Re: Memory problems (works fine on another host)

Oh boy. This turned out to be an empty database. :-[ I created the database and a user with privileges but forgot to populate the database with data. In my defence, the error messages aren't particularly helpful in this situation.

Memory problems (works fine on another host)

Having an issue with an upgrade. Started at 1.11.4. Site has unknown history. Upgraded on my server successfully through 1.11.13 > 1.12.2 > 2.2.15. Worked fine on my server (PHP 7.2). See system info below. Transferred site to client's hosting. Note this is upgrade site 4 of 5, all of which very sim...

Re: Smarty 3 change broke my nav (1.10 to 1.11)

Much fiddling around lead to the answer:

Code: Select all

{assign var='submenu' value="submenu"|cat:($node->depth-1)}
You have to put

Code: Select all

$node->depth-1
in brackets.

$node->depth is an INT by the way.

Re: Back Ground Image

One way: If you use TinyMCE (find out at My Preferences > My Account > User Preferences > Select WYSIWYG to use). Then: Extensions > TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor and have a look around there (can't find an installation with TinyMCE at the moment to give you further details). Pretty sure there is an option...

Smarty 3 change broke my nav (1.10 to 1.11)

Upgrading a very old inherited site. I have a line in Menu Manager that worked fine in 1.10.3: {assign var='submenu' value="submenu"|cat:$node->depth-1} However now I have moved on to 1.11.13 (Smarty 3), instead of generating a value of "submenu2" for example, it outputs only "-1" which breaks the n...

Re: Maintenance settings does not enable

Hmm, I have just checked on one of my 2.2.15 sites and maintenance mode does indeed set the output to 503. Sorry, I was wrong above. Every day's a school day. ;D

I don't know why yours is not behaving.

Re: Maintenance settings does not enable

The idea of the "down for maintenance" mode at Site Admin > Settings - Global Settings > Maintenance Mode is to change every page to a message to imply "we're working on the site at the moment". It's not meant to output an HTTP error.


EDIT: This is wrong, see below...

That software was released the best part of 10 years ago. Rather than trying to troubleshoot your time would be better spent upgrading. As a first step you could paste the system info so we can see what modules are installed - instructions in my footer.

Re: Question to the community about my own modules

Hi Bess, I am glad you still have some love left for CMSMS. O0 I have used your Quotes Made Simple (Reloaded) - thank you!

LISE not importing a ListIt2 instance after upgrade

Upgrading a site from 1.11.something. Upgraded to 1.12.2 without issue. Upgraded to 2.2.15. It has an instance of ListIt2. To upgrade this and get it working on 2.2.15 I installed LISE and then clicked: Extensions > LISE > Import from existing LI2 instances: Sadly this gives a 500 error: [30-Mar-202...

Re: FormBuilder Date Picker Default To Blank

Well I had a look at the page and its HTML and could not see anything obvious. I see you have autocomplete=off. In Chrome, my browser happily populates name, address etc. but not birthday. Same on my phone. Maybe someone else has some ideas.

Re: FATAL ERROR: could not load module ModuleManager for upgrade

A couple more ideas:
  • did you clear cache? Site Admin > System Maintenance > Cache and content
  • white screen is often a PHP error - look in your host's error list for errors

Re: Sticky Menu or Floating Header

is it possible to create a template that uses a basic page with a sticky or floating head or top menu? Welcome. As DIGI3 has said, anything you can do in HTML you can do in CMSMS. So the answer to your question is yes. It's all done with templates and replacing static text in your HTML template wit...
