I'm running Ubuntu Linux and Geeklog 1.8.0 and I am a novice when it comes to Linux. The installation went without comment except for when I attempted to go beyond the initial screen in config manager. For example I could not drill down to "users and submissions", when I clicked on it, it just stayed at the same screen. It did likewise for all links on the configuration.php page. Can it be a permissions?
All other parts of the site is operating correctly, I can create users, stories and save without issue or comment. Forgot to mention that I have followed the security recommendations and have the "public_html" in the www directory while the rest of files are in another directory.
:shock:

Do you have JavaScript enabled?

Also, if this is an upgrade from an earlier version, your theme may need some tweaks to get this to work. Try with the Professional theme that ships with Geeklog.

Java script is enabled, Geeklog's Professional theme is unaltered. In case it is the browser, I tried it with a Safari browswer which wouldn't go beyond the login page despite entering the correct userid/password. The same browser (Safari) was used to login to Webin on the same server which requires same userid as geeklog. ?
Strange...could it be a config on apache? No firewall at this time.

Pretty much narrowed it down to the Apache2 server (maybe). I've pretty much have tried everything from multiple versions of Geeklog, etc. I'm a novice at Apache2 but there has got to be a config that deals with java? I'm using Webmin so I've got a gui interface into Apache2 but if anyone knows off the top of their heads a possible setting to enable java please let me know.....Thanks!

Java and Javascript are not the same thing. Geeklog doesn't use any Java, only Javascript, and Apache doesn't interact with Javascript at all.

If it's a JS issue you might be able to see something in your browser's error console.

Thats not true, in the Apache 2.2 default server config, under "Aliases and Redirects" there is a reference to "/usr/share/javascript/" so it must interact in some way?

That's unrelated. There's also a thing called server-side JavaScript, but Geeklog doesn't use all that.

Can you check if you're seeing any JavaScript errors on your side? In Firefox, open the Error Console under Tools > Web Developer, then reload the page (other browsers should have similar options).

Also, did you try another browser?

Things I can think of:
- we have a bug in our JavaScript code that your browser doesn't like
- the JavaScript simply isn't there (in public_html/javascript) or defective - try re-uploading the files
- something is blocking the JavaScript - could be the webserver, a proxy, or a firewall

Here's what I have in the error log of the browser:

Line: 1

Error: jQuery is not defined

Okay, I get the last 2 myself here on geeklog.net - something we should look into, but not the cause of your problems.

open_subgroup is a JavaScript function, defined in public_html/javascript/admin.configuration.js - so something's wrong there.

Did you try uploading the contents of public_html/javascript again, as suggested above?

Dirk, I tried uploading fresh contents of public_html/javascript as suggested with same results.
This morning.. I reinstalled Ubuntu Linux 11.4 and all related web apps with same result:

Error from browser reports:

Can I set the parameters from the configuration manually? Which file(s) do I have to access? I've tried altering the values in the database conf file but doesn't seem to have had the desired affect?


Thanks

Can you access the Geeklog demo site configuration with the same browser you are using to access the website you are having problems with fine?

About the last 2 errors Dirk. I looked into it and it looks like that they are there to support older/other browsers. I do not get the errors in IE.

I accessed the configuration page and was able to drill down into categories that I have not be able to access in my Ubuntu. I just noticed on my site where "Configuration (6)" is listed in the Admin menu. In the demo site the Configuration link has (8) number as opposed to my (6)? Don't know if that is anything significant?

The number beside the Configuration just refers to the number of sections (plugins basically) found in the configuration interface.

I wouldn't mind seeing the source of your page when you go to the Geeklog Configuration. Could you send it to me via email?

All,
Thanks for your assistance on this issue but I've spent a lot of time spinning my wheels trying to figure this thing out. The easier solution for me at this point is to abandon Ubuntu and go back to Windows. Thanks for your efforts!

Rgds,


Lee

Maybe this explains the problem you were having?
