I have just released version 2.3.2 of the Forum Plugin on my site. This is a Release Candidate and want to get some testing results and feedback before making a general release available. You can view the details of the release on my site here. It includes a number of fixes and a few new features.

A security issue was reported on Sept 13th by member magomarcelo in this post
here

In version 2.3.1: I introduced a new Admin Navbar and inadvertently removed the include of the code to check if the user had admin forum access. There are other logic checks for perms but this was clearly a big issue. I posted a fix within 15 minutes of seeing this report.

If you are running version 2.3.1: Add the following code to your gf_functions.php located in the admin/plugins/forum folder - just after the line that does the include of lib-common.php.
PHP Formatted Code

if (!SEC_hasRights('forum.edit')) {
  echo COM_siteHeader();
  echo COM_startBlock($LANG_GF00['access_denied']);
  echo $LANG_GF00['admin_only'];
  echo COM_endBlock();
  echo adminfooter();
  echo COM_siteFooter(true);
  exit();
}

It's been a week and I've had over 75 downloads from my site for this new release but no real feedback and better yet no reported issues.

I don't want to assume there are no problems but has anyone really done much testing. I want to release a final version to address the noted issue asap.

Also this is the time to update any language files and send them to me to be included. I've not had anyone contact me as of yet.

Hi Blaine,

I've installed the latest version of the Forum plugin and am experiencing some Story.admin problems within Geeklog.
Users that are a member of the story.admin group and topic.group in Geeklog now can't edit story's, it keeps displaying stories as read-only. I've also upgraded to Geeklog version 1.3.9sr2 so I don't really know if its caused by the plugin or the upgrade. I've upgraded first and then installed your plugin.
)
Any idea?

The forum would have no effect on the story and topic permissions. You may want to check that the members have edit permissions for the topic as well as the story.

Hello,

Yesterday I installed geeklog and today your forum.

I added a category but after clicking forum index:

I see active forum, quiet forum and select forum.

Active forum and quiet forum are not clickable (no change of cursor) and my added category appears in the box, but is not clickable also.

What have I done wrong?
(Everything else seems to work fine, Forum menu, settings..)

Grtz.

You may want to check the date on Blaine's post - this is a very old discussion thread. It only came back up since somebody commented on it (when they should really have started a new discussion thread).

Your best bet is still the current effort to revamp the forum plugin. The second beta has just been announced: Forum Plugin 2.8.0 - BETA 2.

bye, Dirk

I wonder how about forum direction change? Last version not able to change direction RTL (right to left), How about this one? I downloaded already, but not sure about the direction change so didn't install yet.
