Security Patches / Website Down Time
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:26:24 PM »
Hello everyone!


Just a heads up, I'm sure most of you have noticed the website down time.


This was due to some borked security patches and PHP issues.  The website is semi-back up.  We didn't lose anything so no worries.  There are some elements that need to be fixed.  I'm working on those now.

Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera can’t display the forum on windows 10.

IPad Safari can.

No messages, just a blank page.

Apparently it is an error in the php.ini settings.

1. Enable display_errors in your php.ini
2. Review your error_log file(s).

I'm typing this on chrome right now, but I am having an issue if I try to load it up on Edge. I tried loading it on edge to test it...

Strange though.

I haven’t touched anything on the back end since the 15th.

I’m trying to work it out now.

SUMMARY:

Right, so I had to basically remove all of the modifications on the website to get things rolling again. 
Between the update and several mods that were designed for older versions, things just weren't playing nice together.  I am working on piecing the site back together little by little. 

As far your avatars, I'm pretty sure those are toast.  Avatars are really not that important though.  I will attempt to restore them, but for the time being, we are back online!

"Recent Posts" link seems to be down.

I'm using the latest Chrome browser.

This is the error I get:
