  • Hi Sandra, I prepared the following code for you. This should help to easily reproduce the strange behavior. Things work find with variable name 'fone' and doesn't with 'phone'. <?php use Gibbon\Forms\Form; $form = Form::create('applicationFor…
  • Hi Sandra, Right, I didn’t really think of that. That issue isn’t common in our school tho. I think, it’s more of a Chinese thing Kind regards, Roman
  • Hi Sandra, Fix works like a charm! Thanks so much! Kind regards, Roman
  • Hi Sandra, That’s exactly how I was expecting it to work! I did a number of tests and the user is always redirected independently of the date set. It seems that this is the normal behavior if the user has never submitted an update before, right? …
  • Hi, I think your question may rather be, how can I make a required field non-required? As far as I know, this is only possible for so called custom fields unless you are ready to do a little hacking Kind regards, Roman
  • I just found out that liveValidation still works somehow, because the page submit is blocked if the field is no number with the usual alert message showing. The thing that is not working as expected is that the red fonted liveValidation message “Mu…
  • Ok folks, I will try to answer the question myself. This field doesn’t change anything related to the configuration of the timetable. It simply affects the header of the timetable anytime it shows up somewhere in Gibbon. I believe in most cases t…
  • Hi Ross, I’m comparing v12 and v17. I can’t really say what happened in between though and when this issue started occurring. This issue is not occurring in our version, which is v12. Unique checks are done on client-side and the user is informed …
  • Hi Ross, I was able to partly find explanations. Wamp does actually have a bug, which is that locale cannot be changed using php as it should be. Instead Wamp takes and locks to the locale set for Windows. In my case Windows was set to en_GB and …
  • Hi Ross, I’m still stuck here! I added another language today, which is French, after en_GB and en_US it’s the third language. Things are still stuck in en_GB, e.g. “Manage Roll Group” is translated into “Manage Form Group”. This is happening ind…
  • Hi Ross, We do have a few teachers using personal devices but most use shared computers in the computer lab, library, admin office or teachers room. Especially when we introduced Gibbon I noticed that security issue with teachers forgetting to log…
  • Hi Sandra, False alarm! I simply forgot that by default Gibbon is set to have a rather long sessionDuration of 20 minutes, which we significantly reduced in our hacked version for security reasons. Using your hint showed that it’s working perfect…
  • Hi Ross, Yeah, the download of the translation file for en_US worked (i18n\en_US\LC_MESSAGES\gibbon.mo). Translation seems to work since I get UK terminology. I’m just wondering why I keep getting the same translations after setting default to US.…
  • Hi Sandra, Thanks for this amazing fast fix! It works for me as well! Kind regards, Roman
  • Hi Sandra, Yeah, it’s true! I did the installation using en_GB locale. I tried to switch to american terminology using menu System Admin> Manage Languages. I installed en_US locale and made it my default as well. The terminology remains the sa…
  • Hi Sandra, Your hint helped me to fix the issue! Apparently it was related to my Installation on Windows specifically Wamp. The problem was related to the field absolutePath in table gibbonSetting. I was using value “C:\wamp\www\core-17.0.00”, w…
  • Hi Ross, Yeah, I figured that. Could it be a problem related to Gibbon v17? Maybe a bug? In my setup all modules are listed under “orphaned modules” and none under “installed”. I have attached a screenshot. Kind regards, Roman
  • Hi Ross and Sandra, I had a look at the code of v17 and it’s rather amazing. All those hard coded design codes we currently have in Gibbon v12 are just gone in v17 and the twig template engine is amazing as well. It seems to me that responsive des…
  • Hi Sandra, Thanks for your reply! I had a closer look at Gibbon v16 and the changes are cool! For new parents to submit more than one new sibling application is definitely helpful and will help us in the future. I’m also glad to see the signific…
  • Hi Sandra, I’m wondering about the purpose of the new db field gibbonAppicationFormHash in table gibbonApplicationForm. I believe this is related to the possibility to add more than one sibling to one family. However, why couldn’t field gibbonAppl…
  • Hi Sandra, Thanks for your reply! I had a closer look at Gibbon v16 and the changes are cool! For new parents to submit more than one new sibling application is definitely helpful and will help us in the future. I’m also glad to see the signific…
  • Hi, Using '..' didn't work for us! Form submits worked but resulted in an ugly error message. We changed from '..' to '../..'. This works perfectly so far. Kind regards, Roman
  • Hi Ross, Yeah, it’s a little weird. Anyway, since there was no objection from your side, I tested the new settings on the productive system. So far, things work fine. The entry in field absoluteURL in gibbonSettings without sub folder is simply ‘..…
  • Hi Ross, I haven’t tried your idea yet but did further investigations. My guess was somehow right and the issue had to do with setting an ip address in field absoluteURL in gibbonSettings. I run different versions of Gibbon inside of sub folders,…
  • Hi Ross, Interesting approach! Would have never come up with this. I’ll give some thought as well. Thanks! Roman
  • Hi Sandra, Sorry for the late reply. I haven’t checked replies for a few weeks. I just activated email notification forwarding. This should not happen again. Thanks for sharing! I’m wondering and sorry in advance for bothering you with non-Gibbon-…
  • Hi Sandra, Thanks for sharing! We didn’t have the need for a student ID so far. I think it’s also because our kids wear a unique school uniform making it clear to everybody where the kid belongs to and the school is rather small with fewer than 40…
  • Hi Tklee, It’s surprisingly easy because FET supports CSV import/export. FET creates a file called timetable.csv. This file contains basically all you need. However, the format is not identical to the Gibbon timetable import file. The FET file uses…
  • Hi Ross, The main reason for not being able to update is lack of time. I tried to do so last year due to security issues but I faced compatibility problems on our server. In addition there are quite a number of hacks, which make an update a real pa…
  • Hi Ross, We are still using v12 but I’ll give a try. Thanks again! Kind regards, Roman
