Dolphin 7.0.6 Released! Important service update!

Andrew Boon posted 24th of March 2011 in Dolphin.pro News. 49 comments.

Although we're working on Dolphin 7.1, we keep providing updates for 7.0.x when they are urgent and critical. So is the case today. We highly recommend updating to 7.0.6 as it fixes a number of issues that may seriously impact your sites' operation.

 

Dolphin 7.0.6 update includes:

 

- Security update

- Facebook module didn't work (empty user info was passed)

- Link to android app on Dolphin homepage

- Websites thumbnails in sites module aren't generated automatically - now you need to register your own Access Key and Secret key in Sites module admin settings

- MySQL error was always empty

- Other small fixes

 

 

Download Dolphin 7.0.6

Upgrade Instructions

 

It's a small update, but again, it's highly recommended for any Dolphin-based sites.

It's good to see security-related bugs get a speedy release. Downloading now. I could have sworn I replied to this before...
Andrew Boon
You did, we just fixed the link that was discussed.
prolaznik
No you didn't .....
Uploading now will see how it goes.
mods4dolphin
Great news, keep them coming....
theguypc
This is how it should be done. Great job Boonex.
lworld
downloading now. Will read comments before installing it in case of errors.
dolphin_jay
i've been keeping up with the repo and installed the other night. no problems as of yet.

The obvious question is does the security issue exist in 7.0.4 and backwards or was it just because of the 7.0.5 release.......
jubiijan
What matter does it really make NOW?
Nathan Paton
I'd say it's safe to believe it was present in all previous releases.

I've just upgraded to D7.0.6 (from D7.0.5).

I am getting this: ALTER TABLE `bx_arl_entries` CHANGE `caption` `caption` VARCHAR(100);: Table 'admin_dolph.bx_arl_entries' doesn't exist

What do I need to do to fix this?

Hello!

Do u have installed Articles module from BoonEx or does it have any custom modifications?

Regards
Stuart038
I have now been able to update to D7.0.6. thanks to Modzzz (problem with Boonex 'Articles') thanks Modzzz!

Unfortunately, when in non-member mode the icons do not show up in 'Groups' or 'Articles' these are both web pages generated via the database, is that the cause of the icons not showing in non-member mode?

Stuart

Actually the problem is with Modzzz Ultimate Articles!
Modzzz used the same name for his own module like BoonEx Articles module.
jubiijan
Just updated mine with no errors at all and all the 3. part modules worked. Great!
claude
Can I update directly from 7.0.4 to 7.0.6 ? As I have a custom version ?
DosDawg
claude, i would say you are treading on unstable ground trying to upgrade from .4 --> .6
claude
ok Thx, I'll proceed 7.0.4 -> 7.0.5 -> 7.0.6... more safe

Upgraded, Scripted Manually, Done. Thank you!
How easy is the update and can I do it from my cPanel, Softaculous, or would it be within the Dolphin Admin panel?
kumpleto
I think the Upgrade Instructions should be clear enough that if you follow it strictly (or without breaking it), you'll be very fine and safe with the upgrade ;). Thanks Boonex

Upgraded and running Great!
Thanks,

That was surprisingly easy. One question: do we only get to know about security patches & updates like this if we lurk the forums? Or did I just somehow miss the email notification of this release?
LightWolf
No email notification was sent.
eru
You see the update status in your admin cp... :)

Easy update, working perfect, sofar not probs with 3rd party modules. Thanks.
eru
But still no screenshot by adding a site. I added a key and secret and modul is working but getting no screenshot from the site... Any comments?
lpeet01
Worked great, thanks!

This totally sucks that we have to do an upgrade to get almost nothing.
vedova
Are the thirdy part modules (of all unity developer members) compatible and already upgraded if needed to be?

Good luck with that one best of luck with 3rd party developers. Why don't you ask them.

No kidding. Indeed it does stink with very little upgrade. If you have little or no mods then you might be good to go. Otherwise it's a bummer. We still need to come up with a better upgrade, see more however there will always be those that modify files that will be a problem. So as much as we would like to just click a button to upgrade all those that choose to go out side the traditional will have a problem with something like that. Too bad it wasn't that simple. Some can get by with that but any tweakers (technically speaking) will likely need to manually re-apply some mods and such.

