9th Sept 2018 - Forum upgrade / planned downtime

Post by Jools »

Hi all,

At 1130 GMT, the forum will shutdown for an hour or two while I upgrade the forum software. Sorry for the lack of service - will be up, running and ASAP.

Cheers,

Jools

Well, that did not go well. Something wrong in the upgrade process so we're as we were. Will research and try again soon.

Cheers,

I have finally managed to update the forum, however greater security comes with the price that I need to re-integrate parts of it with the rest of the site.

The most visible issue from the start is that images don't work. I am working on that now and will post updates as we go.

Cheers,

Jools

Hi Jools,

Maybe this error is related? I've only seen it on the home screen and it has only appeared twice, both in the past few minutes. On Windows PC using Chrome browser.

Thanks Marc, good to know, it will be our upgrade to php7.2 - will check it out; it's quite a good thing as it is highlighting issues in my code that previously would have been there but not thrown errors. Looking into it.

Hi Jools,

I seem to have stumbled upon a few more possibly related errors.

The blank page with the error appeared when I tried to update the number of jaguar cats I'm keeping.

Hi Mark,

The first one should be fixed, could you try it again please?

Hi Jools,

Still seeing an error I'm afraid.

The second image is when I hit save at the foot of the edit species page.

Still from my mobile, I'll try to remember to check on my PC in the morning.

Although as you see in the third image one of the errors has gone.

From my PC I still get the error after saving changes to my fish (the middle picture above), but not the error in the first picture above.

Getting there, I still get an error after hitting save once I edit the fish details.

The other errors have gone though.

No problem!

If it helps it also appears behind the main page if I don't enter required data and hit save.
