  • you have to publish the post first. thats the trick, and essentially goes to the heart of why its not really a preview option, anymore.

    whooami, that’s not true – there is no requirement to publish a post before previewing it at all. It works just fine in draft mode.

    The one problem I’m having is that the Preview button seems to “float” all over the place in Firefox/Mac. One minute it’s where it should be, the next it’s sitting on top of the categories list, etc. Anyone else seeing this?

    Thinking about this further: This problem would go away if there were an option settable only by admin: “Allow HTML in User Profiles.”

    If someone knows of a way to do that, I’m home free.

    Thanks,

    You might try my WP-Digest add-on as an alternative:

    http://wp-plugins.net/plugin/wp-digest/

    Will require a bit more configuration, but you’ll have total control, and it’s more designed for the summary/digest task.

    More research: The exim_reject_log shows the error above, and also shows the mail headers, which include these lines:

    Envelope-from: <>
    and
    F From:

    So it’s clear that exim is dropping the welcome messages because it can’t find any From: information. None of the modifications to pluggable_functions.php I’ve found in this thread have made any difference.

    Then I found what I thought was going to be a breakthrough — phpinfo() showed “no value” for sendmail_from! So I added this to the .htaccess for the directory:

    php_value sendmail_from user@domain.com

    Now phpinfo() shows a valid send_mail_from value. Excellent. But no dice – If I tail the exim_reject_log and register a new user, I see that exim still sees no valid sender and refuses to send the message. Somehow it’s not picking up on the .htaccess directive for send_mail_from.

    Again, a simple PHP mail test script in the same directory sends out just fine – this is definitely a WordPress thing.

    Suggestions welcome.

    Having the same problem on a cPanel host with add-on domains, but not with main domains. I watched the exim_reject_log while registering a new user and saw this:

    2006-06-20 01:33:06 1FsbfW-0004kG-0p H=(userdomain.com) [203.56.140.212] F=<> rejected after DATA: there is no valid sender in any header line

    But in wp-includes/pluggable-functions.php, I had already altered the wp_mail function to include an explicit and valid From: address:

    “From: gooduser@userdomain.com” . “\n” .

    So I’m really puzzled as to why exim thinks there’s no valid sender. Thoughts?

    Thanks podz. Archives there, but not searchable unfortunately. Started plowing through manually, but gave up. I’ll keep hacking at this.

    whooami – Bingo, that did the trick, thanks.

    Seems like an .htaccess containing this should be part of the basic WP distro. If that’s not possible, then this could be part of the intro documentation.

    Hmm… Yes, I did put an index.html in the top-level plugins directory, but should propagate that to all of the plugin subdirs. Adding a redirect would really do the trick, for all but the most determined accesses. Seems like an apache allow/deny block would be ideal. Anyone have the syntax for that handy?

    That’s a very weird thing about Democracy – it has this idea of a “current” poll. By default, when you create a new one, all previous ones go to sleep. The thinking seems to be that you’ll always want a current poll in the sidebar, rather than putting polls into entry bodies, which stay alive forever.

    Anyway, your questions are answered in the Democracy docs, but quickly:

    To run them in entry bodies you’ll need to install the RunPHP plugin, and activate for each entry body that includes a poll.

    Once that’s going, you invoke a poll with:

    <?php jal_democracy(12); ?>

    I used WordPress to do the FAQ system for my hosting business:

    Rather than work around the chronology problem, I worked with it – I control index order by manipulating the publication date. It’s a hack, but gets the job done. It would be nice to have a plugin that would A) Override chronology for ordering and B) Provide a nice admin interface for setting post order.

    Problem solved: I was using the WP 1.2 syntax for the loop. Updated it to a more recent syntax and problem solved.

    To clarify: Yes, the script starts with:

    require(‘/path/to/wp-blog-header.php’);

    (otherwise it wouldn’t work at all). The output is like:

    Title1
    permalink1
    stripped content 1
    ———————–
    Title2
    permalink2
    stripped content 2
    ———————–

    Title5

    And then I get 15 of these:

    So those extra permalinks are not even complete. Where are they coming from?

    Upgrading to 2.01 fixed this problem for me.

    Note that in WP2 this option seems to have been moved to line 288 of admin-functions.php. Why there is no checkbox option to let the user choose their own preferred default is beyond me.
