    Dialogue and Umbraco 7.3.4

    Hi

    We are looking at implementing forum functionality on one of our websites within the next 4 weeks and Dialogue looks like a great package. We just have a few questions:

    • Is Dialogue fully compatible with the latest Umbraco release (currently 7.3.4)?

    • MVCForum 1.7 has been recently released and it seems to have some substantial new features and improvements. Do you envisage that these will be ported to Dialogue at some point in the future?

    • It seems that Dialogue currently doesn't support tagging of posts. Tagging is important for us (and might be critical depending on feedback from the project sponsor). Are there plans to support tagging in Dialogue? Alternatively, could you advise on the feasibility of us extending the package to support tagging?

    Many thanks

    Sam

    Hi Sam,

    Being honest. Dialogue has been kind of left since I first developed it due to other commitments. So I don't know if it works with the latest version of Umbraco.

    I have every intention of updating Dialogue this year, but it won't be until late Q2/Early Q3. But it's highly likely it will be a redevelop from the ground up.

    Tagging could be added by looking how it's done in MVCForum.

    OK, thanks for the update Lee. I think on this occasion, we may have a go at installing MVC Forum side by side with the Umbraco site. Thanks. Sam.

    I'm currently trying it out on 7.3.1 and it seems to be working ok.

    The only problem I'm having is getting the Facebook Oauth to work.

    Again, I suspect the Facebook OAuth is out of date (In fact I know it is) because it's not using the latest Skybrud.Social binary.

    https://github.com/abjerner/Skybrud.Social

    And then the Facbook Controller will need updating based on the changes in MVCForum (So will the Google one)

    https://github.com/leen3o/mvcforum/tree/master/MVCForum.Website/Controllers/OAuthControllers

    I have added Microsoft login too on MVCForum, something which I would want to add to Dialogue.

    Hi Lee,

    I've updated to the latest Skybrud.Social and made some changes to the controller to explicitly request the email address and everything is working fine now.

    Thanks for your help

    No problem. If in doubt, always compare against MVCForum.

    If you want to do a pull request for the fixes, feel free too ;)

    Just tried it on 7.3.6 in the Fanoe site, just for a test. Installed ok as long as it's against a SQL Server. It crashed the whole install when done against SQL CE.

    It came up OK but many links off the main page go to 404's with addresses like http://localhost:54574/forum-one/page/create/?cat=1085 when trying to create a forum post. That's with the category and member ok to post.

    Are there pages missing in the install? I'd love to get this working as I have a job I can use it on next week.

    Cheers,

    Craig
