Bill, what version of Android?
My S3 phone works post and edit, no issues. ver. 4.1.2
What happened to the members list?
Bill. That was a feature that was added back in 5.x. It is not part of the 4.x install. As you may have noticed there were issues with that feature.
John, you must be confusing it with something else because that is not correct. It has always been there in v3X. I referenced it frequently and also used it's sorting feature when searching usernames. When v5 came out, I reported a problem about it along with a suggestion. I am not certain if I viewed the members list in v4.2.2 before yesterday evening, but in any event it is not completely gone --it contains only two names now instead of thousands.
I use Dolphin Browser (mini) myself on Android.
Be sure that you don't have any settings in Dolphin checked that clears cookies and data after you quit. I had mine set that way.
I can't get the forum to load at all with Firefox (up to date, with all updates) from the link on the homepage of the AAW site -- for several days it loaded just unformated text without graphics. In the last hour it has started displaying a screen with the message "My site is launching soon" centered and a login button in the upper right (with URL " http://www.aawforum.org/# " ) . When I clicked that Firefox said it was not a trusted connection so I bailed immediately.
The AAW website behaves fine with Firefox, just not the forum.
The site is behaving with MS IE, my 'unfavorite' browser.
I use Dolphin (not mini), and the same situation occurs with or without Jetpack installed. I do not have any setting selected that clears cookies, clear cache, or clears history. I am reluctant to clear the cache on exit, as some things work better when cached.
When I do log in, after entering username and password, and clicking the remember me box, a vBulletin Message box is returned with the message "Invalid Redirect URL (http://aawforum.org/vbforum/index.php)
Perhaps the invalid redirect is a result of cached data pointing to a now nonexistent page. The 'What's New' 'Forum' etc. buttons work to take me to those areas once the "Invalid..." message is displayed.
While not an issue with this site, I use Dolphin with Jetpack for most browsing as it does have the ability to run flash with 4.4.2. (requires a work around)
I'm not getting any behavior like that at all with Firefox. The link from the main Woodturner.org web site should be: www.aawforum.org
It could be a cache issue. Have you tried clearing your browser cache?
Additionally, folks should verify that they bookmark the aforementioned URL and not any subpage on the forums.
Thanks for the reply. I was going to the forum using the link on the AAW website home page, not a bookmark. Just to see, I just now went back and tried getting to the forum in Firefox. Loaded properly. I've done nothing with the cache. I guess it was just one of the electronic things that happens until it doesn't anymore. I hope it continues to work, now that it's decided to work. I much prefer Firefox.
I would like to request changing the way that the quick navigation buttons at the bottom of a rhread functions so that it operates as it did in the previous version of the software. As you know, in v 3.X.X, the larger button showed the current forum and clicking on it opened a drop down list if the user wanted to navigate to a different forum. The small button to the right was labeled "Go". This arrangement enabled the user to return to the forum listing with a single click. Now in v 4.2.2, the Go button is gone and has been replaced by a button labeled, "Top" which navigates to the top of the current page. This means that returning to the forum listing requires extra steps:
I don't know if this could be accomplished using the administrator's control panel or if a programming change would be required. If it requires a programming change, I hope that this request will be considered as I really miss the quicker Quick Navigation that we had prior to the upgrade.
- Click on the drop down list and then select the current forum from the list by clicking on it
- Click on Top and then click on the current forum from the list at the top of the page
- Use the Back button which doesn't update the forum listing page so another click is needed to accomplish that step. If a reply to the thread was made then several clicks of the Back button will be required.
The navigation set-up is hard-coded into the vBulletin software itself.
Additionally, making a navigation change like that would change the navigation set-up for every single user on here, rather than on an individual, per-user basis.
Thanks for your reply, Michael. I suppose that I may be a dinosaur, but I sort of liked the way that it worked in the previous 3.x.x version.
I've just tried it with Dolphin Jetpack on my Droid DNA running Android 4.2.2. I am able to log in just fine and when I exit and return, it will auto-log me in again just fine.
There is a good chance that you'll need to clear your browser cache in order to resolve this issue.
I can't see but the one page of this thread (page 1). If I click the numbered pages or the "last" button, it make no difference - I'm still on the first page...
Well obviously it is something to do with IE 11 since you see the problem on more than one site and everything is OK with Firefox.
I have W7 x64 OS. I normally use FF, but I verified that things are working OK with IE 11. I suggest scrolling to the bottom of the page and verifying that you have the browsing style set to vB4 Default Style and not vB4 Mobile Style. If tht isn't it, you will need to look at your settings in IE 11.
(MS says only do that if IE is unstable)
