Post subject: Bugs / Issues

Can you set the "Your Name:" and "Your Email:" to be non editable when members write reviews?

Reviews section title is "- Reviews", is something missing before the "-"?

"Reviews Waiting to be Published" does not keep the "Category:" selected when the review was written. It defaults to the first in the list.

"Reviews Waiting to be Published" does not keep the "Link Title:" field. This is empty even thought it was completed when the review was written.

Is it possible for the "Author:" on the review to link to the writers profile and not the email address? Perhaps linking to the email address should be for when the writer is not a member.

Can the "Related Link: " on the review open in a new window?

"Category:" link on a review is wrong. e.g.
/MReviews/op=list_revs/cid=4.html
should be
/MReviews/op=list_sub_cats/cid=4.html

The admin edit "E" link on "/MReviews/op=list_sub_cats/cid=4.html" does not work. Also "admin.php" is hard coded in the URL so will will not work if the site admin has changed the admin.php filename.

More to be added soon...
If you would like me to fix some of these bugs please let me know Smile

In the admin section "Delete Upcoming Reviews" does not delete the selected item. "Upcoming Review Created Successfully" is displayed.

The Background colour is not set on the "admin.php?op=MReviews" blocks/boxes, like in "admin.php?op=Reviews" and other sections.

Is it possible to have a "Reviews Page Description" text box like on the CPG Reviews module?

"Transfer Reviews" does not move reviews correctly.
Too long to explain, best try yourself.
Does not allow for sub-categories, or updated all cat id references.

Review notification email send review with "\r\n" instead of invisable carrage returns.

The reviews are created with <br /> as carrage returns so when editing they are diplayed in the edit textarea, however when editing say a news item in CPG they are not shown and invisable carrgage returns are used instead. Can this be changed to the same method?

I've been playing with MReviews and had much the same issues as already mentioned. I did want to add a few things.


Long reviews get cut off once they are posted. This is a big issue for me!

Search seems to be broken.

Adding reviews from the admin interface by using the Review: box doesn't work.

Modify reviews from the admin inteface using the Modify Review: box doesn't work.

Deleting reviews fromthe admin interface using the Delete Review: box doesn't work.

Can the ability for members to post comments anonymously be removed or made optional?

Print this Review from the review page always seems to go to review ID 1 and not the current review. Also Send this review suffers from the same issue.

That's all I have for the moment I'll post if I find anything else.

Thanks for all your hard work Phoenix!

Cool

The ability to post reviews is and always was optional, but the original one wasn't functional - the current one is functional, but the admin selection menu is to be made interactive with the database as it just displays standard choices, regardless of what was set in the database.

Are you using the beta version or your own? I thought most of your list were dealt with? Adminlink and redirects are yet to be fixed - was leaving that until later to avoid LEO for now.

The feedback is very much appreciated - I don't actually use the module, so it helps. I'll be working on it this weekend.

I'm using your beta version. Unless I somehow ended up with an old link. I'll hit the downloads section and update it just to be sure.

Yep I was using the beta of MReviews. The install on your site exibits the same issue with the print and e-mail links. I couln't really test any of the other issues since I'm not an admin. Cool

okay, thanks, I was sure I had fixed printer/email - must have grabbed the wrong copy when editing my end.

I have encountered a problem where MReviews cuts off the last part of my reviews. Don't know if the text inputarea has been hardcoded only to take a certain amount of characters or if the problem lies with displaying the information.

I have the cut off problem with the stock dragonfly reviews module as well.
Strange.

I think I resolved the problem by changing the MySQL database entry for all text in reviews to LONGTEXT instead of just TEXT. I will return here with more information soon.

When posting a review, the use of " cuts of my entire review after that. Thought that was important to know.

Second of all, even though I have alot of nice categories, all new reviews end up under the MAIN category, even though I add them to others. Admins can fix this, so its not a huge problem.

Changing the'TEXT' field maximum is the way to do it - if it only accepts 255 characters, which is why you get a cutoff - LONGTEXT is overkill Smile

My grand plans to work on MReviws and fix all issues over the Easter weekend came unstuck when my former host abandoned me - I've spent the last 5 days relocating over a dozen sites, so perhaps during the next week or so. In the meantime, I'm progressing a little prog called BizShop.

Is there any news on the next release?
Once the current bugs are fixed I can start adding, importing reviews, and do some fine tuning and bug testing.

I have started work on it again, and for now, I have updated the download to beta2, having addressed most of the bugs reported before. There are still formatting issues and heaps of conformance issues that I fix as I come across them.

Extra features are not a priority just yet - let's just get this version working correctly.

One thing is certain, quite a number of the original module's features couldn't have worked in the first place.
