Two things, given some of the above comments:

- I'm having no problem viewing the ranks.

- Not everyone uses the Button Copy theme (nor the default theme).

The ranks are visible now, but they were not yesterday.

Thanks for resetting to the "old" style look.  It's much easier to deal with for me.

Ranks weren't visible when it went back up, as said above. Only 1 person isn't using button copy.

I accidentally turned mods off and then realized they weren't present and put them back.

Probably because Button Copy is the default, and I'm the only one who bothered to change.

What caused the forum to go down?

I was about to ask the same thing. I almost started to think that it got canned like the bip...

http://biproads.com/?reqp=1&reqr=nzcdYz5hMJWhpJLhpTW6

I remember this happening at least once before.  If I remember right, the forum got hacked in late 2010 and it was down for a few days.  Otherwise it may have just been down for SMF related things and that other time.

There have been a number of times where the forum was hacked and had to be taken into maintenance mode. This time appears to be related to a slight .htaccess change I made regarding a 301/RewriteEngine on command line in the parent directory of the site.

May I respectfully suggest, that with any future outages, to add a note on your Twitter, Facebook, or blog, with some sort of status update, or a "we know its down" note.

I have done that before, but the timing of this outage coincided with a day where I was not going to have internet access outside of my phone. I will again next time we take it into maintenance mode.

My avatar isn't shown in my posts. I looked in my forum profile, and the avatar displays correctly there; just not in my posts.

Other people who seem to have uploaded their own avatar images as I did, rather than selecting one of the forum's own images, seem not to be having this issue.

I can see your avatar. Yesterday this was a problem for me, but it's been okay today.

I have an issue (only me, and only on this computer) where I can't post new topics in this or the Suggestions forum without posting a poll. It's beyond bizarre, because I tried making a topic at work from my phone and it worked just fine.

Just a possible idea that came to mind, have you tried to delete ALL of you cookies for your browser?  Maybe that will fix it.  Or maybe just use CCleaner to manually delete just the aaroads cookie and then try again.  That just might be the trick to fix it on your PC Zeffy.

I'm getting some visual weirdness (the drop-down box doesn't fill the Suggestions and Questions box) but this could be on my end. Other than that everything is fine now.

That's to prevent somebody from bruteforcing access to an account.

It shouldn't take 3 tries, but I've not had that problem since. Maybe it's Win10

Great work on the site as always! :clap:

Bumping this thread. Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but every time I use an emoticon, it appears at the very end of the post, not where I put it in the post. :confused: There seems to be no rhyme or reason to why. It doesn't even work when I use the img tag, but other inline images like work as expected. I've been trying to place emoticons throughout this message, but they still all bunch up at the very bottom. :-/

Let me know if it's a bug, or if I just need to do something stupid like change my theme. Thanks! :spin:
