default addons/page-forum.php file on plugin repository has been patched to resolve definitively this issue, as said above, it substitute this line of code:

Code: Select all

var wp_u_logged = ".$current_user->ID.";
with this:

Code: Select all

var wp_u_logged = ".get_current_user_id().";
i assume the wrong result may was given by the previous code, on different Php versions. It do not return the same into my tests

open page-forum.php and where this line:

Code: Select all

var wp_u_logged = ".$current_user->ID.";
change with this:

Code: Select all

var wp_u_logged = ".get_current_user_id().";
it is better to change this line by default because it return a strange result i see (and fortunately it is was not affecting any security issue. Imagine a result that should be 0 that return 1 instead) WoW
Please let know asap

mhh ... i see a strange thing into your page forum, that let me think php versions can may interfere, so a fix should be applied maybe-
Your wp, i see that even if my user is not logged in, the function wp_get_current_user(); return 1.
This cause the loop, because the user is not really logged instead into phpBB, nor in wp. Then the iframe loop.
let me check the solution

A guildie pointed out to me that the site (forum) seems to be back on a reload loop after the design changes, so kind of back to square one.
Got an idea about what's going on there?

As the site is now, when not logged in.

-- Just some sizing issues
So you may will take a look into this to resolve definitively any resizer issue

I've updated the theme we're using (Hestia), which was a couple of versions behind - mainly due to my changes - However, the "Gutenberg" thing was kind of broke, so had to :p

Forum looks, in my opinion, better now, as in: it looks more like it belongs to the page -- Just some sizing issues, it's cutting off the bottom of the forum. I'll look into that later, it's about time I get some sleep :P

I'll look into the js error when I get back up.

Thanks for the help!

Ehy! Just gave a try, i registered alias. All seem to work perfect, by the way, i see a js error on console, coming out into your wordpress theme header, a js function that cause this:

Code: Select all

TypeError: document.getElementById(...) is null forum:421:54
but this is NOT the iframe resizer of the plugin, it is from your wp theme, you should resolve this that output into wordpress page-forum causing the js error where dynheight return a null value on page-forum (it output into wordpress header)

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript">
//   reSize Iframe when ever child  calls  it
function resizeIframe(dynheight)
this can be resolved in various ways, first of all may detecting why this function called in this case (on page -forum) return a null value for the passed
dynheight var

Not sure if I see a "Edit" button - So I do apologise for possibly missing it.

Anyhow, I moved the site to - Live now.
Still working on it however. :D

Right! I found / remember some of the reasons behind my changes now.

Atm I've set it up here:

However, the top is missing (menu, lack of some sort of margin-top), as well as just keeping the top layout (gap).
The page loads too far down (auto-scrolls?).
And, the page layout is dropped - the left-side boxes are dropped (Recruitment/Progression).

Which is why I tried to do the iframe idea downstairs, basically just copying the parts into a page (I think I got the idea from somewhere on your site? But it's been so long that I'm unsure now). The iframe idea kept the site's layout, but caused the constant page reloading while not being logged in.

Any ideas, thoughts?

First off - I apologise for the slow slow reply. Been a bit going on.

Anyhow, the code I followed at the time should've been all up-to-date, and I did do the iframeResizer.contentWindow.min.js as well.

Am guessing it might be due to the way I integrated the thing, which is essentially just copying over the iFrame data, as doing the rebuild resulted in the page not working at all - as in, am guessing that the theme I use doesn't quite work with the "normal" way of doing things (Using Hestia).

However, it has been a fair bit of time since last, and you've certainly done some updates, and I've got some time now to work on our new page -- so, I'll mess about with it some, make sure everything is updated to your last codes, and then I'll get back to you - thanks for the replies! :)
