Quote from: tuck0411 on 02/01/2023 03:10 PMWhen viewing the feedback page for a member one of the columns is headed "Detail" and then there is a "View detail" link for each line.  When you click on this link you get a page that you'd expect to show the details of that particular feedback, but all it says is "Detailed comment" with no actual details.  The old site would show you the comments that were left but there are none here.

Hey Todd.  See the attached pic.  Do you see the details to the right of the "Detailed comment" label?

Yep, seeing it now.  It wasn't there yesterday but I suspect I was looking at a particular feedback item where no detailed comment had been left.  Thanks.

Mine is in.  Thanks for letting me play, Gary!   :smoker2:

Thanks, Paul.  Gmail is a pain. They're so thorough in their security that they've managed to lock me out of my other email account with them.  I don't receive many emails at that one and they recently asked me to double-verify that it was actually me trying to use it by demanding I give them my phone number so they could send me a text message to reply to in order to let me in to it. This was after I'd already verified it was me by replying to an email they'd sent to my primary account. I refuse to give out my phone number to anyone I don't personally know, so that account is now unuseable to me.  I repeat, Gmail is a pain.

Quote from: tuck0411 on 01/12/2023 11:58 AMThe email settings are not working.  I've got all the boxes checked to receive an email when each thing happens and I have not received a single email as of yet.  You can't see it in the pic, but I've also got the box checked farther up the page for "Receive forum newsletters, announcements and important notifications by email."  This could be a problem when someone who doesn't log in regularly has been PM'd an invite to a pass or a Geek Critique or something else of similar importance.

I only have the emails enabled for PMs and I do get emails when new ones come in.  Consider this a test for your emails.  I quoted you post above, and I'm going to @tuck0411 here as well, so that seemingly should generate an email.  I'm also going to follow up with a PM and see if that does anything.  Not to state the obvious, but do you check your spam folder for them as well?

All of the above answered in reply to your PM. No emails have been received.  Be interesting to know if anyone else is seeing this problem.

This seems to be fixed now.  Anyone who has a gmail email address was affected.  Gmail required additional DNS entries to prevent email spoofing.  Anyone else who might be having email issues, please PM me, but hopefully this has been fixed.

-Paul

Definitely fixed, at least at my end.  I've gotten emails for the latest two PMs you sent me this morning and another one for your quote of my last reply in this thread.  Thanks, Paul.

You're welcome, Pete.  Don't know if I'd call it a "hit", though.  One of those is the March GC stick...   :-)

Quote from: wescat on 01/02/2023 06:46 AMWhen I go to the cigars page:   https://www.cigargeeks.com/index.php?action=cigars

And select "Man O' War" from the brands list, and click on search, the following message displays:  "No cigars were found that matched your search criteria."

The only way I can get the Man O' War database entries to return is to type "man o" into the keyword search.

It doesn't like apostrophes.  There is a brand called "420's" which won't return anything, either, when searched. It appears to be the only special character that does this.  I've tried brands containing parens, exclamation points, periods, percentage signs, hyphens, and accent marks without seeing any issues.  This also happens when searching your humidor.

Thanks, Bruce. John (amigodecigars) has his stick and the other four packages will be going out this week.

Here's an odd one... when searching my humidor for a particular cigar using the "Search Humidors" field, if the cigar name has an apostrophe in it, the result comes up as "You do not have any cigars in your Current Inventory."  For example, I have a cigar in my inventory with the brand name of "Don't Tread On Me".  If I search for the entire name, or even just "Don't", I get "You do not have any cigars in your Current Inventory."  However, if I search for "Don" or "tread on me", the cigar comes up in the search results.

I guess there's two issues here - the apostrophe throwing off the results and the fact the text is incorrect.  It should say something like "You do not have any cigars by that name in your Current Inventory."

And it may be that an apostrophe is not the only special character that would cause this, but it's the only one I've tried.

Welcome back, Doug.  I sent you a PM awhile back...   :smoker2:

Just checked, nothing there.

Just sent it again.

