tl;dr

On PC, If you find yourself stuck with quotes that you didn't really want to quote and can't get rid of them: Right click on top left hand corner of the quote, select all, backspace.

Does not work with IOS. Only solution I've found is to go into my iPad settings, delete all web data, then log in to the FFA again. Huge pain in the ###, and it's randomly happening more and more. I don't understand how they could screw this up so badly.

I should add in Windows Explorer it is "select all" in Chrome it is "copy image" and for IOS it is "your fault for buying that POS".

I assumed everybody had the FFA as their bookmark. Guess that's why most people weren't seeing this issue. 

It shouldn't matter if a specific sub-forum is bookmarked or not. Once you log in from the main forum page and check "Remember Me" you shouldn't have to log in (twice) the next time you visit. I don't care if others aren't having this same issue. Enough of us are, and are voicing our displeasure over it, that something should be done about it.

What would be refreshing to read is that this upgrade is far from what the brass at FBG had hoped for when they decided it was time to upgrade and are thoroughly disappointed in the product they purchased from Invision.

all I can do is pass along the issues people are having with the software. those get passed along to Invision. then hopefully they fix it.

Can you get Joe to call Invision this afternoon?

Need Woz to review the contract between Footballguys and Invision?

Heard back on the login issue from Invision. They think the issue was that the message board was supposed to redirect logins coming in via http, over to https, but it wasn't working properly. So if a bookmark went to http://forums.footballguys.com to get to the forums, it was supposed to redirect you to the correct secure URL of https://forums.footballguys.com but that wasn't working. The login wasn't recognized at the insecure URL. The work around found earlier of clicking a forum link worked because the forum links are to the correct secure https pages which then recognize the login normally.

The http->https redirection has been restored by Invision and we're making some change to the site menu to help with it. Can a couple of you who were hitting the issue with the bookmark you were using confirm it is working?

Works great for me now. It remembers me and keeps me signed in. I've been using the forums from the FBGs main page > Home Tab > Forums Home

 

Thanks for clearing this up

Okay - I figured this out.  I go the main forums page and it's showing me as not logged in.  But if I go click on the FFA, Shark Pool or Baseball forums, it then logs me in.  Must be a caching issue with the page.   In any case, this is no longer an issue for me.

This helped crack the case. Thanks.

Yep, it is working now.  :thumbup:

I checked my bookmark and it was to http

A positive thing I just found out.

The advanced search function allows you to search for 3 letter words. I just made a post about power supplies and was able to search for 'UPS' with out getting the old error.

Nice!

Not sure if it's been mentioned by others, but using Chrome on my Android phone, most times when I click on the bookmark for FBG, it opens up Chrome but simply opens up the last tab I had and does not actually go to FBG.  It's the only bookmark that does that.  I have to actually kill Chrome in order to get it to load.  An annoyance for sure and not sure why it's isolated to FBG.  Anyone else with this issue?

First guess would be it's a corrupted bookmark and you should delete it and rebookmark it again.

I did that a few times. Even tried linking different pages at FBG and they all did the same.

Hate the new format.  It's discombobulating with no post counts in the thread and only relative times.  i.e. Posted two minutes ago.  Oh Bull####.  Two minutes since I loaded the page.

The relative times drive me nuts.  But I'm also having to re-login all the time (Chrome on Windows), so I end up having to reload pages anyway.  I tend to have a lot of tabs open at once.  Usually have the forum in one tab and open each interesting thread in a separate tab.  Maybe that's confusing the bored software.

Add to that, when I re-login I have "new" notifications that I had already acknowledged in my previous session.  Very annoying.

Is anyone experiencing problems with subsequent posts after quoting someone?

 

I'll post a reply with a quoted response.

 

Then try to post something else later and my last response is in my text box along with the quote.

 

So I have to do that stupid way of deleting it all...especially while on my phone.

 

What the hell...seriously...just fix this crap already or F'ing roll us back to Ol' Yellar already.

 

There's no excuse for a site to run this damned haphazardly and duct taped together especially with the premiums that are being charged by this site.

 

And don't act like the boards aren't a significant part of this site...they drive this entire engine...without them...this product loses a lot of value.

Yes, it was fixed. Bookmarks to http: addresses were not getting redirected to https: which is where the login is at. People found clicking on the forum link worked because it took them to an https: address.  The automatic redirection that was broken on the http: one was fixed.

Sounds like it has been resolved, related to some accounts that had issues and threads they posted in were affected as a result.

@Greg Russell - can you explain this? I'm still having trouble - makes me log back in numerous times a day - how do I correct this?

Hrm, you are the first to indicate it is still a problem, the others who replied said it fixed it.

Can you give full details?

What browser and version, and what OS/version?

What exact URL(s) are you going to where it does not recognize you?

If you click on a link on that page it doesn't recognize you, does it recognize you when it takes you into the thread or forum?

Seems to only be on my iPhone - iOS 9.3.1 using Safari 

seems to be consistent across all threads/URLs but just started like a few days ago.  I may try purging my temp files and try again.

I don't understand why this board has to use invision software, there are much better and customizable platforms out there.

Anyone else get the vibe that FBG was the guinea pig here.....? A trial run for Invision's new board? Knock out all the bugs and kinks?

Of course not. I just tried to edit a post in the Mock drafts forum. Spent a good 10 minutes getting it right.....then, clicking "Save" did absolutely nothing. No updated post. Not gonna even bother anymore. What a joke.

Still waiting to hear from Joe/David on their thoughts on this horrendous "downgrade" but I suspect (probably with 100% accuracy) that we never will.

Happens to me every time I go to the Forums in Chrome on my iPhone. To the point where I decided to just leave Chrome open after a login and open other windows to go to other sites rather than leave the site and later open the page and login again.

It also happens to me much more frequently on my laptop than it did before the upgrade, with no apparent pattern.

Why does it require me to post a message with a quote in order for the quote box to disappear in subsequent posts?  My employer thanks you as I hardly post during work because of this.  Android 6.0.2.
