U2U Problems

Post by taekwondodo » Thu Oct 23, 2003 8:39 pm

Don't know if it's my computer or the site, so I figured I'd check here first. The last 2x I've tried to access my U2U it's frozen my computer - as in can't make any internet function work. I've had to ctrl/alt/del and do end program on Nightscrawlers and then log back onto the internet. Any thoughts?

Just off the top of my head, I think it's possible that your computer doesn't like popup windows. Copy and paste this link into your current window (DON'T click on it, a new window will pop up. Stupid BB code)

You didn't say what browser or operating system you're using, although it's apparently some flavor of Windows, so I'll assume you're also using IE.

Try clearing your browser's cache first of all. Start | Settings | Control Panel | Internet Options | General tab, then, in the Temporary Internet Files section, click the "Delete Files" button.

Corrupted files in the cache can cause all sorts of browser misbehavior, so this is should be a safe place to start.

Panz, I just tried u2u-ing you. It seems to have worked from my end. If you've got too many u2u's saved in your inbox and outbox, I don't think it will let you send anymore until you delete some.

U2U disabled?

Post by Shadow_Dancer » Thu Aug 12, 2004 1:35 am

I just tried to send a u2u and got a syntax error notice.

Has anyone else encountered a problem with the u2u.? It was working just a few days ago.

U2U Problems

Post by Northstars Love » Thu Aug 12, 2004 7:38 am

hmm...which hack Jill? I also noticed that it is giving a false number of U2U's in the folder box. It said I had 0 Inbox and 0 Outbox when I clearly had 6 Inbox and 5 Outbox. I had a total of 11 out of a max of 20. :scratch

Post by Northstars Love » Mon Aug 30, 2004 5:34 pm

Sorry for the second post guys but we're still not able to send U2U's. I wanted to send C a U2U if he received a package I sent him but it still has the error. :/

U2U Problems

Panz,

The error is caused by the Member's Approval hack Jill and C installed.

sorry. I've been wanting to send you a u2u to welcome you to the X Dream. And since I never see you in chat.... :(

Thanks for both the clue-up about the u2u problem and the invite. :)
I have been really depressed for a while now and haven't felt like whining and being gloomy at everybody, so I don't go to chat much.

U2U Problems

Post by Bamfette » Mon Sep 20, 2004 2:40 pm

well, it MAY be the member approval hack, ost likely is..... but it also may be the warning hack. either way, i don't know how to fix it. i am waiting for them to make those hacks more compatable with the newest forum version, then will re upload un hacked files, and do it all again from scratch. this depends on THEM, though, so i can't say when.

My computer or the site??

Post by luvnightcrawler » Mon Feb 21, 2005 10:28 pm

I know this has bee n mentioned before, but whenever i try to send a u2u or acess anything besides the forums, i get this message---

You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'WHERE cid='1'' at line 1

Please help me out. Is it just the site or is my computer screwed up??:?:?

I'll leave it to the admins for specifics, but suffice it to say that it's the site. Specifically, it's the forum software.

U2U Problems

Post by Bamfette » Tue Feb 22, 2005 12:28 am

actually, while the server does have frequent hiccups and unannonced re-boots (whch screws us up when our host does that) the U2U and gallery not working are two separate problems that have noting at all to do with the server/database, it ahs to do with out of date or mixed up coding. u2u - i installed 'hacks' to help with other areas of the site, specifically a warning system and the ability to approve member accounts before they can post. something conflicted, and it broke the u2u's. i haven't fixed it, and it probably will not be fixed for some time, as i would have to either undo the hacks, or install the forum fresh and reapply other hacks. neither of which i want to do unless something is more pressing. sorry. its a very time consuming process and not something i will do on a whim, especially if it means giving up features we as site administrartors and moderators would very much like to keep.

the gallery - the gallery itself is again one giant 'hack' of the forum software, it is an addon, and not normally a part of a forum like this. it is incredibly complex and was designed by someone else, he distributed the code for it freely. we installed it and ran it with XMB 1.8. Later, due to security holes, we upgraded to 1.9, but the guy who had designed the image gallery hack had moved on to other things in his life, and never upgraded the hack to work with 1.9. there are people who say they are trying to get the upgrade to work with 1.9 but nothing has come of those efforts so far, and the hack remains out of date, and the gallery broken.
