Hello everybody

hooray, we've had new technical issues :P

Since the last update, I could not post anymore. I investigated the problem, found out it concerned all message fields. I switched to about 4 browsers, it didn't go away ... I figured that it must be the editor, so I now disabled all customizations for the editor ... and it seems to work again now, at least for me.

I don't know if anybody else experienced the same problem. Let me know. Also, feel free to let me know any stuff that's still broken ... I'll do my best to get back to you :)

cheers RTP

  • RTP changed the title to NEW technical problems ... solved?

Yeah I definitely noticed this, I was still logged in on my laptop, but unable post or reply among other things. When logged out on my phone, I was unable to login again since the formating of the site had changed and the login window was no longer accessible/visible lol. By checking the activity window of the forum I got the impression, that this was the case for everyone else as well.  Since there wasn't any new posts during these days with the issue.

Among the things I fiddled around with in the user control panel during this "down time", to test out what worked or not, changing avatars and profile pictures was also rendered impossible due to the different size in the php formatting of the relevant forms/cells.

You sure there wasn't some 0-day exploit some hacker used? It seems a little too coincidental, all details concidered. They usually scan the web for forums with unpatched vulnerabilities, sometimes with bots/crawlers.

I checked with Mars and it was no exploit :D ... it were indeed technical problems, caused by an update -- the very thing that should protect us from exploits...

Not gonna bore you with the details. I am super glad that we got this back to a working state.

Great glad to hear that. 😎👍 Keep us safe and updated, so no evil hax0rs can spam us with their malicious viagra ads lol. btw I just noticed that the emoji sub-menu now displays all the apple emojis for me now. Is that a new custom plugin as well for the forum?

I am afraid I don't know that :)

On my side it displays all the old emojis like before.

I could imagine that they do some trickery with apple now though.
