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.

Also, if any tech wizards can help me debug the above, please get in touch.

Line 18 in the file reads:

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

@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

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!
