404 page:

Win 7 Pro SP1Firefox 17.0.1Will have to see if the site now works as intended with newer versions of FF...Hey, Nick. It appears the FF incompatiblities are gone. At least, it doesn't behave any differently now for me in FF or Pale Moon than in IE. What's broken in one is consistently broken in the others. CS
FiltersP3Needs to be bugged - nice catch there Charlie :-)7/16/2013CharlieSpencer_PalmettoSorting Discussions by 'Updated' ignores year, AM / PM 8 Enterprise 64-bitPale Moon 20.2.1 x64Sorting Discussion by 'Updated (newest to oldest) has today's updates in sequence but then jumps to July 2012 and goes backwards from there. It also appears unable to differentiate between AM and PM; 4:00 AM is 'newer' than 2:00 PM.
CommentingTECHREP-2304P1Replies in Discussions/Question threads keep disappearing/reappearingCommited fix - known bug - just not in known bug tab7/16/2013CharlieSpencer_PalmettoSite does not update 8 Enterprise 64-bitPale Moon 20.2.1 x64, IE 10When I load the page in IE, I see the original post and one comment from Who Am I Really. When I load it in PM, I see the original post, Who Am I Really's post, and one of mine. If I reload the PM page, my comment disappears. It doesn't matter which browser I use to add the comment, but it goes away after refreshing. The 'Discussions' home page says I entered the 'Latest Response', but it doesn't appear.Thanks for the extra detail that helps - TC

Previously reported (repated to disappearing comments)7/17/2013CharlieSpencerPages claim multiple comments, but only two are displayed , 8 Enterprise 64-bitPale Moon 20.2.1, IE 10The first page claims 4 comments, both on the page and on the Discussions home. The second claims 7, but both show only two. Problem appears confined to discussions started since site overhaul; older discussions display with all replies.
Action links/PermissionsTECHREP-2335P1Members can see "EDIT" for ALL comments not just ownFixed7/17/2013CharlieSpencerEdit' link displayed for comments posted by other membersAll discussionsWin 8 Enterprise 64-bitPale Moon 20.2.1, IE 10Comments entered by other members have an 'Edit' link in the bottom right, not just comments entered by the active member. Fortunately, the link does not appear to work and returns a 404.
ProfilesTECHREP-2337P1Public profiles displaying member first/last name instead of usernameFixed ----- No, it's not.7/18/2013CharlieSpencerMember profiles display full names, not just member's chosen name ----- No, not fixed; now they're just broken differently. Hovering over an avatar still discloses the member's first and last names. In at least three cases, a member's e-mail address is being displayed instead of his nickname; see the URL 8 Enterprise 64-bitPale Moon 20.2.1
Profiles7/17/2013CharlieSpencerMember profiles' 'View All' (Contacts) displays '0 Contacts'Member profilesWin 8 Enterprise 64-bitPale Moon 20.2.1, IE 10At the bottom of a member's profiles is a list of the first half-dozen contacts and a 'View All' link. Clicking 'View All' returns a page that says '0 Contacts', regardless of how many the member has.
Profiles7/17/2013CharlieSpencerMember profiles 'Recent Activity' and 'View All' (Recent Activity) displays only Discussions started by member, not all comments posted to Discussions started by others.Member profilesWin 8 Enterprise 64-bitPale Moon 20.2.1, IE 10Is this by design? If so, it's a change from the past.This is a bug
Personal Profile7/17/2013CharlieSpencerMember's own profile offers 'Follow' and 'Ignore' buttonsMember profilesWin 8 Enterprise 64-bitPale Moon 20.2.1, IE 10Strange, I can't follow myself. Of course, no one else wants to either...HAHAHAHAHA - Be like a dog trying to catch his own tail. I'll bug the follow/ignore for personal profile, the other issue is a known bug.I tested this on a few accounts, and don't see the follow/ignore in private profiles, (possible hic-up they are working on profiles) - Palmie can you send me a screenshot or link to one? - TCMaybe at some point when I can get a profile to load in less than a minute. CSAww... I read your profile, nothing interesting there HAHAHAHA :-D - TC
7/17/2013CharlieSpencerMember profiles are just ate slam the heck upMember profiles, 8 Enterprise 64-bitPale Moon 20.2.1, IE 10Previously entered 'Interests' and 'Current Technologies' are gone. 'View Full Bio' link just reloads member's Profile home. Abbreviated bio on home ignores previously functional HTML tags. 'Private Message a Contact' successfully loads 'Membership' page, but the 'Please select a contact' selection box has no Contact member names. Imported Member Biography now truncated around 300 characters; rest of previous biography content lost? Updating Preferences returns a 404; when eventually successful, changes aren't saved.Full bio is previously bugged (and no its not lost, just pulling in wrong data table - its pulling in editors bio data table and not profile user table), View full bio is only suppose to display to editors (it goes to their editor bio) this is bugged, HTML is bugged (though we are going to BBcodes only), Will bug the PM contact issue, update preferences 404 previously bugged

7/17/2013gsgAbove the comments and below the captcha two links are running together, it looks like "Commenting ?????" and "Community Guidelines" are all crammed together. 7 Pro SP1IE 8That is what they are - the community Guidelines is our *new* guidelines (a basic to the point guideline for newbies). You have a screenshot? what is your resolution? I don't see it on my Win 7 pro/IE8 on my laptop - TC
7/18/2013Adrian Wattsunable to subscribe or unsubscribe from newsletters 7 Home x64FF22 chrome28 IE10Adrian, what do you mean it "lost" email address? Do you mean when you click on "edit your profile" it's not auto-populating the field with your email address? - TC - I had not received any newsletters after the 12th and when i went to my profile the field for email address was empty. I can only think it did not get carried across to the new site for some reason. A couple of the other fields were empty too but i did not note them and i can't get into my profile atm due to a page not found error.

7/18/2013CharlieSpencerFlagged posts - the word 'Flagged' is in white text against a white background. A reader can't tell it's already been flagged, and no 'Flag' link shows, so it looks like the post is exempt from being flagged. , Win 8 Ent 64-bitPale Moon 20.2.1wording changes to "Flagged"
7/19/2013DogkneesIn a discussion, under the words"Member Comments", my name appears with a drop-down arrow to the left. Clicking on the arrow has no effect.
