    Intentional for the MOMENT. We're doing some work with Vanilla to get the comments and stuff working right there. Should be fixed in the next day or two.
    Because of CFM (our current site architecture), we have to have news posts (which tie to forum threads), and feature/review posts that don't. We're looking to find a nice way to import comments from the news posts into the feature/review posts. Vanilla is working on it with us.
    Does the one other person in the world that still uses Cold Fusion help you guys with tips an tricks? Hahaha, just kidding. Couldn't resist the elitist programming barb.
    @Torval ;

    Pffft.  Cold Fusion.  I never mess with that new stuff.  Perl CGI with SSI for me.  Nothing it can't do if you have the time to write it from scratch.  :-)

    Hey... CFM is fun!

    And really... Bill was completely wrong about CFM being the root of all this evil... integrating two separate systems such as Vanilla and the current MMORPG.com site or even the upcoming new site based on the Drupal platform takes some tweaking to work out all of the kinks.

    Been there, done that (not exactly but close).  Really glad it's your job this time around.  :-)

    Good work.

    When on any forum page clicking on the MMORPG.com trademark or the Home page button takes me to the Home page. The home page shows I am not logged into the site and asks for name and password.  While on the home page if I then click the Forums button I am taken to the main forums page and I am shown as being logged in. 

    I've been on the site for several hours and have not visited the front page for most of them. 


    Addition: I'm using Chrome. I just closed my browser and restarted it. The home page still doesn't show me as being logged in. While not logged in on the home page if I click on the Forums button on the home page then it changes to the forums and I am still logged in.

    The new forum is remotely hosted.  It looks like site and forum have their own authentication system.

    I tried logging out from main site, and I was still logged in here on the forum.

    Yes the SSO login only works in one direction from the site -> forums.  The forums session length is indefinite so it's possible to timeout your login on the main site while on the forums and experience what you're seeing.  I have an idea about what could help with that and will be trying it out once we get the more major issues out of the way.

    I cant post on the Android app with my Samsung browser. I am stuck in a loop. Says I need to sign in, I click sign in and it takes me to the home page. I am already logged in. I click the forum and I am not logged in there, I click log in and well, thats the loop lol

    EDIT: Same thing happens with Android Chrome browser.
    EDIT2: Same thing on Android Firefox.
    Can you give me a step by step including the exact links you click to make this happen?
    1. Goto mmorpg.com, shows I am logged in
    2. Click one of the top forum posts off the main page. It takes me to the forum page
    3. It shows me a button or a link depending on the app to sign in
    4. I click sign in and it takes me to the main home page mmorpg.com and shows I am logged in
    5. I click back on the forum post I want to post on and it takes me to the forum. 
    6. Again depending on the browser I see a sign in button or a link. I click sign in and
    7. I am back on the home page already logged in. 

    Kinda getting no where lol

    EDIT: This is on Samsung browser, Chrome and Firefox on my Note 3 5.0.0 phone
    OK, yes this is a known issue if logged in and clicking through the current forum activity area.  If you click through the forums tab or other links into the forum you'll be logged in and things will work.  The current forum activity issue will be fixed up tomorrow am.

    First of all, the forums are working great in Edge - I was having a few weird issues with the other one using that browser. Also very nice and quick using my iPad's Safari.


    I found a problem with the link to the forum off "Favorite Games" on the main site. The "Articles" and "News" links work fine since they link to main site pages but the "Forum" link goes to a "Page Not Found" error page in the new forum.
    This has been fixed!

    Is there no way to respond directly to posts anymore? All I get is this "Leave a Comment" at the very bottom of the pages.. oh and could you please put the page links(1,2,3...) at the top of the pages too please?

    Figured out my sig issue, seems the main page still has it's own profile that doesn't talk to the profile here in the forums.  I was able to find the sig options here though and fix the issue I was having.  Need to maybe consolidate both profiles or get rid of the old one while keeping this new one.

    Like a reply without quote.  That's what I often used on the old forum.

    There are three inch margins on both sides of the screen doing nothing, you should fix that.

    Firefox is complaining:  This Connection is Untrusted

    You have asked Firefox to connect securely to forums.mmorpg.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

    Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.
    What Should I Do?

    If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

    forums.mmorpg.com uses an invalid security certificate.

    The certificate is only valid for the following names:
      *.vanillaforums.com, vanillaforums.com 

    (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)


    Yes.  We do not have an ssl cert for our site.  Are you getting this error from a link or are you typing in https://forums.mmorpg.com?
    FYI, clicking on that link in your post causes the problem if you need clarification.
    Yes of course but there are no links on our pages that use https:// all should be http:// which would not throw a ssl cert error.
    I understand that just reporting it.  If it wasn't clear to you, I wasn't typing it in ever.  It was clicking a link on your page that caused it to come up.  Your comment makes it sound like you are saying I added the httpS

    Please tell me which link you clicked on to get the ssl error. Also Firefox has extensions that will force all browsing to be done over ssl. 

    Just trying to determine what's going on. Any specifics on how to recreate the issue helps me out a lot.

    Clicked the MMORPG.com logo and got this from Opera.

    That's a strange one.  You were logged in here then clicked on the top logo and ended up with the redirect loop?

    Yes.  As I see it, failed login redirects to autologin, which of course fails.

    The bug shows up after a password update.

    Replying to a thread no longer auto bookmarks it. The old forum behavior had this as an option I believe but the new one does not. I'm not sure if that is intended behavior or not.

    I'm not sure if we have an option to turn that on. I'll look into it.

    Internet Explorer dies a horrible horrible death if you try to open up any forum. This is on windows 10. The page will just freeze up and need to either kill the window through the taskbar by closing everything or when that fails 50% of the time then killing IE through task manager

    Is this using the new edge browser?

    Actually no, just loaded up edge and it works fine. Its the run of the mill normal IE 11 that hates the forums for some reason
