      Donna The SocialEngine Hosted version is the Iframely hosted by SE for licensed clients. :) We did this for clients that might not want to use the paid Iframely or on their own servers. Hope you enjoy it! :)

    Website Name After Page Description?
    I can be wrong, but I remember that until version 4.8.13 website name was before the page title, but now seems that the opposite is happening.

    In other words instead of sitename - page name description the website is displayed as page name description - sitename. Is this correct?

    Iframely Options
    Hello,

    I am testing the version 4.9 and I confess that in despite of price to use the iframely api, I could understand the difference between the Social Engine Api and Host a Api. The Social Engine Hosted Api use Iframely or it use the old version from SE?

    Ads Issue solved in 4.9?
    Hello,

    I reported a issue some months ago related with the ads plugin that I think that was included in 4.9, but I cant confirm now.

    When you create a ads campaign and add different ads inside the system try to display all ads equally, so the total number is the same.

    However if you has a ads with a high number of views and add a new, this new ads will be displayed until it has the same number that the older, what is pretty weird.

    I remember to have reported this issue before in github, but can find now. Anyone know if this issue continue in 4.9?

      Donna I can't find the bug report. If you created one, it should be in your profile at Github. I've not tried this yet to test (the ad issue you mention). Having a link to that bug report would be great if you can find it. :)

    How to serve Login Pages with HTTPS?
    Chrome and Mozilla started a few ago a new procedure that mark some pages that has information like credit card number or password as insecure.

    https://www.wordfence.com/blog/2017/01/chrome-56-ssl-https-wordpress/

    This will make in essence any pop-up login form useless when loaded in a non-secure https page and considering that is impossible in a Social Network force every external source to load using HTTPs this represent a big new challenge.

    Some of my pages started to display a insecure tag this week and my users started to ask why this is happening. I remember that phpfox has a feature that allow certain pages with senstive data like admincp, the login page and profile management to be loaded using https, so I would like to ask how can we implement something similar to Social Engine?

    I am trying to solve this using a rewrite rule, but was unable to solve until know.

      Donna My host just changed my author site to https and it works fine. The only thing I've not done is the redirect for those that might come from the http. http://support.socialengine.com/php/customer/en/portal/articles/2036045-how-to-protect-your-site-using-ssl-and-https?b_id=14386 please see if that tutorial helps.

      Donna I'll have to update that tutorial. For enabling this, which I just did for my site, instead of /application folder, change the .htaccess in the main folder wherever you have SocialEngine installed such as public_html if you don't have it in a subfolder.

    Cache and Maintenance Mode Error
    Hello,

    I am facing a weird issue that started in the last week. I am unable to set my website in development mode using the "normal" process of click in the button in the admincp. When I click nothing happens like if the button is now working, but what is more strange is that the cache setting is displaying information from all cache option take a looking in the following screenshot:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1Vh7_gHrCMHT1Z1Qm0teVBGTjg/view?usp=drivesdk

    The normal is that the option of memcache, by example, only appear if the radio button is clicked but it displaying with even when file is enable. Someone already had this issue? I already deactivated all plugin and this issue still happening.

    Thanks
      • 1
      Donna Are you able to manually set it to development mode? I see the flush cache setting is not showing for you. Did you have it set to memcache before? Did you try manually clearing cache?

    How to Clean Private Messages?
    Hello,

    There is some way to delete private messages without use the database?

    The cometchat did a huge mess in my website due the enconding charset and now there is several "junk" messages in the private messages from SE.
      • 1
      Donna This would be a great feature request. This should be able to be added to the task scheduler on a set schedule but it could cause users to lose messages they wanted to save.

    Big and Professional Websites that use Social Engine
    Hello,

    I was browsing the new marketplace and noticed that there are some showcases in some third party developers profiles.

    As I am curious I visited some of these websites and most seems not to be much active or have a professional look, what is a bit ironic because if you are displaying a website in your portfolio is because you believe that is a impressive work.

    So I would like to ask if anyone knows a really big website that use Social Engine? I am really curious to see what a well stablished Social Engine website can do.

    Note: To my surprise my site is in the portfolio of one of the developers :D

      PoeticJustice I use my social engine completely different to how others use it.
      Users log on daily, loads concurrent users.

      Its all about staggering functions such as plugins, you need to drip feed to keep members interested.

      Then focus and advertise about being a social network once you have over 250 members.

      I have quiet alot of members, but the site is not really open to anyone.

      But i would not personally showcase, nor do i expect big sites using SE to showcase.

    How to make a activity not be commentable
    Hello,

    I have a facing a design problem that I would like to share with the community.

    By default all activities in the feed can be liked, commented and shared, but some activities doesnt make sense to be commented by example.

