Title: ElkArte 1.1.7 - Release announcement
Post by: Spuds on April 25, 2021, 08:36:36 pm
Today, we are pleased to release ElkArte 1.1.7. This is the 8th release in the ElkArte 1.1 line.

This release addresses many bugs and some minor security issues identified after the release of ElkArte 1.1.6. As this is a maintenance release, the majority of the updates are focused on bug fixes, PHP 7.4/8 compatibility and increased stability. A few enhancements to existing functionality was added, examples being one click un-subscribe in email notifications and the capability to search on subject when using a full text index.

This is patch does contain security fixes and we strongly encourage anyone running any previous version to update to the latest.

This release follows our semantic version (MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH), meaning that third-point (x.x.X) releases should contain backwards-compatible bug fixes and enhancements, so for the most part you will not find major new features in this release. Major new features will be reserved for second point versions (x.X.x).

Refer to the release notes on the forum for a complete list of updates. Release Notes (https://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php?topic=5976.0)

If you were running any of the previous beta 1.1.7 patches you must uninstall those and install this final package or great pain awaits you at some point  ;)
 

Patching procedure:

For any question you may have, feel free to ask on the support forum.

Of course you are encouraged to update to this release since it contains a lot of fixes and improvements, thank you for your continued support!

Did something change with the optimizing database function? Before it worked flawlessly, and now no matter what, it says there is nothing to optimize even though major changes were made to database.

Also can we fix the token verification failed error? I think it has to do with the user coming from different IP's if the hosting is behind a DDOS protection service like cloudflare.

What’s the error? Also the error in the error log associated with it.

If you’re constantly changing your ip it’s hard to validate the user mind. Ideally you should have a fixed ip for the duration of the session.

If you are running InnoDB as your storage engine, then it will not "optimize" those tables.  

Doing optimize on an InnoDB table is usually not necessary (unlike MyISAM).  Maybe after you have done A LOT of insert/update/delete against the table IN A WAY that could result in fragmentation.  Perhaps if you are using a FULLTEXT search index on an InnoDB table, that may benefit from DROP INDEX, then ADD INDEX but optimize really does a ALTER TABLE ... FORCE on InnoDB whichi is mostly a don't bother with our tables.

You are much better off tinkering with your conf file if you want to optimize InnoDB.

I recall some discussion on what the real IP is when using cloudflare or some others, Its in one of the x-headers.  Do a site search on cloudflare and see if those solutions will work for you.  But like @tino said, that IP should not change in session.

I wanted to like the last post (because it's about time we stopped encouraging 'optimize table' as a thing that people should 'just do') - but I couldn't like any post in this topic. Not sure if that's by intent (since there were likes in this topic before, but I can't like anything here now. Other topics seem to be fine.)

That like issue is a bit strange, you should be able to see and like the posts in this topic.   I'll add it to the list of things to look into :D

Only admin and moderators can it seems. Is it a permission thing?

Hello,
I did the update to the 1.1.7 and now you can't write new posts when you click on "Reply" or change one when you click on "Modify". Also quoting no longer works or creating a new topic. With all only this same error message appears:
Call to undefined function getMessageIcons()

File: /www/htdocs/…/…/sources/controllers/Post.controller.php
Line: 567

Line 567 looks after the update but the same as the one from before the update.
What can be the error and how can I fix it?

It’s been moved to MessageIcons.subs.php

So you’d need to include before that line. I’m not sure if that’s an addon which calls that or not but I’d expect everyone to get the issue if it wasn’t.

Sounds like an addon or custom theme issue.  You can try using the default theme and see if that fixes the issue, or if using addons which ones?

Yes, thank you, obviously it was due to an addon. After the update to 1.1.7, I had installed new versions of several addons and one of them apparently caused an error.
I've now completely uninstalled these addons and now everything works again in the forum. And tonight I will try to install the addons again and error-free. :)

Great... When you find the problem addon, please let us know which (especially if its one of mine!)

Post by: Mrs. Chaos on May 24, 2021, 10:28:03 pm
All 16 addons are now running again without problems. I have updated some of them, but with none of them I could see which one caused the error in the forum yesterday.
