2 October  SMF updated to 2.0.12 OK

There appear to be some problems with this update of SMF.  The upper Navigation Bar which appears on the Index page disappears to a brown dot on other pages amking navigation around the site rather difficult.  Right now I am kludging it by using the Back button to go back to the index page to find the Nav Bar.

SMF Top Menu Bar Issues
« Reply #4 on: October 04, 2016, 09:09:00 AM »
The recent update to SMF seems to have messed up the top menu bar of the Diner Forum.  It appears as a Brown Dot rather than as all the navigation links, at least in the Firefox Browser.

However, it is still working properly in the Microsoft Edge browser and the Android browser on smart phones.

Until we get it fixed, I suggest using these browsers for posting on the Diner.

It's screwed up using Chrome, too, fwiw.

The Brown Dot of Death
« Reply #6 on: October 04, 2016, 05:44:51 PM »
I am now getting the "Brown Dot of Death" on the Microsoft Edge Browser as well as Firefox, and Eddie reported it is occuring on Google Chrome also.  So it is ot restricted to Firefox.  I am doing work arounds by entering the actual URLs for the pages I wish to access.  Most of them are stored in my history file fortunately.

This is a major pain in the ass.  We need to roll back to the previous version of SMF ASAP.

I suggest you keep the tabs open, so as not to lose them.
I don't know how to do a rollback - I'm getting round to finding out, but not ASAP.

I am not worried about me.  I can find all the links from the URLs.  It's everybody else who depends on the nav bar that I am worried about.

For anybody still stuck without the nav bar, here are where the buttons point to:

Calendar https://www.doomsteaddiner.net/forum/index.php?action=calendar
DD-blog http://www.doomsteaddiner.net/blog/

So the only one that doesn't work is Logout, unless you know what your session token is.  I think this is held in a cookie under Site = doomsteaddiner.net , Cookie Name = SMFCookie288.

This is helpful, but it would be nice if we could get the fucking Nav Bar back instead of the Brown Dot of Death.  ::)

FWIW I have created a nav bar at http://doomsteaddiner.net/palloy/navbar.htm

The problem with the proper nav bar is being fixed and SMF 2.0.13 will be out "soon" to fix it.

My nav bar doesn't have "Logout" on it because that function requires the value that is held in a cookie on your computer that you were given when you logged in for the current session.  I think if you delete that cookie it is the same as logging out.  It belongs to "doomsteaddiner.net" and is called "SMFCookie288".

To access your cookies in Firefox for Windows, first click on Tools > Options > .  For Firefox for Linux, Edit > Preferences >  . Then click on Privacy > Remove individual cookies > .  Scan the list for "doomsteaddiner.net" and click on the expand arrow.  Then highlight SMFCookie288 and click Remove.

Other browsers will have something similar.

I'll work on getting Clean Talk running again for the Blog commentary and see if it cures the Spam problem there.
