Recent down time

TPFC was down for a number of hours due to an IP address configuration issue. The hosting provider did a network upgrade and decided to move the VPS instance to a totally different subnet. Because I am not familiar with the process, I made an error with configuring the new IP address/subnet. I am st...

Re: Everything Video Editor

Natron looks really cool, with lots of YouTube tutorials online.

My eldest child is looking to experiment with video compositing, but we obviously cannot afford AfterEffects, so this will come in really handy!

Re: Comments RSS feeds

Apologies for the late action. I was on a family trip for the past 3 days to the mountains.

I have fixed the Recent Forum post RSS link problem.

Thanks for spotting this!

[EDIT]
Tried the RSS feed for recent comments, but it is not updating since jan 1 2018
I have fixed this as well.

Re: Indentation in BBCODE

"icon.css" has been replaced. The spurious quotes are now gone.

I have also fixed the "indent" code with:

Code: Select all

<div style="margin-left: 3em;">{TEXT}</div>
Idea is from here.

Looks better now!

Re: What's with the private-message system?

I think a PM remains in the outbox until the recipient has logged in and seen it.
That's correct.

Re: SE-DesktopConstructor and SE-ColorMaker

It did not give me any error message at all. The other 2 attachments don't get listed - that's why I cannot delete them - but they DO show up in the posting. They just seem to exist magically without any reference to them. No inline code. No listing at the bottom. But they're visible on the rendere...

XSS vulnerability reported/fixed

A researcher ( eSecHax0r ) has reported a XSS (cross site scripting) vulnerability with TPFC: https://www.openbugbounty.org/reports/618344/ To be honest, I'm not an expert on XSS. After contacting the researcher and reading up on on the subject, I implemented a fix (incredibily, just a one-liner) wh...

Re: System Requirement Field Blank

Thanks for reporting this. Looking at it now.

[EDIT] Glitch and all affected entries have been fixed now. This is caused by a very recent fix to deal with a reported XSS vulnerability.

Re: ColorMaker

Please tell me whether my line of testing is correct. I replied to this topic, added 3 images as attachment, placed all of them inline, then click [Submit]. All the images seem to appear correctly. However, when I tried to edit my post, only the first attachment is present, and when I made minor mod...

Re: Thanks to TPFC

Thanks guys! I am still amazed by how far TPFC has come, and how it has evolved over the years.

I think we can all agree that TPFC is truly a group effort, with everybody doing their bit in molding the community into what it is today. And we are not done yet. :D

More good years!

Re: TPFC Database

Like it's presently the case with comments, how about deleting only those entries flagged by two or more users? Is this even doable and would it accomplish the desired result? :? I think it is quite feasible to use the current scoring system such that if the score is <= -5 (negative 5), we will fla...

I agree with @billon and @smaragdus that a forum topic submission should be a requirement for database entry. :!:
I agree it's a great idea too! I will get it done ASAP.

[EDIT] OK, I have implemented the change, and updated the new user FAQ to reflect this new rule.

Re: TPFC Database

OK, I have implemented the change so that private entries will only be visible to logged in users. If you are not logged in and try to access any private entry, you will simply be redirected to the home page. Now let's discuss the pros and cons of auto pruning older private entries. I have another t...

Re: TPFC Database

Yeah you caught something that I am also frustrated by. I'm working with Andrew on something for this and hopefully we'll have some resolution soon. How about this? I will add a batch job to automatically remove private entries that are more than 4 weeks old? That way, there will be ample time to m...
