There's something wrong with this forum...
« on: June 10, 2009, 11:47:22 pm »

Some parts of the forum don't seem to work as they should.  Undecided  If I click the "new" button beside a topic, it takes me to the first page rather than the first unread post, and when I click the "Quote" button beside a post, I get an error: "An Error Has Occurred! Unable to load the 'quotefast' template."

Is this fixable somehow? Undecided

I don't know where the "new" button problem comes from. The quoting problem is likely a problem with the template. It's been on my todo list for a long time to fix that. As a workaround, don't use the "quote" button when the "Quick Reply" is open.

Try mark all as read.  I think it'll take you to the first unread message otherwise.  (I may be thinking of phpBB though).

At least for me, clicking that button gives me this message:

An Error Has Occurred!

Er, actually me too.  Should probably have checked that first...

This may all have to do with the template (skin). I used it mostly unmodified from the one from SMF's predecessor's YaBB. I should really start over and recreate the template from scratch. I don't have the time to do that though, but if anyone wishes to give it a shot, they are welcome to.
Though when SMF 2.0 comes out of Beta, we'll probably switch to that anyhow.

From the topic title I expected the thread to either be a complaint about the forum, or a post in the spirit of "Dark Forces are gathering, I can feel their malice in the bones!". I really didn't expect tech issues.  Tongue

P.S - I know the post is totally unhelpful for the thread, but it looks like the original purpose of it has been achived.

Well, it hasn't exactly been achieved, but the problem has been acknowledged, meaning that there's a good chance of a fix appearing eventually.


...Dark Forces gathering? What on earth has that to do with the topic title?

I use the old SMF skin (the one that used to be the SCDB default); it works perfectly. The default skin on the other hand has the problems you mention.
