When I enter the forum, I am not signed in according to the top welcome message. When I sign in, I get a message that says I am already signed in.  All is fine and well after this unless I close my browser.

yeah - I should have some time this weekend to have a go at it all.

Just got a kindle fire hd with shattered screen to try and fix.

Although after 3 hours yesterday and the screen I removed does not look like the replacement part I bought.
Plus lots more broke than first looked like.

But other than that don't think I've got anything urgent this weekend.  So should be able to spend a few hours 'playing' with the forum and seeing if anyone on the yabb forum has ideas.

I'm hoping after I've amalgamated everythig into the old folders that things ought to play nice.

But can't see how that applies to my own getting two different layouts from the same url noidea

I've noticed that some people are "senior members" while others are still being labeled with that Latin system (funditor, etc.). I was just curious what the differentiation was.

Missing Photos making Tutorials Useless
Reply #52 - Jul 1st, 2013 at 12:03am
 
Hello all,
I've been trying to make a Shepherd Sling (It throws real shepherds!) for a class project, however, there are no photos to go along with the tutorials for the two shepherd slings posted by Lakeslinger.
This makes the project just about impossible.
Can this be fixed, or were they killed off permanently by the update?

any thread that currently says: 'attachment deleted' is lying.

Attachments are still there. But for some reason the forum is currently denying the existence of the attachment folder for some users.

Some users can see the pics and attachments - some can't.
noidea

I'll get it fixed eventually.

Just downloaded the cap paul template direct from the server - so  can categorically state that we haven't lost any files, pics or attachments.
For some reason the forum software is claiming the attachments folder is either not there or has wrong permissions.

As far as I can tell both are incorrect: ie it's both there and has all the correct permissions - so it's probably the bloody paths file again.
Just got to copy the backed up forum to my workshop pc and I'll try and fix it.

Also the variances between older and newer user accounts does seem to be independant of web browsers.
which makes even less sense.
On the bright side, I'm almost pathologically stubborn, so I can guarentee that at some point everything will be working properly. Just bear with me folks - this stuff is fiddly and whether something work or not can depend on some pretty obscure and tiny detail in an obscure file.
User friendly it's not.

To be honest it's worked better and sooner than I thought it would Smiley

And in case anyone hasn't worked it out yet - crashtestdummy=curious_aardvark
we is one and the same Smiley

I'm still having the problem of the forum telling me that I'm a guest and then telling me that I'm already logged on. Now I see the regular, brown forum template no matter of I'm logged in or not. So that's a plus. Smiley

If a picture was posted prior to the second update, it's gone.  If it was posted after the second, it may be there or it may have to be opened, down at the bottom of the message.

any file attachments that have ever been uploaded to the forum should be there. All file attachments that have ever been uploaded to the forum are in the attachments folder. 

the pictures that don't currently display or show a link(on my computers anyway) are the ones that link to photo server websites - but I've always had issues with american based photo server links anyway.

I'll leave it a few days and see if any of this sorts itself out.

And then I'll see if the yabb guys have any more ideas Smiley
