Text editor posting box won't show on my updated site.


Using Jamroom

The 2 sites are not the same - you're running the NEW Jamroom Core 6.5.0+ on penneywhistle, but you are still on 6.4.0 on fotmd.com right? The version of TinyMCE on Core 6.5.0+ is newer than the version on 6.4.0 and thus needs a new editor template (or updates applied to your custom template).

You can't compare the 2 since they are from totally different versions. Let me know if that helps.

Upgrading an old site to Jamroom Core 6.5.0+


Announcements

I wanted to post a quick update here with steps on updating old Jamroom sites to the newest release when using the Marketplace.

A LOT of changes have occurred since the initial Jamroom Core 6 releases (i.e. Core 6.1.0, Core 6.2.0) and there are a number of changes in the Marketplace module as well to make sure updates install smoothly. However, on old core installs the Marketplace module does not have the "reset" cache code in it that allows the web server to "see" the new and updated version of the core module once it is updated. So that requires an extra step when updating an old site:

- Log in to the old site and go to the Marketplace -> System Updates. You'll see the new core update - press "update" to the update to the new Core.

This is likely to FAIL - you will end up with an internal server error. To fix this you need to restart the web server - this will reset the web server cache and allows it to "see" the updated Core PHP scripts.

Once the web server is restarted you should be able to go back to your site index and go into the ACP again. Once there:

- Run an Integrity Check and Reset Caches
- Go to Marketplace -> System Updates and install ONLY the update available for the Marketplace module
- Run an Integrity Check and Reset Caches
- Go back to Marketplace -> System Updates and install the rest

That should get your site updated to the latest.

Let us know if you have any issues.

Thanks!

Strumelia:
Oh and i want to repeat that the penneywhistle site where it's NOT working right is my site that I updated all jamroom core and modules on. The fotmd site has not yet been updated and the text editors are working fine. Not sure if that's relevant or not, but worth mentioning.

That makes sense - you need to "reset" your custom template on your penneywhistle site so the new form_editor.tpl takes over or it's not likely to work.

Strumelia:
If the two above templates are identical (and the one is working while the other is not), then the problem is not actually in my custom form_editor template code, right?

Do you maybe want a screenshot of the console similar to above, but from the site that is working correctly?, to compare errors?

I can see there are quite a lot of differences between your custom template and the default - I can see for sure yours is not going to work on mobile correctly. So use the "compare" button to see all the differences.

Extending jrCore Icons


Jamroom Developers

Yep - it's just as easy. Create 2 new directories in your modules img directory - i.e.:

ntYourModule/img/icons_black
ntYourModule/img/icons_white

And place the icons inside the respective directory. They should be 64x64 transparent PNGs - one black, one white (the core will handle coloring them if you choose to use a color). Reset caches and make sure the "Reset Icon Cache" is checked and you're good to go.

I'd recommend naming the icons with the module name - i.e.

ntYourModule_checkmark.png

Then you can use "ntYourModule_checkmark" when making the jrCore_icon call.

Let me know if that helps.

Unable To Process Your Request Error on self hosted Jamroom


Using Jamroom

Jamroom will not use 30 connections at once - it opens/closes connections as needed and unless your site is really busy you're not going to get to 30. You should see under 10 99% of the time.

Do you have other software running on the server? Is your hosting provider forcing persistent connections?

Video Upload Form Gone


Using Jamroom

I had no issues converting this video - make sure you are running version 3.0.1 of the video module - you can also try reloading the video module from the Marketplace -> Tools -> Reload module and skins.

Let me know if that helps.

Video Upload Form Gone


Using Jamroom

Annush:
Hi, I'm not sure if this is the link you're after as the video is on my hard disc https://fatsafatsa.com/fatsafatsatv/video/137/bad-boyz-antio-produced-by-kim-nicolaou-1999 I agree that most video formats are now outdated but since they're given as a choice on the platform (skin) what can we do? Can an update be done to give people only choices that the player or whatever reads the codecs to do their job? BTW - just as your reply came I was trying to upload flv - that failed too. Thanks for your help.

That link is just taking me to the page where the video did NOT work. I need a copy of the actual video - can you upload it to somewhere I can download it at?
