Thank you for the continued patience and latitude. Rome wasn't built in a day. This is such a complete underneath rewrite of the core code, that we actually expected more problems. There have been no mission critical problems or major glitches.

Known Issues:
Tips:
- I'm getting logged out! If you are having to relogin all the time, go to your profile and increase the number of days that cookies last.

- caching issues! with some browsers (not a bug) - webmasterworld does NOT disable browser caching. It is entirely up to you and your browser to disable caching if you choose.

The caching issue is new because we have eliminated all randoms strings that were previously used in some dynamic urls. Everything is now pure .htm extensions.

(note: I'll update this list, as they are fixed, and found).



Fixes:

Brett - are you just trying to make us all feel bad by only posting to the bug fix thread between 1 and 4 AM? :)

Just kidding - thanks again for all of your hard work. It is appreciated.

One random thing: It's only happened a few times, but after submitting a new post or stickymail message, instead of being sent to the confirmation page I get sent to a blank page (only header & footer, no content), and the message/post won't be sent.

It's like the functional equivalent of the old "required files not available" page I used to sometimes get sent to, except there's not even a cryptic error message now.

Is this a "known issue" or have I just given you a new headache?

I'll keep an eye out for that. It kinda jogs my memory and I think I've seen it before Mivox. Thanks.

I believe I have the time zone bug tracked down. Let me know if it isn't.
You may want to double check your profile and reset your time zone before testing.

Also, I am testing today only with full no cache headers.

Brett,

What exactly is the time zone feature meant to do? All I see is (utc 0)

I've just reset my profile and am seeing the same.

Chris.

Head to your profile options and see the time zone drop down. It adjusts all times on posts to your time zone.
[webmasterworld.com...]

I still need to figure out a system to compensate those that are on day light savings and those on standard time. That's a head scratcher.

"Reset Last Read Pointer" doesn't always 'take' if I click "Forums Index" to leave a Forum too quickly. I really have to let it settle, whereas before I could go to the Forums Index as soon as I saw the page beginning to refresh.

The date for forum 19 is showing Jan 1 2002 for the last post on [webmasterworld.com...] . Me thinks this one is a little more active than that :).
<added>
It's back to the correct date and time.

I am getting the correct time!

I just had to compensate for daylight savings by one hour, which I've always had to anyway, so it's no problem. Not everyplace observes DST, fine like this it's only twice a year.

Sorry Brett, One more issue.

When I click send message to send or reply to a message I get a 404 error message. However, when I click back on my browser and click the button again it works. This happens intermitantly.

I get the same problem as above intermitantly in all sections of my stickymail.

Chris.

Lawman became a senior member with less than 400 posts here. Is it normal?

[webmasterworld.com...] post # 100

Does FOO posts suddenly count?

In sticky mail, when I look at the sent mail folder it's showing only my name as the sender. It really should be showing who it was sent to.

Let me know if that is still the case Chris (I found a couple of issues that _may_ have been the cause of that).

Thanks Mac - didn't know that.

Well coming down to it.

There are two errors know errors left (dillo cookies and post counts).

Any others that can be recreated? Those pesky one time things are what I'm after now...

I am aware of the error Chris, but I've been unable to reproduce it or even know where to start on looking for it.

I got a new one for you. I was trying to post a 15k IP list and got a 404 on postaga.cgi

What is the post size limit anyhow?

I'm trying to track down the source of that rare 404 on posting KM. I know it's there from looking at the error logs (about 10 errors yesterday), but I can't reproduce it and haven't seen it yet myself.

Post size limit is 130k'ish.

Brett, donno if this was mentioned before, but

- if I choose Time Zone Offset +1.00 Brussels, Copenhagen, press submit,
I get -12.00 Eniwetoc, Kwajalein in the box (which is one hour behind to the time here).

- yesterday I still got thrown out of wmw frequently if i closed a message.

<<added>> this only happens when i click on the numbered pages (the 2 e.g. in this thead), just got to get used to that.

for the rest everything seems working fine.

The timezone actually gets stored correctly (and is shown correctly in the text below the dropdown). It's just that this selection is not reflected in the active element of the dropdown itself, so that if you don't pay attention when changing something else on your profile, you're automatically deported to the aleutian islands.

Simply a matter of inserting a "selected" attribute into the right option tag.

And magically, the time zone display should be fixed.

Last call. I think I've got all but the one 'delete message' bug that doesn't update the index or active list to reflect the change.

Any others?

Woohoo! Another nit to pick! ;)

Would it be possible to show the subthread numbers on the "my threads" page as well?