If boonex starts a repository trunk ans asks the mod developers to submit their mods there
and if we can download mods and install from our admin panel itself...
then we can expect a smooth upgrades...
else, slap yourself and wakeup from your nightmares...
JoeWa
Update from 7.0.5 went without a htich. Still no site screenshots despite the key and secret being registered with shrinktheweb.com

No other problems so far - keep up the good work!
AlexT
Make sure that you upgraded to 7.0.6, if it is still not working try to check this:
http://www.shrinktheweb.com/content/updates-03272011-lock-account-enforced.html
But
.....................Speed issue i very Big issue please resolve it ...............
Speed page cache size for facebook is 75 Kb
and cache for Dolphin is 756kb
DarkWarder
i upgrade and after i got error message ---> Fatal error: Call to a member function saveIP() on a non-object in /home/darkwar/public_html/modules/deano/deanos_tools/classes/BxDeanosToolsAlerts.php on line 52 and Fatal error: Call to a member function getClassPrefix() on a non-object in /home/darkwar/public_html/templates/base/scripts/BxBaseSearchResultSharedMedia.php on line 134

how this fix?
dolphin_jay
Contact deano and ask if he updated his tools for 7.0.6 yet. if not give im some time and i am sure he will. or if you had to edit the file BxBaseSearchResultSharedMedia.php to get his tools to work then you will need to find out what is missing.
tomakali
its better that boonex urges every modders who are listed in "Staff Picks" to get ready for 7.1
and test mod compatibility...
tomakali
thanks for the -1
now look down @DarkWarder
This is what the issues faced by newbies...
if Zuckerberg happens to look into this kinda issues for the million apps in FB, FB would be online HELL...
few things has to be defined/solved by "policy" even before the module is developed...
DarkWarder

dolphin_jay
that means you didnt upload all the files in the modules folder then or you have missinf files in the upgrade elsewhere.

Is there a way to keep visitor from being able to view a members profile/page?????
bpowers84
You can modify the menus to only allow registered and logged in users to view profiles etc basically blocking all access for someone who isn't registered the ability to see anything. You can also do this for each block. Just go into the menu settings and click on each one you can check the boxes inside the settings.
рас уж десктоп не работает, может нужно было отделить приложения андроид и айфон от десктопа, а то когда включен весь блок пользователи начинают качать и десктоп тоже, а он не подключается к сайту, приходится городить свой блок для приложений или сделайте возможность включать see more отключать нужные приложения в этом блоке, как например видимость блока для гостей или пользователей

Is there ever going to be access to user info all in one location. In previous versions I found it to be a run around to get user info and ability to get details such as members IP, photo, email address, ect. I found not being able to block or email members from admin back panel a pain when I want to block or email multiple members at the same time. Will version 7.0.6 have more members contact information in one location. I hate not being able to contact mulitple members at the same time being an see more admin. I would also suggest videos made available where to find features/config in admin panel.

Also will dolphin 7.0.6 have more social networks available besides facebook for members to share with? What about a site map that I have read dolphin for some reason didnt have available to list with search engines.

Is there more details on what other issues dolphin 7.0.6 addressess?
Upgraded from .4 to .5 to .6. It was working fine, for a minute.

Now, can't log in as admin. All photos have disappeared throughout the entire site. Only avatar pics in the member area are visible. The placeholder for images seems to be there, no image.

The last two changes made were adding the shrinktheweb info and adjusting one language key.

Can't log in to admin or site!

No captcha image either!

This is beyond frustrating. Not happy in Texas.
Upgrade from .5 to .6 did not work for me.

Here's the problem:

It seems that the upgrade to Dolphin 7.0.6 is causing an issue with the profiles table in my database. In order to have this patch applied without issues you may need to contact an expert local web developer to add the manually for you.

Basically when I upgrade:
I can't log in
All images throughout the site disappear
Captcha images disappear as well, so no password retrieval is allowed

Can anybody help. Boonex, What's see more up?
Hi andrew
