really.Yeah... Your fault! :mdr:
But yeah, vbgamer demonstrates just how full of double standards things are over there, which is why I'm doing my own thing on arantormods.com, and debated the pros and cons of publishing my new mods on sm.org, even the ones that don't have competition; I figured I don't want to subject my work to their whimsy any longer.Similar thoughts here.
(Genius is about the one word that, funnily enough, didn't occur to me.)It'll probably occur to vbgamer, to each their own!
Oh, look... I can't read that, because I'm banned.... meh. Nao explained the ban to me... admitted it was retaliatory and immature but said "so what" and then went on another rant.They still don't get it, do they? It's a two way street and you get what you give.
As much as I like and support Nao's coding skills, he has less than zero interpersonal skills. :( Which is kinda the reason he got a ban.
They still don't get it, do they? It's a two way street and you get what you give.So true. And you don't get to keep what you kill, whatever Riddick has to say about it.
I'd like to put up a new topic, but there is no where else in this forum will allow me to do as such a thing.;)Technically, this topic's purpose was also to leave a door open to non-AeMe2 customers to talk with me. I'm not opening an entire board or custom-titled topic mainly because I don't want to get another flood of support requests. I really, really, REALLY do not have time right now to provide support for Aeva Media 1.x and Aeva Lite. Actually, it's a pretty good thing I got banned... Now that I've recovered my access to the mod site, I don't really have a reason to fight against the ban anymore. I'm too busy to think about it anyway.
What I would like to see in the new commercial version, which I have no issue to purchase, is the "slide show" feature link.I see... Well, Dragooon's mod is still available on smf-media.com I believe, but it only works on SMF Media Gallery.
I know that the feature is already there, but it is not " friendly user". An average user will not know how to access (use) this feature, if he/she is lucky enough to click on any photo, then he/she MAY find out that he/she has to click on the "right arrow" to activate the slide show.
A " slide show" link on the main page of any photo album would be a big help!
One more thing, the slide show feature only plays the current page, not the whole album.I understand your concern, but it is not customary for me to implement a feature because someone pretty much says they will buy the software if it has it. My custom is to say, if you like the software, support it. If you want a feature, write it. If you can't, you may ask for it, but I'll never take "preorders" on my software. Why? Because if you're buying something only because it has feature X or Y, it means you don't care about the hundreds of features AeMe has, and you don't realize that they took me 2 years of work to implement and that, as such, if you're using AeMe1 right now and plan to keep using it, you really should be upgrading it, regardless of whether a feature will be added to it in the future.
I will support this software in a heart beat, if this feature is available
Now that I've recovered my access to the mod site...Good for you! :cool:
Good for you! :cool:I never actually lost it... I was just IP-banned and since I'm on a dynamic IP, all I needed was to change my IP, log in again, get the "you're perm-banned" message and then click the Modifications tab to be able to access my mod pages regularly. They just didn't build the ban system into SSI pages.
I never actually lost it...

They just didn't build the ban system into SSI pages.I was about 80% sure that was the case but I didn't particularly want to advertise that fact. (I have seen the code used in the Cust site before it was Curve-ified, and it's... um... ... say, do you like candy?)
They just didn't build the ban system into SSI pages.Did vbgamer code that? :mdr:
Did vbgamer code that? :mdr:I guess I wouldn't know how to do it, either, if it's not built into the SSI calls...
Nao, I have said it before and I will say it again. Aeva and SMG are what kept me from switching forum scripts a long time ago...It kept a lot of people in the SMF family, it would seem.
I was going to go to phpbb (not really because its better or worse but had something my site needs). In fact, I loved smf and aeva/smg so much, I learned a very small amount of php and crudely ported the thing I needed to smf instead.Lol... :)
Personally, if you port aeva to something else I will no doubt end up following. I just hope I can transfer my sites database.. then I will probably be porting my mod again but such is life but it is a big relief to hear that things might be getting back on track with you and smf.org.Well, I'll be porting it yes, but it'll be very easy to convert to the new direction.
