@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.

Just a quick one.

Is there a guide on this site to making custom Avea portal blocks for Simple Portal?

I need multiple blocks showing different albums / information, one in particular i would to update with each new comment posted.

Cheers in advance

When i edit a long description on an Avea gallery entry, it converts the breaks into HTML code:

It's a known issue, it's mentioned on the mod site over at sm.org (in my parallel changelog.)
Fixable by removing the htmlspecialchars call from these places. Too busy to look into it though.

Which lines in what file?

Avea has so many files, lol

Please read the fine changelog on the Aeva Free page on simplemachines.org.

Does the bug i mentioned above exist in v2.0? Is the viewing bug on videos fixed also?

At this point in the game, i'll begrudgingly buy the software if it means i actually get some support, lol

I don't and never have needed the extra functions of v2.0, i just need the free version to actually be 'bug free' :/

$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?

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?

How would you know how long i've actually had the product for? 

I suspect you'd probably just release v3 and discontinue support for v2 i guess.

It means that from the time of purchasing, you get 1 year to post in the support boards if you need help. Alternatively you can hope that someone will help you out on the sm.org topic - which btw, Nao cannot reply to himself.

It's handled as a paid subscription.

Only in 2.03 and 1.4a. Earlier versions don't have the problem, but they also don't have the security fix.
Which, honestly, I don't really see how it could be exploited, but better be safe than sorry.
The problem with preparsecode() is that this thing is not properly documented by SMF. We're supposed to use it but then they don't tell why and how. And Aeva Media is based on early code by Dragooon, who did things differently (in a safe way, too), but this conflicts with preparsecode(). Really, it's just as easy as that. I need to look into it a bit more. I'm kinda stuck on my other free project right now, see. I'll try to release an update by tomorrow.

You mean view count? It's not a bug per se...

Well, 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.)

Again: not a bug.

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.

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.

It's indicated in your profile.

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.

All I'm asking for is not your money but your respect.
Just don't treat me like Akyhne or some of the SMF teamies do, and I'll be happy enough to keep releasing updates. Albeit less frequently than before -- I didn't have that other project on my hands until a few months ago.

Aeva Media 1.4b is out for the Free version's users.
It fixes the logic problem in v1.4a where some
 tags would show up when editing descriptions.

A Big Thankyou, Nao. v1.4b is working like a dream.  It installed so much faster than earlier versions too. :cool:
