ianm I didn't even realize I had turned it off! 😅 . I just turned it on and the site is back to normal except that there is no Private Discussions in the session dropdown (I'm guessing this is the space above the tags).
therealsujitk I'm now seeing the dropdown correctly on your site 🙂
therealsujitk I'm guessing this is the space above the tags
No, it's under the profile on the top right. Though I think that (above tags) would be an even better position.
ianm I got it! I didn't know what the session drop down was until now. I just thought it would make sense to place private discussions here:
hrvoje_hr Yeah thanks!
hrvoje_hr Though I think that (above tags) would be an even better position.
That is true, but it would be odd if when the option is selected it takes you to your profile. So I think for now this is better unless in future it is decided to have a page like the discussion page except for private discussions.
ianm Sorry for wasting so much of your time.
therealsujitk Not a problem! It's actually an oversight on my part when making these changes, so thank you very much for raising the issue and helping to solve it!
Credit to @hrvoje_hr for finding the exact reason so quickly too! 🙂
composer require fof/byobu
php flarum migrate
php flarum cache:clear

ianm Bazaar still has to get refreshed... I will try this soon. Just a point to note though, removing the option completely will show the 'Private Discussion' option to everyone even if the admin of the forum doesn't intend to let non-admins use private discussions (take Discuss for example). You don't have to add this feature back now (or ever) but I thought I'd just bring this up.
therealsujitk perhaps a future improvement is to add a permission check before adding the page and session dropdown link.
I'll give it some thought on the best way to handle this
I just installed this extension and upon enabling it I'm presented with this...
Sooo... is this a test? Should I type something? lol
ScottBeeson yes, it was a fast workaround for an issue with the previous release.
You can safely ignore that for now, it’s being worked on as we speak 🙂
Okay, another question (that may already have been answered, sorry)...
I can't seem to find a way to change the "recipients" at post time. It seems I can only change them after I post. Am I missing something?
ScottBeeson you’ll see a ‘recipients’ label to the left of the private discussion title. Tap that, and you can add or remove any recipients as required.
What do you mean "private discussion title"? I'm just clicking "Start Discussion". Is there different way to start a private discussion that I'm missing?
ScottBeeson Yes, private discussions are created from the user profile page. Click on your username (top right), select 'Private Discussions', then 'Start a Private Discussion'
SilverPoplar most likely this is due to a mis-configured email setup. Check your mail settings in /admin
After updating get this error when trying to create or reply to Private Discussion (by the way new discussion or reply arrives anyway):
"Oops! Something went wrong. Please reload the page and try again."
p.s. Replying in or creating common discussion is ok
I'm just playing on localhost with flarum, so email is not configured.
ianm Just curious... Did you remove the previous feature if selecting recipients on clicking Start a Discussion? Or is this an error.
SilverPoplar I'd suggest setting the mail driver to log in that case 🙂
SilverPoplar you can set email driver to log on localhost, so that emails are written to logs and don't error.
