    SEAddons Advanced Forum
    I have many SEAddons plugins and they are all excellent.

    My only comment is that the Advanced Forum changes the sequence of the forum posts so that the newest replies in a thread is at the top when all other stand alone forums like Invision have the replies to post going from oldest at the top to newest at the bottom.

    This make the Advanced forum seem upside down, is there any way to keep the sequence the same as all the other forum software?

      Jay The problem is that many of the people I am targeting to join already use forums like Invision so it will appear backwards for them.

      gs I have this Plugin too and I actually prefer this (at times) since it's more like an activity feed. Have you contacted SEAO?

      What I really with SE and 3rd-Party Devs would implement is the 7 sort options github uses - I regularly switch between these sorts. Very, very useful.

    Static File Base URL Setting

    There is a setting in admincp that I am a bit curious about how it really works. It is called static file base url and is avaliable in the General Setting Area.

    This setting says that is to be used to provide javascript and css files through a CDN. However this seems not be completly clear:

    I- A link to a tutorial point to a amazon s3 storage tutorial (http://support.socialengine.com/php/customer/portal/articles/1636682-how-to-use-the-cdn-storage-feature#maxcdn) however until where I know the Social Engine storage integration with amazon doesnt provide a way to upload javascripts and CSS files.

    II- There is a link that point to maxcdn. So I ask, there is necessity to use two differents services do CDN? One to provide files through amazon and js and css through max cdn?

      Donna If you don't want to have both, you don't have to. You could just use the amazon for the user file storage.

      You could try cloudflare for speeding the site static files. I use it on mine. I haven't tried the extra caching as it could cause issues with other functions. Might be worth testing. Cloudflare is free.

    Social Engine Seems not sending information to Redis

    I decided to give a try to redis trying to reduce my page loading time. Everything seems to be working fine, Redis is installed, Social Engine configured to run using Redis, except by the fact that when I look in the Redis Monitor there is no message of information be served by him.

    In general when Redis is working if you reload a page, some get command will appear in the redis monitor, but my case I only see "SELECT" "0".

    Someone already had any experience with this?

      Gabry Hello , before checking with monitor , flush your redis cache redis-cli FLUSHALL ... then command redis-cli MONITOR to see if redis works or not ... for me is working good , i can see activity from website in real time ... remember to close monitor after this as is eating a lot of resources.PS: remember also to start or restart your redis server , maybe is not working that;s way you can;t see anything.

      cumds Thank
      I sent the host company

      And informed them of the problem and there is a problem with the server and the lack of operation of the server and reorganization

      They told me that the problem was the program

      Knowing that the site was excellent there were no problems and after updating to the last one I encountered the problem

      And also after uploading the version of php on the server

      cumds Can you explain more to me and how to work so that I own a didecate

      Donna You will want your host to enable mysqli. Most hosts already have that. The host I use is set up for SE sites and works great in php7 as well. I use cazaratech.com .

    SE News Loading-Performance
    Hello,i have a small notice about the SE News that appear on admin panel home page ... sometimes those news don't appear is just a blank space instead of news, but the problem is in that moment the site loading time increase until the news appears again (maybe blank because of some SE maintenance) ... is there any way to avoid this ? Is not happening too often but as it has a connection one with each other, can this news loading slow down a little the website performance ? How is the system working ? Is checking from time to time for news or is refreshing and displaying them only when you access the page ?

      Donna Yes, we are aware of this. I had added this issue to our list before but then it stopped and couldn't be reproduced again until now. It is the RSS feed for our blog. When it's down, it can't grab the feed. I've added to our bug report that it's still active. It only has an issue if our site blog goes down. We are rectifying that as well. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Users Login With My Account
    This is a pretty weird a serious problem that already happened with me and now after upgrade to 4.9.2 started to occur again.

    Sometimes users relate that they login as my user when using the website. The system become a few slow when they refresh their pages, my avatar appear instead of their avatar. 

    This seems to happen only when I am logged in also and yesterday this happened between me and one of my administrators. I really dont know how to track this issue, since after a refresh everything return to normal. I really need a help since this is serious risk for my website and community.

      Gabry Hi, well this is just an idea , i don't know if is really from here but it comes in my mind ... what kind of cache are you using ? If you use a custom cache and not file based , try to use for some time the file based , maybe is a fault from the cache that you use now and the website is serving the cached files in a bad way.
      Second, if you are on a VPS with WHM/Cpanel, try some 3'rd plugins for verify if your system is vulnerable to viruses or some kind of injections, attacks or scan your system files to see if is clean.
      I am thinking that you said it happen also in the past and now after upgrade started again ...and as nobody else reported this kind of problem maybe is coming from your settings in hosting and not from SE script.
      The same if you have WHM/Cpanel try to check if your SQL server has some problems and also Optimize the tables for your SE database with phpMyAdmin if you have access.
      Can you give us your website for visit ?

      Donna Do you have any integrations on the site or any sign on customizations?

      Do you use the "log in as user" feature and are the users that are able to log in as your user the same ones you may have logged in as?

      Are these users able to access the admin panel?

      Did you contact our support to check this?

    Display Total Membership Users

    I am trying to raise funds for my community using the membership system from Social Engine and I would like to display to my users the quantity of active memberships and the total raised the month. There is some way to create a widget for this purpose?

      Eugene This is a really good question.

      We have created different stats pages for few clients to track activity. What exactly do you want to track (posts, comments, likes, friendship requests, etc.)?

    Login with facebook, twitter etc
    Hi All

    Im maybe embracing login with facebook  and twitter.

    I know this will add more to my terms and conditions.

    But i wondered if anyone knew of advantages, or what it gives you.

    I deal with marketing on a clothing brand which heavily relys on facebook pixel.
    Facebook pixel does awesome for me with facebook analytics and targeting for campaigns.

    I wondered does login with facebook give tthe same?

    If someone signsup with facebook can i see their facebook page?
    Does it collect info good for facebook analytics?

    or is it as simple as just fetching their email, name, dob?

    About social engine database
    Is there any detailed guide about the tables created by social engine? I am looking for the detailed information for each action of social engine what data is written to which tables.
      • 1
      Donna This tutorial, http://support.socialengine.com/php/customer/en/portal/articles/2121821-how-to-remove-delete-a-plugin-from-your-website?b_id=14386 , mentions where to find the database files. That would probably be the best place to look for information as to what tables are made. We don't have a tutorial that shows everything done but the files will be a key to much of the information you need.
