General thread to post forum problems

  • on: February 11, 2011, 05:36:42 PM

I noticed some people still have some issues with the forum and the website. The domain has been moved to a new server, which means all your old cookies and cache can cause problems accessing it. Most certainly when you are a regular member. If you can´t access the site or the forum on your laptop-computer, it means you need to delete the cookies and empty your cache. You can also access the site through the IP addres, simply type in 207.58.133.244 in your web browser and you will be directed to the website. It will probably also fix your cookie issues.

The registration function is back up, there was an error in the files which I fixed, so the captcha image shows up again. Unfortunately it also makes it possible for spammers to register again, I already deleted two of them, but there is also an option to let people answer a question to be able to register. Because not everyone on here is a true MJ savvy, I think a question about him could be a problem for some. Suggestions for questions are appreciated, I think that will keep the spammers away. **Edit: this function doesn't work properly, so forget about the questions.**

Some people have a problem with BBcodes and post approvals. People are posting that in different threads, which makes it hard for me to keep up with the problems, so therefore this thread. Every error you get or function you miss, please post them in this thread, so I can see if I can fix it for you.

Again about the passwords, because some people didn´t understand it. Everyone should have been asked by the board to choose a new password. If the board didn´t ask it, ask for a new password yourself, because it is necessary, otherwise you might encounter some forum problems. Your new password MUST contain both upper and lower cases, otherwise you will be told it´s not according requirements. I have set the quantity of maximum log in attempts to endless, so you won´t be kicked out after 3 failed attempts. 30 days after you changed it, you will be asked again to change it. Again you must use both upper and lower cases.

So if you need any help, simply post your problems in here or e-mail me at <!-- e -->souza@michaeljacksonhoaxforum.com<!-- e --> because I am now answering on Twitter, Facebook, forum threads and e-mail and it's a bit hard to get a good overview that way.

Souza,

I just logged in with my temporary PW that you sent me .
Last night I attempted to change it...wouldn't let me.
Just now I logged in with it and the board did not ask me to change my PW.
SOooOOoo...how do I go about that...when you say ask...does that mean contact you? color me confused.

Thanks

I cant upload an avatar....possible attack vendor etc message, or too big.

I know I can resize my picture, but how do I fix the possible attack vendor message if my picture files are just in JPEG OR PNG ???

Also, does anyone know how to add a GIF signature???

Please please, and thanks in advance.  God Bless xoxoxo

Go to the pic you want to upload in your computer...ddl click the name of desired pic...image or whatever.
Then it should be highlighted and you should be able change the name of it.

The PNG thing does not work verra well
 I've had a probelm with that one on another board so try Gif i
f you have tried jpeg already.
I can't recall off the top of my head the different names for images ..
just GIF came to mind.

The vector error sounds like a firewall issue....or maybe the AV but I think firewall.

If your posts need approval, go to the user control panel and change your password, that worked for most people. I am not sure where that bug comes from.

As for the avatar issue, if you can't upload your avatar, email me your picture and I will fix the image for you.

Followed the steps nd advice. All ok now.
I noticed just the speed is not the same, it is slower. At times a post won´t go through, but  keep sending untill it catches.

Thanks!

I have been doing some stuff in the admin panel, so that could be why it was slow. If it stays that way, let me know. The website is moved to a fast, dedicated server with plenty of space, so that shouldn't be the problem.

When you log out you see a demo, that's not the MJDHI chat you see.
