Just noticed (on my site) that "news" submissions generate points for the poster but personal "blogs" do not.  Is there a setting that would impact that?  I would have thought that since blogs are part of the news system, they would use the same point rules.

You've found a bug.

Notes for my reference…

give_submit_points called in crud_module.php with lang_type, differing in cms_blogs (NEWS_BLOG vs NEWS). points_ADD_NEWS.php exists, points_ADD_NEWS_BLOG.php does not.


Become a fan of Composr on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter. Follow me on Minds (where I am most active). Support me on Patreon

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
