Problems[edit]

Looks like some of the CSS is missing (eg, table.infoBox). Taking a look... Nicjansma 15:19, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
The problem is that common.css is not included in the template pages for some reason. Once this is fixed the templates should display correctly. --Ebakunin 17:53, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
I believe this is fixed now. note:: I'm going to merge what's in common.css (a wiki page) changes into the main.css (a static page) soon. Nicjansma 18:40, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
I still don't see it as fixed. I refreshed my cache and restarted the browser. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 19:03, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Working great for me. Thanks so much Nic! --Ebakunin 19:06, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Revanche, are you using the non-AdSense template (Sarna as opposed to SarnaAds)? If so, I had only fixed the AdSense template before, now I've also fixed the Sarna template as well. Let me know if you see any other problems Nicjansma 19:52, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Concur. I must have been testing during the non-AdSense upgrade. Works keenly now. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 20:13, 1 July 2009 (UTC)


  • Editing option shortcuts are duplicated. Ex: Edit any page and notice that following the horizontal line shortcut, the shortcuts repeat. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 11:24, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Seems to have corrected. Anyone else see duplicate edit shortcuts? --Revanche (talk|contribs) 12:00, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
And the duplication is back again (for me, anyway). --Revanche (talk|contribs) 15:01, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
After updating the template we were using from v1.11.0 to v1.15.50, I don't see this any more. Let me know if you still see it. Nicjansma 18:40, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Concur; no duplication. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 19:03, 1 July 2009 (UTC)


  • Preference tabs (under "my preferences") are duplicated (in two levels). --Revanche (talk|contribs) 12:00, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

  • Categories are listed in a box within a box. --Scaletail 15:57, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Scaletail, you you provide an example? i don't see what you're reporting? --Revanche (talk|contribs) 16:00, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
On every page that is in a category, the list of categories is in a box in a box. There is normally only one box. --Scaletail 17:29, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Got it; thanks. Ex: SRM Carrier --Revanche (talk|contribs) 17:46, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

I still see the two boxes. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 19:03, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Let me know, if after the Sarna template was updated, if you still have this problem. Nicjansma 19:52, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Issue clear from my POV. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 20:13, 1 July 2009 (UTC)


Should be working now? Nicjansma 19:50, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Works. Thank you! --Revanche (talk|contribs) 20:13, 1 July 2009 (UTC)


Updated! Let me know of any other extensions that need to be updated. Nicjansma 03:28, 2 July 2009 (UTC)


  • Very minor issue: when sending e-mails thru the site, when 'E-mail me a copy of my message' is checked, no such e-mail is received (at least by me). Unsure if its related to the upgrade or not.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 00:20, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
It worked fine for me, at least as of 2 days ago (when Ebakunin was made Admin). Frabby 00:24, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
And you're the one suffering email server problems.....hmmmm.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 00:35, 11 July 2009 (UTC)


  • Spamming: its on the rise again (starting before the upgrade) and I feel its automation capable of breaking the current math-based captcha. We've already had 2 today, and I believe 3 yesterday, in spite of bans on IPs. Our current version is r36959; I suspect there may be a later version. However, I'd prefer to install reCAPTCHA, which would be harder to defeat (since it is image-based) and would also assist in the old book digitization program. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 18:42, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