I can tell that you are one of the best mod makers supporting smf and for them to close you out is crazy. You're an engineer and engineers are not usually people persons, they should understand that and account for it..I'm a nice fellow IRL, I just happen to be trying too hard at humoring people. And my jokes fall flat more often than not.
assign some people persons under you to provide more customer friendly if they want... (I doubt you would mind if other people answered all the annoying little questions).Well, if people are under me, I have to give them something else in exchange ;)
My point is I think you were/are too good of a resource to loose.. much less throw away.Don't worry. My energy is rarely if ever wasted.
Actually it's easy to do: is_not_banned();Did vbgamer code that? :mdr:I guess I wouldn't know how to do it, either, if it's not built into the SSI calls...
Well, its a BBC for phpbb that adds support for Guild Wars skills and builds.. It is actually a lot like Arantor's Aion bbc mod except the data (pictures, jscript and databases) are all kept on your server instead of like Aions system where it pulls from the aion website.I was going to go to phpbb (not really because its better or worse but had something my site needs). In fact, I loved smf and aeva/smg so much, I learned a very small amount of php and crudely ported the thing I needed to smf instead.Lol... :)
What was that thing?
Well, its a BBC for phpbb that adds support for Guild Wars skills and builds..Ah, yes I remember... You offered me to help play through the main quest in GW1, didn't you? ;) (Well, never had time to relaunch it anyway...)
Arantor and Nao, are there any books or tutorials that would stand out in your mind to help someone (like me) learn php (and php sql integrations.. something I have never gotten) properly.I learned it all by reading through the SMF code back in the day... :^^;:
Ah, yes I remember... You offered me to help play through the main quest in GW1, didn't you? ;)Yep, consider it a standing offer if you ever have time.
static $in_page = 0;
And I need to keep a few incentives for the 2.x branch, eh :sifflote::snif:
* Rewrote YouTube embedding to use their data API. This fixes permanently
broken lookups after a certain number of videos were embedded.
* If a YouTube video is no longer available, a red exclamation mark
will now indicate it next to the video's title.
* If an item description is short enough, center it on the page,
instead of left-aligning it. The limit is hardcoded to 200 characters.
! If an item's filesize was changed after it was uploaded, Aeva Media
will show a warning. This usually means that the admin attempted to
re-upload pictures but did it in ASCII mode, rather than Binary.
! Random items in homepage are now shown as a filestack if requested.
! Fixed broken comments area when using code tags inside a comment.
! Fixed broken captions when using the SMG tag on a SSI page, if the caption
has spaces in it. This is due to admins not preparsing strings as required.
! Fixed broken captions when using the SMG tag, if caption had square brackets.
Version 2.01 August 14, 2010
+ Added support for HTML5 audio on audio files, with fallback if incompatible.
* Rewrote much of the download manager-type presentation.
+ Added "Icons-only" alternative descriptions to item boxes.
! Fixed search engine logic, as well as page index not showing up in search results.
! Fixed string cutter, which, apparently, didn't properly restore entities... Eh?!
* Download count is now used as view count if a document can only be downloaded, not viewed.
! Fixed various error messages that showed up on strict installs of PHP5. Or something.
+ No longer telling you a new version is available, if you're using an unreleased beta.
- Removed support for BBC News embed, as they made it too complicated. Heck.
+ Added support for MP4 files at Ebaumsworld.
Version 2.0 July 28, 2010
! Google Maps embeds were broken when added at the beginning of a message
! Fixed crashes on some servers when embedding pictures through MGalleryItem.php
! Fixed videos not properly embedding when shown through a box or album-type embed
! When showing an item more than once in a page, further occurrences would break.
! Replaced 'x' with the proper math sign for showing picture width/height
! Avoid double ampersands in embeds. They may work but they're unwanted.
! Avoid box shadows on generic icons, in case the website's custom CSS adds any.
* Don't show item's uploader in album pages, if it was uploaded by the album owner.
|1.||This was broken in 1.4 yesterday. Fixed earlier today.|
Thanks for the continued work on AEVA Lite... I know SOME people use it... LOL.Yeah... I never planned to stop updating it actually. Just supporting it... It's too much of a hassle. At the end of the day you must decide what to focus on. Aeva Lite was too successful for its own sake.
I use the full version on 40konline, so I can't help test the lite version... Although you changelog reminds me that I have to upgrade the 2.x version there.Well you bought it after all ;)
BTW: I discovered that the lack of ban affecting the mod, theme and mantis site is PURPOSEFUL (it was not missed or mis-coded) (oh, and there is an ssi_ban() function)Arantor kindly pointed out that simply calling is_not_banned() is enough to ban someone on a SSI page too. (I didn't test, though... I don't ban people on my website. :sifflote:)
Oh and Nao wasn't a team player...How can I *be* a team player when I never was let into the team in the first place? (And that's not a rethorical question...)
I see. He is just so arrogant.Well, sure. I'm telling the truth about being exploited, and I'm being told it's a load of bollocks and banned, and *I'm* the arrogant one...
You do now need to be a member in order to download 1.3aNo... It's never been the case. How would the download counter reach into the thousands when registration is mandatory? People can even write here without being registered...
I don't think that was entirely deliberate. But note that Aeva is right at the top, next to... wait, what? What the hell am I doing there in big letters?! :/Believe it or not, you're a big influence :P
Oh, the person who said you weren't a team player also told me that he's glad I'm not on the team, because apparently that he respected me meant I had to automatically show him respect. (Nope: in my world, things you say and do earn you respect, not just receive it because you give it)Hmm... Strange.
Btw, you should have seen the stuff Robbo posted in the Charter board months ago. He's not really much different to you in reality, though I can see why he thinks differently.No, I haven't seen what he posted. What was it about?
'mlist' => array(
// Aeva Media changes 'media' => array( 'title' => (isset($txt['aeva_gallery']) ? $txt['aeva_gallery'] : 'Media') . (!allowedTo('aeva_access_unseen') || empty($user_info['aeva_unseen']) || $user_info['aeva_unseen'] == -1 ? '' : ' [<b>' . $user_info['aeva_unseen'] . '</b>]'), 'href' => $scripturl . '?action=media', 'show' => allowedTo('aeva_access'), 'sub_buttons' => !allowedTo('aeva_access_unseen') || empty($user_info['aeva_unseen']) || $user_info['aeva_unseen'] == -1 ? array() : array( 'aeva_home' => array( 'title' => $txt['aeva_home'], 'href' => $scripturl . '?action=media', 'show' => true, ), 'aeva_unseen' => array( 'title' => $txt['aeva_unseen'], 'href' => $scripturl . '?action=media;sa=unseen', 'show' => true, 'is_last' => true, ), ), ), // End Aeva Media changes
You cannot upload that type of file. The only allowed extensions are mp3,ogg,ogm,avi,txt,doc,pdf,jpg,gif,png,torrent,rar,zip,tar.gz,srt,ssa,asx,3gp.any help would be appreciated
i know there is no support for AM 1 but here goesAnd... What exactly didn't you get in that? :unsure:
Better question: why use AeMe if you already paid out for the other piece of crap?i know there is no support for AM 1 but here goesAnd... What exactly didn't you get in that? :unsure:
Better question: why use AeMe if you already paid out for the other piece of crap?well perhaps the piece of crap as you put it is due to expire and i was thinking of purchasing AM after trying the free version. but lets face it would after the responses i have received ?
As for what Robbo said, it was basically an indictment of the Charter system - remember at the time RC3 came out, the Charters didn't get a free preview, they got it no earlier than anyone else, so it got into a huge argument over why people bothered.Hmm... You probably remember why the CMs didn't get a preview. RC3 was very late, and there were rumors that SMF was dead, because of the team split. So, basically, they pushed RC3 to an early release just so they could show the ex-teamies that they were still in control. (Of course, soon after the release of RC3, all of the dev team resigned... Err... What a mess.)
He was fuming, and some of your and his arguments seem a little familiar, you know? (Because at that point, it felt like a PR stunt and that the people who would be able to inject life were being trampled on)I'm afraid I really don't see the connection with me here.
