Hi,

I just upgrade to version 2 hoping it would resolve my 2 issues. It did not, but added a 3rd one. I am sure they are pretty simple to fix.

1. Can't upload avatar. I get the following exception:

java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException: /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.1_01/jre/lib/i386/libawt.so: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


2. Can't put French characters in profile signature. In my posts, I see chars like

��������������������

instead of accented chars.


3. (New) "Back to home page" links to "http://localhost:8080"; instead of correct url. Other links work ok.

You can experience it at

http://kheops-tech.com/jforum/forums/list.page

Help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jean-Robert

This is not a bug, in fact, but some missing libraries in your linux distro. This is someway related to https://coderanch.com/t/574500 . In your case, probably you will need to create this new file. Try to find "libXp.so" in some library path, like /usr/X11R6/lib, and create a sym link to "libXp.so.6".



2. Can't put French characters in profile signature. In my posts, I see chars like

There is an encoding problem with jakarta's commons-fileupload, which causes this error. I don't have a solution yet.



3. (New) "Back to home page" links to "http://localhost:8080"; instead of correct url. Other links work ok.



Well, the best for the momment is to edit templates/default/forum_base.htm and put the correct link there .

Nope, item 2 is still in analisys.

What you can do is to try to change the character encoding of the pages.. By default, JForum uses UTF-8, which, when using together with multipart/form-data, prenvets the special chars to be correctly handled.

I made some tests and noted that, if you set the encoding to some other than UTF-8, like ISO-8859-1, it will work fine.

You can change the encoding in the Config section in the Admin Control Panel, or directly changing the "encoding" key at WEB-INF/config/SystemGlobals.properties.

But, if you wnat to keep using UTF-8, then open the file templates/default/user_form.htm and search for the <form> tag. There, you'll see an attibute named "accept-charset" with the value "${encoding}".. Change it to the desired encoding ( like ISO-8859-1 etc ) and test. Probably it will work.
