So the only that left unfixed is the link color in sidebar. Can you temporary enable sidebar in your forum home? Just to check the link colors.

By the way. Have found sidebar very useful. You can add a dozen of good things there. Why don't use it. BOP5 has also released a nice addon to display sidebar in any page.

I've never done that, or used it before... :confused:

I'll do a check and see if I can figure out where to do that .. :up:

Admincp-> Settings-> Options-> Forum Sidebar and Block Options

Click Enable Forum Sidebar and Save

Then go Forums & Moderators-> Forum Blocks Manager

Click Add and then choose any type of block eg Threads

There are dozens of custom blocks here.

Just keep in mind that sidebar is available only on forumhome. But with that addon you can show it everywhere.

I'll give a look after lunch and a short nap. I was not expected miracles as only a font size was different there. I do believe that is from sidebar style. Have seen many styles not supporting well sidebar.

Can I temporary activate sidebar in your forumhome?

As I was expected all than default styles are not supporting sidebar. I mean they don't have updated colors etc. They use default style colors, so blue links. Also there is a messing there. Check the attached screenshot. I tried all your available styles and only the default style works.

paradoxG(r)eek 17 Apr 2017 12:16

@BadgerDog

As I don't like to let you in the middle of the road, tell me which is your main (most common) style and after rest I'll try to update sidebar colors meeting the colors of your main style.

Is not a difficult work. Just boring and frustated, but as all others have been fixed, is not good to let it alone.

Well, I've never had the need to use sidebars just to get text colors working and we've not needed sliders in 10+ years of running the forum ... :)

I think it would just confuse our very old age demographic of member.. :D

.. and I don't have anyone who can fix the sidebar style to work on our site, so how can I get the blue/grey text to be black without getting into that stuff..

Thanks for checking ..

Not with any style we have.. just looks like the pic I attached in previous post...

I even just flushed caches, refreshed screens and turned OFF Vbulletin sidebar option and there's still nothing on the right side of the screen?

BadgerDog 17 Apr 2017 14:28

Chris...

I tried everything and I could no longer get the right side of Video Club home screen to appear any longer in Firefox 52.0.2 which is our standard browser. It's what we've been using all along for testing Video Club.

So, I tried Safari Version 10.1 (12603.1.30.0.34) for the Mac and the right side of Video Club home screen appears on it.

So, whatever you changed when you went to test sliders on our site and activated one of them for your testing, has caused something in Video Club to no longer work with Firefox 52.0.2 and our site.

Perhaps think about what steps you did when you tested on our site and reverese them to see if that helps?

Other than that, perhaps download and try FireFox yourself and see if you experience the same issues.

If it's not going to work for us now with FireFox, we have a broader issue... thanks..

Regards,
Doug

Edit: I even rebooted my computer and also tried disabling Video Club, then re-enabling it... still no right hand side of the home screen with FireFox browser....

I did nothing more than activated a sidebar block (Thread), taking a screenshot and finally removing that block.

I'll give a look.....

This is a screenshot that I just got from your site. As you can see, sidebar is there.
And as I wrote you just after your first report, tt was there before.

I'm also using FF 52.0.2 and sidebar appears fine to me.
Also I'm attaching a screenshot from style settings as a proof that your style had blue links in sidebar.

Finally I changed the links to black and hope that now is ok for you.

PS: As a proof that video club page works (and thus sidebar), I Liked the video at:

Well, I don't know what action has affected our FF 52.0.2 that's preventing the right sidebar from appearing any longer, but attached is what we see...

I've rebooted, cleared browser caches, cleared web browsing history, cleared our Sucuri Firewall cache...

So, I have no idea what's left, but I can't release this live until we figure out why your simple test of sidebar capability on our site as a test to demonstrate the blue/grey color source, has removed the right sidebar capability from just our browser.

Any ideas?

By the way, what hex code can I plug into the variable you show that would make our text just black?

1.- I've tested it with FF, Chrome, IE Edge, Safari and works fine.
2.- I used #000000 (black) as link color and #FFFFF (white) as hover.

Hmmm... :confused:

I loaded Safari because the right panel on home page isn't appearing with our FireFox broswer, but I don't see where that text has been changed so it appears black?

It's still blue/grey when I view it under Safari?

