  • Osei

    i still dont see the apps directory neither the api -_-

    • sebas77

      why do you need an apps directory? I am curious about it.

      • Osei

        so other people can connect apps and websites like you can do it on fb phpfox has a good one

        • sebas77

          it seems a pretty advanced feature

    • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

      This is something we know that everyone wants and we are evaluating how we can best accomodate building these out. Thanks!

      • Osei

        thanks just wanted to know cause im about to re launch my site in a while

      • http://www.facebook.com/MuslimSocialNetworking Mohamed Suliman

        Please tell us do you mean its on the way, please be clear!

  • DQ_NKAdmin

    Feedback: I request one addition; to notify us on the bugs posted by many when they updated to 4.2.8:

    View more not working
    Photo upload problem

    I personally think that it is ok to find bugs, in fact customers reporting them and staying with the product is a very healthy sign of a product. I request that we customers get a one line clarification or confirmation in this regard.

    • sebas77

      I have been informed that View More bug has been fixed already, it is just needed to install 4.2.8 again.

      • saii

        more bugs r fixed and 1000 more are added…y dont u open ur eyes and realise it

    • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

      Thanks for the feedback @DQ_NKAdmin:disqus . How would you like to be notified? Here on the blog in the comment section? A blog post itself or via our newsletter?

      We talk about a lot of these issues internally but we could do a better job at telling you about these issues.

  • Shalom

    Hi SE team, good news :)

    But what about this issue (in 4.2.8)! in activity feed – View More is not working, not on main page and not on profile page. ?!

    • sebas77

      I have been informed it has been fixed already, it is just needed to install 4.2.8 again.

      • Shalom

        @skidpics:disqus @sebas77:disqus Yes, Thanks I updated again, and now all work Ok

    • skidpics

      Reinstall the upgrade as this seems to be working now.. and fixed..

  • Hesborne

    SE team, PHP V4.3.0 will be good news and from this moment, there is time to make it more owesome by including the requests and features we have been crying for. For the 4.3 please include the Apps Directory container and the API, and split the Languages files in order to be able to give certain users the permission to help with the translations (crowd sourced translations) into the many local languages across the globe. Please, fire some gas into the 4.3. We will be patient and waiting. . .

    • Jazzman

      I’m in agreement with these suggestions as well. I just want to add that yes, we would love to have the App directory and the API, but we also need the option to disable them since not every website may have use for them (so nothing hard-coded).

      As for the language translation, that would be my x-mas gift. Having the actual users translate your site is one of the most effective ways of creating user loyalty because it gives them a sense of belonging while broadening your website audience. So yes, please work on that.

      • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

        @jazzman809:disqus & @disqus_2tVj27RqGo:disqus thank you for the suggestions!

        • Jazzman

          Since I read somewhere that you are evaluating how to set up the app directory, here is simple idea. Before hand, I understand I will be receiving some flame comments on this one but this is fine, it is my thought process, independent from what anyone else may think. So here is the idea:

          Why not make develop it as a separate plugin? Whoever wants it can simply buy it. Whoever doesn’t want it can simply move on. Just make it cheap enough so whiners here don’t complaint too much (some of us here just love to do that – I feel like offering some cheese to go with the sometimes :))

          I’m sure not a lot of people here would agree with me on this approach, but I do believe each business is entitled to make a profit for its efforts (it is how I think, period), just the same way we as webmasters try to make a profit with our members.

          Anyway, if you develop it in such a way that other developers can build on top of it, it may open a lot of possibilities for everyone (you, developers, and webmasters like me).

          It’s my thought. Now let the flames flow in :)

          • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

            Thanks again @jazzman809:disqus !

        • Ryan Olson

          question is… will you actually do something with the suggestions?

  • elmaacho

    Good news, SE Team. Much needed features indeed. Is there also anyway to
    address the below issues with Privated Messaging for 4.3:

    -
    Ability to for user to compose and send PMs to all of their friends (and
    select from a list) via a pop window. This currently exists when user
    invite their friends to a group or an event.

