Known forum bugs!

Postby Steve » November 14th, 2007, 6:24 pm

There are a few bugs on the forum, that many people have complained about. These will be fixed as soon as possible, however for the moment, we want to make you aware of the bugs and how to solve/prevent them.

Back to the forum index.

A lot of links to forums and topics take you back to the forum index, however, this most commonly happens when you try to submit a post. To prevent losing your post, simply click back as soon as possible, most browsers will have saved you text on the page. However, if your browser doesn't do this, try using FireFox, of the latest version of IE (check links at bottom of the page). If your current browser doesn't do this, and you don't want to change, try getting into the habit of copying your post before post, so if the bug occurs you can go back and simply paste it back in.

Code page.

Sometimes, if you go to edit a post, the forums sends you to a page full of coding, simply click back, and click edit again.

Upgrade to live page.

All of the forums are not available to post in by non-Live! members (apart from the Live! section) now. Lots of non-Live! members are having the 'Upgrade to live' page appears when they post, which is preventing the post from being processed. If this occurs, simply go back, and click submit again. However, if it does this again, go back, copy your post, refresh the page, paste your post and submit again.

Also, take into consideration what was mentioned about different browsers in the previous bug.

Guest post.

A lot of members post's appear as 'Guest' posts. The cause of this is not yet known, however, I'm pretty sure that when this happens, a 'Username' field appears above the 'Subject' field; if this happens, simply put your username in. Other than that, you can simply post again to inform the other people posting in the thread that it's you, or PM a Moderator and they can delete the guest post for you.

Updates not appearing on home page.

If this occurs; try refreshing the page. If they're still not showing then simply go to your control panel (link is at the bottom of the page) and there will be a link to a forum topic regarding updates.

Avatar not loading.

A few users are uploading new avatars, and getting the page that says it has been uploading successfully and it changing on their control panel; but not actually updating on the forums. We're looking into how to fix this.

Steve,
AC.
