Does Drupal not use cookies?  Because I have to re-login everytime I'm about to post, and this is just when I realize that anonymouse comments don't get saved.

There is a cache problem with several of the older posts. The glitch is as of February 8, 2010. Anything created before that date might pose problems, but it's not a predictor either.

I like clicking on the "Recent posts" link on the left sidebar to see what's new on MGo.  But recently it will tell me that a new reply is in an old, old post, like stuff from July.  Then I'll click on it and there is no new reply.  What's up with that?

A total guess, but I think it may be a result of someone reviewing and posting anonymously (remember Brian set it up to have their ID as "anonymous coward" but it never worked and doesn't show up). The comment control program still counts these comments (thus show up as new) in the total number of comments, but they don't appear.

Hopefully, Brian will get this fixed once the season is over and he isn't working 20 hrs a day

IE7 to Firefox.  When hitting the "# new" under comments in the recent posts section, under IE7 it would take me directly to the 1st new comment (which is what I want); under Firefox, it takes me to the last (or most recent) new comment, which I do not want.

That "Speak Up Against Reckless Driving" ad keeps redirecting me to a blank white page that only shows that banner on top. WTF? In order to avoid this I have to stop the page from loading all the way. Really really annoying. Maybe it's just my browser, not sure.

The green points activity list shows up in the MGoBoard sidebar thing if I vote on a comment and then click on >> to see previous board posts.

Not a huge deal, but I'm running the IE9 beta and things look pretty solid overall, however the WYSIWYG editor doesn't function for comments, it just shows a dotted line around the object/text box, but does not open it to allow you to enter any text.

Plain text works.....obviously.


October 1st, 2010 at 11:47 AM ^

In 5 minutes I have seen 3 commenters who used blockquotes and added an extra, empty blockquote at the bottom of their post.  I don't know if this is a WYSIWYG quote-button thing, or if everybody is as late to the coffeepot as I am this morning, but it's starting to look systemic.

Also, I notice daily that the "Comment Viewing Options" box is in a fight with the bottom-most comment on any given page, especially when said comment is "new" and has the associated style applied.  I'm always in Safari on a Mac. (By "in a fight", I mean that the top border of the CVO box is pretty much a strikethrough on the comment's timestamp, reply button, points label, and "new" tag.)

The link to the #comments section from mainpage stories (if you click on the "comments" link at the bottom of a story) does not re-align the page to the comments section, just opens the comments below the story.  So the page reloads, and opens the comments, but does not set the comments to the top of the page like it used to.

I don't see a "comments" tag in the source code.  The #new link works, since there is an "a id=new" in the code.

Firefox 3.6.x FWIW.

My account page has me down as a member for 24 weeks, even though I posted a diary on 9/11/09 (60+ weeks ago) and registered some time before that.  Come to think of it, the 24 weeks may not even be advancing at this point.

Nevertheless, this could also be happening with other users.


November 24th, 2010 at 5:01 PM ^

Site cache issue. There's a group of pages that tend to fail, reverting back to February. It's always a pain when I upload diaries, as my "diary blog" also pops up with a February post as most recent.

You'll probably notice that you appear to sign off when you open your account page. If you click log on, without even putting in your user name and password, you should see the proper 1 year 13 weeks.

I'm not sure if this is still monitored, but it seems like the right place to ask. When I go to MGoBoard, I can read every topic on the first page just fine, but when I click on either the "2" or ">" at the bottom, it takes me to what I think are a list of the recent front-page topics.

Any help you can give to fix this is appreciated. I'm running Windows 7 and IE8.

Yeah, I'm seeing this all over the place, from the mini MGoBoard box in the sidebar to the main MGoBoard page to the Diaries box (also on the sidebar). 

The URL of the "next page" link works just fine; if I navigate to "/mgoboard?page=1", I get exactly what I wanted. It seems like some javascript is jacking the link and trying to do some fancy AJAX stuff, though... when I click the little box with the "2" in it, the page doesn't refresh, the URL doesn't change, but the main content frame is replaced by a list of the Most Recent Diaries.

Meanwhile, when I click the little double arrow in the "Diaries" box in the sidebar, it works as expected most of the time, but I sometimes get way more than 5 new links, and they do not seem to correspond to anything recent or popular.  I'm not sure if there's anything different about the starting conditions for these two outcomes.

I'd be glad to help try and sort through what's happening, but I just really can't figure out where the code is that does the linkjacking.

Also, I've just observed that the MGoBoard mini-box seems to work just fine, when I'm actually viewing the MGoBoard itself. If I'm viewing the front page or any content page (diary, board post, front page post), the mini-box fails as described above.

I'm on a Mac, in Safari, Chrome, and FF.

I get this error message when I try to upload an avatar:

  • The selected file /tmp/head_0.jpg could not be uploaded, because the destination sites/ is not properly configured.
  • Failed to upload the picture image; the pictures directory doesn't exist or is not writable.

I cleared my cache per a previous suggestion, but no luck there either.  Thanks for your help.
