Re: Post-server move issues
It turns out rev_posix used a nonstandard forum migration procedure (copy+paste, instead of install and import).  I'm going to look into this.

Re: Post-server move issues
The little orange "jump to first unread post" in the thread just jumps to the first unread post from before the move, it's not updating.

So that's what's going on. Explains a lot. Good catch.

It's not just "new post" buttons, and it's not the first unread post from before the move, either.
Links to specific posts aren't working; it always takes you to the first post on that page.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

diaspora.hard-light.net is back to the old, pre-redesign website.

Thanks for that. I'll see about getting it fixed.

The [size] tag doesn't seem to work. No matter what number I put there, the resulting text is always 5pt.
The textarea for posting can't be resized with the bar at the bottom (the builtin resizing of Firefox and Chrome still works).

EDIT: Is there anything we can do to help?

Re: Post-server move issues
I've figured out the hosted website issues.  All of the hosted websites dated from our earlier backup on July 30, 2016.  The current backups are available but I have to restore them manually for each website.  The diaspora, fsport, and scroll websites have been brought up to date.  (Although scroll is redirecting to the main page for reasons I don't understand at the moment.)

I will eventually make my way through each website, but feel free to squawk and I'll put yours at the top of the queue.

Also, if you need FTP access to your mod, let me know and I'll enable your account.

Re: Post-server move issues
The tabs on the top of the site desperately need updating and pruning. Several dead links in the External sites part, and I guess the hosted projects part is a work in progress? Cause if it's not...
Mantis is barely used anymore by the SCP, since most of it seems to have transferred to git, yet there is no link to git in there.

Register at http://www.hard-light.net/users/ for a website account. Those accounts belonging to responsible and identifiable forumites (i.e. use your forum email address) may be granted access to modify stuff belonging to the mainpage. :)

Seems like we lost an whole set of CSS files among other things.. Sandwich, what did you do?

Nada. I haven't been involved in the move at all, besides preparing the new website. I'll gladly look into the missing CSS once I'm told that things shouldn't be broken anymore but still are for some reason. ;) In the meantime... KCCO. ;)

Re: Post-server move issues
Can't seem to upload a new avatar, there's a message says the attachments directory isn't writable, or something.

P.S. Keep up the good work getting the site up and running 100% again, and thanks to all the staff for looking out for the future.

Is fs2netd.game-warden.com part of this move as well?  It's been down since last week.  I've been distracted by a funeral last week and just now am catching up on the fact that there even was a server move.

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Are the pictures of "highlight" projects (and the pictures are links to the appropriate threads) going to return to the top of the page like they were before this move?

I'm going to do a forum reinstallation either today or tomorrow, just like I did with the wiki.  That should fix all the formatting and bookmarking issues.

Is fs2netd.game-warden.com part of this move as well?  It's been down since last week.

As far as I know that is not managed by any of the HLP staff.  Do you know who's in charge of it?

http://wingsofdawn.hard-light.net/ there used to be a page of mine here. Now it just shows a half working version of the main page.

A number of subdomains were misconfigured like this.  A two-part fix was required.  I just finished fixing all of them, and I'm waiting on rev_posix for the final reconfiguration.

Yes.  Sandwich will take care of that after the forums are fixed.

Yes.  That's not something you need to ask permission for.

The IPs for game-warden.com and our new hard-light.net server differ by one digit (GW is 66.187.72.108; new HLP is 66.187.72.107), so it stands to reason that there might be some sort of connection there...

Next that signatures are not shown entirely, some formats in the forum are also broken.

Try to use another font size and you have to use a magnifying glass to actually read it.

If you want to know, what my nickname means, -chen is a german diminutive term, so you can translate Novachen as something like Little Nova or Novalet.
Even my original meaning of this name is more like "Sweet pretty deadly (Super)Nova" ;).
