Re: Slow admin area

Are you up to date on your CMSMS versions?

We had an issue on older versions of the admin template where there was a dropdown list of directories that took an age to generate on our cloud server.

Discussion of that here:

Re: MicroTiny and Emojis

I'd still lay the blame at not using utf8mb4 - you'd probably need to make sure your myslqi connection is using the right charset as well. Posting code in the forums is (rightly) frowned upon but you could try setting the charset (something like $this->_mysql->set_charset("utf8mb4") ) after the data...

Re: MicroTiny and Emojis

I've got emojis working in TinyMCE on other projects so I assume MicroTiny will support them ok. You probably will need to update your database charset - it's going to need to be utf8mb4 (I think the default for CMSM is utf8). If you have a dev environment you can play around with then you could try...

Re: FEU not logging out user on window close

Nothing useful to add I'm afraid, but we're having a similar issue. If a logged in user doesn't interact for long enough for the PHP session to close but not as long as the expiry time of the FEU cookie, then when they try to access the site again it thows a 502 error and they either have to clear t...

Re: Editor notes in admin screens

CalGuy's Content Utils module has an option for 'static text' which you can add to your template. Not sure whether you can add links to it or not - give it a go.

Re: Unable to upgrade FrontEndUsers due to foreign Key const

That's a blast from the past. I seem to remember that there was an issue with key restraints in older versions of FEU. Looking at this post from a few years back I seem to suggest it was fixed in versions of FEU after 1.31.2 so I would try upgrading FEU directly to 1.31.3 rather than anything earlie...

Re: Calguys Content Utilities not displaying in admin

There's a bug in version 2.5.2 of ContentUtils which throws a fatal error.

The bug (with suggested fix) is logged here:

http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/bug/view/12153

or you can roll back to a previous version, or wait for a updated release - sure it won't be long.

Re: I have been hacked

When we've had cases where malicious files were uploaded via the admin interface it's been down to password reuse from a user who had their password exposed in a different breach. Make sure you and your admins are using unique passwords. It's well worth checking in https://haveibeenpwned.com/ to see...

Re: Google Analytics add

CMSMS thinks anything surrounded by braces is a Smarty template tag and will try to process it. You can either let Smarty know not to try parsing the code by wrapping the javascript in {literal} {/literal} tags, or you can add a space immediately after the opening brace so that Smarty doesn't think ...

Environmental campaign website

Technically this is an update to a CMSMS site we built seven years ago, but it was essentially a complete redesign and re-build. https://www.eating-better.org/ We created some bespoke modules for them to manage their blog and campaigns as well as being able to list partners and members of staff.

Re: CMS Made Simple works with the managed linode server.?

We have a several CMSMS sites running on Cloudways managed hosting and it works very well.

You have shell access anyway, but you can do everything you need to do for managing CMSMS sites from within the Cloudways admin interface. I think it's a good fit.

Re: Recommendation for displaying Tweets?

We have a couple of 2.2 sites that are still using TweetMgr but in order to get it to work correctly we had to generate auth keys on the Twitter developer site and hard wire the credentials in. Obviously that's not ideal but it's working for us - and it does suggest that TweetMgr (or something simil...

Re: Function to add scripts in head in frontend mode

You'll want to use the contentPostRender event. In your main module class you can overload the DoEvent function, and if you then detect ContentPostRender you can add whatever extra code you need to. The code below isn't tested but should insert a string before the closing /html tag: function DoEvent...

Re: <textarea> tag not showing in browser

Assuming you're using TinyMCE (or MicroTiny) ... some older versions of the editor would strip empty tags. So if there's nothing in your textarea to start with that might be the problem. It's working fine for me here in the latest version though. You should try making sure you're up to date and then...
