I can't see my sent PMs.

Mine are working fine.

Perhaps you didn't have the "Save a copy in my outbox" box checked when sending?

I think I recall seeing this before the whole legal thing happened, but the text at the bottom of the page is doubled up:

Interstates clinched: 4, 57, 275 (IN-KY-OH), 465 (IN), 640 (TN), 985
State Interstates clinched: I-26 (TN), I-75 (GA), I-75 (KY), I-75 (TN), I-81 (WV), I-95 (NH)

I decided to peek in the inspector and it's because line-height is set to 0. Removing that line fixes it, however there's this fun notice:

As I mentioned before, the 'mod' was designed for the other 'style' of themes in SMF 2.0, and not this style.  I think modifying that would not be an issue here if it fixes this minor issue since both will still be displayed.

However, instead of removing that line, I changed it to '1', and that fixed this issue. :D

Thanks for point me in the right direction to get that fixed.  :cheers:

(Might have to do a 'CTRL+F5' to force a refresh to see the fix.)

I got it for the first time a few days ago on Safari laptop. It has not replaced the parked domain message – I've still gotten that once after I first saw the connection problem message.

I get it a ton, mostly happening when I hit the go back button.

It cannot happen via back button for me, as the back button doesn't reload the page when I do it.

I usually browse using the iOS Safari browser via the "Recent Unread Topics" page. The update to iOS 16 was at about the same time as the forum hiccup, so I'm not sure which caused it. But now every time I hit the back button, I do get an updated page. Sometimes it only shows a few fresh posts, ignoring the others that were there a few minutes ago. Not at all a big deal, just....different.

#185
Starting about a week ago, whenever I make a search, click one of the results, and then go back to the searched page using the "back" button, it says this:

"The server appears to be down, or your connection isn't working as expected. Please try again later. Your submission failed. Please go back and try again."

Previously, it would ask me if I wanted to resend a form if I had visited more than one page after the search (or skip that question entirely if I only viewed one page), and if I said yes, it would go back to the search.

EDIT: This no longer seems to be an issue.

Here's another thread where the topic titles got screwed up.

I checked off several topics to receive both alerts and e-mails, but no e-mails were received even though there are new posts in those topics. They're not in my junk folder either. Also I was having the same problem in the old forum but I hoped it would be corrected with this revision.

Emails are currently broken.  No idea why.  So, don't expect any from the forum at this time.

Quote from: kernals12 on March 27, 2024, 02:18:25 PMI tried doing that. I still can't log in from my computer. It won't accept my password and password reset emails won't go through

Emails being sent are still broken sadly.  No idea why.

Are you sure you fully cleared your cookies?  Have you tried a 'Private' window in your browser to see if you can login via that on your PC?  If it works in a Private window, that means not all cookies from the old forum have been cleared out in the normal windows.

Happy to report that I restored email functionality from the Forum. Let us know if you encounter anymore problems with receiving alerts.

That's amazing! Thanks, Alex! What was the issue?

The mail server settings needed to be reset and changed to the correct mail type. I also had to reset the email password. Took three tests to get everything working.  :thumbsup:

Yes, the e-mails starting coming today. Thank you!

I'm seeing ads again, even though I'm logged in. Is there any way to fix this?

(That said, the ads have no idea what my age or gender is. It's kind of hilarious.)

I've just tested the settings, and I'm not sure how you got any ads while being logged in.  Only the 'Parking Lot' group should get any till they get 3+ posts.

Maybe it has something to do with what day it is?

No.  I give you my word, there's nothing to do with that day on the site.  Especially since we're still not fully back up to snuff.