    - For list PMs, give the user to opt-out from email notifications as all recipients are notified with each reply.

    Regards.

  • saiirakesh

    Make the “messaging option very easy an intresting” remove the ‘SUBJECT OPTION” and in messages box only there should be an option of history,saved messages,block the messaging option,ect ect

    • sebas77

      yeah the subject is indeed not needed

      • Ryan Olson

        There are a lot of things NOT needed within SE… but we have to deal with it because they are more focused on their new toy SE Cloud and have given up on the people who have spent hundreds of dollars on their PHP version. What makes it worse is when you call them because your support tickets take 2 weeks to even get a response… and the developer tells you “what do you expect for 50$” – it is too bad, SE was a good product a LONG time ago… now it is gone to poop

        • sebas77

          the saddest part is that I cannot even recommend SE anymore to people who ask…Anyway while it is true that 50$ is not much for support, it is also true that with a better politic they could have much more people pay for it!

  • Molecular

    re-sending confirmation e-mail is a plus. It is certainly great news. At this point, I have tons on members with account but not approved. This way I can always re-send another confirmation e-mail.

  • http://twitter.com/HipHopPinz Hip Hop Pinz

    Member proximity search please…..please?

    • Nick Swartz

      Using location profile field rather than a zipcode is a lot more efficient and doesn’t cost you thousands for updated databases.

      • http://twitter.com/mommybrownfans Mommy Brown

        Totally not true….The premade location field is only a text entry field that would only yield too much human input and randomization error (user could enter chicago, chi-town, chi, chitown, etc — what does that help?). There are plenty of geo-ip databases that dont cost anything or are sub-$500 in cost (maxmind is a well respected one for example)

    • http://www.socialengineaddons.com/ SocialEngineAddOns

    • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

      Search in general will be going through an overhaul on with upcoming releases. Thanks @twitter-885577598:disqus

  • elmaacho

    What about plugins? I really need an Friend inviter via Linkedin, FB and other networks and searching friends via gmail, hotmail, aol etc…I’ve seen a few 3rd party but they’re not comptabile with current SE revs and have problems. We need an official Plugin from SE. This would be extremely valuable.

  • SE-Tester

    suggestions:
    - jquery frontend
    - twitter bootstrap theme
    - no inline javascript
    - w3c valid HTML
    - all pages in layout editor

    • Jazzman

      jQuery would be awesome. Although I saw on a previous post that SE wasn’t planning on adding it, so I guess we’re stuck with Moontols :(

      • Michael

        Could be just connect jQuery by default in no conflict mode

    • sebas77

      it would be good to have all the pages in the layout editor, some are still missing!

    • alpinevp

      I agree with all of the above, especially twitter bootstrap.

    • http://twitter.com/chooseyourgovt iWantToBePresident

      Yes, add all pages to the layout editor. It drives me nuts that I can’t modify the layout on the manage and crate pages of the modules, as well as many other pages that have terrible layouts, and nothing can be added or taken away.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1507208140 Bale Zeninho

    lets start with basics.. i would be happy if members could use arrow keys when adding to whom they want to send message…

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1507208140 Bale Zeninho

      steps to reproduce error:
      1) go to yoursite.com/messages/compose
      2) type first letter of your friend (lets say j, and you have friends jack, john, and james)..

      3) try to use up/down to select wanted friend
      4) you wonder why you can’t use arrow keys… And it makes so much sense from user experience…

      Please fix!

      • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

        Is anyone else seeing this error as well? Thanks for bringing this to our attention @facebook-1507208140:disqus

        • http://www.facebook.com/OccupyWallStreet.99Percent Amr Ali Ibrahim

          Ofcourse, everyone who owns SE4. Please add arrow key chiosing.

  • Fred

    Just wanted users to know that I have set up an SE4php forum for help and support matters here: http://se4forum.com. It’s for users with a licensed copy of SEphp

    • sebas77

      thank you, it looks neat, I hope it will be useful as well

    • sebas77

      btw, why did you use Vanilla instead of SE since Vanilla is not free?

    • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

      Cool! Nice work @disqus_ICqctRMRXS:disqus

  • DQ_NKAdmin

    Request for next release: can we view the feed from network separately from friends? Currently friends and net work are clubbed together, I’d like it if the user can have a tab, one for friends and the other for network,

  • elmaacho

    Can you guys fix this annoying bug, if there is no photo in event, classified, album, group widget feeds (recent updates etc), please remove the photo placeholder. It just looks ugly. (Yes I am talking about the annoying photos with heads/head)

  • Flippic

    I would like to consider adding facility to fix right side bar when the user scroll to its bottom. That would need java script to fix with bottom scroll (just like facebook right side bar).

    Thanks

  • sebas77

    I’d like to spend 2 words on optimization. According my engineers, SE has a big margin of optimization regarding SQL queries. Many queries are made on not indexed tables and take up to 5 seconds to run…are you planning this kind of optimization?

  • Alex

    Please integrate search with http://sphinxsearch.com/
    Thanks!

  • skidpics

    Can you guys might possible remove the “This field is hidden and only visible to you and admins:” and just remove it from the users profile listing completely and just make it visible to admins?

    The user doesn’t really need to see this…

    • Molecular

      The user needs to see that to be sure no one else but the user and admin can see it. Other than that user may be very well reluctant to fill out certain things. You should never try to leave the user in doubt. You do not a potential user to turn away for something silly.

  • skidpics

    I don’t see a way to add a link in the TinyMCE editor for announcements.. Please add.

    • Fred

      I can’t believe that something as simple as adding embed link to TinyMCE editor for announcements hasn’t been done yet. WTF? I’m a second rate coder and even I can do that! Come on guys – DO SOMETHING instead of sitting around sipping starbucks – do some freaking coding improvements on sephp!

  • Guest

    Please Bring some privacy options for the profile info………..

    • sebas77

      very good idea

    • http://www.socialengine.com/ Pamela

      That is an excellent suggestion. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will add it to our feature request list.

    • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

      GREAT IDEA!

    • Bedard_Michel

      Ho yess excellent suggestion

    • Edward

      need this ASAP

    Please Bring privacy option for profile info …………………

    AS always.. SE TEAM sucks with SE PHP…. they were gud few years ago but nw they just suck.. This is the most minor update SE TEAM came up with .. and taking such a long time..

    ***** THE MAIN MOTIVE OF SE TEAM IS TO FRUSTRATE SE PHP CLIENT BY DELAYING THE PRODUCT AND THEN FORCE US TO MOVE INTO SE CLOUD. *********

    it says preview but where is the preview??..

    • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

      Hi @disqus_badXf7VNaU:disqus ,

      We appreciate your candid response. What features would you like to see us improve upon?

  • sebas77

    It seems that your “planning ahead” does not work very well http://www.socialengine.com/blog/2012/08/30/se4-roadmap-planning-ahead/ Please marketing person, tell to your boss that his customers are not very happy…where are the following:

    SEO Improvements – Options to add titles to URLs, edit URL text, and provide URL support for non-latin characters. (I need this!)
    Social Sharing Buttons – Integrate additional services for social sharing as we’ve done with Facebook and Twitter. (I do not even know what you exactly mean)
    Notification Revamp – Include additional notification options, display notifications without having to refresh the page, and other improvements. (just half way done)
    Privacy Controls – Develop enhanced, simplified privacy controls for shared items.
    Updated Photo Sharing – Notifications for photo tagging, mass photo editing, and photo importing via attachments.
    Updated Groups – Improvements include new page customization options and support for custom widgets/HTML Blocks.
    Updated Events – Improvements such as a widget for event creation on any page. (Events plugin has a lot of bugs and needs a notification system re-design!)
    Anti-Spam Features – Develop improved settings and features for security and spam prevention.

