Delete Messages


Site admins may delete community messages which are older than a specified number of days.

This function is reachable from the Ossn administrator backend panel->Configure submenu.

For your convenience, all Ossn default language files are already in place, but (except of the English and the German one) still need translation.

Volunteers are welcome. :)


Changes:
V 1.1
- initial release

Thank you very much for providing these details, which lead to the assumption that the Ossn component installer failed to unpack the component zip archive correctly for some reason.

Of course I understand that you would want to run your community in first place - instead of doing experiments like that, but if you find the time I'd very much appreciate if you could do the following test:

  • Log in to your site with your FTP tool and remove the file named 'error_log'
  • Log in to your Ossn admininstrator backend panel
  • Proceed to Site Settings -> Basic and asure that Error Reporting is turned ON
  • Proceed to Components -> Components
  • Unfold 'Delete-Messages 1.1' and click the red 'Delete' button and confirm
  • From your FTP tool enter the subdirectory named 'components'
  • Verify that there is NO subdirectory named 'DeleteMessages' anymore. If it's still in place we already encountered a first issue. Anyway: then remove it with your FTP tool
  • From Ossn admin panel proceed to Components -> Installer, choose your local delete-messages-1-1.zip archive and click 'Upload'
  • From your FTP tool verify that a new subdirectory named 'DeleteMessages' has been created. If not, we found a second issue.
  • If DeleteMessages has been created, enter it and verify that all files and subdirectories are in place.
  • If DeleteMessages again has no subdirectories, it's time to have a look into your error_log file and send me the lines
  • If DeleteMessages looks complete, you may proceed to Components->Components and enable Delete-Messages 1.1

ok 1st let me thank zman for this component it saved my network now its accessing messages better since i deleted the old message over 28 days which was 45,000 imagine that.

Problem
i was having problem installing this component. every time i installed it my site crashed immediately and the only way to revert it was to access my files via ftp and delete the component.

Solution
since i figured i could always fix the problem i tried again but this time i viewed the component in my server and realized only the 4 documents were installed and no folders. i then extracted the component from the zip i download and manually add the missing folders to the component folder via ftp. that brought back my website but then i add to disable it and re-enable it for the option to appear.

i hope this will help someone if they encounter this problem

I don't understand what you wanted to say?
Actually there IS an English language file included.

Question: What language were you running when you installed the component?
And please provide the error log from the moment of crashing.
