I have a couple of things which may or may not be bugs. JForum v2.1.7

1. I'm having problems with rankings. I created a default ranking (Love of Puzzles) which requires you only to have 0 posts, and is not special. This by default assigned to every user. I then create a Special Ranking (which by default seems to set itself at 0 posts required), called Moderator. This is automatically applied to every user replacing the existing default ranking, this is not what I expected it to do. How do I set it up so that users by default get the 0 posts ranking, and I can apply the special rankings to individual users and not have them show up on the whole General group.

2. How is the New Private Message count held? Because it seems that it is almost always on 0 new, even if there are unread ones. Is there any way of getting this out for the header without having to store it in the session (which I am assuming is why it is 0'ing), what variable should I use?

3. Sometimes I come back to the forums and posts which I have already read, and have no new posts, are marked as unread. I am still logged in as I was before.

4. For longer threads when clicking on the "last post" icon from the Forum Listing I get sent to the page before the latest post: /jforum/posts/list/100/2.page#1005 instead of http://www.welovepuzzles.com/jforum/posts/list/105/2.page#1005 because the same post is duplicated (it is the first one on the 8th page and the last one on the 7th page in this case) - when the last page gains more than one post the post is no longer duplicated.

If these have been mentioned before then I apologise. But if you explain how I can fix them that would be great Thanks.

BTW: Great forums to integrate into a site. We use them on http://www.welovepuzzles.com/jforum/ and they look lovely

PS: Looking forward to sub-forums in v3.

ok, the rank thing appears to be a bug, as other people are reporting it.

For the others, you can register Jira issues for them.

Hi,

Maybe it's tool ate but I think I've found the solution to fix the special ranking problem. Your default ranking must not require 0 posts but 1.

I hope that could help you.

p.s : I apologize for my english, I'm not english


bye
