Hello! And velcome to my review of ze update 4.3. Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah! countvoncount.gif.690b7b58992faa34a487f3d810b63400.gif

 

Let me start by saying that I vill haff no -script for this thread. That is because you are not allowed to say the -script on ze boards. Ze boards will add a hyphen - or minus figure if you are unintelligent - to the beginning of ze scipt word typed. Look, see here:

 

 

Also, it will add another hyphen if you quote the hyphen adorned -script in subsequent postages. What madness is this!? Why are plot and synopsis spared the hyphen, and the full fury of ze boards comes down on the poor -script! 

I do not haff a clue of this.

One! One post 4.3 update oddity. Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah!  countvoncount.gif.690b7b58992faa34a487f3d810b63400.gif

Hello! And velcome to my second visit to ze review of ze update 4.3 countvoncount.gif.a1f7e00bd14404b263c0369fed8dddce.gif

 

Ven you create the postage which includes ze embeddedment of ze other thread a dirty great error message can be seen. Look here, at the dirty great message, and also above:

644120625_templatecore.thumb.PNG.4963f9bbf559eca6c9d4ecdcd1688172.PNG

 

What madness is this!? At least on this occasion the error has the good grace to inform the team of the AdminCP that all they need do is "Run the support tool in the AdminCP to restore the default theme".

That at least is helpful. And it has only been dirtying up ze place for 3 weeks so it can't be too much of a problem to the three men and ze Canine Like Sparkenwood who inhabit zis place.

Two! Two post 4.3 update oddities. Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah!  countvoncount.gif.690b7b58992faa34a487f3d810b63400.gif

Hello! And velcome to my third visit to ze update of the 4.3 review. Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah! countvoncount.gif.d0b1cac9afdc0c472070c67a48c47b8d.gif

 

Ze eagle eyed among you may haff noticed ze absence of ze helpful drop down menu on ze function of ze search bar. On your desktop, it iz here:

search1.PNG.29c7ee52c7667a84ac6a670cfe83da26.PNG

 

And it haff no drop down menu no longer! Curse you ze 4.3!

In ze days of ze good old ones it had a drop down menu like so:

Hey, who changed ze avatar of ze I Marwood and Get? Bring back ze pretty girl!

Now, what madness is this! Search me, heh, heh. I make ze funny joke.

Hello! And velcome to my fourth visit to ze update of the 4.3 review. Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah! countvoncount.gif.a3a000be04b40a7c47d4347e889729eb.gif

 

Still on ze feature of ze search, who I wonder realises that the search parameters (you like that word yes?) are different depending on which screen you are in. So, if you haff cause to search when in ze journals page, your search results will be limited only to ze content of ze journals. 

Look here. I am in ze page of ze journals, and I think "I must search for ze content of ze Barry"

barry1.thumb.PNG.7ff9339758b1dab20b9e099926286454.PNG

 

I search for ze Barry and I get this result:

barry2.PNG.6d95a025c6121843e64b4e2a7dd9f8fb.PNG

 

See! I had unwittingly only searched for Barry in ze features of ze journals!

What madness is this!? No wonder nobody persons can find anything when searching. Try it from your profile page, and it is set to 'status updates' only. Should all searches not be set to the 'all content' in the first instance and then filtered? Madness I tell you, madness!

Hello! And velcome to my fifth visit to the fair and even handed review of ze update of ze 4.3! Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah! countvoncount.gif.c940fdaab145df11ace02846b4c8cd00.gif

Vot is zis horrible advertisement doing sitting directly on top of ze content important? Why has ze pre-4.3 gap gone a missing? 

ad1.thumb.PNG.1f580b552ac2fa57dca8509c332de0ca.PNG

 

This absence of ze gap makes for an unappealing look. Look here, ze add is merging into my profile. I do not like it's intrusiveness. For those familiar with ze London Underground, zis is one gap that I do indeed mind!

What contrary to the art of visual management madness is this!?

