confused
Hello,

I'm using geeklog 1.3.11, and forum 2.3.2. During install I had a problem with the plug-in install, it was not reading that $action == 'install', so every time it executed, nothing happened. To fix this I had to temporarly hard-code $action = 'install'; into the php install script. That was fine and dandy.

However, now I'm having a nother problem. I cannot create Categories. I click on "Add Forum Category", and nothing happens. I imagine this is related to the install problem I had, but I don't know how to go abouts fixing it. I'm a fairly adept programmer, but I've never used php before, so I'm limited in what I can experiment with on my own. Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Dan.

That's set to Off currently. I've heard in the past about that being a security issue to have On. What are the implications of turning it on? It's a shared hosing environment, so turning that on will affect more then just myself, so I have to be careful. I have root on the box, my gf is the machine owner Wink but I'm always weary of changing things that could adversly affect her payings customers, while I just mooch Neutral

Why not have a look at the FAQ.

If you don´t want to put it on global just use the .htaccess option and you should be safe with your girlfriend Mr. Green

I had a similar problem. "Add Forum category" URL was without "site_url".
Instead of "http://www.mygeeklog.org/admin/plugins/forum/boards.php?mode=add&type=category"
I had only:
"http://admin/plugins/forum/boards.php?mode=add&type=category"

Similar problems I had on the page with the form for the new topic.

I have found out that the variable in the main config.php "$_CONF['site_url']"
CANNOT have slash at the end.
Not "http://www.mygeeklog.org/" but only "http://www.mygeeklog.org"

Now it works...

I have set "globals = on" via php.ini and via .htaccess too.
