  • {OCS}MasterSeal: I know this SB isnt' for support, but I just have a general question. Who would I contact to find out where SP stores its block info? Is it DB driven or files? I searched the site but came up with nothing. probably my fault any insight is appreciated.

Boardnews Block Maximum Characters
« on: August 04, 2010, 05:38:02 PM »
i Just upgrade to 2.0R3 from 1.1.11
and   install
SP Version: 2.3.2

I wanted my Boardnews Block posts  be limited for display just the first 100 characters,  i put in the 'Maximum Characters:' field 100 for a BoardNews block but the full post is displayed anyway.

i was reading this.. i think is not the same issue because i do not need the full post. only 100 first characters.
i hope someone  can help me to fix this.  need to disable sp because the posts is to long for showing on portal... only when this issue was fixed i can put portal again.

Nop, i just update my forum from 1.1.11  to RC3, while upgrading all mods was uninstalled, then i install the SP 2.3.2   and in the portal  all post  displaying full, then i go to administration, In  Maximun Character  put 95 in order to get a short post.. but nothing happen,  because the  full  post displaying.. no matter how many character  put in the maximun character field .

in the forum there are 5000 posts i can t put a cutoff tag to each one.

Hi, after 3 day looking for a solution to this issue.. finally fix it:D
I translate my forum to other server and  Upgrade from 1.1.11 to RC3, then i restore the 1.1.11 database on a fresh installation of 1.1.11, then make the upgrade to 2.0RC3. then i select default theme. and without touch anything else.. and with the 1.1.11 Database upgraded to 2.RC3.  Make a new Database Backup then i make a New and Fresh RC3 Install.. delete database, and restore the backup.  and all issues Fixed.

Thanks so much, 
PD. I order to get work forum again i try others Portals, and i find Simpleportal is the best one. Congratulation for the good job.

I will mark this post at solved. thanks so much.