    Just to ilustrate lets take the create topic and reply topic as a example. When someone create or reply a topic in forum a activity is created with "someone create a new topic". Considering that the objetive of a topic is to structure the discussion in the forum doesnt make sense people be allowed to comment in this type of content.

    I noticed that there is a column in the database called "comment" but when i change this value to anything different from the default the Social Engine hide not only the comment button, but also the like button.

    There is any way to hide only the comment button in these situations?

      Donna Made some progress. Now, if someone comments on a forum item in the feed, it shows a default error but that's not ideal as it could confuse them.
      • 1
      Donna I'll have to test further as the default settings for Activity Feed Item Type Settings are for the forum creation not to post to the main feed. Unless you mean on the profile feed too.

    Any Store Plugin with Watermark for Digital Products?
    Hello,

    I am looking for a store plugin to create a are and sell PDFs however both plugins that are avaliables in the marketplace (one from SEAO e another from Hire-Experts) doesnt have a  feature to "watermark" this type of files.

    The watermark is important to help me to block users that are distributing pirated products. I know that this is not a simple fight, but I need to offer at least this feature to other publisher be interested in to sell products.

     Someone know another store plugin that has this type of feature?

    Thanks,
      • 1
      Donna I should have searched the marketplace first. I see there is one that has this feature already, https://www.socialengine.com/marketplace/app/advanced-photos-albums-plugin .
      • 1
      Donna This would be a great feature for one of them to include. Were they not interested in adding it to their product? I think it would help them sell.

    Where Profile Privacy is Stored?
    Hello,

    I need to mass update the profile privacy from my users however I couldnt identify where this information is stored.

    The information in question is avaliable in the admincp in this area: admin/authorization/level/edit/id/x

    There are two options one related with privacy view (who can see the profile) and other about who can comment the profile. I need to make a update to change this setting to all existing profiles however I couldnt figure out what table store this information.

    Thanks

      Donna Hi Leandro,

      Check the table engine4_authorization_permissions for Type = user and Name = auth_view and auth_comment for the member level ID that you want to change.

    Younetco Wiki - A example of bad third party development standard
    I already opened a discussion about the lack of development standards among SE developers. Recently I brought the Younetco wiki a plugin that costs USD 89 and to my surprise the plugin is missing several things. Just to start the plugin doesn't have support to description in the activity feed, so when you create a Wiki in the feed only the title and the image appear. This doesn't make any sense.

    Beyond this the layout of the plugin is completly different what make CSS rules from default themes from SE can't work fine.

      Gabry I also had bad business with this guy's.The worst thing that they make is that they launch for example the plugin "Music" and after 3 months they don't update it anymore and they launch another music plugin called "Advanced music" and so one ..so we are forced to buy the next plugin as they don't update anymore the first one. Why they don't transform the first "Music" plugin in "Advanced music" so the customers that bought it to be able to continue using it or at least give it for free to the customers that bought the first "Music" plugin as an update. That means they want only money and not care about customers.

      Donna Hi [862,Leandro Rocha],

      Thank you for your post and thoughtful feedback.

      We understand your concerns regarding YouNet as they were part of our marketplace in the past. During the expert approval process for our new marketplace, several factors were weighed. In regards to this developer, a decision not to approve their Expert profile was made based on client feedback and other concerns.

      Some of you may also be aware of posts in various forums regarding YouNet owning or partnering with one of our competitors. As we were able to confirm such associations, we felt it contrary to SocialEngine interests to have a direct competitor as an Expert in our marketplace.

    Why Sometimes Share a Link Dont Fetch a Image?
    Hello,

    I already noticed this happening, however I couldnt figure out why sometimes the activity feed doesnt fetch a image.

    Lets use this link as an example:

    https://www.catarse.me/rastro_de_cthulhu?ref=home_score&project_id=33931&project_user_id=530177

    I shared this link in my website and no thumbnail was generated. I thought that this was caused due small images in the link destiny, however if you visit the link above you will see that there are several images.

    So I am curious about why sometimes the system doesnt fetch any image. I shared the same link in the facebook and the system fetched a image.
      • 1
      Donna I have had this same issue in other scripts. I believe it was due to the og: image on the site being shared but it's been a while since I've looked into it.

    Update Plugin Process
    Hello,

    Today I noticed a small problem that can explain some issues that my website have.

    Two months ago I opened a support ticket for a developer to fix a problem. The developer fixed the issue and several other updates were launched and I update in my website using the developer core plugin (note below). Today I decided to reupload the plugin and during the installation process, the system identified differences between my system files and the uploaded files.

    To my surprise the difference include the fix of my plugin (in thesis the developer fixed in my website and never included in their package), but the big point is that since I updated previsously the plugin this fix should be overwrited before.

    The developer core plugin has a routine that directly install the last version without the necessity of download and upload. I am thinking that maybe the developer plugin is ignoring when it notice a difference between files. Someone already had a similar experience?
