I've released v7.1 on the mod site earlier today and it's been downloaded a few times... Haven't had feedback on it, so it must mean it works. (lol. I know that if it was broken, plenty of people would have come to the official topic to insult me :P)

Actually, on the official topic, someone just posted to thank me for the mod... But he called me "Neo" and the mod "Avea"... Is it that hard to spell my stuff? :P
And he asks for an alternative to PayPal... He should ask the SMF team for that! I didn't program that area...

Wow, that is just how not to do things to ex-developers. I was on the site and read some topics and ... wow.

Hmm.. I never tested you mod, but I'll looking, how it is. ^^

Actually, it's

Code: [Select]
static $in_page = 0;
Otherwise the code's purpose is defeated. I forgot to backport that line.
I'll fix the downloadable package in a sec'. :edit: Done.

Disabling Gallery (for admins) wasn't backported. It's actually more code than what you'd think. And I need to keep a few incentives for the 2.x branch, eh :sifflote:

Well...
Here's the complete changelog, based on changelog entries for the 2.x branch.
I removed about 5 or 6 lines altogether (+ Foxy features which represented a lot more, but you already knew that.)
Don't tell me it's *not enough*....... :rolleyes:

* 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.[1]
! 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.
! Fixed various Javascript bugs caused by the galurl variable not being defined.
* 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.

Hey Nao...   

Thanks for the continued work on AEVA Lite... I know SOME people use it... LOL. 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.

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)

Hey there,

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.

Well you bought it after all ;)
And Aeva Lite isn't compatible with Aeva Media, whatever the branch. They don't use the same sitelist download URL, for starters.

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:)

How about turning that perm-ban into at least a post-ban, BTW? So that I can access the beta boards, now that I'm, err... Somehow active again. Although not in a 'posting' capacity.

The ban was switched to a post ban yesterday. :P

Don't forget that a post ban means no PMs either...

It means not sending PMs. But I can read mine at least...
Well well.

http://www.simplemachines.org/...unity/index.php?topic=397276.0Funny how I'm next to "bugs"... Is that a reference to my record as a beta tester? :sifflote:
And my position is right on spot, too... I'm at the bottom, crushed by the entire rest.

BTW, nice to know what the beta team thinks of me when I'm not supposed to be able to read...

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...)
Quote from Robbo_
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...
And thanks runic for posting just after him, and totally ignoring his comment. -_-

Also, to YogiBear:

You do now need to be a member in order to download 1.3a
No... 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...
They only need to be registered to purchase AeMe2, which is only logical because access is tied to an account.

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?! :/

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)

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.
