Compatibility problems with RC4 and PortaMX ?
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 à 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 à 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 ?

If you have a problem with SimpleSEF ask its author in the appropriate place.

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)

@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,

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.

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.

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.

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...
