One thing I've noticed about the Tag Cloud .. it only seems to show keywords that anyone can see, it doesn't take into account words that are added into an area that are protected by forum permissions. Any chance this could be changed?

It's weird.
I'm at a loss with this. I set up a board using your Chinese translation, created various new entries to get threads created and tried adding comments.

a) the standard process with 2.2.8 code worked fine
b) when I tried killing the linkthread value, the standard release code did not work, for reasons I understand, but the simplified regular expression worked just fine.

I saw that you've modified the ldm_thread_create_relink message, which is what is generated/tested. In your version, there are extra bbcodes inside the thread bbcode, but even so, the following code:


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

picks up the threadid fine.

This isn't how it works, unless I'm missing something. Depending on whether you're weighting by hits or just frequency of use, keywords will only be displayed a) if they are used or b) if they've actually been hit.

Yeah .. but could forum permissions be taken into account?

At the moment, a normal register user could see a tag word in the cloud that when clicked takes him to a blank search page as all the items using that tag word are hidden from him as he doesn't have the permission to see that forum which those items are linked to.

See what I mean?

It's something to do at some time, but it hadn't been given a very high priority. I'm gradually trying to make things more friendly in these ways, without breaking anything.

Thanks.

I would like to request the option to handle comments with a vbulletin thread. I prefer this above auto thread creation, because auto thread creation means duplication of the discussion.

Hi Andrew,

when i have a link like http://rapidshare.de/afile_name.mp3 the system tries to play the link with the mediaplayer. But this is the rapidshare url. Is there an option to turn the mediaplayer off for external links?

It's provided in the 'extras' directory - have you installed it and read the 'readme' file?

We avg 50,000 downloads per month and the table... local_links_downloads eventually grew to over 700,000 rows. Which cause huge CPU spikes on our MYSQL server.

After truncating the local_links_downloads table. The CPU spike were gone (after 3 month of trying to find this worsening problem).

So my question, is there anyway to set an auto cut off for the stats to stop incrementing?

Or this means every few months we have to manually truncate the table. Can Links and Downloads Manager be set to only keep say the last 30 days of download stats?

Thanks very much for any support you can provide.

Go to LDM/admin/settings and set prune_downloadtable to the number of days you want to keep, e.g. 30. Note that detailed usage statistics are only available for those days where the downloads table is populated, but the overall statistics (total hits on entries) are retained when the table is pruned. Hope this helps.
