View Full Version : RP 3.01 - Template Selection(FIXED)
September 7th, 2005, 03:17 PM
We just updated to 3.01 and in the options section for a category, we can no longer select the alternate template type. I seem to recall two options before the upgrade but now the only selection is 'regular'.
We did rerun the upgrade.php script to add the HTML selection switches so not sure if some other setting got changed so that we can't see the selection or if it is a bug introduced in 3.01.
Additionally, the open/close selection for RP no longer appears to function. If I set the field to 'closed' and log out, I can still access the categories, etc. without getting the 'close message.' Note that I tested with another browser with a cleared cache to make sure it wasn't a caching issue.
The field itself appears to update as when I log back in as the admin, the setting says closed but it doesn't appear to be taking effect.

I just tested my main site and test install and both operate fine. I indeed ran the upgrade again to add those two new switchs so I dont think anything there would be an issue
Just try clearing your cache clearing cookies and try again. You should get a your board is closed message if your logged in as admin

I doubt it's a cache issue as I tried another browser with a cleared cache already (per my mention in my original post).
I just tried it again from another machine and I get the same result.
If I go into the db, I can see the ppboards setting get changed from opened to closed and vice-versa but RP remains open. If I visit, I can still see everything and don't get the 'closed' message.
Have you updated anything else in the build that might impact that? When we went from 3 to 3.01 I only updated the changed files so if something else got updated that wasn't on the list, perhaps we're missing something.
Any comment about the category template selection? I can activate it if I go into the db directly and change the template field to 1 from 0 but don't see the selection in the category admin interface regardless of what the db is actually set to.

Okay $Globals['rpboards'] should be $Globals['ppboards']
As far as the template thing make sure in Template manager in admin you have the other template active. It will not appear for selection unless it is active. By default it is not active unless you make it so.

Has the build been updated? Lots of references to $Globals['rpboards'] in the current build and don't want to upgrade by hand.
For the templates, I might be missing something, but where is the template manager? In the admin interface I don't see anything that I think is it. I have the 'edit templates' in the left column but that doesn't show any activation options, just shows the available templates, including the name1.tmpl ones.

The build has not been updated yet probally sometime today. I have sent it to Michael to be updated on the server but no reply yet.
As far as the template thing. If you want to use the additional template type you need to in admin go to
Edit Product Types and set that additional template set customer service to ACTIVE IS YES
By default it is set to NO on upgrade and that is most likely why you cant select any other template sets cause only the one is active ;)

Found the option and it is working as expected.
I'll check back later today to see if there's a new build.
