Update on Status

Recommended Posts

A quick update on the FPN Software update.

 

1. After 8 hours, about 1/4 of the PMs have been ported to the new format. Some are failing to port and we will look at that later. First priority is to get the bulk of the PMs online.

 

2. After the PM upgrade is complete, we'll start on the updates to the actual posts. There are more than a million of those so that will take some time as well. Luckily it is a simpler fix than the PM port.

 

3. The skin -- the look and feel -- will be quite a bit more complicated. The software provider has completely switched the system used to create and maintain skins. Since the board is functional with the current skin, this is a low priority issue compared to the PM and post fixes along with tracking down any bugs.

 

4. As time permits, the emoticons will be restored.

 

Please do let us know if you find an error or that something is missing.

I cleared out my cookies and now see no avatars, no signatures, nothing. I was actually hoping this would enable my signature to showup again, which it hadn't been doing in the last day or so....or maybe help there be highlighting of the last reply I pulled up in a topic.

 

Very confusing. Aren't we supposed to clear cookies every so often?

Has anyone noticed that the signatures are that of the OP, and not the individual member who adds a reply?

 

That has been reported a couple of times; deleting FPN-related cookies from your browser should correct the problem.

 

Thanks, Chthulhu!

In the past couple of days I'm not able to see the lists of posts - I just have to run down through each full post to get to the bottom of the first page, then I have some idea how many pages there are. But no scanning the listings of posts to see which ones I might want to review. This has occurred for about two days.

Sorry, if this has already been addressed, but something odd just happened in my messages section. I've had a short back and forth message situation going on today. However, when I opened the latest reply, it won't allow me to reply again, the button is grayed out and not working now.

 

Also, what does the red 'X' mean in the left side of my message conversations list page?

Can that be fixed?

 

Thanks,

I've had that problem too and reported it earlier in this thread. I haven't heard about it from anyone else until you mentioned it now.

My guess is that's a direct indicator of which messages to which you're not allowed to reply. It is for me and mine.

 

Anyone else experiencing this or know why it's happening?

I just went and looked at mine and I see that there are some messages to which I should be able to reply but to which I cannot at the moment. My guess is that there is still back-end work going on and that this is a temporary phenomenon.

I came here for the pictures and stayed for the conversation.

That red X means that the other party in the "conversation" has deleted the thing at the other end. You can read it or delete it from your end, but that's all. :-/

AS in any new venture or new business you are bound to hit a few snags/ snafu's

 

By the by , this Network is to be commended for all their hard work

 

I am still learning my way around, but I do like the new system.

Keep up the good work.

Are you really sure that it's the other party, given my conversation, I don't see why the other party would have done that in this case....seems more like a bug to me...

I discovered a rather annoying issue with the "edit" function. Besides the issue of the absence of a "full editor," the HTML drop down menu does not work when editing a post. If you don't enable HTML in the original post you are just **** out of luck.

Reasonably sure, yes; I haven't deleted any conversations since the change, yet the red X appears from time to time. When I hover my mouse pointer over one, the Alt text indicates that the message was deleted, so it pretty much has to be the person at the other end who deleted it.

 

But yes: It could be a bug.

I've been good, I read through the whole thread before making this comment.

 

I am one of those members who regularly browses the FPN by using 'View New Comment'.

 

In the previous incarnation of the FPN, you could change the length of time that the system regarded was 'New Content'. There was a link on the bottom right hand of the window that you could set to 24 Hours or longer. This was useful if you were looking for a recent post but couldn't remember what forum it was in.

 

This facility has disappeared. As well, the new system seems to be particularly aggressive in clearing out 'New Posts'.

 

Just my tuppence-worth...

Not quite the same, but if you look toward the bottom of the site's front page, just above the list of active users, you'll see a link titled "Today's active content." Clicking that will give you the last 24 hours worth by default. At the bottom left of *that* page is a selector for several options up to the last year. Someone else pointed this out to me a few days ago.

Thank you. That is what I was looking for. It had just moved pages...

I'm still having a problem with having all the replies print out in their entirety when I bring up a topic, meaning there's no way to skim. I don't know how to keep that from happening, it's a real pain, especially when there are numerous pages of replies....any help would be greatly appreciated!

Do you mean that you are not automatically taken to the last reply to a topic?

If that's the case, it sounds like yet another cookie issue. Sallywally, make sure you have cookies enabled in your Web browser, then delete all existing cookies that point to fountainpennetwork.com

 

Restart your browser, and it should work properly after that.
