• XenForo had been updated to 2.1.2. Report issues here.

Forum & Chat & Main Site Complaint Thread 9

Updated to Xenforo 1.5.0. Would have given more warning, but there were security issues among the other things.

https://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-1-4-6-released.96135/
https://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-1-4-7-released.98038/

https://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-1-5-0-released.103412/

... Don't need a separate thread for chat complaints at this point. So I'll just make a new numbered thread when needed from here on out.

Known issues:
  • forum notifications disappeared.
  • frequent chat dropouts
  • user-created rooms won't let other users join

I got a question: I noticed at the top of each thread now, left cover below the title, there's a "Add Tags" option. How do we use that, and why its useful ?

Few bugs noticed in chat recently.

1. Chat randomly disconnects a user quite frequently.
2. A user is able to create a new private room but then no other user can join it as long as the user that created it is present in that room. Nothing happens when they use the /join command.
3. Onions are appearing weird when used with the /me command. Example:

Busy-Kyuu tests <img class="emoticon" alt=":TdT:" title=":TdT:" src="/candyshop/cpme/emoticons/TdT.gif" />

Here's a screenshot of it as well. Hope it helps :bow:

Getting weirdness when posting

Code:
/me is trying to trace the location of some Japanese walnut drink: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/COYZ00vUwAAByX6.jpg

PS, the actual walnut sake is here:

https://xenforo.com/community/threads/thread-tagging.100267/

As implemented, it's basically another means to group threads/posts.

I read the first page of the thread https://forum.canta-per-me.net/threads/fictionjunction-live-different-stage-presence-earlier-later.6891/ , hit the back button, then reload on the browser and the unread messages dot disappeared, even though I hadn't loaded or read the second page.
Then it's obviously a simple timestamp comparison. I wouldn't do anything different if I had programmed it.

This should be fixed. It might require an f5 to pull the updated script.

Hmm. #2 is probably default permissions on created rooms.
#1 might be server settings.

I'll look into both as time permits.

Thanks Sudrien, hope it goes well :bow:

Searching for the thread on the launch of the believe single - searching on the word believe in the title alone failed with a not found error, searching with double quotes failed as the word appearing as too common.

The actual thread title has the word believe in double quotes.

Not much I can do about search functionality.

@Sudrien - would nonetheless appreciate if you could pass such observations on to the developers.

Also, how is one supposed to search for a member when one only knows part of the name? The search only seems to work if you know the first two letters of their username.
 
There was a configuration issue that messed site access up for ISPs with IPv6 support. The fix is working its way through DNS.

there is an error when trying to load the main site

Warning: require(/home/kerahna/canta-per-me.net/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/kerahna/canta-per-me.net/index.php on line 6

Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required '/home/kerahna/canta-per-me.net/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/php5/lib/pear') in /home/kerahna/canta-per-me.net/index.php on line 6)
 
WordPress fixed. Dangers of a forum that doesn't have it's own automatic updater: my own mistakes.

No data was lost.

Hmm, I've stopped loading a style sheet or something in iceweasel/firefox, but only for the forum message areas, not in the user listings.

Edit - must have just been a corrupted cache due to a power failure, clearing the cache and reloading fixed things.

@Sudrien these are still issues for me - searching for a member's name based on a part of a name works in general search but not in member search.

Could there be a separate pinned thread for chat issues please, since the forum thread gets locked and replace with major forum updates?

For chat, I noticed that in a /me line, strike-out, underline and bold showed:

-strike-out text-
+underlined text+
*bold text*

rather than actual strike-out, underline, and bold.

We just had a mass chat disconnection, and when attempting to reconnect I had a few tries that resulted in "Status: 2" messages, and when finally connected saw some chat text from 5 days ago.