Better question: why use AeMe if you already paid out for the other piece of crap?(Both AeMe and SGP are time-limited licenses.)
well perhaps the piece of crap as you put it is due to expire and i was thinking of purchasing AM after trying the free version. but lets face it would after the responses i have received ?1/ I'm not your thing.
hello....anybody can help me to modifiying / anybody have an addons for aeva media gallery v1.4 free edition to limiting upload file per day ( 1 file/day ) ?????pls.......thanks beforeThis is not a support topic. Please create your own topic here: http://aeva.noisen.com/support/
sorry about my bad english
I'm *not* providing support to free customers, because (1) I don't have the time (you'll understand why in a few months and then you'll probably apologize for wasting my time at a critical moment), (2) the SMF team banned me and I have no reasons and no interest in helping them.
Thanks ;)It's Maru-chan. An aggressive cat from the Anime Azumanga Daioh. ^_^
Nice avatar. Where from?
I'm surprised no one seems to give a damn about this beta...It works as expected.
I mean, so many people sent so much time to ask for an update to Aeva Lite...
For this! :rolleyes:
I Luv your Mod!!! This is a Terrible thing that happened. I have SMF 1.1.11 and Aeva ~ Auto-Embed Video & Audio 7.0 It just stopped imbedding Video and now posts the link? I have SMF Media Gallery 2.0.5 I would like to leave the Gallery alone and unistall Auto-Embed Video & Audio 7.0 and reinstall the Embed Video and Audio. Which version do I install? I don't see where it informs of capatiblity? Thanx

And doubly so, in a thread whose title begins with "No support!"
I hate nuke, vbulletin, phpbb and all that other junk out thereIf you don't like it, then don't use it. I'm using phpBB quit long time now and I love it. I also registered on many boards which use phpBB or wbb or SMF and all boards are great. Because you perhaps cannot use phpBB or you are not comfortable, it doesn't mean, phpBB is junk. -_-
And from what I can see, the option to disable MP3 looping is not yet available in AeMe2. If it is, it's obtusely buried somewhere, and I missed it.Nope, I don't think I added any option to that... :unsure:
Just updated/upgraded my live site to Aeva Media 2.02.I'm surprised no one seems to give a damn about this beta...It works as expected.
I mean, so many people sent so much time to ask for an update to Aeva Lite...
For this! :rolleyes:
And yes, some of us do give a damm about your work... all of it. :)
My live site is using an early copy of Aeva Media so I may not use this Aeva Lite there, but wanted a copy of it anyway.
Hello,Yeah, I saw your post over there, too. Didn't have time to answer though (very busy.)
I'm the dude who got mislead by the gits at autoembed, they took some of the code from this site and re-licensed it as LGPL3 without authorisation, I didn't know that until I read a thread at wordpress.org (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-autoembed-for-wordpress-license-violation-in-autoembed).
Anyway I broke connection with those gits, remove autoembed link from my blog, removed two google project page that contained autoembed and removed autoembed from mybb.com repository to prevent any further spreading and without being asked to do so. However I do feel responsible for not doing my own research, although I did notice the credit in stubs.php, didn't bother to google that up, how many would of bothered anyway?No problem, man. I appreciated that I was credited for my work, and reckoned that it was done without malicious intentions (even from the 'gits' you mention.)
Is there a possibility to put comments in the lightbox images / highslide, below in the white box next to the navigation arrows??Hmm, no.
Perhaps this option already exist in the retail version?I don't think there's a point...
Something like that.
There are plenty of ways of automating embedding from multiple websites, Aeva's is just one of the more efficient.Wordpress has oEmbed as well as embed handler (http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds) built in since version 2.9, oEmbed fetches the html embed code and caches it to a blog post (or page), so it only fetches once unless the blog post is updated, so it practically efficient, the issues I have with oEmbed is that some providers return object code that is not xhtml1.1/html5 compliant and some return iframe which I really despise of, but the good thing is that wordpress has added filters to oEmbed which allows plugins author like myself to take advantage, and so I did. (http://cj-jackson.com/2010/09/24/html5-multimedia-framework/)
I may relicense it in a few months (no promise but it's something I'd discussing on a private board), with a less restrictive license (BSD-like), so you'll be able to include the file if you're still into it.Or use the file to extend WP embed site list without creating new shortcodes (bbcode or whatever it called on smf). :gnehe:

I should remind those 'gits' that there are no such thing as borrowing without asking! :mdr:Happens to me every day... I'm used to it!
