Site issues

at 17:14 - 12th, March 2021
The site is experiencing some issues that I can't quite figure out. The main issue is that the cookies used for logging in and chatting, posting news and comments and what not does not seem to work. No idea why.

At first I thought it was because google and firefox upped their security of cookies and it broke something, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I've updated my cookie creation method to be more inline with current standards and doesn't seem to make a difference.

Added to this, the new hosting service is having a hell of a time with my isp, or vice versa. I can barely connect via ftp on my home internet, and when I am to connect the changes don't seem to be taking sticking, even if i do it with the built in editing tools.

I'm wondering if the servers use some kind of aws and it's caching information and just won't let it go. It's all very frustrating because I've spoken with support of the new host and they can't figure it out either.

I got it, the webhost implemented a erver caching script to speed up sites being hosted. they're still working on the bugs. Once they flushed the cache, I reloaded the page and was logged in without doing anything.

For the life of me, I cannot get htaccess to flush the php cache like it's supposed to. I might just have to turn of caching entirely. :

General clean up continues. Fixed minor bugs with the following:

  • This month's popular news posts now shows how many comments are posted to that topic

  • Fixed the Top News this Month - it now shows the "Hot" icon again

  • Stopped this months popular from repeating

  • Added more similar news items to the news posts

  • The similar posts should not repeat anymore

  • cleaned up how Similar posts look a bit - might change it some more

  • Fixed bug for scanning through the main content, you can actually surf the entire site again by clicking on the "older items" and "newer items" links at the bottom of the main page. This one was a big one, it basically broke the history of the site for bots. So hopefully it'll start showing up in search results again

Got the user page working again, though I want to tweak it a bit more. The way it is now is sufficient but I have some ideas on how to make it better.
