What's New in Version 1.0.3 See changelog
- No functional changes
- Tested and confirmed working on IPS 4.6.0 (Beta)
This is a free application - any support provided is via PM, and is limited to the integration between the PHP-HTMLDIFF library and IPS; no support is provided for how the PHP-HTMLDIFF library functions.
Some likely questions that may be asked:
- Where are the settings? There are none
- How do I turn it on? Install the application and enable it - that is all.
- But how do I see what it does? Click the 'Edit history' link in an edited comment.
- But there isn't one, why? Because you aren't logging edit history. Go to your ACP, type edit in to the search bar and click on "Edit log" - set this setting to 'Log all edits made to content and what was changed' and then edit history will be captured as and when someone edits a comment.
- Is this setting part of your application? No, it's a stock IPS setting.
- I have that setting enabled now, how do I know it is now working? Then you need to edit a comment...that will then show you the 'Edit history' link which you can then link. If a comment was edited BEFORE the setting was enabled then there is no edit history to be viewed because it wasn't being captured.
- I clicked on the 'Edit history' link in a comment before I added your application and then again after the application was installed - it's not working, any idea why? The result of the first click is cached on the page, so when the second click is performed then it just shows the same thing again. Refresh the page, then the link will show an updated edit history, which should contain
- I've checked all of the above, it's still not working. What do I do? After checking below to see if there are any current known issues, then you contact me via PM - be prepared to provided a link to comment with an edit history on it, and ACP credentials to check things behind the scene closer.
- Will you be updating the application now that v0.1.13 of Caxy Interactive's 'PHP-HTMLDIFF' library, which was released on 27th September 2021? No, I will not as the change implemented in that release is not relevant to the functionality of the library as used in this application.
- In some live environment, the differences are not being highlighted in the edit history, even after ensuring all the above steps have been checked. This is due to the 3rd-party PHP-HTMLDIFF library not loading correctly, and is triggering a template error. This issue is resolved in v1.0.1
