Yep, sometimes I turn on WordPress debugging, which displays a list of all the errors. If you see them don't worry, it's just temporary while I'm working out what's causing the snafu.

@joe2 

Hurrah! It seems to work now. Note to self: changed 

preg_match_all('/\B@([\w-\.]+)\b/', $content, $matches);

to

preg_match_all('/\B@([\w\-\.]+)\b/', $content, $matches);

…based on the advice in this thread. Obvious really.

Now singing this to myself (NSFW), until the next thing breaks:

Because hubris is getting the better of me, I'm going to try to debug some other stuff. Don't be alarmed if you see other errors strewn across the page for a while.

Don't know if anyone else is getting this but instead of the default back of George's head avatar I'm getting this:

If not just me, where'd the back of George's head go?

Yes, sorry, that's a default WordPress image for their gravatar service (globally-recognised avatars, I think). I'm trying various things to speed up the site, including image optimisation, but something is switching those images to the default. I'm working on it.

Doesn’t it show that you’re logged in for several minutes even after you’re logged out? IIRC when I first joined that’s why everyone thought I lived here because I checked in every few minutes so it showed me as being logged in all the time. I could be wrong though.

You may be right, @50yearslate, but I've never seen myself showing as logged in after logging out in almost 7 years here.

And everybody thought you lived here because you do. ahdn_john_08_gifa-hard-days-night-george-10john-lennon-salute_gif

Lol, fair enough. I just remember a couple times when I went to log in and it already showed my name at the bottom.

I've seen that multiple times.  I stay logged in on my computer and my phone, so occasionally I'll see that happen.  You just log back in.

I've been trying to post in the Things We Learned Today thread for the past half an hour but all I'm getting is a 500 Internal Server Error once I press the submit button

Yet oddly enough I can post in any other thread (such as this one)

 

Edit: and now my post seems to have gone through.

As an aside the forum has been terribly slow in the last few years

Out of all of those, Preview button should be added back. Since you can't delete posts, you can't really check see if your post has correct formatting before people see it.

 

Editing isn't as effective since people can see and comment on the failed post which can derail conversation or derail PMs.

Well I, for example, make it a point to point out every mistake that anybody makes and cause a large discussion to form from the mistake.  This is because I make no mistakes and everyone should be more like me.ahdn_john_08_gif

I suppose. That's good fun though! As the proud winner of the Most Likely To Derail A Conversation award (may not be exact name) I support derailment and extoll its virtues. 

 

Speaking of which, I do wish Walry would come back to the forum a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I noticed that YouTube links are not displaying properly. Previously they appeared as the first image of the video (like on YouTube), but now they are just creating a large blank space and the link is invisible until you point at it. If this is permanent maybe we should all agree to place the links in a spoiler because the current posts look awful ahdn_paul_01.
