      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Official Bug Thread for new board

Recommended Posts

OK, so the board migration went fairly well. I know of a few things that didn't come over at all, namely private messages sent to or from scot'teryx didn't get imported because the ' in his user name [censored] up my pm import script, damned cougars.

 

Anyhow, a few tips that might fix some problems:

 

Logging In Issues

if you had a public and a private username on the last board, eg I was privately registered as tim but my public name is gapertimmy, try logging in with your old public name, and your old private name if you are having issues getting on.

 

Old ubb code

The old bb code still works here, but old image tags

[image ] [/ image] won't show up properly, but will work on future posts. Sorry about that, but its just one of those things!

 

Posting Issues/Firewalls

There is some built in features to the board to prevent spam bots from posting batches of messages. Trask and I discovered this was preventing users with personal firewall software from posting new threads. This has since been fixed.

 

I'll add on more common mishaps as they become present.

 

If you can't post a bug on this thread cuz you can't log in, please email me at ... and be patient for my reply.

 

Thanks.

Tim

Here's another bit of info for those having a hard time logging in: the new software doesn't recognize spaces in your login name. Mine used to be Off White but now has to be Off_White.

WORD, thanks for that Off White (thats with a _) special charachters don't go well with the software, thus the spaces in names are now replaced by "_"

another note, you have to LOGIN to post or reply to messages. the board has new cookies, so your old auto login won't work. though when you login the first time, you can set your cookie to REMEMBER ME, so you don't have to do it everytime.

 

for those of you that have multiple avatars, these cookies can become a hassle on this new software. but i guess thats a good thing.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I like the new software. The star rating system blows though. I think it's distracting in the avatar box, and doesn't make sense anyway. I'd lose the stars, but then what do I know. Great job guys!

Looks good! One slight glitch that I've had in the past, that continues with the new board, is that since I installed ZoneAlarm, I get no movement (graemlins, alpine kitty, etc.). I miss seeing the movement. Anybody got an idea how to fix this?

I get text running off the right side of the screen, farther than the R/L scrollbar lets me scroll.

It appears that the "Today's topics" and "Last 48 hours" pages display each

message individually, rather than showing each topic just once. Is that correct or am I missing something?

Anyway, if that is the case, I'd like to complain. I find that interface unusable for somebody who wants

to catch up on recent TOPICS, not individual MESSAGES. I don't want to scan through pages and pages

of messages to find interesting topics.

We're currently in the process of making a recent topics or today's active topics page like the old board had. Sorry to rock your bbs experience!
