Hello all!
I liked gl so well that I have decidied to try and implement it for my community chorus. I hav it installed in my home dir/public_html with a symlink to the same dir elsehwere in my home.
/home/me/path/to/geeklog
/home/me/public_html/ --> /home/me/path/to/geeklog/public_html

Almost everything works like a charm. I can add links, enable blocks, change Admin password.... HOWEVER

I can't edit or create any topics. What might be causing that?

Thanks for your assistance.

This may be a permissions issue. Did you chmod 775 as directed? If so, then try 777.

Are you getting a "Please fill in the Topic ID and Topic Name fields" message even though you did fill them in? If so, that's a bug that I introduced in 1.3.9rc2 ...

In lib-common.php, find where it says
Text Formatted Code
if( isset( $HTTP_GET_VARS['topic'] ))                                          
{
    $topic = COM_applyFilter( $HTTP_GET_VARS['topic'] );                      
}
else          
{
    $topic = '';                                                              
}
 
(search for "topic") and replace this with
Text Formatted Code
if( isset( $HTTP_GET_VARS['topic'] ))                                          
{
    $topic = COM_applyFilter( $HTTP_GET_VARS['topic'] );                      
}
else if( isset( $HTTP_POST_VARS['topic'] ))
{
    $topic = COM_applyFilter( $HTTP_POST_VARS['topic'] );
}
else
{
    $topic = '';                                                              
}
 

bye, Dirk

Whew! Thanks for the quick update, Dirk.

I just installed GeekLog this morning, and thought I was nutz when I couldn't add a topic. Smile BTW - have you considered updating the front page article regarding this? Seems others might benefit from it...