Will there be any support for a failed 1.4 upgrade in the near future?In a thread marked "no support"...? Probably not...
Just as a matter of interest is there a general discussion board here. As most of the other boards are in French I am finding it hard to see :sifflote: :niark: Just a place to chat about SMF in generalThere are the official SMF Boards. Why would you want to talk here about SMF? Or did you mean a SMF aeva lite board?
Of course Aeva Media customers may discuss anything they like in the Aeva Media private boards. I'm not picky. :PAh thanks I just think at times when you become part of a forum it is nice to chat about other stuff besides the normal this is not working or I want that and so on :sifflote:
That's pretty much the idea. A forum's success is based on how it manages to compel its community with its features. But a community's success is measured against how much they discuss OTHER things than the website's original goal. I think ;)+1 entirely
Unfortunately, the confirmation process is stalled. I'm supposed to be confirming my credit card number but it won't show up in my logs. Grmpf...Call your bank that issued the card to find out those 4 digits from paypal. I always call the bank and do not wait till the statement reaches me.
Wow this place has changed so much, i can't seem to find the old support forums (my post history reveals nothing, was the old forums deleted?)Nope, but it was moved to a customer-only section. I really, really, really couldn't cope with the numerous requests anymore... I'm now completely cut off from the free AeMe community, I'm afraid. But if problems arise, I'm pretty sure one of my faithful customers will mention the problem to me ;)
Anyhoo, Nao, today i updated my Aeva from 1.3 to 1.4a and the view count for videos is broken again :(I... didn't change anything in that area, I believe...?
I know your support is limited and appreciate all the help you can give but can you tell me which file i need to edit that controls the view count for the light-boxes for videos? (this seems to be an on going issue with every new release i upgrade to and yes i uninstall completely before installing the new one :P)I would only say -- if you're serious about video counts, then disable Highslide. I know it sucks, but Highslide isn't very cooperative.
I would only say -- if you're serious about video counts, then disable Highslide. I know it sucks, but Highslide isn't very cooperative.As an easy alternative, i'm just gonna remove the line of code from the portal block instead of it always showing "Views: 0"
Maybe in the future I'll change the system to use another library. Or I'll just give up on that stupid slideshow and just use Highslide as it was used before the AeMe days.
That should solve the problem for now, i don't see the point of removing highslide completely, too much work for such a small thing and i'm moving away from SMF by the end of the year anyway :PDon't tell me... XenForo? :mdr:
Jooma in conjunction with another forum software is the future, with SMF there is too much bullshit involved and the shit is definitely going to hit the fan on a major scale eventually (we have seen signs of this already, it's just a matter of time before it goes downhill completely).I completely agree, except in two areas:
So i'd just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and assistant over the last 8 months and to wish you luck on your future endeavors :)Thanks ;)
SMF is my favorite forum software by far, i don't even think the paid for solutions are as cool as it (and certainly not worth paying a 6 monthly fee for)I can only agree... I'd rather use FluxBB or, forgive me, phpBB before being coerced into paying $150 (or more!!) for a software package that barely does better than SMF...
so i hope they do make it open source and its future is secured, i may just come back to it after i've played around with phpbb3 :PWell, phpBB3 really isn't worth much of your time. I like their main theme and it's a long-lived project so I respect them, but... Have fun with their plugin system...
Well, phpBB3 really isn't worth much of your time. I like their main theme and it's a long-lived project so I respect them, but... Have fun with their plugin system...Hey, I'm using phpBB3 and I'm fully okay with the mod / plugin system. For the version 4 they planned to make a better mod system, that should be much more easier, than the current one.
Strictly speaking it is possible to write a fully licence compliant Joomla / SMF bridge.*And* there will be plenty of bridges available once SMF goes BSD, I'm sure.
Hello, I have just installed aeva on my boards and I cannot get the auto-embed feature to work. Probably something I am doing or not doing, but still some help would be appreciated..I do not believe Nao is providing support for AeMe 1.4 or Aeva Lite at this time, especially not in a thread with "No support!" in the thread's title...
