Bugs in the forum caused by forum going down on Saturday.
« on: June 19, 2011, 05:44:00 AM »
After Reives.... did whatever he needed to do yesterday (I think something about moving domain name) and the forum went down, there have been few bugs in the forum.

If I go to the Portal, a white screen will appear with this text:
Wrong $forum_dir value. Please make sure that the $forum_value variable points to your forum's directory.

It completely messed up my avatar so I had to get a another avatar temporarily (I will find a new one soon).
(Oh, when I tired to upload the same avatar, it didn't work)
I notice that it happened to many other people too, like Raxus, Fragezeichen, Mepwnn, Reives, Lance, Sizzle, etc. o.o

I am not sure if there is anything else problematic, but this is what I have found this far.

Edit: And after exploring around more to find bugs, I found that when you click on the "Where is Waldo: Quintessence edition", the picture won't open, instead it will show you this: http://freebirdgames.com/images/WhereIsQ-tbv.png
(The picture is in the Freebird's actual page under Quintessence)
Oh and the link under the Waldo picture that is suppose to take you to the top of the page doesn't work.

I have the same problem with the portal and my avatar. I've been meaning to change my avatar, though :P

EDIT: Also, I can't see the images for the media section on the bottom of the page.

EDIT2: I tried to change my avatar (back to the one I had originally, not the one I've had for awhile) and it gave me this error: The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved.

EDIT3!: I can still put in an avatar by uploading it on a different website.

EDIT: Okay I noticed that Portal is out of function with this error messege: Wrong $forum_dir value. Please make sure that the $forum_value variable points to your forum's directory.

On it! Thanks for the reports folks.

Also, I heard that Ronnie has been still having the main forum format glitch; is this happening to anyone else? i.e. the main forum board page is super distorted?

The forum main board glitch for Ronnie should now be fixed.

P.S. @Ronnie: are you using the older Freebird theme by choice? It's pretty nifty and I think I'm gonna switch my own theme back to it for a while for fun, but just wondering.

Media gallery is now fully functional again, as well as the Where's Waldo/Quintessence image. c:

Let me know if anyone discovers anything else!

Swept whole forum with Chrome, Firefox and Opera and everything went good. No troubles.

It's still weird for me D: (screenshot attached) Why am I seeing replied blurred together? I can't tell which is which unless I post (the posting is fine). And there isn't supposed to be 2 columns of user names at posts. D:

That screenshot can't be right. ._o Saving it as a jpg might fix it. And also -- did you intend to use the older forum theme? If not or that you're not sure what I'm referring to, then I'll just switch ya to the new theme and it should be okay. c:
