    Dearest Pinwheel,

    Can you see a way about spinning wildly the other direction, bitte?

    vBulletin is a militant homosexual network? Do tell.

    Sounds militant, from what you tell me.

    We checked the logs and there were no errors. PHP shows no errors as well.

    In the meantime keep reporting if you encounter any problem. Include error message you get, or just put 'blank page' besides, so we could check further.

    One other location to check would be the Database logs for attempted accesses, although I doubt it would return anything.

    As for the actually "words in titles blocking it", the only other potentially is if there has been a hardware upgrade at the Server hosting location, they might of added new firewall rules that block specific packets being sent (The only way you could test that is if you could create a SSL tunnel on the forum for posting through, whereby the page is encrypted between client and server)

    Edit:
    Just to clarify:
    • It's not a browser issue
    • It's not a bog standard (or vanilla) Vbulletin issue (Tested this on other sites)
    Further Edit:
    "Cache" problem perhaps, where the redundancy network configuration isn't "refreshing" content when it's accessed, this would likely cause this poll problem, doesn't explain the blank page considering that's down to a title input.

    Get ready for the vB update soon. Hopefully, it will fix this bug (and others).

    To be honest Plazma you might want to do a complete clean install of the new VB version.

    What I mean is, lock down the current one to archives, take a SQL backup of it in case you want to populate an archive version later. Only import the tables for the Member Username, Profile and password, and start a new board from scratch.

    You could still allow the posting of archive URL's for adding to discussion topics.

    Doing this would remove a lot of the problems that are otherwise caused with version changes, and the only downfall would be that people would have to accept the migration is only partial. This "Big Bang" implementation would also allow changes in regards to operations here to, perhaps having more open discourse about certain operations (considering lots of people nowadays are wanting transparency more).

    Hopefully, a miracle will occur during the process, and we'll also get video embedding and a few other goodies.

    Like an ignore feature that ignores all trace of the target poster including quotes inside other posters replies.

    My last 3 new posts in Free Thoughts wouldn't go without major changes to the title. This is a real pain in the ass. Can anyone bring us up to date on what's been done to correct this problem if anything? Thanks

    Admin is aware of it. Last I head the cause was unknown.

    Thanks for responding. There's a rumor that the software was going to be updated soon. Just wanted to know if that's true or not? Sometimes a simple update will correct problems even if you never figure out what caused them.

    I'm not sure about the update. That kind of stuff is handled by Plazma Inferno!

    Did you know that the Gates family is suspected to be heavily into the upper branches of secret societies? I smell conspiracy.

    Video embedding would be a bad idea. On a smaller site with less than 100 regular posters, sure. Here? Yikes. What a nightmare.

    Being able to post a combination of text and pictures with a single drag and drop would be a big help.

    Brief Notes

    The system is confusing the poll (pollid) and thread (t) numbers. When people redirect in this glitch, they are seeing the thread that matches the poll number. I don't know the specific terminology, but that seems, to my Rube Goldberg mind, more a conditional path issue—some variable is causing the system to occasionally follow a dead-end path.

    With the "blank page" issue, I've noticed that my browser (Safari 4.1.3 on OSX 10.4.11) hangs on the do= URL with a subforum (f) number. I'll try to record it the next time it comes up.

    You can drag 'n drop text right now. It's just the images that won't copy.
    But, I guess that was your point.. Never mind

    Some of the best jokes I have are a combination of pictures and text in an email. Also got some very nice Powerpoint files which would be nice to share.

    Yep, that's the one. When it happens to you, make a note about it in your post and type in the original title of your post also, because you will have to change your title to get the post to take. I find that removing words works best, but feel free to try other modifications.
