View Full Version : Software updated, but not finished yet

Tonight I updated our software for:



Front page / portal
Bulletin board
Photo gallery


There are some known issues such as the random photo gallery missing on the front page, the smaller ad images missing for the CO4x4 sponsors, the forum summary isn't quite right (no spaces between categories), the UserCP link in the Forum Jump menu still isn't working, etc. If you see other problems please post them in this thread. I'm not finished with the update, just finished for tonight and I believe we're at least functional again. I'll post updates here as I finish implementing the changes.

Right now most of the new features are turned off as I focus on getting the layout and functionality right. Some cool stuff still to come!

Again, the updates are NOT finished yet.

Highlighted items above have been fixed, still picking away at the rest. Should be caught up on everything this weekend.

I haven't received any bounced email errors and it sounds like at least some people are receiving notices. Have you checked your spam / bulk mail / deleted items / trash folder to see if CO4x4 email is being treated as spam?

X2 here,

thanks

Are you referring to the buddy list module on the left? That just shows who's online at the moment from your buddy list, no the whole list (perhaps I should rename that module). Go to the Quick Links menu above and click Open Contacts Popup. Is that what you're looking for?


Image deletion from gallery no longer working.
I know we sorted this out already, but for the benefit of others to delete images in the photo gallery you need to click on the image, then click the Image Tools dropdown menu, select Edit Image, and you can delete it there. I realize it's a pain because you have to do this for each image, but there's an update on the way that should make this easier. Another suggestion I've read, if you have several images to delete you can create a category, move the images to the new category, and then delete the category.



Can't see who voted for what on polls anymore.

Not all polls show you who voted for what, that's a poll setting. Are you saying that setting is no longer available or that the setting isn't working? Try creating one in th test forum and I'll take a look.

Use to be able to see who voted what on Lunatic Fringe and can't see it anymore. Not sure about the setting or any of that other stuff as I have never started a poll. Just noticed that every poll I have looked at since the move can't see who voted what.

Since the server move, there is a lag time in Private messages arriving in your private message folder. Used to be immediate. You can be in a Forum, you see a notification of a private message. Go to your messages, not there. Back to forum, notification there, back to message folder not there. It takes a while for it to get to your message folder even though the notification shows it is there. It is not a big deal but definitely happens. I am not bitching just making it known if it has not already be mentioned.

Random photo gallery pics on the front page are working again.

Category spacings are back on the forum summary page.

Started looking into some of the new board features.

It may have been an artifact of the move or software upgrade, I don't know. It appears the option is still there for creating a public poll, but at this time I can't change a poll from private to public (or vice versa).

This isn't something I've experienced yet, but thanks for pointing it out so I can watch for it.

Are you refreshing the page in your inbox? Could be a cached page you're seeing.

I am doing nothing different then I did before the move. It is just an observation, I am not complaining. Just reporting.

Fixed.

However attachments and photo gallery uploads were broken on the last server move. I fixed the attachments with a bandaid but can't fix the photo gallery. It's a server config problem, so the server admin is working on it. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.

I don't know what's going on, they didn't inform me of any planned outages and the server config still hasn't been fixed. :mad: I liked the last server they had us on better, it was quick and everything worked. This one seems to be nothing but problems.

Hope they are giving you credit for the downtime, and then some more for the headache.

Photo Gallery is working again and I removed the attachment bandaid, so we should be back to normal. At least as far as features working, still seems slow at the moment. Edit: Speed seems good now?

I know this may be to little too late but I'm pretty happy with my server provider.

I got a lil pissy cause it went down twice in the last couple months but they got it right back up.

PM me if your looking for a different server provider:beer:

It was down last night and again this morning... I check back 10 minutes later, and it is running again??

And still running slow from what I have seen... The time it takes for pages to load is really slow... I run Comcast, so I check through other sites to make sure it is not my internet connection.