  • sebas77

    Hi,

    According my engineers it seems to us that most of the feed related code appears to be a “work in progress”. It is also true that some of the feed related features have not be released yet. Are they planned?
    We also noticed some bugs on the comments order on classified post.

  • Aeroaiei Cristian

    Country/City Profile plugin

  • Aeroaiei Cristian

    http://www.colycool.com i use 4.2.8 and is not improved with speed

  • Aeroaiei Cristian

    I have buy the geo-location plugin and i dont know how to get the api key for it

  • sebas77

    you know what it would be useful for me as well? Fixing the notification system! The notification system does not clean the notifications of messages that are on the resource I am already browsing. I.E.: if I open a blog that I liked where 2 other users left some comments, the notifications of those comments are not cleared. If I check the first notification, I will be redirect on the very same page, and furthermore the second notification is not cleaned. This is quite annoying and embarrassing

  • saiirakesh

    Thats a nice idea of good PRIVACY OPTIONS- temporory deactivation,invisible mode of profile,and lots of options for photo albums privacy
    and hope the messaging option is changed ….some thing like yahoo chat window-that will make easy and intresting for users

  • sebas77

    I have an Idea I want to share with the Social Engine PHP developers. Lately our engineers decided to review the critical part of the SE code. Not much surprisingly, we found some very awkward lines of code, we fixed some bugs (we are going to point the most critical ones out to you), but most of all our site is way faster now than it is out of the box. This is all know-how we can share with the community, since we do not need to make profit out of it. So if you do not have the time to catch up with community necessities anymore, why do not you leave the source code open-source? After all I do not think anybody would copy anything from it and as company you sell the license, not the code.

  • skidpics

    I for one would like to see a way to complete remove a module that’s installed if you don’t want it. I don’t see a delete button, and some, even after disabling it, I still have the old layouts in the layout manager…

  • skidpics

    When you dismiss and ban a user in admin, the page doesn’t refresh to remove the entry off the screen

  • Concerned SE Fan

    please be reminded SE team that your main rival for socialnetworking script is constantly on the rise..not sure if they’re on top of you now compared few years ago..but one thing is for sure, they’re becoming not what you’d like them to be..as you can see, a lot of developers are working to the other side of the road already..if I could compare what SE has on top of others (that was few years ago), it would be the developers circle..but it’s not anymore the case this time..it seems that a lot of developers are jumping to the other boat already..this is evident by a lot of third party apps submitted for that rival company compared to the apps submitted to SE nowadays..time will come that SE will eventually lost the trust of developers and customers if you won’t double your efforts to improve your product..remember, you won’t become a trusted company today without your loyal customers..so be sure to take good care of your loyal clients and developers as they’re the one powering your business..take extra time with SE PHP and focus on what you have now..don’t try to grab two markets at the same time, especially if they’re on the same concept..focus with one socialnetworking product and constantly improve it..just a friendly reminder to all of you guys.

    • Joan

      We’ve just signed up to SE CLOUD and love the board (pinterest styled) theme but discovered that paid subscriptions/member billing is not available. When we looked to buy SE PHP (which does support member billing) we discovered that the board theme is NOT available on SE PHP! So we’re caught in between the two platforms. As brand new customers looking to develop 3 or 4 social sites we think that SE is missing a really big opportunity to allow small network owners to properly monetize their sites. If anyone knows a work around for this problem we’d love to know!

      • es7

        Joan, if you are looking for similar layout for SE PHP check our modules Media and Masonry
        http://webhive.com.ua/store/product.php?id_product=49

        Media allows users to create their projects (you can call them albums, posts or anything you like) with photos, videos, audio and more. Masonry adds widgets and layouts in style you have mentioned. We have clients who build communities around these 2 modules only.

        Let me know if you have any questions – I’ll gladly answer

        • Joan

          Thanks very much for this we’ll take a look and come back to you soon!

          • es7

            We have nice discounts till Monday (Media – 25%, Masonry addon – 10%). Black Friday sales!

      • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

        Hey Joan ,

        I was looking in our marketplace the other day with you in mind and came across this theme that’s specifically designed with our Board Theme in mind.

        http://www.socialengine.com/customize/se4/mod-page?mod_id=1106

        Now, unlike Cloud this theme doesn’t come out of the box but this could prove to be a viable work around.

        Thanks!

  • Guest

    hello

    • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

      Hi :)

  • Joan

    We are a new customer signed up on the SE Cloud. Our problem is how to monetize our site? We don’t think advertising will be the best option (for various reasons.) We we’re very excited to see the board theme on SE Cloud but unfortunately SE Cloud doesn’t have a paid subscription/billing function. So we looked to buy SE PHP only to find that SE PHP doesn’t have the board theme! So at the moment we’re caught in between two totally different platforms. We’re not tech stars and don’t know why SE PHP doesn’t have the board theme. Is there some major reason why the board theme couldn’t be added to SE PHP?

  • sebas77

    To the Social Engine developers. As promised this is a report of the major bugs we encountered so far. For use the idea to make SocialEngine PHP Open Source is still valid, but in the meanwhile, these are the things we found out:

    - Major bug in the array translate optimization. The array was disabled after the first access: in application/modules/Core/Bootstrap.php line 718
    the dot was missing in ‘.php’ so the “convert translation to array”
    feature was always reverted to csv at the first access

    - Convert Language Pack CSV files to a PHP Array bug
    custom.csv was NOT loaded in the end so custom translation was not correct a ‘/’ was missing see lines: 104 111 112 in application/modules/Core/Controller/Action/Admin.php in addition fgetcsv at line 154 was’nt called according to php specification: the third parameter must be a single escape character, not a char for a comment line, by the way third parameter is not needed in this case so i removed it

    - wrong feed indentation (reproducible in your demo)
    as you can see in your demo the feed indentation is wrong, when you click “view more” new feeds appear but slightly shifted to the right and also the horizontal rule is missing this is my fix: added line 72 to /application/modules/Activity/widgets/feed/index.tpl modified lines 69 396 in /application/modules/Activity/views/scripts/_activityText.tpl

    I have to be honest, as professional developer this kind of bugs look a little bit scary to me because they are obviously nasty oversights

    • se-client

      Hi Sebas77 -

      Wow, many thanks for taking the time to share these. It will help an invaluable number of SE license holders, who are all trying to fix the innumerable bugs plaguing each release :-)

      Regarding the Webligo team, it’s clear that either 1) the devs are not good devs 2) the devs are good devs but have to work with too little time and are not able to review or test their code .

      - releasing each and every single time a software with several major bugs
      - not updating the version numbers so that it’s clear what is fixed when (only answer: redownload, it’s fixed, promised)
      - not having release notes to keep track of the issues (!)
      - never bothering to even install their script first before releasing their update (demo server, but also internally, some bugs would have been detected if they just did that)
      - no testing done whatsoever

      I know that maintaining a script like SE can be a pain with many different server configs, but these are all very basic elements of a good software company. They’re just not that.

      I saw that Brad Feld is using their SE Cloud version and seems close to the company. I wonder what will be his thoughts now that he will experience first hands the quality of the work released :-)

      • sebas77

        I agree they do not test their work properly, I agree they should always update their demo.
        They honestly release a release note file for every new update, but what bother me most is a lack of a public ticketing system where people can actually see the improvements done.

    • sebas77

      Another awkward bug, the tinymce code for classified has been copied and pasted as it is from the blog plugin and they forgot to change the relative string:

      to fix allowed HTML tag not working in classifieds
      in file application/modules/Classified/Form/Create.php line 64
      change string from ‘blog’ to ‘classified’

      • sebas77

        I hope these posts I write can help SocialEngine to understand to stop using interns for the SocialEngine core codebase and give to it more attention (again: tell this to the boss please)

        • cailgs

    • http://drewfrey.com/ Drew Frey

      Hey @sebas77:disqus ,

      I just wanted to get back to you about a few of these errors you found.

