So I was playing around and figured I would enable the homepage submenu that displays Explore, Trends, Updates, etc. but when I click on Trends, Updates, or Explore, I just get blank pages.. 

I went in to Studio > Pages and I can see the pages there but there are no block in them. Am I missing something?

When someone posts JUST an image on the timeline (no text/comments with it), the notification does not render the language key _bx_timeline_txt_sample_with_image properly. I have checked the key and it is there. This seems to have started in UNA RC2 and still exists in UNA10 after I upgraded.  See the screenshot below. Please tell me how to fix this.

I had this happen once before with UNA 9 RC10 - see here:

I have been checking the B3 status on GitHub and see that it's at 78% at the moment. Is there an update that can be provided of when it might be released?

I really need these 2 issues below fixed as soon as we can get them.

Thanks in advance 😁

I think this has been discussed before but I couldn't find it. When you make a post to the timeline, in the post form you have all of the attachments available like Photo, Link, Video as seen below:

image_transcoder.php?o=bx_froala_image&h=1594&dpx=1&t=1562934962

But if you edit the post from the timeline, you do not get these options - Just post and cancel:

image_transcoder.php?o=bx_froala_image&h=1595&dpx=1&t=1562935005


It would be nice for user to be able to Add/Edit/Delete any media content that was added using these buttons on the initial post. I attempted to "switch" these on in the Edit Post area of Forms > Fields but it didn't work. When I enable Photo, it actually breaks the edit. Enabling Link or Video does nothing. 

Is there any way to add these attachments when editing a timeline post?

I have been doing some testing on a couple of sites and happened to notice that 1 of the sites were no longer updating any changes I was making to the CSS Styles.. I use Protean with a custom CSS Style Mix by default for my websites and Chrome as my browser. Here is what happens... 

If you go to the bottom of the page and click Design - You will see all the templates you have installed like below (I have Protean and Lucid):

 image_transcoder.php?o=bx_froala_image&h=1510&dpx=1&t=1561836723

If you click ANY of these, you cannot get back to your own Custom CSS you may have for Protean. So of course, any design updates I was making to my Custom CSS Style Mix was not reflecting in Chrome. I cleared the files and images cache in Chrome and it still didn't work. I had to clear the Cookie and Other Site Data (which signs me out of every website I am logged in to - pain in the ass). THEN I was able to see the my custom CSS Style Mix for Protean. 

You need to add a regular Protean into the choices that will allow you to go back to Protean using whichever Style Mix you have set for your site. Maybe even have (Default) next to whichever is set to default in Studio > Designer.

Hey Andrew Boon,

I would like to make a suggestion regarding the time cycles to updates and "fixes". I know that you made a post about how often you planned to provide updates to UNA in general however, I think there should also be some exceptions to the rule. 

With the latest release of 10.0.0-B1 - it was given as an option to install it or not. There are several of us who decided to go ahead and install it on test site and even some live sites. We did this in order to help test and report issues/bugs with the release. Myself, Baloo, Michael, and several others have been posting these issues here in the discussions area and unfortunately, I am not see many responses by anyone from the UNA team. This is very concerning as it seems we are not being heard and wasting our time (I know that isn't the case but..). UNA Team should at least acknowledge the posts with a resolution or a link to the issues list.

What I am getting to is this: We have reported several "major issues" that I believe should have already been fixed. For example, the Notifications issue I posted HERE and even mentioned it in the initial Beta 1 release post by you, almost immediately. This issue alone can cause major problems to a website. It's notifications that help keep the members engaged in what's going on. Then you have the permissions issue Michael posted about. No reactions notifications mentioned by Baloo. The UNA Team should be releasing these types of fixes almost immediately instead of waiting for more issues to be reported. I checked the GitHub and did not see anything regarding the Notifications issues and it is even happening here at una.io. 

I personally would rather have multiple "hot fixes" updates, even if it's just 1 module at a time, then waiting weeks or months for a bunch of things to get fixed at one time. I also think this would be much easier for the UNA Dev Team in general. I do understand that an update/fix to 1 module could affect multiple modules and I get that but if possible, please try to get these major issues fixed as soon as your team can.  

