Title: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: hartiberlin on 9 November 2010 21h47
Hi,
there are reports, that the latest version of AEVA 1.4b does not work
correctly with SMF RC4 and PortaMX.

See here:

http://portamx.com/topic_2078.msg11846.html#msg11846

What about the AEVA 2.04 version ?

I had no time yet to test this.
I will try to test it this night.

If anybody else has got those problems or solutions,
please post it here.
Many thanks.

P.S: Was in 2.04 version already the drop-shadow text overlay integrated
to mark the uploaded pictures or do I have to do this with another program ?

What would be the best freeware program to do this... easily ?
I really need drop-shadow text overlay.
Without drop-shadow, the text just is barely readable on many pics...

Many thanks.

Regards, Stefan.

Since 2.04 was published before RC4, and RC4 did a lot of banal things, it's probable that work is needed, but after the way the team carry on, I don't know what Nao's plans are with respect to AeMe updated for RC4, I know nothing I've written is being updated.
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: hartiberlin on 10 November 2010 2h16
Maybe Nao can give us an update, if he will soon have a look at it,
or are you both to busy to write this SMF fork ?

Many thanks in advance.

Regards, Stefan.

Post by: Arantor on 10 November 2010 2h20
Well, it's not just about that. I doubt you've read the full goings-on that prompted us to start the fork, let's just say that it didn't end well, and neither of us want to do anything to help SMF.

Post by: hartiberlin on 11 November 2010 1h57
So can I use now SMF 2.04 RC4 and PortaMX 0.990 and also use AEVA 2.04
or will this not work ?

I will try it now on a test site and let you know what problems I will still see.

Many thanks.

Regards, Stefan.

Post by: Arantor on 11 November 2010 2h12
It might work, it might not... Aeva Media 2.04 came out before RC4. There are lots of changes in RC4. You do the math.
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: hartiberlin on 11 November 2010 12h08
Okay, I am testing it right now and the installation went so far okay.


Until now I have installed:

1.    Aeva Media    2.04    [ Deinstallieren ] [ Dateien auflisten ] [ Lschen ]
2.    Ad Managment    2.3.6.4    [ Deinstallieren ] [ Dateien auflisten ] [ Lschen ]
3.    Sitemap    2.2.0    [ Deinstallieren ] [ Dateien auflisten ] [ Lschen ]
4.    PortaMx v0.990    0.990    [ Deinstallieren ] [ Dateien auflisten ] [ Lschen ]
5.    Downloads System    1.3.4.4    [ Deinstallieren ] [ Dateien auflisten ] [ Lschen ]
6.    MetaTags Modification    1.5    [ Dateien auflisten ] [ Lschen ]

Now I need to still install SimpleSEF and also test a few new picture uploads..


How can I easily password protect a gallery ?
Is this somehow possible ?

Many thanks.

Regards, Stefan.

Posted on 11 November 2010 11h03

Now I installed SimpleSEF 1.1.1
and the whole forum crashed...
I can not access it anymore, so I have to see,
how I can edit some files via my
Hosting control panel ! Damn !  :niark:
Posted on 11 November 2010 11h16

Hmm,
now how can I manually disable SimpleSEF inside the database ?

Or is it enough to clear the .htaccess file ?
Posted on 11 November 2010 11h36

Damn, the variable inside the database table smf_settings
simplesef_enable was set to 0
but when I set it to 1
it does not change.

The forum hangs and does not build up and only
delivers a blank page...

Must I now install all packages again and overwrite them ?

Or how could I fix it manually via  the database ?
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: Arantor on 11 November 2010 12h37
If you have a problem with SimpleSEF ask its author in the appropriate place.
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: hartiberlin on 11 November 2010 12h42
Yes, thanks, I posted it already at the SMF forum.
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: Arantor on 11 November 2010 12h47
Oh and in answer to your question about password protecting a gallery, edit the album in question and enter the password in the last option in the privacy section (near the bottom)
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: hartiberlin on 11 November 2010 22h57
@Arantor,
many thanks for this info about password protection.

Great, that this feature is already implemented.

Did Nao or you also implemented stamping the pictures during/after upload in the 2.04 version ,
so it could get a copyright watermark text somewhere in the picture visible ?

I could not test this yet , as my new installation is still crashed and I first need to
fix this SimpleSEF crashing my forum.

Many thanks.

Regards, Stefan.

@Arantor,
many thanks for this info about password protection.

