Holiday Project


Greetings XMB Community!

I've carved out some vacation time for code projects, and XMB made it to the top of my to-do list.

I understand I've missed some significant activity in the community, and I will have to bring myself up to speed on all of that so we can work together as much as possible.

Other immediate tasks have come up that I need to deal with:

  • XMB Must Be Encrypted - Any XMB bugs or inconsistency with HTTPS URLs will have omg-pants-on-fire priority, right now.

  • Host Migration - The xmbforum2.com website must be moved to a better host that provides encryption, in support of the task above. The bug tracker is already on a new server at https://bugs.xmbforum2.com/ My annual bill for the old host is due January 19, and I do not want to pay that bill. That's called motivation!

  • Compatibility with Latest PHP and MySQL Servers - I did already commit some code changes earlier this year, so I hope this is nearly complete. This ties in with the host migration. The "new" community server will run the latest software.

Merry Christmas!

Thank you. And my subscription e-mail never came through on your reply. Is it just me?

Also, temporarily disabled hotlink protection. The Vary:Referer header was interfering with Chrome's image cache. Apache requires a special "NV" flag to avoid this problem. Will test this more later.

Not sure, I don't usually subscribe to topics, but here is another reply as requested! I did receive an email in regard to one of the bugs I reported - the trivial spelling issue [XMB1 0000510]: Spelling mistake in English.php

I'm in the middle of reviewing the HTTPS avatars patch. It gets part of the problem fixed, but needs to touch many more files that duplicate the code.

After the migration and patching, we should have a regular release cycle. That means testing and review, at least.

Avatar rabbit holes patched. This forum is updated and r2710 - r2711 in SVN takes care of it. Props to Xian for getting the user side of that bug fixed.

This patch touches user control panel, user registration, admin user editor, automatic remote image attachment in posts, and the [img] bbcode. All should allow HTTPS addressing.

Cool! :lol: The code and the auto attach feature both work on one of my test servers. So I'll go dig on this server here.

Yeah some incompatibility between the servers. file_get_contents() returns false, but curl can get the image. Not sure what the bug is here, if any.

I didn't change anything. Probably just a transient DNS failure or something.

bbs code is allowing https now, too .... probably was a dns failure, I changed the url and remote images work consistently. The other url still fails, often.

Time for a lunch break. The following bugs are recently fixed and can be tested:

#497 - Cache-Control headers for attachments should now have a comma instead of a semicolon.
#507 - Thread icons with participation dots should work now in today.php.
#517 - HTTPS member 'site' links will no longer source like "http://https://example.com" Chrome did a good job of hiding this, but the HTML and PHP were both ugly.
#520 - MySQL 5.6+ no longer throws warnings in XMB DEBUG mode in today.php.

#497 - I see nothing but commas in cache control headers
#507 - Participation Dots Good
#517 - I tested this a bunch of ways registration, admin edit user edit with http:// without http:// adding the s after Http and https:// everything worked. it added http:// if it was not present in the URL. ie: if one inputs www.google.com it adds http:// if anything is already there (http:// or http://) it does not add anything.

Also, members on this forum have no access to the site field in user control panel.

#520 Not Tested, yet. I don't remember having creds to modify config php on this server for debug mode .... maybe I just forgot?
