Re: custom islands in forums tool Ruben 11/20/2020 5:16 PM
Thanks but
This is the suggestion forum.
I was suggesting a management tool to find them easier.

Sql query works and I have used it but it is still cumbersome switching between multiple pages to get to the objective.

Read my last comment in the post

For example
In the custom islands page there would be plenty of room to add a column named Custom Island Insert
and in the rows show the forum they are in.
Plus possibly a indicator to show all islands which are in use whether they be side or insert islands.

What happens at least in my case.
I may have 100 custom islands and have only 20 active at a time switching them in and out for specific reasons.
Such as holidays specials sales or current events
So it gets hard determining if say a custom island is in use or not and where it is being used.
Or used in multiple locations.

Or my observation is most users create/add a island then add another island.
So they end up with most islands do not work correctly.
Since there is no way to delete a island in the cp they end up with many islands that are not even being used.

Oh another request allow to delete a island!

Re: v7.7.5 Active Topics Display Name Incorrect Ruben 11/17/2020 10:32 PM
Good catch.
I can see that on your forum
Current active topics most current post shows admin as poster but the time stamp and post belong to the OP as reply

Maybe you should lock that topic in case the developers want to see it.

Then you might want to read up on the actual document.
It may show something that conflicts with either your html includes or server settings.

Re: No hop to menu in the category pages Ruben 11/08/2020 6:03 PM
Okay isaac

This is my findings.
At first reading I felt this was not the case because I have never entered a value for the hop to popup menu width.
Well I revisited the setting.
Selected the field and found the cursor not completely left justified.
So a non visible character was inserted in the field.
Once I deleted the entry in the field and saved it .
The hop to menu re-appeared in the bottom

In fact I had two sites with the same issue.
In which I never added a value to that field in either site So I assumed it was changed in the 7.7.4 release.
Because it was there prior to the upgrade to 7.7.4

I am not sure what character was inserted because it was not visible and now deleted.
Nor do I know how it got inserted to begin with.

But it does work correctly as designed now once it was deleted on both sites.

Re: UBBT77 Styles settings question Morgan 11/07/2020 2:29 PM
Thank you Isaac, I choose to delete the UBBT75-76 styles
I actually kept the old disabled UBBT70 and UBBT70 Light at least for a while.
We do have some very old members who really want to stick with them. So for a while I'm being soft with them.
Plan is to only Keep the two UBBT77.

Now I need to find need me to find a responsive SubNavbar template that fits with our forum for the rest of the site.
but thats another story

Re: Forum ERRORs Gizmo 11/04/2020 8:37 PM
As Ruben said, the returned result message from the database handler is "Server shutdown in progress", whereas the "limit" is simply the end of the query sent to the server.

HTTP 5xx errors are server related (4xx generally being script related somehow); 522 (Connection timed out) and 524 (ultimately being the same over a Content Delivery Network such as Cloudflare). Judging just purely off of the error messages, it sounds like you were experiencing downtime because the server restarted.

As these are server errors there's really nothing really that UBB.threads script support can do; this would generally be something to direct at your web host.

Re: Change administrator mjuby 11/02/2020 8:07 PM
Thanks, that helps. I didn't see the error since it was in the Advanced Settings section and wasn't obvious until I opened that section up. Without seeing any error message I assumed that the settings were being updated. I've found the error and fixed it.

Re: HTML Gizmo 10/30/2020 6:44 PM
Just as a simple example of what looks like simple code; as an admin go ahead and post a HTML post just including the following:

Notice that by having a stray close table or div tag how your entire forum is messed up on any page displaying this post (the thread, portal news, active topics in this case); this can happen with HTML posts... This is just a minor display problem (and these are two common tags for HTML), not even touching on potential security issues.

I would be surprised to hear a legitimate excuse on why a normal user would need HTML posting access on your forum that can't be solved with UBBCode; all of the formatting coding they should need is represented by UBBCode, HTML/Web Design tools aren't generally something one would need to contribute to a conversation.

Re: v7.7.4 Control Panel Issue Jake 10/27/2020 1:06 AM
With that issue solved I just upgraded to v7.7.5. It took just a few minutes to upload the files and then another few minutes to do the upgrade.


UBB is great! Our community has happily utilized UBB since 1998 (22 years!!!).
