Seems odd that in the blocks you can add the block for --register and --register-top on the visitor page, and register still works but register-top does not.

Hello Wilson,

Currently, we only support to share video from Facebook to phpFox site, however, we will considere carefully to connect phpFox platform with other social media in our future upgrades. We  really regret for this inconvenience.

This is odd, because I have been experiencing the EXACT OPPOSITE on my site, which is running phpFox 4.8.6 on a 2017 Retina 5K iMac running the latest version of macOS Big Sur.

Although it has been happening for a while now -- I believe since I updated to 4.8.6 -- I haven't reported it to the phpFox support team yet.

In my case, if I type out a post or comment in a BBEdit text document -- BBEdit is a popular macOS text editor -- and then copy and paste it into a new post on my site, BEFORE actually saving the post, the text appears to have lost its formatting, just as you have described. In other words, all paragraphs are run together without any blank lines between them.

HOWEVER, once I actually save the post, the formatting looks normal. It is really confusing, and really weird behavior.

I noticed that you said "copy and paste". That suggests to me that maybe you are also a macOS user. It makes me wonder if Admins on other platforms experience this apparent bug.

This is now the second bug which has surfaced since I upgraded to 4.8.6. The first one -- which will hopefully be resolved soon -- concerns the apostrophe which is displaying in recent posts as its hexadecimal value, instead of as an actual apostrophe.

John, while I do have a macOS "Numbers" file -- Numbers is the macOS equivalent of an Excel spreadsheet -- where I  store phrases changes, when it comes to solutions like this one which often involve more than one step, I have a folder called "phpFox How To's" where I store BBEdit text files. Each text file contains step-by-step instructions for how to perform a particular task, or achieve a particular objective. The name of each of these text files begins with "How to" and is followed by a brief description of what the instructions contained therein will do. It is a simple, straightforward, easy system which helps me to remember how to do certain things.

Yeah, I already started a spreadsheet a while back, as you had suggested to me. 630? Man, that is A LOT of time-consuming work if you need to reinstall! I know that there are probably a lot of phrases and such that I should edit, because they are written in poor English, for reasons we both understand. But, I'll tell you, just making the time to do it, and the monotony of it all. I dislike monotonous, repetitive, tedious tasks. I can only handle so much before I have to stop before my brain fries or my patience runs out.

But as far as all of those settings are concerned, while I have saved some text files with settings listed in them, what I mainly do are mySQL backups just about every day if I remember to do them. And, I keep multiple copies of my mySQL backups: on the server machine itself, on two backup drives connected to the server machine, on my work machine, and on two backup drives connected to my work machine. I just don't like to take chances. And soon I will be getting better quality line voltage regulators, and two UPS systems, one for each iMac.

Dear all, 

We would like to update we are working on V5 and we could not public the exact time for v5 Beta release (for developers) . When everything is ready, a detail of the release will be published on our blog at, you can keep an eye on it to stay updated.




This has been posted several times but its pretty meaningless because you havent made a blog post about in a long time. 


How about some sneak peeks at what to expect ? 


We can wait for a beta but its the details i'm sure most of us would like to hear.

Thank you, Rich. Google Adsense needs that set to "Yes" in order to work. But I'm not serving ads yet so changing that to "No" does fix the problem. 4.8.5 was recently released so I had expected this photo navigation problem to have been fixed. But it wasn't.

Thank you for the workaround!

Im with ya! It should have been fixed i wrote it up to support in october.

It is the material theme and it comes and goes.  I don't get it.  It never happens on Firefox but edge and chrome pop up with the registration form when I have an invite-only website.  I am going to try to check daily and see if there is something I do differently because today it is working correctly on all three browsers.  Very weird.

I'm sorry, but what exactly is a PWA?

My iPhone and Android phone apps are a vital part of my phpFox site, the reason being that according to Google's statistics, close to 80% of traffic coming to my main website is from people using mobile devices, and only about 20% comes from people using desktop and laptop computers. What a huge difference compared to even ten years ago.
