FPN is looking all wonky for me. It looks normal when I am logged out, but when I log in, it is in some sort of different view or skin or something. I can't figure out how to reset it.

That should be fixed now, I've reset the skin you selected I think, to the current one. The IP.Board pre 3.2 skin was available in the Theme selection menu as a remnant of the upgrade, but it doesn't work with  the current version of the board software - I have disabled it completely now, so that can't happen again ;).

 

Also, please do clear browser cache and temp files as mentioned above. It is an absolute must.

 

HTH, warm regards, Wim

 

 

Thank you.

FPN team,

 

Thanks much.  I have an idea of what sort of work level you folks went through - not fun, not easy, high stress (for me, I hate having to work where I have to check every foothold, and carefully consider each move)... 

 

I do appreciate it, and hope the donate button is supplying enough revenue to cover this.  This is real work, and "clean the septic fields" work. 

 

Thanks much,

Mike

Well done, all. I'm in the computer biz, and have a sense of how much work this required.


Don't take any job that requires new clothes.

Unintentional repeat post. Board s/w not smoothed out yet, apparently, but so what? FPN is back.

Do we really need Java? I have no Java on one of my machines, used to work well with FPN.

Java and javascript are not the same thing.  You don't need to install Java to access Fountain Pen Network.

 

Many thanks to all those who put in so much hard work to keep this place up and running.

Just clicked on Paper and Pen Paraphernalia and was redirected...again.
Running Safari on iPad and had cleared cookies and data and history whilst FPN was offline.
I was not logged in when this happened.

You must flush your DNS cache too, as that still can redirect you. The cache is there to bypass the DNS server (and save time) on a next visit to a site. But if an address has changed, or you have a redirect, that stil will be in the cache so you have to flush that too, as Wim explained elsewhere.

I notice that the previous problem of thread notification emails failing to show up has returned....using google mail at that. Anyone else?

I understand some resource-heavy features were temporarily disabled because of the slow reaction of the board.

This might be one of them.

I still got redirected when I clicked on "Sign In". I am using Google Chrome on iPad 2 and have cleared the Cache and Cookies and Site Data. Where do I clear the DNS? I have also cleared the Cookies and Cache on Safari and on Puffin which I also use and which were also afflicted.

It has certainly been a tough few days and I would like

to commend all of the members of the FPN board that

helped resolve the issues and bring the board back.

Bravo!
