software changes, new server issues

Postby Moderator » 11 months 3 weeks ago (Mon Feb 25, 2019 12:10 pm)

I have noticed a few minor quirks since we made some software changes and migrated to a new server, such as avatars not displaying, smiley problems.
If you find any more please let me know in this thread.
Thanks, M1

I also see that the number of 'who is online' is wrong, very wrong, seems to always indicate 4-5. Say what?
Fix in progress

Looks fine to me, there are crawler bots:
In total there are 6 users online :: 5 registered, 0 hidden and 1 guest (based on users active over the past 5 minutes)
Most users ever online was 763 on Sat Apr 18, 2015 11:22 am

Yes, we know about the BOTs, but we have identified an actual problem that will be fixed, We've brought in CODOH's main tech, he'll take care of it.

That is the alt text showing because of a broken image:

images/ranks/Forum%20Ranks/Gray/PNG/Contributor%20Gray.png

Same reason why you see the emoticon codes instead of the images.

Most of these images, if you lost them, are found in the web archive. Just copy paste the URL into archive.org and it will show.

Example: https://web.archive.org/web/20190218091 ... 20Gray.png

for: images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif

We have: https://web.archive.org/web/20180113011 ... iggrin.gif

They just have to be downloaded and put in the right location.

Probably, if you have a backup, the whole /images/ folder can be reuploaded (just set it to "do not replace files that already exist" if you changed some) and they should all go back :)

This is not related to the forum, but

I was going to make a suggestion to the site


On: https://codoh.com/library/categories/920/

I clicked "report a problem" at the bottom

and a popup came: https://codoh.com/contact-popup?contrib ... pe=PROBLEM

It says:

500
An internal error occured


I was simply going to recommend this article be added: https://codoh.com/library/document/6354/?lang=en

Possibly also: https://codoh.com/library/document/3223/?lang=en

Also, "occurred" is misspelled :P
