[Plugin: Alkivia Open Community] Several Problems After Upgrade to .10 (28 posts)

    I upgraded to the new Alkivia .10 today. I have 2 problems.

    (1) The first is that all of the subscriber thumbnails have disappeared. The original photos are still in their user sections.

    (2) The plugin expanded the user roles to: "Author|User role" as opposed to the original "Author." This has thrown my alignment out of whack. Is there some way to remove the "User Role" part and just leave the actual assigned user role?

    My website is: http://www.bmedreport.com/bmed-user-community

    Thanks!!
    Chris

    Alkivia Support: Can you provide a link to download the version 0.9.3? I need to reinstall the old version until these problems are resolved. My User Community looks horrible right now. Thanks - Chris.

    I have never understood these tarball thingies. I am also on a windows operating system so I suspect that this is only for Linux. Is this correct? I believe that this raw code that needs to be compiled? Thanks for the help. Chris

    A tarball is just a compresed package. The same as a zip or a rar file.
    Tools like winrar uncompress them the same way.

    So far it's a great update. The author replace link is working great now!

    One thing that stopped working was using a gallery photo as a avatar.

    I've reverted back to the older edition using an FTP. This fixed the alignment problem due to changes in user names; however,presumably because I used FTP, a settings menu bar for Alkivia was not install or does not appear; thus, I cannot access any settings. How can gain access to settings?

    Last, reverting back to this old edition did not restore the avatar issues previously discussed. Hopefully, a fix is coming soon for this part.

    Thanks again for your help.

    after the upgrade, i wonder why previous photo images for SOME of the community is a generic avatar. i've gone into several users profiles and though the settings are the same for eacy there is no rhyme or reason at this time why some have their correct gallery image / mug shot displaying or the generic avatar. ty. r

    The issue with avatars will be solved really soon. A new version will be released as soon as avatars get working again.

    About role names, it can show if not using WP 2.9 or higher. Tell me if the issue shows in WP 2.9.1. (As WP 2.9 changed the way it manages the roles strings).

    Shahil, you have to be a bit patient with free software. we must find some free time to develop and fix it, as we need first to to spend our time on our paid work ;)

    Avatars should work in 0.10.1

    Txanny - I take it that your no response to my question about restoring the settings menu after I reinstalled .9.3 means you do not know how to fix this while we wait for .10.1? Thanks for your work on this plug-in. Chris

    Scratch my last comment. I just noticed that .10.2 is out. Thanks! Chris. Hopefully this resolve my problems...

    Everything appears to be working now (thanks!) except for 1 thing: Alkivia expands the user roles, for example, from "Administrator" to "Administrator|User role" This causes everything to go out of alignment in the layout. Any idea on how to drop the "|User role" part out? Chris

    cfisher: What WordPress version are you using? The '|User role' part was striped in WP 2.9 when WordPress changed the roles translation method.

    Are you using a previous version? Perhaps WP 2.8 ?

    I am using the latest version: 2.9.1. You can see this at my user community here: http://www.bmedreport.com/bmed-user-community

    It's a strange behavior as this strings are not present in 2.9.1.
    Perhaps a fault uplgrade?

    In Your site code says that you're running "WordPress abc". This is not an standard WordPress version. It reports as:

    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress abc" />

    When standard version reports as:

    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress 2.9.1" />

    What do you see when creating a new user or editing a user on the role box?

    Keep in mind that my WordPress version number is hidden due to a feature of the WP-Security Admin Tools plugin. The roles definitely do not include the '|User role' part when creating a new or editing an existing user. Chris

    I deactivated the WP-Security Admin Tools plugin just to see if that interfered with anything and the '|User role' still appeared so that is probably not it.

    The other question to consider is why these user role changes only appeared after a .10 upgrade. You would think that if they existed already they would have showed in .9, which they never did even after I upgraded to 2.9.1.

    Noticed you came out with a new version. I installed it. Nothing seemingly changed though I suspect this was a back-end change for the version number that gets changed with the WP-Security Plugin.

    I still have the "|User role" problem. Does anyone else get this??

    1 side note: I received an install error when I tried to do the auto-update to .10.3; however, all you need to do is deactivate the old version and then install the new one... no problem whatsoever after this.

    When only changes the last version number it means is a bug fix version. No new features and no code change, just bug fixing or new translation introduced. You always have the changelog to see what has changed from one version to another.

    About the string problem, I'm trying to figure out why you have this issue as I cannot reproduce it in any of my installs. The plugin just shows the translated role names as WordPress returns them, so I have to check within WordPress core why in you case returns a wrong translation.

    Can you report here all your plugins list? Specially if you have any plugin related to users or roles.

    Hi Txanny,

    I thought I'd check in to see if any progress on the User Role issue discussed above? Thanks - Chris

    Hi Txanny,

    Any luck figuring out what causes this issue:
    Alkivia expanded the user roles to: "Author|User role" as opposed to the original "Author."

    I really like to get this fixed if possible.

    Thanks!
    Chris
