Missing date and time after upgrade

Post by Laz1 » 21 Sep 2018, 04:49

Please after upgrading to the latest versions of both the component (3.07) and module (3.08), the sign up date, activation and unsubscription dates all set to 0000-00-00 00:00:00 for old entries. For new users however, everything seems to work great. I'm on joomla 3.8.5 and php version 7.2.10. Any help at all will be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much in advance.

Hi,
Please is there a way we can export the names and email addresses of all subscribers into a file?
for now there is no such option, so this can be done e.g. in phpMyAdmin :idea:

Hmmm, hard to say what happend when installing the upgrade. Unfortunately I don't have any experience with such problem. The problem is, the component is not installed by itself but by Joomla! installation manager - but really hard to say, there is no function in the component or in Joomla! install manager which somehow edit current data in database :idea: (the only one instruction for editing data is when the component is uninstalled, in such case all data will be removed) :idea:

After comparing my two databases,In "subscribers", I realized you introduced 2 new columns in the database and that seems to be the problem. When I first installed in 2016, there was just "date" and "date_unsubscribe". However, now we have "date, "date_unsubscribe", "date_register" and "date_active".

Hmmm, now I understand, but in such case, the old date by old items ist not deleted (it is still here) but because of new feature, new date column is used (it is because of GDPR, so all date values - unsubscribe, register, active are known).

So this seems to be the problem, I think the fastest way to solve it is to copy the date column to date_register in the phpMyAdmin :idea:
