Title: UMA Down For Maintenance
Post by: fmofmpls on November 03, 2012, 02:44:59 PM
The UMA will be down for several hours tomorrow morning, Sunday, November 4, for maintenance. This will be an extensive overhaul which could result in the forum being down for the better part of the morning. Check our Facebook page for status updates.

Ok. We're back up and running again. Still work to be done, and graphics to tweak, but I need a break. I'm been behind this screen pushing and pulling buttons non-stop for almost 6 hrs today.

Software upgrade complete.

Server upgrade complete.

Database tables rendered for optimization complete.

New themes are coming in days.

Time to eat and watch some football.

That's Charlie Chaplin in "Modern Times," which is hysterically funny.

So who messed up the poll displays? Was this part and parcel of the recent changes made on this board? If indeed it was, so much for doing polls since the results can't be deciphered.

Please explain Hepcat what troubles you are experiencing with Polls. I checked the permissions with polls, and it should still be visible to members.

The vote tallies have been shifted into two columns and shuffled somehow. The totals beside each name after the first one are now simply wrong.

Hepcat, I'm not seeing the problem as you've described it, or I'm just not comprehending it correctly.

Here's what I see on my screen.

That is strange. It might be a theme issue. I'll look into this and see if I can't locate the bug. What browser are you using?

It's not the theme since I get the same misleading vote total display regardless of whether I'm logged in or not.

I'm using Internet Explorer here. I'll check the display I get using other computers.

Hmmmm. So on my laptop at home which is also on Internet Explorer the display is fine. Very confusing. Nonetheless, some feature introduced during the change has confused my office computer.

Try clearing your office computers cache and cookies. It could be that your office computer is holding onto some old cookies and the browser is misinterpreting some code somewhere. Either that, or give it a good swift kick when the boss isn't looking.

Good idea with respect to the cache and cookies. I'll also switch to Google Chrome as my browser at the office and see what happens then.

One very good thing since the change - the jiggle that plagued some of us when making longer posts is gone!

Hmmmmm. So I deleted my cache and cookies, and that didn't work. Then I switched to Google Chrome as my browser and that has not worked either. Next step, phone our tech people.

Yeah, precisely. Being beholden to only clients is the main benefit of being a stockbroker. The major drawback is correspondingly having no guaranteed source of income.
