Among the fixes are:

  • Itemid added to all links to make sure the correct menu item is used when checking for authentication. No more problems with "you are not authorized to view this resource. Please login" error message hopefully.
  • The cleanup of menu items and content items when uninstalling is better.
  • Fixed the "Show all blog entries" link on the main Mamblog page.
  • Changed all frontend links to use SEF links.
  • Changed wording from "frontpage" to "main Mamblog page" to avoid confusion.
  • Updated the Swedish language file.

New features:

  • Supports popup window functionality of AkoComment
  • Mamblog doesn't require the name of the content section to be "Mamblog" anymore.
  • New functionality: Show my archive, to show the archive of the current logged in user.
  • Entry length restriction in lists, it is now possible to restrict how many characters of entries to show in the lists via a new configuration option.
  • Internal viewing of a single blog entry, no longer any need to use Mambos content viewing.

" You can just remove the entire function mosparseparams( ) in the file mentioned and that error will go away. "

Could you elaborate on this, I'm getting this same Error?

Maybe you could raise the auto increment counter on the web site by entering a row with a very high ID, like 10000. Then all entries added on the site should have ID values that wouldn't clash with the low numbers you use on you site at home. Unless you think you'll add more than 10000 content items.

I'm on a dial up service and writing content online is entirely out of the question. I pay per minute in the region of 5-6 US cent. Writing content online would boost my monthly fees by 100-150 USD.

That is precisely why I discover that offering Mamblogs maybe wasn't such a good idea at all, even though my users love it.

I'd prefer support questions in the Support Forum really, as it will be much easier to keep track of and for others to find information as well.

Dumping specific rows from the database should be possible with your backup program but since it's different in every program I can't do much more than refer you to the documentation of the program you use.

But I don't think it is wise to add content locally while other content is added on the site. You might end up having conflicting rows in your content table which could really mess things up.

Oh and thanks for the quick answer of course! :D
0 #21 Guest 2005-01-17 12:41
I usually back up with DBadmin, having little knowledge about PHPMyadmin.

I haven't so far succeeded in "dumping" just those rows in a manner which allows me an easy insertion into the localhost content table. Probably I didn't choose correct format and parameters for that dump? What would those be?

Having the mamblog entries mixed together with normal content is - ahemm - then a pain in the behind, when you constantly work on content other than mamblog, while your users constantly work on their blogs. It would really be a major improvement to separate general content from mamblog in my book.
0 #20 Gardener 2005-01-17 10:19
All content is stored in the mos_content database table so if you back that up you will save all blog entries as well. If you want only the entries in one file you need to dump only the rows with the correct category id (which you will find in the configuration file).

I have been thinking of separating the entries into a table of it's own for a future version, but I haven't decided upon it yet. Keeping the entries in the normal content has been more of a hassle than it's worth. The reason I did it that way is because I wanted users to be able to use standard modules and stuff like that to show them in different ways. As well as not having to write a backend for administering the entries.

How is Mamblog backed up? The mamblogs of the live site are daily being written to, while I also work on the core content on MSAS on localhost. Hence I need to back up the Mamblog content separately from general content. Which areas exactly do I need to back up and how do I do that (step by step)?

Any plans to separate table in the future, so that Mamblog uses its own tables? Would be HIGHLY welcome.

I see a Fatal error: Cannot redeclare mosparseparams( )

You are using Mamblog with Mambo 4.5.1, which isn't supported. You can just remove the entire function mosparseparams( ) in the file mentioned and that error will go away.
There might be other problems though, but I don't know for sure since I haven't tested it with Mambo 4.5.1 myself.

Mac problem
OK, I'll get soimething like that added in. But I can't for the life of me understand why they don't fix this in the Mac browsers, no matter what they use internally if they want to be compatible with the rest of the world it would be an easy thing to change.

Deleting images
You will have to remove the option from the html editor, I can't do that in Mamblog. Please refer to the documentation or the support site of the html editors for more information.

RSS feed from MamBlog
Well, there is a module in Mambo that can produce RSS feeds. This module works for the Mamblog entries as well, as they are saved as standard Mambo content. Please refer to the Mambo documentation for more information on this.

Mambo 4.5.1a
No, Mamblog hasn't been tested with Mambo 4.5.1 and there are some known problems. The next relase will fix these problems, but I'm not sure when that will be out.
There are reports of people using Mamblog with Mambo 4.5.1 though, so it is possible to use it, albeit with some minor problems.

at configuration/Viewing setting, any know why? (using Version: 1.0 RC2)
0 #16 Guest 2004-12-24 18:44
I suspect the problem mac users are having is related to the way line breaks are coded by Macs. DOS/Windows machines use Carriage Return Line Feed (CRLF) represented in regexs as \r\n. POSIX systems use LF(\n) only and still read the windows breaks by ignoring the \r. MacOS uses only CR(\r) so your POSIX based server(UNIX, Linux, Solaris,...) never sees the '\n' it's looking for and you have no line breaks.
Here's the Perl code to fix it. Should be easy to PHPize.
$line ~= s/\015\012/\012/g;
$line ~= s/\015/\012/g;

that safari isn't compatible with Mamblog when they want to write a blog entry. anyone else hearing the same rumblings? i am using it with mambo 4.5.1
0 #14 Guest 2004-11-13 18:29
Is it possible to configure it so users cant add images from the server, cause they can delete all of them, for instance when using htmlarea2 or 3 xtd they have access to the server...
0 #13 Guest 2004-11-09 11:15
Can u elaborate on what u mean by:

"RSS feeds should work with the standard Mambo RSS content feed module. "

I have been struggling to create an RSS feed from an individual MamBlog but could not manage to do it. I am on 4.5.1a

For the moment I am manually creating the XML file and sharing it :sigh:. Your response would be a big help.
