Just curious how stable the alpha version of 1.9.3 is seeming to be? I realize it obviously will have some bugs, but I'm eager to use it in one of my existing sites which currently has no forum but has a large existing membership base using the .net membership provider.

So anyways, I'm just wondering if the alpha version seems to have a lot of bugs or if for the most part it seems somewhat stable. If it's more on the occasional bug side of things I will probably put it up as my site has no forum, so a buggy forum would be an improvement.

Also when the "final" release of 1.9.3 comes out is anticipated that the upgrade from the alpha or eventual beta version(s) will require a lot of work, or mostly just replacing the binaries and files? Thanks!

It seems to be running fine for me on my localhost with no crashes. I tried upgrading my older versions, however, and it turned out to be a disaster. After hours of trying, I finally gave up and reinstalled the older version onto my site.

Clegs... Please explain some of your problems. It's ALPHA software and you can give back a lot more by at least offering your experience to help. Saying it was "a disaster" only creates FUD without basis.

hello all,

The error is displayed below after changing language type (Turkish) & save in the admin panel.

Any comment ?

Sorry, first it couldn't write the config password to the config file (even though I gave it write permission). So I wrote some script to hash the password for me, then it worked fine. After I did the upgrade, it kept giving me errors about undeclared

The main thing that made it a disaster was that the backup of the DB that I made was corrupt and I had to go back to the previous day's backup (meaning we lost a lot of posts).

I don't want to create FUD, I like 1.9.3 and it runs great without a problem on some of my systems. Just on the shared server that I rent, it would install but not run.

Your first problem is permissions related (permissions were granted to wrong account?), second is problem of improperly set web.config. You probably didn't merge 1.9.3 config with your original one, resulting in undeclared tag errors. Since sencond mentioned problem was due to bad web.config, I guess third is of the same nature.

All in all, 1.9.3 is yet in ALPHA stage and upgrading production site to it is still a risky move (Jaben could tell us about it). But your problems seems more related to not enough attention paid to configuration/merger than general failure of new version.


When I post FP:Ederon in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting.

Hi

I am looking at v1.9.3, but can't get it to compile. I get 88 errors, all related to Unknown server tag 'YAF.[name of control]'.

The YAF.Controls compile correctly into the root /Bin folder, so it *should* know the tags for the controls... or am I missing something?

In other threads, you mention that the YAF.dll should be in the /Bin folder of the root (eg, when people have YAF in a subfolder of the root). I cannot find the YAF.dll, or is this the .dll generated when the Forums compile correctly?

I am using VS2008, with the solution set to use .NET 2.0

YAF looks great, just what I need, although 1.9.1.x has been running slowly on a Virtual Server with 1GB RAM and using SQL Server Express 2005.

But thanks the hard work.

Regards

Andrew

What type of project? 1.9.3 uses VS2005 web site project with dynamic compilation, those unknown YAF tags are defined in web.config (are you missing it?). Look in install.txt.

Hi everyone 🙂

I have a problem with embedding YAF in my sample site with standard User and Role providers.

(Offtop: Before all, I have run forum as standalone web site and it's ok; then I turned Role and User providers to standard ones and it was almost ok: I can register (user created in DB in asp.net table) but can't login :) )

To embed YAF to my site, I have read this (http://wiki.yetanotherforum.net/embeddedYaf.ashx), but what is this:

Quote:

Move the yafnet.config file from ~/yaf to ~.

Ensure that the yafnet.config file "points" to the place where you have YAF installed, in the example case:

/yaf

?

what is "yafnet.config"? YAF 1.9.3 haven't this file 😞

Missing files....

MS does not always copy all files using Vista FTP and copy files from zips correctly (98% OK, 2% oops).

I had a Vista Issue with the YAF extract not getting copies of all the zip files into the folder. And Microsoft FTP in windows is worse than useless. Use Putty or smartftp.

Please try FireFtp  

I am happy with it that runs on Firefox as add-on

Check the install.txt in the website directory, but I think you can use either debug.config or release.config, both those files are the new replacement for yafnet.config and use the release.config if you are publishing your site.

Could anyboudy provide a sample project like this: simple website (with 2 page: login.aspx and default.aspx) with embedded YAF? This will be useful for many users 🙂
