MAINTENANCE MODE TO FIX THOSE NASTY ???
« on: August 05, 2019, 04:31:08 PM »


Hey all! As you've probably noticed, we have a little issue with our coding. In order to fix this issue, we need to add a coding language to our site. Because of this, we'll be making a little backup of the site! We'll be saving all the information that was made today before 3 P.M. PST, so please avoid making posts after that time. We'll likely go into maintenance mode to solve this error! Please be prepared & wish us luck (we don't know if it'll fix the errors right now, but it should fix any future errors)!

Update, after a lot of looking and a lot of testing and a lot of trying, we're unfortunately not much closer than we wanted to be. We're consulting with SMF forums to get some help, and after we get an answer, we'll be able to put the side back into maintenance and fix this issue! Sorry all, we're trying our best. In the meantime, we're cooking up a little something to make it up to you all (and hopefully, making things a little more accessible).

I will add that I’ve noticed that usually symbols/quotations/etc that are Apple tend to fuck up the most. For example—
“” compared to ""
‘ compared to '
The straight quotations and apostrophes in the Brendan posts don’t get messed up, however the tilted Apple ones do. This isn’t something we can all avoid by any means, but it’s a worthwhile thing to note. (I know on Apple phones, if you hold down on the quotation or apostrophe you can get the straight ones!)

Anyways sorry for this L I tried my best

guESS WHAT NERDS

The solution still isn't entirely fixed. However, in order to get to where we are now, I did a few things:
— updated the php version of the site
— updated the site in general
— downloaded a new language

Are the symbols still there? Yes, and it pains me so. BUT, with the stuff I did, the site should run a crap ton faster now AND it'll prevent the symbol bug glitch thing from happening again :'^D

Big mcthankies from mcspankies everyone for your patience!! I've been trying my best and it's 2 AM and I probs need to sleep,,

I'm unsure if it's just me, but after this update almost every button in threads and replies has been messed up? Example one, and two. The second only seems to be happening to certain members.

edit: With some further investigation I THINK it's only mods or board mods?

With FURTHER investigation it's happening to mostly online members and offline friends so I guess that's the buttons messed up there. Good luck with maintenance mode!
