    G Whiz... I just asked them for a simple little code change (remove Wall Posts)--And it blew up our little forum (for about 1 hour earlier today). Between a missing bracket, and some weirdness code edits that have built up in our templates/themes--And ongoing upgrades of base software that chose to "choke" on a few pieces of old code--It all came together with the perfect storm.

    They have gotten the forum back going again... And will be going through our (relatively) old theming code and make sure that it is all clean.

    And, I will double check the double spacing... Yesterday, I was having no problem. But after the little "fire" here, it did come back again for me (Android/Firefox Beta). I will double check tomorrow and see if I can repeat, and report the bug/issue/feature if needed.

    Have fun,
    -Bill

    I'm not a big fan of changes to online sites. You get used to how to navigate a site and then they change it. I'm more of a "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" kind of guy.

    Morning Tecnodave,

    Send me a PM with your new email address, and I will update your profile... Although, you should be update your own email.

    https://forum.solar-electric.com/profile

    Regarding your Ipad... I think you have the "keep me signed in" box checked when logging in?

    You are not using any sort of cookie manager? (I do, and I have to allow cookies for the forum).

    BB,

    It remembered me this time, I don’t use a cookie manager, and my email address has been updated. My old iPad crashed and burned.....really it got a piece of debris between screen and digitizer and does not respond to input cant  even key in password. Time to go. Don’t know how to dispose of it because there are sensitive stuff locked locked up in there I would not want anyone to retrieve and use.  Any ideas?  iPad had only access to old email account, Apple said it was not recoverable even though I backup on iCloud, even the government could not get it??  It’s only worth $85.00 or so and a new ditigitizer and screen is going to cost $150.00 so new iPad is less expensive and much improved. Maybe on the chopping block and whacked up with axe?

    Yep, a hammer worked for our former secretary of state/senator from New York.

    Regarding the online backup... I don't know anything about the Apple ecosystem. Should you not be able to login with the email address/password for icloud?

    Assume that somebody somewhere has access to any networked "appliance" and online/cloud storage... And you cannot go wrong.
