    XF 2.1 2.1.2 upgrade now having wierd HTML issues...

    Ah, thanks for the hint. It seems to be something with regard to "ModPageSpeed." I've disabled it for now and will look further. Thanks.

    XF 2.1 2.1.2 upgrade now having wierd HTML issues...

    The code is emitting erroneous stuff at times. I can't put my finger on it directly because it periodically fails and then if I breath on the system (like twiddle some template mods on and off), it goes away. The essence is that when it puts out the url for css.php, it follows it with not ...

    XF 2.0 Re-Installing Xenforo

    You need to make sure you retain the stuff in data (attachments, avatars). You can back up the database or just rename it or use a different one on your new installation. You can then import from the old db to the new db once you create the new forums.

    XF 2.1 Change Field ID of a custom user field

    You might be better off creating a new field with a different id and writing a script to copy the data values over. If you want to try, you have the user_field table PLUS all the values in the user_field_values table that match. You also need to go over to the phrase_map table and change the...

    XF 2.1 How to iterate over the entire user table?

    Yeah, but it's constrained by a lot more parameters due to the fact that some of the groups require compliance with the non-profit membership standards. But the question is really independent of the motives.

    XF 2.1 How to iterate over the entire user table?

    I need to periodically iterate over the entire user table to do some auto-promoting (we twiddle the users group based on post count, days active, etc..). I was trying to do this by getting an array of user id's and then using the finder to pull up each one in sequence and then save it...

    XF 2.1 Emacs turds screw up callbacks

    Ack, it's not XF, it's PHP. Apparently, it indexes these files as well.

    XF 2.1 Emacs turds screw up callbacks

    I don't know where the problem lies (whether it's something in XF itself or in PHP and haven't cared to investigate it further), but I was having a devil of a time setting a callback in the ACP (in this case it was a Cron callback, but I don't think it is limited to this). It just refused to...

    XF 1.5 illegal mix of collations during import from vBulletin

    The above didn't work for me, but it seems to only be one or two tags and I was willing to lose them so I just wrapped the whole thing in a try/catch and let it go on.

    MG 1.1 Importing from remote machine

    I'm in the middle of converting a rather heavily modified vB site to xF. We have all our images in PhotoPost. Now XMG "claims" to import PhotoPost but after a day of running, it results in a lot of categories loaded up but no images. Obviously, on examination the problem is that while...
