2012-07-31 22:33:48 -0500 commented answer broken rss <link>

Interestingly, it got fixed by giving 'http' prefix in settings/QA_SITE_SETTINGS/'Base URL for your Q&A forum, must start with http or https'. Thanks.

2012-07-31 22:17:50 -0500 commented answer Where to set APP_URL?

'live_settings' mean mysite.com/settings ? I cant find 'forum parameters and urls' there. Hence can't find APP_URL. Any help?

2012-07-29 23:41:52 -0500 commented answer question id and unicode title slug changed after askbot migration

Yes its not possible for you to understand my language :). You mean, whether both links point to the same question? Yes. But the meaning of the news url-string doesn't make any sense, as lots of characters missing from the question title.

  1. I sent email in your gmail account with the examples. Many thanks for your investigation. 2. Least, could you please show me some pointers in the code (if not possible to create a new branch with the fix), where to change, just to fix the 'old id' issue for myself?
2012-07-29 22:23:21 -0500 commented answer broken rss <link>

Thanks. Yes, I see this working in askbot. Anyway, "http://" prefix isn't inside my /admin/sites/ setting.

2012-07-29 22:19:47 -0500 commented answer question id and unicode title slug changed after askbot migration

Yes, Evgeny. Redirects work. No broken link. (But is not there any way keeping the original id's? :-( ). 2. And yes, slugs are different (and wrong.)

2012-07-29 22:15:10 -0500 asked a question broken rss <link>

I migrated to askbot v43 from v36. Previously rss feed in the home page didn't work. After migration it generates the feed, but with a bug. The site address is duplicated in <link>. E.g. for the site example.com, it shows up <link>http://example.comexample.com//question/281/ ....

This is ok with the guid generation. (Properly shows <guid>example.com//question/276/ ...)

Many thanks, Evgeny. More updates about the issue, 1. previous links do work, i.e. redirects to the new link with new question id; 2. the unicode string for the question title is different(with the previous link) and wrong now.

2012-07-29 03:21:35 -0500 commented answer question id and unicode title slug changed after askbot migration

I checked. But previous links dont work. Question ids are not same and no redirection takes place :( Anything to specify in settings.py? But isn't there any way to keep the original question ids as it was?

2012-07-28 23:26:34 -0500 asked a question question id and unicode title slug changed after askbot migration

Hi all,

I updated askbot-devel from version34 to version 43, re-installed, and then run migration, everything worked fine, but the question id for each question got changed. Something like for 150 previous posts, the first one got 151, the 100th one got 250.

May be in my postgres database, there is some place I've to reset any sequence from where the question gets the id.

Any help much appreciated. All of my sites previous links posted in various places dont' work now :(

Edit: I'm using ALLOW_UNICODE_SLUGS = True. The unicode string for the question title is different(with the previous link) and wrong now. Before migration it was ok (e.g. similar with the question title)

2012-07-15 19:38:10 -0500 asked a question Internal server error (jinja error?)

Hi community!

I had askbot running for months, but now I started getting 500 internal error. I'm stuck with the issues for days now. Please suggest if I'm missing anything (In case you recommend a re-installation, could you point me to some link which helps reinstalling askbot - keeping all my data/settings intact)

The full track-back is here,

2012-07-03 21:53:03 -0500 asked a question facebook/twitter share fails with unicode url

If question/answer title is unicode, which sets the url unicode - then, when I try to share with facebook/twitter it fails.

For example, the api request to twitter changes to, http://twitter.com/share?url=undefined&ref=twitbtn&text=%u0975 ...... and twitter sends 'This webpage is not found'

Is this an issue with askbot?

2012-07-03 21:35:12 -0500 asked a question wmd editor - unicode support

Hi, I see this question/answer editor as a wmd js plugin. Does it support unicode writing? If not, how can I achieve that?

2012-01-02 08:56:29 -0500 asked a question live-settings value change inconsitency

Regarding changing something in '/settings/', I face a very strange issue. I change something (i.e. logo), then save it, but the change doesn't take effect immediately.

  • In the server side '/settings', the change doesn't showup (it shows the previous), and trying to re-edit leads to error.

  • Interestingly in the browser side, cache refresh (with cmd+R) shows up the change (new logo), but with another refresh goes back to previous state (i.e. previous logo), and this continues with each alternate 'refresh'

Anyway, after changing something in the /settings, and immediately after restarting the server solves this inconsistency. Could you point me to any simple solution/workout?

2011-12-28 11:30:59 -0500 commented answer url gets separated with space instead of hyphen

Ohh - Thanks! You mean just fetching the latest code NOW from github would solve the issue?

2011-12-28 11:25:28 -0500 commented answer sitemap.xml is using example.com

Yes - restarting the app solved the problem. Many thanks.

2011-12-28 10:59:28 -0500 asked a question url gets separated with space instead of hyphen

For a question with title, 'this is question', I find my url as '/this%20is%20question' or '/this is question', but you know, what we expect is '/this-is-question'

I believe this is a configuration issue - any suggestion?

2011-12-28 10:46:13 -0500 commented answer sitemap.xml is using example.com

I tried with your solution, i.e. changing 'example.com' to my domain name - but the /sitemap.xml still shows links with example.com. Pls help.

2011-12-17 07:35:29 -0500 commented question Re-installing askbot - skin css

running 'python2.6 setup.py clean --all' and then installing again seems to have solved the problem. Is there any better approach to do, before re-installing askbot?

2011-12-17 05:02:42 -0500 asked a question Re-installing askbot - skin css

I updated askbot-devel for the new skin - using, http://askbot.org/doc/git.html.

and then run python2.6 setup.py install in my production in webfaction (and changed required stuffs in settings.py of forum).

Now, the question page's css is broken (the right side bar items move at bottom) - anyway, this doesn't break locally.

I supposed I need to clean the installation (in site-package) - that's what made the css messy - I run python2.6 setup.py clean - but no luck.

Any suggestions much appreciated

2011-12-17 04:17:08 -0500 commented answer 'no items in counter'

Yes! I used a different language - that which you don't provide by default - and that didn't have the translation for this text. I think this translation text is new in the recent skin. Many thanks.

2011-12-16 06:04:12 -0500 asked a question 'no items in counter'

In /questions page, at the right of each question, instead of 'no' votes or 'no' answers, or no views - I get the text 'no items in counter'. Any clue how to fix it?

2011-11-25 08:33:24 -0500 commented answer unicode issue in tag and url

Yes, Evgeny!!! The unicode title is showing up in the url as it is - as soon as I changed in project's settings.py. So many thanks!!

2011-11-25 08:28:40 -0500 commented answer unicode issue in tag and url

About not seeing the unicode word in chrome, I'm not sure if that's an chrome issue (its working in my chrome). I just checked with a freshly installed firefox, it shows the characters properly there, but can't insert as tag still.

2011-11-25 08:25:10 -0500 commented answer unicode issue in tag and url

I set ALLOWUNICODESLUGS=True in askbot-devel/askbot/setup-templates/settings.py, then run 'python setup.py develop', restarted the server. But still url is not in unicode.

2011-11-25 08:06:07 -0500 commented answer unicode issue in tag and url

thanks again. I'm working with mainly Bengali (that word was Hindi, anyway). Please check with a sample word in Bengali, বাংলাদেশ (this is the name of the country, Bangladesh)

2011-11-25 07:57:00 -0500 commented answer unicode issue in tag and url

Many Thanks. for the unicode part in url - could you please point me to the code I've to change, unless you dont' come up with the experimental feature shortly. For the tag - my example is with a Hindi word - u mean not all the characters in that word are Unicode?
