Just to let everyone know we are scheduled for a site update later this evening. The site could be down for several minutes as the updates are installed

Some of the updates we have ordered will be introduce some new features later on after we figure out how to use them. Stay tuned and thanks everyone for your support of WBF. We couldn't have done it without all of you

I was just told that the site will be down. I'm trying to schedule it during the presidential debate this evening as most people will be watching.

Overall looks good. Two small things I have found though:

1. With Windows 10 Edge browser, a different set of icons are being used whether I am logged in or not:



Notice the blue balloons versus the brown boxes we have had.

Chrome works fine.

2. Clicking on "Articles" generates this error:

amirm, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

seems Windows 10 Edge is far from a friendly browser as Bob has pointed out in his Windows 10 thread

Other browsers are totally unaffected in the update

Ah, looks like it is the other way around (that is, edge browser is right) and it is indeed broken for all browsers. I looked up the generated code and it is the same for all browsers (more or less). The icon in question is: http://www.whatsbestforum.com/images/statusicon/forum_new-48.png



I refreshed both IE and Edge browsers and they both show the blue icon. Here is the important bit: I refreshed Chrome and it too is displaying blue icons now! And as noted earlier by caliaripaolo, the favicon has reverted to vbulletin check mark instead of WBF. I seem to remember adding the "new" label to the ones I modified so I think they are OK but why they are blue now, is strange.

To replicate, just hit F5 in chrome and you should see all the icons on the home page become blue.

You need to go to the file manager and download the above icon and see what it looks like on your computer Steve. If it looks blue then the look of the forum style is reverted back and only the cached version in the browser remains for some users. The old styles need to be found and put back in (BTW, I tested all the styles and they all show the blue icons).

Or just open a ticket and cut and paste the above text and get URLJet to troubleshoot it.

The reason Chrome didn't get hit right away is that it is one persistent browser when it comes to caching. No matter how many directives you give it in the web page, it refuses to throw away the cached web content. It will however do it on its own at some time in the future so even if this is working for some, it will stop to behave that way. This made it hard in the past to test changes because it would continue to show the old even after I had made changes.

The major glitch so far is the new feature: "Articles"

When I click on it (Google Chrome, my regular surfing board):

vBulletin Message
