Hi..

I Dont think the beta & final version of vb 3.5 will be that different for photopost integration purposes, saying that i haven't got the beta... although i'll try some tests tonight and see how she runs.

Micheal would make sure integration is perfect for the final of vb

Its my understanding that the 3.5 beta should fix the login problem with those of us who have our forums and photo galleries on different subdomains (even though they have a shared mySQL database on the same server).

I'm a newbie with only about 2 weeks usage of both programs. So if someone more daring is willing to attempt the beta upgrade and report back about whether this fixes the "post requests from foreign hosts not allowed" problem when using differing subdomains, I'd sure appreciate hearing from them here.

Eager to hear! Thanks. -- Rik

I upgraded vb 3.0.7 to the 3.5 beta today. However, I get the following error message from the main photopost page and when I attempt to use the admin gateway:

Warning: main(./includes/functions_showthread.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/html/subs/photos/header-inc.php on line 82

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required './includes/functions_showthread.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear') in /var/www/html/subs/photos/header-inc.php on line 82

Any suggestions on what might be wrong?

FYI, vb 3.5 beta installed flawlessly and is working flawlessly so far. But I had to take down Photopost. I'm going to revert to vb 3.0.7 so that I can put Photopost back online.

Any help would be appreciated so that I can attempt it again tomorrow.

Thanks and regards. -- Rik

Please take note VB 3.50 beta is not supported yet but you can try this

in header-inc.php find this

require_once('./includes/functions_showthread.php');

replace with

require_once('./includes/class_postbit.php');

I got essentially the same error message: "No such file or directory in var/www/html/subs/photos/header-inc.php on line 82."

I guess I'll have to wait for an update of Photopost. Our problem is that no-one can log onto Photopost due to it being on a different subdomain than vBulletin. I'll see about turning off integration with vB until both vb3.5 and the next version of Photopost allow this.

Thanks. -- Rik

Your vbpath in config settings has to be incorrect them as I downloaded 3.5 and there is most definately a class_postbit.php file in the includes directory and I beleive thats the file it looks like that replaces the functions we use to grab in functions_showthread.php

Chuck:

My path was correct. I just forgot to bring vB 3.5 beta back online to apply the change. With your advice above, Photopost indeed works with vb 3.5 beta. Thanks!!!

However, I still have the a problem I had with 3.0.7. vB is at Forums.Domain.com and Photopost is at Photos.Domain.com. Both subdomains are on the same server and sharing the same mySQL database. Photopost uses the "pp_" prefix in the database.

The new setup using vb 3.5 (beta 1) gets rid of the "Unable to accept post requests from foreign hosts" problem I was previously experiencing. So, I'm very grateful and will continue with the beta as that's a step forward.

However, no one can logon to Photopost. It appears to be a cookie problem as if a cookie isn't being set. What happens is that there is no error message when one logs on, but the system doesn't recognize the user (i.e. Welcome, UserName) . That applies to me. However, if I enter the PPP admin program and exit it a cookie is set and I'm recognized. Obviously, that isn't an option for my users.

Is there a way to fix that? (Should I open a new thread?). I feel I'm so close to getting this subdomain issue solved once and for all by using vB 3.5.

Thanks. -- Rik

ps: I also visited our Forums site and the cookie set by the PPP adm-index.php wasn't recognized anymore. Does that help?

Did you set your PP cookie and your vB cookie to use the .domain.com format?

Yes, its been set that way from the beginning. But don't worry. I'm going to revert to the production version of each product and give up keeping vB and Photopost on separate subdomains for the time being. I just hope that once Photopost is adjusted to the changes in vB 3.5, that the dual subdomain issue is fully resolved.

Thanks again. -- Rik

There is no subdomain issue in regards to our product. Many customers run subdomains.

From my testing so far with Photopost and VB 3.5 the only change needed is the one I noted above.

Are you saying I can run both off two differing subdomains:

vB: forums.domain.com
Photopost: photos.domain.com

I couldn't get that going due to cookie issues [getting the "Unable to accept posts from foreign hosts" when I tried] so I've since reverted to running the photos off of the forums subdomain (forums.domain.com/photos).

In any case, since I'm a newbie to both programs, I'll wait for more experienced users to pave the way on this one or I understand things better.

Thanks again. -- Rik

You already said VB 3.5 gets rid of the foreign host thing so its just a matter of cookie settings being right.

I have made note of the one change that will be needed from what I see we need to change when vb 3.5 goes gold.

Okay here is my take so far

There are no issues running in subdomains

Have found a couple minor things I am tweaking here and there.

Please realize we do not support VB 3.5 until it goes gold. My posts here are merely informational on my dealings with the new product in a discussion manner.

I will send ya the header-inc.php I am using on my beta site michael so you can see what changes I have made on my test site to get it working with 3.
5. Not many changes are needed really that I see. I noted one above here in this thread the one file change to replace the function_showthread.php There is one more require needed for the comments and wysiwyg.

There is one last issue I see and thats getting the smiley boxes to work on comments as somethings coded a little different.

In forums/vb3.php, you'll need to change:

line 617:
Code:
Content visible to verified customers only.
to:
Code:
Content visible to verified customers only.
line 623:
Code:
Content visible to verified customers only.
to:
Code:
Content visible to verified customers only.
I believe that will fix it.
