Uh, a URL to the problem itself please; seeing your board doesn't help much.

zParaduck, it will work if you have the code buttons mod installed. I had the blank page too until I installed UBBCodeButtons 3. You might as well just install it. It's a great mod anyways. [Linked Image]

CGI ERROR
==========================================
Script Location : xxxxxxxxcgi-binforumprivatesend.cgi
Perl Version : 5.00503

I'm getting this error after I click Send Private Message.

I've tried to install the hacks on with Avatar, custom status ,starhack, UBBCode v3.5...still got the same error.

Updated the files with the latest Private Msg files..still the same.

Confirmed working for me too.

All 3 fixes worked on my privatesend & privatedelete files as well! Looks like mainly table cleanup and layout (and new features) is up next? [Linked Image]

Yay! The next feature (UBB Instant messages) is working! After some bugfixing, I hope to have it ready for downloading by tonight!

Oh damn! That sounds freaking awsome! Will the instant messaging be an upgrade on top of PMv3 or will it be a totally new version of PM?

Latest files (with all 3 bug fixes) are in our database now for download.

There's still a table layout problem in the outbox, if you have sent messages. The delete checkbox is in the upper left instead of the lower right under the "delete" column. And there's one checkbox for each pm in the outbox. The check boxes still work as they should, so it seems like it's just a table layout problem.

That "admin delete" for inactive/ banned users would be cool...

Outlaw, do you have ubb codebuttons 3.5 installed? If you have v3, just upload the .pl file that comes with 3.5...

"do you have ubb codebuttons 3.5 installed? "

No I don't and have looked for it but could not find it. However, I am not sure I want that hack. I just want my PM working again...

BTW, I upgraded just before I posted the messege above, so when exactly were the files put up? I upgraded 30 minutes before this post...

What's with the "codebuttons 3.5" requirement anyway? That is pretty lame and like I said, it would not go well with our board.

Also, the new files do not include any Installation instructions [I don't need them but newbies might] and most of the files still say PM2 in the info...FYI

Ok, redownloaded, and its back up and working, but its back the way 2.2 was, nothing new. Is it still version 3.0???

Anyway, I wana thank you for your very quick response and help. You guys are awsome. I wish u guys would write your own UBB version, cause I rather pay you guys since you are the only ones with REAL Features and REAL support...

Woohoo! UBBIM (UBB Instant Messages) v 1.0 is fully operational at www.planetcommunity.com !!

It needs 3 mods to be installed:
CYMPM 3.5 (documenting right now)
Who's online? 3+ (available for download)
I'm online! 2.0 (documenting right now)

Before I release it to the public, I want to get it going here at UBBDev first... Allen, please email/ICQ (preferably) me when you get online. [Linked Image]

What other problems is everyone having with CYMPMs?

I was having a problem with the system when I tried to send PMs to people with spaces in their usernames.

There was a line in the privatesend.cgi file that said something like :$to =~ s/ //ig;

I took out that line because it took out the spaces in the $to variable but you need the spaces in there in order for it to open the right $to.db file. With that line in there, if I sent a PM to Rattler 1, Ratter1 would get the message not Rattler 1. You might have fixed that after I downloaded the files.

Also, what about the cookies? They seem to be automatically stored even if I have NameStorage set to "no" in my preferences.

PM 3.x has bugs, as of this morning.
I reinstalled it this morning and I don't see any difference/changes between it and 2.2.

That's why it is in the "beta" forum... there's no guarantee that it will work... I can tell you that it works on here, and that I did nothing different from the instructions found with the download to install it, mainly cuz I was the one who redocumented the install instructions.

Eskimo, you are getting the same error that many others have gotten, only to find out it was because of an install error. Please look over your instructions, paying special attention to the ones at the top of private.cfg. If you do not follow those instructions, it is guaranteed to have problems.

Rattler, we used to have those problems, but haven't since the bug was fixed waaaay back on page 4 of this thread. If you are using the latest downloads within the last few days, you shouldn't be having that problem...

If we have time, we'll install the new features tonight. After it appears to be fairly stable, we'll post for download...

Allen,

I just downloaded the files again and installed them and once again, I can't send messages to people with a space in their usernames like "Rattler 1".

Then when I commented out this line:
Code
code:
it worked fine.

Also, the cookies remain set even after I close the browser. I already deleted all the cookies manually and tried again and it still stores them.

He is working on the cookies Rattler, I really don't know about the other + stuff... we aren't having problems with it here...

I fixed the table layout in privateview.cgi for the delete checkbox in the outbox. If you want the revised file, I just now uploaded it to the zip file in the database. Check the pm's on here to verify the fix... just upload that one file in ascii for the table fix.

I wasn't able to get Borg's files for the update here on the site, so we'll put them up tomorrow...

Just tested with a user name with spaces, you are correct Rattler, let me see if I can find a fix... right now when you send it to someone with spaces in their name, it sucks out the spaces and tries to send it to the same name, only with no spaces (just like you said).

Give me a few, I will try to find a fix...

It's that line I mentioned earlier in privatesend.cgi in the send subroutine:
$to =~ s/ //g;

It shouldn't be there. I think.

OK, that was simple enough...[Linked Image]

## FIND: (in privatesend.cgi)

$to =~ s/ //g;

## REPLACE WITH:

$to =~ s/+/ /g;

It seems to have fixed it on here... once again, I have uploaded the files with the fixes in place to the database... let me know if it doesn't do the trick for you Rattler.

Allen,

Do you have any idea what this line is for or doing:
print "";

It puts body tags in the middle of tables and stuff.

1. recheck your coding in Ultimate.cgi, there's a problem there.

2. recheck your coding in ubb_library2.pl, there's a problem there as well...

Just a note to say that the new version of files Allen recently uploaded work fine on a heavily hacked site. The only rogue item was the "Hop To" box (not really for my site, but nice). I fixed that little bit as well as slimmed down the "Check All" and "Uncheck All" images and putting two spaces between them. I can also confirm the errant "tick box" is gone in the Outbox too. Great job guys, and so fast!!!! Many thanks!


PS I just tried to use spellcheck here and after clicking on "Finish" I got a CGI error.

"Borg's "I'm online" will be part of this "

Does this mean the new PM3.0 will have this built in or do we have to add it. If built in, will there be new instructions for UPGRADING?

OK... we are beta testing the "I'm online" portion... a few small bugs, but it looks like it is working well...

Post any bugs you see here...

1. - pop-up isn't quite tall enough for info inside, need to adjust one or the other.

2. - image in pop-up is looking for images in ubb cgi directory... I placed them in there as well just for testing purposes...

3. - pop-up should take on ubb's colors a little better

4. - need to rename online.gif to something else, it replaced the online.gif for the "who's online" section in Ultimate.cgi

5. - nothing else that I can see... nice work Borg [Linked Image]

Ok, question. I have the PM 2.2 installed. Can I just download and replace the existing files without doing anything else (other than setting path to perl) and have it working right away?
