  • Don't think I have missed any reference to this, so I'll throw it out there.
    When I click on a site sponsor link at the bottom of the Forum Home page under the heading "Please support our Site Sponsors", it just returns me to the home page again. Main browser is Chrome, but have also tried Edge and Firefox.
    Cheers

      Weird. On mouse-over it shows the URL that "should" open up but it doesn't.
      Should be an easy fix...

      Fixed now
      Was obvious when I looked at the code with fresh eyes. Couldn't see it for staring previously.

      PHP has a default limit of 2mb but I've now made the upload size larger but a little wary of the data impact so it's not infinite.

      Mal's solution of only uploading the English part of the manual is a great solution to the size limit too.

  • Site was off-line for 30 minutes tonight while I installed some patches and bug fixes. Sorry if you noticed.

    We are now on the latest version which won't have many/any noticeable changes but might have disappeared some bugs that we haven't found yet.
    (not including the Flag/report bug above...yet)

    • How do you Edit a post after it has been submitted ? I cannot seem to find a way to do this, I am sure it is sitting right in front of me !

        Of course the minute I post I can see it so guessing there is a time out period

        Yep, the site has always worked like that, else the threads become unreadable when someone changes the post after many have replied.

      On the website or on Tapatalk? There is a button on the website at the bottom or top of your post. On tapatalk, you click on your post and there’s an edit option in the pop up window. I’m on IOS, it’s part of the built-in architecture options.

      • Don't seem to be able to delete a comment I just made on a post. Am I just blind and can't see the icon?

          FYI saeco_user you didn't post a Comment on a Post, you commented on a Post in a Post. i.e. You posted a Post, not a Comment. A Post that I deleted for you.

          The next time you want to delete a Post or Comment try clicking on 'Edit', then click 'Delete' and choose your options.

          Just to surmise:
          You can't delete a comment on a post but you can delete a post as long as it hasn't been commented on. Who's on first? No Who's on second, What's on first.

          Little surprise, I agree with Tester...
          You can't delete a comment after Posting it.
          Just means you should check first and don't say anything you'll regret!
          Not a bug, just the odd way that comments work and are nearly like a reply but not quite.

      • Hi Andy

        I have found there is noway to block users from messaging you like most forums have.

        Would have been something i would have just used, seems like an important safety/privacy option that is missing?

          I don't agree it has anything to do with safety/privacy but it could be annoying.

          Not something I've ever needed (as I can delete user accounts)

          You can turn-off "Enable Private Messaging" in Profile/user setting/Account but that means on one can message.

          According to the developer re this version of the forum software:
          "It was a logistical and performance nightmare that prevented tracking down permission problems. Due to this the feature was removed."

          Please use the "contact us" below to report someone who is doing something wrong!

          You could also try adding them to the Profile/user setting/Account/Ignore List.
          I think that might block their posts and their PM's though.

          Dobbing them in is best though, we can warn them and if it becomes a habit, remove them.

      • This weekend saw some email shuffles to reduce the insane volume of spam we get.

        It appears that we might have had a day of email not leave the web site from 13th June 7pm till 14the June 7pm so if you sent a quote request or contact us and didn't get a reply please try again. We weren't ignoring you, just never received it!

        Same would be true for thread subscriptions and PM notifications
        ...just all falling into a black bucket somewhere never to be seen.

        BeanBay was still sending invoices and messages, 'twas just the forum that was having grief.

        Everything tests okay now though.

        • Morning all.

          As of a Sun 12/07/2020 4:39 AM (the last post advice I received) I am no longer receiving email notification of replies to subscribed threads.

          My junk mail folder is empty and Coffeesnobs has not been added to the blocked senders list.

          User settings/notifications seems to have the correct boxes checked, any thoughts?🙂

          • Anyone, or am I the only one who new reply emails useful?🙂

              I've been getting other notifications but I don't subscribe to any threads so don't receive notifications for these.

          • I can't help you out mate as I just don't use the facility, other than notifications for PMs, BeanBay, Admin etc which all work Ok for me...

            • I'm not subscribed to threads so can't advise about receiving notifications. I do receive a notification if I get a mention in a thread I've posted in. Have you tried unchecking and the selecting the subscribe button again?

              • Yelta weren't you with Bigpond who had a server block on CS? Maybe that again. If you have a non Bigpond email maybe try changing to that for a day?

                  Thanks 338, jogged the memory, went into Bigpond Webmail and found over 20 advice emails from CS sitting in the junk mail folder.

                  Have made some changes to settings and moved the messages from the junk folder to the in box, all have now shown up in my in box.

                  Thanks to all who have replied.🙂

                    I really like fixes that I don't have to fix!

                    Spam filters are a necessary pain, worse when the end user doesn't get a digest of what the ISP stuffed into a folder somewhere without telling them.
                    Bigpuddle and hotmail are the worst two offenders but outlook is catching up.

                    You should have a "whitelist" option somewhere in their web interface to allow email from coffeesnobs.com.au

                  My thoughts as well, I'm looking, they seem to have hidden it pretty well.😏
