Re: Has the "Template dropdown" plug-in been finished?

[quote="Timbalu"]... (snip to right before closing body in index.tpl) to get the page once per request./quote] Hi Ian, Thanks for mentioning that. Do you mean I should paste the piwik blurb into index.tpl near the end of the body, just before the closing tag </body>? And will that give me statistics...

Re: Has the "Template dropdown" plug-in been finished?

Hi Garvin, I've just tried updating from v1.7.5 to 1.7.6, but that leads to an error message: "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ';', expecting ',' or ')' in /www/htdocs/.../blog/plugins/serendipity_event_templatechooser/serendipity_event_templatechooser.php on line 60" I've just re-installed te...

Re: Has the "Template dropdown" plug-in been finished?

Hi Garvin, Thanks for dealing with the issue so quickly. :-) Ian, thanks for the link to the critical blog post on the BSI's security test. Now I understand what you meant. Regarding the plug-in again, if you feel it shouldn't be used any more, then I suggest you and the other programmers discuss th...

Re: Has the "Template dropdown" plug-in been finished?

Good morning Ian, Thank you for replying last night, but your message was rather confusing. First of all, one of the developers last year (was it you?) told me users should report anything that doesn't work properly via this forum so it can be fixed, which is why I got in touch. I can't say whether ...

Has the "Template dropdown" plug-in been finished?

Sorry for asking what may seem like a silly question to experienced users here, but I've only just started using this particular plug-in. Why is it that some of the names mentioned in the drop-down menu like "Bulletproof" and "Coffee Cup" act like skins on my blog, changing the design and colour of ...

Re: Changing the format of entry dates in English

Hi everyone, I'm currently trying out some of the alternative templates s9y provides and would like to use "Bulletproof" for a while as I like the clear layout. :D Can anyone advise me how to change the current date format, please? The date of my last blog post is "Friday, January 24. 2014", for exa...

Error message when trying to install plug-ins

Hi, I'd like to install some plug-ins on my s9y blog (anti-spam plug-ins, to be precise), but keep on getting this error message: "Cannot write to directory /www/.../.../blog//plugins/. Please check the permissions." For some reason, there's a // between the word "blog" and "plugins", which doesn't ...

Re: Required input fields in Spamblock

Thanks for your reply, Ian. Regarding this first point, If you set "name, email, replyTo, comment" into that spamblock field, the homepage field is still available, but is optional to be filled or not. ... Yes, I understand that now, but visitors who are trying to fill in the comment form won't real...

Re: Required input fields in Spamblock

Hi Timbalu and Onli, Thanks for your comments, both of you. Since ReplyTo doesn't seem to be necessary (even though it's mentioned as one of the possible input fields that can be used in the plug-in), I'll do as Timbalu says and just omit all the options so it picks the default ones. Another thing I...

Required input fields in Spamblock

Hi everyone, I'm having a bit of trouble with the input-field settings in the Spamblock plug-in. If I set them to "name, email, url, comment", then I get inundated with bogus comments (= spam). If I add the ReplyTo field to the required fields, then I don't get any comments at all. :shock: I initial...

Re: Changing the format of entry dates in English

Morning YellowLed, Thanks for giving me these two additional tips, which are very useful. I've already noticed that s9y doesn't want me to change anything in the files as "error" messages now appear whenever I try and verify the installation - due to the modifications I've made in the core files, as...

Re: Changing the format of entry dates in English

Thanks very much, Garvin. That was very helpful. :D The only thing I've altered in your snippet of code is the apostrophe after the year, which I got rid of, leaving this: {$dategroup.date|@formatTime:"%A, %e %B %Y"}. I edited entries.tpl in my template folder. Thanks again - that's my main issue so...

Changing the format of entry dates in English

Hi, Whenever I publish new entries for my English blog, the date of the entry that appears above them gets written this way: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20. 2013 Can anyone tell me how to get Serendipity to write "Friday, 20 September 2013" instead, please? In other words, using: - normal spelling with a mixt...
