Digests 3.2.12 released

This release incorporates three major bug fixes, so be sure to update the extension. Details in this topic. You can download it from my digests extension page or GitHub. If getting it from GitHub, place it in the correct place: /ext/phpbbservices/digests. With any extension, update it the correct way: disable it, remove the files, upload the new files to the correct folder, then reenable the extension.

Digests extension approved

It took three years, but the phpBB extension review team has approved my digests extension. Given its complexity, my less than stellar skills at programming in the new extensions architecture, and the long lag time for getting a review, it’s not too surprising that it took so long.

The extension can be found here.

Further support questions should be addressed here.


Digests version 3.2.8 released

See this post on phpbb.com for details.

This version of the extension can be downloaded from my digest extension page or from the GitHub 3.2.8 branch page. When downloading from GitHub, remember that it must be copied into a blank /ext/phpbbservices/digests folder.

Of course disable the current digest extension first then remove the /ext/phpbbservices/digests/* files. Then upload the new version then enable again.

Bug in Digests extension version 3.2.7

This will hit you if a subscriber needs a table of content and you installed version 3.2.7 of the digests extension. What happened was that in cleaning up the code I decided that the assign_vars method should be simplified to use assign_var when only one template variable needs to be connected to a template. Except that the messenger class used for email is a subset of the template class and it doesn’t support the assign_var method. So it fails. You can see the patch here.
