IPB Update July 2013 (to version 3.4.5) - BUGS Only

268 posts in this topic

I recently noticed that I am no longer receiving email replies to posts. I always have in the past.

I looked over my Notification Settings, and they seem correct.

This is what I have checked for email under Topics and Posts:

Auto follow topics I reply to. Notification frequency: Immediate

Notification method to use for replies to followed topics (should this one also be checked for "Notification List"?)

Am I missing something?

Thank You...

(I hope I'm in the right forum for this question)

the mark as reads seams to be broken. After clicking it I still see the forums highlighted.

Try marking it from the forum index view. Click on the orange folder icon to the left of the forum name. I've been using this and it works fine.

I have a few forums (Windows 7, XP, 2000/NT, and a few others) that I used to get a weekly digest of. I've noticed that I haven't gotten this in a few weeks. I checked my spam folder, there's nothing there...I checked the forums and it seems that I'm still subscribed and should be receiving updates, but I haven't gotten anything in a while.

Is this a known issue? Anyone else having this problem?

If you have a post with code box in it, and you edit it, with every edit it adds a new empty line on top.

Mentioned by Jaclaz in http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/163472-ipb-update-july-2013-to-version-345-bugs-only/page-2#entry1046894

[Edit1] to test.

[Edit2] It seems to do it on the second Edit and afterwards.

[Edit3] Opera Presto last version here, by the way.

[Edit4] I never ever touched the code box.

[Edit5] This is the last edit; I'm not so sure any more about [Edit2].

There seems to be a problem with the counter that reports the number of users currently viewing a given thread:

post-287775-0-06154800-1382824991_thumb.

It reported a grand total of zero users of any kind, but this cannot be correct since I (obviously) am reading the thread (and also signed in).

The behavior is inconsistent -- when I entered this Bug Report thread to write this post, the counter said there that there was one user (me), so it doesn't happen all the time. But I do notice that, for example, the counter frequently fails to detect (or at least to report) my presence.

Not sure if this issue carries over to the counter that gives the number of times a thread has been viewed during its existence.

It's impossible to zoom when viewing a mobile version of the MSFN forum. If possible, please change it. Disabling zoom-in functionality on mobile sites is a big no-no :}

Just to update, it's been about a month and I still haven't received any notifications at all. Is this a site-wide issue?

Still no notifications here either. Plus I noticed a issue a little while ago.

post-6960-0-52396600-1383781993_thumb.pn

In this picture here the quick links highlighted are broken and have been since the "upgrade".

The first one works but the others give the oops something went wrong error...

As a personal note I reallly hate ipb for the sh*tty force job they did on this so called upgrade. Really Microsoft-ish of them.

I just got notification about this reply so notification does work. Checked links you said are broken and all 3 works.

Since you're at it, xper, please do take a look at this issue:

Hmmm that's still broken huh. I found it by accident awhile ago, but I guess not many people click on that one.

Ref post #87 above;

I find that of the three links shown, MSFN Forum/Member Contributed Projects/Windows Post-Install Wizard (WPI),

only the Member Contributed Projects does not carry to destination.

This occurs when clicking on the link as is it as shown in the post #87 pic, and also when clicking on the link

underlaying the text Member Contributed Projects as seen within the headings on the Board Forum webpage, e.g.;

"

Other Operating Systems

Member Contributed Projects

nLite

vLite

Windows Post-Install Wizard (WPI)

XPize

" etc...

Also, the full error message shown is;

"Oops! Something went wrong!

[#10339]

The topic filter settings you submitted are not valid. Please go back and reset your topic filter settings."

I'm not aware that my 'topic filter settings' are anything but the (non-touched) default for members.

Behaviour occurs with/without FF24 adBlocking plug-in active, also occurs when viewed in IE8.

Addendum1:

I find that all URL's of the format;

http://www.msfn.org/board/forum/0-

to

http://www.msfn.org/board/forum/176-

either complete, or do not complete (due to probably not existing), or do not allow completion due to

user (membership levels) permissions,

except;

http://www.msfn.org/board/forum/102-member-contributed-projects/

which alone gives the error message;

The topic filter settings you submitted are not valid. Please go back and reset your topic filter settings.

Therefore there would appear to be a genuine Board fault affecting that particular forum URL/Directory.

Cheers

@xper Addendum2: Possibly relevant;

xper,

On 11/6 you posted that YOU are getting notifications, but clearly several of us on this thread alone are not. I haven't been getting any for months, but used to.

Does this suggest there there may still be a problem with something on the site?

I am happy to try changing settings, or whatever you think might help, but need some instructions / suggestions. Forgive my directness (is that a word?), but telling us that you get notifications, doesn't help.

It's very difficult to use MSFN if one doesn't know when there is a reply.

Thanks in advance for your help... HELP :boring:

Ref above post #94;

PM sent to mitchsc... and some others are looking at this.

Hopefully within 5 to 7 days useful information will be forthcoming that will allow

people to determine where the problem is occuring, or at least where to start looking.

EDIT 21 Nov; So far, no settings problem found. A testing process has begun.

I'm viewing the forum using Opera Mobile Classic and there's one extremely annoying bug.

Just have a look at this :

This "loading" message doesn't only appear twice but also doesn't disappear from the screen as it's supposed to. Once displayed, it stays this way making browsing rather difficult :}

Ref above post#98;

Mmmm, two won't die 'loading' overlays - I notice (when FF add-on AdBlockPlus is disabled) that usually there

are two advertisement block inlays in MSFN webpages, having sometimes overly animated content.

tomasz86, do you have any adblocking going on in 'Opera Mobile Classic' browser?; - if not, perhaps scan this;

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2270990

Of course, the URL's from which the advertisements are being served may change occaisionally, therefore

be prepared to 'view the source' HTML of any particular (MSFN) webpage to see what (new) advertisement URL's

have been placed within that particular webpage...

Regarding not getting email notifications of posts...

xper: Just checked in and noticed your post on 11/10. I have still not received any notifications as of today 11/12.

Many thanks to buyerninety for info in PM. One thing off the top without any testing: I have not been logging out of the forum. Maybe that's the whole problem for me. I shall do so now.

Thanks all...
