Hi Chris, I noticed some fixes for some language entry errors in the tracker and ran into a couple of additional critical errors relating to missing language entries.
1. A language entry is missing: TAG_CLOUD (version: 9.0.8, PHP version: 5.3.26, URL: /index.php?page=groups&type=misc). It happened on any page that had the side_tag_cloud block. If I cleared the caches I could refresh the web page without getting an error, but as soon as I went to another page or refreshed the same page with the side_tag_cloud block it would bail out again. I couldn't reproduce this one after deleting the block tag and re-adding it through the block tag assistant. I even tried renaming the old panel_right.txt.xxxxxxxxx back to panel_right.txt and clearing the caches to try to reproduce it, but I couldn't.
2. A language entry is missing: COMCODE_TAG_flip (version: 9.0.8, PHP version: 5.3.26, URL: /data/comcode_helper.php?type=step2&tag=flip&field_name=post&utheme=default) when trying to add custom comcode from the comcode tag assistant in the comcode page editor.
1 was probably an old bug, stuck in your cache. When blocks cache they store what language files were used (because rendering of the cached tempcode needs it), but it may be we didn't include the right language file in a previous version.
If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
