    The update was delayed. We expect to see the update on the main site late today. If you see any issues, feel free to report them here.

    There should be no noticable impact on the forum. The changes are aimed at the main site and are mostly internal.

    Re: March 2012 Site Update - Feedback and Bugs

    EVERYONE --

    As you can see, we've made the updates to the site. Obviously, it didn't go perfectly because many of you can't log into the forum. We are working on this issue.

    Yes, we know the registration also doesn't work, nor does the password reminder. Things are being updated.... Stay tuned!

    ===

    One of the changes we are making is to disconnect the forum log-in from the main site log-in. That is the reason for some of the "issues" you might be seeing.

    We don't have things perfect yet, but you should be able to cleanly log into the forums again. If you have trouble, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Brad!

    I had troubles all day (and last night).
    Unfortunately, I could NOT inform you about that since anonymous posts are not allowed, and registration (for a temp account) was disabled.
    I still canít log in from the FireFox. Just tried IE and it worked. Strange, isnít it?

    Most issues on forum should be resolved at this point. Again, apologies for trouble through last night and earlier today.


    As to firefox - what error (if any) are you getting. Firefox should be working.

    I'm getting logged off after a short period of inactivity. Is that a new feature? If so I'm not a big fan of it, it's just annoying.
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.

    Same here. Can we go back to the previous version... you know... the one that actually worked? Brad said there should be no noticeable impact on the forum and I don't know what improvements or new features this version has, but so far it's been a big disappointment.

    AFAICT it actually has always been like that, that fact just got concealed by the "remember me" feature being checked on log-in, which silently does a re-login for you. (You could just tell that you've got logged off while reading a long thread or writing a long post by looking at the last visit timestamp in the small "Welcome" box at the top, which jumps to the time when you started that specific activity in that case.)

    So I suppose once the "remember me" feature will be back up and working again, that issue will be gone as well.

    This is a snakeskin jacket! And for me it's a symbol of my individuality, and my belief... in personal freedom.

    The login you reach in the screenshot below does not work correctly. To login you must use the top right fields and not the central ones, where it seems as if the password field not only lack the password char attribute, but also give back always an incorrect result (might it be it is the username duplicated under the hood?)

    Re: March 2012 Site Update - Feedback and Bugs

    The irony is that the changes were primarily on the main site. Very little was changed on the forums! The change on the forum was around logging in. It impacted registering, logging in, and changing password/email addresses. It is actually a change that allows you to now change Password/email without jumping back into the main site. That is petty much the only changes on the forum that I'm aware of. 98% of the changes that just happened were on the main site. The main site now is operating on a completely different CMS.

    I'll continue to work with our developes to see if we can get the issues fixed. Just keep raising the issues until we say "stop"

    Re: March 2012 Site Update - Feedback and Bugs

    These have been sent via Email, but guess best to Officially report it here (Now that my login is working)
    The Articles appear to be fixed now, However there's still a problem with the Article Writers Pages...
    The list of articles are still sorted oldest to newest, and not newest to oldest like everywhere else...
    Also the Pagination is not working correctly..

    This link should be to the last page of your articles (Page 11)
    http://www.codeguru.com/member.php/Bradley+Jones/60
    and according to the pagination list below it's on the last page, however it's somewhere on Page 3.. The next page only shifts up one article at a time...
    EDIT ...

    The Above Issue has bee Fixed .....

    Like Cimperiali, I'm also having to log in using the top-right fields. The fields shown in his screenshot don't work (although to be honest, there's something in the back of my mind that logging in has never worked reliably from that particular dialog).

    However, the "Remember me" checkbox just doesn't work so I'm having to log in manually at each and every visit (which is quite annoying)

    Remember me still doesn't seem to be working

    FYI - I have asked the developers on point for this update to check this thread. As such, they should be getting your comments first-hand. '

    Thanks guys!

    Have to log in every time I close the browser (Firefox). More irritating, I logged in, went to comment on this post, and had to log in again! VBF remembers correctly, btw.
