Technical support and bug reports

Hi CC , I just experimented with one post in Glenmullems' thread , and we can delete the post or the content , but the attachment is still there.

 

Try going to your "My Media" section and deleting them from there.

Hi TechGal Fresh,

 

Thanks for trying.  I did find My Media but there is no delete there.  However, I went to My Settings > Manage Attachments (to the left) and you can select which one/s you want to delete.

 

Not sure about the Glenmullen ones which have been included in Post # 1.  I assume Alto has them saved herself.  Cheers.  CC

Hello

 

I am sorry to have to post as a new topic  but no one sees what I have written on my original introduction.

 

But I am getting individual messages from surviving Antidepressants in my private email address.  This has never happened before and now since yesterday I have received 4 or 5 individual posts there coming directly from here because they are posted here too.

 

Is this something new?  I tried to answer them but they will not go through - saying error....Can someone please tell me if they are getting these too - or is this something new now.

 

Thank you

Lee

Is it messages from members or notifications? Not sure what is happening there but if you go to your settings you can turn off email  notifications. Hope that sorts it out for you. I'll move this to technical support so others can see it if it becomes a problem for them.

divalee: I posted a possible solution in your intro thread. Here's a link to my post.

 

It's possible that you inadvertently hit a "follow this thread" or "follow this forum" button. I occasionally find myself on a web page or getting messages I didn't expect for that reason -- fingers faster than I'm thinking!

I generally get a lock box saying this site is secure today I have an i in a circle saying it is not secure the source seems to be google analytics and paypal... best I can discern... 

 

what does it mean?

It doesn't mean anything. The site is secure. The link to PayPal is secure.

Just a note for mods or administration: 

 

So.....the posting difficulty occurred during editing.  I was able to sign off and then on again and it seemed to clear and I could edit as I wished.  Also when signing on I am getting a new warning as far as site security goes.  Not sure what all this means or nothing.

It worked out well for me though as I am finding myself WANTING to spend more time writing on paper and less with internet.......or perhaps get more disciplined somehow in my own life and with online usage.  Alas though.......a slight worry as far as the site being hacked or something or maybe just my own online interactions.  Sa la vie......live and let live I think........but I best work on my printer soon and print some of my own stuff off........just in case.

 

Love, peace, healing,

manymoretodays, what kind of problem posting did you have?

I was editing and then just couldn't.  No strange scripts showed up or anything........it appeared I had lost my post(the one I was editing).  Then when I signed out and then back in......voila......my post was back and intact.

 

The very tiny techno portion of my brain thought maybe it was just a busy site at the time(I can't confirm this though).  It happened once before when a mod was moving one of my posts at the same time I was posting it.......the difficulties while editing the same post that was being moved.  That time the mod msg ed me.  So perhaps a mod was reviewing it??......something like that?

 

Tiny techno portion of my brain seems to be growing a bit too.

 

Sooooo......I don't know......maybe not a problem at all?

 

Thanks Alto and all of you mods.   For all you do!!!  Without a doubt I could not have gotten where I am, this far, without you!!

 

Best,

It was my post on the string started by january eve which was above the one that got moved here.  Thanks.

I posted a message in a forum, no problem.

 

Then I read some more, wrote another reply, tried to post, and it said something about my security code being wrong. It worked for the first post! Why was I signed out when I did not sign myself out between my two posts?

 

Then I lost my post! which took quite a bit of work to compose.

 

Why is this happening? Is it necessary to make posts disappear like this? Very disheartening.

When you login you need to tick the box next to "remember me."

Some members have commented that this site does not use the secure protocol, "https."

As of the time of this post, Alto is investigating whether this is possible to do at a price we are willing to pay.

HOW DO I KNOW THAT A SITE IS USING HTTPS?

When a site is using HTTPS, you will see an icon that looks like a padlock in the address bar of your browser.

 

WHAT DOES HTTPS DO?

 

When a site uses https, the communication between your computer and the site's web server are encrypted. This makes it very difficult for others using the same network as you, say at a library or coffee shop or even at home, to see what you are communicating. A hacker or snoop could detect that you are exchanging data or communicating, but not the details.

 

HOW DO I GET SECURE PROTECTION, HTTPS, BEFORE YOU SET IT UP OR IF YOU CAN'T?

