Radu, what VERSION was your old fantastico geeklog installation and what version is the current one? You can find the version at the end of config.php. e.g. 'VERSION', '1.4.0sr2'

The theme professional is not bad but sober. It is a bit like an all terrain car. The only thing that is bad is not to change it in design but to leave it as is on ones own homepage. So give it some new colours and pics and it looks much more stylish.

That`s what I asumed. You can`t just take a new Geeklog and the old database. Best would be to take the old installation and old database and then manually update to either GL 1.3.11sr5 or 1.4.0sr2

Look here: http://www.geeklog.net/article.php/geeklog-1.4.0sr2

Updating to GL 1.3.11sr5 is easy as you only have to copy over some files.

Maybe the combo update is right for you: http://www.geeklog.net/filemgmt/singlefile.php?lid=684

There's a lot of confusion and unanswered questions in this thread ...

For the moment, I'm assuming that you did properly update your database when you updated your site (or your site wouldn't work anyway).

So, what you're saying is that stories by anonymous users do not end up in the submission queue but show up on the site right away. I'm assuming that you have enabled the story submission queue, i.e. that you have $_CONF['storysubmission'] = 1;

Now, the only way that anonymous posts would not go into the submission queue is when somehow anonymous users got the "story.submit" permission. You can't actually assign that permission to anonymous users from within Geeklog, but let's assume for the moment that something went wrong somewhere.

When you go to the Admin's list of Groups, there is a group called "All Users". Click on the edit icon for that group. What do you see listed for the "Rights" for this group (where it says "Below is a read-only list of the rights this group has access to.")? It shouldn't list anything, actually (or maybe some filemgmt permissions, if you have the File Managment plugin installed).

bye, Dirk

I do not know what's going on. Is there a possibility for you to check my files on the server if I give you the user name and password?

Something funny :

// Submission Settings

// enable (set to 1) or disable (set to 0) submission queues:
$_CONF['storysubmission'] = 2;
$_CONF['eventsubmission'] = 1;
$_CONF['usersubmission'] = 0; // 1 = new users must be approved

// When set to 1, this will display an additional block on the submissions page
// that lists all stories that have the 'draft' flag set.
$_CONF['listdraftstories'] = 1;



I change $_CONF['storysubmission'] = 2; to "2" and nothing happend
something is wrong I tried all the numbers so....... i do not know

And we'll never know if you continue to ignore questions (like the one I asked you above) and instead play around with settings that we've already dismissed.

$_CONF['storysubmission'] can have exactly two values: 0 or 1. Anything else is undefined.

Sorry but I try everything what you told me and does not work. I have a question. All the instalation files have to be under Public_html directory or some have to on the same level with public_html directory. if i download a copy from your site and unzip it nott all directories are under public_html. if i install a copy from my server using Fantastico than all the program files are under public_html directory. so what is the correct way? I need so much help i do not want to loose all my work for 2 years praying it will work

If you are upgrading your geeklog-install to a new wersion as you say..
(Replacing php-files with new ones) You MUST perform an UPGRADE to apply changes to your database for this to work with the new version.
This is good explained in the document install.html and you can find that in the folder /public_html/docs in your new installation.
Good luck Smile

You can do both, please read here:
http://www.geeklog.net/faqman/index.php?op=view&t=56

Fantastico only can install under public_html which is not a problem. The problem is that fantastico can`t UPGRADE.


Please confirm the following:

You now installed a new Geeklog 1.4.0sr2 with fantastico - correct?

You have a security copy of your old MySQL - correct?


My suggestion:
- delete the new MySQL of Geeklog 1.4.0sr2
- upload the old MySQL do NOT log in!
- copy over the subdirectory public_html/admin/install/
- run install / upgrade by going to your domain/admin/install/install.php
- follow instructions for upgrade

I am not 100% sure it will work as I never tested it myself. Would be nice if you gave a feedback and helped writing a small FAQ for fantastico users.

I don`t know why you think it is in the first table but this is mine:

Text Formatted Code
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `gl_access`;
CREATE TABLE `gl_access` (
  `acc_ft_id` mediumint(8) NOT NULL default '0',
  `acc_grp_id` mediumint(8) NOT NULL default '0',
  PRIMARY KEY  (`acc_ft_id`,`acc_grp_id`)
) TYPE=MyISAM;

--
-- first table in the data base access `gl_access`
--

INSERT INTO `gl_access` (`acc_ft_id`, `acc_grp_id`) VALUES (1, 3);
INSERT INTO `gl_access` (`acc_ft_id`, `acc_grp_id`) VALUES (2, 3);
INSERT INTO `gl_access` (`acc_ft_id`, `acc_grp_id`) VALUES (3, 5);
INSERT INTO `gl_access` (`acc_ft_id`, `acc_grp_id`) VALUES (4, 5);
INSERT INTO `gl_access` (`acc_ft_id`, `acc_grp_id`) VALUES (5, 9);
