Message Board Fixes - Updates

Hi, everyone!

First, I want to say THANK YOU for all of your posts -- some issues we know about and are already working on; but you also brought some new bugs to our attention too. It's a big help to us to see these, and it helps me prioritize what needs to happen immediately, and what can come after that.

After we went live yesterday, thanks to you, the Community Leaders, and the Moderators, I was able to give a long list (Wink) of To-Dos to the tech team.

I'll use this thread to start reporting what our tech team is working on. I'll post a follow-up as things get fixed. 

Right now, this is what is being worked on:

1. Fixing Log In in IE

2. Re-importing missing user accounts (those "Visitor (Not Verified)" accounts), which is also related to the Error pages we get when we click on a thread.(What happens is this: when we click on a thread, the system needs to load all the info about that thread – the content, the settings, and the users attached to it. As the system searches frantically for the all the users participating in that thread, when it hits a missing user account, the page load fails.)

3. Re-importing missing message boards: All of the June 2012 Playgroup; boards in the Current Debates, After School Activities, 2008 Playgroup Friends, 2009 Playgroup friends, and Wedding & Honeymoon Planning topics; and the Nurtured Heart Approach board in the Spirited & High Needs topic. I can't thank our members in these boards enough for your patience!

Additionally, you should start seeing some Avatars reappearing, as well as some Signatures.

Also, you'll notice that header copy is missing from the boards -- that will be reloaded in the next 24-36 hours.

As for the rest of the list, I'm sitting down with the project manager this afternoon to prioritize the next tasks for the team. I'll make features that are not working or missing the highest priority. 

I'll talk to you soon!

...keep going!

Hi again CD Jessica:

I'm sorry to report but when I post these lin ks on my board they do not connect .... 

 I've been posting many updates of what the tech team is working on: Message Boards Fixes - Update and Message Board Update - 10/19/12. Also, I've started some threads on individual issues, as many members can't see replies. They are: Missing Message Boards, Error Pages/Visitor Not Verified, The Mobile Site-Fixes, IE Login, Replying and Viewing Replies-Fixes, and URL's Not Working? Read This. They're all here in this Help board, a great resource for information!

Hello,

What is with the quote feature that has html code in it & makes it hard to read?
Is that set to be fixed?

When will *subscribe* actually work?
Hence when will email notifications be working again?

Seems centering of certain things like graphics doesn't work?

When replying ..it appears to be either to one self or just the person that started the thread?
Is there a fix for this?

Thanks.

I am using Google Chrome. I was told the boards are working with all browsers. I still can't see any replies to any post I see anywhere. Yes, I cleared cache, cookies, etc. I'm highly upset that after all this I still can't use the boards. Don't bother replying to me because I won't be able to see it. I was directed here by an iV cm. For what it's worth (nothing), I have posted.

Sorry, Jammin. :( Well, I'm replying anyway, so that once we get Replies visible again, you can see my "sorry."

The good news is that it's now the #1 priority for the tech team. Thanks for toughing it out with us!

...keep going!

Editing to say.......  it must have something to do with the "regular reply" opposed to the "quick reply"... it showed up here I hope you can see it now....  ;O)

Thank you for those other links, I'll post them on  my  boards...

Good luck with all the flukes,, your days will be long and tiring (())

Also when the reply, as opposed to quick reply, is used within the body of the text it shows stuff like: . <br /><br /> all throughout the text .... what is that? I'm thinking it's the code for spacing but why is it there ?

Eeek! I see it! Whoa.

Well, I'm stumped. ;) Let me give this back to the guys. Great example.

...keep going!

Hi Momto2xys,

As I mentioned in my original announcement to the community, the new platform we're on doesn't support a number of features that we had with Lithium. Marking threads or posts as "new" or "read" is one of those features that we'll have to build back in, now that we're live. I do already have project tickets created for these, though! Unfortunately, I don't have an ETA on that. Right now, the team is focused on the items that I've outlined in my Message Board Update - 10/19/12 thread (which also explains what's going on with signatures).

I know we have a lot of fixes to tackle, but thanks for your patience! We're all working late around here these days, I promise! LOL ;)

...keep going!
