Moved from PHP 5.2.9 (END OF LIFE) to 5.3.24. After doing so, IP.Board started showing "..." for any thread title that was to long vs just cropping and appending "..." to the end. I would not expect a move from 5.2.9 to 5.3.24 to make an issue. I mean, this IP.Board code is the one that is deciding when to add "..." to the end of something. And when you move to 5.3.24 it ends up doing "..." for the entire text if over X characters in size vs just cutting and adding "..." at the end. See screenshot.Going back to 5.2.9 all works fine...but I can not be on a end of live product like that.I would think someone would know what to look for or a php setting or something. I am using WHM for the server and it is my own server. Thank you kindly.David
you have a hook which color text based on member group or something like that? disable it :)
Nope. Not that I am aware. Also happens on the default IP.Board skin.
Not sure why a hook would make that happen on PHP 5.3 and not on PHP 5.2. ???
Thank you kindly for the reply.
cannot remember exact one but its deprecated module issue iirc, see whats compiled with 5.2 and lists as deprecated for 5.3
pretty sure its NOT mod_securiy or suhosin issue but could be wrong.
fwiw I ran 5.4 from easyapache with no issues.....
check server logs. also try disabling all hook, just in case
was thinking about this last night and I THINK I saw something in logs relating to fcgid (cpanel) when I saw display error. was just so long ago I cannot remember for sure.
I really should note stuff down better, I mess around so much trying stuff when I see crap I should note it.
one thing that may be worth trying too in in acp-lookk and feel-template tools do a rebuild master skin data and check everything then do a recache.
Glad to see I am not the only one that has run into this. That makes me even more think that Invision needs to also keep a list of recommend PHP settings. If I was alone, that is one thing, but surely I am not. I am also now wondering how many NEW IP.Board owners have the issue and are not even aware they have one as they have nothing to compare with on their site.
I will try 5.4 and see what happens.
if needed I can hop over to the site and pm you (maybe blount too?) my php modules from phpinfo page.
If it is a hook the "group format" is one likely candidate I've seen something similar happen before.
Same Issue on 5.4.14.
Disabled ALL HOOKS, same issue.
Tried default theme, same issue.
yeah seeing it on stock skin too.
disable all add on mods (not just the hooks) also?
try the rebuild skin data posted above too.
does anyone remember seeing a post a bit ago about charset (sql) causing issues? looked through tracker but cannot find anything.
Disabled apps one at a time...no change. Recached all skins.
This is surely in PHP setting and IP.Board. If I go back to 5.2 no issue. IP.Board really should be helping with this as it clearly relies on some setting.
yeah got to be something between the php versions.
made an info page you can access to compare against and sent to you.
wait do you have curl enabled?
not seeing that
older apache version was issue, something I had not seen before.
good learning experience :)
WOW...And thanks Dave for the help and spotting that. Amazing to say the least.
We are all good now.
if I learn something new every day I am happy.
if I remember it the next day I am ecstatic :P
