    about Compose Message form, cannot use tab key after typed on Sent to fill, to Subject fill ,it is clear and reverse to Start typing…

  6. Posted August 4, 2011 at 5:37 am | Permalink

    I really feel that the line break issues should be fixed in the feed posts, comments and profile text area fields (like About Me).

    Some people tend to copy/paste stuff from other social sites and ending messed up.

    As a long time client of SE I sure hope 4.1.7 brings some major fixes and changes cuz PhpFox3 beta comes out this month and their beta alone looks like it blows away anything you currently have. They have everything and more included which already should be included in SE so we dont always have to depend on 3rd party developers and have everything break when ever and update to SE is released…

    And if 4.1.7 is the same old – same old then i'm finally given up on SE and willing to cut my losses and just move to PhpFox3 and I think a lot of other users will too…

    We have fixed the video embedding issue that was present in 4.1.6: Blogs can now support youtube embed using the media button again. The admin will need to enable iframes as allowed HTML.

    Well for one have you looked at their new forum? It's way more user friendly than yours is and a lot of your clients sites are built around forums…The way yours is laid out now its hard to tell whats new posts there are…

    #2 – Even something as simple as having a friends bday notification makes a big difference to a social site and makes it more interactive for everyone…SE3 had some thing along this way…Why not SE4?

    There's more too but I wont go into detail here…If some night you would like to send you my opinion then I would be happy too…

    All in all PhpFox3 looks like its going to be a lot more user friendly and more professional looking they was SE3 was starting to become…Because SE3 was a great script and you really had something going with it….It only needed to be tweaked to make it the best social script every….But instead you went and redid the whole thing again and broke something that wasnt broke….I dont know maybe you had to redo it from a programmers side of things…. But for your clients who have stuck by your side all these years SE4 has been nothing but a nightmare for us :(

    Please fix also the bug in the storage system that we are experiencing for many days now. The system got stuck ("File are currently being transferred. 0% complete.") after we tried to transfer all data from Amazon S3 back to the local storage.

    Please, please fix this. Maybe you should also add a "Stop current transfer process"-button in order to cancel current transfer processes. Or just cancel all processes by means of the upcoming update.

    Due to this bug we are no longer able to work with the storage system.

    Hope to see improved security. Don't want to have members waiting for approval so we're stuck with the spam and banning tools which can't stop our chinese friends :)

    Just upgraded to a SSL connection for more security for personal data and want the recaptcha now.
    Getting an error message every time because of unsafe scripts. No problem when all http are changed to https, can't find the right folder to this one

    Anyone? It's a business network so security is important.

    I say with all the reasonable bugs available, SE is still cool.
    Just compare where we were with ver 4.0 and where we are right now with ver 4.1.6
    Remember all other applications have also bugs, they're not perfect. Visit their forums & u will see what am talking about…
    Beside the speed & optimization, i have no other requests.

    Every good thing needs time.
    Looking forward for 4.1.7

    Posted August 5, 2011 at 3:12 pm | Permalink

    I'm still on 4.14 so if any of these have changed in a more recent version I apologize, but here's what I feel is needed:


    SE3 seemed to have a bit more features in this regard, since we could ban email addresses in addition to IP's. It would be great to be able to ban an entire range of IP's easily via the Admin panel, so we can keep out most of the Chinese/Russian spambots that come through

    I just had a spammer sign-up and post a bunch of junky links in our forum threads. After deleting this users account and banning their IP address, I still had to manually click through the 10 threads they spammed and delete each of their posts individually.

    A "clean & remove" feature where we can one-click ban a user AND wipe out any content they've created would be a great feature.


    We can restrict the number of impressions at the top level (i.e. the 125×125 block) but it would be more useful to be able to set these restrictions at the individual ad level.

    That way we can sell an ad to Company A that goes into Ad Block 1 that has 100,000 impressions purchased. And another to Company B, also in Ad Block 1, that has 25,000 views, etc.


    What's great about SE is that we can have a Facebook with features Facebook doesn't have in place (such as forums).

    We love our forum because it permits us to have a lot of additional content picked up by Google.

    But we really need some features present in even free forum software. The biggest feature we're requesting is a better method of informing users of new/unread posts.

    Right now there's an icon that changes in the forum to reflect read/unread. But if you have 10 forum sections, the only way members can see all unread threads is to click through to 10 different sections to do so.

    This extra work discourages people from using the forum, killing our engagement.

