Tried to create a new category on a fresh install of 2.1.6 using the default hsqldb. After bumping around in the menus for a bit... sometimes categories show up.. sometimes, if i try to add the category again, it will show up multiple times in the categories list. The missing category (in the category list) does show up when making a new forum. [originally posted on jforum.net by hanasaki]
2.1.6 is flakey that way ... right after creating a Category then go to Admin Permissions (in Group) and set the Category unrestricted so you can see it. This is fixed in 2.1.7. [originally posted on jforum.net by MyJForum]
Ok.. first off.. see my other new bug posting about a stacktrace when replying to this the first time. (first time I was not already Logged in).
What version of jforums is jforum.net currently running on?
Not to be a pain here... But... How did 2.1.6 make it out into production with these "known flacky" issues? I would prefer a Java based solution that runs on all of tomcat 5 & 6, resin and JBoss 4.0.x and 5.x
however; stability is very important and that is pushing me down the phpbb2 path. It installs with a simple apt-get in debian and ubuntu. Also on the table for consideration is Jive. Input ? [originally posted on jforum.net by hanasaki]
I'm very sorry you're getting so much problems with JForum. A lot of people don't. There is no software bug free.
Phpbb has (or had) a lot of security flaws, and Jive is not free (neither cheap).
Version 2.1.6 of JForum has some problems? yes, it does, and that's why we're here: to fix them and make it better.
I have seen JForum running on all containers you quoted, in both Windows and Linux. The sad part is that not every single OS install is equal, and there are unknown factors that may interfer on the correct software functioning.
Why don't you try the beta release of JForum? It may work for you.
I completely understand that, if JForum is not working fine in your box, you should do whatever is the best for your and your company.
