I upgraded a 1.3.11 site which has a couple of long static pages. They became truncated and messed up the the layout (pushing the right block elsewhere because the table tag wasn't closed).

The staticpage MySQL table seems to be the same, but why does 1.4.0 stop accepting long pages?

I changed the MySQL setting for sp_content to "MediumText" and solved the problem. However, I think this should not happen, so there must be a bug somewhere.

I am testing 1.4.0 and really love it! I actually can't wait the release 1.4.0!
FCKEditor is also a good thing.

Anyway, I am not sure if it is bug or not.
When sending e-mails to my group, someimes, the system doesn't send the mail to root user.
Looking at ug_main_grp_id, some root user doesn't register to the group and some are registered.
Both user are shown in the group member list.

Do you understand what I mean?
(Sorry, about my poor English)

About documentation.
I think notification allows 'link' too in the submission settings.

Not any more. Since the Links are a plugin now, this is now an option in the Links plugin's config.php file.

On a fresh install of 1.4.0rc1, if I create a new user and make them a member of the Stories Admin group, the user can create a story, but does not have the ability to edit stories. It seems that a user must be a root user to edit a story.

Read the FAQ Setting up a Story Admin

You can also set the default permissions for new stories now (in config.php).

Since this has become such a frequent confusion, why don't we have the Topic Admin edit box checked as default for the new topics. Since most of the time a person with a Story Admin permission is also a Topic Admin.

This will reduce the confusion, at least to some extend. That's how I do it.

A better level correction would be "if the author is a Story Admin, then the author is allow to edit his own story."

As of recent nightly CVS, which is getting ready for rc2, the 'body' tag of the css is replaced by the FCKeditor's css, if the advanced editor is chosen.

So you can't change the body's background color or anything else related to the body, unless you change it through FCKeditor's css.

I wonder how useful, or important, that FCKeditor's css is. I haven't yet carefully look at the difference. For the time being I just comment out the css redirection in the "advanced_editor_header.thml" so that I can use the style.css.

This can be a bug because it will hinder theme development.

I found that by commeting out the css file pointer for FCKeditor in advanced_editor_header.thml does not affect FCKeditor. FCKeditor still uses the css from the fck_editorarea.css. So it seems that that line is not necessary.

More bug:

If you login from domain/admin page, you get the error "Connot modify header information" from auth.inc.php file, and there is no "white space" at the end of that file.

"echo $display" is the line that produced the error.

If you log in normally from the User Functions box, this does not happen.

You can reproduce the error on this site. Just goto Geeklog.net/admin and try to log in.

in IE

Created a new group called Faculty.
The new group isn't shown in the group list or in the possible selections for permissions in the story editor.
but it's in the DB. So it's been created...

Looking at it further it looks to be a cookie refresh deal... Pulled up in Firefox without a problem, cleared out the cookies in IE and it was all good...

So going into more specifics... I've enabled the wysiwig, the people who are wanting this will want it as easy to use as possible. That's the only change made to the config file so far except for the mandatory set up stuff. It's refreshing when the wysiwig isn't turned on, but once it's enabled and a new group is added the new group won't show up until such point as the cookies are refreshed.

Geeklog 1.4.0rc2 is out, so I'm closing this thread.

bye, Dirk
