    Default Server Updates

    I will be performing a series of updates over the weekend. There may be times I have to close the forums.

    Looks like we need to update some vBulletin stuff as well. I will try and get to that tomorrow. Time for bed tonight.

    Don' t know if related but on my mobile phone, therd's a big black space on top of the page each time I'm opening a thread. By zooming on it, it seems that there's lines if code hidden behind it. Doesn't happen on forums' pages.
    I'm not at home and can't say if it appears on PC as well.

    It's happening in PC browsers as well, not just mobiles.


    Sometimes there are 1-3 lines, sometimes it loads okay. Gotta be something pending with the rest of the vB updates.

    It has broken the reply box as well, where the toolbar is all merged with the reply box:


    The quick edit and stuff that saves the response without reloading the page is also messed up and unresponsive. It saves but you have to reload in order to see the altered post.

    I'm getting three lines with the error message at the top of the screen, too.

    On the forum home page, the same error message appears under the heading 'Latest posts'.

    Also, when I clicked on Edit Post (on one of my own posts), nothing happened - no text box appeared.

    I get this error.

    Warning: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in ..../includes/class_block.php on line 442

    Note, I got that error when logging in.



    EDIT: When I submitted my post I got a message saying that I need to wait 20 seconds before posting. WTF! This is my first post this session, so something is definitely wrong. Now I get this error.

    Warning: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in ..../includes/class_bbcode.php on line 2958



    @mishkin: It is not hard to edit a post, just click on the "Go Advanced" button and everything seems to be working.

    I can edit a post while I'm typing it. After I've posted it, if I click on Edit Post, my cursor turns into a blue circle which goes round and round - and nothing happens until I reload the page. This means that I can't get to 'Go Advanced' after a post has been posted.

    It looks like you can edit your posts, but I can't edit mine. Maybe we're using different browsers (I'm on Firefox or devices (I'm using a PC)?

    I guess php was upgraded from 5.x to 7. php 7 throws a 'warning' level error using the preg_replace function with the \e modifier

    for reference http://php.net/manual/en/function.preg-replace.php

    Has someone noticed less page loading times now? It loads much faster than before.

    Yeah. GED mentions above that some vB features still remains to be updated as well. So we just have to wait for the 2nd update whenever he's online and able.

    When replying to a PM the usual quote of the original PM is missing.

    And yes, page generation is fast, roughly half the usual time (0.8 sec versus 1.7 for me)

    If you can get that 'Go Advanced' thing to work, the problem is solved(ish*) - if not, I think this is a fairly sustainable, though clunky solution.

    Copy out post contents, no, it probably won't save formatting. The method retains nothing in the current post.

    Right click edit link, open in new window, and you have a functional edit page. Paste back in, edit as needed, save and it should work just fine.
