    Update tonight

    I'll have to shut our forum down for up to an hour tonight (at midnight, eastern time) to perform an update.

    Normally I wouldn't do this so close to a suicide pool, but this update is necessary in order for our Facebook Connect members to be able to login.

    As always, I'll do it as quickly as I can.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    Well, the threads are not up yet, and I won't email Jon until the morning. So, I think we are ok.

    Re: Update tonight

    The update is done and Facebook Connect is once again working. However, I'm seeing that the RPBs are not showing me a link to go to the first unread post nor bold titles of threads that have new posts. I hope this will work itself out. If not, I'll try and fix it.

    If you notice any other issues, please post about them in this thread.

    Re: Update tonight

    Now it looks like the RPBs are showing the little arrow links (and bold type) to go to the first unread post, but they're not releasing that after you've caught up on the thread.

    I'll give it a little time, a few days maybe, before I start to freak out.

    Correct. I had to click on all forum read to get rid of the boldness

    Just came across another bug. When I click the 'agree with' or 'like' buttons they disappear but don't actually show that I've clicked them. When I refresh the page it's like nothing has changed.

    I just had the same problem.

    Same issues here. That's the only thing I've noticed. I've posted and edited just fine, but had the posts show as unread until I went and marked everything as read.

    Re: Update tonight

    OK, thanks for the verifications. I'll also look into the "agree with" and "like" problems.

    I know how important the RPBs, especially, are. Please be patient as I troubleshoot and look for a fix. This isn't in my wheelhouse but I might be able to find something out.

    On a positive note, I think the "Go to first unread post" links are working -- clicking on one will take you to the first unread post since your last reading of the thread. I think the link and bolding are simply not disappearing.

    Re: Update tonight

    The remaining link will take you to the last post in the thread after it's been read fully. I'm not sure if that's consistent with it's behavior when it's supposed to be gone, as you never really have the chance to tell normally.

    Re: Update tonight

    It looks like logging out and logging back in refreshes the RPBs to be correct, until someone updates a thread, then it's wonky again.

    I've disabled the "Agree with this post/Like this post" for the time being.

    Re: Update tonight

    You can kind of keep an eye on who made the last post in a thread to know if it's been updated or not.

    (What a pain.)

    Here's what I'm going to do... nothing, until after the French Open. We'll have to limp by using the broken RPBs. I don't want to take a chance of making things worse during the Suicide Pool.