You can force a secure connection, HTTPS, by using a browser extension. The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a non-profit advocate and protector of online civil liberties, has developed an extension to force HTTPS for these browsers:

  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome
  • Opera

If you are using one of these browsers, clicking on the link below to be directed to the extension for your browser:
EFF's HTTPS Everywhere extension for your browser
 

---Phones & Tablets---

 

If you are using an Android phone, you can download Firefox for Android with the extension pre-installed at this link on the EFF site.

If you are using an iOS (Apple) phone or tablet, download Firefox or Android from the app store and then search for the "HTTPS Everywhere" extension through the browser itself.

 


If you require support to do this, please use your favourite search engine. Many helpful people have posted instructions  on their blogs; your search will likely yield youtube videos.

 

Please do NOT ask for individual technical support with this issue without trying the suggestions above. There are too many combinations of operating system, browser, and internet connection. Assisting with those kinds of issues is beyond my knowledge and competence.

 


update 13 June 2017:

The forum software upgrade will allow us to set up HTTPS connections. It has not yet be implemented.

 

Thank you in advance for your patience.

Unless I am missing something it appears to me that posts in a thread are now with this new system no longer numbered.

 

Is there a way to bring this back as it is a good way to navigate a thread quickly...sometimes I could find a post in my intro by remembering the number. This was very helpful when confronted with 29 pages say.

Good point, nz. It is indeed unaccountable why the post numbering feature has been removed. I have asked for information from software support.

 

Let me say that this software company is interested in making its forums more "Facebook-like"; that is, fast-food posts that no one would look back on. I have objected to this philosophy, I believe forums are a different medium than Facebook, posts have more permanence, discussions go on longer, and it's more of a long-form medium.

Sorry, the numbering of posts feature has been removed from the software, no explanation given by the developers.

Yah.  Too bad.  Did notice.  The FB esque?  Hot, hot, hot feature box if a post gets bunches of responses.  Ugh.  IMHO.  Or I agree with that objection Alto.

I try to keep my pms to a minimum but even then one can still receive them 

I noticed that the drug sig of the person who sent you a pm doesn't appear to show  ...?

This would be helpful to see. No pressure just an observation and thought. Maybe its another glitch type thing. not something that can be flagged on or off.

 

Okay thanks also Alto for commenting about the numbering of the posts I put this thanks here cos it seems I cant respond in the said thread.

 

Any one get 'inspect the element' when they copy an paste ?? maybe that's a problem my end.

Having difficulties updating my signature today.  Whenever I go to the signature screen it "shivers".  I wonder if the site has finally succumbed and has akathisia?  No problem with other pages.

Just noticed thereis an ignore flag

i wonder if this is the reason for not numbering posts else someone would see a jump in the numbering and then be reminded of someone they don’t want to be reminded off so this way it helps keep that person in one place only and not the second place...their head. Just a thought.

i only discovered this cos I pushed the wrong flag when I went to sign out.

 

How come we can’t add to threads in this area?..

I've managed to update my signature using my laptop.

Well this is really weird.  I've just gone to my signature on my desktop computer and it is still "shivering".  It worked okay earlier this month on this computer because I updated my signature.  It is the only place that does it anywhere on the web.  Not going to lose any sleep over it though.  It's no big deal, but it is reported just in case any other members happened to get the same issue.

No, the software provider removed the numbering in a redesign. I don't know the reason for it. It wasn't a good idea.

 

You can't add to some threads here so we can keep informational items compact and easy to browse for newcomers.

 

Aren't you able to post in this thread?

I've never seen "inspect the element." I get a banner asking if I want to paste as rich text or no.

 

The lack of signatures in messages is another software design choice, I have no control over it.

That is correct.

 

This is what i see at the bottom ..no place to post.

Might want to check with others perhaps its just my computer. But to post a response in this thread i have to start a new topic.

Was that always true? Is it the case from browser to browser?

 

I suggest you clear your browser cache of survivingantidepressant.org cookies, it's probably a browser thing.

nz, I have to apologize. Somehow the settings for the Read It First forum got changed, with members not permitted to post in topics.

 

I have changed it to members are permitted to post in topics. Please note, however, that some topics are locked and can be updated only by staff.

Account help?

How do I delete an attachment so I can use my attachment space better? I have a picture in my attachments that is taking up all my space.

Thank you!
