After the migration. Report problems?

Post by Calisson »

Hi.
Daeron and Rork have fixed many problems that have been evidenced since the migration.
If you spot anything still requiring a fix, this thread is the place to report it.
Thank you for your participation to the improvement of D.net.

Not sure if the migration caused it or not, but the "Mark Forum Read" button doesn't appear to be working properly. It seems like it works at first, but then when I come back the next day all the old topics are still there, listed as unread.

While not related to the migration itself, it is indeed a technical issue that came up recently. Initially I thought it had to do with an update to Google Chrome, but I'll dig a little deeper.
You can clear the list by logging out and back in, but that only resets the list.

Just to make sure, though. Are you sure the problem has to do with "unread" messages? If I click "mark all forums read", and then "view unread posts", then it tells me there are no results.
However, if I click "view new posts" (which should give posts since last visit, read or not), then that list keeps growing.

I'm using Firefox, so it's definately not related to Chrome.

It may indeed be that I'm clicking "New" rather than "Unread" - as with all things done so many times for so many years, I'm not actually paying attention to exactly which link I click, it's all just muscle memory. But having said that, whatever I was doing always worked before, and now it isn't.

FireFox had an update as well... Hm. But I wouldn't bet my money on it just yet.

The issue seems releated to session/cookie management, which is browser and server related. No settings changed on the server. Googling about, I find another forum with the same issue:
http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic ... 81&t=46616
Which is suspicious to say the least.
Yet other phpBB3 servers don't have the same problem. (Like Ulthuan or something ;))

It could be related to a php version update on the server, which may have messed up a session management function of phpBB. Anyhow. I'll keep looking!

I removed my own cookies to see if it would solve the problem. Now here's to waiting ;)

This morning I remembered to force myself to click "Unread" and lo! it appears to be working as intended. "New" still show two pages of stuff that, well, isn't new at all.

So after a bit of waiting, and testing ver various devices, the issue seems to return server-side. I'm going to check if there was an unexpected php upgrade or something that messed up the session management.

I had the same issue today, however when the page refreshed the message was in the outbox. That was on IE though.

Aye, the issue is related. There is something notably wrong with the session management. It seems to be a bug that occurs on phpBB3, if I'm to believe their bug tracker... but they haven't been able to figure out what causes it. Well that's hopeful! ;)

I'm working on it.

The good news is that I've discovered where the system goes wrong. The bad news is... I don't know why. Not yet ;)
I can remedy it on a daily basis while looking for the cause.

I put in a small patch. It should help with the new posts, but not all issues are resolved yet.

Thank you for reporting. Unfortunately, not all issues are resolved yet, but the new posts should update more frequently.