      1) Translation Optimization. You should be able to fix this error by following these steps here:
      http://support.socialengine.com/questions/52/Set-the-Language-for-a-String-That-Isn-t-in-the-Language-Pack

      2) Language CSV Pack :: We’ve seen this happening to a few people and have discovered that this error is occurring only on specific hosting providers that are incompatible with Gzip.

      3) Wrong Feed Indentation :: I believe this was fixed in a recent version of SocialEngine. You’re right, the demo is running on 4.2.6 and will be updated.

      • sebas77

        thanks Drew, I was waiting for your answer.

        I reply just for the 2nd point. We did not enable the SE Gzip software compression through the admin panel, because we support the apache mod_deflate, so we do not need it. Our site is all gzipped through it.

      • sebas77

        ok I got a reply from my engineers on the point 1. I have been told that apparently the solution you propose has nothing to do with the problem and also that the problem is so big that your developers must have noticed it.

  • elmaacho

    Please include “Unsubscribe” link/mechanism for Invite notifcations.

  • elmaacho

    OK. Here’s an idea, SE Team. Since all of these comments indicate that not adequate QA effort is going into the release efforts, please create a test environment for us prior release so we can test it. So the you do the Dev + Design Verification Test, then release it to Demo/QA area, and the General Availability after all bugs fixed.

    I noticed that most 3rd party plugin providers don’t do any custom work anymore. Is there a reason for this? Can anyone recommend a good SE 4.2 Developer? Thanks is advance.

    Hey Guys, I would like to see Facebook photo importing, and perhaps even Pinterest/Instagram within the main core photo album.

    Also, can you guys truely integrate site ‘likes’ with an option facebook ‘like’? Sharing the site content is crucial, and even if you use sharethis or addthis, the sharing isn’t exactly right with the content. You guys are the experts.. Site likes, Tweets and Fb likes would be amazing added to the core and via a widget we can drop to make it work correctly…

    Thoughts?

      Open Graph integration would make it good for likes, I suggested it but many voted it down. I dont know what the f the others are thinking as this would improve content sharing in primary social networks (especially FB)

    It looks that when you go to “Performance & Caching” and adjust this “Cache Lifetime” to like 70 and you check this “Flush cache?” and hit “Save Changes” that’s when after that we cant upload photos anymore…

    Activity Notification needed to be “ajaxed” ……… important

    I hate saying this but a great product like Socialengine suffers because of the negligence of the team in regards of customers demands.

    I am also sorry to say that but I will be migrating shortly because I had enough of buggy releases and poor performance when on the other hand the team is focused on releasing a new product! I have a growing community with about 3000 members and 20 more joining daily and I cannot afford to throw away months of work and investments.

    People set your priorities correctly because if you don’t you will lose your client base.

    Hi, I believe the major thing that social engine requires is mobile Apps. In a world where most of the people access FB, Twitter etc through cellphones, it is essential for any good community to have a mobile app.

    So are we going to get the update (4.3) or do we give up all together?

    Thank You.

    Today is Jan 23 and no SE PHP 4.3. There has not even been an update on the update date. Imagine that.

      Guys -

      I agree SE’s communication leaves a lot to be desired, but so does your fairness. I think it’s clear from the latest blog posts that the timeline described in this blog post is no longer valid.
      You can choose to ignore the latest blog posts and ask for updates according to this timeline here, but all that does is makes you seem like a bunch of immature teenagers whose requests can be dismissed because completely out of line.
      With comments like this, it’s easy to see why SE is fed up dealing with this part of their client base. But we’re not all like that, so SE, don’t lump us into the same bag ;-)

      • Renaldo Sanchez

        B.S. If you as a man/company say you going to do/deliver something then it needs to be done. If what you promised can not be done for what ever reason, then out of courtesy then you need to let people/clients know. Its business.

    • Renaldo Sanchez

      Man these people are just going from bad to worst…