@Ransim - Just follow the instructions in AeMe and you'll be fine. Uninstall both SMG and the embedder, then install AeMe. No data lost, just remember to (re)set the permissions profiles after the install so your members can post media ^_^Thank you kindly. This is going to be my evening project then, having RSS Feeds for the galleries will definitely rock.
It's a known issue, it's mentioned on the mod site over at sm.org (in my parallel changelog.)Which lines in what file?
Fixable by removing the htmlspecialchars call from these places. Too busy to look into it though.
it's mentioned on the mod site over at sm.org (in my parallel changelog.)Please read the fine changelog on the Aeva Free page on simplemachines.org.
Does the bug i mentioned above exist in v2.0?Only in 2.03 and 1.4a. Earlier versions don't have the problem, but they also don't have the security fix.
Is the viewing bug on videos fixed also?You mean view count? It's not a bug per se...
At this point in the game, i'll begrudgingly buy the software if it means i actually get some support, lolWell, as I always say: I'm not begging for anyone's money. If you buy the 2.x branch expecting a bug fix, you'll be disappointed because I committed myself to backporting to 1.x any bug fix I'll put into 2.x. (Well, "committed" is a big word... Let's just say if it's easy enough to fix a bug, I'll backport it. If it's a complicated mess to fix, then 1.x users will have to live with it, but so far I've seen no such problem.)
I don't and never have needed the extra functions of v2.0, i just need the free version to actually be 'bug free' :/Again: not a bug.
$20 is a reasonable price to me, only thing that's always put me off is the limited 1 year support, doesn't sound like a good deal to me, what does that actually mean anyway?It just means you lose access to the private boards after a year. Meaning you can't download new updates and ask questions. But you can use the 2.x branch forever on your site, obviously.
Does it mean no more help on bugs / problems after a period of 1 year; after 365 days i have to pay another $20 just to get some useful information / advice from your time?Well, you can always try SMF Gallery Pro. It's only $50 per year. Oh, add $30 for the video component. So, it's only $80 per year, sorry. It's still a very cheap deal. The crappy software, I mean, not the price.
How would you know how long i've actually had the product for?It's indicated in your profile.
I suspect you'd probably just release v3 and discontinue support for v2 i guess.Well, I would have to reach v3 to begin with.... And I don't see why I would do that. I've been working on AeMe for over 2 years, and made it a great product. 99% of its features are free. I'm selling the remaining 1%. Actually, I'm not selling them, I'm offering them to donating users. I don't like calling my users 'customers', really. If you don't want to donate for the pleasure you got from the free software, then you don't have to, but you won't have the extra features I'm offering to honest users.

|1.||No, still not porn.|
so I'll try to be more specific.Yes, it's possible to do that. However, AeMe doesn't do it currently. This is because it turns Google Maps links into remote embeds, while a KMZ file would be a local embed. Same function called to show the map, but different code path.
Every time we upload a photographic location, we also put a KMZ file as an attachment.
since I don't know aeva lite or aeva comm. I was wondering if its possible to generate a google map in the page we make an upload by use of the attached KMZ file? (I mean a map based on the coordinates or the included kmz file witch shows a pinpoint on the map of the location, not sure what you mean by it generates thumbnails?
my question has nothing to do with pictures, I just want a google map in every post we make
Is aeva comm. capable to do this?
What I mean is that it can probably be done but I don't have plans to.Citerso the only thing i want to know is aeva comm.capable to generate a google map in the post,Yes.Citerin other words will there be a map rendered in the post like it do with an attached image file?.Hmm... To generate the thumbnail, no, you don't need one. And I don't think you need one either for the map in itself. Unless you want to show a pin in the map, in which case yeah you'll probably need one... But it's been a long time since I played with that.
I suppose I'll need a google map api key also for this to work?
Can you explain the FORK in the software?Well, there's a topic for that in this board.
Doesnt this mean that this will go away for SMF users?You can still use it. But I said many months ago that I wouldn't release new versions of AeMe 1.x, only security fixes if anything wrong is found...
I have to admit that SMF is just a forum but with AEVA it make a really good package. Half the stuff that I do on my forum would not be possible with out it.Yeah, I believe Aeva can be a strong selling point for the forum package... I could even envision people installing our fork just to enable the gallery, no forum.
