This version sports a nice backup/preview/restore function for your table data as well as a data integrity checker to help with rogue entries and orphans.

Many bug fixes and other good stuff. This will be the last one for a while so enjoy.

just thought I'd put this back in the news. Wink
You can also find this plugin in the plugins download section on this site.

I appreciate it! I'm just trying to migrate my site to 1.3.11 right now, and that's taking a bit more time than I had anticipated. Lots of customizations don't come over easy.

I'll get it and test it as soon as reasonably possible.

Hi Gang,

I'm running R/H 9, Apache 2, Geeklog 1.3.11, and yesturday installed 'dailyquote' when I login and click on either 'LISTINGS' or 'BATCH ADD QUOTES' the page displayed is WAY WIDE (left/right)
All other 'dailyquote' pages seem to display fine. It's just those two links mentioned above when logged in.

Have I missed something, I've been searching through the Forums, but haven't found anything.

Anyone else had this problem? Or is my installation to new yet.
I'm pretty sure I've followed the installation directions.


Thanks in advance for any help.
Regards,
Seanc

what browser are you using? Do you have a link I could look at? I could then see the page source and find exactly where the problem occurs, at least on the listings page.

as far as the batch add form goes, you may need to adjust the "overflow: auto;" to perhaps, "overflow: scroll;" (search for overflow in batchaddform.thtml)--this is a browser compatablility issue.
Let me know which way works for your browser.

as far as the listings page (index.php) goes, there shouldn't be anything loading differently depending upon whether you are logged in or not except the link row, which will not load because you are running 1.3.11 (links should be in a left block).

I suggest that this issue (re: listings) is due to a theme issue, perhaps the outer table/div doesn't like my table=100%. ...Or you may have a nasty quote without breaks or something silly like that. But I'll keep looking at it.

Hi machinari,

Gee thanks for the quick response, I'm using I.E. 6.0 on WinXP
The problem only occurs when Logged in Looks fine as anonymous user. And only one those two pages. I've fiddled with your suggestions below, but no change. I suspect you are correct re: your suggestion that it's a theme issue, I'm using the default 'professional' theme that's packed with 'GL' and a copy of the 'professional' theme that I've modified, but it appears the same using either the original theme or my hacked theme.

Thanks for your time,
Regards,
Seanc

IE doesn't like the float attribute.. I'm sure i tested this earlier, anyway

change singlequote.thtml to this:
PHP Formatted Code
                                <tr>
                                        <td>
                                                {title}
                                                <p>"{quote}"</p>
                                                <p align="right"><em>{quoted}{source}</em>{sourcedate}</p>
                                                <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
                                                        <tr>
                                                                <td style="text-align: left; font-size: 8pt; margin-left: 45%;">{editlink}</td>
                                                                <td style="text-align: right; font-size: 8pt;">
                                                                        {subm_by}: {contr} /
                                                                        {datecontr}  
                                                                        {cat}: {dispcat}
                                                                </td>
                                                        </tr>
                                                </table>
                                                <hr width="45%">
                                        </td>
                                </tr>

 

That takes care fo the index and search pages. i'm thinking batch add is similar, but haven't looked yet.. on my way.

I am way shocked that nobody has complained about this before Shocked

Yes that fixed it right up. A REALLY BIG THANKYOU.

Please don't take my post as a complaint. I was only asking for assistance and to see if anyone else had similar trouble and possibly a solution.

Could it be a combination of the new installation as everything here was installed since the begining of 2005 with the newest version of 'GL' 1.3.11 and plugins used here.

Anyway I wanted to reply and confirm that your fix did the job, and I will look here for the solution to the 'batch add'


Thanks again
Regards,
Seanc

here is the batch add fix--tho it is an ugly one.... again, it is an IE problem, but one that I thought I had worked out before.

in batchaddform.thtml, line 25, add a fixed width to the pre tag like this
PHP Formatted Code
                                        <pre style="width: 600px; border: solid 1px; background-color: #FFFFFF; color: #000000; padding: 5px; overflow-x: auto;">


 


my apologies, and thanks for letting me know about this.

oh, and those of you not using IE, don't use "overflow-x: auto;", just use "overflow: auto;"

Re: batchaddform.thtml
Yep worked like a charm.

Thankyou for the VERY QUICK RESPONSE.
Yes I'm suprise no one else mentioned this. Can I be the only one with this problem, or one of the only one's running the newer versions that's experienced this problem.


Best Regards,
Seanc

OK, I've finally got 1.3.11 installed and DQ 1.0.5. I'll let you know if I can find any problems using it the way I use it.

I like the admin block, though I had to modify my theme to make use of it since I don't use a variant of the Professional theme. It's useful, though, and much better than the menu list that appeared previous versions on the admin pages.

Also the catman page is coming along nicely. Thanayouor your efforts in that regard.

Sorry, Dude, I use Opera. I couldn't give a darn if it doesn't work with IE. Of course, my users would probably disagree with me...

Occasionally, I'll use IE for testing, but that's about it. I'll download it just to be on the safe side.

By the way, Listsings and Batch Add always looked fine in Opera.

Ok well we are now running GL 1.3.11 and DQ 1.0.5 final with no problems to report.

Both batchaddform.thtml and singlequote.thtml are looking fine now in IE for us...although we had to adjust the width of the example text file box...a preset width of 600px didn't agree with our theme!

Isn't that just an UGLY fix? I wish I didn't have to do that. Mad
If any of you can suggest a better way, I would certainly like to hear it.
