Excuse the mess please!

Postby Sabine » Wed Feb 11, 2015 10:07 pm

Hi everybody,

As you can see we updated the forum software today - things should work much more smoothly on mobile devices now.

Unfortunately the update meant using the default template for now, until we can approximate the yellow theme you are used to.

Meanwhile, enjoy, and please do report any bugs you find to this thread. :smile:

Yay! I logged on during what must have been the moment you updated and I was getting an error. Glad to see the new format for mobile as that's what I use most of the time. Thanks!

First problem: what have you done with my "unread posts" and "new posts" buttons? I navigate solely with those links!

Hi Sabine, thanks for the warning. Last night I could log in with Firefox and look at one post. When I would try to go to any other spot, it would hang up and I'd have the endless spinning circle but no further activity.

Today I haven't been able to access the site using Firefox at all, I only get the spinning circle appearing on the tab but nothing happens.

I was able to log on and use the forum perfectly using IE11. I'm on a desktop running Win 7 Ultimate, if that helps. Is it possible one of my anti-virus or anti-malware programs is interfering with the site?

ETA - Ok, to update the status of this, the site finally loaded on FF and took 8 minutes to do so.
Also, is it still supposed to be blue? Each subforum turns the old yellowish if I point my mouse at it but doesn't stay that way. Any color is find by me, I'm just wondering if it's still supposed to look that way to me.

There just appears to be an issue with using https and the Mozilla engine currently.

Is anyone having problems getting logged out every time you hit "Board Index"? I also got booted when I hit "Post a Reply" to write this just now. I'm on an iPad using Safari. Not sure of details, but I can figure them out if necessary. I didn't have this problem yesterday.

Other than that, I'm having fun learning to navigate the little differences!

Yes, Jill I was logged out after clicking "Board Index" too. "Home" works well and doesn't log me out.
This a.m. FF is working. Thank you, Panther, if that was something you changed.

I got logged out too when I went back to board index and when I tried to reply to this. Using Chrome on Windows7 laptop.

FYI, logged in today using an Android tablet and Chrome and this is so, so much more usable and readable than before. Though I do seem to have to log in again every time I actually try to post. Big visual improvement, though!

OK, 3rd time typing this.

IE11 didn't keep me logged in. Maybe that isn't an option right now, and I think I had clicked "remember me" and it didn't.

Firefox allowed me to make one post last night. Now I'm back to the waiting game with the spinning circle if I try to post or use the "Board Index". "Home" was working ok for me to move around and browse the site as read-only using the FF browser. I'm afraid to try that now that I have the endless spinning circle back again.

I'm back to posting this with IE11. I'd typed it once in FF and a second time with IE11 only to find out I wasn't logged in. Very frustrating.

ETA - I posted the above, clicked submit, and I was logged out! This is IE11. I logged back in, clicked on this post to edit and add this, and it again took me back to the log in page. At least it appeared to remember my password. Clicked log in again and it then took me directly to this post with the box already open for the editing.

Logging me out with each post I try to make.
This time I clicked the "Reply" in a thread and it took me back to the log in, and did not remember my password. Had to log in again in order to post this.

I'm on a desktop, Win 7 Ultimate, plenty fast enough with lots of memory, two browsers both having problems with the site. I'm giving up for now, and I hope you get it fixed soon. I'll try to catch up with some of you on facebook.

Sorry, guys :( P will work more on this when he has the time. Hopefully he can get it all ironed out soon. Seamonkey 2.32.1 doesn't seem to have any issues...

I get logged out when I go to the "quick reply" option, full reply (after I log in again) is fine on my laptop. I do have loading lag on my Nexus 7 and Galaxy S3, both using the newest chrome app. I'll get there, I'm not worried. BTW, what is Seamonkey?

I am getting the login cycle as well. Anytime I change pages I am logged out. I'm on an iPhone 5c running I think iOS 7? I need to do the most recent update.

Still researching possible fixes. Did everyone who is affected clear cookies/cache etc.?

Let's see if I can 'quick reply' here ... :)

Yes, I can! AND I can edit it!

Still using Firefox on Windows 7, apparently all is well now for this poster ...

Tada! I can log in from Chrome! Hooray for not having to have two separate browsers open!

ETA: I can login from Chrome, and post one post. But it logs me out as soon as I submit it, and even after I log back in I have no ability to edit. I had to open up Firefox to add this.

So no, it's still not working.