Great, that this feature is already implemented.
It was implemented by Dragooon long ago. I left it in although I wanted to remove it after I myself added the ability to allow users of an album on a per-case basis. This finetuning is much better but I guess some people like having passwords ;)

Arantor never worked on AeMe BTW (*so far*... :gnehe:), just for the record. He's just very proficient in everything he looks into.
No, I always kinda refused to implement that (it's one of the most requested features).
In the end, another mod called Watermark something, added a module for AeMe, and I gave my approval to it. So, basically, you can add watermarking yes.
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: hartiberlin on 11 November 2010 23h55
Ohh, great,
where can I find this watermark plugin ?


By the way:
Could be, that the error is there, cause I was running the forum in German language,
before I installed the SimpleSEF 1.1.1

How can I set my forum now into English language to see,
if this fixes it ?

Can I just set this inside  the SQL database somewhere ?

Many thanks again.
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: Arantor on 12 November 2010 0h24
I never saw the plugin, but it can't be good for the server if you have a lot of stuff going on.

And really, if you have an issue with SMF itself, this is not the place to ask (as the board description says). It sounds like SimpleSEF has really done a number on your install, SlammedDime should be the one to help you.
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: Nao/Gilles on 12 November 2010 8h35
hartiberlin, look for 'watermark' in the sm.org mod site, obviously... (?)
Then you should be able to find an AeMe plugin for that mod in their official topic or somethin'.

SlammedDime made SimpleSEF? Well, screw him...

Switch your forum to English by adding ?language=english to the URL...
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: Arantor on 12 November 2010 9h27
(More likely, adding /language,english/ to the end of the URL in SimpleSEF's case)

"He hade me, because I have disagree to the SMF fork"

I don't "hade" you, I never said I hated you anywhere, and it is not the case.
I do, however, have a problem with you as a person, and I will address that below.
The ONLY reason I contacted you was that I was annoyed by how the SMF team wouldn't listen to your performance improvement suggestions because you have a strange way of talking to people. And I can relate. So I took the liberty to actually invite you to do that job on our forum, because we would be willing to discuss them, and actually implement them into our fork.
So you were invited, you joined us, then you sent me that PM on September 23. Only one message, and you disappeared. I don't even know if you read my (longish) answer. Here's the contents of the PM, as it totally contradicts what you're saying (because you imply that you disagree with the concept of a, or our, SMF fork):
Quote
Thanks Nao for sharing the link to this forum.
I have read a lot of postings and I will tell you what I think;

1.. Only two Developer is too less for a project like this (same problems as SMF itself).
2.. Without testing the code (the project) I can't involve the PortaMx corp.
3.. I's a fork and the license rights are not cleared

So for the moment I can nothing do or more say as I do.
If you have a license for this project and you're ready to share the rights to the PortaMx corp., we can make a deal.

Fel
That was totally clueless.
So, how can you pretend that I "hade" you when it is *you* who actually were hostile to me?
I won't copy my long PM, but it basically said: (1) we have enough devs. We're working fulltime on it and are doing way more work than the SMF team on this. "PortaMx" is a single person, too, does that prevent you from working on it? (2) We weren't asking you to test our code, we were just asking you to share your ideas about our implementation concepts, and possible ways of making them faster, or choosing better coding practices. We may not *need* counseling, but we're open to external opinions. No one but us has access to the code and it will remain so at least until we go public. (3) I already discussed that -- our fork won't go public until SMF2 Gold is out, and then it'll be forkable. We just decided to begin our work ASAP because it then gave us time to rewrite large parts of the code.

I wasn't asking to "make a deal" with you, just to share ideas. I wasn't asking to share "rights" to our fork, because it's not a commercial business.
In all honestly, I was offended by your PM, but then I realized that your English is really bad and you probably didn't understand much of what I said.
So I just ignored you from that day. But I don't "hade" you. You haven't done anything to me. The only thing I really don't like about you, is how you insist on calling yourself a corporation. "Have a cigar." That's not our spirit. We're just Pete and Gilles. These idealistic coders who will do anything to get SMF out of the mess it put itself in.

That's all I had to say.

Hi Nao,
I think lots of the misunderstanding comes
from the  language barriers.

I know, that Feline is a very good programmer as you both are too,
so it would be good, if she could do her PortaMX also for your fork.

I think she has a partner in her corporation.
Maybe she develops also other software not related to PortaMX.

Would be good, if you would look into each other´s software,
when time permits and don´t "hade" each other... :gnehe:

Regards, Stefan.

Posted on 17 November 2010 17h46

P.S: I just saw, that you also run here RC4 now.
Do you also use SimpleSEF 1.1.1 or how do you do the
URL Rewrite things here at noisen ?

Or are you using PrettyURL or your own code ?
Many thanks.

