RSS Feed Went Down and Stopped Home Page from Loading
« on: December 15, 2014, 12:03:21 pm »
Yesterday the website of an RSS feed that I have on my portal page went down and when it did it caused my Home/Portal page to white screen.

If the RSS feed is not working is it normal that ezPortal will wait and wait on the feed before allowing the rest of the portal page to show?

When I turned off that RSS block my Home/Portal page was OK. But during the down time of the website that I was pulling the RSS feed from it caused my Home page to be blank if I enabled the RSS ezBlock for that feed.

Below are  the errors I got.

 Line: 347


As you can see the website that was providing the feed was dealernews.com.

Is it normal that the portal or home page will die if a feed is missing?

Checking into it. My Plan is going to add some code around if it dies won't kill off the whole site.

Got some uninstall errors on the current rev of ezPortal I have currently installed so the upgrade will have to wait until the weekend.

Once again thanks for the fast turnaround. Your service is hard to beat. I am a SMFHacks Gallery Pro user and I had a issue that I reported to you on SMFHacks that you did the same quick turnaround. You rolled out a rev to Gallery Pro in less than an hour. This time the new ezPortal rollout was done in about an hour plus. 

If anyone has  doubt's about ezPortal or SMFHacks products/mods you shouldn't. These products work and they are supported.

Thanks for the words.
ezportal package has an upgrade package so can just install it over the old version.

It can install onto the current install! Wow! I didn't know that. I will go that route.

I am one rev behind at 2.5.1. Will the upgrade work properly by jumping over 2.6 to 2.7?

Looking at my admin panel's Mod Package listing I see an old 2.0 package listing of ezPortal that has an [upgrade] link but the newer 2.5.1 just has [uninstall] in that same position next to the [list files] and [delete].

Dumb question alert......

Am I out of luck for the upgrade? Or can I select upgrade on the old 2.0 ?

You should be able to upload the new package then when it goes to install it shouldn't edit any files or than copying files over.
