Hallo!

@Jörg Peter

Das wäre eine sehr schöne Idee, wenn man die E-Mails automatisch eintragen lassen könnte. Ich kenne das von anderen Anbietern, die benutzen diese Funktion bei Support-Tickets.

Gruß
Stefan

Ps: Sorry, dass ich als neues Foren-Mitglied mich gleich solchen Wünschen anschließe.....

Hallo,

an folgenden Stellen sind unsererseits noch Wünsche offen:

-) Redaktion / einheitliches Erscheinungsbild der Artikel

Um ein einheitliches Erscheinungsbild der Artikel zu gewährleisten auch wenn die Redaktion der Artikel durch wechselnde Autoren erfolgt, wären Hilfsmittel im Backend sehr hilfreich. Z.B. Format-Vorlagen im Editor oder auch Templates für Artikel oder Artikel-Teile.
Die Funktion 'CSS-Stile' im Editor ist diesbzgl. nicht sehr hilfreich, da dazu im style.css Konstrukte der Art 'CSS-Klasse, CSS-ID, CSS-Klasse' erforderlich sind. Das sollte man (glaub ich) nicht machen.
Auch handelt es sich bei dem Editor nicht wirklich um WYSIWYG, da es mit einem eigenen CSS arbeitet. Wenn am Frontend umfangreiche Änderungen am CSS vorgenommen wurden, entspricht die Darstellung im Editor nicht mehr der im Frontend.

Auch eine erweiterte Möglichkeit, unterschiedliche Revisionen direkt miteinander zu vergleichen (wobei Unterschiede idealerweise hervorgehoben würden, würde den Redaktionsworkflow vereinfachen.

-) Authentifizierung / Single-Sign-On

Unsere FAQ ist nur eines von mehereren von uns eingesetzten Online-Tools, das geht sicherlich vielen Anwendern so. Wünschenswert wäre es für uns daher den Aufwand zur Benutzerverwaltung zu minimieren (idealerweise nur an einer Stelle), sowie die benötigten Anmeldungen zu verringern.
Eine Authentifizierung gegen LDAP wünschen wir uns daher sehr. Ebenfalls wünschenswert, allerdings vermutlich aufwendiger zu implementieren, ist die Möglichkeit sich an einem anderen Tool anzumelden und diese Anmeldung in die FAQ mitzunehmen. Zwar liesse sich das durch mehr oder weniger aufwendige Änderungen an phpMyFAQ selbst realisieren, jedoch wäre unsere Engine wegen der Änderungen am Code nicht mehr ohne weiteres update-fähig. Ideal wäre es daher, wäre diese Option von der Engine unterstützt.

Für Hinweise wie sich die hier von mir geschilderten Probleme bereits mit vorhandenen Mitteln lösen lassen oder falls ich einen Sachverhalt falsch einschätze bin ich natürlich ebenso dankbar.

Gruss, Tony

e-mail and enabling faq/open_questions

Post by Torsten02 » Tue Mar 04, 2008 11:21 am

Hi,

we are a small institute looking for something like phpMyFAQ. We tested 2.0.6 and are quite impressed 8)

But what would really help us, would be the possibility to send an email to a member of our group, when posting a new open_question! So that he or she knows, that there is an new open_question for him/her.

Another nice new feature for us would be, if we could disable the "enabling_by_admin"-feature for new faq and answered questions. (or is there an easy way to hack this?)

Thanks a lot,
Torsten

Schedule for version 2.5?

Post by epicflupe » Thu Apr 24, 2008 7:33 am

Hi!

I guess this question has been asked many times before... :)

What´s the schedule for 2.5? I intend to use your product for a larger crowd and have to decide wether to wait unti 2.5 or go with the current version..

Can you give us your best "guess" about the release date/moth?

thanks! /Eric

Dabase error when adding contents phpMyFAQ 2.5

Post by sallokatallo » Sat Jun 13, 2009 5:44 pm

Hello - please help!

I installed 2.5 on a system that's about to go into production in a week! (I know I am stupid... I made a backup only of the www/var directory - not the whole system... :( )

Everything (including editing of contents) is working great except:

Since upgrading to 2.5 (from 2.0.15):

When adding a user:
Specified login could not be found.

Whenever adding a Group:
Databse Error!

And when adding an article, it says it's added successfully, but it doesn't show up!

It's at: http://faq.epikip.net/faq/

All updates on the Ubuntu machine are applied.


Anybody has any ideas?



Below is my system information:

Yes... the update script ran successfully. I have also previously updated the FAQ successfully TWICE - from 2.0.13 to 2.0.14 and then 2.0.14 to 2.0.15 - but this time I am having issues. Everything (including editing existing contents) is working except it's not letting me add new contents... :(

Hi,

could you please try to delete your brower's cache and cookies. I think the old javascript library is still in use in your browser.

Hey Thorsten.

Thanks for your help. I tried now from multiple browsers and multiple different computers - and now I tried after clearing cache - still with no luck.

Search and other new features are all working great (and look and feel is really cool as well)...

But still unable to add any type of content(s) :(

Thanks.

so you cannot add any user, any new category, or any new FAQ entry?

That's right - it's not letting me add any type of content - but editing of contents works fine. I had tested this with articles, users, and categories.

Thanks.

Hi,

that's very very strange. Do you have full disk space? Or is something locked? Did you reached your quota? Could you check this with phpMyAdmin?

Thank you again - I will try that and let you know. Disk space/quota is definitely not an issue. I will post what results phpMyAdmin gives.
