anonymous does not remember categories

This discussion is related to the Anonymouse addon.

settings do not save (using the dashboard); they just revert back when logged out, with no category to choose, only Root by default. I would like this plugin to remember the category list. Any solution to this?

  • try putting it in config.php manually and test (and don't go back to the dashboard if it removes it)

    $Configuration['Plugins']['Anonymouse']['Category'] = array(1,2);

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • this is the original config setting:
    $Configuration['Plugins']['Anonymouse']['Category'] = 'a:12:{i:0;s:1:"1";i:1;s:1:"2";i:2;s:1:"3";i:3;s:1:"4";i:4;s:1:"5";i:5;s:1:"6";i:6;s:1:"7";i:7;s:1:"8";i:8;s:1:"9";i:9;s:2:"10";i:10;s:2:"11";i:11;s:2:"12";}';

    and replaced it with this:
    $Configuration['Plugins']['Anonymouse']['Category'] = array('Life', 'Your Boss', 'Your Co-Workers', 'Your Husband', 'Your Wife', 'Your Boyfriend', 'Your Girlfriend', 'inLaws');

    and it still did not work, have i done this wrong? Categories do not show when trying to post a discussion anonymously. Any ideas please.

    Thanks for your answer, very appreciated.
    cheers

  • It was just a thought. apparently the values are serialized. I don't know what the proper values you need to put in.

  • Thanks.
    The category pulldown list only works if you are logged in. As soon as you are logged out it wont work, which defeats the purpose of posting anonymously.

    If you think it's a bug @qaz then open a bugreport on github and report back the bug report number so I can add it to the topic title.

  • This is still a problem.
