Problems With Drupal 5.0 Beta

I thought I’d throw my notes in here as I find problems.

I’m using Drupal 5.0 Beta 1, PHP 5.1.4, FreeBSD, MySQL 4.1.16.

  • The site name and tag are repeating for users that are logged in. It seems to be OK for anonymous users.
  • The Minnelli layout is slightly too wide for my screen and I get a horizontal scroll bar for the authenticated users since I have content in the left and right sidebars
  • This probably isn’t a Minnelli theme issue, but two blocks I created from my feed and Google Reader feed are not showing up for the anonymous user. It doesn’t seem to be turned off for any users.

Several of the modules don’t seem to have been updated for 5.0 yet. Three I looked at that aren’t ready yet are CAPTCHA, Textile, and Text Image. I’m not really turning on comments yet, so none of those are a huge problem. I did download and install Scheduler, but I don’t see it available here even though I enabled it.

Updated:Another problem: When I saved this article I got a bunch of errors related to the taxonomy module, such as warning: Illegal offset type in isset or empty in /users/home/stantont/web/public/modules/taxonomy/taxonomy.module on line 1087.

Six error messages in all, all pointing to line numbers 1087, 1088, and 1091.