If she could stop being so full of contempt to someone who she's never talked to (apart from the fork invite), and whose work she obviously never has had a look at...
I very rarely go to the AeMe topic at sm.org but I found this a minute ago:
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=200401.msg2851583#msg2851583
She's saying I have "bad programming practices". Obviously, she hasn't had a look at AeMe.
And of course, anything that's being said about my copyright insertion routine is wrong. Heck, anyone can look at it... It works just fine. It's the same as in Aeva Lite. It injects a HTML node into the footer div, and if it can't find it, it simply adds to the body (i.e. below the header.)
Quote
I think she has a partner in her corporation.
I have an invisible friend called Gertrude just as well, and I still don't call myself a corporation.
Quote

Seriously, you know what a corporation is...? :^^;:

If she really has a "partner", then that must be "him"...
http://portamx.com/topic_1797.0.html
Nicknamed "P.", for "PortaMx". Oh, and writes the exact same way as Feline does...

I'll say it again: she's alone on this. She just thinks it sounds more serious (and better for her business) to call herself a corporation.
Quote

She's really not helping. <sigh>
Quote
P.S: I just saw, that you also run here RC4 now.
I've been running it since day one... Actually since day-1, because Noisen has always been up to date with the latest development revision. Beta tester, remember?
Of course, now that they're no longer willing to give me back my badges (even after I restored the SMF copyright), it's no longer going to be the case. Not that it matters anyway... You know my feelings about the team. And their boss is a liar (http://bryandeakin.com/talk/index.php?topic=307.30).
Quote
Do you also use SimpleSEF 1.1.1 or how do you do the
URL Rewrite things here at noisen ?
Why would I use SimpleSEF...?
I helped write PrettyURLs, back in 2007. So I'm using PrettyURLs. A heavily customized version which I'm redoing for the fork, too. (Out of the box support for subdomains. Which is a PITA.)

Hello together and sorry for my inspection of aeva code discovering the problem with output buffer. I followed the threads here and on portamx and it's a shame, that devs are going to "hade" eachother.

Fel's main language seems to be german (as mine) and she's really not "nice" to bad or wrong questions but Nao - you also keep your answer's really short to your "customers".

I hope, dev's are not going to "hade" eachother and coding goes on next weeks so all people have fun with SMF, AEVA, PORTAmx and all other useful mods on this world.

I've had my own run-ins with Feline and have to say that if you happen to disagree with her that you have to work hard to be seen as right thereafter. I remember the time she flat out asked SlammedDime if he had a computing degree (like it was somehow relevant) in the SimpleSEF thread on sm.org for example (whereupon I joined in, since I certainly don't hold a computing degree of any kind)
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: hartiberlin on 18 November 2010 20h49
Yes, that was funny,
but Feline told SlammedDime all the errors he made and he was too lazy or slow to fix them...

Still SimpleSEF1.1.1
was the only Mod that still crashes the whole forum...
Damn..
and he still has not posted a new update... !
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: Arantor on 19 November 2010 0h04
Feline also seems to think that anyone who doesn't have a computing degree is unfit to debate with her - I don't, and when I brought it up she backed down. Funny really.

And no, the team will never integrate Aeva into 2.0 gold (yes, we read the Aeva thread), not only because the team feels it's bloat, but that Nao would never give it to them, no matter how much they asked. Just as I won't freely give away my rights to other code they want.

(And no, we would never join the team, not that they'd ever invite us. Even when Nao was a 'consulting dev', they'd already voted not to let him in but made him 'an apprentice' anyway just to use him for the help he'd give.)

Don't tell me it's a language barrier here. A German jerk is just as much of a jerk as a French jerk to me. And she's complaining that SMF treats her badly but she doesn't see a problem in saying ill of others in their backs, and then censoring their replies!

If I ever was hesitating to include a portal by default in our fork, it would have seriously helped me take a decision, ah ah.

As I said -- I have no hate of her.
But the fact that she's willingly deleting my posts, probably to prevent her "customers" the pain of having to go through a post that questions the very existence of her "corporation", well, THAT doesn't say much good about her.

Free "customers" are not customers -- they're users, that's all. I still devoted over two years to provide free support for them, while juggling with plenty of tasks.
Paying customers are happy with the support I'm providing, AFAIK. (Well, that WE're providing, since it's a team work, too. And thanks to my helpers, really.)

"hading" sessions generally do not eat time out of my work sessions.

