Our own website is now running ocPortal 4 :).

I've tested that it generally works on all pages, but because this is a beta version there will be some bugs lurking around.

If you find any such bugs I'd really appreciate it if you could mention them somewhere, such as in this topic.

I saw that and you have friends and group colors now.
Good job.
BTW the private topics brings up a blank page.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Couple of observations:

  • Support tickets have now been converted to 'system identifiers', dropping the plain language item description. Difficult to track back on one's previous problems.

  • Site 'Version Information' on Admin page (my site) is giving the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function text_lookup_comcode() in /home/ocp/public_html/uploads/website_specific/ocportal.com/scripts/version.php on line 50

Is this connected to your site update?

  • There is a 'Preview' button under this Quick reply box, but it doesn't appear to want to do anything when clicked!


edit: Additional error when clicking 'Preview' - (possibly significant to IE7 only):
Line: 704
Char: 94
Error: Unterminated string constant
Code: 0

Preview works on firefox 3.0.1.
The other issue you mentioned about the tickets I have that as well.

Another 'Quick reply' to check IE7, or to ensure it isn't MY machine and settings that are causing the problem …

And this is a 'Quick reply' using FF3 …


Yes, the feature works as it was intended, so it looks like, much as the staff DISLIKE IE7, that a bit of tweaking is necessary for that browser.

I reiterate - 98% of my visitors use some flavour of IE, and since we are here to 'serve', I guess the unpalatable task of making this work in IE is unavoidable!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

And another question related to this issue.

Why does clicking the 'Preview' button twice (using FF3) take me to a NEW tab?

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

I thought it was intended to do that so you could have the preview in a new tab.
I do agree must of my visitors use IE as well.
But I do have a few that use The mac's browser, just for got what it was called at the moment.

Hi guys and girls,

Fixing the IE7 problems is a priority. I didn't notice the Javascript errors previously as they only happen for non-staff, but it's obviously a very major issue. I've made some headway fixing them (and preview), and it should be fixed on this site today. Some of the other bugs mentioned in this topic are now fixed.
Thanks for reporting it all.

Now here's an admission.

I actually use FF a lot, and especially when things don't work as they are expected to in IE. Firebug gives me an insight and I can take it from there.

I use IE to build and run things because of what I said in an earlier post - the majority of my users use it 'out of the box' - and if I get the stuff to work in IE then I am certain that the majority of my visitors won't know (and patently don't care!) that things aren't being rendered as they should.

Thanks for raising the bar on the IE issue Chris. I'll check to see if the errors still occur …

Looks like some additional lines thrown up there. I promise I won't post any more if it is becoming irritating!


edit: All those errors are supposed to be inside the 'quote' box, but in IE the box appears first and the remainder of the text is displayed later. Also, the edit window in IE gives the appearance of a fixed-width window although it does have a vertical scrollbar, but the scrollbar only scrolls a centimetre or two and then stops!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Hi,

I hadn't finished fixing the problem at the point of my posting above, but it should now all be fixed – bar the quote box problem, which I am investigating now.

We don't dislike IE7 particularly, it's just I happen to develop primarily in Firefox so that is always first to get stable. IE7 isn't a bad browser, and IE8 is going to be out soon and that is a very good browser.
IE6 on the other hand… I don't think there's a web developer out there who doesn't loath that ;).

ya ie6 is terrible but good thing about that is it does work in wine under linux unlike ie7 which does not even let you install it.  

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

oh and a side note at least you make it work with the mac browser. unlike mkportal, which hardly works on macs.

Back to check if IE is playing nice.

No Javascript error at bottom of page as yet, but I'll see what happens when I 'Preview' …


Down to NO PREVIEW and only one Javascript error. Seems as though it can't find the 'kfs' reference …
