Forum upgraded May 15, 2017
« on: May 15, 2017, 02:55:29 AM »
New update of the SMF forum (2.0.14) came out today.  I've upgraded us.
Let me know if you notice anything broken.

One major change for this version is a new image proxy which will try to cache remote images that are non-https on the local server so that they can be served up via https when the user is using that method.  It may result in a broken image link until you hit F5 to reload, the first time an image is viewed..

FWIW had an issue logging in this morning - gave me a 'timed out while posting' error.

I usually navigate straight to the forum, and login via lastpass

Same behaviour in both Opera and FF - to login (in FF) I had to go to the home page, then to the forum, then log in manually (OMG!!)

That one has just (within the last 30-45 mins) been fixed by le mouser :D

2017-06-16 0212hrs NZT: Have been experiencing some new (to me) and odd behaviour from the forum website. The examples below may be interrelated:
  • (a) Does not seem to always be automatically picking up my UserID credentials from LastPass (this had previously been working OK) until I force a refresh (Ctrl-R).
  • (b) When posting comments, I have also been getting an intermittent "You are not authorised to access this ...".
  • (c) Preview works OK, but if my cookie has lapsed (they are set to be destroyed after a specific timeout), then previewing comments prior to posting shunts the display to the sign-in page, which stays only momentarily on-screen before being shunted to the upper level general forum index page.
  • (d) When posting comments, I have been getting an intermittent "You have already posted this..." when in fact it had not been posted (yet).

This is using Slimjet (Chrome-based browser).
As far as I am aware, there have been no Slimjet or LastPass updates in the last few days, so the main differences may be due to the more recent forum website update.
