I'm also quite disappointed that I don't know how to solve this bug - primarily because of one reason - I cannot reproduce the configuration of the hosting server. Usualy, the server has some security restrictions, or other specific issues, and that's why it doesn't work properly. I would be glad if I could solve it.
Could you please co-operate with me in this?
In 1.2.8b_11, there is a possibility to set the "live site" in config.php. This should work in case the live site is wrong. Please try it. Just uncomment the DEFINE('JOOMLAWATCH_LIVE_SITE','www.yoursite.com'
); (replace yoursite.com with your domain name)
Could you please drop me an email to foo at codegravity .com with some test account on the site where it doesn't work. Later, I'd probably need a temporary FTP account too, or I'd need to adjust several files to be able to identify the cause of this problem. Any help from your site will be appreciated. Thank you.
