Hi house, I have been severally tempted to overlook the presentation of Partial Titles so to say. I feel this is something to be corrected. The snippet may or may not even appear much.

I have seen this appear also on UNA Blocks and I must say that the UNA discussions and post are different from a regular website post. Here we search things out to locate post relevant to our issues, we also care to read other peoples issues to know how to ensure we dont experience same problems, just like we visit the pharmacy by necessity and not for pleasure, we ask for what we need, we dont realy care how and where they display our prescription. That is UNA.

For our websites, we market, we attract visitors to read what we show them and the first reference point is the TiTle presenting our post. A Half Title is not good as it communicates nothing. So it will be nice to have all titles in any BLOCK wrapped.

I transfered a site Full Database to another Domain without the files since I had the same set of fime in the new destination. Every other things works well without errors except that all the Custom Fields (close to 300 predefined and value fields) created during modification is displaying sys codes without the frontend values as captured in the attachement.

Is there any particular folder or files I need to transfer to the new server? What am I missing out please? I need the help of the house please. Thanks in advance.

I realised there is no provision yet functional on Sound/music or audio upload and playing. Its been talked about a year ago and nothing definite in the discussion. Whats the position now. Media is not complete without audio upload and player.

I must acknowledge that UNA is a wonderful framework even though as porwerful as it has been I keep thinking of a few things for tomorrow which can find full application for today.

A lot of people are on stuffs designed for the world and lets take a single sinario where a lot of organizations and individuals signs up on a platform running on UNA, "How do people refrence their pages on Postcards, Letterheads, Business Cards and even mentions on Radios, TVs etc"?

There is need for something neater than the present links we see on the address bars. My Question is Can We Get This To Life Now? 

Facebook has this and I think UNA is out to beat the status quo. We need to be upfront. 

A web handle like, dediary(dot)com/mypage is more presentable than dediary(dot)com/page/view-persons-profile?id=1 to the public . I see this as a potential drawback. Whats your take guys?

Organization Post, Event, Files View pages should have a Block to display "LIST of Posts, Events and Files" by the same Author Or "Author's Posts" (Showcase View). 

When one is accessing the site through the the public door without any particular Organization in mind,  all contents are given same exposure as it is. Thats is Great.

However, when you choose to go for a particular Organization profile, you enter through the Org home, thats also GREAT as all features has exposure. When you now zero-in on either, File, Posts, Events Homes, you see all "Posts" depending on your studio settings. Clicking takes you to full content and here you no longer have the privilege of seeing the Authors publications except, public Featured, Top Posts, Favorites and so on. One this is missing here.

Where the Author is a writer and has many publications, a Block for "Post Title List" Or "Author's Posts" (Showcase View) will be great and this should be served on the "Post Full View Page". This will prevent navigating back to "Post Home". Profile owners should be giving the maximum privileges for exposure in there own space. As it is, all available block offered in "Add Block" takes the visitor off the desired page except he choses to hit the back button in order to access more posts.

While seeing the full content of a particular post, visitors should have the convenience of seeing other publication (of same origin) in a List Form Or "Author's Posts" (Showcase View). As it is now, while on the viewing page, you can only access another publication from the same Authur by going to the Home Pages for (File, Post or Events).

While trying to figure out if the Add Content option, I also got this ommission as attached.

My view.

UNA is a framework to achieve anything, I believe the present search functionality is a limitation to that dream. So many niches that Dolphin has been known for requires Advanced Search capability, like Dating and many other profiling projects. My persons profile has 21 fields for 7 different categories and can only search all that with full name and gender. thats to much barrier.

Take Auto business for example requires more than just keywords too. 

Please I suggest that you unlock the capacity of UNA in this area. It should even be on the "Front Burner" so to speak. 

This limited search for Persons and Orgs makes me feel like UNA is in jail, please set it free.

You can submit the DOB field without imput even when set to Required(*)

I have experience this on my site and also on The DOB Field is Required(*) and I submited my profile without filling it.

I hope this is being looked into, because it will be of no use to set permitted age range for a website when the VALIDATOR can be beaten.

The field for Date of Birth marked Required(*) is submitted successfully.

There are several potential problems in this release which are easily fixable

1) site may remain in maintenance mode after upgrade when SMPT Mailer module is enabled, in this case check logs/upgrade.log for any error if everything is ok, then just delete .bx_maintenance file from the root UNA folder

2) if you have Froala editor module installed, then you need to install new FontAwesome Pro module to have toolbar correctly displayed in the editor

3) Froala editor may display message about the license error, then just clear your browser's cache.

I am suggesting an enhancement for the Forum categorization to enable it useful for those that may have wide project scope for example discussion on National security for different countries cannot be appropriately categorised as Security.

It should be a subcategory under USA because National Security is country specific to mention a few. 

Take Auto industry for example: SUVs divided into Brand like Toyota, BMW etc

Forum of global scope must give room for subcategorization. The present single level category will be too long and is limited in application just ok for corporate issues. I think Dolphin has this capability.

My suggestion.

Since I re-installed the latest version afresh my website and got the modules all installed, I realised I cannot post to feed as Administrator. It pops up "Not logged in users can't post". If i refresh after this action, It will display the login and Signup links. I am instantly logged out when I try posting to feed as Admin.

Ordinary member account works fine and even on my Test Site, Admin can post to feed.

The post displayed on the Public Feed (Outline) is supposed to be a snippet of the publication. But it displays the full content and defeats the purpose of the Outline.