Quote from: tuck0411 on 12/21/2022 12:26 AMTwo issues...
 - There doesn't seem to be an easy way to look at one's own profile page.  The old site had a "My Profile" button on the left side of the home page along with all the other buttons that were there.  This site doesn't have that and it's not listed under the account menu at the top left. The only way I've found to look at this page is to look yourself up under the member list and click on your name or to find a post you've made in the forum and click on your name there.

- There seems to be no way to look at feedback, either your own or anyone else's.  There was a "View feedback" link on the profile page at the old site but there isn't one here.  And I don't see it anywhere else, either. 

It's late and I'm tired, which probably means I'm just blind and can't see this stuff.  I hope so and thanks in advance to anyone who can point out where these two things are at.

So for seeing your profile, click the dropdown with your name at the top left.  From there you'll see an option for "Profile Details".  That will bring up the form to edit your profile.  To see your full profile, click on the "Profile Info" tab.

For the Trades Feedback, I added it to the same Account menu popup in the top left.  You'll also see it listed as a menu option when you are in your Profile.

Good suggestion to make that Trader access easier.  Hopefully that helps.

-Paul

The "Profile info" tab, that's what I was missing last night, thanks.  Found the feedback, too, although I'd suggest labeling it "Feedback" instead of "Trades".  Actually, it might be good to put a big "Feedback" button at the top of every page.  It's hard enough to get folks to leave feedback around here without making it hard to find, too. 

So, if I'm looking at someone else's profile info page, I can see their feedback stats, ie. number of positives and negatives, but I can't see the actual feedback.  I can see my own feedback from my own page, but I'm not seeing any obvious way to view someone else's feedback.

Quote from: ninfiction on 12/20/2022 10:19 AMSeems I'm able to get here on my work pc. At home on my Windows laptop I get the Sorry page. I cleaned everything as far as I know but still only get that. Tried 3 different browsers. I'll have to dig a little deeper. Does Windows keep cookies and a cache someplace other then in the browser specifically. Seems odd that no matter what I do, 3 different browsers end up on the Sorry page.

I'm technically challenged and that could be part of the issue.

Very odd.  But you aren't the only one apparently.  Try opening a new browser window in "Private" or "Incognito" or whatever equivalent mode they have.  They should ignore any old cache, cookies, etc...  I'd be curious if that helps it.

-Paul

Might be DNS caching on whatever internet provider servers are being used. If that's it, it should clear up over time.

I just posted a reply to Bob's query explaining how to post pics here and when submitting it it gave me a warning about how three other replies had been posted while I was composing my reply and that I may want to review my reply before posting. I didn't want to do that so left the page, then I find that my reply wasn't posted.  Very annoying. Not going to go to the trouble of re-composing that explanation, so hopefully Bob can figure out how to do it...  :angry:

Quote from: tuck0411 on 12/17/2022 11:18 PMEmails are not being sent by the system when a PM is received.  There are two settings for getting emails in this case - one for when a new PM is received and one for when a reply is received to a previously sent PM.  I have both boxes checked in my account settings and recently received a reply to a PM I had sent to another member but no email was received for this. It's possible this is working for when a new PM is received but I haven't personally hit this test case yet.

I seem to be getting emails both ways now.  It does seem like they might not be immediate.  Maybe the system queues them up and send them all at once every now and then.  also, did you check your spam folder.  I'm hoping with the new dedicated server and IP address we get less spam designations.

I did check my spam folder.

Please try again later." I don't want to try again later. I want to see the results now.  Why would it want me to wait until later?

Made a change.  See if it fixes it.


Yep, fixed, thanks.

Quote from: tuck0411 on 12/17/2022 11:43 AMGetting a "Database error" when trying to upload a picture to my gallery.  Same error when uploading the full size pic or after reducing it to the previous limit of 100 kb from the old site.

Hi @tuck0411.  I saw it come through.  The new system sends me alerts when errors happen - another nice benefit.  The one you were getting had to do with the size of the title being too large.  I changed the form so that it limits the size to match the DB.  So you should be good now.  Please let me know.

-Paul

Yep, working now, thanks.
