Re: Post-server move issues
Yeah, that'll probably remain as-is until I fully recreate a theme for the forums. Rorry!

Do we have an ETA for that? :nervous:

Re: Post-server move issues
Another probably - related mobile issue is that text doesn't seem to scale properly. Even with the quick reply fix it's still microscopic.

 
Re: Post-server move issues
Maybe the solution is to get a real computer with a proper web browser.  You damn kids and your fancy-pants flip-phones....

Re: Post-server move issues
The captcha for editing wiki links is broken, so I can't actually edit links.

What, specifically, is broken?  Error message?  Screenshot?

I couldn't attach a screenshot (another bug?) so I'll put it on Discord.

Sandwich/Goober5000,

A suggestion for donations:  maybe add a "Colossus" option at $10? 

In keeping with the humorous donation descriptions, it could read something like "Hey, this big ship failed...but your big donation won't fail to help keep HLP afloat".

Re: Post-server move issues
I'll leave that to Sandwich.  Although I think the "Colossus" option should be a lot larger. :p

I've also been investigating the issue where the browser doesn't jump to the correct post.  I can't figure out what's wrong.  The pages have the proper
Code: [Select]
<a id="anchor"></a>lines, and the anchors have the IDs specified properly.  I would hope that Sandwich's new theme from scratch (currently under construction) will fix this, but on the other hand it doesn't appear to be broken in the current theme.  Anyone have any ideas? :confused:

Re: Post-server move issues
It's a CSS problem. Remove float: left from the post_wrapper class.

EDIT: Here are more CSS fixes to fix the post appearance:
Code: [Select]
.post_wrapper { float: none; margin: 8px 4px; }
.moderatorbar { clear: both; }
.windowbg, .windowbg2 { background: none; }

Re: Post-server move issues
Ah, looks like that fixed it.  Too bad I can't give you another gold star. :)

EDIT: I removed the background: none change because that just completely removed the HLP-style color shading.

EDIT2: Minor nitpick: the browser doesn't jump to the top of the post, but rather the location where the text starts.  Would be nice to adjust that.  Or maybe that's one of those things that'll be fixed in the new theme.

Re: Post-server move issues
Ok, I found out that some of the directory paths hadn't been changed on the move to the new server.  That looks like it's fixed almost all of the remaining issues. :yes:

Re: Post-server move issues
Yeah, I just had a bad mod conflict that made a bunch of boards inaccessible.  All that has now been fixed.

The only remaining issue, AFAIK, is the forum registration as described here.  I'll need someone to help with that because I'm not familiar with .htaccess.

The wiki captcha is still broken.

Re: Post-server move issues
With the mediaWiki update to version 1.29, using MathCaptcha now requires installing the Math extension and an entire rabbit hole of dependencies.  Considering that wiki registration is now done manually, I just disabled the captcha.  Try again.

Works; thanks.
I just remembered that email notifications are still MIA though.

Re: Post-server move issues
Email notifications for the forum?  Rev_posix determined that our hosting provider is on somebody's blacklists, so emails may or may not go through.  Yahoo lets them through; Hotmail doesn't.  I asked him to coordinate with MatthewPapa to get the host off the blacklist.

Not sure if it's already been reported - but the next page / previous page arrows for threads longer than a page are missing.
