Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.7.0 beta 3 released

I just had an interesting experience with patetech.info. I noticed while upgrading to beta3 that the site was still on PHP5.6. So I went to the Dreamhost Panel and switched it to 7.2. And saw this.

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function eregi() in /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/sites/site1/admin/setup/987ve3ear56e3f6ba4c5721d403e.php(18) : eval()'d code(23) : eval()'d code:8055 Stack trace: #0 /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/sites/site1/admin/setup/987ve3ear56e3f6ba4c5721d403e.php(18) : eval()'d code(23) : eval()'d code(8074): detectBot('Mozilla/5.0 (Wi...', NULL, NULL, '', NULL, NULL) #1 /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/sites/site1/admin/setup/987ve3ear56e3f6ba4c5721d403e.php(18) : eval()'d code(23): eval() #2 /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/sites/site1/admin/setup/987ve3ear56e3f6ba4c5721d403e.php(18): eval() #3 /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/textpattern/config.php(5) : eval()'d code(2): include('/home/c6uphucr/...') #4 /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/textpattern/config.php(5): eval() #5 /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/index.php(84): include('/home/c6uphucr/...') #6 {main} thrown in /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/sites/site1/admin/setup/987ve3ear56e3f6ba4c5721d403e.php(18) : eval()'d code(23) : eval()'d code on line 8055

I thought maybe 7.2 was too bleeding edge so I switched it to 7.0. Same thing.

So I switched back to 5.6 and it is working again.

I was planning on complete redoing the site when 7.3 was released, anyway, so no big deal but I did find it odd.

Edit: I figured it out. It was a very old file from 2012 that seemed to be an related to an attempted Wordpress Hack. I deleted the entire folder and did the upgrade again.

And now have this:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_query() in /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php(1826) : eval()'d code:985 Stack trace: #0 /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php(1826) : eval()'d code(30): tru_tags_load_prefs() #1 /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php(1826): eval() #2 /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/textpattern/publish.php(196): load_plugins() #3 /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/index.php(107): include('/home/c6uphucr/...') #4 {main} thrown in /home/c6uphucr/patetech.info/textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php(1826) : eval()'d code on line 985

So here we go again.

Second Edit: I deleted tru_tags (which was active but not being used) and did the upgrade again. It works now.

Glad you got it working. The first one is a file that’s not in the Textpattern distro (probably that hack you mentioned!). The second one must be tru_tags as mysql_query() doesn’t exist in txplib_misc.txp. That problem was patched in tru_tags a while back and there have been more patches since. Whil truist hasn’t been active here much, he has been accepting and processing pull requests: the most recent version should be here.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.7.0 beta 3 released

As I just finished the Greek translation, I am wondering if we could have a link in the languages pane directed to a particular sticky thread here where people could recommend better translations. I am by no means a translator and I am deeply sceptical regarding the quality of the work I have done. I think that it will be understandable by the average users but seasoned Greek developers will probably find lots of room for improvement.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.7.0 beta 3 released

I’ve been thinking this for a while: some short paragraph on languages panel with a link to languages page on Textpattern.com. Inviting translations and improvements.

Possible?

How about a pophelp alongside the Languages heading? Minimal disruption: no need for new strings besides the pophelp text itself, and one line of code change.

Dunno. I think it needs to be more apparent, rather than buried in a pophelp. Opinions?
