Forum Issues

Postby SavannahSparkles » Tue Oct 01, 2019 2:30 pm

Is anyone else experiencing forum issues? These are the problems I've been encountering for the last little while and I'm wondering if it's just me..

For about a month, some of the emojis have just been blank boxes:

If I click the blank box, the coding still appears in my subject box, but once it's posted, it still shows a blank box:

Image

Also, when quoting someone in a reply, their name no longer appears so you have no idea who is being quoted:

This is a picture of past quotes, where names still appear and you know who is being quoted:

The best I can give you is a fake smile and dead eyes.

It’s one thing not to want something; it’s another to be told you can’t have it.

Yes, I've had the same thing. I thought it was my computer. I see :D for the grinning face and :wink: for the winking face. In other posts, it doesn't show who is being quoted.

Now with your post, I'm quoting you. It shows that I'm quoting you in the reply box. Let's see if your name shows up when I hit the submit button.

I see some broken image icons next to the characters that would be typed (for example colon parentheses)

Also, I noticed a couple forums (hot deals and retail stores) say I don't have permissions to view them. Maybe that's on purpose but it's kind of annoying when it shows I have an unread and then won't let me read it...

I was just coming here to report this. I'm glad (maybe?) to know that I am not the only one that is experiencing this issue.

Starting with this issue first....

Can you both view those forums now?

I can view both of those forums now - thanks :). I went through the whole list and Rants&Raves appears to be locked too.

The boxes should be gone now and you should be able to use the smiling emoji's. Let me know if you still have problems.

The boxes are gone and I can see all the emojis now, thanks!

But I still can't see who is being quoted. Makes it hard to know who someone is replying to.

The theme that BFAds is running is not validated for this version of phpBB so it's not going to work, unfortunately until they switch themes.

I had noticed the same restrictions yesterday. Seems ok today. Is anyone going to fix the nonexistent moderators listed for each section and list the ones who actually participate here?

Everything works for me now. Or at least, everything I am aware of.

I am unable to use the Spam button to report, every time I click it I am brought to an error page.
