serendipity_event_autoupdate doesn't show anything

Hi, I think, I am missing something. But shouldn't the serendipity_event_autoupdate show me a message on my dashboard, when a new update is available?

I installed it after an update to 2.3.0 and since then it never showed anything on my dashboard. I updated manually to 2.3.1 after some days after its release, but now there is 2.3.2 and again no message on my dashboard. The plugin is installed and active. Is there anything I have to configure?

Greets,
Gregor

Make sure your host allows outbound connections. You can test from an ssh command line with
php check-connection.php where check-connection.php is

Code: Select all

<?php
$host = 'github.com';
if (($s = @fsockopen($host,80,$errno,$errstr,5)) === false)
{
    $testresult = "$errstr ($errno)";           
}
else
{
    $testresult = "Good connection to $host";
}   
echo "$testresult\n";
?>

There is actually a configuration option for this. Serendipity will show you an update notification even without the autoupdate plugin, just without the button to update directly. Have a look under Configuration -> General Setting -> Update notification.

@onli that was it, thanks! I didn't know about that config option. Using s9y since 13 years, never noticed that update notification, missing it since day one :roll:

I think the update notification is from 2014, so you've not been missing it such long. ;)
