Errors encountered, problems noticed and other misc ramblings:
From 5.21 to next level
Preparing to update database...
Error performing MySQL command: UPDATE settings SET setting = 'Powered by: PhotoPost --replaceme--
Copyright 2007 All Enthusiast, Inc.' WHERE id=37
Error: Table 'username_forumswithgallery.settings' doesn't exist
From 5.3x to 5.5
5.5 to 5.6
5.6 to 5.61
5.61 to 60
6.0/6.0x to 6.1
Asks to remove upgrade.php before continuing, I do. Now how to continue? No link. No big deal really...
Gallery should be working now. Let's have a look. Main gallery page works fine, clicking some categories works, others do not. 500 error. Let's check permissions on files, this server runs apache2.x
At least 4 in templates are chmod 666, the rest, 644.
images/Dropshadow, gallery/stylesheets/blacktar, dark, darblue, directories 644, wrong perms!
pp-inc.php, showgallery.php, showmembers.php all are set to 666, wrong perms.
Fixing permissions allows access to gallery as expected.
Let's check the quick reply box first up.
Closer to being solved, but no cigar for some reason, integration is not complete / working properly in IE7. There must be an: 'if IE7' fix for this somewhere we could add.
Let test some features.
Display who is viewing a category?
This option adds a query to the Show Gallery page. Set to yes, doesn't seem to show anywhere on gallery. (Needs who's online pal enabled to work)
Show html code to display photos?
Do you want to show the img src html tag for a photo? yes no
Show direct links to photos?
Do you want to display the page link to a photo?
Display Featured Photos on this page?
None of the above work. (From show photo options)
Index options, show random photos on index set to yes, shows 29 random images?
Show most popular images, shows 9 photos?
Both of the above appears broken or not settable.
Index options, working as expected, spacing of cells still an issue on forum style layout (default) and thumbnail gallery layout.
Upload photo options, testing; use uniform thumbnail feature set to yes, images set to 100x100. Not sure what this does yet.
Under sidebar settings, enable statistics. Works! Enable top posters, doesn't work.
Enable sidebar, now have two sets of statistics and non working top posters.
Interesting, top posters pal doesn't work on index, but works in galleries on left sidebar just fine.
Display Recent Comments and who's Online Pals do not seem to work anywhere.
Random image pal shows 6 images. Where's the settings for this?
Highest rating pal doesn't work on index, but works in galleries.
Use the who's online pal? Set this to yes, who's online shows under gallery as expected, AND, removes the statistics and top posters pal on bottom of index page.
Weird, now the top posters pal on sidebar shows data as expected, recent comments pal seems to work now as well. Changing the settings seems to have "fixed" a few things.
Enabling calendar, this is still too wide for the rest of the sidebar with my sidebar set to 199 to match forums sidebar. No big deal lets change the size and check it. Calendar arrow to click for previous month does not work.
Seems that if setting "use forum stylesheets" is set to no, and then back to yes, calendar link now works as expected.
On main gallery page, recent photos pal is to the right of the sidebar, below main gallery menu, above gallery, forum layout.
Click any category and the recent photos pal jumps up above the gallery main menu. Code out of place?
Final notes at this point:
Many improvements and fixes, some things seemed to "get fixed" after changing settings back and forth.
Code now validates for all pages I checked it seems, except with zoom enabled.
I'm very pleased this upgrade went ok and most issues found I can live with.
Would love to solve this reply box/quick reply box stuff for IE7. Will continue to look into it on this end and see what I can figure out.
Thanks guys, much appreciated. I'm happy to be back up to date and hopefully secure and operational.
