It took me longer than expected to start working on it, but I finally did so. And the cleanup was easier than I would have thought : after just a few hours I can say that I have a beta release for iForum available that runs ImpressCMS 1.4 under PHP 7.2. If you are interested to test, the github release is here :https://github.com/iForumModule/iforum/releases/tag/v2.1-beta
I haven't touched the workings as of yet (I plan on doing that in iForum v3), simply ushered in a new era of PHP. Let me know if you find bugs on the Github issue tracker
Hi, when you logged into the sites using a chromium-based browser (Chrome, new Edge, Brave, Opera, ...) , the redirection to a logged-in page wasn't working as it should have, and you got presented a nice, clean, but utterly white page
I fixed issue #100 a few minutes ago, and backported the fix directly on this site to improve your login experience.
iForum 2 is not compatible with PHP7, on top of that. I'm not sure if it is a worthwile time investment to try to patch iForum 2, given that it uses the Art framework instead of IPF. Potentially, many issues will also be in Art.
I want to re-do iForum in IPF, but that would be iForum 3, and would be PHP7 compatible
More results - iForum 1.0 Final also requires ImpressCMS 1.3+, while iForum 1.0 RC does not.
Luckily, the sale of the .org domain was halted by ICANN, but I get your point. With all the .sale and .store and other types of TLDs (there's even a .brussels - go figure), it becomes impossible to follow.
As a matter of fact, I was hoping on someone adopting it, but there wasn't much response on the forum. I'll make some more noice on social media and the upcoming newsletter.
With all the new TLDs in the past few years, I don’t know how much of an impact the TLD has over the actual domain and content on that domain. We’ve also been faced with the shift in .org to another registrar and losing its original intent - non-commercial, non-profit organizations.
Maintaining multiple sites does come with some additional overhead. It can also lend some link authority - if the domain has a history and it’s content is deemed helpful.
If you aren’t it sure you want to hold on to it, rather than let it go, perhaps someone else would like to adopt?
that might be a good reason to renew the domain, keeping it out of harms way. The .info TLD is not that good when it comes to placement on search engines, so the impact wouldn't be that big.
I wouldn't split off the info parts for several reasons:
But I could keep the domain for some future angle
Sometimes I hold domains just so someone else doesn't grab them and turn it into something that would negatively impact the brand.
Would moving all our information (like the wiki) to the .info site make sense, or be a benefit?
Some years ago, I registered the impresscms.info domain, at the time with grand ideas of running a separate site with all kinds of information around ImpressCMS. My availabilities were not what they should have been, so I haven't been able to work out a concept for a site that would be beneficial for ImpressCMS, without cannibalising this site here.
The domain name is almost at expiration, and I'm not sure if it makes sense to renew it. If anyone has an idea and time to setup a ImpressCMS supporting site on that domain, I'm more than willing to make the domain available for that at no cost and cover the first year of renewal (and hosting, if needed).
Let me know, deadline : july 1st, 2020.
I think we introduced a new bug by updating to ImpressCMS 1.4 - the newer version of jQuery is not compatible with the version of Bootstrap used in the theme. The result is the navigation menu does not work for mobile devices, or even when you desktop browser emulates a mobile device.
We recently discovered some forum posts were displaying fine, while others were displaying the HTML tags instead of using them as markup. On further investigation, I found the individual forums were not all configured identically and some had HTML disallowed, even though the default editor is a rich-text editor.
I did update most of the top-level forums. If you find a forum that hasn't been updated and your post is not rendered properly, please let us know. Some of the old forums aren't active much, and some are not relevant because of our site consolidation (the addons site forum and the wiki forum, for example)
