    Yep, that's exactly what I have been doing, but since this morning it just fails to log me out.
    No great problem as far as I am personally concerned, but other users are going to get the idea i'm here when I am not.
    thanks,

    it appears that the 4 alerts i received was for passing "milestones" related to the number of posts i have.
    i received a 5th alert when you quoted my post.

    If that's the case you'll have to delete the cookie from your browser session.

    In Firefox that's Right click, "View Page Info" select "Security" from the tabs and then "View Cookies" from there you can chose to remove them. Doing so will mean that when you view the page again you'll appear logged out and when you attempt to log back in, it will reissue a new session.

    Have you checked from a browser that doesn't have the cookie set by the board? Is your login on your default browser set to remember your status?

    I guess you have tried to log out, but with the JavaScript errors and other beasts, that could be nasty.

    Has anyone gotten any odd http errors, like 500: internal server error?

    Edit: Still getting the JavaScript redirect error, btw. Have y'all got a ../foo when you should have a /foo thing going on here?

    I think it's more likely a /FUBAR

    From what I can work out it's to do with how JQuery is suppose to create an overlay, it's not creating it properly so when it comes to having that overlay populated it throws out the error.
    I'm not entirely sure if it's down to the magic of URL rewrites nerfing a file that it needs access to, or if it's just down to position of JS files within the webpage (Javascript use to be dependent on Cascading libraries before Event functions or you'd call null values, I'm not sure if that is still the case considering modern browsers and how they handle DCOM)

    Oh, God.

    JQuery (can be) is a PITA. I try to get everything loaded in the head, but that's not always under your control when you use someone's commercial package. Have y'all gotten good tech support from xenForo?

    Yep, it will also keep giving the impression each time thereafter when the avatar is changed to another that it didn't save when it actually did.

    I keep getting a popup that says: Javascript error. I guess that issue is known though, and i am on chrome. Cannot edit posts either.

    The main font on the main page is too round and doesnt math the font in the threads either. That is odd. Overall the design looks spiffy. I like the "like" option, have to see what htat entails.

    It'll take some time to tighten up.

    Oh, if you click "more options" you open a nice text formatter.

    The old youtube links are broken, small consolation though.

    Oh, here is something to look into: Cannot cut and paste in the extended text formatter. Have not tried other key combinations, is it on my end?

    My golly, you guys have your work cut out for you!
    Suggestion:
    Maybe pass the hat around to help pay for a XenFora specialist to come online and help set this software up. (get a quote first but it shouldn't be that much)

    Appears cookies may not be loading properly...(Most of the problems seem to be associated with a lack of browser cookie function; I'm, using FireFox)

    It is much better, however bugs 'remain. I keep getting java errors whenever I click on alerts.

    I don't think it's cookies. I just did a debug with this site versus Xenforo's own and the difference suggests that there is an error in how various information is being parsed. Where it's suppose to be application/json it's being parsed as text/html. This means where Jquery code is suppose to execute it's not being placed into the same stack and therefore inaccessible from one another, which causes the Console Error.

    Given that we can presume that XenFora is normally quite functional perhaps it is how the Sciforums server is configured that may be generating the bulk of the issues?

    I'd assume it's just a missing handler.

    or from within the php
    PHP:
    <?php
    header
    ('Content-Type: application/json');
    ...

    From my own naive perspective often it is in the servers php.ini file set up (I think...) Certainly that is where I would start to look and make sure that the php.ini file settings are compatible. Iam sure the fora software would normally function better than this out of the box.

    Could be that the php version is not adequate or buggy too I guess...
