EE Update errors

Posted: November 13, 2012 at 8:14 am


November 13, 2012 at 8:14 am seems to cause problems with overriding form styles from 3.1.27.

More importantly, causes payments through AIM and SIM to fail. Based on the error message the support person said it was because a non-alphanumeric character was being submitted in the item name or description.

I had to revert back to 3.1.27 to fix the issue.

Hi Chris,

Which forms were being overridden? Were these from the theme roller stylesheets of specific to your WordPress theme?

Also, has added data sanitization to many of the forms, so if you had entered non-alphanumeric characters in the event name or price type, these will need to be re-saved so they get updated in the database.

Josh, thanks for your quick reply.

The styles were on the registration form and we are using the theme roller style sheets.

I tried updating again to 28.3 and then re-saving my events, but it still did not work. Is there something else I need to do to re-save the DB entries?

Hi Chris,

Which theme roller style sheet option is being used? Are there older stylesheets copied over to /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates? We’ve recently added a base stylesheet, and there may be a few conflicting style rules that we didn’t see in testing, and there may be some style rules from the theme that are affecting this. What is the WordPress theme that is being used? Can you send a link and a few details of what is conflicting?

With the issue, which alphanumeric characters are being used and where are they entered? If I can recreate this on my dev site, we can possibly narrow down what is causing the issue with authnet.
