3.2 EMOJIS, POEMS, ETC.Posts in the Maian Greetings forum by TipTop

Hi There,

I just found out about version 3.2.  I Didn't receive an Email about that for some reason.

My 3.2 Upgrade went Mainly Well, except for the Results.  I Removed (content/ecard-files/ - content/emojis/ - licence.lic) from the Zip, just like you wrote.

When I Click On the Add Emojis link, it shows (/home/tte/public_html/content/_theme_custom/html/ecards/ecard-emoji.htm is missing).  I Uploaded a BackUp on a Different URL, and the BackUp Also Doesn't have (/home/tte/public_html/content/_theme_custom/html/ecards/ecard-emoji.htm).  However, I Never had that Error before.

Max Ecard Recipients: 3, and Enable WYSIWYG Edit for Visitors: Yes Aren't changing anything.  Even After I Clear my Cache.

Also, when I click Preview Ecard, the Animation PopUp Keeps Spinning Around.  smile

Are you subscribed to the newsletter?

Looks like you are using a custom theme, so you'll need to make sure the theme is up to date and that any new files are copied over. The file you mention is in the download zip and was also in previous versions.

I Should be Subscribed to the Newsletter.  smile

I Copied (ecard-emoji.htm) from Default to Custom, and now I see my Custom Emojis in  1 Vertical line.  smile

How do I know if the Custom Theme is Up To Date?  And How do I know what New Files to Copy Over?  As far as I can guess, once I Copy the New Files from Default to Custom, it should be Up to Date.  smile

I Copied (ecard-poem.tpl.php) to the Custom Directory, Cleared the Cache, and Poems Still Aren't showing.  smile

Check the upgrade instructions and the appendix information. It details what files are new.

3 Open the following files:

content/*theme*/ecard-pickup.tpl.php
content/*theme*/ecard-compose.tpl.php
content/*theme*/footer.tpl.php

Add in the captcha option (refer to new files)

<?php
echo $this->CAPTCHA;
?>

Please Explain (refer to new files).  Thanks!

4 Update the following files for multiple recipient & poems (where applicable). Refer to the latest version files:

content/*theme*/ecard-compose.tpl.php (Multiple Recipients, Poems)
content/*theme*/ecard-preview.tpl.php (Poems)
content/*theme*/ecard-view.tpl.php (Poems)

Please Explain Update the following files for multiple recipient & poems (where applicable). Refer to the latest version files:

Language (Update for all language folders)
1 Open the 'content/language/english/ecard.php' language file and update the following:

$msw_send_ops4
$msw_send_ops5

I Found $msw_send_ops4, and $msw_send_ops5.  They Both have English text after them.  How do I Update them?

2 Update the following email template file:

content/language/english/email-templates/ecard-usage-notification.txt

I Changed the word Music to the word Audio.  What else should I Update in that file?

1 If you have added custom ops, you should update this for multiple recipients:

control/system/modules/ecard-ops/custom.php

How can I find if I have Added Custom OPS?  smile

maiandavid

Where it says 'refer to new files' it means refer to the new files in the latest version.

I Found $msw_send_ops4, and $msw_send_ops5.  They Both have English text after them.  How do I Update them?

Follow the instructions, which you have already posted above. lol.

Custom ops is whatever you might have added to the custom layout, I have no idea what they might be.

What else should I Update in that file?

Refer to the file in the latest version.

I Looked at some of the New Files, and Didn't see:

<?php
echo $this->CAPTCHA;
?>

I have No Clue where to add them in those 3 theme files.

(Update the Following) would make more sense if it says (Customize the Following) for $msw_send_ops4 and $msw_send_ops5.

As you know, the Whole file control/system/modules/ecard-ops/custom.php is Commented.  I'm Not yet getting how to Edit that page to Allow Multiple Recipients?  smile

If you look at the appendix it says to refer to the new files for the captcha. So, you open your theme files and the new theme files (see the default theme from the latest zip) and add in the captcha code that is missing.

For the custom ops file, if your current custom-ops file has no values you don't need to add anything there. You need to update the theme files for the multiple recipient code, not the custom ops. The custom ops file is for additional callback operations, nothing else. Once the theme is updated, it should work ok. Appendix > Template Files > 4

You can always revert back to the default theme and then apply the changes again.

Make sure the "Receive Email Notification For Sent Ecards" setting is enabled. If it is, check your spam folder and the mail debug log if you have it enabled. It will be in the 'logs' folder.

It definitely works ok, I just tested it again. I assume the option is checked on the ecard send page? "Receive Notification When Ecard is Picked Up?"

If it's not in spam and it's being sent, it's a mystery. lol.

I Tested again, and NO notification Email when I Opened my Test Ecard.

In Admin, the Viewed Ecards All show Viewed 31 Dec 1969 @ 13:00PM.  Why does it say that?!  LOL  smile

1. Delete any logs that exist in the logs folder
2. Send an ecard and then click to view it
3. Then email me the log @ teamayu@maildepot.net

No, just a forwarder we use.

So, just to clarify, the recipient gets email notificationof the ecard and you get notification an ecard was sent, but the sender doesn't get notification the ecard was picked up by the recipient?