Hello! And velcome to my sixth visit to the still fair and even handed review of ze update of ze 4.3! Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah! countvoncount.gif.78d92c0e41069e0568712475e3baa16f.gif

Now, there are some unkind people on ze boards that I must ignore. Simple, there is a function for this. I will go to ze settings and select ze ignore:

Children of the night what is going on?!

ignored2.PNG.2febb792ebc98371f749bf8e2b1b5664.PNG

 

Ze page of the ignore, it does not exist.

No matter, I will go to the settings tab. Children of the night where has the settings tab gone!?

settings2.PNG.4d14d3111e5f8c9fdf84a3112c80542c.PNG

 

The man of the Architrave expressly states it should be there in his helpful how to guide of ze boards new!

settings1.thumb.PNG.e7e17bbb52989ad3c231a9c35c3a4cda.PNG

 

Where is ze settings menu at ze top left as described in ze bullet point FIRST!?

Oh, I haff found it under 'forums' - ze go to place for all your settings needs.

Not!

What contrary to the art of function location intuitiveness madness is this!?

Hello! And velcome to my seventh visit to the still fair and even handed review of ze update of ze 4.3! Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah! countvoncount.gif.400e02c80120fb4fe7babeef8af4fe4e.gif

 

One of ze features cool of ze boards new is ze feature of ze profile visitors recent. It tells us of our profile visitors recent. But look, it haff ceased to work post 4.3!

132993376_recentprofilevisitors.PNG.5468da479661d5d64c5f835dcc644bf6.PNG

 

I visit ze page of ze member Jimmery and my visitation haff not been recorded! What madness is this!? I haff visited others (logged in of course) and no visits were recorded! My own Profile Visitations Recent haff grown in number, yet no body person haff visited.

Of haff they!?

Hello! And velcome to my eighth visit to the still fair and even handed review of ze update of ze 4.3! Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah! countvoncount.gif.d7e23bc9ad3f54e8c081ad398d8cbaa8.gif

 

I like to add ze pictures to my postages. They brighten the postages, no? But look! Ze pictures of ze past have gone ze walkabouts intermittent! These are not ze results of the Bucket Photo calamitations! These are ze uploaded from ze PC pictures. And they haff gone!

1636045169_missingpictures.thumb.PNG.415efce5712d70db679f65ef9ebcbef5.PNG

 

What madness of the intermittent failure to retain ze information vital is this!?

Hello! And velcome to my ninth thousand and fifty fifth visit to the unilaterally fair and even handed review of ze update of ze 4.3! Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah! countvoncount.gif.43bc99c86c39207870c58feb938ca575.gif

Every so often I like to ask ze question of ze CGC on ze subject matters important. Ze CGC, in turn, like to delete zem. But look! Ze latest question asked of ze CGC still sits as a pending approval post after ze month full of inactivity!

418809099_pendingapproval.thumb.PNG.264e8a9f73cec56a39997b219c281ba5.PNG

 

What madness of rudeness is this!? Given ze issues elsewhere, how does one know if ze message is being ignored deliberately by ze unkind staffage or if it haff not even been seen due to another of the post 4.3 glitches which exist in their many multiplications of numbers!?

 

Nine! Nine post 4.3 update oddities. Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah! countvoncount.gif.43bc99c86c39207870c58feb938ca575.gif

OK, I haff created the boredom of myself now. So I will not mention ze glitches with ze three hour wait for 'your activities' or ze strange and unexplained absences of ze 'members online'. These haff ze coverage elsewhere.

But look!

Ze Count has achieved the pinnacle of popularity singularly with his postages of the glitches nine!

Zis is good, no?

As the Architrave did say, "4.3 is out"

1940529355_4.3isout.oforder.PNG.bd4c2b158be61fe13e11adc5cd2fc284.PNG

 

 

Of order! :D

Ten! countvoncount.gif.c2ade13abab83abc1d29d273b426bbb6.gif

OK, I lie at nine. One more for ze road.

