Using the Bug Tracker

Post by Nuttzy99 » Wed Aug 27, 2003 4:05 am

Only I can create items that will be listed here. I will report on the status of the bugs as each case progressed. Others can feel free to chime in if they have something to add to a topic.

Re: Using the Bug Tracker

I do not really understand what do you mean by "chime in". So, I'm assuming you meant anyone can't create a topic here, but reply to an existing one.

Sorry, if I'm doing wrong, but I wanted to post a problem that makes some MODs re-apear in the list of unprocessed MODs for the ACP->MODs Center->Install MODs option.

This happens because the mod_title field is defined as VARCHAR(50) in the DB.

One of MODs the that falls into this problem is the Category Hierarchy MOD. Its name contains 51 and 58 characters for part 1 and 2, respectively.

Code: Select all

Categories hierarchy - part 1 (common to all setup)
123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901
         1         2         3         4         5

Categories hierarchy - part 2 (std admin forum management)
1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678
         1         2         3         4         5
Why don't define this field as VARCHAR(255)?

For upgardes, the installation script could perform an ALTER sql statement or, if that is not supported for some RDBMs, then do it via create a temp table, insert from old, drop old, rename new table. ...or something.

Marcus, that bug should be fixed in 0.0.13, however the MOD would have to have been installed in 0.0.13 for it to take effect.

Indeed, I was talking about 0.0.13.

confirmed bug persist in 0.0.1.3
fix is simple:
before instaling easymod:

Code: Select all

OPEN 

easymod_install.php

FIND

				mod_title varchar(50) NULL DEFAULT '',

REPLACE WITH

				mod_title varchar(255) NULL DEFAULT '',

FIND

				mod_title varchar(50) NULL DEFAULT '',

REPLACE WITH

				mod_title varchar(255) NULL DEFAULT '',

Hi, selven. Nice to see you here. :)

I was waiting for Nuttzy's response on this. However, he seems to be somehow busy...

Meanwhile, a couple of changes are also necessary in admin_easymod.php

Code: Select all

#
#---[ OPEN ]----------
#
admin/admin_easymod.php
#
#---[ FIND ]----------
#
		WHERE mod_title = '" . substr( $mod_title, 0, 100) . "' 
#
#---[ REPLACE WITH ]----------
#
		WHERE mod_title = '" . substr( $mod_title, 0, 255) . "' 
#
#---[ FIND ]----------
#
	$mod_title = str_replace("'", "''", substr( $mod_title, 0, 50)) ;
#
#---[ REPLACE WITH ]----------
#
	$mod_title = str_replace("'", "''", substr( $mod_title, 0, 255)) ;
#
#---[ SAVE ]----------