Seeing more carefully your screenshot i can see the Open/Close arrow to be there. Maybe you've closed it. Click the arrow at the very right of the page.

That right double arrow has always been there through all versions of Video Club we've tested and I mentioned it to you in an old post. You said it was for sidebar use, but it's never done anything.

I can click on it all day, but nothing happens as a result.

I still don't understand why it's there if sidebar option is disabled in our vBulletin, which it is..

Well that's the problem..

We're using Medium as the default, although people can select light and dark as optional.

I also Milsurps labeled styles for testing with Milsurps.Com as the default one...

I guess ALL our templates should be BLACK text regardless of which one is chosen..

I'm using sidebar's design and not settings. I don't check if it's enabled or not. I need it to show data and instead to add a static block I've added the sidebar which also has the Open/Close functionality.

Have you tried to login with my details?

This is not a problem. When I logon I seen this style visible to me and I thought that this is the default. The reason that I didn't changed all was simple to avoid double work. I was waiting your feedback to see if colors are ok for you, and if yes, then it's 5 min work to change all other styles. So? Do you agree with those colors? If you prefer different colors give me the hex values for link and for hover.

As per your request, all your template (other than vb Default) have now as link color in sidebar #000000 (Black) and hover #FFFFFF (white).

I am the owner/moderator .. ;)

So, for clarity.. when you tested to see if you could make sidebars on our site work, you changed nothing?

Question: Is the right panel in home screen programmed as a sidebar in your code, which is why the unnecessary double arrow appears in video club, but on no other add-on or vBulletin page we use has it showing?

Thanks..

.

No. Sidebar was active. The reason that it invisible is because your 3 blocks there were inactive. Sidebar appears in 2 ways:
1.- If it's active
2.- If there are active blocks.

As a proof that the sidebar was already active is that you can't build any block with inactive sidebar. There is a message with a link to activate it.

The only that I did was to cleate a block of latest threads, to get a screenshot and then to delete the block.

BUT AGAIN !! I can see perfectly the sidebar in video pages with FF 52.0.2. Is a problem with your own installation of FF. And if I remember well you said that with Safari you can see it. Is NOT a functionality error. Is a local (computer) error. Do you have the possibility to try your site from another computer?

Something is going wrong with you styles but don't know what. While the child Templates of mil.... Templates set were auto updated, the first 3 three updated only the hover color and not the link. I've changed those 3 one by one and I checked them.

BadgerDog 17 Apr 2017 20:34

Chris.. I fixed it...

I repeated the steps you did to test sidebars ..

1. Turned ON the sidebar option in vBulletin in AdminCP
2. Activated Forum Threads sidebar for ALL forums as a test...
3. Went to our site home page and saw the same jumble you saw when I clicked on the side bar to pop out from the left.
4. Clicked Video Club link and the main home page now had the right panel back !!!
5. Went back into AdminCP and de-activated Forum Threads sidebar for ALL forums ..
6.. Turned OFF the sidebar option in vBulletin in AdminCP.

Re-checked Video Club home page and the right panel is still there, so by reversing your steps, it seems to have solved the problem with my FireFox browser ..

The blue/grey text replace with black/whie looks great with the templates marked..

Light
--Dark
---Medium

It's still blue/grey when selecting..

--Milsurps Templates
---- SSL Milsurps Templates
---------Milsurps.com Light
---------Milsurps.Com Medium
---------Milsurps.Com Dark

Thanks.. :)

Regards,
Doug

BadgerDog 17 Apr 2017 20:45

Chris... I've checked again and I see you must have worked on the various templates some more.. thanks ... :)

The blue/grey text replace with black/whie looks great with the templates marked..

Here's what I see runnign through the various templates..

Light ...... OK
--Dark .....OK
---Medium OK

--Default (still blue/grey)

--Milsurps Templates (still blue/grey)
---- SSL Milsurps Templates (still blue/grey)
---------Milsurps.com Light ..... OK
---------Milsurps.Com Medium (still blue/grey)

Only the Milsurps.Com Medium I found it not updated. Milsurps Templates and SSL Milsurps Templates as you can see in the attached screenshots are ok.

The problem is why, even if I'm getting message for updating child templates (showing the names), they don't really update.

What happen with sidebar? Have you found any other computer to test it?

