I do have the User Control Panel option now, just can't figure out if the option to change colors/themes is supposed to be available or where that piece is. No rush.

It also strikes me that if we continue to have tags on the board for users it might be appropriate to have "Society Member", "Society Charter Member", "Society Director", etc. as a tag in addition to the HC tags.

The alternate green theme should be available and working now - Rob installed it last night. The confusion came from having it "installed" in the transferred settings but not actually, well, installed.

I've patched and fixed a few things in the background and the only problem I'm aware of is the refusal of the system to hold persistent logins - which I am pretty sure is a deep directory-permissions issue, resolvable only by Rob. I've pointed him in the right direction on that but it may take a few days.

I agree with JT that the special membership designations should be overhauled. A heads up, though - creating new groups (THS Member, etc.) fragments the permission settings and you have to be careful to copy permissions or set them appropriately for each group. Failure to do so results in the odd problems like Bill H's inability to set a signature, etc.

I "forced" JT's theme to the blue from the back-end this morning after his initial report that green wasn't working (from last night), and before I saw notice that it had since been fixed.

So that might be the issue why he doesn't have an option to change it now. . . I'll go unforce it.

'Getaway Green' problem

There is an option on the 'board settings' admin to override user style with default. changing that to 'no' should fix it.

Right, David. That's what I did to JT when he told me that green wasn't working at all for him.

Undone now, so hopefully he has the option again in his UCP.

Why do I have this image of the Three Stooges in a power plant, alternately slapping switches and each other? :D

Seriously, folks, this is the Dance of a Thousand Details. We'll get it smoothed out soon.

Post Persistent Login fixed... I think...
I went through the system settings and made a number of changes related to the host domain, cookie name, etc. - and that seems to have fixed persistent logins. I recommend that each user log out, close their browser, open it again, and log in carefully with the "keep me logged in" box checked. That should do it. If not, try purging all cookies related to the Nexus in your browser and try again.

I was successfully maintaining a persistent login from three browsers (home, work and mobile) with no problems before the host change, so I know it can be done.

Report any further problems with persistent logins.

My account seems to be persisting nicely now, and auto-logging in when I return.

I have an email this morning from Bill P saying he's having problems signing on --I pointed him at Jim's advice above.

Stupid of me not to recognize the problem. Once a post has been read by anyone, it can no longer be edited. Except by me :twisted:

David, dig into the permissions - I think there may be a built-in mode that sets an editing time limit. If not, there may be a simple mod that adds the feature. I don't think allowing unlimited editing is a good idea, but as someone who frequently edits his posts 2-3 times in the course of getting them into place, I'd like to see a 15 to 30 minute "oops, damn" window.

I will look over the settings and support info and see if there's anything I can suggest.