I'm thinking of two things right now:
- I'll delete the Aeva Lite copyright from AeMe2. Totally unused. Gimme a sec... Done. Will be in the next update, whenever that happens. And AeMe2 users are from this moment on, allowed to delete the copyright from the auto-embedder process. That is, edit Aeva-Embed.php and empty the "aevacopy" function (just remove everything between the curly brackets "{}"). If you know about PHP code, you may also remove the function entirely, as well as the associated onload calls.[1]
- I should probably move this topic to the public AeMe board. I'm sure she'll appreciate that since she's censoring my post, I'm reposting it, along with ALL the bad things I *NOW* have to say about her behavior, in a public and popular place where she has to influence at all. That's her problem.
 1. NB: this will not fix any PortaMx bugs, but this copyright stuff made me think about it all. Obviously, once our fork is out, you can get a gallery, portal and other stuff that don't sport any copyright notices, because they'll be in the credits area anyway, rather than the footer. It will be frowned upon not to put any mod credits through a specific hook, which is called on the credits area and maybe called on mod pages as well. (Not the call to the hook, but a call to the function you hooked, obviously. Anyway! I'm getting lost myself.)

So it's even more to your credit that you actually didn't see a problem in me inviting her over to our private boards.
(Actually you should have told me you'd had problems with her... I've never seen a single dispute where I thought you were in the wrong. Can't say the same for me :P)

Lol.
Well, neither do I. I mean, I don't hold any degree whatsoever. I have my Bac (high school graduation exams), but I was too late to register for computer studies, so I chose someone else that bored me to death, stopped it, and in the meantime I developer an interest for the Japanese language so I went into Japanese studies instead (less crowded), after a year I found work as a translator so I dropped out during year 2 because I couldn't do both at the same time. Then I released KMJ and never had to actually work for anyone else, ever. So why bother with a degree... :o)

Really, I haven't been on the SMF boards much these last few weeks/months. If there are things that I should be made aware of, please share!

Unless they're willing to pay, ahah... But then they're better off buying our fork altogether!
How much would you settle on, Pete? Would 10 million euros be enough? 55/45 if they get AeMe in the process?
Yeah, I think that'd be a fair price for our work + 2 years of getting crushed.
It's barely more expensive than france.fr, my country's official website -- the small logo is apparently worth 28.5K (yes), and the website's design a whooping 100K. (I'm not kidding you. Apparently, "fugly" is the new black.)
Quote
(And no, we would never join the team, not that they'd ever invite us. Even when Nao was a 'consulting dev', they'd already voted not to let him in but made him 'an apprentice' anyway just to use him for the help he'd give.)
For what it's worth, they could hold a vote to give me the finger, or to say they're sorry they had to boot me off the website, I don't give a shit about their team thinks, votes, lies about, or whatever. They went hostile on us in a very official manner, so we're not going to bend over and smile.

Kindred's recently proven he'd rather lie over a lie ("I didn't lie, I just changed my mind and forgot about it"), just to save 'reputation', than make a move to more understanding between us. Great choice. They chose their position, they imposed it to us, so unless they have 10M under the hand, they've pretty much lost the fight because what they're fighting is something they haven't had for a LONG time in their team: two competent and motivated developers.
And you know how you give motivation to competent developers? By inviting them, first, and at least giving what they say some credit. Just because you think someone's idea is great, doesn't make you stupid for not having thought of it.

Eh.

Where do you see that?
I just didn't have time to look into the problem...
And when I finally devoted a few minutes to it, I saw Fel's post about my "bad programming practices". It shows two things at the time: she hasn't ever looked into any of my code, and she doesn't have a problem criticizing something she's never looked into.
At least, I don't comment on PortaMx... Because you know what? I never looked into it!
Quote

Student? I'm 35, you must be mistaken...
Yes, if you're posting here you're a 'customer', but still, I think I provide more than enough support for what is essentially a passtime by now.

Really, I spent two years providing free support to hundreds of people. Unpaid. Then I released Foxy and I sold 15 copies in a year or so. When I decided to turn Foxy into AeMe2, I suddenly started selling a lot of copies. So what I'm selling here, is not new features (since Foxy didn't sell), it's not even support (since I never used that as leverage for getting more users), it's a promise that I'll keep working on AeMe in the future. I guess.
I don't feel myself obliged to help users, whether paying or not. If someone is an ass to me, I'll be an ass to them. If someone is nice to me, and I just happen to be reading, I'll be devoting time to them. Non-paid customers, well -- same deal, only they PM me and I have the liberty to ignore them entirely.

Anyway... No hard feelings, but please don't start mentioning things like that in a way that feels like you're asking me for respect. You have my respect, but not because you bought my software a year ago. You have it simply because I believe respect is not something you earn.

