Just an FYI, the following are a couple of issues I've noticed and experienced in the last couple of days on the RDI side of things ...

- Posts that include multiple links show up as blank posts on the boards. If you delete the links/HTML, they post fine.

- Profile pics (portraits and avatars) have disappeared on some newer member profiles. Not sure why.

Just thought someone might want to know.

Thanks!

Some posts and profiles display strange characters instead of normal text. Not all text seems affected. The issue is retroactive and seems to affect old posts. I assume it has something to do with text being copy and pasted from outside RDI, such as when a post is written on Google Docs and then posted.

Is there a fix underway for the quotation mess ups on the forums? The problem has also hit at least one screen name.

Edit: I've been told that the problem has been fixed with newer posts. Do we have to go back and edit older posts manually?

It's almost certainly a conversion problem, going from the older MySQL database to the new one which is a different product.

As Collie mentioned elsewhere, they saw this before on ME and ended up having to repair their posts manually.

We're looking to see if it is possible to do it on the back end via a script, but I can't promise anything - especially if doing so might cause further problems.

EDIT: I've gone through and fixed it for the folders themselves - a number of folder descriptions and at least one folder title had these issues, they're all corrected now.

Just to let the admin know, the inventory items seems to be gone now too. The images are broken so they don't show in profiles but are there, description wise, when you click on the word inventory in the profile itself.

We have problems with the inventory tool and we are still working on it. The images missing is a side effect of the work being done.

Thank you for working on that! <3 I'll save my Beltane stuff to give out for a while Smile

Thank you all for your continued patience. I am working to resolve all these issues in a permanent fashion. That takes longer than a quick hack.