Chris.... :)

Sent you an additional PayPal for the extra work you performed on our site, assisting with the text coloring etc.... much appreciated.... :up:

We're going to start planning for going live for our membership sometime this weekend, but we wanted to do further testing with the PM functions of "approving, rejecting etc.." first, to make sure there's no issues with that function.

I mentioned it earlier, but some thoughts for future design features we'd like to see, which some other mods similar to yours currently offer. It would be great if Video Club was capable of...

1. Allowing a user (or Admins) to EDIT existing video article information and perhaps also edit and change the existing thumbnail pic, like they can when first adding the video to the club, that would be an excellent function ..

2. An option (perhaps in AdminCP settings?) to have TAGS shown or not shown in the mod's video display screen. In my opinion, they clutter the display and my experience has been a lot of our members would never use them, as they don't even use the ones in vBulletin, so it would be great if we could turn them off being displayed at all.

Thanks again for all your work... :up:

Doug

To be honest I just changed the lists there. Haven't tested PMs but as they were working fine at my Media Gallery mod, I'm sure that they'll work fine on this mod too.

hmmm...... There is a legal problem here which I need to read more in depth. Actually the original code was supporting Add/Edit so I did extra work to remove the Edit code. The problem is that providers does not allows any data modifications. They asked users to keep same title, description etc, as they count it copyright of the original poster.

You're welcome Chris .. :)

We do not want members uploading a bunch of crap, so we do want to control and moderate which groups can upload and which can't.

Ok, I just started testing the PM function and it doesn't seem to work as designed...

I had a user called "tester" who uploaded a YouTube video just fine. It told him (message quickly flashed by) it was being submitted for approval before posting and returned to the main screen. Just an idea.. the message that it's being submitted for approval comes and goes so fast, I think there's going to be a lot of problems with people who can't read it quick enough and as a result, when they don't see there video on the main screen, they'll keep uploading it over and over again, thinking the previous upload didn't work. How about a HUGE message (admin phase configurable?) where it STOPS, they read it and then have to hit enter to go on... or, something like that?

Now to the main problem....

The designated user ID (default was userid 1 but we changed it to 31098), who is supposed to receive notices and moderate, never sees anything indicating there's a video to approve?

I even checked user ID 1 (Admin) to see if it went there and no, it didn't?

The original uploader called "tester" sees his video in his "My Videos" area, but not on the main screen, so I know the uploaded video is there someplace. By the way, you should mark videos in the "My Videos" area as "Waiting for Approval to Post", or something like that, so the original uploader knows it's status and it's still waiting for approval.

I've attached the Usergroup settings for the uploader, who can do everything shown, except moderate and they must have videos approved.

By the way, as an aside... the Admin Usergroup has ALL boxes checked, yet they can freely upload without having to ge approval from anyone, so I don't think that setting, by accident or design, is work the way you want?

Hope this helps figure out where the issue is..

Regards,
Doug

How about a HUGE message (admin phase configurable?) where it STOPS, they read it and then have to hit enter to go on... or, something like that?

Redirection messages have the same speed all over all vB functions. Don't know if the delay can be changed somewhere in 1000's vB settings, but I can't change the delay.

What I can do is to add one more setting and admin selects if he wants redirection or halt pages. Halt page means a static page where the user must clicks a link to continue. Maybe it's sound better but believe me is frustated for most users especially if they want to add many videos.

I don't think that any vB action which needs approval (eg normal post) has any type of notification. Moderators are responsible to visit ModCP from time to time to check what is under upproval. In anycase is not a big deal to add such notification. Just keep in mind that the id that you'll setup to be an active id. Moste webmasters are registering a system account to control such "noreply" messages and never check them.

I'll check it, but I'm almost sure that it works. The video appears in "My Videos" page with remark: Awaiting Approval (red color). The phrase to change the text is: videoclub_unapproved

Users who have permission to Moderate don't need approval even if the setting "Needs Approval" is on. And this is logic. Why I (as Moderator) need to approve my own videos? Is it possible to reject it? :)

Hmmm.. I didn't know that ... it's going to be a real problem if users don't understand that their video won't appear until approved. I'll leave it with you to think about... ;)

I'm confused.. :confused:

I thought that the designated video moderator received a PM that there was a video waiting for approval? If that's not the case and it's supposed to appear under Moderation (like posts and threads), well, I can't see it under the designated moderator's area anywhere, but I'll go back and look. ;)

ok .. :)

Here's the "My Videos" screen of the user "tester" who uploaded a video that's waiting for approval, but has yet to be approved by anyone...

