Osclass 3.2 RC - feel like helping?
« on: July 16, 2013, 07:34:41 pm »
As promised some time ago, we have Osclass 3.2 release candidate ready for download. IMPORTANT! Please bear in mind that we've eliminated many hooks and some of the plugins/themes may not work correctly or stop working at all for the moment (you can find the list of all plugins here). As always, we don’t recommend you to run the installation on a production website to test it, once we make sure there are no bugs the new official version will be released in the following days.

Osclass 3.2 RC highlights:
  • Expiration date for a listing (till now you can do that only for the whole category)
  • Advertising by regions (region1.osclass.org/region2.osclass.org)
  • Custom searchable fields (you will be able to personalize more searches)
  • Bender responsive theme as default theme
  • Akismet for listings, (added akismet filter to new listings)
  • Expiration notice (emails to the users reminding them about the expiration date of each listing)
  • Added search filter to manage users
  • Sending email to new admins created from oc-admin
  • Manage users minor improvements (row colorsStatus , Link to public user profile)
  • Updated JQuery to 1.8
  • New routes for plugins (here)
  • Override email from and email name from
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements

Download Osclass 3.2 RC

List of plugins compatible with Osclass 3.2
Use plugins from this list since some actual plugins may not work correctly with Osclass 3.2

Edit @juanramon: I close and unstick this post because version 3.2.0 has been already released. You can go to 3.2.0 board if you have problems :)

Hi _CONEJO ... and you other OSClass TeamStars ...


1.)
For OSClass team which is behind the new 3.2.0 = CONGRATULATIONS, you have done a super job.
to all us OSClass friends, I think this version is the beginning of a new era for OSClass - Really
It,s fast, - it,s responsive, - it,s upfront, - and it,s easy to use, - and it,s working perfect. ;)
So with all the upcoming THEME stars we've seen here in the forum the last while,
I look forward to seeing (and perhaps buy) the first uber-cool responsive themes to ver.3.2.0
- -

2.)
First I maked one ,,grumble,, post because I got an error message every time I run the installation,

then I mistakenly deleted the post when I would update, that I _have_ found the error ?
ver. 3 .2.0 is very sensitive at FTP upload to distinguish between uppercase and lowercase letters.
(as from old days, I allways FTP with small letters - This is not good medicine with ver.3.2.0)
- -

3.)
I have played with, and tested ver 3.2.0 since I got home, and have only found tiny things to report:

* When using Iphone, all advert titles is way to big (I dont think they scale down as the rest)

* A detailed explanation of the new concept in -->admin area --> Advanced Settings -->Subdomain type
* may be appropriate, if not the forum should be flooded with posts on the subject
* Under admin area --> Settings --> Categories --> Edit category --> Enable / Disable the price field
* did it only work on new inserted adverts ? - I could not remove prices on existing ads ?
- -


4.)
A thing I dont understand, is:

Why not lift the Admin word processing up to CKeditor ?
CKeditor is (in my opinion) light years ahead in user-friendliness, and webmaster stuff - Please - please ...

So was my understanding that the search engine was improved ? it can still not search for short words unfortunately,

BUT:
The new user image uploader, which itself open to the next upload, must make many webmasters happy ;D
AND:
I think the version is fast, - For a long time I have worked on a huge Twitter project,
so this ver 3.2.0 and Bender is really like a Rocket to heaven
(certainly when there are not so many ads - and heavy plugins involved) ha,,ha,,ha,,
- -


Once more = THANKS to the OSClass Team for this deluXeness,
and again, genuine responsiviet is the future, just have faith in that.



Best Regards.:/ s51

Hi s51,

* Could you explain a little more your FTP problem?
* We're going to explain the new "subdomain" feature
* I will look at the issue with the prices
* We used tinyMCE, there're no plans to change it to CKEditor, but I could take a look at it
* Search engine, per se, has not been improved/replaced (we use MySQL FULLTEXT), what we do is improve the SQL queries


Hi Web-Media
That's a good idea, I will create a new sub board as soon as possible


Hi phpd
Yes, there're a lot of features on this new version, most of them were the most voted ideas on uservoice, so it's what the community wants and needs.
It's difficult to make a software bug-free, but this version passes ALL of our automated tests (If you now selenium/simpletest, you could try by yourself). So we're quite happy with the quality of it.

