Forums Fixed & YACSWTF



  • The Forums, which apparently were broken for a little while, are now fixed. This only seemed to impact people who weren't logged in and didn't have any cookies from CS. Which is why it took a little while for me to believe that it was an actual problem. (Works fine for me, when I'm logged in and out!)

    So, here's what the problem (Yet Another Community Server WTF) was. A while back, I went changed the "Post Edit Limit" setting (now 20 mins) in the "Forums Settings" page in the Admin section . This, somehow, set the "defaultThemeId" to 0 or something. That's my guess, at least... as just a minute or two ago, I went to the "Look and Feel" page, hit the Save button (without touching anything), and now it (seemingly) works. Yay.



  •  The real WTF is that the software doesn't check for an invalid theme and choose a nice default in case of an error...

     

    But then again, I learned this the hard  way programming my own themed application... lol



  • I wondered where that "theme=palegreenandsimple" or whatever it was in the URL came from.

    Thanks, definitely working now.



  • A prolonged edit limit? Whee, now let's check if it works!

    Addendum: it works!


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    Now all it needs is for a change to the mailer part of the boards so those of us who follow by email are aware of such edits...

    With the appropriate remote MVC implementation, the e-mail in your inbox or even en route would automatically update to match the revised status of the forum post.

    WTF?  Is this a joke?

    Of course it's not. You just have to use the following email:

    MIME-version: 1.0
    Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="example.com_email_someID"
    

    --example.com_email_someID
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

    Please go to http://example.com/viewEmail.php?id=someID to view this message.

    --example.com_email_someID
    Content-Type: text/html; charset="US-ASCII"
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

    That would certainly make searching your e-mail a bit of a nightmare.

    not really, you just convert it to text and save it in a large text file with other emails, documents and pictures. then you use ssds to search through them. rather simple.

    No, you make a video of your screen while looking at the forums and then search that later.