It seems that this "bug" or whatever breaks up a lot of feelings between you and fel.... Where do you see that?
I often followed your messages either on SMF as well as on AEVA and you never posted such excessive threads as on behalf of fel from portaMX. So for me as an -  outstanding - user, i can feel a lot of things taking to your heart right now which maybe were unspoken until now. So finally, i like your software, i'm willing to pay if it's in relation to the school project i'm going to support; no more, no less.

So it's even more to your credit that you actually didn't see a problem in me inviting her over to our private boards.
For the most part, the issues I had with Fel were where I waded into a debate that wasn't really mine, but I made mine - cf. the SimpleSEF thread, or the private commentary that went on when she joined SimpleDesk as a beta tester and spent all her time debugging Project Tools on our behalf, finding dozens of issues and fixing them.

People that are willing to stand up for what they have to say get my respect - Fel did just that, for the most part, because she refused to be downtrodden too much by what others had to say. That said I won't deny there were times she was off the deep end, but it always struck me as being times that it was provocation that got to that point, e.g. Dime's attitude in replying to her.

To return to one of the two original points in this thread, is work being done on making AeMe work with RC4?  I was using 2.04 with RC3 very nicely but it won't install under RC4.

It does install on RC4... you'll just have to do some manual edits if another mod has change a part of the code that Aeva is looking for.

try to install on your site.. any test that fails requires manual editing
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: David8 on 19 November 2010 22h26
I am digging into the code.  The test that fails originates in install-2.0.xml lines 21-45 which is the second modification to Subs.php. 

The code begins:

   <operation>
      <search position="after"><![CDATA[
         'mlist' => array(]]></search>
      <add><![CDATA[
         // Aeva Media changes

and then has stuff through a closing

         // End Aeva Media changes]]></add>
   </operation>

One confusing item is that the error says       
2.    Add Before    ./Sources/Subs.php    Test failed
while the code seems to say search position "after"

I guess I want to know why the failure occurs.
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?

Problem solved!  The culprit was Ad Seller Pro.  I uninstalled it and AeMe installed correctly.  Ad Seller Pro then installed fine after.

thanks for the help.

Yes, it sometimes depends in which order you install the mods.

Well, with Fel I believe these were only misunderstandings,
cause she does not speak English so well and she is a German as me.

Also she said, that she can not post email correspondance publically,
because of legal problems in German law.

BTW, her PortaMX company has another women as her partner and a few
freelance works.
They are doing software consulting for bigger companies.

Fel is the CEO who is devoting now all her time to
develop the PortaMX portal software most of her time.

She will soon release PortaMX 1.0 with great new features.

Regards, Stefan.

Well, as long as your fork is not out yet and when  it is out and there are missing
functions, that the SMF2.0RC4 and a few other MODs combination can give me,
I would not change to your fork
as needed functions (Mods) are missing.

Maybe for these user you can still offer a paid version of AEVA that is
compatible with RC4 ?

Posted on 23 November 2010 15h16

Feline found an error:

"The bug has to do with the new integration hooks in RC4.
If Aeva make his ob_start, ob_end, the SMF outbuffer is called twice in ONE session, so a dynamic function then is created on the first outbuffer call and  exists on the second call. This crashed the entire system."

Feline has posted a fix on her PortaMX forum.

Nao, are you still going to fully support RC4 with your paid version ?

As RC4 came out after your AEVA 2.04 there are probably still more incompatibilities now ?

Did I ever ask anyone to do that?
Why would I ask anyone to do that?

I'm making this fork because it was killing me not to be able to improve SMF just because it's managed by a bunch of morons. So, I'm putting my heart into it. Whether people use it or not doesn't matter. "If it doesn't work, use SMF." I don't even need to keep it compatible. And it won't be.

Breaking away from SMF, and breaking any chance of SMF compatibility on our side in the code were the two (first) best things we ever did.

Okay, keep on programming guys !  :)

Post by: Nao/Gilles on 28 November 2010 8h10
I care that it's successful, myself -- but not for me, because it will mean more support to give. Only because the fork is built in such a manner that people WILL benefit from using it rather than SMF. It'll be simpler healthier to use. So it's desirable to have as many people as possible use it.

The software you're talking about is Mambo. It's still fairly known, I believe they've ported many of Joomla's features back to the fold.

Feline: "Any other copyright that linked to the SMF copright is destroy by aeva if it's true what I have read..."

She hasn't read ANYTHING, she's just being a cunt at that point.
Seriously, WHO ever said that of Aeva or Aeva Media?

Also, who is this Autopilot (http://portamx.com/topic_2118.msg12286.html#msg12286) who claims he's using AeMe 2.1 but isn't registered here?



Now to hartiberlin... You're an interesting case.
Playing in both teams, right?

