Only weird thing I've noticed is that the forum post count in profiles don't match those displayed in the forums.
Speaking of forum post counts, those and our locations used to be displayed under our avatars. They seem to be missing now. This is just a minor thing, though.
They are in the drop down menu next to our names now, Darga :)
I'm currently constantly having to re-sign in every time I return to the site even though I always check the 'remember me' box.
Ah yes, there they are... and yes, Shonk. I'm finding that too.
Hmm that having to sign in might have something to do with a pesky cookie that Min had to play with earlier today where it wouldn't let us sign out.
I fixed the post counts in our profiles.
Part of the forum upgrade was a re-calc of the forum post count for each user. So the one under the drop down for the name seems to return the posts that are still on Obernet; the one in the profile seems to display forum posts ever made (regardless of whether the thread has been pruned or not). So it's using two different fields in the DB. Which would you prefer; posts ever made or posts currently existing on the forum? Or are we okay with both values now we know what they are?
The sign in thing may have to do with having to switch from cookies (what we've always used) to sessions, straight after we went live.
Using cookies, it seemed that anonymous users could post threads, and we accrued about 6 spam forum posts in the space of 5 minutes of reopening the site.
Sessions are being stored correctly, though, and the directory is writable...so can we leave it for a couple of days? I want to see what else it does.
The recount gave me 25 posts and you only 200 or so :P. I'll change it to the pruned number now that I know it exists. The code left by the developers was pointing to the overall number.
I don't know what field the recount was posting to; the one in the forum (from the drop down next to our names) seemed to be the right recalc value and the one in user profiles was some bonkers (very small) number.
I'm just going to disable the PM system for a moment to text/fix a few little issues.
Edit: Okay, all done/fixed.
The quick reply doesn't have all the buttons and things anymore is a bit of a pain
Just noticed something.
When putting something in as a spoiler in the reply page, when you preview that page it still shows the tags and doesn't hide anything in between them. However when the post is submitted the spoiler tag works correctly. Only something minor, but thought it was worth mentioning
I find that when I try to navigate into any of the past art competitions, I'm redirected to the main page. Also, I can't find the rest of the galleries?
Galleries haven't been reimplemented (yet) because the upgrade included a gallery module (that I haven't tested yet) which resulted in a database conflict. When I get the opportunity to test e107's gallery module (the previous one was one I built based on the forum) I'll import art to those.
I see :) Thank you so much for your work Min, I have no clue how we'd exist without you! All hail!
The only problem I've experienced so far is that I have to log in every time I visit the site, despite ticking "Remember Me". I'm using IE10 on my tablet/laptop/hybrid deely (haven't tried it on my other laptop because it's playing up). Otherwise, it's all looking great!
I have the same problem as Bunne, using Opera Mini on my Android phone, and Firefox (Linux Mint) on my laptop.
Same here on my Android phone, tested in various browsers on the device (the one already installed on the phone, Chrome, and Firefox)
I don't have to sign in every time - but quite frequently. Seems a bit random; sometimes multiple times in a day, but this morning I was still signed in when I refreshed after the computer hibernating for the night.
small issue that I've noticed is that the dots that tell you if a new post has been added to a board doesn't always go green. No big deal, I just look to see how long ago the last post was added.
Same as Deb. I find it really irritating. Also I seem to have lost half my stars :(
The automated process that upgraded the forums ran the forum post recalculation which adjusted everyone's post counts based on how many existing posts they have as opposed to how many posts they made since the dawn of time. So it no longer includes posts that have been deleted/pruned.
I have no idea how to control the green dot. I assume it's time based but I just don't know.
And seeing as most of my posts would have been in the dining hall, they're long since gone :/ Does this mean my post count will go down further everytime a dining hall thread is completed and deleted?
Nope, it just means that when we run the user post/forum recalculation script (which we never do), it will reset to actual posts that are live on the site. The only reason this happened is because the automated process during the forum upgrade - which I had no say over - ran the recalc script.
I really wish we could exclude game threads from post counts, personally. It's not a good indication of conversation-based posts, which is what people's remaining post counts will indicate for a time.
The upgrade HAD to be run though, I want to stress that. We were running a really old version full of worse bugs than any that are being experienced now, which attracted spam like you wouldn't believe and stopped us from being found by people a lot of the time. While we're getting some bugs in this version due to it being alpha, I had to run it now, before I go on maternity leave/December, when. I won't have any time left for significant updates, for quite a while.