    A simple link in the forum for "new/unread posts" where our members can view the content from multiple forum sections all on one page would go a long way towards solving this.

    I think SE is great. There are things that need fix of course and we do hope we can have new features. But I think that speed and the use of ajax is a must that need to be look into.

    I have less than a 100 sign in a day and I had to double servers power. I can't imagine what it will be like when I do get some real traffic. How much money will I need to keep up?

    @Phillip Thanks for the suggestion!

    @Anthony V4.1.7 will include support for banning a range of IP addresses. Deleting the user using the admin panel should remove their contents. Banning a user will prevent them from commenting further, but will not remove their contents.

    I would like to see what the cost is for SE networks for server space per month compared to how many users a network caters to. I keep hearing that SE is slow and it gets to a point where site owners are spending so much money on speed and server space because the SE platform cannot handle the job.

    Owners of SE…. can we get some data on this? I am building my site but have yet to launch for fear that I wont have enough money pay for adequate server speeds if my site gets say 10000 users overnight. Please offer some data on this if you can.
    Thank you!

  43. Posted August 6, 2011 at 12:52 am | Permalink

    Hello Mara,

    in order to speed up SE,

    1) The style sheet file goes on increasing as we add new plugins and everything loads on every page refresh, so its better to use same elements in every plugin and reduce the over all size of style sheet file (or) load required style sheet on required plugin pages only and have a common elements for similar pages.

    I thought of doing this but with this monthly or bi-monthly it becomes a difficult process.

    2) and like wise images

    3) Also another option we have is to load js files from sub domain (but will it cache the files is loaded from)

    4) AND MOST IMPORTANTLY we should have a forum/ community dedicated and supported by official se team.

    I switched the Task Scheduler from cURL to Javascript and started the Job Queue manually. The storage transfer works now.

    However, I don't know why I was able to upload/transfer the files to Amazon S3 via cURL but not vice versa. And there have been no changes to the system.

    Btw, are there any disadvantages using Javascript instead of cURL for the Job Queue?

    Thanks again for your hints and sorry for any inconvenience.

    I have requesting for better security from last 4 years and I see small efforts as well, but frankly there is nothing in way for bots. They sign up one or other way and post blogs entries.
    This leaves me no option, but to quit with Social Engine.

    Seriously man, why not some serious actions about security problems?

    Posted August 8, 2011 at 10:56 am | Permalink


    Thanks for the update on the banning tools. How about the other suggestions I mentioned?


    Right now if I create a 728×90 footer ad zone I can specify that ad zone has X number of impressions allowed, or ends on a certain date. But that is backwards.

    Because I may have 20 advertisers in that one zone, and they may all have different numbers of impressions or ending dates. We need to be able to create the ad zones and then set the number of impressions or end dates for each individual ad within that zone.


    My community absolutely needs a "new/unread posts" page in the forum where content from all forum topics is pooled for easy viewing. It's been available in extremely basic forum software for so many years now and I get asked everyday when we're going to add it.

    My forum had over 40,000 posts when we were using a 3rd party forum plugin for SE3 (purchased before your company began offering a forum module) and it was great. But they didn't have that plugin anymore for SE4 so we switched to your forum software and now our forums are dead.

    That's losing us a lot of user engagement plus valuable content that would otherwise appear in Google. BEGGING you guys for this simple addition!

    I still continue to beg you to fix the migration script where it works correctly and completely. I am told each release it is fixed, but you do not test it, because parts of it clearly do not work. Charlotte is very aware that I have been trying to upgrade from V3 to V4 for over 5 months now and it still cannot happen because the migration script does not work. Charlotte told me to use V4.0.5 (of which she sent to me) and use the migration script then upgrade to the current version of SE, well guess what, the link to click on the migration section does not work in V4.0.5 and I tried to contact Charlotte back to let her know and someone who handles emails with SE provided absolutely no help. So please, this is for sure over my 10th time in asking you to fix the migration script so it fully works.