Aren't you ashamed of promoting (http://portamx.com/topic_2124.msg12220.html#msg12220) SMF Gallery? Didn't you read my comments (http://aeva.noisen.com/6138/a-cautionary-tale-for-aeva-haters/) about vbgamer?

May I ask you why you've been using Aeva Media AT ALL at some point?

And this?
http://portamx.com/topic_2118.msg12282.html#msg12282
Of course the one release that 'fixes' your problem, and you don't have time to install it... What's your problem exactly?
More than that -- my fix actually removes my copyright code. You should be HAPPY that I'm not bothering my customers with more and more copyrights. You should be happy that there are developers who are concerned about "selling out", and would rather refund someone when it's really getting too complicated, than look like someone who'd do anything to keep your money. I don't care about money! Right? I'm happy that I'm still making some, and if I didn't get any, I'd probably stop work on AeMe entirely, but I'm not asking anyone for it.

It's also interesting that you should claim (http://portamx.com/topic_2124.msg12207.html#msg12207) you precisedly "offered money" for me to fix your problem, when you never did (http://my.noisen.com/hartiberlin/?area=showposts;sa=posts)! Or you claim (http://portamx.com/topic_2124.msg12220.html#msg12220) that AeMe doesn't support watermarking when I gave you two weeks ago the steps to do it! (http://aeva.noisen.com/6189/compatibility-problems-with-rc4-and-portamx/msg248401/#msg248401)

I never said no to helping you modify the template. I only said I wouldn't do it for money! There's a DIFFERENCE! And as far as I know, YOU stopped updating me (http://aeva.noisen.com/dev/6185/reworking-the-layout/msg248463/#msg248463) on what you were trying to do. What, did you expect me to just guess what you wanted, rework the layout and send it to you and ask if everything's okay? No. So I figured that you understood my hints and applied them and you were happy with them.

Would you rather send me money to praise me? Is that it? You pay vbgamer45 $80 for his crapshoot (SMF Gallery + video 'plugin'), of course he can afford to help you with a quick rewrite ahah... Although you pretty much know in advance that his work will suck (his "layouts" are probably the most obviously BAD part of his work, given that it immediately shows to the user and you don't have to dig into his dirty code.)
So -> $80 for him, $20 for me and you're complaining that I'm not doing your template rewrite when (1) it's not my job, you paid for AeMe, not for YOUR AeMe, (2) I actually offered to help FOR FREE.

Well, let me guess... You're a jerk, too!

I would have made this topic public much earlier, just to make things clear.

Seriously, what a jerk she can be! Accusing me of attempting to sell AeMe by planting bugs into the free version! Hello!! I DON'T CARE ABOUT MY SALES! How many times will I have to say it?!
And she's trying to give "corporate talk" eh! Well, when you're trying to be corporate, you start by avoiding to put the blame on others and say they're thieves! You start by not being a jerk, and making sure you're not going to bullshit everyone!

I've been sent this file... Supposedly it fixes hook problems within SMF2 RC4.
Aeva Media isn't using hooks, but portaMx is, so that's probably a fix for her problems. You know, the problems she blamed on *me*, calling me names etc...

Such a fine lady.

Anyway, I'm attaching the file below.
Posted on 30 November 2010 17h01

Okay... I've looked into this file and, hmm... It's doing something I'm already doing in our fork's hook code... i.e. properly save permanent hooks into the database, rather than all current active hooks. Funny though, they're using one extra database query for that. Waste of server resources... They could have done it our way -- keep at all times a list of both registered and unregistered hooks, and just manipulate the unregistered list when adding a non-permanent hook. Uh.

Anyway, I don't think this patch would fix anything in this case.
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: b4pjoe on 30 November 2010 18h22
Supposedly that patch and the first PortaMx v0.990 patch fixed an issue between SMF 2.0 RC4/SimpleSEF/PortaMx and I suppose any other software that uses hooks. It did not fix the PortaMx/AEVA problem until she also implemented the the 2nd PortaMx v0.990 patch.

The following is a quote from me on the SMF site.

This is located here: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=200401.msg2877373#msg2877373
I am here to report a bug with Aeva as it relates to 2.0 RC4. I tried the official site for the mod at http://aeva.noisen.com/ but I don't seem to be able to create a new topic on that immensely confusing site.

Here is a link to the thread that has all the problems associated with the 'Bug'. I assume it is a bug with Aeva but it could be a bug with SMF. I am not knowledgeable enough to determine that. After reading your topic on the relationship with the SMF team I will let you determine that.

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=412512.0
Posted on 10 December 2010 21h07


Testing that bug here on your site with Aeva installed.


