I'm just setting up a new blog in SS3 and have found an odd problem.
I'm using the current github version of the Blog module and SS 3.03
If I create a new blog entry through the blog screens, the author and date fields don't appear when the blog entry is published. If I go into the admin screens and look at the same blog entry, the author and date fields are populated. Publishing from the admin screens means the fields then appear on the blog pages.
If I look at the MySQL data, the BlogEntry table has data in the author and date fields but the BlogEntry_Live table has NULL in those fields. Publishing through the admin screens populates the BlogEntry_Live table entries.
Is this a general bug? Or just caused by something I have screwed up? More importantly, is there a fix?
I have started again with a clean install of SS 3.03 along with the blog master from Github, Widgets(v0.1) from the modules list,along with userforms, recaptcha and spamprotection (all SS 3 compatible versions).
The end result is the same:
The author and date do not display if the entry is created through the blog screens.
The content entry field is also a straight textarea. Despite
appearing in the _config.php file
It does not translate BBcode either.
Bugger - I was hoping this new site could be done before Christmas. No it looks like I have some digging around blog source code to find a fix.
I have just installed blog (master branch) with ss 3.1.1.
I encountered the author and date fields not updating, and amended as suggested by Bruce B, but in cms the post is marked as deleted from draft. Also Front end form entry does not allow paragraphs. Allowing wysiwyg in config seems to make no difference. I have to admit I am no great php coder. Anybody out there who has overcome these problems?
