I'll be debugging and fixing up the site over the next few days, but in the interim we can use this thread to post bugs or fixes that you find that I can put on my "to do" list.

I joined here a month ago and when I would go to threads I could hit the link at the top of the page that would take me back into the section the thread was in or to the main forum, that is missing now.

Another thing the last two days I have to log in each time I come here, even if I just was here and logged in and selected remember me.

Thanks Ed. We'll keep an eye on the cookies (the little bits of code that remember your visit) - I have had problems with them in the past because the code that we use in the forums does not always play well with the code on the front page. Additionally, if I am constantly changing the code, you will be getting new cookies somewhat frequently. I'll let you know when I'm done, and then you can log in several times and let me know if it works.

When I log in it takes me to www.bonsainut.com/forums/login.php and gives me the following message:

"Invalid Redirect URL (http://bonsainut.com/)."

I am logged in, but it isn't properly redirecting me to the home page. Thanks for all your hard work Bonsai Nut.

The first page I get (the forum's main menu) does NOT note that I have been logged in as jkl -- although I am logged in, because I can click on "What's New?" and get all new messages since my last visit. (The old site used to say "Welcome JKL" or something similar.)

First time I arrived here to find the new format, I didn't realize that and I too got the "invalid redirect" error message when I plugged my name and password at the "Log In" prompt. I went back a page and clicked on "What;'s new?" just in case, and discovered that I WAS logged in.

Maybe you need to reinstate that short welcome message???????

I'm still showing overwritten text on the right side of the opening screen. Not anywhere else on the site (that I've checked so far).

I know it is a tedious business debugging a new or revised site. Thanks.

Part of the problem is going to be that most of you still have your old cookies for the old site. So you won't be recognized when you return, or will initially get error messages - because the cookie is trying to direct you to part of the site that no longer exists, or has been moved. I hope that the majority of these problems will be resolved when people log out, then log back in. Separately, you may find you log in, get an error message, but then everything on the site works fine and you never see the error message again (I hope). If you find an error, log out of the site, close your browser window, then come back and see if you can repeat the error.

Stan I fixed this bug today. You should no longer see this error message.

The check box for "Remember Me" does not seem to be working. I have it checked but when I return, I am not logged in.

Otherwise, GREAT work. I like the new look!

Thanks
Frank

I have this on my "to-do" list. Try logging out (using the log out button) and then log back in. Or if possible, log out, close your browser window, clear your cookies (if you know how), and come back and log in.

There are three main parts of the site currently and they are supposed to use the same cookie to recognize you and keep you logged in. Right now as you move around in the site I believe the cookie is getting dropped or the site is looking for it in the wrong place. I'll figure it out eventually. Right now I am focusing on some other stuff, first. I need to get the front page looking nice again.

I am still waiting for my cookies!! I just had to sign in again, no big deal really, weighing it against the tips and pics of Bonsai I get to see here. I also got this error yesterday "Invalid Redirect URL (http://bonsainut.com/)." a few times, then I finally got in.

By the way I like chocolate chip with walnuts in them, if you could find my dear departed grannies recipe I would appreciate it. If you could get them to me hot that would be even better.

When the site loads it recognizes me, my name is on the users list, and at the top of the page. But when I go to look at posts, it acts like I'm a guest, no pics, won't let me post. So when I go to sign in, then all the new posts are gone. And all this is super slow sometimes. Sometimes the site will take minutes to load pages, sometimes it's fast as usual.

Yes. The Karaoke Bar posts won't show up on the front page (recent posts) section - but I have yet to remove them from "what's new" because it requires a little manual coding that isn't as straight-forward as the front page code. I had a busy weekend, but will have a lot more time to spend on the site tomorrow.

And again -- thank you for keeping on task and tracking all those bits of code down.

I'm still getting "Invalid Redirect URL (http://bonsainut.com/)" when I log in.

Also - not sure if this is a change from previous behavior - searching for old posts seems to not work very well. Is this by design or indicative of a problem? For instance...I've made 45 posts to the forum but when I click on my profile "show posts" only 1 shows up. And if I use the advanced search to look for posts made by individuals I get only a couple of recent posts, or "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms"

Thanks coh. Let me try to track these down. I think I know what the search problem may be, but I'll have to confirm.

I'm pretty sure I have to rebuild the search indexes. This is a fancy way of saying there is a black hole in the middle of the searches - you can find older posts but not newer ones. This is a server-intensive process that is best run late at night. I'll let you know as I find out more. This isn't a big deal - just a maintenance artifact from updating the site.

Exactly where are you on the site when you try to log in? Which page, and which "box" do you click on. On some pages there may be more than one log-in block, so try to remember exactly which one.

I'm not sure where I was on the site when that happened this morning ("Invalid redirect"). Since then, I've logged on several times and each time it has redirected properly. I'll keep an eye on it and try to note the specifics if it happens anymore.