(http://cache.[url=http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/63.251.20.161:27960/b_560_95_1.png]www.gametracker.com/server_info/63.251.20.161:27960/b_560_95_1.png[/url]) (http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/63.251.20.161:27960/)



Yep. It's here too!


Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: Arantor on 10 December 2010 21h14
The reason you can't create a new topic here is that there isn't free support here for Aeva, basically.


Oh, and that's not an Aeva bug you refer to, you cannot put a [url] tag inside an [img] one, plain and simple. The parser should be preventing it from happening. As you would find if you tried it on that forum, i.e. one without Aeva.

In theory it should never have parsed properly, but as of the changes in 2.0 RC3 and 1.1.11 (note: not even the latest versions), it should have been doubly disabled for security reasons to avoid malformed URL and XSS vulnerabilities.

You can't put tags inside tags, it's invalid HTML so it doesn't work. Better question is why it *ever* worked before.


Try it on simplemachines.org. They don't have Aeva. Funny though, it won't work there either. I wonder why... is it because it's an SMF issue with your messed up code perhaps?

Even the SMF team are telling you it's not an Aeva bug!


:edit: Since I'm feeling nice, here's a thought. I doubt the SMF folks would either know about this or bother to investigate.

Subs.php
Code: (find) [Select]
$no_autolink_tags = array(
'url',
'iurl',
'ftp',
'email',
);

Code: (replace) [Select]
$no_autolink_tags = array(
'url',
'iurl',
'ftp',
'email',
'img',
);

That is not true. In a few parts.

This code does work just fine on the SMF site.

Code: [Select]
[center][url=http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/63.251.20.161:27960/][img][url=http://cache.[url=http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/63.251.20.161:27960/b_560_95_1.png]www.gametracker.com/server_info/63.251.20.161:27960/b_560_95_1.png[/url]]www.gametracker.com/server_info/63.251.20.161:27960/b_560_95_1.png[/url][/img][/url][/center]

Shows up just fine!

And now that I removed Aeva 100% from my site it works just fine there as well.


As far as the team not recognizing this as being a SMF problem, I use that word loosely because they don't see this as a problem since this is not a widely used format for URL's, they did if you read the whole post'.

Code: [Select]
Didn't I just go over this with someone?

This is a problem with smf (sort of) not with aeva.
mostly, it's a problem with that website ont using a standard url address format.

The problem is that smf interprets www as the START of a web address,
so it is attempting to make the URL that is SEES into a link because that
cache.www screws it up.


I honestly don't call this an actual SMF "bug" and I would prefer telling the
stupid people who used that format or url to use a proper format.

And as far as the code being involved in this. It looks as though it is this code in Sources/Subs-Aeva.php:


Code: [Select]
// Links urls that haven't already been linked
function aeva_autolink_urls($input)
{
   global $context, $modSettings;

   // Should haven't got here if autolinking of urls is disabled
   if (empty($modSettings['autoLinkUrls']))
      return $input;


Because when changed to this it works:

Code: [Select]
// Links urls that haven't already been linked
function aeva_autolink_urls($input)
{
   global $context, $modSettings;

   // Should haven't got here if autolinking of urls is disabled
   if (empty($modSettings['autoLinkUrls']))
      return $input;
     
   if (preg_match("/gametracker/i", $input))
      return $input;


The code changes and ID of the location causing problems is courtesy of XerraX btw

And you didn't bother to check the code I used?

It's all kind of irrelevant anyway since let's be clear, Nao and I aren't supporting SMF, we're working on our own thing, and of that, we're going to be doing some serious rewriting of SMF, which means we're going to be rewriting the bbc system eventually anyway, as well as parts of Aeva.

(And yes, cache.www is a stupid URL system.)

But hey, you got a solution to your problem, hope you feel good now.

Well yes I guess I do. I am working on that right now. I don't have that Sources/Subs-Aeva.php on the version I installed. lol

I don't know where that code is located. I am trying to find it now.

I don't exactly understand the whole situation between you guys and SMF so I apologize if I came in here and was interpreted as trying to cause problems. My intention was just to bring up a problem that I was experiencing, as well as others, without trying to point fingers. I appreciate what all the modders and coders are able to do and maybe one day I can reach that level also before I die. I am getting a late start. lol

Well, I have no idea what version of Aeva you're using so no idea what to be looking for, since there are three principle versions, Aeva Lite, Aeva Media 1.x and Aeva Media 2.x, of which only the last one is really receiving support (paid, though) and the other two only get support here if Nao or I can be bothered, which isn't all that often, really.

