I'll just recreate it. It wasn't that hard.


I put instructions in the Hargil's thread. Sorry about that --- I thought it would keep the custom bbcodes. :wearesorry:

It's weird. I tried to recreate it, but it says that it already exists-- but it's not showing up on the list or working at Hargil's. That's okay. I'll just reformat them in Hargil's per your example. :yes:

Maybe "youtube" is an alternate usage of the new code and cancels the first one out. I'll have to test that.....

That's exactly it. [youtube] still works, but it requires the full address, not just the individual identifier.

I see. If you want to keep using your custom code I bet you could rename it --- rjyoutube or something.

No, we don't need it now. And all I have to do to bring the Hargil's videos back is paste in that string you provided ahead of the code-- very easy. :yes:

That means I probably have to go through and re-video my choir thread. Oh well...I'll do it in the morning. :yawn:

Is this a new feature, or have I just been extremely unobservant the past 2.5 years? :conf: I don't remember seeing what threads the recent posts were in. Seems like a nifty feature...if it's new. If it's been there all along...disregard this post and choc it up to lack of sleep please. :D

^^ It took me a while to realize what was different. :lol:

All you have to do is paste in "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=" between the code and the ID tag. It goes pretty quickly.

I think I fixed the auto-login problem.

So now you should be able to stay logged in for several days at a time. If you close the page you won't be logged out (like last time).

My cookie path for the board wasn't set correctly. I fixed it. :geek: :borg: :D

Ah, hopefully that explains Madeliaette's problem. She wasn't able to log in earlier. I asked her to try again. Crossing my fingers....

RJ, do you know how to do mass PMs?

I had to change the cookies back to the old ones, but that means we're still going to have the login issue. What needs to happen is that people need to clear cookies from their browser. I'm going to wait until everyone gets the news to do this before fixing the cookie path again.

Could we possibly send a mass PM to all board members?

Actually, it looks like I can do a mass email. Maybe that's a better option.

I was wondering why i couldnt post last night! I thought it might be a NY glitch. Glad to hear the problerm is solved - even nif I dont like clearing cookies (I have to re-sign in to ALL my bookmarks, not just one - and I have about 50!) Glad it wasn't a majopr leaguer hitch from your side though!

Cayla sent me a PM at TrekBBS that she can't get in. I'll let her know to clear out her cookies. :yes:

She might just have to re-sign in - I didnt have to clear my cookies after all - i simply had to sign in again - and then i got thru instead of the sign in page repeating itself (PHEW!) and it seems to work right away now without a cookie-clear.

I just cleared cookies, and the board is letting me log in from Chrome again. :yes: Since we can see Announcements without being logged in...perhaps it may be a good idea to post in the announcement forum any changes like this, instead of sending a mass email. Just gotta make sure people get into the habit of checking it. :yes:

Hi folks, I'm going to change the cookie path again so that the automatic login works. I had to change it back so y'all could get in. Here's how you clear your cookies:

Firefox - how to clear the cache

Chrome - scroll down, you'll see the section on clearing cookies

Internet Explorer - clearing cookies

Safari - clearing cookies

Sorry for the inconvenience. This should get things on track. Then afterwards you won't have to log in every time you visit the board.

Happy New Year! :party:

I seemed to be logged in when I first got here, but when I tried to post it told me that I needed to log in then I had to clear my cookies again to get in.

That sort of happened to me, too. It said I was logged in and my name was listed along with Elmo's at the bottom of the page, but I noticed that the time stamps were off and the little "new posts" button to the left of Thread titles was absent. When I went to Post about that here, it asked me to log in and then wouldn't respond; that's when I cleared the cookies and got back in.
