Server upgraded to latest version

Post by Azatotht »

Hey all, was tired of paying a legacy fee on the hosting in order to support php 7 (PHP Extended Support as they call it) :FP:

So I've just upgraded the website to the latest version and we are now running on php 8.1 as well, about time :lol:

With these updates comes the bugs so if you see something that is not working anymore please let me know in this thread.

I have NOT tested intensively so there might be some new quirks and features !

I can't seem to find any minty TZ's for sale at $1500.

Could you look into fixing that please ?

;-)

Just kidding, thanks for all the work you do to maintain this site.

(...time for another donation soon... )

Merci,

The Donor List seems to be out of whack.
app.php/donorlist

Image is massive. Not sure if this is due to the upgrade.

Not to my knowledge, the red icon still works for me ?

That being said, the theme is out of date, I have the updated version that goes with this phpBB version BUT haven't had the time to install it yet because I have custom code to port into it first.

Should be able to do it soon so we'll see if this fixes it for you.

Yeah the extension is not up to date and may have some conflicts with the new forum software.

I am receiving the donations thou, I can confirm, thank you ;)

I will check into it and see if I can get it updated properly.

Works on Brave but haven't tested on Edge.

Updating the theme will probably fix it, will try to do it soon.

OK, updated the theme and added everything that was customized before (I think).

Let me know if it fixes it for you cap.

Clear your cache otherwise and see if it's better.

Good to hear. Just so you know...

1) Normally I would get a message in my Inbox.
2) The recent donor amount did not update.
3) The grand total did not update.
4) The expiry did not update.

No rush, just reporting bugs.

Yeah there was a MySQL related error so the loop did not close properly.

I’m in contact with the creator, will hopefully be able to fix it in the next few days.

Alright, I think I've fixed the donation extension.

Did a manual donation entry on your behalf in order to test it so your total is 25$ higher :mrgreen:

I see the grand total right now, recent donor is there and the expiry date seems fine.

Not sure if you did get a PM or email but maybe not since I did it myself manually using an option in the backend.

We'll know for sure next time someone send one :roll: 8-)

Sweet. Nice fix. No PM or email but like you said it came from you so you would have gotten the notifications I guess not me.

[EDIT] I just tried to visit the Donors page and it still is messed up for me. Image is still loading HUGE. I tried F5/Refresh. Ended up with this error:

[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/ext/dmzx/donation/controller/donorslist.php on line 167: Trying to access array offset on value of type bool

OK nevermind, I tried with a standard member account and you are right about the page being out of whack.

With my account it's working fine, maybe because I am an admin.

I'll debug this.

Well, found the issue, you should see the page just fine now.

Question: before the update, were you seing the donation expiry time for everyone or not ?

Because the bug was in a PHP file, didn't make sense how it was coded, good thing I am a programmer myself lol

There is a condition that decides if the expiry times are shown or not and it was set to either admins or "current user" which was the part that was not working so I removed it.

I have 2 choices now, to leave it as-is and normal users wont see expiry times or to always show them. I don' really care, which do you prefer ?

I mean this:
