The Foe Feature is not Working

Pro Admin The Foe Feature is not Working

Post by RedMomma5 on February 9th 2013, 2:42 am

I have a member who reported the "Foe" feature found in friends/foes of your profile doesn't work to block posts from view. I had a couple of other members who tested it and reported the same thing. Is there any way I can get this fixed so that it will work again?

If you need my website's address, please let me know.

Thank you.

I have the foes/friends management turned on. I have always had it this way. The foe feature stopped working for some reason and I made no changes.

I am wondering if other sites are experiencing this as well or if it is limited to my site only. Has Forumotion decided to discontinue this? Could it be due to the recent improvements they made that caused it to quit working? I hope someone has the answer.

Hello, I am still wondering about this and why we do not have a foe feature that is operable. Is there an Admin or Mod that can answer this question?

Do you need the address of my website? I will be happy to supply it but did not want to do so unless requested as I know that you don't want people advertising their sites in the "Help" area.

Again, thank you in advance.

Thank you, Sanket. I have no idea if this could be of interest or not but I have a member who said today that he thinks we have a "hacker". I asked him how so and he replied that we have "ports" under attack. I do not know how he would have access to this kind of info and it may be nothing (as well as incorrect).

My site's address is: http://crimsoncafe.forumotion.com/

It is closed to view of anyone who is not a member (other than the Welcome forum).

I appreciate your response as a member again inquired today about the foe feature. I realize that you are very busy here and it takes time to respond to everyone with answers. Smile

Hello,

You've got only one personalized template and it is causing this error Smile

You can see it easily by forcing the default templates :
Display >> Templates >> General >> Force the default templates : Yes.

You need to modify or remove this template Wink

Leeloo, this custom template has been in place since April. I set it up to remove the negative vote from the forum and used instructions that were given here to modify it. The negative vote was removed and the "foe feature" continued to work until about the beginning of this month (February was when it was reported by a member that it wasn't working).

I do not want to reinstate the negative vote feature. Is it the upgrades that were done that caused this problem with the template? If so, I will just go without the "foe feature" in order to retain only allowing positive votes.

Please let me know if there is a way to have both still.

Thank you.

Did you read all the announcements about the updates?

http://help.forumotion.com/t120005-new-forumotion-s-improvements-d
Important note:

There's an important note to take into account concerning this possibility to hide automatically messages from banned members :

Admins which have personalized templates, have to bring the following changes to their templates to benefit from this improvement.

Important note:

There's an important note to take into account about the toolbar display:

Admins which have forums in the versions PhpBB2 & PunBB with the template overall_header personalized, must absolutely be sure that the tag {HOSTING_JS} between the 2 tags <head>...</head>is existing in the template so that the toolbar can be functional.

Yes, I read the announcements about the updates SLGray but I have not implemented any of those changes and so I'm not sure why the updates should affect my site.

Hi,

As there's been an update that has affected the template necessary for it to work please review this post:
=> http://help.forumotion.com/t120005-new-forumotion-s-improvements-d#789234

All you need to do is either replace the codes or add them in.
If the template is at default, the update was automatic :-)

The updates weren't supposed to work if you have a custom template. I did not implement any updates. The custom template should not need changes if I don't wish to add the update. The changes should not have affected the "foe feature" as this has nothing to do with the updates that were done nor were custom templates included in the update. I have done nothing to cause the "foe feature" to quit working. I had both the "foe feature" and the "only vote positive" in place before and both were working. I would like to know if this is still possible without reverting back to the original template which would cancel the only vote positive. I do not care if banned members messages are hidden or not. I delete members messages who are no longer active on my forum.

I think Leeloo might be able to answer if it's possible to have both; otherwise I will just forgo having the "foe feature" since keeping the "negative vote" off my forum is more important to the members as a whole.

Thanks for your attempt to assist. Smile

Hello, still wondering if there is a way to have both the foe feature and not have to reinstate the negative vote.

If not, I will continue without the foe feature.

Thank you.