I don't see anywhere it shows that it's waiting for approval and won't appear until it gets approved?

Am I missing something?

Regards,
Doug

ps: By the way, what does "hide" mean and what's its purpose?

I'll check it after a short rest, but at least the code is correct. The restriction in query for what videos to show is only $userid

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

There is no other restriction like in normal listings: approved=1 AND hidden=0

Sometimes users may want to hide the video for their own reasons. Instead to delete and republish it (which means loosing all view, votes, comments), he can hide it from public view (owner and moderators can still see it with direct link), and then they can activate it again.

Seems that there is something missing from the template, and not from the code. Below the icons must be a line with the status: Active, Hidden, Awaiting Approval. So it's an easy fix.

:up::up::up:

Now, I'm still looking for where the designated moderator "approves" the uploaded video.. :D

I've checked all moderated areas, inboxes and the main Video Club page, but I see nowhere does that moderator get a message to review and click on something to approve a video.

Thanks again.. :)

I've never used that before and I can honestly say I would have never found it... :D

Why does this option not appear under the AdminCP area and for example, the options for Video Club that appear there?... or, under any of the "Moderation" approvals either in the AdminCP or on an Admin's "settings" page where they can also be approved... not important, but just curious as to the design reasoning...

Chris.. I can confirm that video review and approval, followed by a PM to the member who uploaded it, appears to work fine.. :up:

Separate thought on new features....

I can visualize a lot of members posting their videos to the wrong category....

If there could be a way for the Admin to EDIT and change the category a video was posted to, that would go a long way to help keep the Video Club library organized well. Other that that, I don't see a way of correcting mistakes like that ...

There are no hooks (places to add code) in Admincp and Modcp so the "First comes, first serves, last comes, last serves" exists :)

In my old sites I was having this page in frontend. But as most user wanted to follow vb standards, I moved it to modcp.

You still have a problem importing videos with special characters....

You fixed the one where the Youtube description had "xxxx" quotations marks around words in it, but now any description that has a ' (apostrophe) seems to break the title import.

ie: Curator's Corner: British SMLE comes out just as Curator

Now you can edit the title and description. I used vB cleaning method. Don't know why cleans double quote and not single. I'll check it, but this is the reason that I added (somehow illegaly) editing there. Also...... If you're using iso-8859-1 is better to use UTF-8. Most video providers are using this character code. All iso-xxxxx formats are outdated.

You're talking for category and nothing more. That's why I added this asap. To have full editing is not so easy. Needs a lot of php code and a new template.

Import the attached xml file. Default value is "Show" so you must edit it to NO if you want to hide the tags.

Thanks Chris.. ;)

ver. 1.3.2 released
by paradoxG(r)eek
19 Apr 2017 10:14

ver. 1.3.2 released with follow updates:
  1. Fixed all reported bugs with the most important being the missing Video Status (Active, Hidden, Awaiting Approval) in the new template style released in version 1.3
  2. Added the requested feature Edit Video. ATTENTION: There was an important reason that I haven't added this feature before. Most video providers (including YouTUBE and Vimeo) prohibits to change data to protect the copyright of the video poster. Is easily understandable that a modified title (or text) can lead to different meanings. That's why I coded it such a way to be controled by usergroup permission. So think well before giving permissions to edit.

To upgrade:
  1. Download ver. 1.3.2
  2. I suggest you to upload all files in case that I forgoten changes that I did in some files. But if you want to do a selective upload then upload the files:
    1. video.php
    2. video_usercp.php
    3. includes/xml/bitfield_videoclub.xml
  3. Import product-videoclub.xml
  4. Goto Usergroups and set the permission Edit. Default is NO.
And please rate this mod

Please how do i resolve this problem. Please check my url http://www.spyidea.com/video.php

For thumbnail I need the real video URL (eg YouTUBE) to check if it has thumbnail or not.
1.- Have you cmod 777 the directory videoclub/thumbs?
2.- When you tried to add the video did you seen any thumnail in the form?