Im really not wanting to put my users through a complete website change.It's a fork, it's not new software. It'll have a SMF converter so you can import the site easily. Your theme, if it's a custom one, will have to be ported. But the new styling system will make life so much easier for themers...
I found your other post that explains more about the fork and I am anticipating it. I also read that PortaMx has no interest... I hope this may change its also a good package.What exactly does it have that other portals don't?
Anyway Keep up the good work, having the gallery and forum in one package will make updating much easier. :)Well, the point is to have modders use the plugin system as much as possible. So as to make upgrading the forum even less of a pain. We'll see about that...
Also just a side question how much data base changes are expected? are the tables going to be relatively the same or totally different?Relatively the same.
I'd say 95% will be the same.I don't know about that... depends how far we actually go with the changes I have mentioned elsewhere I'd like to do. If they all get implemented... it's a much bigger change than 5%.
What exactly does it have that other portals don't?Mostly a graphical single page editor... but I would prefer if it would use the BBC editor why have two different editors.
The block in block feature is pretty cool as is the sub-forums if they ever get fixed to where they are not visible on both sides. I don't think any other portal has those features.What exactly does it have that other portals don't?Mostly a graphical single page editor... but I would prefer if it would use the BBC editor why have two different editors.
Well, only 40% of vbgamer's mods were given to him, and really, the rest are not that well coded. I remember a bit back, a list of bad style matters and borderline vulnerabilities was handed to vbgamer and there was an actual argument with him. (For example, it was possible to add items to non existent albums in SMF Gallery Lite)That would actually be awesome as i read the post about him ripping you off for the 250.00 i wanted to buy that from him but i didn't he seemed shady and a bit lazy i mean who runs a support forum for items you code and sell on a old smf 1.1.11 with the default theme?> I mean make it attractive then i noticed he wasnt even using his store to sell and process his transaction to sell his store. Talk about no faith in your work. But on a side note if you were to build a site store mod for sites to sell stuff and a site marketplace for members to sell i would be first in line to buy it.
Oh, and queries in templates. But apparently that was from when rules were 'more lax'. Despite the mods still being updated.
I find myself at a strange juncture, I don't want to write any more mods generally but I'm tempted to go make mods to replace his, ones that are well written and will mean there is no reason for him to stick around because everything he touches isn't friendly.
I also reminded the team yesterday that he is blatantly exempt from rules, after publishing two mods he hasn't even tested (one by his own admission), and both I spent time fixing previously.
As for vbgamer -- of course he wouldn't use his software on his website. Remember, he's trying to sell it, not to make people run away screaming!Actually, he does use his download pro mod on his site now.
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=200401.0i posted there but no 1 seen to have solution
Unless you're an AeMe 2.0 user then you should be able to see there commercial support board here.
Well, I doubt you'll get support on the SMF board, seeing how Nao is post banned, and the only reason I posted today was to re-assert the rights to my work on something.i have been reading posts in this site, and yeah i do feel bad for what happened between you guys and smf
Well, it might help if you provide some details so we don't have to guess, like Aeva version, SMF version, whether there's anything in the error log, when it stopped working, what type of media it's not working on, that kind of thing.ok so i went through all the keywords of the whole 200+ pages of that thread and i think i found the solution, thanks
Of course, there's no guarantee of support either way, Nao and I are both really busy on non-Aeva projects right now (not that I'm officially affiliated with Aeva anyway), but support is more likely for the paid version. Since then it's not in a thread marked 'no support'.
(not that I'm officially affiliated with Aeva anyway),Not that it would bother me :P
We'll definitely offer a mod site, although it'll probably be 'cooler' than SMF'sThe best way to do this is simply giving the option to sort out compatible mods then select the category. Nothing more annoying then finding the perfect mod and then realizing its not for V2.
Is it actually confirmed that the current SGL/SGP converters don't work for recent versions of that shitty mod?The DB structure appears to have changed slightly since his 'complete rewrite' in 3.0 so no, I don't think it works. But as the reason I'm out $250 is apparently that I was planning to do a better version that 'apparently' was based on his code (what? I'd reuse his crap? I don't think so), I take it as read that nothing based on his code is allowed - which includes converters.
