maybe it is a coincidence, but it seems the fora got very quiet all of
a sudden…

at least that is how it seems on the nntp side of the fence…

nap!!

The upgrade has enabled collapsing the non-English forums on the home page (as expected).

Talking to yourself again…

One thing I did notice: The forums favicon is now the VBulletin logo instead of the usual Geeko

Seems to be fixed now :slight_smile:

Oops I think my browser had the Geeko logo cached so I renamed my .mozilla directory and got the VBulletin favicon again

I have not problems. I like it!!!

Same here.

You must have caught it before I re-uploaded the new favicon:

If you still see the vBulletin favicon, clear your browser cookes and try again.

Yep I cleared my cookies and it has gone back to the Gecko again :slight_smile:

I keep getting a page not found if I am browsing a thread and then login.

Looks like the login re-direct can’t find the referring URL.

That problem existed before the upgrade. See the Home forum page’s right-hand column under “Most Viewed” threads.

I’ve never experienced it before today.

I guessed as much. Just wanted you to be aware of the history, for info if needed.

Thanks :slight_smile:

Dunno how I missed that thread !!!

If it’d been a brick on a shelf I’d a been konked:-)

vB is crapware, always has been and no matter how much you hack it still is!

Guys,

Just noticed something, if you enter a wrong login and password it will redirect you again to login page but won’t give any error/ notification of authentication failed or incorrect login & password.

Yes I have noticed that too.

Well, it’s not too difficult to notice. When the redirect returns one to a login page with blank input fields for login name and password, that must be a BIG clue that either the login name or password were entered incorrectly or are invalid, and require you to try again. :wink:
