    Hi


    There might be a simple solution to this that I'm missing but I am trying to redirect a blog post link to an amended blog post link (my client emailed the wrong blog post url out) I've tried a 301 redirect in the .htaccess file but this isn't working. I've around another 60 301s in the .htaccess file that are working fine but this one isn't. Would you know could this be a perch problem or is it .htaccess and is there a way to fix it?


    Thanks in advance for any help with this.


    Code
    1. Redirect 301 /news-events/post.php?s=small-scale-post-blog-link https://example.co.uk/news-events/post.php?s=small-scale-post-link

    Just a suggestion for the CKeditor plugin. It would be great if when adding a file or image through CKeditor for the user to be able to upload images or files into the assets folder or to be able to choose assets from the assets folder.


    I know the built in editor does this but I think CKeditor is slightly more powerful and depending on what my client needs to be able to do in the text editor I usually find myself having to use CKeditor.

    Recently I've been getting messages from clients asking about being able to create recurring events so that they don't have to enter events which happen each week twice or sometimes 4 times having multiple instances of the same event with just a different date. Would this be something that might be looked at in future?


    Other than that I think the events app works really well.

    That's it working now again. The tech support I spoke to said fileinfo was enabled on the server but when I contacted them today again they said it wasn't enabled, now it's switched on and now it's working. Sorry about that.

    Here's some of the diagnostics. The size of file I'm uploading is 1.9mb


    GD: Yes

    ImageMagick: No

    PHP max upload size: 512M

    PHP max form post size: 512M

    PHP memory limit: 256M

    Total max uploadable file size: 256M

    Resource folder writeable: Yes

    Session timeout: 24 minutes

    Native JSON: Yes

    Filter functions: Yes

    Transliteration functions: Yes

    Ah ok.


    So when adding a pdf asset via a region I either drag and drop the pdf file into the upload box or use the choose file method. Rather than uploading to the asset list it just refreshes but without the uploaded pdf. I've tried adding a pdf via the assets area as well and it's the same thing, once I click submit the page refreshes, but the pdf isn't added to the assets list.

    Just a suggestion for the blog app.


    Could extra functionality be added to the authors part of the blog that allows authors to be added via the blog app instead of having to make them a user in the CMS?


    I've had a couple of clients recently who have one website manager (they upload all the content, mainly blog content) but there are many different authors of the blog posts. Each time they want a new author added it becomes quite time consuming creating a user account, logging in, saving a blog post as that person and then editing their author profile, then deleting that user again. It's particularly time consuming with Paranoid mode is switched on.


    Would really love to see this added.

    Hi


    Recently my client hasn't been able to upload pdfs, image files are fine it's just pdfs and word docs. finfo is enabled on the server so I don't think it's that. I got in touch with my host and they said that there was an error message


    PHP Warning: escapeshellcmd() has been disabled for security reasons in /public_html/perch/core/lib/PerchAuthenticatedUser.class.php on line 135


    They have disabled escapeshellcmd() on the server for security reasons. Is this the reason pdfs now won't upload? If so is there any workaround for this?


    Any help is much appreciated.


    Thanks.
