While all browsers support Last-Modified and ETag headers properly, MSIE seems not, it wouldn't let you refresh a page generated by b2 0.6.1. And that sucks, I know.
Here is the fix: clickie!
(This fix will be included in the releases asap.)

Thank you! I was trying everything last night to figure out why the page would not refresh! I had to clear my cache everytime I made a change. Now I know it's not me =-). Thanks for the fix.

it works for me without the patch (the page refreshes and change if modified) , I'm using Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; .NET CLR 1.0.3705)

I downloaded, installed and I love it!
But one thing bugs me, just anyone can post comments - even if they enter bogus information into the fields? I'd like them to register so I can at least know who they are and have some control other than just delete their comment...

Am I missing something? Or is this not in b2?

10.01.03 @ 16:05:38 045


Is there a new version due out anytime soon?
Also, the forum signup seems not to be working properly.

You can edit your configure.php file to require people to register to be able to post comments.

excellent news. thanks for fixing that!
03.02.03 @ 23:21:49 348


Raven - email - url
Fix worked for me, I had to explicitly refresh with ctrl-f5 before. Thanks alot for the help!
04.02.03 @ 07:40:14 694


scott - email - url
if your browser is configured to check for a new version of a page every time it is loaded, you will not experience the refresh bug. the default ie settings cause problems, though.

just to clear the mystery.

oops ; - )  i posted it as php code and it runs ; - )  maybe you should fix that problem. Anyway, here I go again.

put this BEFORE the tag



Hopefully it should be seen now.

I give up, Michel. Have a look in the database and pull the code out from there. You really should have support for code tags. You can't have it like this, this is a terrible security risk.
18.02.03 @ 16:29:56 062


hahah, umm yea.

how does b2 exactly work? i heard it is quite confusing..but i really want to use it, does it come with a tutorial after you download it?
04.03.03 @ 19:24:41 183


gengar56 - email - url
It strips the tags out, so it isn't a "terrible security risk", trythis.

Anyway, b2 is amazing! I'm very impressed.

The latest download as of yesterday doesn't have this fix. It's easy to apply, though.

See my b2 blog at http://elliotl.tk

Will it let me do this?

The curren't release still doesn't have this fix (at least from the mirror that I used). It is kind of a pain to make everyone that downloads and installes B2 to update this rather then you just fixing it in the source.......

There is a Super refresh for MSIE if you hold the Ctrl key while pushing the refresh button, For those of you who didnt know, its not a commonly known thing.

To trythis:
Actually, PHP code is not executed at any moment, and it's not saved in the database at all. So, no security issue on that end. I actually explained a long time ago that there wouldn't be support for PHP instructions in posts and comments.

What is b2 ?
A classy news/weblog tool (aka logware).

How does it work ?
You type something and hit "blog this" and in the next second it's on your page(s). You can write extended entries, or even entries that span multiple pages. You can also use BloggerAPI clients to post to your b2 weblog.
What's original in b2 ? Pages are generated dynamically from the MySQL database, so no clumsy 'rebuilding' is involved. It also means faster search/display capabilities, and the ability to serve your news in different 'templates' without any hassle.

Requirements ?
A server that can run PHP4, and a MySQL database (you can install b2 in an already existing database, and you can put several b2's in one database).

Where can I download it ?
b2 0.6 is the latest public release.
You can also visit the CVS server for the latest code, at your own risks.
See the ReadMe file for requirements and installation instructions.

Contact info ?
E-mail: m@tidakada.com
Forums: over there. :)