I haven´t tested yet osclass 3.2, but i have a few questions about the features, after reading the highlights list.

1º We will be able to change the region.website.com to website.com/region?

2º Highlighted features and pinned at top were created?

Thanks and keep the good work

ok tested 3.2 for some time, and what considers me are 4 problems if i could call them that

1. trying to place long add for example:

"https://blabalslalsals?msid=200554330852843616980.0004e0fd0703dbb9359da&msa=0&ll=22.093875,21.591225&spn=0.104377,0.338173https://blabalslalsals?msid=200554330852843616980.0004e0fd0703dbb9359da&msa=0&ll=22.093875,21.591225&spn=0.104377,0.338173" will totally destroy listing in category view and will go under lines ( thats tested in default theme) btw totally same is on all older versions with default theme if u put one long line without any breaks website doesnt understand where to break and puts one loong line.

2. _CONEJO we totally need some regulations on disabling enabling statistics. oc_t_item_stats in my db hitting around  300k rows in 3 months which is insane i imagine what will happen in even larger websites on deleting em each month or so.

3. I dont really understand expiration date of item if users can't set theyr own expiration date on them. The way i see it users should be able to pick expiration date for item between some dates which are regulated by admin, and admin should regulate those dates on category or in some sort publishing settings.

4. New option ban rules.. this is very good new option to ban ip adresses but in order to get ip we need to connect to db and check for logs on item or user, AFAIK there is no way to get ip address on user or listing itself from admin panel which makes new feature not so useful at the moment

for item3, if the expiration can be determine by paypal subscription 7 days $1, 14 days $2 as an example that will be best to generate some revenue for site maintainence because presently the paypal plugin doesn't work will redirect to blank page :( it is possible to have paypal integrated to osclass 3.2? help

paypal plugin blank page issue-> http://forums.osclass.org/plugins/paypal-redirect-to-blank-page-url-shows-plugin/

  • Expiration notice (emails to the users reminding them about the expiration date of each listing)

I am trying the expiration feature on bender, but I am not sure it is working correctly.
I am not getting the expiration notice, and I am not able to renew expired ads. I am supposed to be able to do that, right?

Hi _CONEJO and OSClass team...

1.)

As @gilden - I,m was also testing OnLine, the new expiration feature, under the new @feralou bender.
But unfortunately Team.Star boys, - it did not work properly :(
- -

2.)

As expiration test - set up 4 ads under Animals - with different users and e-mails.

* No one get the promised warning expiration notice mail, warning was set to one day before.

* Today on expiration day,  OSClass closed / turned down correct the 4 test ads, from mainpage.
* But after the Animals tittle  - the ciffer 4 still exists - even the ads now are auto taken down
* And no users is able to renew the expired ads - there is just nothing under UserAccount/Listnings
- -

I did not understand that point, please explain a little more

2. _CONEJO we totally need some regulations on disabling enabling statistics. oc_t_item_stats in my db hitting around  300k rows in 3 months which is insane i imagine what will happen in even larger websites on deleting em each month or so.

We'll take a look at it, I don't fell like that's a big problem, but you're probably right and we should address this issue


3. I dont really understand expiration date of item if users can't set theyr own expiration date on them. The way i see it users should be able to pick expiration date for item between some dates which are regulated by admin, and admin should regulate those dates on category or in some sort publishing settings.


And you could , replace ItemForm::input_expiration() (in your theme/item_post.php) by

Code: [Select]
ItemForm::expiration_select($options);

Where options is an array of DAYS (by default is this : array(0,1,3,5,7,10,15,30);)


4. New option ban rules.. this is very good new option to ban ip adresses but in order to get ip we need to connect to db and check for logs on item or user, AFAIK there is no way to get ip address on user or listing itself from admin panel which makes new feature not so useful at the moment

I will add that soon

Hi s51,

Warning expiration email are sended by cron system and by default isn't enabled, you should enable it via oc-admin -> listings -> settings -> 'Warn about expiration'.

By default osclass execute his 'own' cron jobs, but only if site have visits the cron will be executed, if your site have no visitors the cron jobs won't be executed.

I'm testing the stats issues... and I will come back with more information.

Thanks for reporting and regards

I have the option enabled and ran the cron multiple times, but still no emails sent.