For the video page the link is wrong. As I seen you've activated SEO urls. Have you upload htaccess.txt and then rename it to .htaccess ? Is also wise first to check something with real URLs and when you see that everything is working fine then to turn on SEO urls. So I suggest you to turn off seo urls now.

When I use direct links eg http://www.spyidea.com/video.php?do=viewvideo&id=3 the video works. So something is wrong with your htaccess file.

Naijasite 19 Apr 2017 16:21

1. The directory videoclub/thumbs and directory videoclub/thumbs are cmod 777
2. htaccess is added to my htaccess in directory
2. When adding video Thumbnail show but after adding the video it will show preview not available.
3. If i set SEO URLs Active as No, the vidoe will show but thumbnail will not show also.
After adding Video and click on save it come up with database error.

Yout user title indicates that you're a coder so you know that is not good to mix your questions with new reports but rather post one by one. Also when I'm asking something please reply to it.

I asked you the video url of the video that you tried to import. Or, if you don't want to share it, try the same link in my demo installation. This will helps me to understand if the error comes from the mod or from your settings.

If it works in my site then is something that you must check to find in your site. As long as videoclub/thumbs/ is CMOD 777 as you wrote before, check in your PHP ini if allow_url_fopen is ON. Other than this I'm not server guru.

Do you mean that the thread is created (you can see it in forumlist) but the threadid is not saving in video record?

As for htaccess seems to be ok. Try to put my rules at the top of the file.

It's 100% a server error, but who knows what exactly is :confused:
Try to CMOD back to 755 the folder videoclub/thumbs/ Some servers don't need it and instead they causes errors. Also, is there any error loged in error.log file?

So far, all functions and features of 1.3.2 seem to be working well ... :up:

Will continue testing and let you know if we come across anything...

Thanks...

Ok Doug. That redirection delay don't think that is an issue anymore as long as the Video Status appears in My Videos. Also the last uploaded video appears first so the users, even if they didn't read the message, they can find it in their list.

If redirection message is in general problematic for your members you can disable them at:
Admincp-> Settings-> Options-> Cookies and HTTP Header Options-> Remove Redirection Message Pages

In my opinion Disqus is the best choice as it has lots of social features.

Just in case that maxresdefault.jpg is big for your upload setting, upload the attached file to videoclub/includes/

It will tries to fetch the default (smaller) thumbnail

Ηι Christos, whatever I tried, I could not make this to work for me.
Always stuck at last part, when save video always get


Forbidden (error 403)
You don't have permission to access /video_usercp.phpon this server.


I checked every thing, all is as supposed to be.


Do you think that might be something from my server?, that does not let me to have access? If I be sure for this I than can speak with server support.. :)

Hi Strati,

I've 2 active demo installations and another 13 here (vB4+vB3). Nobody reported something similar. If I understood well the mod fetches the data correct (you can see them in the form) and when you click "Save", you're getting that error. Am I right?

At that point, 2 issues can be possible:
  1. Your path to thumbs is wrong at: Videoclub-> General Options-> Server Path to Thumbs (no ending slash).
  2. The php function "copy" does not works: copy(''.$videothumb.'', ''.$vbulletin->options["videoclub_serverpath"].'/tmp/'.$logo.'');

As a second thought. That "Forbidden" indicates server error. Can you please check if the file video_usercp.php is CMOD 644 ? If it is (which is the normal), try to change it to 666. Just for testing purposes. If it works then bring it back to 644 and contact your hosting provider.

If it's not 644, then change it to 644

Christos this is the problem,


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I put the id to my server as security rule and now it works. I do not know if it is ok.
I do not know if the id will change and have problem again, COMODO Firewall sees something that does not like :)

Thank you for advises

It was not 644? Strange. Normal is 644 for all files. Once, some years ago, I had a similar problem. Don't remember if it was 600 or 640 but it was not 644 so I had problems with many files. That's why it came to my mind when I read that "Forbitten".

I think that you must contact your hosting provider to get advices.

I used your API it was still same issue

I have uploaded the file to videoclub/includes/ but still showing Preview not Available.

I really which it can show the preview, because without Thumbnail preview it won't make sense.

Please Note that when adding the video the Thumbnail show but after adding the video no Thumbnail.

Please i need more troubleshooting to fix this problem.
