    I am not sure about others, but I am getting trouble to have my browser show Stratics UO pages, it starts showing the page I want but then right away it turns into a page about some WordPress thing....

    What gives ?

    I have that problem when I use Firefox, but I can get in fine if I use Chrome. OK, even in Chrome if I try to get to the "New" section, it locks me out again. Odd.

    You could also try logging out of the forums before you load pages in UOStratics. It's annoying, but it did work for me.

    FYI, the wordpress theme you are using (it's the same one I used for my site) has a tendency to be slow. The devs of that theme has a FAQ setup to explain how to speed the them up, but my site still takes 4.5 seconds to load :( ...la

    Thanks for the tip Rico - will look at that.
    As we are developing some new stuff, no guarantee will implement - but will look. ;)

    I have not been able to get around this at all. I was trying to research something over the weekend and everytime I found a page on stratics that had the info I needed I would get diverted to the WordPress login screen. Other than the forums, stratics is completely useless to me right now. Making your product unusable to your customers is not a good first step for new management.

    close to a fix... almost...
    so sowwy for this - our server's configuration is vastly different than what had been used for Stratics in the past, and that has caused havoc with configurations, directory permissions and data.

    will update with status.

    Alright... the wordpress login should stop hi-jacking guest viewing of the UO.Stratics site.
    There is a problem with the plugin and I've gotten with the the developer on it (finally). He's looking into the problem.

    Sorry for the hassle folk! Thanks for your patience!

    Question. Does that perhaps mean that this could result in us, Stratics' users, having trouble with links not working and ending up to pages no longer there because moved elsewhere ?

    Or have ALL Stratics' links been automatically updated to whetever new addresses the pages have been moved to ?

    Thanks.

    That is certainly an issue when moving sites to different servers and databases. I would think the best thing the users can do, is notify the Stratic devs when they run into this type of issue...la

    actually, yes, what Rico said.

    To whit... many of the super old guides, data tables and what not run on tech so old we cannot install it on the new servers without risking security breaches. This is causing a problem for a slew of UO-guide pages that are based on that super old tech.
    RonBron & I are currently working on a solution to this, but this does mean that in the interim, we cannot display that information. The information is not _gone_ just cannot be displayed. We also cannot just arbitrarily go and disconnect it all, because some of it _is_ displaying.

    Past staff did an awesome job in keeping the old tech running and live. It was common knowledge that, eventually, that tech would ultimately fail. With this transfer - it has.

    So, samples of errors like...
    [​IMG]

    and
    [​IMG]

    and even longer with a whole bunch of geek-speak.

    Or you will see just the text of a page:
    [​IMG]


    We are doing the best we can to move as quickly as possible to get services up and running (basically completed with just a couple of smaller issues) and now we are focusing on the new structure which will herald migration of this old data into a more modern data structure for future development and growth.

    In the short - we be workin' on it! But we do need time to accomplish it, and be concise.

    This just started happening for me today. I switched to an incognito window in chrome and it let me browse and log in. Something else I can do to fix this, or just wait it out and hope it goes back to normal?
