I didn't ask about mgal-data, I asked about the tmp folder and the folder of the actual album itself.

Hmm. What are the file permissions of the tmp folder and what are the file permissions of the album's own folder?

Anything in the error log?

Btw means 'by the way'.

My access expired because my subscription ran out, nothing else. Thanks for sorting it, Nao, means I can take a look in every so often to see if there's anything I can do to help folks.

Given that I don't have access to the support board, that I have no idea what you're referring to anyway, and I've never looked at the code of Ultimate Profile in my life, I'd say that I can't help you.

This is also why you are strongly encouraged to take backups of everything before an upgrade...

No, it's not deleted, it's just not really being updated...

It would be tragic and regretful if Nao were to let go of this wonderful modification.
It would be more tragic if people actually read what's been posted first.[1]

Also, would you please actually answer the questions asked: (the bit in bold is still not answered)
So what other mods are installed, and what exactly are you trying to do? I'm more than a bit unclear as to exactly what's going on and what behaviour is occurring.
 1. The sole reason Wedge began, was because SMF burned both of us in the past. Not the software, the team. Thus, Wedge will take on the future development of Aeva. This isn't new, this has been said many many times.

the url tags that gets automatically wrapped around any http or http links that i post, if i code these links first.

If you can access it, here is the topic and there are many others who are having the same problem.
Oh, anyone can read the topic, just that you do know that neither of us can reply there, right?
Thank you in advance for your help. While we all wait for you to release Wedge, please update and release Aeva Lite on this site, as it is incredibly useful and my forums can't live without it, so again, i beg you not to abandon that modification.
I can't (and won't) speak for Nao, but I can't really see him putting a lot of effort into Aeva-for-SMF right now, to be honest. After everything that's happened, I just can't see it, but never say never.
There is an alternative to your Aeva modification, called Simple Audio Video Embedder but frankly, it is just a poor imitation of your mod and it does not even work!!
Yes, we know about that one, it was written specifically because Aeva Lite was removed for a while from the mod site. It wasn't even originally called SAVE, but AEMP, just to intentionally sound similar and confusing.

Bummer about your experience with SMF. Mine has been mostly positive, but obviously I am not in a position to "see how the sausage is made". My condolences.
Be glad. Be very glad. Those of us who've been the other side of that curtain... let's just say a number of us would never go back across the line again.
This may be an awkward question, but which of the SMF Mods would you recommend to manage a picture gallery.
Aeva, hands down. Just because it's not being updated doesn't mean it isn't good at what it does. And there is occasional support for the free version on, so it's not totally unsupported. Worst case scenario is that it's no more unsupported in the scheme of things than the other major gallery mod seems to be, i.e. it doesn't get updated all that often and support is infrequent there too.
Do you have a non-commercial version of Aeva?
As live said, yes, it's on the mod site. Hint: it's currently the most popular mod.
I have used the forum software engine that is built on, and want to have the equivalent or better capability of a post like:
Aeva does that just fine, even the free version.
Thanks, and again, my condolences. I've been put on probation from several forums, and banned from one. It stings.
The banning was only one of several unpleasant episodes, and not even the last one of them.

Mind you, before long all of this will hopefully be just an unhappy memory. As you may know, Wedge is a branch off from the main SMF code, with Aeva built in, as well as many (many) other enhancements, and at some point that's going to be available for free download.

  • However, Arantor provides spotty support. Spotty as in, not very often.
  • Since I'm not familiar with Aeva 2.10, I don't know what's wrong from that screenshot.
I haven't done in ages, and won't be offering any support, partly because my annual subscription ended last month, and partly because Wedge is where it's at.

Though that screenshot looks fine to me.
The following post does say there is support for kind customers, I thought I asked nicely?
Check the date. That message predates this topic, indicating that things had happened afterwards that soured the deal... Especially as I understand that the paid support board, as was, is now closed.[1]
 1. If it weren't closed, that would be the place to ask for support on the paid version... right?

You can still use it. Support is provided as/if/when we have time, which is rather infrequent. And the official thread on, well, Nao is post-banned and my account is pending deletion, which should tell you my feelings on it, so no support there except from anyone who happens to pass through.

Let me sum it up: why would Aeva on SMF receive support when Aeva is now integrated into Wedge and being expanded upon there?

26 is where the downloads are available. If you have purchased the paid version, you will be able to access it from there. It's even linked from the list of boards in

Note that support is not guaranteed at all, it is simply as/when/if we have time, energy and opportunity since all energy is really going towards Wedge right now.

We're not even at public alpha yet, so there's no way we can tell you what our plans are for later; we just do not know yet.

As for using SMF 2 final, we actually have to because of their licence restrictions, SMF does not go BSD until 2.0 final which means we can't make the fork code public prior to that point. But we're not going to make it public straight after because it's not ready for that yet.

We have been keeping up with bug fixes, since I still have SVN read access so I've been porting bug fixes back from their SVN into our repo as and when, though we have fixed more bugs than their repo has...

So what if there are more than 20 queries per page?

Would you rather have 20 queries per page that all run slowly, or 40 queries per page that, in total, run FASTER than the 20/page?

Fewer queries is not always better, and I can show you case after case after case in SMF where that happens.

What about maintenance pages, are more than 20/page allowed there?

My long-time experience with software producers, be it professional or 'semi'pro, are usually willing to help out if something is not working 100% as expected. Seems you're the odd one out. Good luck with that.
The difference is, people like Nao and myself are neither 'professional' nor 'semi-pro'. We are hobbyists, we do it for the love of doing it.

Support is actively a pain in our collective rear. We make things because making them makes us happy. Having to spend time trying to pander to the expectations of others does not make us happy.

The best way I can sum it up is as:
Sarah: Give me the child.
Jareth: Sarah, beware. I have been generous up 'til now. I can be cruel.
Sarah: Generous? What have you done that's generous?
Jareth: *Everything*! Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for *you*! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations of me. Isn't that generous?
I got fed up trying to live up to the expectations of others, which is why I slowly stopped writing mods for SMF and when I learned the hard way of never writing anything for anyone else, to only write things I actually *want* to write. After all it's my free time I'm using to write things, surely I have a say in what I spend that time on?

Ok. So I'll uninstall Aeva then. Too bad. Doesn't really feel "right" to pay for the commercial version because it would include support, to hear hours later that "you're not going to touch it".  But anyway. Have fun with the 'tenner'.
The $5 version is quite clear that it's 1-day access, and last I checked the $10 version says that it enables you access to the support board "without any guarantee of support"
