Damn, the 2.0 package is broken. This key is missing :evil:

I'll release a 2.0.1 to fix that ( yeah marc, current 2.0 should in fact be 2.0.1 hehe )..

I have already created some categories and then clicked Forums. I see Forums listing (empty) and "Insert new" & "Delete selected" buttons. I press "Insert new" and Forums listing simply disapperas together with buttons. Where am i wrong ?

hhmm.. the page gets blank only when you click "insert new"? the other links keep working? Which database are you using?

Also, I'm uploading a 2.0.1 version to sourceforge.net, which fixes a small bug related to Internacionalization.

I use Tomcat 5.0.25 on WinXP. I set up forum recently and can't understand one thing.
When i am trying to create new forum - I click Forums->Forums listing->Insert new. As a result I see blank screen (with Administration menu only).

What should I do ?

If Right click->View HTML code, I see:

<STYLE type=text/css>@import url( /jforum/templates/default/admin/style.css );</STYLE>

<form action="/jforum/jforum.page" method="post" name="form" id="form" accept-charset="UTF-8" onSubmit="return checkInput()">
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="insertSave" />
<input type="hidden" name="module" value="adminForums" />
<input type="hidden" name="securityHash" value="380b86a468f6e0fedf3d152eb3c249f0" />

<script language="javascript">
function checkGroups()
{
if (document.form.groups.selectedIndex == -1) {
alert("Please choose at least one Group");
return false;
}

return true;
}

function checkCategory()
{
if (document.form.categories_id.selectedIndex < 0) { <br /> alert(" <br /> Expression I18n.getMessage("Forums.Form.ChooseCategory") is undefined on line 24, column 26 in default/admin/forum_form.htm. <br /> The problematic instruction: <br /> ---------- <br /> ==> ${I18n.getMessage("Forums.Form.ChooseCategory")} [on line 24, column 24 in default/admin/forum_form.htm]

Could it be that you haven't defined a category before inserting the new forum ?

Edit :

I have just checked jira. This bug (or a similar one) seems to have been fixed recently :

OK, I added a new file release to https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=15940. Try with this 2.0.1, please.

Good


:?: :?: :?: HOWEVER: after i've created new groups i want to create new users within these groups. If i switch to Users menu i see Admin and Anonimous users and i don't see command to create new users. As i understand - users are allowed to register themselves and Admin can work with existing users only and can't to create new ones. Am i right ? :?:



Yes, you're right. Currently it's not possible to create users in the administration panel. Is not hard to have this done, but I have a few other priorities in the momment. But JForum will have it for sure in some next release
