Oldiesmann: FYI, if anyone is having trouble seeing the latest posts, go to the Look and Layout section of your profile and make sure the "Show most recent posts at the top in topic view" box isn't checked. There's a bug with that setting

Site Upgrade Tonight

Just a heads up, I'll be upgrading the site to SMF 2.1 RC3 later tonight. This version includes numerous bug fixes as well as some enhancements related to GDPR (built-in support for a privacy policy, the ability to download your profile data and some other things). The upgrade shouldn't take more than 10 minutes or so, but I thought I'd give everyone a heads up anyway.

Upgrade is complete. Let me know if you run into any issues.

Issue number one...when i click my curser on my avatar name main page to the left, under " user " says " page isn't working "

Issue number two...when i click on my name at top of left of page next to messages and alerts, says " loading " then gets stuck on " loading "...Cant get into my profile...

Both were working fine before the update...


Haven't checked anything else yet as it is 7.am here in UK, i have only just arrived in here...

Oh also just noticed when i click on who is " online " members names bottom of page, says " page is not working "

Sorry but dont like all these " updates " when things were working fine in the first place...

Okay, site will take my posts, but insists on going back to page one when I reply. I do not have access to my account settings and the logout button at the top of the page is missing.

Profile-related issues have been fixed. I had to manually edit one of the files to add the country flags back and forgot a } in one spot.

It's in your user menu now, though I can put it back at the top if you'd prefer.

Vanilla-Jackie

Michael ( Oldiesmann ) yes now seems all as is meant to be, thank you... :thumbup: I of course will be one of the first to let you know if i spot anything else that is out of place.. ;)

@MarsGal  If you look top left of page, click your username and there will be a dropdown menu containing the logout.  ;)

You cannot see attachments on this board.

Michael, whenever I complete and post a message, I end up anywhere across the board and cannot get to where I posted the message. I've gone to 2016, 2018, or back at the homepage. Anywhere but where I posted the message.

Oldiesmann

I'll have to look into that. I was under the impression that the issue with it not redirecting to the proper place was fixed.

MarsGal

Gosh, way up at the tippy-top. Never noticed it. Thanks!

Michael, this morning I posted in Paintshop Pro. When I clicked post, I landed on page one, August 27th. I can see where I posted on the forum page. Upon clicking on that, I ended up on page one, September 2016.

angelface555

When I clicked post on today's post to you, I ended here instead of seeing my post today.

I believe the problem may lie in the upper left Unread Posts and Updated Topics and making sure both are clicked to show plus signs rather than minus signs. I'll see if it has any effect on this post.

angelface555

No, still returning to different times instead of where I'm posting.

lurk

Testing.  Just to see where I end up.  :D

Well I ended up at this post, so replying to myself.

@angelface555  Just to be sure, you have this set in your profile,

"Return to topics after posting by default."

Click your user name top left of screen.  In the dropdown menu choose Look and Feel, then make sure the box next to "Return to topics after posting by default." is ticked and click save at bottom.

MarsGal

Still having trouble with the posting settings. I have both return to topics and show most recent post at top checked in my profiles and I tried the plus positive beside Updated Topics. Nothing works. What I did find is that if I click on the oldest post page number than back to post page 1, I can see my post. So, for now, that is my workaround to the problem.

Quote from: MarsGal on September 11, 2020, 07:07:18 AMshow most recent post at top

Think this is where the bug arises.  @MarsGal  Could you please revert that setting so the latest post show at bottom and see if you end up in the right place please.

MarsGal

No lurk, it does exactly what it is supposed to with the "newest post on top" checked off. Checking the box does allow for my post to show on top, but only if I go to another page (I just go to the last one) and then click back to page one. Then it is there. Extra step, a work around, but it is a little disconcerting to not see my post at first. I had thought I lost it the first few times it happened.

I get a little persistent because I know if I can't do something one way, I can usually find another way. At least my post doesn't disappear entirely. I also checked that it wasn't a browser problem. Right now I am using Ubuntu with Firefox as the browser. I also use Windows Edge on, of course, the Windows 10 machine.

Good morning MarsGal. You're lucky. I was unable to see my posts nor follow any links. The only seeming workaround was to change my name and open an entirely new account.