Ze issue of ze members online missing hides a further, common issue - namely, ze need to refresh ze page to effect ze action.

Look.

Select ze online users. We see 706 of them:

1.thumb.PNG.724e7ca1cc72e9aacff474651e79680e.PNG

 

Filter to 'logged in'. We now haff 4 logged in, but still we shows ze 706 online users:

2.thumb.PNG.49f0425819a59bd2c6cbf6b7dfb22316.PNG

 

Refresh ze page:

3.thumb.PNG.38f1a974c117afd17db878aa649f9cf4.PNG

 

Now we haff 5 users online - one more snuck in.

What madness is this!? What is this board-wide anomaly of always having to refresh ze page to effect ze full action?

Ah, ha, ha, ha, ha! countvoncount.gif.c2ade13abab83abc1d29d273b426bbb6.gif

I have been moved from ze comics of ze general to ze graveyard of ze questions unanswered! What madness is this!?

 

And after only one hour too. If only ze asking of ze CGC were as quick to perform.... :sorry:

 

 

 

 

What?

Eh?

Oh, sorry.

Ah, ha, ha, ha, hah! countvoncount.gif.c49eb53b0979223bca5f50b97ee620a2.gif

 

Next you will be telling me they have moved ze Happy Birthdays! Heh, heh.      

What!? countvoncount.gif.c49eb53b0979223bca5f50b97ee620a2.gif

Hi there!

Thanks for reporting all of these issues. 4.3 came with a significant amount of changes, most of which are good. It's not unusual for major releases to accidentally introduce some new problems, but the good news is that many of them have already been fixed!

We're actually on 4.3.3 now, which was installed yesterday. Here's a quick response for each of the things you mentioned:

  1. -script - This word is on our special words list, along with a variety of curse words and other words that people might use to try to do something naughty. I don't have the full history of our word filters or details on why this particular word is in the list, though.
  2. Theme out of date error for embedded links - Should be fixed now.
  3. Search dropdown missing - Should be fixed now. Note that the menu looks and functions differently now than it used to.
  4. Search is context-specific by default (IE, searching from a journals URL only searches journals, etc) - Should be fixed now. The fix for #3 should make the behavior much more understandable.
  5. "Barry" is in journals 3 times - A few people seem to like talking about Barry Windsor-Smith ;)
  6. Advertisement display problem - I don't see an image in your post, so I can't tell what problem you're describing here. Can you provide more details if this is still an issue?
  7. "Ignored Users" in user menu links to a bad page - Should be fixed now.
  8. "Settings" not a top level option in main menu - This was moved under "Forums" intentionally, to minimize the number of top level items (certain display issues start happening if you have too many) and make it easier to identify the 4 main feature categories of the boards (forums, journals, galleries, calendars). I also updated Architecht's thread to refer to the My Settings menu in it's new location under Forums.
  9. "Recent Profile Visitors" not updated - This seems to work for me. I visited your profile with a couple different test accounts, and both accounts now show up in your recent visitors list. Perhaps this was just a ploy to get more people to visit your profile? :grin: Just kidding of course... I'm guessing this was fixed with the 4.3.3 installation.
  10. Missing Image - The "missing" image in your screenshot seems to be pointing to https://i.ytimg.com/vi/rba1zgPTtOo/maxresdefault.jpg, which suggests that this image was not uploaded to the boards.
  11. No response in "Ask CGC" - Sorry about that. I've escalated this issue to the support team to make sure that that area of the boards will be monitored properly moving forward.
  12. Count on "Online Users" page only updates with page refresh - I've noticed this too. It's pretty low on the priority list. 4.3.3 DID fix a higher priority problem, which is that very few people were being included when you filtered to "Logged in" on the Online Users list (and possibly any other option besides guest).
  13. This thread moved to the questions / issues forum - That seems appropriate based on the content of the thread :banana:
