I added a new membergroup, Just Registered. At 5 posts, you will upgrade to Newbie. This starter group prevents them from adding signatures and website links until they have 5 posts, which makes profile spam here 100% pointless and we already know what the mods here to do spammers...

Excellent idea. I was going to ask if there was some way you could prevent new members from posting spam link. I know I reported quite a few last night and again this morning. I was going to ask if maybe you had accidently added a spam magnet in the upgrade because there were so many  ;D

I believe I got them under control, as the rate seems to have gone from a flood to a trickle.

Sportsfan I am sure you will like the fix for the advertisement covering the new posts area. Everyone will, as it's super small now - less intrusive, and faster to load.

On to the bad news...

No spell check, and it's not happening. I was unsuccessful at bringing in the necessary changes despite bringing down the server for 5 hours.  The alternative doesn't work, so here it comes... all major browsers but Internet Explorer have spell checking built in.

Google Chrome
Mozilla Firefox
Apple Safari
Opera


That is the order that I prefer them. I haven't used Opera and don't use it to test my sites, although the others are all installed on my machine. Chrome is imperfect but gives a good browsing experience, so if something doesn't work I fall back to Firefox.

Someday in the future I will set up another server from scratch with everything I need, so that I do not have to struggle so much to add minor things. That is not going to happen any time soon so can I offer you a better browser? :P

At that, I conclude my work on this upgrade. I'll of course be watching for issues as they arise but as far as I can tell all of the original features are back with more on top ;)

Great job Carl.  Before you got everything working again, I must have deleted 50 of those little spammers.  Glad that was fixed.  I can only imagine what you have to go through to do an upgrade or install components of a these sites.  It was worth the down time. :)

Not sure if I'm stupid, but....

When I click on 'profile' it asks me if I want to delete my account?

Is this a glitch?

Hey guys I'm taking an extended hiatus... again. I'm out of ideas to build houses and I don't have as much fun designing homes like I used to; it feels more like a chore. So that's where I'll be, I will probably be back sometime. :P

When I go to my profile, the only option it gives me is to delete my account.

Same here - It was fine yesterday but today it does ask if I want to delete my account with no other options, also if I click on "Profile of Jancy" nothing happens, it does not take me to My Profile.

Mine is fine, although I am using a different theme to Jancy, if that info is of any help.

I mean't it might just be a problem with that theme in particular.

I was commenting on the "if that info is of any help" because we can't change our theme now at all even if that is the problem.

I mean't to say that it was directed at Carl if he needed to know that info or something.

Although I have another problem still, I can't upload a House and I've been trying since yesterday and Twinmum has uploaded a lot since then. I just get an error after about 30 seconds or something?

Am liking the new look, it's quite a soothing green, not too garish at all  :)

I hadn't realised that the automatic spell checker (squiggly red lines) that came up was a function of Chrome, I just assumed that it was part of the site and thought that it worked well.  D'oh.

Just hit a small problem, along with - as the others have reported - only being able to delete my profile, I am unable to view another person's profile.  When I click on their name, I get an error message:

An Error Has Occurred!
You are not allowed to access this section

Is it something to do with the permissions, as samoht04 (with the blue boxes/admin), isn't getting the profile error?

Could be that as well, I can see your profile fine. I don't have full Mod permissions though only the stuff needed to run the contests.

I am getting the same error message also that Gheez is getting. It worked fine yesterday, not today.

I visited Gheez's profile. Nope, I'm not authorized to access it.
I tried to view my profile... nope, I can only delete it.

I'm having the same problem. I'm trying to upgrade my profile but it's forcing me to delete my account too.  ???

If I was to take a guess I would say that when Carl made the just registered group the settings with those may be conflicting with the normal, like we are in both groups, just registered and regular, and the permissions are conflicting. Just my guess.

I have no problem viewing my own profile or other members' profiles. The theme I'm using is SMF Default Theme - Curve, in case that makes any difference.

That is really, really close! I just had to go in and make sure that all the post count groups (like senior member) had the ability. Everything should be fine now.

I'm glad none of you took the opportunity to delete! :)
