Forum Logging out problem - Update

by Skalor on Sun Nov 16, 2014, 5:40pm

Hey all forum users!

As you might have noticed there's some problems with the forum at the moment such as getting logged repeatedly. I'm working on fixing this asap.

Edit - Update: Ok I've made some changes which should make logging out less likely now.

Here are some things you can do which should help even more:

Make sure you use the bookmark http://theavamovement.com/forum/index.php rather then theavamovement.com or forum.theavamovement.com as these ones are likely to log you out I've realised.

Refreshing your browser cookies/cache might also help.

Hope you guys like the new forum header! Any further suggestions welcome.

Tomorrow, we're going to be sending, to each and everyone of you, a blue scale rainbow into your hearts and fill it with love. Lots and lots of love.

A blue/black shade of love?

Header looks nice n' all, but (as you mentioned before) the line in the middle is making me twitch a little. The "content portal" link takes you straight to the old AVAMovement website, I'm assuming it was supposed to go to a download page for the all wallpapers, mp3's etc.? I'm also assuming the blue text on "latest forum posts" is supposed to highlight the text instead of making just that one link blue?

Looks nice though. I appreciate that it's not easy to make live edits whilst the website is still up, just thought I'd point those things out in case you hadn't noticed yourself.

I think I found the problem with the logging out. Since changing the forum url from forum.theavamovement.com to theavamovement.com I realised I hadn't changed the forum's cookie settings to reflect this change. Now this is done things might start to improve. People might need to refresh their browser cookies/cache or it might just take a little time. Fingers crossed!

StephenCWJ wrote:Header looks nice n' all, but (as you mentioned before) the line in the middle is making me twitch a little.

Fixed now. There was some coding I needed to figure out how to fix. I hope you wouldn't think I would do that intentionally!

StephenCWJ wrote:The "content portal" link takes you straight to the old AVAMovement website, I'm assuming it was supposed to go to a download page for the all wallpapers, mp3's etc.?

It's taking you to the page I intended. But in the future I might change the old site to have a different homepage which isn't news. Any suggestions on this would be great!?

Don't know what you're saying here exactly, but I'll explain why it's blue. I've made this option stand out the most because it's the most essential and useful on the forum, I wanted to draw attention to it. I've just made it slightly less blue now because it was hard to read on several backgrounds. What do you think of it now?

With the "content portal" link, I'd just change the old website to a single page or master page (with sub links to the different categories) so that you're not sending a potential new confused user to a website they've never seen before. If you're not using the old website, might as well. Can always save the coding for the old website as a back up.

To me, the blue font sort of seems like a highlight text. As in when you would hover over a link and it would turn a different colour to indicate that you can click on the link. I just initially thought that it had stuck to the new forum post link. But I understand what you're going for now! :)

If you ever need a hand (which I doubt, seems you have it under control), give me a shout!

I don't know if that is the problem, but it hasn't fixed it for me :( Then again, I've been having it for over 2 years so I don't know.

The moon you felt, it has no side, that's dark like hell, or safe from light...

I think one thing which helps if you bookmark http://theavamovement.com/forum/index.php rather then theavamovement.com or forum.theavamovement.com. They are likely to log you out I've realised.
