Desktop Safari.

Dropdowns are fine (now, but I did see them broken on my iPad last night), but I can't click on the red Image unread posts icon anymore. Also, the little red document that used to show up next to unread topic titles now just says "View first unread post".

Oooh, all the post action buttons in the top right corner up there ^ are missing icons too.
The problem with being an introvert online is that no one knows you're just hanging out and listening.

OK, so I upgraded phpBB last night (security update) which also updated some CSS. The issue is actually a local one, where certain old files are cached and certain new ones are already loaded, and they don't get along.

The easiest thing to do is clear your browser cache. If you don't want to do that, go to this page:

styles/prosilver/theme/common.css

Refresh it twice. Then refresh the forum page here. That should reload just that component.

Post here if there are further issues with this.

The problem is that any link to urbanmsp.com automatically redirected to forum.streets.mn, but that went away so now all those links are broken. Seems kind of shortsighted to drop the urbanmsp URL. How much does that domain cost each year?
By the way, noticed this complaint. I agree, and I'm working with Nick to try to get urbanmsp.com back (as a secondary domain). However, I have also done a bulk find/replace in the forum database so that any link that was written to another urbanmsp.com thread is updated to the forum.streets.mn URL. Obviously this only works for links internal to the forum -- if there's a link on another site, I can't fix that.

And sorry, still seeing some issues after cache wipe, so let me look into this a little more...

There are also comments on regular streets.mn that link back to the forums, don't know if it's possible to change those. There may even be blog posts that link back.

There are some other changes I will look at making on the main site. Specifically, I want to get all old images to load over HTTPS to get rid of mixed content errors in the old posts. I could probably fix the old urbanmsp.com links then, too. However, messing with the database on the main site is a much higher bar of approval than Nick's fiefdom here, so I have to coordinate that.

The theme issues are resolved -- however, you may have to clear your browser cache once more. Sorry about that, guys.

Seems recent posts aren't formatting pasted URLs as clickable, though previous URLs are clickable

So imgur img links won't work anymore. I'd post a screenshot, but....

And fuck flickr, it is the worst platform ever.

It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct.

How are you embedding the image? Using the [ img ] tag with an imgur URL, it worked fine for me.

so I found at least link to urbanmsp on the forum you missed, not sure how it's different from what you searched in the DB.
This post has a dead internal link: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=407&start=220#p21061

Seems I missed the ones starting with "www". Prior to the domain change, both urbanmsp.com and www.urbanmsp.com were valid URLs for the forum. Did another find/replace, and caught that. Thanks

Urbanmsp.com is always a valid domain name in my book.

Looks like the busted web links is only happening in Tapatalk (where I spend most of my forum time).

Like, you submit with Tapatalk and it isn't clickable in web view? Or you just can't click from Tapatalk? Can you provide an example?

(This new version does some weird thing to simplify display of internal links. Not sure if that's it)

No links, no matter which post, are clickable anymore in Tapatalk unless specifically switched into web view. Until recently web view was not needed to tap on links, no link is accessible unless switched into web view.

Anyone else notice that quoting is broken? It no longer lists the author. Some new fields get added to the quote specifier but deleting those doesn't help.