    @Robbie and those asking for a list of features in v4.1.7, here you are:

    – We've made some changes to speed up the code.
    – Twitter & Facebook sign up
    – Javascript based actions (Mootools was updated)
    – Ability to Enable / Disable different plugins after installation.
    – "Test" payment gateway. A new payment gateway that allows admins to test their payment plans.
    – Error code page now looks better 
    – Better checking if Event & Group widgets existing on pages during upgrade
    – Theme chooser widget
    – Better count of ad views/clicks
    – Code refinement of checking if sender_photo & recipient_photo exists
    – Deleting posts in forums now cannot get a negative count
    – Can now Ban IP ranges. Cannot ban your own IP address
    – Fixes redirecting issues when deleting messages
    – Messaging privacy options fix
    – Blog can now support youtube embed using the media button again. The admins needs to allow iframes as allowed HTML with their own discretion . 
    – Updated migration code
    – Fixes issue with saving default email notifications when the plugin name contains a '/' (replaces non alphanumeric values with '-')
    – Mail can be send by passing user_ids

We NEED unread/read notifications for forums, ability to delete messages more easily, speed needs to be dramatically improved, increase use of AJAX, better handling of HTML coding for blogs, better handling of imported pictures/albums, addition of gateway, and I'm sure many others…

    1: the notification updates, if you open the update in new tab it still marked us unread update

    2: the notification updates, if user1, user2, user3 commented on post1, the updated must be user1, user2 and user3 commented on your post1, instead of user1 commented on you post 1, user 2 commented on your post 1, user3 commented on your post1

    3: if you comment on photo or a video from activity feed the comment doesn't appear on the photo's or video's page it self, they are seperated

    @Ahmad, Reyan, BN Thank you very much for your suggestions. These have all been added to our list of requests. However, we are not a custom development firm, and unfortunately cannot create every requested feature on demand. SocialEngine features 100% unencrypted source code so that you may add custom features as you wish. We do take all of your suggestions into account when choosing features for each new version, however we felt that speed optimisations and the other listed items were most important for this particular version.

    @Mara, I know I can add custom features as I wish, but every new version you release will delete my features, so it's better that you improve your script and add this features, and the 3 things I requested are not new features, they are just fix for old features, and I feel that solving them is easy for your team, at all there is no time to discuss, it's already 10 august in my country, and I am waiting for your new version, I wish it will deserve the money to buy it, if it will be disappointing I will keep use illegal version and wait for 4.1.8

    I must admit i like the script very much but i can see that phpfox3 is certainly doing some great stuff as well, and seem to have really put in a big effort .. I would say look at what they have done and do as much of that as posible. In your next upgrade i to thought maybe there would be more in this upgrade. Surpose speed is very important and if it works then its worth it :) but small feature ad-ons make the world of difference for us who promote these sites to our users .

    Also let me say , i think the foums really need some fast urgent action, so users can at least add youtube videos easy just like in a post as they are use to ..
    I also feel the comments section should be urgently fixed and made longer for users to post larger comments and as mentioned below by "ibo" stop the comments from being cut in half without warning.. These to me seem like very important fixs.

    I really believe you have a great chance here to be a leader in the market but you Must treat these next two months as very important and really look into the Very good upgrades of your competion, they certainly lifted the bar .. please be sure to keep up with them, its a close race . So we dont fall behind as site owners :)

    I hope to start another social network soon and will be looking very closly at your next upgrade in 2 months to see how much work is going in to future dev of this script, i really hope you're going to be putting all posible efforts into this next upgrade for your users , because im sure i speak for many .. There were needs for more urgent upgrades this time around that i think we were expecting for granted..

    @Ajit Thanks for the suggestion – We have been considering making some video tutorials. Which features would you most like to see a video for?

    @Jack / Andre Thanks for your suggestions! These have been added to our list of feature requests.

    @Rob Thanks very much for your comments and your loyalty. :-) I will definitely bring up the forums issue at our next meeting to discuss new features. I believe there was a bug with posting videos that has been fixed in this version.

    I agree with Rob. The next two months could be a make or break for SocialEngine. I am hesitant to buy another license because of the speed, lack of very basic features in the core scripts, limited layout in the plugins, poor forum plugin. Surely, there is no point of having so many widgets without layouts in the plugins. The speed bug is killing off sites.

    @Dani Thanks for your comments. Version 4.1.7 does include some speed optimisations. We are working on a layout feature for the plugins for a future version.

    @Vinod You can download version 4.1.7 from the client login area. Here is a tutorial on performing upgrades: We recommend taking a backup before beginning this process.

    the copy and paste do not work in the forum, blogs etc in browsers IE, maxthon, chrome, opera, etc. it only works on firefox.

    I believe the same question has been asked by someone else last month, but I cannot see the answer to it.
    does this happen to anybody else?
