Odd forum behaviour
« on: April 07, 2016, 07:00:02 pm »
If anyone notices any odd forum behaviour, specially whilst connected via SSL, can you please let me know.

I've already noticed when I post something, then go to

posts > all unread

my own posting is listed there as a new posting .. it didn't do that previously, so I'll no doubt need to do a little tweaking  ???

Depends on the screen.  In this thread ...

Console is lighting up - 20 sec lag on refresh - missing icons

Test.

Edit: Nope, it didn't show up as a new post.  However, I do notice nobody seems to have avatars anymore.  Do we need to redo those?

Hi All

The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved.

Is what I get when trying to upload my avatar

Also clicking on spoilers does not open them up

@ scifidude + zebedeebos - Avatars and Attachments fixed

@ VinDSL - I think the refresh times are to do with the mixed content (some of which may be external images .. some will be internal glitches, which I'm working on ;)

Smileys fixed

This spoiler is here for my testing purposes.

I've also noticed the fekbook/G+/etc. buttons are missing at the top .. these are part of the theme, I've edited the template to point them all at https, but that still doesn't seem to have fixed it  :-\ (still looking)

and here was I thinking the hard work was over ::)



BTW, thanks everyone :)

My observations...

- Outdated Cipher Suite (Server Configuration Options could give a solution?)
- Mixed Content, which is not a real problem for a forum but on the main site it would be preferable to host everything on https...

Hope this helps because that's the intention of this post!  ;)

Okay

Social buttons fixed (http://ajax.googleapis.com   -->   https://ajax.googleaplis.com)

Also seems to have fixed the spoilers :)



Mixed content - Nothing I can do about that, everything (that I've found so far) from this site is served over SSL, but some images such as the one from VinDSL above in this topic are coming from non secure sites) .. that doesn't really present a security risk here though, the "mixed content" warning is purely that, an informational warning.

Mixed content on the main site (peppermintos.com) will be eliminated as soon as i can get around to it .. but then you're  not really passing any passwords and such to the main site (and the login page for admin is already encrypted, as are all the admin pages .. it's purely a few internal links it's bitchin about such as the images in the slider) ;)

Outdated cipher suite - Where are you getting this from ? (more info please, so if necessary I can look into it)

It was working great yesterday, in fact i was going to comment this morning how fast it was on the new server...
However today the forum is like reading a text file...
what happened?
I'll take a screen shot so you can see...

@PCNetSpec:

On Chromium and Google Chrome:

Second lock with yellow warning triangle: "Your connection with forum.peppermintos.com is encrypted via an outdated Cipher Suite..."



On Firefox:



Misconfiguration of the server...
If I add (import) the certificate to trusted I don't get any further warnings (except for mixed content which is normal on a forum like this).
So Firefox doesn't mention the Outdated Cipher Suite...

I tested the server and this could give you a clue: Test!
"Insecure" RC4 and the availability of SSLv3 seems to be the "problems".



@rjm65: I cannot replicate your issue...


Hope this helps!  ;)

I am running firefox on windows 7 with adblock installed, I also run other add ons for browser safety, such as avast's protection module, and also avira safe website addon...
and the forum was fine yesterday, today it is nothing but what you see in my screenshot, and it is very hard to navigate...  :(

It was fine for me at home on Firefox on Peppermint 6.  (current version)

However, I just had that messed up looking crap on Chrome on my phone.  It happened a few times then reverted back to normal.  The only thing I can suggest is clearing your cache and reloading the page.
