We developed a small Patch for PortaMx v0.990 they (so we hope) fix the PortaMx / Aeva problems.
You can download the Patch in the download area (PortaMx for RC4).

Also not the topic https://www.portamx.com/topic_2096.msg12094.html#msg12094 and apply the patch they Norv have attached.

Fel,

Not clearly understood. Should we also apply Norv's patch after yours ?

The SMF patch you need only if you use SimpleSEF or other mods they manipulate the integration hooks ...

I have applied both yours and Norv's patches but still Portamx's copyright is missing on pages having embedded Youtube videos or even pictures from the gallery with smg tags

Yeah, the patch didn't help the aeva problem. If the line of code is not commented out of the aeva files you still get the white screen. If you comment the line out of the 2 aeva files the page displays but the copyright is still missing.

Browser and SMF cache cleared several times.

Ok .. more we can't do.
PortaMx use normal PHP code to apply the copyright after the SMF copyright and PortaMx use the default SMF outbuffer handling by using the integrations hooks.

Aeva modify the copyright with Javascript and simple overwrite and don't use the SMF outbuffer handling, that we can't not handle.

Summary:
If you need a ugly mod like Aeva, try a other Portal.

I find that attitude a little more than disheartening. You are looking at the wrong problem. The copyright issue is caused by people commenting out the line of code in the 2 AEVA files. It does it to any copyright that displays directly below the SMF copyright, not just to the PortaMx copyright. The real issue is the pages with embedded links display as a blank white page and it only happens if a user is using PortaMx. There are 4 other portals for SMF 2.0 RC4 and none of them exhibit this behavior and that makes one believe the problem lies with PortaMx but it appears you are too stubborn to accept this fact so indeed, I will begin converting to a different portal immediately. And that is too bad because PortaMx is a great piece of software and has the most advanced features out there but if the developer is not willing to make it work with other SMF mods then I have no choice but to move to a different portal. Thank you.

Holy crap I can't believe you just committed PortaMx suicide.

@b4pjoe
I've changed over to another portal too. It was painless and best of all like you said there are no problems. All I can say is I'm glad she said this before I sent her money.

Wow interesting response in deed.

No worries I'll gladly move to another portal... while I'll miss some of the features of PMX at least others are willing to help when there is an issue with another large (important) mod to their users.

Lets review shall we
RC2, PMX & AEVA worked just fine
RC3, PMX and AEVA works just fine
RC4... problem

Aeva copyright is still handled the same way it was in RC3 and RC2

This issue doesnt exist with other portals or the few other mods "I" have that adds a copyright.

Something that seems it could be resolved between 2 programmers just having a discussion turns in to one ridiculing the other's work.

Anywho... off to decide which portal I can live with (starting to regret that little donation(charter membership) to show my appreciation for your work).

The code of PortaMx is not changed between 0.980 for RC3 and 0.990 for RC4. We have only make the necessary changes on the templates. Not more .. not less.

There use to be an option to move the copyright to the SMF copyright in 0.980 that option was removed... so yes I would say there was a change, might not have been a significant change, maybe it didnt require much code change but its a change nonetheless.

Also another change in code is that when a member logs in they are redirected to the forum page and not the home page like before.
And then there's the issue that when you click on the 'new' icon you are no longer taken to the new item posted. You go to the top of the thread instead.

Much agreed.

Fel your attitude has moved from supporting to defending and it doesnt seem good from this point of view.

There are obviously some problems with new version which didnt exist previously but instead of you trying to find a solution you just say there is no problem / change and accuse users or others which I believe will cause you loose some users but I dont think you care much about it.

Look, I said I would rather not switch portal software. The fact is that AEVA 1.4b works fine with every other portal software out there. PortaMx displays a blank white page from any page that contains an embedded link and ONLY PortaMx does this. Forget the copyright issue. If the white screen page issue is solved it will fix the copyright issue. The copyright issue is being caused by the hack used to make PortaMx display the pages with the embedded links.

Think of it this way. If PortaMx worked fine on 4 out 5 different gallery mods most people would believe the problem was with the one gallery mod that PortaMx didn't work on. Same deal here. AEVA works fine on four out five portal mods. The only one it doesn't work with is PortaMx.

No one is attacking your software or your PortaMx Corporation. People do want to use your software but you are forcing them not to. It's frustrating dealing with you.

Please read this fel...

https://www.portamx.com/topic_2118.msg12141.html#msg12141

PortaMx v0.980-1 was working fine with AEVA 1.3a and now using PortaMx v0.990 with AEVA 1.3a is causing the white screen issue. Same AEVA softare that was working with the earlier version of PortaMx.

Hmm,
maybe we should looking for an alternative for AEVA  instead ?


As Nao is not willing or has no time to fully bugfix his 2.04 version for RC4 and is only working on his fork,
I wonder, if there is any other MOD that can just show YOUTUBE videos inside a posting ?

Also I wonder, if I could use a different gallery MOD, as the way AEVA does a few things I did not like about
and would need to modify it and Nao does not help or does not want to
do a template change for the AEVA template  and I am too stupid to do it myself...

I even offered money to do it, but nobody would help me...

I am wondering, if I could use a different gallery MOD that is more like
NextgenGallery on Wordpress, which is really great...
but there is not yet a really cool looking gallery mod for SMF in my opinion...
e.g. with a FASH slidéshow feature or something like this..


If anybody knows something better, or knows a different youtube plugin mod,
please let me know.

I will not change from PortaMX, cause also soon there will be the new version out
and rather I will wait to update my big forums than now try MODs,
that are not yet bugfixed...

AEVA 2.04 was written, before SMF 2.0RC4 came out and Nao said,
that there are many changes, so probably there are still bugs with it...


And his new Fork will also not be out until SMF 2.0 Gold, so this could
even take a few more months....and the fork will not run with
any other nonadapted MODs, so we are probably really a year away
before you could even get the same functions we use now
with additional Mods with RC4 as with the upcoming fork...

Regards, Stefan.