Or better, make shit version independent in the first place, like WordPress mostly does...Wordpress is pretty shit when I tried a category search with wp_query(); in index.php theme template, it failed, but with category.php it worked. I actually made a improve version of the shortcode api similar to the one in wordpress which honours user level while wordpress does not and I plan on using that version that with my tag-based bulletin board that I'm building for rockforums.tk using the symfony framework which has a better database abstraction layer compared to wordpress.
Oh, I'm not arguing that it's pretty poor, but at least it does make a reasonable attempt at being version independent.What would you suggest instead?
As for other things, WP is pretty poor generally, I have no idea why it's so popular.
http://aeva.noisen.com/download/ is where the downloads are available. If you have purchased the paid version, you will be able to access it from there. It's even linked from the list of boards in http://aeva.noisen.com/If you are in for a year without any updates that I use modification .. I want to get paid subscription .. What is mean by warranty?
Note that support is not guaranteed at all, it is simply as/when/if we have time, energy and opportunity since all energy is really going towards Wedge right now.
Wow thank god I found this forum. Guys I'm dying for some help.I am not sure that where you can get the support from this forum. I am not sure that I can help you as much as I can from this post either. Love to!
I use to run Aeva Media 1.4c (I think) on my SMF RC3 forum and then I used the large upgrade and move onto SMF RC5 but now I install Aeva Media and it breaks the /index.php?action=media page. Please provide me with a solution guys as I run a comic book website and the media is one of the most important sections in my site. I don't know if it's an issue with the DB tables but I could really use some help. Now I noticed the topic title... Could someone atleast help me on PM? Author ? Arantor? (this is agent47 from DzinerStudio BTW)
P.S: Guys what's with the french verification questions. You gotta understand that it's not just french talking people that coming in here man. No offense intended, just that it gets really frustrating. Took me really long to sign up as I had to figure out the verification question on the register page and now this...Thank god I got it wrong so many times that it repeated the registration verification question...
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.
- 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.
The following post does say there is support for kind customers, I thought I asked nicely?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.||If it weren't closed, that would be the place to ask for support on the paid version... right?|
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.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.
This may be an awkward question, but which of the SMF Mods would you recommend to manage a picture gallery.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.
Do you have a non-commercial version of Aeva?As live said, yes, it's on the mod site. Hint: it's currently the most popular mod.
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:Aeva does that just fine, even the free version.
Thanks, and again, my condolences. I've been put on probation from several forums, and banned from one. It stings.The banning was only one of several unpleasant episodes, and not even the last one of them.
the url tags that gets automatically wrapped around any http or http links that i post, if i code these links first.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.
If you can access it, here is the topic and there are many others who are having the same problem.Oh, anyone can read the topic, just that you do know that neither of us can reply there, right?
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.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.
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!!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.Citerthe url tags that gets automatically wrapped around any http or http links that i post, if i code these links first.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.
It would be tragic and regretful if Nao were to let go of this wonderful modification.It would be more tragic if people actually read what's been posted first.
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.
|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.|
No, it's not deleted, it's just not really being updated...but may be it's in support board which i do not looking now ? after updating forum i am loss Aeva block in Ultimate profile, and after restoring it from old files (function up_block_pictures() ) it not show the photos from Aeva-gallery. I think that it is necessary to make changes in one file, but I do not remember what and where. Can You help me?
Giving you back access btw!What is btw?
I think he means he's giving Arantor access again.I want access too! and i want paid it. How it can be paid?
|1.||So if you do spend a few bucks (as that is all it is) for the paid version, it is with the caveat that you probably won't get prompt support for it, if any.|
It's hard to justify sellin something I no longer support. If people are ready to get through some French to buy it then they're probably smart enough not to need support anyway.Well, I'm capable to understand French, and smart enough to install a mod, but only if it works.
And no support really. Although Arantor is always there. I don't know how he does it ;)
You may say I'm not trying to sell any copies of AeMe2. That would be true. It's hard to justify sellin something I no longer support.Given that quote above and the fact that the newer version will be free in wedge, any chance of you making V2 free? Been using V1 for a couple of years now but my community group don't have much cash.
