Hi,

I'm trying to understand how FUDforum is sending email to topic or forum subscribers. Because it seems that i've got a trouble in the links provided in the mail sent (/egroupware/blablalba/... without the http://www.toto.com before).
I've found that there is the same problem either i'm using english or french. So i looked inside the iemail.tmpl file in order to change the <a href ...> link but it doesn't work at all (even putting blablabla inside the file to see some jam in the mail)...
I'm running the FUDforum provided with the debian testing egroupware package.
I've tried these :

in iemail.tmpl ,
putting {GVAR: WWW_ROOT} before {TEMPLATE: iemail_body_lnk} => NOT WORKING
putting {GVAR: FULL_ROOT} => also not working

Any advice ?

Thanks.
Cem

FULL_ROOT is not a var, it is used like this: {FULL_ROOT}, but it's only supported in later revisions of the forum. {GVAR: WWW_ROOT} should work fine however.

As you can see before, i've tested this way in the two files :
/usr/share/egroupware/fudforum/setup/base/thm/default/tmpl/iemail.tmpl
/var/lib/egroupware/files/fudforum/work/thm/default/tmpl/iemail.tmpl

But no way to have the correct url in the sent mail to subscribers, i've also looked in translations (in french).

Have i forget something ?

Thanks.

You are looking @ the HTML version of the e-mail, there is a plain-text version that is entirely inside french/msg file.

Ok i've looked inside the msg file specific to french translation, but where are relations with the URL ? As i think the msg file is only a translation so i'm lost Crying or Very Sad

I'm receiving the mail that you can find in attachment.

Is there a template to change this behaviour ? I suppose that if people want to change the way the mail is sent (to add some graphics, ...), there is a way.

Happy to see such quick answers Smile

Hi,

I'm getting exactly the same problem, except I get the text message and the language is English.

Quote:

I thought that adding http://... to
WWW Root:
This is the URL of your forum.

in the Global Configuration would do the trick, but no such luck.

Where do I go from here?

Thanks,

Looks like the sent links are missing the forum URL and only contain the directory path. You can update thing by adding {GVAR: WWW_ROOT} in front of the URLs inside the template.

Ilia,

Thank you so much for your speedy response.

I am a PHP wannabe, I started my computer work with vacuum tube computers and writing machine code and have ever since been adding to the repertoire of languages. PHP is completely new to me however so I will need a little help.

in my /teamDSAO/fudforum/setup/base/www_root/adm/admglobal.php I have a section that is part of the FufForum Global settings admin panel:

<tr class="fieldtopic"><td colspan=2><br><b>Global (do not change these unless you know what you are doing)</b></td></tr>
<[QUESTION_MARK]php
	print_reg_field('WWW Root', 'WWW_ROOT');  = /teamDSAO/fudforum/3814588639/
	print_reg_field('WWW Root (disk path)', 'WWW_ROOT_DISK');  = /home/USRNAM/public_html/teamDSAO/fudforum/3814588639/
	print_reg_field('Data Root', 'DATA_DIR');  = /home/USRNAM/files/fudforum/3814588639/
[QUESTION_MARK]>


this displays (presumably) the contents of $WWW_ROOT, $WWW_ROOT_DISK, $DATA_DIR variables defined in /teamDSAO/fudforum/setup/base/include/GLOBAL.php

The only refernce to WWW_ROOT in /teamDSAO/fudforum/setup/base/thm/default/tmpl/iemail.tmpl is:

{SECTION: iemail_attach_entry file attachment entry row}
<tr>
<td valign="middle"><a class="GenLink" href="{TEMPLATE: iemail_attach_entry_lnk}"><img alt="" src="{GVAR: WWW_ROOT}images/mime/{VAR: v[4]}" /></a></td>
<td><font class="GenText"><b>{MSG: attachment}</b></font> <a class="GenLink" href="{TEMPLATE: iemail_attach_entry_lnk}">{VAR: v[1]}</a><br />
<font class="SmallText">({MSG: size} {VAR: sz}, {MSG: download_counter})</font></td></tr>
{SECTION: END}

I don't know at which stage of the installation the $WWW_ROOT was initialized or where it is kept for certain.
I was able to find "www.foobar.tld" in the phpgw_config table:

config_app config_name   config_value
phpgwapi   hostname      www.foobar.tld
phpgwapi   files_dir     /home/USRNAM/files
phpgwapi   temp_dir      /home/USRNAM/tmp
phpgwapi   webserver_url /teamDSAO

I feel I am so close (this is after all the Application Program Interface area) and yet I can't seem to put it all together.

I hope this gives you some meaningful information if you decide to give me another little push Smile

Cheers!

When you install the forum it creates GLOBALS.php that sets a value for WWW_ROOT. This value should contain the URL to your forum is should be prefixed to all external URLs, such as the ones sent via e-mail.

Ilia,

Thank you very much.

At this stage I'm going to have to take this to the eGroupWare forums because FudForum and Filemanager have some special characteristics regarding ownership and access authorization and when you are running in a hosted environment there is no access to shell commands (I have seen it done through PHP but like I said I'm a newbie at this). I've spoken to Reiner multiple times and I still don't have a clear answer on how to install eGW in a shared environment.

So somewhere in the eGW install process things went wrong and I cannot even look at the contents of GLOBALS.php on the website (because of access authorizations).
The references I took came from the original (Windows) that were uploaded to the site.

I'll keep you posted.

Cheers!

Ilia,

Just one more question before I jump over to eGroupWare forums, please.

I just found the Filemanager in FudForum and was able to D/L a copy of GLOBALS.php which resides in the /files directory outside of /eGW a.k.a. /teamDSAO and found the following:

/***************************************************************************

	$INCLUDE 		         = "/home/USRNAM/files/fudforum/3814588639/include/";
	$WWW_ROOT 		= "http://www.foobar.tld/teamDSAO/fudforum/3814588639/";

	$FORUM_SETTINGS_PATH 	= "/home/USRNAM/files/fudforum/3814588639/cache/";

	$FUD_OPT_1		= 1739519037;
	$FUD_OPT_2		= 544542781;
	$FUD_OPT_3		= 0;



is this what I am supposed to see?

Thanks,

Yes, that is the correct file and it's contains what appears to be correct information.

I am using EGroupware 1.00.006 as well. When I prepend my URL root of Fudforum to $WWW_ROOT in the eGw fudForum admin, the hyperlinks in the email only reference a URI not the fully qualified URL. Changing this setting has no effect on the link in the subscribe email.

Example:
$WWW_ROOT = "http://www.mydomain.tld/teamDSAO/fudforum/3814588639/";


Example:
$WWW_ROOT = "/teamDSAO/fudforum/3814588639/";


When I hardcode my domain prefix in the iemail.tmpl file, the subscribe email link still does not included the full URL, only the URI.

After changing GLOBALS.php you should always rebuild the theme to make the compiled changes take the new values into effect.

Please forgive my ignorance.

What steps do I need to follow to perform this rebuild?

Thanks

Go into the forum's admin control panel, theme manager and you will see the "Rebuild Theme" link.
