Oh well, the upgrade this afternoon went really well except that only a couple of users could login Sad
So instead of spending all night trying to workout what went wrong I have reverted back to an earlier version.
Anything posted and new members created in the last 8 hours have been lost.
At least there weren't many posts as not many people could login.
Sorry to any new members that lost their registration and for any other inconvenience.

Still problems

I have downgraded to the original files and database and still people having problems.
If you have problems try deleting cookies and browser cache.

I'm back , don't panic, I know you must all have missed me.

Clearing browser cache, any authenticated sessions?, and cookies should sort login problems.

Tnx Hugo

Forced refresh and clearing cache didn't do, but deleting session cookies did. What a PITA, especially as I posted a highly excellent comment to a thread during the "upgrade", and now it's lost. Oh, well.

cheers,

UI design should be egoless; if you succumb to the temptation to show off, you’re probably doing it wrong. (from ESR)

There are enough html & css demos and tutorials to be interesting. Please visit.

Just had to clear another

Just had to clear another copy of FF and was selective this time in clearing data and checking login; Clearing cache made no difference, forced refresh either, nor did clearing authenticated (or otherwise) sessions, however deleting that one little cookie in my list, did the trick.

Course would need to reverse that order of tests for any real varisity.

Oh no, and I've just realised it was the one ("alt text is NOT a tooltip")I had read and been trying to get to all day to add a little point to, oh well. I can concur though that it was a mighty fine excellent comment that Gary posted Smile
