A few things I've found while trying to upgrade to the new beta 5 Reviewpost... 1.
The upgrade script started spitting it's dummies at me when trying to go through the upgrade stages, it got "update 3.2 database" and simply stopped saying it could not connect to database, which I worked out was around line 1477 or so in the upgrade switch, each subsequent upgrade bit after that also failed for the same could not connect reasons. Anyway, I believe the line require "config-inc.php";
was missing at certain points, so having added that in, the upgrade script then worked smoothly for me, or appears to have anyway.
2. The next stage was turning on the .htaccess bit to run the seo
version. this has gone fairly well it appears, except for a few minor errors.
Clicking on a username in the review section gives the following error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /mypathwouldbehere/reviews/member.php on line 1137
Which i've not been able to fathom out thus far, as that's not a seo
error, that's an actual error in the members page, which i've never had before, so it says there's a bug somewhere in the members page. That error happens whether it's set to none, spider or seo
Another error which was not there before the upgrade, which I have to presume is a bug, is on the front page, the "most viewed" links have the wrong path and all lead to 404 pages, which I have to presume is a seo
error, as those links take you to the right place with seo
turned off, or in spider mode.
Another error, which I don't even know is an error or a bug or what, is again with the "most viewed" box on the main index, the length of the text links is set at 20 or there abouts and looks really daft with the amount of space being left after the 3 dots.
I am still going through the scripts at the moment looking for other bugs, this is beta "testing" after all, but most of it seems to be working fine.
One thing I have noticed is that the navbar is seriously skinny, it doesn't sit right compared to the other head bars on the pages. In the navbar, there is also a "members list" option... Could this possibly be made an admin assigned optional or something, the only people who upload products on my site are me and 2 other people and it's pointless me showing visitors that information, which means i'd have to manually edit that template to remove that.
I'll keep looking and will post any further issues I find.
A fix for the members profile page bit would be nice to have quite quickly. Oh and yes chuck, i've done the uploading nice fresh stuff and there's no customisations in my review section.
It's live but buggy, but as said, that's what beta testing is about, you can see it here: Main Index - Reviews
