Setting Up Subscriptions - 03/12/17 04:10 PM


We are trying to setup subscriptions and we have setup one called Gas Chat - however when we try and access it via the following URL...


we just get returned to the main forums listing i.e. https://forum.hapai.ie/forums/ubbthreads.php

Any ideas?

I tried to access your site, but I'm getting a database error message.

I found a bug trying to replicate this, under "My Stuff" there is a "Subscriptions" link which will show your users what subscriptions are available and which they belong to, the bug appears to be with a missing form method within the subscriptions.tpl file, find:
<form action="{ubb url="ubb=subscription&id=`$subs[sub].group`"}">

Replace with:
<form method="post" action="{ubb url="ubb=subscription&id=`$subs[sub].group`"}">

The bug should affect anyone with subscriptions since the HTML5 header was added in 7.5.8; HTML5 doesn't seem to want to allow a missing method to work, and since there is no method I guess it just doesn't send data.

The URL of the information to a specific subscription would be either (example ID is 6):
SE Friendly: ubbthreads.php/ubb/subscription/id/6
Non-Friendly: ubbthreads.php?ubb=subscription&id=6

The subscriptions file is the subscription list, the subscription file is for each "about" page, your link has subscriptions with an ID, where did you get this URL?

Thanks Gizmo,

We've replaced the line as you suggested and it's working now.

Sorry - I hand typed that link - my bad - correct link is of course https://forum.hapai.ie/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=subscription&id=6

Site is back up now.
