Big Dave,

On Tapatalk, the Notifications aren't working anymore. Anyone else have this?

When did they stop working? We're a few versions off from the latest version and honestly I'm skiddish about doing the upgrade until I have plenty of time for if something goes wrong. I started out to apply it one day and it said that I needed to put the latest phpbb3 on here first.

No problem I thought, but then everything crashed badly.

Add-ins on phpbb3 don't work like they do on Wordpress, I found out. On Wordpress, an add-in essentially overrides a function of the CMS. So if Wordpress has a function called "PrintStuff", you can create your own "PrintStuff" function and then your's gets called instead of the Wordpress one. Not so with phpbb3. With phpbb3, add-ins modify the actual phpbb3 code files. So then when you do an update, you're obliterating your add-in-modified files with original ones. But then if your add-in has something, like, say, a function call in a master include file to a function that no longer exists, then your entire site crashes when you do the upgrade. So you essentially have to uninstall all of your add-ins, do the upgrade, then reinstall them.

So I haven't wanted to tempt fate with upgrading Tapatalk until I can do it late night and have plenty of time (no work the next morning) in case something goes wrong.


Prolly stopped working a month ago, but that's a bit of a guess.

Yeah, I was dumbfounded when I saw how it works. The add-in that completely crashed the site was the one that handles timezones correctly. So I had to go in and remove where it was calling some function (which no longer exists) from a config file. Then, once that was done, the site would load, but not display properly because the add-in was half there.

So I uninstalled the add-in and it wasn't able to do it automatically because the search/replace that it was trying to do failed (since what it was searching for to remove itself had already been removed by virtue of me upgrading). So it brought up a screen showing me all of the search/replaces it was trying to do. I was stunned that phpbb3 add-ins work like that.


not really an ad-in, more like a an overwrite.
