Postby nall » Fri May 19, 2017 3:05 am

Hi all - we did a minor upgrade to our Forum and Wiki software today. So if you run into some weird bugs, let us know!

"Jump to Page" is fine at the bottom of the page, intrusive at the top.

I can't get the wiki to confirm my added changes.
South Park is way funnier than Family Guy.
Also Mr. Garrison and Donald Trump are two SEPARATE people with completely different career backgrounds.

This issue existed before the upgrade, and has not been fixed.

When I log in, I enter my username and my password. Then nothing happens. I could sit here all day and nothing happens. My work-a-round is: "x" out of the login screen, click on "more," then "forum." Once the forum page loads, now for the very first time does my username appear in the upper right corner. If I didn't "x" out of the login screen, I would be stalled there all the time. Thank you.

While the "View more smiles" hasn't worked in some time, and still doesn't work. the first "smiley" screen has some issues. Six (6) of them only post a square box, and not the smily. Here is a screen shot. Note the six similes in the boxes. They are the ones that I am referring to:

Also, in order to post the above image, I had to use image tags. Well, I did it manually because as you can see from the next screen shot, the various tags are missing! You know, image, url, underline, bold, etc.:

It works for me, but some of the smilies associated with the alt texts for them are missing. I'm shocked that :D :) :( :o :? and :wink: are all missing. :o

Here are "more smilies"

The second page has four more smilies on it.

I've always been able to open the smiley page but clicking on them has never done anything.

The Wiki is new, so I don't think the mods there can fix it. I know I can't. Nall? Dunno.

That being said, sometimes it takes several minutes for the server to accept posts, and sometimes it tells me thhis:
Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@mtvi.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
but later I find the post went through.

But what about the white side borders that weren't on the computer that I usually use the Internet on? Also should the wiki pages show pictured links in rows of 4 instead of 3?

Those white side borders are part of the page design. If you didn't see them before, it's because you had a lower-res monitor than you do now, or your browser had zoomed into the page before, but isn't now. And yes, they've been part of the design since 2014.

I think it was a lower-res monitor that I previously used because that would explain a lot.

I replied to your PM; we're aware some people are having this problem and trying to track it down.