The fact my fix didn't work wasn't useless, either, it just clarified where exactly the issue is (since there are times this can happen in raw SMF too!)
Title: Re: Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
Post by: Arebias on 11 December 2010 0h51

Yeah I got the version thing figured out now. I installed the 'lite' version on my other test site and was able to make the changes to the code that the other guy suggested and that works just fine for that particular site in question with that particular format of url.

Good luck on future work and thanks for all the work in the past.

Bingo. If you want a laugh, go read pages 7-10 or so of the SimpleSEF thread where he tries to get all high and mighty with SlammedDime.

Been there, done that. It's quite hilarious. "I providez fix to teh developerz, he won't takes it to improvez his product." Yeah... Pride, arrogance and prejudice, anyone?

Actually, thanks to Google for caching the page with all replies but mine. I can edit the DOM. Once I'm in Windows I can Fireshot it and paste the image.

I am experiencing the "Blank White Page" after installing Aeva-Lite-7.1.708.zip

Previous to installing Aeva Lite, I installed Aeva-Media-1.4c.zip on my 2.0 RC4 and the forum worked fine.

Heres the catch....I am NOT using PortaMX. I have never installed it at any time either. I am using EZportal.

There isn't support here for the free mods, please use the thread on simplemachines.org for support with Aeva Lite... you know, the one where Nao has been post-banned from.

Support for the free version of Aeva is over on SMF Modifications & Packages but worth trying...


Aeva Admin > Configuration > Settings > Preview size settings > check your thumbnail settings

Also, look at Security settings > check 'Leave thumbnail URLs in clear view' is set to Yes

Just out of curiosity, does the paid version have the blank screen thingy as well?  I'm not really sure its a bug so much as my host changed something since I'm sure I didn't use to have that.  I probly should have paid for it long ago but I got to the if it aint broke don't fix it mode I guess.

Thats the crazy thing, I use TP and have never tried PMX. I haven't used anything of Fel's since Felblog a long time ago.

Anyways, found someone say they fixed it with a memory limit change so I put this in php.ini and the problem went away:

memory_limit = 48M

hartiberlin, look for 'watermark' in the sm.org mod site, obviously... (?)
Then you should be able to find an AeMe plugin for that mod in their official topic or somethin'.

SlammedDime made SimpleSEF? Well, screw him...

Switch your forum to English by adding ?language=english to the URL...
Here it is. Working fine with Aeva 2.10

Running SMF 2.0 RC5 + PortaMX 1.0 RC4 + Aeva 2.10
 
Working fine with media like pictures (images) and YouTube embedding, but messes up my layout:
as soon as I embed an MP3 which Aeva handles with the JWPlayer.
 
Seems like the JWPlayer is not the right way to do the MP3's with. I don't see where I can change that. And I _do_ want to embed MP3 playing  IN the album. Please. :)

Yup.
As for the menu -- I'm not touching it again, just like the rest. You may wanna try Wedge when it comes out!

Ok. So I'll uninstall Aeva then. Too bad. Doesn't really feel "right" to pay for the commercial version because it would include support, to hear hours later that "you're not going to touch it".  But anyway. Have fun with the 'tenner'.

Its not a commercial version anymore. At 5$ it's a donation on exchange of which you get a few more features.

I love it when people think they're owned the two years of full-time work I spent on AeMe....

The $5 version is quite clear that it's 1-day access, and last I checked the $10 version says that it enables you access to the support board "without any guarantee of support"

Oh grow up. Who said that? Bottom line is that I could just as well used the free version, but since I don't mind to support and appreciate the work someone else put into it, I paid for the 2.10 version. My long-time experience with software producers, be it professional or 'semi'pro, are usually willing to help out if something is not working 100% as expected. Seems you're the odd one out. Good luck with that.

yeah, yeah,  yeah, everyone knows Nao is different because he works his arse off on software. Free software usually does not come with a guarantee of free support. You have to  rely on the kindliness of geeks which can be sporadic at best.

The difference is, people like Nao and myself are neither 'professional' nor 'semi-pro'. We are hobbyists, we do it for the love of doing it.

Support is actively a pain in our collective rear. We make things because making them makes us happy. Having to spend time trying to pander to the expectations of others does not make us happy.

The best way I can sum it up is as:
Quote from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091369/quotes?qt=qt0459380
Sarah: Give me the child.
Jareth: Sarah, beware. I have been generous up 'til now. I can be cruel.
Sarah: Generous? What have you done that's generous?
Jareth: *Everything*! Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for *you*! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations of me. Isn't that generous?
I got fed up trying to live up to the expectations of others, which is why I slowly stopped writing mods for SMF and when I learned the hard way of never writing anything for anyone else, to only write things I actually *want* to write. After all it's my free time I'm using to write things, surely I have a say in what I spend that time on?
