Difficult Upgrade
« on: December 13, 2006, 10:07:59 PM »
Hey gang:

Sorry for the long downtime today.  Just attempted a difficult upgrade to our forums software.  I think I've got everthing working except the ignore feature, and the membership star ratings are showing again -- both of which I'll try fixing tomorrow.

Please report any new bugs you find, using this thread.

I need to collapse now.

Ademas -- you'll need to send me an email to editors@aidsmeds.com to let me know what your real email address is (please include your username).  Changing your email address to a fake address will automatically change your password (which you won't receive because of the fake email).  This will lock you out of the forums.

For those of you who have your email hidden in your profile, it will show up when YOU look at it - and it should be in italics. If it's not in italics and you want it hidden, just click on your "account related settings" link in your profile and change it.

Peter, would now be a good time to try out that bio code?

Peter -

My apologies for jumping the gun regarding viewable email addy's; my bad.  I typically don't react so hastily. I panicked last night shortly after the forums came alive, and concluded [wrongly], that my email address was 'out there' for all the world to see (I should have known this was not the case). 

I wrongly assumed, when viewing my own profile (which I rarely, if ever, do), that my own email address would report through as 'hidden.'

Again - sorry for adding to the woes of your [already] L-O-N-G day, yesterday.  I'll better familiarize myself with  the various features and workings of the site before reacting so hastily in the future. 

Regards,
Chris

I need to determine if this is a wide-spread problem.

The problem seems to be unique to Firefox. I am using IE now and spell check is working perfectly. With Firefox the spell check window pops up with whatever you type duplicated and highlighted as if it were one word. It would not check individual words for spelling errors. Maybe the problem is specific to a particular version, mine is -

Good morning Peter,

I am using a MAC computer with either Firefox v.2.0 and/or Safari v.2.0.4. and in both cases spell check does not work.

Firefox duplicate and highlight everything I type, and Safari does nothing at all.

Hope that helps.

Did spellcheck work with Firefox and/or Safari before I upgraded the software on Wednesday?

Kevin -- you say your Firefox works with spellcheck.  Which version do you have?

There's a thread at the SMF forums (SMF is the software we use for these forums) with others reporting the same issue with the new upgrade version.  It's at http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=134108.0.

Hey Peter -

I am using Firefox 1.5.0.8 - also I just gave it another try to make sure I wasn't dreaming when I said it was working the other day - and it worked great.

Used this sentence: Ths is a tst of the spel cheaker

And it found all errors.

Good luck on solving this puzzle...damn software :)
