Okay just tried to view the new forum gallery and it keeps on saying there's a connection problem.

They're doing maintenance on the database, as I understand it.

Working on the database issue, Forum Gallery is likely not to be accessible until we lock down what we're looking for...

I've deleted the viewed pictures log as a quick fix. I will work on fixing this properly at a later date.

Thus, all pictures will now show as unviewed for everyone.

This is going to really mess with my compulsion to get rid of those "new" tags with extreme prejudice.

I'm going to have to do occasional dumps of that database until I have a more permanent solution, so you might want to get comfortable with those new tags :P.

Do what you gotta do, man. :'(

Actually, as long as I have the last few days/pages all checked off, I won't even notice the older ones. Not a huge deal.

Wouldn't it just be simpler to just remove this functionality completely?  This is from someone who gasped in horror when he saw the new image tags had returned on all pictures. If it makes life easier for you I wouldn't be bothereed if the "new" tag thing was disabled as well.

The game 'City of Sin'
https://hypnopics-collective.net/smf_forum/index.php?topic=20273.0
has a link to a games collective server which is part of this collective

The link no longer works, is there an updated link or is the game still available to play?

What's happened is that the starting URL doesn't point correctly.

It was:

https://www.games-collective.net/citysin/

It now is:

https://www.games-collective.net/citysin/index.htm


I have changed the first post in this thread, I am going to have Hax look into correcting the URL pointing to make this work correctly...

It should be fine now, please let me know if there are missing files or oddities and i'll look into them...

Okay, fixed that issue! Whenever a root folder is accessed it should automatically look for index.html then index.htm. Thanks for the bug report!

And it won't be coming back either...

The unviewed tab causes real issues and there's no simple way to fix the problem.

We leave it in, the servers crash. We take it out, everything's fine. For the moment, until the "NextGen" Gallery gets bullt, the Unviewed is not going to work...

I'm sorry about this, but every time that button gets pushed, the database creates several million rows of data on a temporary basis. That overloads the server and we go down...

As it is now, Unviewed will go to a blank page and no further. For the sake of the site, and the sanity of Hax most of all, this is what will be until we get something better to replace that...

Whenever that is.

I know that the 'Bulk Add Pictures' function in the gallery has always had some issues, but until recently it hadn't really given me any problems.  However, the last few times I've tried to use it the system processes a file to 100%, stops for a short time, then returns an 'upload failed' error indication, and this is repeated for each file in the list.  In some cases, when I check my gallery afterwards, the file is in fact there despite the reported error while other times it is not.  Aside from the ease and speed of using the bulk upload function, I also prefer it because it doesn't require me to enter a title, description or keywords, which I think probably reduces the frequency with which my RP-related doodles intrude into gallery users' searches and suggestions.

I just tested it using a different browser and it seemed to work fine, so it might be a firefox issue.

I just went through the error log and there seems to be a SSL error. Are you on the most up to date Firefox?

The new server is set to only use modern SSL ciphers and reject all others, which may be causing the difficulties with Firefox.

Should be at least very close to the most recent version.  It's Version 60.0.2 according to the 'about firefox' option in the help menu.  'Check for update' says it's up to date.  Looking back over my gallery, the errors do seem to have arisen only after the most recent update.

Yeah, this might be just a browser quirk. If the problem spreads to more browsers I will put more effort into troubleshooting, but as for now, I can't seem to find any issues with the server configuration.

Don’t know if this has been brought up yet, but the “unviewed” button for the picture archive just gives me a blank screen. When I Just look at the recent picture posts, I can only see the first page (200 images). If either issue could be fixed, it would be greatly appreciated. I don’t get here as often as I’d like, and would enjoy catching up when I can.

Hello!

The Unviewed Button has been disabled as it was causing some severe database issues. In short, when you clicked on that button something in the neighbourhood of ten million temporary rows were added to the database and it either crashed it or made things go to a crawl.

In order not to have the Collective go down over and over again, the Admin took the decision to remove that capability from the Gallery. (We can't remove the button, it's hard coded into SMF and taking it out causes more errors.)

You do have the option of clicking on "Recent Pictures (List All)" at the top of the main Gallery page which will allow access to all of the Gallery images...

Please excuse if this is not the appropriate place to post this but I could be see where else.

Recently, at least the last week but probably longer, the 'New Forum Gallery' has been very slow to
- load the thumbnail images, each can take seconds to load
- view or download images, these can take from 10 seconds to a minute

While my home internet is not blindingly fast it is a lot faster than these images/pages. At the same time other forums and sites were running at a normal speed for my internet.

I did a search earlier looking for the term 'bimbo' and it listed 10 pages or so, but the first page failed to load all thumbnails and I was regularly getting download failures on images or some of dictionaryhash's pdf files.

Thanks, feel free to PM if there is anything I can do to assist or give more information.

Thanks for checking, I would guess it is something on my end, a browser add-on or similar interferring. I did try a different browser to double check and it was running at the same speed. Still I assume it must just be my odd internet connection. I will be upgrading it in the near future (1-2 months)

I haven't worked with this framework before but you should be able to disable a button so that people can't click on it so that they don't get the error page.

Either edit the button tag and add in disabled="disabled" or there is CSS you can add either:

display:none; /* to remove it from view */
visibility:hidden; /* to make it invisible but not remove it */
pointer-events:none; /* to disable the ability to click on it */

You should be target that button specifically and only apply the css to that one button based off an ID, class or attribute. I haven't looked at the page where it is located to give a more precise answer.

Not sure if this is just me. I've been having a weird issue when I've tried logging in for the last few weeks.

Operating System: Windows 7
Browser: Google Chrome v73 - Incognito

Basically I'll sign into the website from the front page and my browser will just spin, but if I refresh the page it registers that I have signed in. It doesn't matter if I wait only a couple seconds or a few minutes so long as I just wait to sign on nothing happens but as soon as I refresh I'll be logged in.

To note the issue doesn't happen on my Android phone within Google Chrome.