Again, this is not a rant and I am very happy with the release so far 😀 . This is strictly a mere suggestion.

On my homepage, I have the "universal" Post block like the one used here at UNA's homepage. When I create an update to the timeline and then click the "Post" button, the entry does not automatically show up in the Feed below it. I have to manually refresh the page to see it. I tried this with the Feed and the Outline on 2 different site and each do the same thing. 

I have disabled cache and tried it, re-enabled cache and tried it and still happens. Verified the Timeline module is at version 10.0.0

Any suggestions?

The notifications on my site are not working. I previously asked here whether we need to do something such as deactivate/reactivate the module to get them working again. 

I noticed here at una.io that notifications were not working properly here either until later on. Is there something we need to do? Need to get this fixed.

The post by Andrew was getting really long and difficult to follow so, I figured I would start a discussion topic instead to try and help those who are having issues with upgrading to UNA 10 Beta. This is JUST regarding the updating and not any other issues. 

First and foremost - BACK YOUR SITE AND DATABASE UP BEFORE DOING THIS UPGRADE.  

Next: Go into Studio and see what version is displaying in the Dashboard.

If you are showing 9.0.0 you MUST upgrade to 9.0.1 FIRST before doing this upgrade. If you see 9.0.0 as your version number then like me and other, your inc/classes/BxDolUpgrader.php already has /beta/ in the URL. Not sure how this happened since I downloaded UNA 9.0 from the homepage here. 

To upgrade from 9.0.0 to 9.0.1 you will need to edit the  inc/classes/BxDolUpgrader.php file and remove the /beta/ from the URL so it looks like this: 

protected $_sUrlVersionCheck = 'https://v.una.io/';

Go back into your Dashboard and check to see if you now see a 9.0.1 is available. If you do not see it, clear your cache and refresh the page.

If you see it, click the button to upgrade to 9.0.1. You should receive an email once the update is successful. Note: The module upgrades WILL FAIL and that is OK right now. 


Once you are now at 9.0.1, you will need to edit the inc/classes/BxDolUpgrader.php again and add /beta/ to the URL like this:

protected $_sUrlVersionCheck = 'https://v.una.io/beta/'; 

Go back into your Dashboard and check to see if you now see a 10.0.0-B1 is available. If you do not see it, clear your cache and refresh the page.

If you see the option, Click to upgrade to 10.0.0-B1. Your modules will again try to update and this time, it should be successful. 


IMPORTANT: Your cron job must be setup properly in order for the upgrade to occur. If you do not have access to your cron job setup, you will need to consult with your hosting company. If you do have access to your cron job setup, you should be able to tell how often the cron job runs. This will help you know when the upgrade should be completed as well as receiving the email once it is done. 

You can check to see when your cron job last ran by going into Studio > Dashboard > click the arrow next to Server Tools and click Server Audit. Scroll down until you see  Last cron jobs execution 

You can also force your cron job to run by doing the following (need FTP access):

- Go into your /periodic folder via FTP

- rename your .htaccess file to something like .htaccess.bak

- In your browser, go to this URL:  http://www.mysite.com/periodic/cron.php or use https:// if you are running SSL. This page will be blank BUT you will see that it looks like it is "loading". This is expected. Once finishes spinning, you will know it finished. Go back into your Dashboard and see if the Upgrade was successful. 

- Remember to remove the .bak after you have tested. 

EDIT 6/27/2019: Adding this info since some member have ran into the issue where they could not do the Upgrade due to files being modified

If you have very minor modifications and you want update script to overwrite it then you can enable the following setting:
Studio > Settings > System > Site Settings > Force auto-update, even if some files were modified
it will make updates to work if less than 5% of files are modified.

If more than 5% of files are modified then it's better to merge changes manually to avoid problems with the update.

Another option if more than 5% of files are modified is to overwrite any changes you've made in source code, then you need to change the following line in inc/classes/BxDolInstallerUtils.php file:

define('BX_FORCE_AUTOUPDATE_MAX_CHANGED_FILES_PERCENT', 0.05);

to:

define('BX_FORCE_AUTOUPDATE_MAX_CHANGED_FILES_PERCENT', 1.00);

Then try to upgrade UNA or modules as usual.
