@Variola:  If you thought the last typo was FOG worthy, then check out this one:

White bread and the wonder of enzymes

"Take half a slice of bread and chew it and chew it and chew it! Even if the bread becomes disgusting, you should still keep chewing amd remember - don't swallow or you'll spoil the experiment!"

I do realize that typos may be of much smaller priority than Bug Fixes or other enhancements, but I thought I'd just point it out anyway.

Every question deserves a naked answer.

You are really getting in the FOG mood aren't you DrC  [;D]

I'm still baffled as to why the biography on user profiles reads in a strange way.


Amd.....that's my sort of typo!!! One I would often be caught doing. Hence I get fogged into oblivion on here!

I think I should give myself a surname. DrChemistryFOG. Sounds good to me [:)]

I checked what could cause the weird biography and I think it happens because of the following reason:

The Text Area allows you to make newlines, however when it is inserted into the database it only recognizes text (probably because of the settings of the table in the database. If that is the case changing TEXT to VARCHAR [talking from a MySQL point of view] might do the trick. I can check that once I find time to do it), and hence the breaklines are turned into the text version of that very tag. The profile page can only display text and not html tags, it therefore posts the message just directly from the database without recognizing the html code. The biography should be stripped for html tags and then replaced with tags that would work in that very system.

That could be the problem, although I fear it is not that simple. That is my best guess without having a look at the code. But I think we can leave that for the Admins [:)]

I told you my English could be awkward sometimes [;)]

So do I. But by the way, just for reference, did this problem occur recently, or has it always been like that?

Where exactly do you live? and who is your ISP? The images get destroyed after you look at them, so it could be something very strange about how your ISP is working.

As some people may know I have quite literally been driven to distraction because I receive this ALL THE TIME !!


[attachment=15015]

and ONLY on this website !!.....I can't even post this post without having to leave it and try again after ten minutes !!.......it's either a router issue, a PC issue or a ISP issue and each one keeps blaming the other..

So......at great cost (and to show dedication)..I have decided to move ISP's where I will receive a new router and much higher speeds !...All in the name of TNS !

How's that for commitment ! ?

Is it possible to prohibit "newbies" from posting hyperlinks?

It is important to reference material and sources...  but, what about only allowing users to do so after say...  5 or 10 posts?

For the Newbies, also prohibit using words like http, https, com, www, dot, etc.

Of course, it could backfire and cause determined individuals to fill up the site with multiple posts of garbage  [xx(]  But, with any luck, it might discourage some of the spammers.

Now, that's odd.

Click on "My Posts" in white, under NAKED SCIENCE FORUM header and it takes you to a couple of pages of recent posts.

In black, there is a sub-header:
The Naked Science Forum - My Posts

Click on "My Posts" again in this second level (BLACK) header, and it takes you to "Recent Topics" instead of refreshing the "My Posts" page.

However, this is a chronological "Recent Topics" list, which is actually kind of a good format, perhaps easier to use than the "Recent Topics" arranged by category.

I'm not sure how it got on the list....  should the site be blocked?

For some reason, today I am having a lot of problems opening the page:

http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/

Which in many cases is the main shortcut to the forum.  It is in the hyperlinks on the left side of the page.
I see a perpetual busy symbol, with nothing happening.  It doesn't refresh, but doesn't see to time-out either.

However...

I can open most other pages just fine, as well as:

http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php

Which takes me to where the above link should take me.

Maybe it was this then, the upcoming hardware failure that crashed out tries to connect? Or is it something totally unrelated, as in the software?

But it's been so for several months although lately it was worse. I first thought it had to do with TNS going through itself, cleaning up so to speak, but I don't know?

There still seems to be some problems posting on the forum.

I have posted this logged in through IE.

Smiley faces don't seem to work and posting a picture from my own files can only be done by using alt+s on the keyboard. This results in the post being submited, rather than the picture being added to the post. If I then go to 'Modify post', I can only post modifications before the picture, not after.

Take this shot of my recent adventure into the skies:

EDIT
Strewth! Now I can't even see that! What's more this edit will doubless come before where the pic should have been.

So now, I will try the same post, this time logged in through Firefox.


EDIT AGAIN
Ah! The picture just appeared, but I can still only get that small pic shown off the attachment, not the picture in the body of the post.

OK, here goes again, this time with Firefox.

Right, here I am again, this time using Firefox.

First off, is it me or the forum running very slow? I am having no problems loading pages on other sites, but TNS is very slow.

OK, so back to the original problem.

I'll just cut and paste the text of my previous post and try the smilies and picture attachment in the normal way.



There still seems to be some problems posting on the forum.

I have posted this logged in through IE Firefox.

Smiley faces don't seem to work and posting a picture from my own files can only be done by using alt+s on the keyboard. This results in the post being submited, rather than the picture being added to the post. If I then go to 'Modify post', I can only post modifications before the picture, not after.

Take this shot of my recent adventure into the skies:

[attachment=16086]

EDIT

Again, I could only upload the picture by using shift+alt+s on the keyboard, which submitted the post, not, as used to be the case, insert the picture at the designated position. All I see is the attachment at the bottom of the post, and this edit will come before that.

Now for a smiley picked from the forum's own listed smilies:  >:(

Somehow I get the feeling that only the code >:( (I just typed that in) will appear. Lets see.....

Sorry Don we are working it.   

There are work arounds, but they are fairly tedious [ 8D]  - I thought square brackets, but obviously not

If you remove the space between  [ and 8 ... [8D]

I though my computer screen had a mark on it, but it's on your photo Don.

Nice protip there.  [;D] - hopefully I got it this time.

Were you flying or just along for the ride Don?

There ain'ta no sanity clause, and there ain'ta no centrifugal force ćther.

The square brackets do prevent accidentally creating an emoticon, e.g.

without the brackets " (score 8) " could appear as  " (score [8)] ".

I was indeed at the wheel, or joystick I should say. Hmmm, the term 'joystick' has some rather suggestive connotations, perhaps I should just say, I was flying the plane.

"Preview post" isn't working the last few days : it gets stuck ...

e.g. whilst logged in , go to the advanced post editor here ...
http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?board=3;action=post2
then click on "preview" ...

"Fetching preview..." is displayed , but the actual preview never arrives,
( i.e. it gets stuck on "Fetching preview..." ).

Maybe this fault is specific to me ?

[ BTW whilst on the advanced post editor page the characters "array()" appear in the top left corner of the screen,
and  if the browser is refreshed on that page, the screen monetarily goes white,  it didn't used to do that ]
