May 31st 2012 site issues
« on: May 31, 2012, 08:48:11 pm »
Hey everyone. I'm sure many of you have noticed various issues with the site today. I wanted to take a moment to tell you what exactly has happened.
This morning, I decided to install an update to the forum software, in an effort to make Zebra Huddle more secure. These updates can normally run without any interruption to the site whatsoever. Because of this, I don't feel a need to tell you all about scheduled maintenance, since you wouldn't even notice.
However, with today's update, came a lot of problems. ZH uses a lot of modifications in order to have the feature set and spam prevention it currently has. The update eliminated many of those modifications. Some I have been able to run through the simple installer, others I have to manually insert code as necessary.

So that is why you may have seen errors, or a weird layout at various points today. It's definitely why spammers have managed to get on here.
Fixing the issues caused by this update have taken up the majority of my day and I still have a few hours of trying to get everything back to normal. Please bear with me during this time.

Starting tomorrow, if you notice that a feature has still not returned, please let me know.

Thanks,
Major Wood

Just a small thing, but I've noticed when reading posts that, in the sidebar with the poster's name/details, their league affiliation and WFTDA certification are appearing twice, directly underneath each other.

Eg on this post, my Affiliation of 'Sun State Roller Girls' will appear twice, and for certified refs it goes League, Cert, League, Cert.

You do a great job running this site! :)

All reported issues have been fixed.

Other issues I still need to correct:

Bookmarks not functioning
Stats sheet not functioning
URL code not displaying properly

There are other less public issues to be dealt with as well.

Feel free to let me know if you come across something else that isn't working properly. I'll update this list as I get more reports or as each issue gets fixed.

That could be a cookie issue. I've always had my logins last differently on my phone than on a computer. I'll look into it.

Another double-up spotted - just went to edit my profile info in terms of bout numbers etc, and noticed that both in the 'edit profile' area, and in the 'view profile' area, my skating/NSO experience is appearing twice.

Whoops, still noticing random things:

- Stats sheet % does not appear in the sidebar to a thread anymore.
- When I look at my own stats sheet, I can only see changes made since the date of the site issues - not old stats sheet +/- items, where they were posted or why. This may not be a fixable issue, and that's fine, just noting it for the sake of completeness.

Just noticed a thing...

Looking at my profile, the information about bouts worked seems to have been duplicated, so it appears twice.
