Server Update

Post by AnthonyCole » Sun Mar 04, 2018 13:17 pm

Hello everyone!

The server's OS, the software, and the website components have all been updated.

The forum's style had to be adapted, because our base style (subsilver2) is no longer a standard style.
Some places still have the old style, like User Settings and PMs. They might be adapted later. They should work and be readable though.

The new logo, icons and some other things are made by Feivelyn.

If you find major bugs like weird colors / barely readable text report it and I might fix them.

Sorry for the downtime, enjoy again.

(Hopefully without crashes this time? Onwards to another 5 years.)

anyone else have the problem that the "Remember me" thingy (the one used for automatic login) doesn't work?

Works for me. Maybe you are accessing the site through an url with the SID-get-parameter? Maybe you disallowed cookies? Maybe you don't use the HTTPS version? ( https://para-welt.com/ )

Cookies are enabled and work for every other site, and the https redirects me to the normal para-welt.com forum..... but it displays a little lock next to the url, so I guess it works, I just can't see the entire url in the url bar... and if SID-get means the end of the url looks somewhat like this index.php?=vrneuiowp9dkojcwe809fwj98ezh398dh9whdjw309e then no, it doesn't... I pressed the link on the para-welt.com main page, the one that links to tavern etc. as well

Ok, I tried Chrome, Comodo, Firefox, Opera, and MS Edge, and none of them do the auto login. Neither from my home wifi nor from my work wifi (same laptop).

Hmm, try this. If it doesn't work I'm afraid I cannot help you.
0. Make sure Javascript is allowed.
1. Delete all *para-welt-Cookies (forum.para-welt and para-welt)
2. Clear the website cache
3. Close the browser
4. Restart it and use this link for login before going on any other para-welt page: https://para-welt.com/forum/ucp.php?mode=login (Don't forget the checkbox)
5. Close your browser
6. Restart it and use this link: https://para-welt.com/forum/
7. You *should* be logged in again...

Maybe you accessed the forum through a link that still has the index.php?sid=u4zfcn723zcnx?
And you should not use forum.para-welt.com anymore, that's just a redirect, in case you do.

it worked!!! great, thanks very much :)


Edit: after using the link on para-welt main page only once, it stopped working again :?

Edit 2: Ok, even after doing this trick again and then only ever using the Link you provided, it still doesn't remember me after a day or so :?
